Applications :: Burnt Movie From CD Using Handbrake / VLC?
Dec 4, 2010
If I burnt a movie from a CD using that Handbrake app and VLC player or whatever (I have seen it on youtube) how much memory is each file of the movie once you've burnt it onto your mac? And can you burn blueray disks?
I downloaded handbrake to my hp computer running windows vista. I tried to "rip" a couple of movies. That worked...I think (m4v file format) But I cannot figure out how to get the movie in to iTunes, so that I can put the movies on my iPhone or iPad. I tried dragging the file in to the movie section, and also going to the menu and opening "add file" (or something like that). Nothing happens! When I ripped the movie, I selected "iPhone Ipod touch". I also should mention that when I double click on the file, and try to watch the movie on my computer I am unable to watch it on any program. For example it says that it is a file type that QuickTime does not recognize. I am completely new to this and simply don't know what im doing!
I am considering purchasing a Mac Pro, mainly for encoding movies via handbrake. Could someone tell me the time it takes for a base configuration Mac Pro single quad 2.8ghz to rip a DVD using handbrake to H.264 for appleTV?
I have seen lots of benchmarks and such, but can one of you lucky folks with a nice new machine rip a DVD with Handbrake and post the time and what movie you ripped, etc.. so i can compare it with my 2008MP 2.8 machine. Would also be cool if you then converted it to iPhone format and give the time for that as well.
This is my DXG-569V camcorder. It can capture 1280 x 720 video at 30 fps and shoot 5-megapixel. It can output in both 4:3 and 16:9 aspects. Video is recorded in H.264, .MOV format, .M2TS format. My Mac is iMac with Mac OS X version 10.4.11.
Here is my problem: When I convert my camcorder video in my Mac with Handbrake, I get the beach ball of death. Sometimes it won't get past the apple loading screen. When it does, it freezes on the desktop. Something wrong with my Mac or handbrake? How to detect? If it is Handbrake, please name something alternative I can use.
I am transferring my DVDs to my MBP using Handbrake. A lot of my DVDs have been recordings from my dvd player (like football matches etc ) so they have chapters which is a pain. Is there a way I can remove the chapters so I just have one movie/TV file only.
I'm dissapointed with the current Handbrake 0.9.2 version as it is about 3 times slower to encode at the same settings I used in 0.8.5b1. I was googling around for the download link, but all of them either point to the current 0.9.2 or give the 404 error.Foolish me to delete 0.8.5b1 dmg from my HD after I got 0.9.2...Or if somebody has the 0.8.5b1 version could he sent it to me? (PM)
I'm afraid I might have caused damage to my 4870 card while running handbrake for hours and hours.Could someone please check their GPU temp at idle, and then check it when running handbrake? The reason is because I want to see if handbrake puts any sort of load on the GPU at all. I can't do this because for some reason iStat Pro and Temperature Monitor cannot see the GPU temp nor GPU Fan Speed on the new MacPro's.
I'm hoping someone here might have encountered this issue before and have some kind of a workaround or solution...I've attempted to rip Rocky Balboa (a DVD I own) using Handbrake. It detects all of the titles (for some reason there are 99!) and automatically selects the right one, which shows as 1 hour 42 minutes. Also, all the chapters are selected (1 through 28) However, when I try to rip it, the resulting file is only about 3 minutes long - it's just the very beginning
However, recently I've been attempting to burn a dvd with some of the moviesthat I ripped using handbrake. This is where the problems began.
I tried burning a few episodes of a TV series to a DVD using iDvd program... it said that the dvd only had space for 3 300mb episodes. Somehow the project info window said that those three episodes where somewhere in the window of 4gb. And when I did try to burn the dvd, the encoding process took quite literally an eon. Solutions? Why is it that the iDvd program makes the files so huge? Why does the encoding take so long? I don't need anything fancy, I'm simply trying to get my .mp4 library into a form watchable from a dvd player.
I also had a similar problem with itunes, trying to import the movies to watch on my ipod video. It transferred into itunes just fine, but when I tried to load it onto the ipod, it said that it wasn't the right format. It then began to encode the movie, and I let it run all night, to come out the next morning and find it only 25% completed. Anyone know of a way to get large (2gb max) .mp4 files onto an ipod easily?
I'm getting an i7 quad-core soon and am planning on using HandBrake to copy across alot of my DVDs to store for viewing, I was wondering what the best settings are for this, I'll be backing up movies and alot of anime so I will need to have subtitles of course.
Today i received a free G4 imac computer and would like to put handbrake on it for converting small clips and music videos. Do you know where i can get version 9.2 which is the last version to support 10.4?
While using Handbrake on a friend's Early 2009 MBP (version 0.9.4), and setting the frame rate to NTSC (29.97 fps), with a good amount of video filters on, the transcode was only coming in at around 8 fps.
This also happens on my quad-core windows PC, though it comes in now at around 21 fps (w/ all the same settings).
Is there a way to have handbrake encode at a certain framerate, but then take longer in order to do so, instead of the norm, where it just encodes and the frame rate's lower?
What kind of fps should I expect for video conversion on a 2010 macbook pro with an i7. I'm converting a 640x480 res video at 70% constant quality to .mp4 and I'm getting around 50-55 fps. Is that alright?
I recently downloaded some tv shows from the internet. I converted one show (21 minutes) to watch later on my iphone. I first used the convert option on roxio toast and this procedure took almost 2 hours. Then out of curiosity i did the same thing on handbrake. Handbrake only took 15 minutes. Also the quality from the handbrake app looks a whole lot better. So i guess my question is why is handbrake so much better with a free app?
Not that I endorse the use of bittorrents, I was just wondering if there was anyway I could replicate their size using handbrake and get the same quality/size. Every time I try to rip something, I get either the same or lower video quality, yet the size is consistently higher. 30 minute tv shows ( approximately 21 minutes without commercials) are usually 175-185mb 1 hour tv shows (approximately 43 minutes without commericials) are usually 350mb any way to replicate this with Handbrake? Or do I need another ripping solution
handbrake rips them into great mkv files and that's cool i need that sometimes but as of now i just want the exact same files.. that way i can choose subtitles and chapter and have a menu. What would the settings be in order for me to get the exact thing without the protection?If this is not possible, what program would you suggest? I've read that mactheripper makes bad decryptions, i don't know if it's true but i don't want to spend hours and a few dvds to finding out..
On my first dvd rip i had a loud crack in the audio in the first 10 seconds of the movie. I stopped the movie there in case there were more in the movie. Is there something i did wrong? i ripped to a mp4 format with h.264 codec.I'm using handbrake 0.9.3 on an imac core due 2ghz 3gigs of ram. Leopard 10.5.8
I found this odd: I have the most recent versions of Handbrake and VLC, both in the 64 bit build. When I boot my MacBook Pro (June, 2009, and running SL 10.6.1 with 4 GB of RAM) in 32 bit mode, handbrake encodes video about 10% FASTER than when I boot in 64 bit mode! How can this be? I would have thought that running the Mac in 64 bit mode would run 64 bit applications faster.
I've got a mid 2009 MBP 2.66 and maye around 2 weeks ago I started ripping my DVDs with handbrake and I was getting like 100 fps... Now however I'm only getting 30 or less sometimes and it's only using 38% of the CPU whereas before it was using like 90-95%. I haven't changed anything.
I tried ripping my DVDs onto my macbook and I keep getting a msg saying that it needs 64-bit VLC to rip the dvd? So I go to the link and on the VLC media player download section it says: Note: VLC will not be available for 64-bits Intel-based Macs until further notice. You can safely use the 32-bits package instead.
