With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

Adding Subtitle with Handbrake

Post by Motim » Fri Feb 17, 2017 5:44 pm

Hello,
While trying to add a subtitle to a downloaded movie, I first made a 2 minutes preview, the picture was bad, I think its called 'pixelated', it had many small squares everywhere. This happens for the first time, in the past, I got (with other movies) good results. So finally I used "Videopad" to add the subtitle with good results.

The movie is 1280 x 544, 649 kbs - 684 kbs, 23 frames/sec duration 1 hour 51 minutes.

Handbrake version 1.0.2
OS win 10 pro
I made all the settings as usual.
I ask your forgivness for the long text paste.
Any answers will be appreciated.
Thanks
Motim
