Re: 0.9.3 Really Slow..

yeah me too, and I'm running an 8 core mac pro! reeeeeeally slow. I read the blurb about stuff and apparently the new version can access multiple cores during its processing...um...don't think it is doing it quite right... Are you ripping from the DVD itself or did you first rip it to your HDD. If ...

Re: 0.9.3 Completely Broken for Me

I'd say it's working as well as ever. Seeing 150fps here on x264 and over 400fps on ffmpeg. Encodes coming out as expected. There is a reason it's not performing as expected. Nobody has posted the requested information, so I dunno what you expect us to say. (notice red box above) What machine do yo...

Re: Updated to 0.9.3 and now no DVD's Rip???

I have VLC .9.6 installed and I'm having problems. The Hancock DVD stalls on chapter 39 using HB 0.9.3. However, it works fine using HB 0.9.2. I'm glad I didn't trash 0.9.2. Any suggestions? Rip it first using MTR or Fairmount/DETOX. I've seen this so many times in the forum, and 99% of the time if...

Re: Colors look horrible when using anamorphic (with log)

It still has to do the detection. Whether this slows down the encode or not is irrelevant - you either need the feature or you don't. Personally, once detelecine+decomb mature, I'm all for forcing them on permanently and removing the ability to configure anything. Rodney Hear hear! That will take a...

Re: HB Dev support

Thanks for the insight. I have never done any advanced programming, so unfortunately I can't lend a hand there. Maybe there's a way the devs could request specific features be tested with specific titles. That way more of us could lend a hand with QA.

HB Dev support

I've followed the development of HB for a long time. I think the developers need some kind of monetary support to make this development a little more worth it. Maybe something in addition to non-obtrusive ads. A donation page of some sort?

Yes, sorry it wasn't very clear. I'm assuming it's the newer build because of the date reported. Good to know that the 0/1 means stable/unstable.

Re: HandBrake Development Snapshot Build 2

My about menu on Snapshot Build 2 says: svn1477 (2008053101)
The about menu on the latest SVN build (svn 1488) says: svn1475 (2008060201)

The date shows newer in the SVN build (if the number is parenthesis is a date), but the svn number is different. Stupid question, but I was just wondering why.

Re: Ugly CRF encodes

I'll see if I can post a pic. Not sure how to get a screenshot off my plasma. I'd get one from QT, but it doesn't exhibit the same problem as the ATV. The only thing I know so far is that a 2-pass does not have the same problem. So there must be something else in my settings that is throwing it off....

Re: Ugly CRF encodes

OK I finally checked the results on my ATV and PS3 using the same plasma; both devices set to 1080P. I did brand new encodes of chapter 4 (where the problem is very noticeable). The encode with dynaflash's settings (I believe that's what you've posted above, Cav) plus merange=24 yielded the same res...

Re: Ugly CRF encodes

Thanks for the quick response guys. I'm at work now, running the tests at home without vbv (as I too thought that may be the issue). I will edit this post once I go over the results.

Cav, just for testing purposes, do you remember what your advanced settings were for that particular title?

Re: READ ME / POST HERE if a specific DVD/Movie won't rip

Try putting it through DTOX if you have it. If not, the only other free solution I know of that might fix your problem is RipIt4Me for Windows. I use it on my Mac through Parallels and it works wonderfully.

Excuse me if this has already been posted about but the only thing I could find about artifacts in 0.9.2 was on an XP machine and it seemed to be a machine specific problem. I'm running HB 0.9.2 on an iMac C2D 2GHz w/ 2GB RAM in 10.5.2. My target device is ATV running on a Panasonic plasma at 1080P....

Re: Best settings for posting vid to web

What have you tried so far? Also what format are you encoding to? I would probably start with a 2-pass ABR (MP4 H.264) at around 1000Kbps and go down from there.

Re: High Quality Apple TV DVD Rip

In my limited experience it's near impossible to get 100% DVD quality. You can certainly increase your bitrate for starters, and when you get more ambitious do a search for CRF, learn everything you can, and try an encode using CRF. Though the quality may not perfectly match the DVD, the convenience...

The .m4v vs. .mp4 extension depends on your prefs. You can check "Use iPod/iTunes friendly (.m4v) file extension for MP4" and this will give all your MP4 files the .m4v extension. That is important, because in my experience, .mp4 files encoded with AAC+AC3 won't open in QT unless you change the exte...
