neat app...

Only, 2 thingies i realy like to see improved..

when using DXVA acceleration in Vidcoder i get an FPS boost of 2, 3 frames ^^.

When using dxva in handbrake , the app wont progress with the encode and stalls for some reason !!

Also, in vidcoder when an X amount of jobs are added to the queue list.
One can still change bitrate 1 time and apply it to all the jobs in the list whitout to have import all DVD/bluray structures and episode one by one again to aply the new bitrate !!

I hope i wos of any help to the coder of this very neat apps, and will read me ..

Hello,

I like the application allot, especially the new added denoiser (NLMeans).

Now, iam using handbrake mainly for converting old TV SERIES ripped from DVD to MKV and with succes..

now , bear with me for what i have to say about the audio !!

as i have mentioned before, i use handbrake to convert dvd to mkv and only to convert the video track not the audio ..

All audio has passthrough selected, so nothing is converted there or anything or is altered by handbrake.

Afterwards, i use the MKV file in multiavchd to make an bluray structured folder to burn on an BD25
All with great succes..

BUT NOW....

I noticed that the volume from the audio is lowered somehow when i play it in my stand alone !!!

NOW, the weird part is that when i create an mkv file through VIDCODER again using audio passthrough preset the volume from the audio is NORMAL and LOUD enough !!!!

Iam sure multiavchd isnt recoding the video stream nor the audio stream.. i have checked the logs and settings to come to this conclusion !!

So something must be happening to the audio stream during the video encode and/or remux process in handbrake and/or multiavchd !!!

cheers,

It doesn't remove your audio. You probably don't have the necessary codecs to play the video. Get Klite codec pack, it's the most frustration free solution for n00bs, despite what you may hear from people.
In future, direct your comments to the forum, you're more likely to get help there.

Help!
I have windows 7. I just downloaded handbrake 64bit, as instructed in this video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s10ARdfQUOY
I followed the instructions precisely but it ALWAYS removes the video and turns it to audio only.
It IS an .mp4 file but the video is just gone. WHAT DO I DO?

The new version 0.9.9 "gives us the option" to encode with x264 Presets + x264 tune + extra options that we add manualy (for instance ref=5:bframes=6:rc-lookahead=200...)
or by clicking on advanced and add your setting there.
All sounds fine but none of them work. Handbrake goes nuts and does the encode how he likes it ignoring all the extra settings I added.
The previous version was just fine, although encoding BD-s to 1080p with Handbrake will end up with more light no matter what settings you use. So not reccomended for those who want perfect encodes. Also if you select in Tools/Options...to add all audio tracks Handbrake will NEVER ADD THEM ALL! Annoying really.
I'm planning to use megui instead even if it's user-unfriendly (AVS script creator crap).

@ MindController

Try the latest nightly build:

http://handbrake.fr/nightly.php

If that doesn't help, then provide encoding logs to HandBrake support:

https://forum.handbrake.fr/viewforum.php?f=11

One from the old build, one from the new build. There could be a discrepancy somewhere in the settings.

I've not seen anyone else report this on the HandBrake forums since 0.9.9 was released.

This program worked so well for me, then I updated to the latest version (May 31st). I appreciated the new icons and slightly different interface. It was definitely a great way to modernize the program. The issue comes to me in the form of encoding. I attempted to convert a 4 gig mp4 file down to a smaller one as I always have. I click start, and the progress bar is going by soooo slowly. It gives me an estimated time of nearly 5 hours.

So I uninstall the program, re-install a previous version. I apply the same settings, go to convert the video and the estimated time is now at 45 minutes. Much better.

The new version is crap. Don't get it.

It's my favorite video encoder but in last version there is a bug:
When I encode a 1080p video with AR 2.35 or 2.40 , automatic cropping will always crop 20+20px as if movie had AR 1920/1040 instead of 1920/816 or 1920/800. Using user preset under "Picture settings" I selected None "Picture Size". Can someone confirm it's a bug? Thanks.

Fair enough friend :-)
Lanczos is probably the best resizer (considering how fast it is).
But I don't see your rating of 1/10 as fair?

PS if you want an encoder with all the bells and whistles, you can't beat Hybrid. The GUI is confusing at first though precisely because it has everything. Selur updates all the components including ffmpeg and x264 regularly as well so you don't have to. And I mean regularly.

blud2,,Handbrake may be open source but it was developed and used extensively by Apple users in its early days..You are right about ffmpeg and mkvmerge using header stripping in the TX264 encoder but you can also put the header back after the encode is finished in about 1 minutes time using the standalone version of mkvmerge..I said I Like using external calculators For ANY program I choose to encode with..Lanczos resizing produces a sharper end result and looks better all around to me then bicubic,thus Lanczos is my resizer of choice..A few years ago I might have cared about subtitles in dvds or even dvd encoding..These days I dont deal with resolutions smaller then 1024x576..And when you speed up the encoding process in Handbrake the end product just pales in comparrasin to the TX264 encoder and I have never had a problem with subtitles,audio or video in any of the mkv files that I use it for..Look,,It just seems that whenever a file wont play for me and I look at the media info of that broken video file,,that file 9 times out of 10 was encoded somewhere by Handbrake..And this is why I dont like Handbrake..

I hate Apple as much as the next guy but the last commenter is just plain wrong on a few things:
1. Handbrake is not proprietary at all, it is free and open source (GNU GPL)
2. It does not use header stripping afaik
3. It does not use ffmpeg or mkvmerge (which btw enables header stripping by default)
4. TX264 is terrible at encoding subtitles and a nightmare with DVDs. You have to dump and merge files for it to work properly. Even then it sometimes fails.
5. TX264 is NOT faster than Handbrake at all if you use the same settings. Both use implementations of x264 which would make near identical encode times. Not to mention, unless you use different filters, the quality should be the same as well
6. If you want an up to date binary, Handbrake has nightly builds which work perfectly well

The actual drawbacks of Handbrake are these:
1. There are no fancy filters, just the built in ones but these work fine in most cases. e.g. the resize filter seems to be bicubic by default and not changeable
2. The file size calculation is a bit off (but not much at all) as the last commenter noted
3. You don't have access to all of x264 settings but most of the important ones are available under the advanced tab. Most notably are the presets and the tune settings, which are not needed since they are just made up of tweaks you can mostly make in the advanced setting anyhow.

People who use this Apple based garbage encoder need to trash it,,there are much better encoders out there like TX264 and AvantiGUI..Both of these encoders are easier to set up and use then Handbrake.I have been encoding files since 1996 and I have tried many programs in all my xp and win7 computers..And honestly Hanbrake is extremely slow and produces files that are NOT playable in most hardware multimedia players..I cannot tolerate proprietary programs that want to give you a finished file to their liking and not yours..What takes Hanbrake 4 hours to encode takes TX264 encoder 1 hour to do and the file looks better and plays in everything!!!Handbrake is notorious for stripping headers..And I never use the built in calculators that are in these programs,there are better free standalone video/audio calculators right here in video help..Also I would NEVER use an encoder that dosent update regularly or one that I couldnt insert the newest ffmpeg or mkvmerge builds etc,etc,manually...

Handbrake needs a serious update from its author. We request you to do so. I tried this software and StaxRip as well but found this to be too simple and outputs acceptable quality. Please update with latest x264 and add some more profile and GUI design. Add some more funcionality options to configure if you wish to in x264. Thanks.

It's true that Handbrake doesn't offer fancy filters or do 10 bit encoding but it's great at what it does: make encoding from almost any source to devices extremely easy. Not many playback devices support hi-10p video anyway. And you can tweak h264 pretty well from the advanced options. No free tool is simpler and more foolproof for video conversion.

The truth is that HandBrake needs a major update otherwise is going down the hill as other tools offer more fancy options their filters has improve a lot plus 10-bit encoding>time to wake-up!

Handbrake haven't even detailed options for h.264 encoding... It is an ernomous deficiency for a transcoder.

I really wanted to like this program. It's simple to use, has a lot of nice features, etc.

Unfortunately, every attempt I made to generate a high quality encoding turned out unacceptable quality.

A 1080p to 720p project with a high profile and retaining grain showed weird crawling color splotches in areas. That was with a constant quality of 18.

I suspect the issue could be the resizer used by HandBrake, but you can't tune the resizer. I suppose I could have scrubbed the grain and gotten better results, but that wasn't my goal.

It's really simple. If you need a freeware that converts your blu-ray or dvd disk to a portable format or high compression full HD MKV with original audio, this tool will not fail you. Who cares if it is built on .NET, so are 1000's of other applications out there.

The only suggestion I have and that I have seen on another blu-ray converter is the ability to collect meta data to define the file title so that tools like media center master correctly identify the movie. This is candy and certainly not a must have.
