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: Move letterbox black bars to bottom (crop and pad blu ray rips)

We will need to see the logs from both encodes and your json preset to compare.

Re: Move letterbox black bars to bottom (crop and pad blu ray rips)

Could be a bug where we’re not properly overriding the preset. I’ll have to look into it more when I have time.

Re: Bizarre request - move letterbox black bars to bottom

Order typically does matter. Stick to input/source first, followed by preset stuffs, then other options (overriding the preset), then the output/destination.

Re: Bizarre request - move letterbox black bars to bottom

Ah. `--preset-import-gui` will be ignored if you do not have the GUI installed on the machine and run once, meaning you can't select the Super HQ 1080p30 Surround preset as your starting point.

Launch the HandBrake GUI once and see if that clears up the CLI error.

Re: Some questions about black bars and cropping them.

Hmm, I'm under the impression that PGS subtitles should scale keeping their appropriate aspect ratio; meaning not stretching or expanding weirdly, only getting larger or smaller to match the video dimensions. Please try updating to HandBrake 1.1.0 and let us know if you still experience odd behavior...

Re: please help

We require an activity log for support, please read https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.1.0/help ... y-log.html

Without it, it's difficult to know how to help you; we don't even know what HandBrake version you have installed. Once you have provided the log we can help more.

Re: Bizarre request - move letterbox black bars to bottom

It really didn't. "chapters: Invalid syntax (hapter:2)"

Also, I see "Failed to load GUI presets file" in the log. Just to clarify, you do have HandBrake 1.1.0, the graphical interface installed?

Just add -q=16 before the -o. I doubt you will see any difference from the default.

Re: Bizarre request - move letterbox black bars to bottom

@jcwillia1 --subtitle=none I'm a quality snob and believe -q 16 to be more than sufficient for just about anything. There's a reason the Super HQ presets use 16-18, depending on resolution. Even blowing up a DVD for projection... any artifacts seen are more than likely part of the original source, a...

Re: [indeo3 @ 0x80dd4a100] Invalid picture dimensions: 0 x 0! decavcodecvWork: avcodec_open failed

We just switched from Libav to FFmpeg 4.0 on git master, so this may be fixed. However, I have not yet tested on FreeBSD and the build dependencies in the documentation will be out of date until I do. You will need speex and lzma packages.

Re: Too high ETA for a DVD source on HEVC Matroska encode

HEVC is slow. Your speeds look about right. At higher qualities like what you’re doing, x265 isn’t much better than x264, so you might want to use the latter for speed.

Re: HandBrake: No Valid Source or Titles Found

This may be fixed by switching from Libav to FFmpeg 4.0, soon to be available in the nightly build and HandBrake 1.2.0. Unfortunately, the uploaded sample is no longer available. I'll be glad to test again if you can provide it, or simply test the next nightly build.

Re: Trying to convert Braveheart 4k 2160P to 1080P with the Dolby Atmos track

Try starting with the H.264 MKV 1080p30 preset and configure the audio selection behavior to pass through the Dolby TrueHD track.

Re: Need help: H.264 encoding results in a few scrambled sequences.

Shouldn’t have to recreate presets between 1.0.x and 1.1.x, so no worries there.
