View Full Version : Handbrake CLI - --start-at and --stop-at

Dec 9, 2011, 04:37 AM

I cannot figure out how to use these parameters properly. Whatever values I put in there seem to be ignored and handbrake tries to encode the entire clip.

Any ideas on how I should be using these two and what the value format is?

./HandBrakeCLI -i ~/Desktop/Test/work3 -o "stuff.m4v" --stop-at=10 --preset="High Profile"

The correct format is:-

For time in seconds ie start at 150 seconds and end at 300 seconds:-
--start-at duration:150 --stop-at duration:300

Or for frames ie start at frame 2000 and end at frame 5000:-
--start-at frame:2000 --stop-at frame:5000
