I'll go slow, I have bought iTunes movies with great sound at halfway but this converted DVD doesn't so I want to make it like the iTunes version. not changing volumes between movies. I have to turn the volume all the way up for DVD movie but when I go to the iTunes movie I'll become deaf. Do you understand?

I think that is being a bit picky. What not just buy the iTunes movie to get it the EXACT way you want it?

For the volume gain, try +4 dB. I think you'll find it works about right. Experiment with it. Try encoding just one chapter and set the gain to different levels until you find one that works for you.

A pretty decent explanation of dB is here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decibel

This thread is a first world problem. I'm not sure how turning the volume up from halfway to a point you prefer will make you deaf and it's probably better that you don't attempt to explain that curiosity.

I've always preferred ripping from my own DVDs/BDs and HB does an stunning job of transcoding if that is what the ultimate goal. The quality is better and more control. But for a user that really wants exactly what iTunes does and not what the DVD has I would suggest purchasing everything from iTunes.

You know what I mean but you want to look cute for the rest of the Macrumors usernames on this thread.

Intersting comment and it must be true if you beleive it so. But the fact remains, volume controls are there for the user to adjust to their preference. If you beleive that adjusting to your preference will make you deaf then obviously I want to look cute. Brother, I couldn't possibly begin to understand what you mean.

Farcical thread of impatience on your part and refusal to listen to suggestions. Seriously, 6 threads started in 6 different forums on your part because you wanted people to tell you exactly how to do something rather than taking minimal time on your part to learn and understand. Sigh.

I think everyone trying to help here, should consider whether they are being "played" and he is just perpetuating this thread for the sake of doing so.

Well, its hidden in the audio panel right next to where you used DRC as you said just to the left. Its under a column dubiously labeled Gain.

If you have a new enough version of Handbrake, it's under the "advanced audio options" on the Audio tab when specifying an audio track. You should see a "gain" option. If you don't see it, get a newer version of HB.

Should I have ''Web Optimized'' enabled? I will be streaming the movie from my computer from iTunes using Home Sharing, and I will be streaming movies from iTunes using Splashtop.

Web optimized interleaves the audio and video samples, and puts the "MooV" atom at the begining of the file, restoring the Quicktime "fast-start" (also known as "pseudo-streaming") ability of the file.

It may start streaming faster but does come at a transcoding time penalty as this process happens after the transcode since the file is rewritten (though this is *much* faster than the original transcode) it typically adds about 3 minutes to the transcode time for a dvd source, though ymmv.

Frankly I notice little difference on my setup in terms of streaming ( itunes to atv).

And is their any other software that puts cast and directors in? that is not Metax? I dont have any many to pay for it. IDC if i have to put the information in my self. I just need a software that will let me write it in.

Subler will do your metadata, now exactly as it is in iTunes Store. If movie not in iTunes, you can search themoviedb.org.
PS you can set HB to open movie automatically in Subler (or any other program) after transcoding.
