Re: Can't open the file or gives me a "page" looking icon when finished converting

In the example you gave: [16:53:17] + storage dimensions: 336 * 460, mod 2 [16:53:17] + pixel aspect ratio: 20 / 11 [16:53:17] + display dimensions: 610 * 460 So it's displaying at 610x460 pixels. If you really want to (ab)use Custom Anamorphic, you can simply multiply the display width and height b...

Re: Can't open the file or gives me a "page" looking icon when finished converting

What I think is happening is that the older HandBrake version couldn't cope with the mastering errors in your source, unlike the newer version (which still prints a lot of warnings to the log). So the file works. If you want to increase the display size of your videos, ideally you should adjust VLC ...

Re: Can't open the file or gives me a "page" looking icon when finished converting

Aside from the read errors due to poor mastering by what I assume is a set-top DVD/AVCHD/Blu-ray recorder, it looks like the encode completed successfully. My first thought is, I wonder if MP4 or M4V files aren't set to open with your media player (probably QuickTime Player)? If you hold the Control...

Re: Can't open the file or gives me a "page" looking icon when finished converting

That worked, but it was an older log from HandBrake 0.9.9. Can you find the log made by HandBrake 0.10.2? The first couple of lines in the file tell you which version created it.

Open http://expirebox.com in your web browser and drag the file to where it says "just select file or Drag and Drop any file here". Then give us the download link.

So now that I updated it I went to change the custom size of the display and it won't let me select "Keep Aspect Ratio" when I want to change the "Display Width". I would have to deselect the "Keep Aspect Ratio" in order to change it to make the video image bigger. The other version let me do both....

Re: Can't open the file or gives me a "page" looking icon when finished converting

Thanks for updating to 0.10.2. The libdvdread CHECK_VALUE errors typically indicate a poorly mastered DVD. Set-top DVD video recorders, like the ones used to record television, typically make poor discs like this. Since the log is huge because of these errors, use something like http://expirebox.com...

Re: Can't reduce mp4 file size..

Activity log will help.

Your video could be really noisy/grainy. Try the NLMeans denoiser on light/medium (with a reasonable RF). It's slow-ish but does help reduce the bitrate of noisy videos.

Dxtory should be fixed in Libav master. I tested with your clip and it works. Unfortunately, their automated builds downloads are offline for the moment. Do you have access to a Mac?

While it's unfortunately quite common to find misflagged range, I have enough sources with misflagged color flagged to suggest it's not the only nail we could clobber.

Re: Handbrake 0.10.2 bug?

As nhyone hinted, with those settings you're actually getting 16 ref frames and 8 b-frames, which may exceed your playback device's capabilities. Try setting level 4.1 instead of 5.1/auto. Also, use x264 preset veryslow. Placebo may make you feel better but it is not any better than veryslow, which ...

This is especially true for low bitrate encodes. Seems to be where x265 shines at this point.

Not a terrible idea for the GUIs. Something like "override input parameters" or just "override input" with a toggle for tv/pc range and a drop down selection of color spaces would be good. Transfer/etc. could be inferred. We could extend this idea further to override the input fps, etc. Where to put...

Re: Dolby Atmos Not Working

Atmos is kind of like layers of individual sounds with positioning information rather than one track of everything baked together. If I recall correctly, it's implemented as an extension to a TrueHD or DD+ stream. Meaning your old receiver can probably play the TrueHD part and ignore the Atmos part....
