Re: Add bit rate calculator?

HB can't reliably detect the actual length of the video, which is one of the reasons the target file size was removed. A bitrate calculator without accurate video length detection is useless.

MP4s larger than 4GB need to have the "large file size" or "64-bit MP4" box checked.

Re: Encode the size.. wheres the feature gone ?

If you're only using target file size because "that's how you've always done it", I strongly urge you to give constant quality a try. It's a significantly better compression metric.

Handbrake doesn't really do the target file size thing anymore. You can use the release version(0.9.5) which mostly does the target file size thing, but it might be a bit off.

There are many free bitrate calculators on the internet, or simply calculate it yourself.

Note that audio bitrate is included in total ABR ;?)
