Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

Has anyone else encountered problems ripping a blu-ray using anyDVD where it says it can't read from the drive, but the movie plays on players just fine? I'm having this problem with Good Luck Chuck and Black Snake Moan. Yep, I had problems with a few disc's, what solved it was moving to a better d...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

FYI, I will probably be updating iDentify to look for an [HD] or [SD] tag and tag it appropriately. If both the sd and hd flags are detected for the same title, they will be given identical cnIDs. Otherwise, the cnid will be left alone. This way, for those that use iDentify, They'll be able to remov...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

Well, I'm finally getting bd rips done thanks to this guide. Great resource. I just wish more of it could be done on the mac side. For those that want to automate tagging i really do recommend iDentify. Anyways. It was mentioned that iDentify could be using mp4tags to write the tags. This would be a...

Yep, i needed YASM. seems very easy to miss that in the wiki. Thanks for the help on that. Now that the HB svn is compiled, i finally got a good bd rip that will actually play on my ATV. Very nice picture quality. not as good as pure bd, but good enough when im feeling too lazy to get the disc. The ...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

can I ask what build you are using? my attempts to compile the svn result in errors when it gets to .contrib

EDIT: This is getting frustrating. all the svn builds I have tried fail to build for me.

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

I'm using the 0.93 public release. The conversion finished last night, and its gorgeous, but It's letterboxed. and near 6 gb. I didn't think the appletv was capable of streaming files that large. last I heard, the cap was 4 gb.

EDIT: Building the svn now. I'll give it a go.

I could copy it to my nas first and then to my mac, but that would take a good while for that much data. Anyone e...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

I guess my main question is, if there is no AC3 version availble, or there is a combo track, like TrueHD+AC3, how do I go about getting an ac3 track to work with? peters' post seems to imply that by specifying .ac3 as the extension for a audio track that eac3to will convert to ac3 while demuxing.

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

Actually, I'm using the remastered version. I returned the old one to the store in disgust as the abysmal picture quality. My dvd version had better pq than the original fifth element bd release.

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

So, simply specifying an .ac3 extension for the audio track converts it to ac3?

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

Could I get a bit more info on how you are using eac3to? I ripped the blu-ray Fifth Element using AnyDVD, fed the folder into eac3to and it extracted all the audio tracks as well as subtitle, chapters, and the video track. All the audio tracks have a .flac extension which tsmuxer doesn't seem to lik...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

Im not sure which ones the cnID and hDVD are. iDentify uses AtomicParsley. I'd reccommend at least giving iDentify a look. After its done tagging, you can always throw it back into metaX and tweak what you need tweaked. But I have found that I have never needed to do that, and I've tagged hundreds o...

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

7.) Use mp4tags (Mac) to set hdvd, stik, and cnID on both HD/SD files (for iTunes grouping to behave). 8.) Use mp4chaps (Mac) to add chapter track. As of SVN revision 265 of the mp4v2 library, the output from eac3to/ChapterGrabber can be fed directly into mp4chaps, so no modifications are necessary...

Re: slow FPS in 9.3, disappointed in the upgrade

If .92 didn't crash so much, id be using it instead of .93. Half the files that get output using the either the new appletv preset or the legacy one from .93 won't play on the appletv. They either wont sync/play at all, or only have a split second of audio right at the beginning when played on the a...

Re: Encoded movie isn't readable by AppleTV

I've been having this problem with a lot of movies too. the encode completes successfully and can be played on my mac, but the resultant file can not be played or synced on the appletv. I'll see if that framerate is the issue for me too.

Send File To... Feature

I know there is already a send file to MetaX feature, but I would like the ability to send it to programs other than MetaX when they are done encoding. I wrote a program called iDentify that is now available on macupdate, that takes files, and based on the info provided in the filenames, automatical...

Encode only when computer is idle

Now that handbrake saves its encode queue between launches of the program, I would like to see a a screensaver be developed that processes and encodes the contents of the queue while the computer is sitting at it's screensaver. I encode -a lot- of files, but handbrake eats a lot of cpu cycles, slowi...
