I ask to you to add option to change videoformat default (ntsc) into various format like pal, secam and selectable colormatrix, colour primaries, transfer characteristics and overscan.

Can be very usefull from advanced tab like menu, instead command line box.


Thanks a lot !


Last version 0.9.3 can't swith to encode multichannel ac3. It always show dolby prologic II

Multichannel AC3 seems to be working fine for me. I'm choosing 6 Channel Discrete for the mixdown and it appears to be sticking. Your source has to be 5.1 as well to get it...

My problem is not mixdown.

Vidcoder don't encode from ac3 multichannel into aac multichannel. Direct stream only works ok.


About color primaries and colormatrix in advanced tab?

Are you sure your player supports AAC multichannel? Seems to be working fine for me on a DTS source at least.

As for the color stuff, I really don't know what it's used for or how to make a sensible UI for it. I also don't know what settings would give you PAL or what SECAM is. If you pointed out what settings to use and what the UI should look like I might give it a shot.

My player ?


1) I open my video file (VOB with ac3) into vid coder

2) Select my audio stream AC3 multichannel. (not direct stream)


4) VIDCODER BUG ! switch into dolby surround


OK ?

I cannot reproduce your problem on 0.9.3.

Input: 1 English (AC3) (5.1ch)
Codec: AAC (faac)
Mixdown: 6 Channel Discrete

Output channel layout: 6 Channel Discrete

It works with both MP4 and MKV and it seems to play just fine.

according with last HandBrake svn 4167 build, changeset [4164], hot to use colormatrix, colorprim and transfer ? possible to build into advanced option like a sort menu ?

Pal DVD as source are recognized always ad bt601 videoformat NTSC

from mediainfo:

colour_primaries                 : BT.601-6 525, BT.1358 525, BT.1700 NTSC, SMPTE 170M
transfer_characteristics         : BT.709-5, BT.1361
matrix_coefficients              : BT.601-6 525, BT.1358 525, BT.1700 NTSC, SMPTE 170M

videoformat=PAL works fine.

1.0.0 is on 4167. You might be able to specify that on the advanced options string now. I don't know what the UI for this would look like.
