First 5 sec are grey in Quicktime x

Post by alehel »

I just encoded a copy of my dvd Battle of Planet of the Apes. When viewing the file in Quicktime X, the first 5 sec are completely grey, then it starts to break up a bit, and then the actual picture shows up. I'm posting three images here so you can see exactly what I mean.

The interesting thing is that the video plays back flawlessly in Quicktime 7, VLC and Plex.

This has happened to a couple of other movies, but unfortunately, I didn't watch them straight away, so I didn't keep the encode logs. I do have the log for this one though.

For this particular endode I used RipIt to get the dvd over onto the hard disk first, but on earlier movies, I ripped streight from the disc, so I presume RipIt is not the culprit. Also, I tried watching back the RipIt files in Apples DVD player, and they worked like the original discs did.

I've still got the other 4 planet of the apes movies in my encode que, but once they are done, I will try and reencode and see if I get the same result every time I try this disc.

Doing this on Mac 10.6.5 using the 64-bit Handbrake nightly build nr svn3703

[EDIT] I've just gone through all the encodes I've done the last 7 days. I've done 19 movies and roughly 50 or so various tv episodes. Only two other films have this problem. Harry Brown and the first Planet of the Apes film. I will try and reencode and see if keeps repeating itself.

Re: First 5 sec are grey in Quicktime x

Know issue. Also, if you uninstall Perian you'll likely notice the same issue in QT 7.

You can work around it by adding qpmin=10 to your advanced x264 string.

P.S. the issue (which, technically, is a QT bug) was introduced in x264 r1804, which was committed as svn3697, 3 days ago.

Thanks. Seeing as this is a QT bug, I won't worry anymore about it. I rarely use it. I was just worried this might mean there was something wrong with my files.

Forgive my ignorance :p, but I thought x264 had qpmin at 10 by default. Has the new builds of x264 changed this value, thereby producing this qt problem?
