When I use the preset Apple 1080p60 Surround, the level is set at 4.2.

 

I will try with this preset instead of mine...

I think I found the problem

I try "Apple 1080p60 Surround, the level is set at 4.2" and the file works (with stereo audio)

 

If I modify the audio transcoding for AAC 5.1, it does't work.

I don't know what has changed in the new version of Handbrake.

All my others files with AAC 5.1 works but not the new ones.

On a side note, I just figured out how to speed up h.265 encoding by a factor of 10: use Intel Quick Sync Video found in most current CPUs... it's a world of difference... add "modprobe i915" and "chmod -R 777 /dev/dri" to /boot/config/go at the end, then proceed to add the /dev/dri device to your handbrake docker container... lastly, chose the "H.265 (Intel QSV)" codec in the video section of handbrake... profit!! 😎

Yes, this is already documented :)  https://github.com/jlesage/docker-handbrake#unraid-1

Hello,

 

thank you very much for this container. I have it encoding my TV shows and movies to H.265 and it works like a charm.

 

I wondered: is it possible to tell HandBrake to ignore music files in the watch folder?

 

Thank you very much in advance and best regards,

Still unresolved after Plex Media Server (1.15.0.659) and Plex iOS (5.10) updates

 

All my newly converted files don't start on my iPad Mini 4.

The container expects only video files to be put in the watch folder.  However, I guess that if HandBrake tries to convert music files, it would simple fail?

I though it was working with stereo sound?

Yes, but it worked before with 5.1 sound, I don't want stereo sound.

You could use MediaInfo (you can find it in Community Apps) and compare the same video encoded with the different HandBrake versions.

Ran into the same problem.  Card0 was owned by root:video.  I chowned it to nobody:users (like the rest of /dev/dri) and the QSV encoding options appeared again.

 

Thanks for the tip.

 BTW, with the latest version, you should no longer have to change permission of /dev/dri.

Hey Djoss,

 

Since we are able to pass through NVIDIA GPUs to dockers now (using the nvidia unraid plugin) would that allow for NVENC support for handbrake as stated here?

 

https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/latest/technical/video-nvenc.html

 

 

To my knowledge, NVENC support is only for Windows, not the Linux version :(

(Linux may work but via the command line interface only)

Didn't even see that. 😥Maybe some day.

I saw that. I just enabled it for Plex. Unfortunately, as Djoss pointed out, Handbrake for linux doesn't support it. Hopefully it will in the future.

really hope they get the linux nvidia support up and running. I have this set up as per spaceinvaders video but the slow trans-coding is keeping me from actually using this. got a p4000 in the waiting for this when it does get supported. 

 

just out of curriosity, does anyone know if this is something that is being worked on?

I'm using a Dell server for Unraid. Am I correct that I could pop in an Nvidia video card, give it over to Handbrake and it will use that fr faster encoding?

 

If so, could Plex also use the card for better transcoding?

Currently, HandBrake only support Intel QSV for hardware-accelerated encoding.  No support for Nvidia yet.

I got Handbrake working fine. It's converting things I grab to h265 as it should. The file size difference between h264 has been pretty significant, sometimes half the size. 

 

Is there a way to get Handbrake to through my existing videos, recode them, delete the originals, and leave the new files in their place?

 

I can go in and manually do it, but that's a LOT of work an dI'm looking for a way to automate it.

Hello, a couple quick questions here:

  1. Is it possible to ignore already existing files in the /watch directory?
  2. Is it possible to grab a file, have it converted then put back in the same location as the source file? I received an error of "already exists" when trying this. My goal would be to just convert new files and just leave the existing ones.

Thanks.

Are you using default container settings?   How do you access the web ui (via which port)?
