Re: Default for one audio track in AppleTV presets

Thank you, Rodeo, for both understanding my comments and clearly interpreting them for mduell. Since this issue effects EVERY user of the AppleTV presets, why do you have zero interest in implementing it? mduell: Yes, every user of the AppleTV preset wants to throw away a space wasting duplicate aud...

Re: Default for one audio track in AppleTV presets

Nothing, but that does not solve the problem... Typically, I am transcoding multiple files, some of which contain two track audio and some of which contain 5.1 audio. After the first file, when I then select APPLETV(1,2, or 3; typically 3 for all of the files) I want to simply select the SOURCE, and...

Default for one audio track in AppleTV presets

When Handbrake included a second audio track with 5.1-AC-3 passthrough, it was an inspired addition. The workaround for two track audio sources, was simply to manually turn off the duplicated second track. Now five years later, it is quite tedious to have to continue to manually turn off these secon...

Re: Join two file together after transcoding

Well, I have now, thank you... BUT: it quits on launch in Lion; which is not surprising for a program called AVIdeMUX. AVI is SO last generation! UPDATE: it does run in Snow Leopard, but: When opening an m4v file this dialog box appears: H.264 detected If the file is using B-frames as reference it c...

Re: Join two file together after transcoding

Yes, but unfortunately, in the days before I was "discless" I sometimes stored files over two CDs in 700MB files. Now, owing an AppleTV, I want to move these to one complete file in m4v containers.

Re: Join two file together after transcoding

Thanks for the suggestion and I downloaded the trial version, but it seems to only work with mp4 files and not the m4v files outputted by Handbrake in the AppleTV default.

Re: Join two file together after transcoding

As indicated above, I have an option: the legacy program VisualHub. However since it is not being upgraded since it Snow Leopard days (other than working with Lion/Mt. Lion) it is getting long in the tooth. My hope was that Handbrake would be a one step option; but, alas, it is not! If an alternativ...

Re: Join two file together after transcoding

Great tip to know, thank you! But: after using Handbrake to attach the .srt subtitle files in both files and seeing them in MPEG Streamclip on screen, they seem to be stripped out when I do a "Save As..." UPDATE: I also notice that MPEG Streamclip stripped out the AC3 5.1 2nd audio file, resulting i...

Re: Join two file together after transcoding

So here is what I faced when attempting to download MKVMerge: Note: I don't own a Mac nor do I have access to one. Therefore I do not support the binary packages available below as they were all contributed by third parties. Jonathan Buschmann provides a universal (32/64bits) package for Snow Leopar...

Re: Join two file together after transcoding

Seems that MKVToolsNix only works on Matroska files. I am looking for a more omnibus solution. Still using VirtualHub in this situation, when needed. Adding this feature to Handbrake would sure help all those out there who originally stored content on split 700MB files, to merge them (as well as tra...

Join two file together after transcoding

The legacy app, VirtualHub, has the feature that two (or more) files can be transcoded and then automatically joined together, resulting in one complete transcoded file (without any human intervention required in the midst of the action).

Does Handbrake have this capability?

Re: How to use Handbrake with Amazon Instant Streaming?

You mean like a BluRay license, which only gives you a license to view the content from their disc only, not to re-encode it or remove drm?

Is discussion of transcoding BluRay or installing VLC for ripping permitted on this forum?

Not a violation of Terms of Use if a member of Prime, which allows for repeat viewings.

Use MPEG Streamclip to "edit" the DVDs and save as whatever format is handy.

Re: digital download

What makes it especially confusing is here is a guy who is taking his complete BluRay library and getting forum advice on how to rip it in a way so that it will fit on an iPad that belongs to someone else! I don't think that he had to talk to his lawyer... https://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.php?f=...

Re: digital download

Thanks for the quick reply. Having looked it up, it appears that using Handbrake to make a copy, for say my iPad, is a violation of the copyright, but since it is for an iPad owned by me, to be used by me, there would be a defense to the copyright violation known as "fair use." What I do not underst...

Is that because the Handbrake rip is also not legal in the US?

digital download

If I own the DVD/BR can I just download a DRM-free version of a digital copy from a torrent site and save much time and effort?
