With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask in the General Forum

Preset audio sample rate reverts to 48 kHz

Post by andrewk89 » Wed Jul 04, 2018 6:50 pm

Description of problem or question:
I created a custom preset that I use as my default. The audio uses self-compiled HE-AAC, 64 kbps bitrate, Auto sample rate. I noticed the encoded videos were using 48 kHz sample rate regardless of the source.

For the default preset, after creating it, Auto sample rate is preserved on new encodes within the current HB session. But if you exit HB and launch it again, the audio sample rate reverts to 48 kHz. All other default preset settings are correct.

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
  • Add a video
  • Click Add a new preset
  • Edit Defaults for Audio
  • Set Sample Rate as Auto
  • Save preset
  • set Default on new preset
  • Exit HB
  • Launch HB
  • Add a video
  • Observe that the audio samplerate is "48", not "Auto" per the preset settings
