Just because someone hasn't done the work for you and made a preset for the 5 doesn't make the program any less capable of doing it.Handbrake might be a good choice;No support for iphone 5 yet it looks like,There isn't an iphone 5 preset yet, but Handbrake are pretty good at getting these out quickly.
Try it using the high profile setting. does it close for all videos or just the one you put through handbrake. will itunes on your computer play the handbrake fileJust downloaded Handbrake and tried converting a video file with the "iPhone 5" present selected. it loaded onto itunes fine, and the sync to the phone was quick too.
but when i open the "video" app on my phone and select the video, it opens and then quickly closes... confused?
How do you mean it doesn't have much to offer? You can adjust pretty much any aspect of the encoding. It has more option than any other program I have run across. The downside is if you want to do anything other than the pre-sets you have to know what you doing. If any you could say it offers to much, not to little.Well to be honest I don't like using handbrake. I mean it is great because it is universal (Mac & PC) but it doesn't have much to offer. Also, when I was setting
it up and decided to stop the installation after watching a review of it, it froze my computer and restarted "Windows Explorer". Which was annoying... -.-
Well so instead I use Any Video Converter which is epic. It looks like a cheapy PC program but is really useful. It converts any video format to any other (iPhone/iPod etc.)
Just do burned in subs, then. Honestly, everything that has ever come out of Handbrake for me has been completely smooth and I would never expect such quality from something free. Not sure why so many people here have a problem with it.Yes, It can't convert any video format to any other, like my android phone, Also,Handbrake plus Subler has some problem when playing (not smooth if I turn on the subtitle).
It will do mp4 for Apple and MKV for everything else. If was written for mac folks so obviously that it was it's centered around. If for whatever reason you need AVI's or something else then it's not the best option but it's certainly not a knock against HB. It uses the two most popular formats out there.Yes, It can't convert any video format to any other, like my android phone, Also,Handbrake plus Subler has some problem when playing (not smooth if I turn on the subtitle).
