HandBrake doesn't finish encoding while it reports 100,00% done

Post by daanbrg » Tue Oct 13, 2015 12:26 pm

Please describe the problem in as much detail as possible:

When converting *.wtv-files (TV-recordings made by Windows Media Center) in a queue, sometimes HandBrake will hang at the end of a file. While the program reports the file was encoded 100,00%, it will not advance to the next job in the queue. I've had this problem a few times before, and even when letting the system sit for days it will not actually finish.
The only way to have the queue advance is by removing the job from the queue. The resulting file will usually play just fine.

What are the steps to reproduce this problem:
Add a bunch of *.wtv-files to the queue, and use these settings to transcode them. (It still happens when using different settings, but you'd want to be able rule out things, right?)
I usually transcode anywhere between 2 and 40 files at a time.

The file I'm trying to transcode can be downloaded here. Careful: it's about 3,5 GB.

What version of HandBrake you are running:
The About-pane reports "0.10.2.7286 - 64bit Version". There are no updates available.

What operating system and version and you running (e.g. OSX 10.11, Windows 7, Ubuntu 14):
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit + SP1

Please include the scan or encode log:

Can you try a nightly build to see if that helps?

I could, but I want this queue to finish first. Might take another day or so, sorry about that ;-)

In the meantime: could you point me to the right place where I can obtain a nightly build?
(Also, can I install that side-by-side of the current version?)

Nightlys are here:

It's still broken in the nightly build! :-(

Sometimes, HandBrake will stay static for days with a queue that looks like this:

Let me add to this that the audio is often missing from files that do not finish encoding properly in HandBrake.
The originals always have audio in this case.

At this point, I don't know if this is a HandBrake thing or if the blame is more on the just-outside-standards implementation of MPEG-2 encoding by Windows Media Center in its *.wtv-files. But that's a different discussion, I guess.

I have witnessed this behavior before.

Originally when looking at your files, I figured it may be a filetype problem, however I have never used that filetype.

That it happened on me before sometimes (and I observed the behavior that the countdown would hold at a similar crazy value once 100% had been reached) makes me think it is some kind of exit method and/or muxing error right at the finish.

May still be connected to filetype in this case though as it only happened me sometimes so I didn't think it was worth reporting.

EDIT:
I notice in your log files you have a single instance of:

"sync: video time didn't advance - dropped 1 frames (delta 0 ms, current 3600, next 7200, dur 3600)"

and a lot of:

"encx264 input continuity err: last stop 21314335 start 21317935"

It may be something to do with that as I think the files I was using with similar problems had the first issue (but never witnessed the second before until now).

2 Points.

1. If you have a (preferably short) sample of a file that reproduces, please post it.
2. Recorded content is notoriously bad for errors. While HandBrake attempts to recover from some of the more common errors, it can not handle every case so it's worth running transport streams through a fixer app first to ensure a good encode. Note, if your able to do #1 we can look see it's worth fixing or not.

I do not have a short file that encodes badly, unfortunately. I can make the entire file available like last time, if that helps?
Also: do you know of any fixer apps?

VideoReDo's Quick Stream Fix is recommended. Costs money after the trial period.

@mduell Unfortunately it refuses to read WTV-files. I guess I chose the wrong DVR software... ;-)

Videoredo TV Suite (h264) works well with most WTV files.
The Quick Stream Fix option should be used preemptively on all DVR/PVR files and discs, regardless of software or hardware acquisition.
Handbrake's decoders, unfortunately, do not have much tolerance for transport stream errors.
