A web-based tool I created to let you compare the results of a video encoded at various bits in Handbrake!
Image and video samples of a source encoded via x264, x265, VP8, and VP9.
Compiling HandBrake on ARM. No, not that thing attached to your hand, silly! Not unless your arm runs Ubuntu (and if it does, you might be a Borg in which case you may as well assimilate this information anyway).
Issues I’ve run into a few times when trying to compile HB on fresh Ubuntu installs, and the “solutions” that I’ve come up with.
A few 8/10/12-bit libraries (and in some cases, binaries) that I put together for encoding in HandBrake.
When using RF (Constant Quality), setting slower speeds in Handbrake results in smaller files. Except when it doesn’t. Details on the confusing mess that ensues is in here.
De-noising in Handbrake has historically been one of the tricker aspects to delve into. Here I delve away, giving examples of what different settings mean and do.
The concept of “RF” values can be tricky for a newcomer to wrap their head around. I break it down here with screenshots at various settings, a video, and a full explanation.
Aimed at v0.9.9 but helpful for all versions of Handbrake, this guide is aimed at those who want to understand what each of the options actually do and when you might want to use them.
I go over each of the Advanced Settings in Handbrake 0.9.6 (similar to other versions) in great detail.
A detailed look at custom denoising in Handbrake. Note that I have since replaced this with a newer/better version, and have provided a link to it.
A somewhat brief list of some quick-and-dirty “best” advanced settings for Handbrake, based on v0.9.3.
