Audio saturates !
Posted: Thu Apr 19, 2007 6:31 pm
I encoded a DV file to DVD and it looks and sounds great. However, if I try to rip that DVD VIDEO_TS file with Handbrake, the audio saturates heavily. I never have that problem with commercial DVD's though. Any ideas ?

Are you encoding the audio at 48 khz?

No, 44100 Hz...
I actually just tried 48000 but it makes no difference...

Is the audio on the DVD PCM or AC3?

It uses codec A52 (which if I'm not mistaken is linked to AC3) ...
I converted from DV to DVD using VisualHub, which doesn't let me choose the audio codec unfortunately...
update: according to VisualHub's info menu, the audio codec used is "Uncompressed Little Endian" at 48000 Hz...

I partly solved my own problem:
Encoding using AC-3 instead of MP3 works flawlessly.
I'd still like to be able to encode using mp3 though without having to lower the original file's volume to 25%...
Any thoughts on this ?? Developers !

The available audio codec you encode to depends upon the container you choose from the File Format and then Codecs popups.
Only the sampling rate and bitrate are optionally editable --- and that should be true for HB/VisualHub etc.

Well, I wish VisualHub allowed me to choose the audio codec when encoding from DV to DVD but it doesn't.
I still find odd that Handbrake saturates the audio if I select the mp3 codec, and doesn't when I select AC-3 (at least only in the case of a DV-to-DVD file so far)
