Handbrake 0.9.2 Now with Dolby Digital 5.1 Encoding


Recommended Posts

I heart Handbrake.




Apple fans will be delighted over:


* Dolby Digital 5.1 (AC3) sound in MP4 files, for a true DVD experience on the AppleTV and in Perian.

* Multi-track audio support for Apple devices

* iPhone-compatible anamorphic video at its full size


Power users will find:


* Variable frame rate encoding with detelecine filtering

* More flexible, "loose" anamorphic video

* MP4 optimization for progressive web downloads

* Dynamic range compression for encoding from AC3 audio

* Robust program and transport stream support


Speed freaks will squee at:


* A fresher, faster version of x264

* Tuning of FIFO sizes by processor count


And everyone should enjoy the increased stability brought by:


* Better handling of audio discontinuities

* Better handling of DVD read errors

* Work-arounds for missing end-of-cell markers

* Recovery when streams have signal loss

* Better synced chapter markers

* Better handling of B-Frames

* No more cutting off the very ends of films

* No more lost subtitles or chapter markers

* No more crashes in 2-pass encoding

I've had my Apple TV hooked up to our upstairs television with just a DPLII receiver. Now with the HD rentals and this Handbrake update I'll be getting in the market for a new receiver. Just when I think I don't need any new components, something comes out I have to have. Damn technology.
