With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask in the General Forum

Re: How to select 5.1 audio over stereo?

Selection behavior is defined by language and not channels, so this is currently not possible to automate. You can manually remove the stereo track(s) for a single encode on the audio tab.

Nothing too obvious in the log. If you can provide a small sample that exhibits the problem we can investigate further.

Re: How to denoise dark parts

None of those features have changed, but we did add two sharpening filters. Theoretically, you may be able to use stronger Deblock and NLMeans settings to the point details are starting to blur slightly, then add some sharpening to compensate. If you can provide a small sample from your source, mayb...

Re: Newbie needs help

MKVToolNix will combine multiple MKV files. You can use HandBrake to make them after conversion or better yet, use MakeMKV on the DVD directly, MKVToolNix to combine, then feed the combined file to HandBrake for conversion to other formats.

Re: Newbie needs help

If you’re still getting large files, you might want to look into the NLMeans denoiser. Its Tape tune is made for home video type material; can also use Film or High Motion.

Re: Newbie needs help

HandBrake does not combine titles.

DVD uses an older compression technology, so you can usually expect much smaller files with Fast 576p25.

Re: Presets: AppleTV 3 vs Apple 1080p30 Surround??

It slipped my mind before, but the legacy preset uses RF 20, while the newer preset uses RF 22. I suspect they will be nearly identical if you adjust this setting to match. See the Adjusting quality documentation article for information on how to change the quality setting and what values are best.

Yes, see the documentation for where to find the logs: https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.1.0/help ... y-log.html

To be a fair comparison, we will need one from the old version and one from the newer version, using the same source and settings.

Re: Presets: AppleTV 3 vs Apple 1080p30 Surround??

Moved to Mac forum.

Without seeing logs for the same source before and after upgrading, it’s impossible to say what’s causing the difference in file size with the legacy preset.

Apple 1080p30 Surround is the best modern preset for Apple TV 3rd Generation. :)

Re: Audio desync with PCM source

Hopefully John will have some time to look at this one. Will be easier to track if you will create an issue on GitHub.

Desync aside, the log indicates level 4.1 isn’t valid for the frame size.

VOBSUB in MP4 is a bit of a hack that many players do not support. Either burn them in or use the OCR feature in Subler if you prefer MP4.

We’ve had a few reports of this, and it appears to be Windows showing an incorrect value when it can’t detect the actual value. If the audio sounds fine, it most likely is.

Re: Unable to select output file

My understanding is that the split name/directory controls are necessary for sandboxing, which is something we've worked toward and aren't ready to abandon at this time.
