Conversion quality isn't watchable

Post by ashavenass »

Description of problem or question:

I'm sure this has been covered but couldn't find the answer. I am trying to convert DVDs in Handbrake to place into my Mac "TV" app to watch later. I select the Source and have tried both "Universal" and "Apple TV" (I'm using a Mac) and then "Start". The audio on the final MP4 is fine, but the video quality is mostly just vertical lines...every once in a while you can see a quick decent view of the movie but the quality is awful. What am I doing wrong?

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
Version 0.10.5 x86_64 (2016021100)
When I try to upgrade, I get an error message

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

Mac iOS Ventura 13.0.01

I don't understand this question

Code: Select all
