Re: Not encoding for just a couple files

The error you're getting can only come from one place, but I don't see the error message that should accompany it

Code: Select all

hb_error("av_read_frame error (%d): %s", err, errstr);
In any case, the cause is usually a damaged input file. Sumetime, but rarely, it can be a bug in the demuxer.

Re: Final burned in subtitles dont display

Thanks for reporting that. I'll have a look at the code and see if there is something I can do to fix it.

Re: Final burned in subtitles dont display

The duration of your video is 3:04. What are the timestamps of the last few subtitles in your SRT file? Maybe post a snip of the last few lines of your SRT so we can see.

Re: Add external SRT are very tiny (MacOS)

0.05 is 24 / 480 :wink:
mpv, totem, and vlc all ignore the font size on Fedora and show the subtitles in various slightly different sizes. So I don't have a way of testing this.

Re: Add external SRT are very tiny (MacOS)

It seems HandBrake or libav set always the same font size for every resolution. This shouldn't be an issue (it's not in Apple devices), but VLC 2 treats it as a normal text track, so it's small. A workaround for now is to use another app to mux in the subtitles. HandBrake is doing this. We set tx3g...

Re: .IFO file(s) not included in the m4v output

You are talking about DVD Menus. The MP4 file format does not support menus of any kind. MKV has some kind of menu support (https://matroska.org/technical/menu/index.html) but as far as I know, there is no player that has ever implemented support for them. But even if both formats had well supported...

Re: Documentation question

There are psnr and ssim tune settings that *disable* psycho-visual optimizations. The psycho-visual optimizations improve video quality but interfere with the objective measurement of the PSNR and SSIM metrics. I.e. you can end up with a lower PSNR value for video that subjectively looks *better* if...

Re: Files converting too fast causing horrible quality

Right, what WhatZit said. Most probable causes are you accidentally selected the wrong preset, or some GUI glitch made it use the wrong preset.

Re: "video time didn't advance" -> artifacts

This is caused by a bug in the mp3 encoder. For some reason it gives an extra packet at the end of an encode with the same timestamp as the previous, but only on Windows :roll: works fine on Linux. The file is pretty much complete. May be missing a frame or two of video at the end. But if you want a...

Code: Select all

The output resolution has been scaled way down. Did you do this?

... and i don't think you need the detelecine filter. The detelecine filter can sometimes lock onto a false pattern and cause jitter. It's best to only use it when you know the source is telecined. Looking at the log, I can see that the video is mostly *soft* telecine with occasional cut scenes wher...

Re: Any tricks for dealing with low quality source?

Oh, and since you're using constant framerate, you'll have to double the framerate setting for bob. Bob turns each field into a frame so doubles the framerate. If you don't have a device that chokes on variable framerate, I recommending just leaving the framerate setting on "Same as source" VFR. The...

Re: Any tricks for dealing with low quality source?

I couple of ideas come to mind. Try the bob preset in the decomb filter. Deinterlacing loses some spatial resolution. Bob increases temporal resolution which helps to make up a bit for the loss in spatial resolution. Try the nlmeans denoise filter. It's better (and slower) than hqdn3d. And it has a ...

A few screenshots of the type of image you are trying to clean up would be useful as well. There may be filter options that can be tweaked to focus on the particular problems with the image. But we need to know what those problems are to make suggestions.

Re: Subtitle Issue

Try disabling "Foreign audio scan". It's finding a candidate and that's what's getting burned in instead of any subtitles you selected. Your selection has been added as a soft subtitle track. And since your output is mp4 and the subtitle track is vobsub, some players won't even see this track. vobsu...

Re: Video delay on .mp4 files ONLY on Windows 10 Movies and TV

Some players don't properly handle an MP4 feature called edit lists. An edit list can be used to tell the player to delay a track by some amount. In the activity log you supplied, the audio actually starts 1.4 seconds after the first video frame. So an entry would have been put into the edit list to...
