Re: Using wrong Target size (MB)

I'd wager it's probably a UI bug based on the description. Either way, it's an old unsupported version so it won't be fixed if it is.

@thanhtruong Nothing you can do until hardware is upgraded to support newer versions. Just restart the app each change if that works.

Re: Is NVENC better than 6 cores?

Either way, try it out on the RTX4000 and you can make a judgement wither you find the results acceptable or not. There is a level of subjective-ness in these things anyway.

Re: Is NVENC better than 6 cores?

It makes sense that my system would perform only to the level of its least-capable component if everything happened in parallel. However, the docs state (emphasis mine) "Every stage prior to and after video encoding including decoding, filters, audio/video sync, audio encoding, muxing, etc., is per...

Re: Is NVENC better than 6 cores?

First point, while NVEnc is typically faster (usually a lot faster than that kind of CPU), it can be heavily bottlenecked by a slow CPU since decoding, filters, audio etc are still all on the CPU. I would be surprised if your CPU doesn't slow an NVenc encoder down a fair bit. Second point I'd make i...

Re: H.265 NVENC High bitrate-same quality Handbrake 1.3.3 vs 1.2.2

Rate Control methods are not the same between 1.3 and 1.2 . Thus 32 in 1.2 does not equal 32 in 1.3. The scale has changed. 1.3 uses a more efficient rate control method, thus you'd need to adjust the quality slider to get acceptable results accordingly. Generally speaking, that should lead to 1.3 f...

Re: MP4 files appearing as "Stereo.mp4" on TVs

1.2 or 1.3 (I forget) introduced a change to the way audio tags are written. If using earlier versions of HandBrake, you would not have this problem.

That change, was to resolve issues with other players having problems with the audio track naming.

Re: MP4 files appearing as "Stereo.mp4" on TVs

If your happy with MKV, you might try using MKV output direct in HandBrake rather than MP4. Save using 3rd party tools to convert.
Afaik, it's only MP4 files that twonky takes issues with.

Re: MP4 files appearing as "Stereo.mp4" on TVs

This is a problem with the Twonky Server. It's reading the audio track name as the title.

The only way to fix this is to use a tagger to add a video title or remux the file to drop the audio titles off the file.

Re: Incorrect Handbrake Metadata for Twonky Server

If the video title tag is NOT populated, Why is twonky using the audio track title? That really doesn't make any sense to behave like this. Most other software either displays the filename or nothing in this case.

Re: Incorrect Handbrake Metadata for Twonky Server

Twonky is reading the tag out of the audio track. Please raise this with twonky.

The tags written are correct.

Re: Audio Problem and Also Can't Update Software

The ubuntu repositories are still updated but likely not for much longer.

That said, we don't support native builds on ubuntu 18 as it's simply to old to support the current version of HandBrake.

Using flatpak is therefor the only option.

The NVEnc engine is the same as turning in this case. Turing has some improvements over pascal but is still an encoder that's optimised towards speed.

technically yes, since we need to mux video into an output container. However, it's not designed to be a track muxing tool. The capability to pass through video does not exist in HandBrake and is not simple to add since the processing engine is designed for transcoding, not pure muxing. This isn't s...

Re: API for libhb?

There is no formal documentation for libhandbrake at this time. It's not really used outside HandBrake at this point.

You could look at how the Windows or Linux UI uses the API as an example.

Re: Why Handbrake?

HandBrake is not a muxing tool and should not be used as one. Your basically throwing away quality if your already otherwise happy with the files. In otherwords, sounds like you've been wasting your time re-encoding with HandBrake. A simple mkv muxer would have sufficed and be much much quicker than...

I just did a quick test. The output file 1 pass vs 2pass is identical. It looks like it is just running the encode twice on linux which is a waste of electricity.

Re: 2-pass H.265 NVENC Encoding - Windows vs Linux

Then something else is different. 2-pass is literally doing nothing on Linux. Either a setting is different, or maybe the drivers aren't behaving consistently, or the default preset for the underlying encoder is different on Linux vs Windows. I'd also note, RX2080 vs 1070 will give different results...

Re: 2-pass H.265 NVENC Encoding - Windows vs Linux

2-pass under linux isn't doing two pass. It's just wasting CPU cycles on the first pass decoding frames. It's an bug in the GUI if it's displaying the option. The hardware doesn't support true 2-pass encoding. They have a "pre" analysis "2pass" mode which can be enabled in extra arguments "2pass=1"....
