AC3 Codec & Batch Processing

Post by Tonypate » Sat Dec 08, 2018 2:35 pm

Description of problem or question:

I am new to handbrake and would appreciate some advice. I have a sonos sound system and in order to play my converted dvds in mp4 format the audio has to be ac3/dolby digital format. Acc codecs will not play in 5.1 only stereo.
When I look at handbrake codec options there appear to be 3 options. They are AC3, Ac3 pass thru, Auto pass thru. I would really appreciate some advice as to which one to choose bearing in mind that I want the highest quality for picture and sound.

Secondly, I have many hundreds of dvds to convert from iso files. To be able to do them in batch is a must. When I import a batch by selecting a folder, the process completes the first one and then produces errors for all the rest.
Again, any advice would be much appreciated.




Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):




HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

1.1.2


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Windows 10 64bit

Re: AC3 Codec & Batch Processing

Post by rollin_eng » Sat Dec 08, 2018 4:20 pm

You want AC3 passthru for AC3 source.

You can’t batch process ISO files, you will have to script the CLI if you want to do that.

Auto Passthru can pass several input track types through (you set which get passed through via checkboxes in the "selection behavior" dialog) and you can set the desired fallback encoder. AC3 Passthru passes AC3 through and re-encodes other input types to AC3.

Re: AC3 Codec & Batch Processing

Thanks. One final question
When I open the iso file it initially shows 1 Audio track AC3 converting to AAc(avcode) but when I choose a preset such as Super High Quality it adds a second one . It seems same as first but AC3 passthru. The resulting file has 2 audio tracks. I don't understand why initially opening the file has one audio track but on selecting a preset 2 appear. Could you explain.

Thanks for all your help

ps I would have done screen shot but cant figure out how I would do it here!

Thought of one more thing. If I converted my existing mp4 files which has aac audio to mp4 with ac3 what would the quality of the audio and video be like. Would it be much more inferior than if i had converted it from the original dvd?

If you do it with handbrake, the video is going through an additional "generation" of compression. Each generation costs quality, unless it's loss-less, which is going to make the file VERY big.

Using ffmpeg, you could convert JUST the audio track, leaving the video untouched.

Is there any software with a gui interface which would just convert thr audio to ac3 5.1?

There is a GUI interface available for ffmpeg, in fact. I don't recall ever using it, though, because MOST things like this are rather simple to do via the command line.
