video format passtrough

Post by Moebius1 »

Bonjour,
It would be nice to be able to not reencode video stream if the video format is convenient.
For example, I record tv with kaffeine that produce a .m2t file with h264 video (good) and ac3 audio (not so good) ; so I just want to obtain a mp4 video with h264 video, already present and aac audio.
Using handbrake give no option to keep h264 video and so, video and audio must be encoded, something that would not be necessary, I think. It would be nice to have the passthru option for the video stream.
Anyway, thank's for this great job !
cordialement,

It has been explained many times, Handbrake is an encoder, not a muxer. Consult the internet if you do not understand these definitions.
If you are on Windows, test the trial version of VideoRedo, which is a muxer with encoding capabilities, thanks!
