xbox 360 to xvid with ac3 stutters

Post by llyenn »

Hi. just switched over to OSX from Vista, and found out about handbrake from a friend. I used to use DVD Fab Decrypter on my Vista box to do my xvid encoding, but I am trying to do everything natively in OSX.

My current issue is as follows. I typically rip movie only, with automatic cropping, anamorphic settings depend on the move, and CBR set to 2000. I rip to xvid for the xbox as it is the only contained to support AC3, and that is the audio stream I want. So, I set handbrake to AC3 passthrough. It converts. I play it on the xbox, and the stream stutters terribly. I have tried this with several movies, and I also verified stream info on some older movies that I ripped with DVD Fab that work flawlessly.

Does anyone have any ideas? I saw another thread that was similar but no solid resolution and it sounded different enough to me. TIA!

maybe because you're using a crappy deprecated codec with an even [Censored] ancient container on a crappy torrented source.
