Interlaced frames/fields support is not implemented

I'm getting this trying to scan episodes from the BBC Blu-Ray disks of Wonders of the Solar System, given the MKV output from MakeMKV. Activity log: [13:55:19] gtkgui: HandBrake svn3373 (2010060901) - Linux x86_64 - http://handbrake.fr [13:55:20] hb_init: checking cpu count [13:55:20] hb_init: start...

Re: UTF-8 BOM at start of .srt file not recognised

Update: svn3343 on osx shows the same behaviour, unsurprisingly. Unfortunately it crashed at the end of the test losing me my activity log before I could take a copy. It's late so I'll try to do it again tomorrow to get that (with it set to *save* logs this time), but watching it as it went I didn't...

Re: [PATCH] Basic SSA subtitle support

Think this might have broke building, at least on OSX for me. Link error with _hb_decssasub undefined. This is with a clean checkout of svn3342 on a core 2 duo mac, previously successfully used to build several earlier svn versions up to and including svn3339 yesterday. :-) Full log of build: http:/...

UTF-8 BOM at start of .srt file not recognised

If a UTF-8 .srt file begins with a valid UTF-8 BOM (ie: the byte values 0xef, 0xbb, 0xbf) the first subtitle is dropped and doesn't appear in the output. (Presumably because a line only containing digits isn't found, so it skips until it does find one and starts from there.) I had such a file. I eve...

Re: Do I use Strict or Loose Anamorphic?

But I don't tend to buy DVDs any more; rather blu-rays though I haven't got a ripping solution for that yet so I actually have to play the damn things. :-) Ah, go ahead and take the plunge. I was skeptical at first, but now ripping blu-rays (and encoding with Handbrake) has become my favorite thing...

Re: Do I use Strict or Loose Anamorphic?

I'm no expert when it comes to Handbrake (but the experts here will tell you if you make a separate post) but I don't think Handbrake changes colorspace any, or does anything else that could result in colors looking even slightly washed out. But post as a separate question (so they can see it) alon...

Re: Do I use Strict or Loose Anamorphic?

Well that's good. I'd written a nice long reply and was just previewing it for the last time when the forum software threw a wobbly and lost it all. Back-button on browser wouldn't work either. Oh well, I'll be more concise this time. :-} The High Profile preset isn't all about strict versus loose -...

Re: Do I use Strict or Loose Anamorphic?

I came at this from the opposite direction I guess; for a long time I've been struggling with what to do with my off-air recordings from BBC HD (1080i h.264), which since they changed their encoder last summer have such crushing optimisation settings that a lot of players have problems playing them....

Alter jobs waiting in the queue

Sometimes, I add an item to the queue, then add more, then realise I forgot something on an earlier item; eg: I didn't set the output filename correctly, or I didn't apply the decomb filter I needed to (don't seem to be able to make that permanent; that's another story), or didn't get an audio track...

[Known-minor] ETA calculation counts time spent paused

If you start encoding something, then pause... and keep it paused for a while... then resume, the ETA shows a massively too-long estimation of how long it's going to take to complete the encode. eg: 10 hours for a half-hour programme being encoded to AppleTV. Basically, it seems to count the number ...

Re: Any plans for an HD AppleTV preset?

Posting an update here because this thread came up on a google search for - well, pretty much the topic, but the non-answer given is now out of date. After reading this I thought, "I don't believe it, I'll make a preset myself", and went to do so but discovered that when I dropped a higher-resolutio...

I'll reply to the rest later. I'm supposedly at work now. :-} The opacity isn't in the options to Handbrake, but in obtaining the values to supply to those options from a DVD in the drive. :-) It just occurred to me that the Handbrake GUI is already good at harvesting that data, as well as the exact...

To explain "No" in a little more detail... I think you might be working under the assumption that the Mac GUI of HandBrake is a lot like the Mac GUI of mkvmerge, or ffmpegX or something. No such assumption; I'm not familiar with those programs. :-) The Mac GUI of HandBrake doesn't just generate a c...

Absolutely not. This is a perfect example of a request that benefits a very small (read: one) amount of the total user base.

I already use Handbrake a lot in OS X; but I'm about to build a fast Linux system to be a compute and RAID server for my in-home media empire :-) This machine will be considerably faster than my fastest Mac. Handbrake exists for Linux, but last time I looked it didn't have a GUI, and the CLI seems f...

In fact, if you are already using the newer iPod settings, you're in fine shape. Yes, I suppose I would be set if I wanted to watch base-line downscaled video on my 1080p monitor. Dude, if you are ripping from a DVD, the source is 480p (at best) anyway. Ripping to a bigger file size doesn't magical...
