Battlestar Galactica Season 1 Disc 2 chapter specific

Post by Aarroneous »

I've hit a wall trying to encode the 3rd episode of the Battlestar Galactica Season One (disc 2, chapters 5-6) with both the official release of HB, as well as the newest developmental build. I've also gone ahead and used MTR 3.0 to rip to the hard drive, but HB will crash immediately as encoding begins. The DVD and the rip both play fine on both a standard DVD player and the DVD player application on my MBP. VLC also plays that episode just fine as well.

Oddly, ripping the entire DVD at once works fine.

Settings are as follows:

H264/AAC, chapters 5 to 6, average bit rate 1800, 2-pass, anamorphic, audio set to AC3 track, Track 1 Mix set to Dolby Pro Logic II, 48Hz, 160kbps for audio. Tried with both Create Chapter Markers on and off.

Here's a summary of the log after the crash:

Any ideas?

Figured it out

It appears that the original DVD has some weird chapter jumping going on when using the title that gets automatically picked by Handbrake. The solution to create separate episodes is to simply select each individual episode's title as a distinct encoding job. Splitting up the large title into its component chapters results in the crash.
