Re: Blu-ray support?

If you're running semicurrent SVN code, then you shouldn't have trouble. If you're running 0.9.3, you might get it to work in part, but not fully. This assumes that you're decrypting it using something else (AnyDVD HD) -- there is no open source Blu-ray decrypter that supports all titles, especially...

Re: Handbrake better compression results than iTunes???

The H.264 encoder that most studios would use for iTunes is Compressor, which uses Apple's H.264 encoder, which is...not very good. Handbrake uses x264, which is widely recognized as the best encoder available, both commercial and non-commercial.

Wonder if anyone else has seen this yet. I have a few .m4v files that I had muxed subtitles into using muxo.

Re: Handbrake Crashes with Harry Potter...

Cool, this is a variant of the infamous 'MKV issue' -- you have H.264 in the file you're trying to convert, and Handbrake crashes. It's due to a bug in the H.264 decoding library Handbrake uses, we have a patch in development code.

Re: adding ipod atom

iJoel wrote:AtomicParsley, although it needs to be compiled from the SVN.
Then in the CLI:
"atomicparsley --DeepScan --iPod-uuid 1200 filename.mp4".

I believe that should work, although I've never had to do it.
FYI there's builds in the MetaX package

Re: Faster Mac same settings slower encode? Help!

There's no way in hell you're using the same settings, the settings you're using in this log are insanely high for a Mac Mini, you wouldn't even really be able to encode. Post a log from the Mini, and we can actively point out whats different. EDIT: nvm, realized you forgot tags and there were multi...

Re: Feature Request: Completion time fix

Sorry for posting here, but the Trac is pretty locked down so I can't post there. This is a minor feature enhancement, but would be useful. Currently, the estimated time to completion appears to be based off the time since an encode started. So if you pause an encode, or if you put your system to s...

without an activity log? no [Censored] clue. are you trying to stream right now? because the older HB would have done lower bitrate, meaning lower quality, but also easier to stream

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

Definitely use SubCleaner (http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Word-Proce ... aner.shtml) on your SRT before using Subler. It is intended for use with the AppleTV, and does an excellent job of making my SRT files look fine in Quicktime.
