Command line suggestions?

Post by darqman »

Newbie here asking for help.

I was exporting TV episodes using HandBrake's UI. Then I discovered HandBrakeCLI.exe and decided to write a .NET Winform app to automate the process. Everything works great, but the older 70's shows are jerky when played. The newer programs play fine. This command line I'm using is below, any suggestions to improve encoding the older shows so the video plays smooth? My source is a the VIDEO_TS folder and the video is fine when playing the source directly.

--format av_mp4 --first-audio --aencoder copy:ac3 --markers --encoder x264 --vfr --quality 20 --decomb bob

Thanks

Use the built in preset that best suits your needs.

If you are having any issues please post your logs.

Your older TV episodes are likely Kinescopes. Try a Detelecine filter in Handbrake.
