Re: Uploading DVD's to Handbrake

I'm not familiar with Motionbox, but if they do not support MP4 and MKV containers (ie only AVI), you will need to either use HandBrake 0.9.3 or another tool besides HandBrake.

Re: Can't choose from all available DVD audio tracks

I am confused as to why you are working directly with the VOBs and not the source DVD, from which chapters and other important data are derived from the IFO files.

Re: libsamplerate/libvorbis: newer versions are available

I would expect FAAC to fall between Nero AAC and MP3, depending on bitrate. Anything above 160kbps ABR is unachievable with FAAC (obviously).

CoreAudio AAC I'd expect to be quite competitive with Nero AAC, largely owing to the latter's lack of updates in over a year.

Re: Quality and file size

MP4 and MKV are both containers, not codecs, so they have no impact on quality (only the features supported - for instance, DTS can only be directly embedded in MKV). The choice is usually one of personal preference combined with target device compatibility (a lot more devices today support MP4 than...

Re: Green Video with 0.9.4

See the large red box at the top of every forum on how to submit an activity log.

"Your" Applications folder is ~/Applications, you should copy the VLC binary to /Applications (the system Applications folder).

But you think LAME can produce superior results to FAAC at sane bitrates?

Re: How come no DTS or 5.1?

HandBrake does not convert DTS to AC3. It can pass AC3 through in MP4 containers and additionally pass DTS through in MKV.

Re: Green Video with 0.9.4

Without an activity log, it's difficult to say whether you are failing decryption (remember VLC must be in /Applications, not ~/Applications, and not in a subfolder!) or a region lock.

Re: Encoding for WD TV Live

It's a clear bug in the WDTV code, there's no workaround possible with HandBrake (or any other encoding tool).

In fact, it's one of the reasons I don't own one right now.
