Remove Color Bars from Top of Video

Post by drummer421 » Mon Dec 10, 2018 11:03 pm

Description of problem or question:
Hello! I've been working with handbrake for awhile and recently noticed that in the new versions of the software every video that I encode to mp4 has added color bars to the top of the video. How do I remove those? Any help is appreciated!



Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):




HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

1.1.2


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

There does not appear to be anything abnormal in the partial log you have provided. Please provide the complete log and a screenshot if possible.

A common reason for visual distortions is decoding errors. Perhaps try the nightly build; it uses a newer decoding library less prone to such issues.
