Re: H.265 10-bit RF16 Slow is not giving sufficient quality

The only way to get "no difference" is to not re-encode. The video was already encoded once going to the BD; you cannot get back what was lost in that encode. You might try doing the encodes in x264 rather than x265; the benefits of h265 encoding are small at 1080p or less, unless you're shooting fo...

Re: Handbrake encodes the audio but not the video

There have been some issues with the server for the nightlies from what I read over on github, "to be resolved shortly". The developers would have more information on that than me.

Re: Handbrake encodes the audio but not the video

The nightly build version you have has some issues that were fixed more recently. This topic was about the same thing; nightly builds after August 5th should incorporate the fix.

Are you trying to encode it while it is downloaded, or are the "next files" already local?

Re: Need help making video go from 136mb to 50mb

Wild ass guess, you need to adjust some settings or chose the proper preset.

More detail requires more detail, like the log that shows us what handbrake saw when you loaded the source.

Re: Curiosity

Yes, I probably won't see EVERYTHING at 70TB, but I have watched over half of the 40TB on it now. Much of it multiple times.

I'm actually LESS likely to watch MOVIES (I buy those for others to watch).

And, so far, nothing has killed Curiosity.

I use it to delay increasing the size of the NAS as long as possible. I have maybe 18-24 months left on the 70TB NAS (55% full right now), after filling a 28TB in 3 years. Maybe by then I can replace the current 10TB drives with 20's at a reasonable price. This assumes I continue to resist the tempt...

Re: AAC 640kbps

It would be MUCH simpler to make wild-ass guesses at what your issue is if we had activity logs to show us what your source is, what version handbrake you're using, and what operating system you're on.

Are you looking to get 640kbps per channel? Or overall 640kbps for a multi-channel track?

Re: Not ripping all of the DVD contents

Handbrake is not a disk ripper. Therefore, it does not give good diagnostics when the unsupported 3rd-party library you added to force it to rip disks encounters read errors. Programs that are intended for ripping, like MakeMKV, at least give you better diagnostic; handbrake just assumes the title e...

Re: Keep source dimensions by default

Depending on the preset you select, there might be maximum dimensions set. For example, if the preset has "1080" in the name, the output will have a maximum of 1080 pixels high, while "480" would limit it to 480 pixels high. If the preset does not have a maximum resolution included, it won't change ...

Re: How to select audio&subtitles passthrough by default for all tracks?

Modify the defaults (there is a button on the audio and subtitle buttons to set defaults) to select both (any) and (unknown) language types, add all matching tracks, and then save a new preset using those defaults.

When that preset is active, all tracks should be selected.

Re: Size subtitles

As mentioned above, this has to be done with an external program; handbrake itself does not "expose" the settings for rendering text subtitles, and SRT subtitles do not have that as part of the "spec". Conversion to SSA allows you to apply font controls to the subtitles.

RAM tests are usually a pain in ... Because most of them require you to shut down the operating system so it doesn't get in the way, and then they don't really stress it when they do the test.

Re: VLC and Handbrake

If you're encoding a 1080p MKV file ripped from a bluray, it is unlikely that it would have UTF-8-encoded subtitles, so we really need your activity logs to find out what handbrake saw. None of the normal assumptions can be made.

Does it crash if you use the software x265 encoder? It is helpful to isolate what part is broken.

Re: Handbrake hangs when encoding h265 QS

Turn off QSV decode in preferences.

The hardware decoder is not much faster than the software x264 decoder, but it is far less tolerant of "source issues". You probably won't notice the difference in speed, even when using the QSV encoder.

Re: FreeBSD Jail Install Illegal variable name

That would explain things, because csh would require the variable to be "set", rather than just the assignment.

Code: Select all

set FOO="bar"
The FreeBSD pages say tcsh is the default shell for root, with sh being default for non-root users.
