Re: VHS importing and cropping

Is that a Firewire digitizer?

What software are you using to convert the VHS to digital ("import")?

Does this software have the export to Quicktime function that you are using?

Re: HandBrake freezing on HDML Cloner Box transcode

I tried the nightly and it froze at exactly the same point: 2.89% I did the math and that means that something was suspect at 3 minutes 15 seconds into the video. At that point I noticed a severe video and audio dropout from the digitization which was causing HandBrake to choke! I found two other su...

Re: HandBrake freezing on HDML Cloner Box transcode

Could you explain to me the concept of the "nightly build" and how I would obtain it?

Re: HDMI Cloner Box and AAC Audio Pass-Thru

The "Subler" workaround suggested is causing a "big" problem, rendering it unusable. One of the reasons to use Handbrake is to transcode it to 30fps instead of the raw 60fps, which results in a major file size savings (I use the AppleTV or AppleTV3 pre-sets). My original "sample" file is 21.7 Mb. Af...

Re: HDMI Cloner Box and AAC Audio Pass-Thru

Thank you for a workaround suggestion "in the meantime:"

In Subler 1.0.9, I see how to remove the offending track, but I see no way to copy and paste the original audio track.

Re: HDMI Cloner Box and AAC Audio Pass-Thru

Is the stream actually changed or just some header in the container? Either way it would be Handbrake causing this change so as to not allow Quicktime or AppleTV to play back the AAC sound. So a modification must be made to Handbrake to fix the problem so as to render "pass-thru" functional again i...

Re: HDMI Cloner Box and AAC Audio Pass-Thru

Put in fewer words:

Handbrake's pass-thru feature for AAC appears to be changing/corrupting the AAC portion of the file.

Will Handbrake be fixed to allow a pure pass-thru?

Re: HDMI Cloner Box and AAC Audio Pass-Thru

Thank you for your reply. However, the raw file plays correctly in Quicktime and on the AppleTV (both audio and video). Handbrake's pass-thru setting is supposed to copy the AAC file unaltered to the new file, yet according to Rodeo, the resulting file is the offending version, AAC-LTP, which will n...

Can it be fixed?

The raw file and then the Handbrake'd file with AAC-passthru; which has no audio in QuickTime.

I am still interested in your reviewing the raw file to see why the Audio pass-thru is not working correctly. How can I get it to you?

HDMI Cloner Box and AAC Audio Pass-Thru

Please detail your question or problem in as much detail as possible: I am experimenting with the HDMI Cloner Box to capture content from devices with HDMI only outputs. My initial experiments are with the Box set to output 720p; I will experiment with 1080 later. The raw output is MPEG-4, Baseline...

Re: Default for one audio track in AppleTV presets

Yes, the Broadcom card will allow the original Apple TV to play back certain forms of HD content. It costs $15 from Amazon. A refurbished AppleTV3 can be purchased for $59 from the Apple Store. The $15 is better spent towards the AppleTV3 or AppleTV4 and you still have your original silver AppleTV t...

Re: Default for one audio track in AppleTV presets

The AppleTV can be set for digital audio input which will work from my experience when there is only one digital audio track available.

I wasn't aware of the iPhone, iPad audio limitations, which I suppose is an additional reason why they have their own presets.

Re: Default for one audio track in AppleTV presets

Ah, no audio; thank you!

I presume that a DVD player then also sends AAC or some analog equivalent to a TV so that it will also play audio in a non-home theater situation?

Re: Default for one audio track in AppleTV presets

Rodeo: Just curious, why doesn't the AppleTV presets then just pass-thru only the 2 channel AC-3 digital audio track and instead by default add an inferior AAC track as well?

Thank you for this clarification.

I am still interested in having the option of: "a checkbox for that (appl...
