My questions exactly. Any answers to those would be great. Thx forthe settingJumped on this thread, always looking for a good HB preset
Can you tell me if it plays on all Apple stuff?
What are the approx output file sizes for say 1hr of movie/TV show?
What are the settings? do you know if it also plays on PS3?
I would be using either my PS3 or by hooking up my MBP via HDMIjmitch, what do you mean by "on your HDTV"?
Is that using the TV itself? a cable from the iPhone? or other?
Nobody can realise advise you without knowing what format your HDTV (or whatever is feeding it) is using.
How do I load that preset into Handbrake?download this preset. its perfect, a guy here in MacRumors uploaded it kindly in other similar post
Download the file and unzip. Open Handbrake, go to Presets --> Import... and select the unzipped file. It will immediately appear in your Presets toggle window.How do I load that preset into Handbrake?
Once in iTunes, select the movie go to Advance>Create iPhone versionAlso, I have some 1080p video that was in mkv format. I converted it to mp4 using Handbrake, but when I tried to drag it from iTunes to my iPhone 4, it says it can't be played on the iPhone.
What do I need to do with the 1080p stuff I have to get it to play on the iPhone?
Um, why would you want to change the aspect ratio from the source ?What I've been looking for, and how I found this thread, is how to adjust the Aspect Ratio. Im new to Handbrake, so I would prefer a preset for now, but I don't like the super wide aspect ratio of the Apple Universal, and I think I tried Normal or something and got full screen
I'd like to keep it the same as the source, I thought it looks like it wasn't doing that. I transferred a movie to my iPad, I get 1 3/8" bars top and bottom. And on the TV, it just looks like the Aspect Ratio is off, it looks very wide. The res on my Mac Mini is set to 1344x756, that might be messing with it I guess. Here is a screenshot off my Mac:Um, why would you want to change the aspect ratio from the source ?

It shouldn't matter whether you encode straight from the DVD, from an iso, or DVD folder structure. It's all the same video going in, so it shouldn't make a difference. The videos shouldn't look horrible if you use the Apple Universal setting, I can't speak for other settings though.Do you rip straight from the DVD using these presets? Or from an iso image?
The reason I ask is that I've been ripping DVD's into iso files and then loading as a batch into handbrake to do overnight, but the quality on my apple tv looks horrible.
Would it be best for me to use the apple universal(or custom one above) to rip straight from the dvd and into itunes for apple tv? Or am I missing something?
Thanks in advance
I like to use the 'No DCT-Decimate' option on all my encodes. I find that this can stop Handbrake from destroying subtle filmgrain.I've read a few posts on Handbrake settings over the months I've been using it and more often than not, users will say the sweet spot is around 63% on the sliding scale. I have tried this on many videos and found it very inadequate unless the footage is fairly slow moving TV drama in well lit locations. Anything slightly grainy, dark, fast moving, looks pretty awful on the recommended settings. Has anyone got an alternative setting for 'more taxing' video?
