First time using Handbrake last night. I am very happy with the results. This thread is to make it easy for first timers like me to set-up Handbrake. Mac GUI settings - Apple ~ Universal ~ Format: MP4 File Codec: AVC/H.264 Video/AAC + AC3 Audio Insert iPod Atom: Unchecked Video - Encoder: x264 Constant Quality: 62% Picture Settings - Anamorphic: Loose Crop: Automatic VFR: Enabled Denoise: none Audio + Subtitles - Track 1 : AAC - DPL2 Track 2 : English AC3 5.1 Bitrate: 160kbps (only affects AAC) Sample Rate: 48khz Dynamic Range Compression: 0 Subtitles: Unchecked Chapters: Enabled 2ch/5.1ch Audio and video works well with my 50" Sony LCD TV via new Mac Mini. Playback is GREAT on my MacBook, MacBook Air 1.6ghz (1st gen). No skips or lag. Audio matches too. As you can see, iPhone looks GREAT too. Zoom mode is a bit cut off on the sides.
