I'm experiencing the automatic cropping feature to be quiet unreliable as it often not only removes the black bars but real video content as well, especially when clips contain different formats which is widespread among older DVD bonus material. Let's say there is 4:3 and 16:9 footage mixed together, the program seems to rather choose to crop instead of scanning the largest frame all over the footage.
What are the steps to reproduce this problem:
Download this sample video https://we.tl/N8J7RFj2P6 and watch the preview in automatic cropping mode. HandBrake will make it a 16:9 image which would shrink the 4:3 upper and lower picture fields. This occurs randomly for mixed 16:9 and 21:9 footage as well.
What version of HandBrake you are running:
What operating system and version are you running (e.g. OSX 10.11, Windows 7, Ubuntu 14):
Mac OS X 10.11.6
