Re: EEDI2 Port

Well, I like the new threaded decomb v2 the best (only defaults compared). It's a wee bit faster, and the ouput looks better. So far only tested on Seinfeld. If there's any users out there who know how to patch, please do. Jon won't likely commit this until some more testing happens and I can't do i...

Is there any way Handbrake would support soft subs, like .srt files and not just DVD TIFF subs?

Handbrake to save streams

List of obstacles to get a 'save streams' check-box in the preferences.

  • Write the code with the proper license or find someone to do it
  • Convince the developers that it is a good idea
  • Convince them to commit it and/or hand around long enough to earn commit rights

Extra Audio Tracks on Apple TV 2.3

Apple has never given up any info on how the files are 'supposed to be' when using more than 2 audio tracks. Have you tried aac,ac3,ac3 ( the commentary being ac3)?

Re: [PATCH] Set audio track language

Confirm patch applies. I vote this goes in for sure.

aname + alang allows nano/classic to do alternate audio commentary. Just change the second english language to any other language.

Thanks for this.

Re: Constant Quality Rate vs Film for non-Apple use

The universal preset will give files that are easier to decode than the high profile presets will. If the playback computer will be used while watching films simultaneously, use the universal preset. Now that adds an interesting point of consideration. If I understood you correctly the "Universal" ...

How-To: Rip Pesky DVD's with mplayer (mac)

Mac users with command line experience may find ripping a dvd with mplayer useful. In fact, it can be the best option for ripping horribly mastered/encrypted discs when combinations of mactheripper, fairmount, dvd2onex, yadex, 0sex, and ripit fail. Subs and chapters will be lost using this method. ...

Upscaling isn't allowed in the GUI version. Use the command line if you must (but upscaling is a pointless waste of bits).

XBMC Issues

Yes, I did confirm it was XBMC. And with the new settings you guys have given me I've got the tearing down to a minimum on XBMC too. The only time it's a problem now is rapid flashes from dark to light (like lightening or a flickering light). Glad I was able to help a bit, at least. Share your sett...

Also, did the tearing go away? As far as the %, you just might have higher standard than me (or a really big TV you are...

You can turn off cabac and use only one ref frame & no bframes with x264. That would make decoding much easier.

What are your exact settings? When using x264 with a subme of 6 or greater and a decent bitrate it's pretty rare to see blocks

Deblock Problems with XMBC

xmbc sucks on deblock. try adding...

Code: Select all

:nf=1
to your x264 string to disable it. Or, instead, weaken the setting...

Code: Select all

:filter=-2,-2
That might help, not sure. But it will make the file easier for xbmc to decode.

Re: AppleTV and XBOX360 Preset

You probably don't need 2 pass at that high bitrate. And it takes a trained eye to see the difference between subq 7 and subq 9 at that bitrate also. So take it down to 7 or 6 for a speed up.

Chipmunk Audio & Bad Sync

Here's a log and vob sample named abs that has troubled me. The disc is a cheap exercise dvd 480x480 with mpeg2 audio. No luck encoding or even preprocessing with streamclip, then encoding.

The sample should be enough to troubleshoot and is just 2 megs.
