Re: I need your opinion: Apple TV vs. Apple TV Legacy?

I actually do see detail improvement in the new preset over the old in those shots, though it is minor. However, it's very difficult to do frame comparisons between 0.9.2 and 0.9.3 simply because so much has changed in x264. it might be that in these frame captures the images look quite similar beca...

Re: Subler (like Muxo, maybe better?)

I've tried removing a subtitle track from and re-adding it it a handbrake-encoded x264-in-m4v file, but I always get an error saying that another app has modified the file since it was opened (if this is true, it certainly hasn't been my doing, I've no other apps doing anything with the file), and t...

Still need an activity log. If it happens under a range of settings, post logs of encodes using numerous different settings. But there can be NO (read: none at all, of any sort, other than asking for an activity log) support without a log, since that's where any and all pertinent information would b...

"what is happening" is also a support question. The Activity Log is necessary for us to figure out what the problem is. "What is happening" is prior to "how do I fix it."

Why not? It confirms that the people registering here are, at least on a basic level, capable of looking up reference information which saves a lot of support time.

Re: Dolby Headphone Encoding

Hey guys,

I've just been reading up on Dolby Headphone and getting rather excited about the possibilities. Has anyone heard anything about implementations of DH on macs or even encoded directly into the audio track of a video file?

Sorry for resurrecting such an old thread...

Re: about the "best settings" thread

The only thing is, most of the "best settings" in that thread were made with 0.9.2 (or even an earlier version, I don't remember when that thread was started). Anyway, 0.9.3 has different settings that work in different ways, and options such as CRF now work differently. What worked well in 0.9.2 is...

If that doesn't work, and there's a similar DRM to the one used on the Wall-E dvds, I'd recommend using either DTOX or the current MacTheRipper 3.0 beta to rip the disk. Try to play the disk in VLC first to figure out which title is the one you want to rip. This dvd will be so popular, it's hard to ...

Re: Blocking/Block Lines of distortion showing up in frames

70 is WAY too high. Seriously, your encode will be huge. Try 62 first, then if you're absolutely sure that you can tell the difference between that and the source, try 64.

Re: mp4 wont go into itunes

You need to change the file extension from .mp4 to .m4v. Apple products do not support .mp4, while just about everything does support .m4v. There should be an option in the preferences to have handbrake automatically do this when encoding into the mp4 container. For this encode, though, you just hav...

Re: Some Videos Are Hanging at Begenning of First Pass

First off, you need to update you built-in presets. Deux Six Quatre was trashed a while back. Better to use the newer presets tuned to work with newer x264 encoder versions, etc.

Re: This has to be the S L O W E S T piece of software...

Also, the AMD Sempron isn't exactly the most powerful processor. Using one of those, you cannot expect much faster encodes than that. x264 (which I assume is what you were using) is a very advanced but also resource-heavy encoder.
