Re: Problem with AC3 in .m4v

I have the same experience with Windows 7, and have yet to get 5.1 working from my encodes. The closest I get is with VLC, where it stammers through the audio track. But have yet to get something that will play happy. So far I've tried VLC, Windows Media Player and Quicktime. I know the 5.1 works as...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

fcmarriott, Have you tried the Windows version of MetaX? I know that would involve flipping back to Windows, but I've found that it's far more stable and it allows HD tagging for iTunes so that would save the second step in Subler. Good point; the Windows port of MetaX utilizes the mp4v2 library th...

VLC Version

I've been reading here that if you have the 32bit version of Handbrake, you should have the 32 bit version of VLC, and 64bit HB with the 64 bit VLC. Is this only if you need it for disc ripping? If not is it OK to mix? I ask as right now, I don't use HB for ripping, just encoding and haven't had an ...

Windows 7 HTPC weirdness

I have been using HB for a very longtime now, so I have many files converted from DVD and BluRay to the AppleTV and Universal Presets encoded with many versions of HB. Recently I've been playing around with a Home Theatre PC to try and replace many external devices, but have found a strange problem ...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

This isn't going to work as you need to convert the DTS-HD track before it goes into HB anyway. ClownBD, Handbrake and G.I. Joe all work fine, I never had any issues converting this movie.

How are you ripping the disc?

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

Thanks for the reply. I will leave the default blank for the AC3 output setting going forward. Am I correct in choosing the DTS master audio as the audio input? Or should I choose the separate AC3 (if it's available?) I am pretty sure I have the current versions of clownbd,eac,tsmux, etc., but I wi...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

Ok, I have hit a bit of a snag here. The first Bluray movie that I tried worked out well. The end product was beautiful. Now, the second 2 I have tried, Handbrake has crashed somewhere in the middle of the encode process. It will encode for maybe an hour or 2, I come back and it has crashed. (error...

I just updated the AppleTV to version 3.0, and the new iTunes for my iMac (You need to run Update 2 times to get it), everything is Streaming just fine.

Re: [ffmpeg bug] (SVN2829) Random Crashes

Do you know what could be causing this to happen, because without changing anything, I did other encodes last night. Just this one keeps crashing HB. I've tried even rebooting the computer, and just running HB, and it still happens.

Re: [ffmpeg bug] (SVN2829) Random Crashes

Thanks for the clarification about it being an intermittent bug, and not random, I now understand.

FYI, I gave up, walked away from the computer for 6 hours, didn't do anything except reopen HB and reload the cue, and it worked fine.

Re: (SVN2829) Random Crashes

Your crash report indicates this isn't a HandBrake bug. If it's fixed the next time we refresh libavcodec, great, if not, it will remain broken. It's also not "random" but rather clearly tied to vc1 decoding mmx instructions. Oh, if its not random, why does it happen at different times in the encod...

[ffmpeg bug] (SVN2829) Random Crashes

Hi I have been getting random crashes on the latest snap shot. Latest with a Rip of Watchman. I've tried it from a WD Passport, and a Lacie D2 as the source storage. After 2 resets I managed to get an iPhone encode, but the ATV seems to be a sticky point. I have an iMac 10.6.1 2.66 with 2gb Ram. Blu...

Not to push it, but ClownBD really does takes care of all of this guess work here, its totally fool proof. The only stitching issue I ever had was with Bolt, but this was from a version way back and is now fixed. ClownBD has come a long way since its first release, now it can extract audio cores, co...

Re: svn2592, 2713, 2725 Segmentation Fault with M2ts, vc1, dts

I'd highly recommend using ClownBD to do all the work to get files ready for Handbrake. The guy who created it keeps it up to date all the time. I haven't had a problem in a very very long time with files that are changed with this great front end.

Well then wouldn't the external drive from fastmac.com work fine? Becuase it CAN write to cd's and dvd's, and it's only $109! I have this one, stay away from it for ripping Blu-ray, it's only 60% successful. Same as the External LiteOn. I believe the Fastmac uses the Matsui (or something like that)...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

With the new Presets now in full force, I have found that dropping the quality down to RF22 or 57% is giving me a much smaller and better quality result than with the old AppleTV Preset. However I was quite happy with the file sizes I was getting before, so I upped the quality to RF21 or 59%, wow wh...

Re: Preset that is easy to decode.

Looking to watch some material on a netbook, are we? Universal preset should be fine. If you're planning on using Quicktime or iTunes for playback, DON'T.

Preset that is easy to decode.

Which preset in HB would be the best to use if I wished to have an output size of 1024x??? but be easy on an Atom processor to decode?
