Question

Handbrake

by uffen90 / October 1, 2012 9:29 PM PDT

Hi there.
I'm having a problem with handbrake, when I try to convert an episode of a serie, it only converts 1 min. not all of the the episode?
It is only some of the episodes it does that to, not all of them?
Any body know what to do?

Thanks

Be sure to ask the supplier of the episode.

They usually can tell you how to convert it to play on the iPad or such.

You pay for such or the site supplies the content and knows how it's encoded. There are a lot of other video encoders, many thousand choices but the BRUTAL TRUTH remains. The industry didn't standardize and no one can be sure how your content was encoded unless the supplier tells you.

You can also research video encoding methods and find tools like Media Info to snoop into how some file is encoded but imagine the rest of the folk that think AVI or MKV determines "encoding." It does not and the users are lost.
