Hi jbrjake,

I will give it a shot.
Although I managed to build this version it took me some time to realize the YASM thing in order to compile. However reading the instructions worked for me. As can read I'm a bit of a noob in compiling Handbrake and I will go through the documentation on how to compile a x86_64 in the terminal.

Tried it with x-code but that fails on me. As soon as find the right terminal commands I will build it and do the same encode again.

From the trunk:

mkdir 64build
cd 64build
../configure --arch=x86_64
make -j8

Thank you jbrjake worked like a charm!

Had to do a clean checkout so this is based on svn2314 x86_64

Same setup
Machine Type: MacPro early 2009 (Nehalem)
CPU Speed: 2.26ghz
Number of CPUs : 2 x 4 cores
Rip Format (MP4, AVI etc) : MP4
Encoder: H264
Video Size & settings: Picture Size: Source 720x480, Output: 720x352, Anamorphic 838x352 Loose
Quality / Bit Rate: Constant Quality 58.82% RF 21.00 (AppleTV preset)
1 or 2 Pass: 1 pass

Min/Max or Average Frames Per Second (FPS): Avg FPS 121.50 instead of 111,17

CPU usage is around 55 - 61% instead of 55%
8GB RAM
Video TS on source Primary HD
Encoded movie saved Secondary internal drive.

Handbrake: svn2314_x86_64
Source: Quantum Of Solace (Region 1)
Running Time: 1h46m07s
Encoding Time: 0h21m instead of 0h22m
Preset: AppleTV

In both instances for the 32bit and 64bit version CPU usage dropped at certain chapters (for instance Chapter 25) to around 40%. Looking at the film chapter 25 is a very intense and active scene with fire/water and a lot of action that might explain it.

I have placed my activity logo below. Anyway I 'm really pleased with the result (just switched from a dual 2.7Ghz G5 so imagine the difference from couple of hours to minutes).

Re: Early 2009 MacPro Octo 2 x 2.26Ghz (Nehalem)

Post by cheerful »

I've just tested the previous stock Mac Pro (early 2008, 2 x 2.8GHz) using the updated AppleTV Preset with 0.9.3

Just wanted to add my input to this discussion. The quick and short summary, your machine is faster, a mere bit quicker if I may add.

Very impressive for a 540MHz difference, speaking very superficially cause besides the CPU difference there're quite a few major changes in the new CPU.
All 8-cores utilized. CPU usage rarely dips below 94%.
FPS range from 100 to 150 but avg was approximately 120.

I do not think my machine is faster than certain other Mac Pro’s from previous generations. I can imagine that there are numerous factors that will influence encoding time/speed that are not necessarily hardware related.

The previous test was done on the Region 1 version of Quantum of Solace that I bought during my trip to the USA the other week. With this disc I noticed that the video size was different compared to the majority of Region 2 discs. If there were more information to encode I would guess it would have to take longer to encode.

Anyway I’m just a happy user and must stay away of stuff that I’m not knowledgeable of. Handbrake just keeps on improving itself and keeps on getting better, just like the hardware.

Below an example on a different encode.

Source: Transformers (Region 2 Pal)
Running time: 02h.17m.38s

CPU Speed: 2.26ghz
Number of CPUs : 2 x 4 cores
Video TS on source Primary HD
Encoded movie saved Secondary internal drive.

Rip Format (MP4, AVI etc) : MP4
Encoder: H264
Quality / Bit Rate: 58.82% (AppleTV preset)
1 or 2 Pass: 1 pass

Video Size & settings: Picture Size: Source 720x576, Output: 720x432, Anamorphic 1033x432 Loose

Handbrake: 0.93, svn2314 i386, svn2314 x86_64

0.93
CPU usage is around 51% - 57%
Encoding time: 43m
Avg fps: 78.98

svn2314 i386
CPU usage is around 50% - 55%
Encoding time: 41m
Avg fps: 84

svn2314 x86_64
CPU usage is around 55% - 60%
Encoding time: 37m
Avg fps: 92.35

Yeah, we really need to follow-through on dynaflash's testing repo idea. Hard to tell what's going on from these new vs. old Mac Pro stats when encoding different content at different resolutions...

Indeed, I've actually taken that in consideration before posting then I decided not to be too detailed. I can be too detailed at times. There are simply too many variables. Even though GPU may not be a factor but it still helps to have identical GPU, OS, RAM type etc to ensure an as fair testing as possible.

Bottom line for me, just simply run a real-world situational test with as controlled environment as possible. Results may not be as accurate but as one can generally make a fair enough assumption and conclusion with an acceptable range of tolerance.

I tried this on my new computer. I compiled successfully on my old iMac but on my new Mac Pro 4-core Nehalem I can´t compile. Here is my errors, I tried to post my entire log but it was to large:

Code: Select all

The following build commands failed:
external:
	ExternalBuildToolExecution external
HandBrakeCLI:
	Ld ../64build/HandBrakeCLI normal x86_64
HandBrake:
	Ld ../64build/HandBrake.app/Contents/MacOS/HandBrake normal x86_64
(3 failures)

make: *** [macosx.build] Error 1

That log is useless since you haven't included the part that actually failed. Lacking any useful info, I'm going to assume that you've chosen to disregard the prerequisites and the FAQ and as such x264 is failing from a lack of yasm.

This thread is not for help compiling -- in fact, no thread is, since we don't support it. Please stay on topic.

Hugeman,

There are better instructions for compiling to be found bundled with the source code rather than in the wiki. Perhaps you should run through the steps again for the sake of completeness. jbrjake's code on the 64 bit compile works like a charm on my iMac. Good luck!

I got it to work today. I compiled my own version of YASM 0.8 and installed, first I used a pre-compiled version of 0.7.1. After that it worked just fine. Thanks anyway.
