Portable HandBrake 0.10.5

handbrake-portable
HandBrake is a multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder. Supported sources: Any DVD-like source: VIDEO_TS folder, DVD image or real DVD, and some .VOB and .TS files, Blu-ray source, Most any multimedia file it can get libavformat to read and libavcodec to decode. Outputs: File format: MP4, MKV, Video: MPEG-4, H.264, or Theora (1 or 2 passes or constant quantizer/rate encoding), Audio: AAC, MP3, Vorbis or AC-3 pass-through (supports encoding of several audio tracks), Switchable or burned in subtitles and much more!

Milestone HandBrake 0.10

General

Core

  • Intel QuickSync Video Encode / Decode support.
  • Windows only currently. We hope to bring this to Linux in the future but not for 0.10.
  • Hardware Decode support via DXVA (Experimental – Windows Only)
  • Decoding of some H.264, VC1 and WMV content via the GPU.
  • Can provide a small improvement on slower hardware. Not suitable for fast CPU’s
  • Choice of Scalers
  • Lanczos
  • This is currently Handbrake’s default scaler and will remain so.
  • Bicubic (OpenCL) (Experimental)
  • Available on the Command Line (All Platforms) and Windows GUI. (Mac / Linux GUI’s will come in a later release)
  • Currently only available in OpenCL form so requires a AMD or Intel GPU supporting OpenCL 1.1 or later. Nvidia GPU’s are not currently supported.
  • When downscaling, up to 5% performance improvement can be achieved. No benefit when not downscaling.
  • Small loss in quality over the Lanczos scaler.
  • Denoise
  • hqdn3d filter now accepts individual settings for both chroma channels (Cr, Cb)
  • New NlMeans? denoiser. This is very slow, but results are significantly better than hqdn3d.
  • Presets
  • Added Windows Phone 8 Preset
  • Updated Libraries
  • x264 r2479-dd79a61
  • Libav v10.1
  • libbluray 0.5.0
  • Libavformat is now used for muxing instead of mp4v2 and libmkv
  • “Large File Size” checkbox has now bee removed for mp4, as the new muxer will transition to 64bit files automatically.
  • mpeg2dec has also been replaced in favour of using libav
  • The LibAV AAC encoder is now the default as FAAC has been removed.
  • This encoder is adequate for most, but until it improves a bit further, we have enabled support for the FDK-AAC encoder also.
  • This FDK option is a temporary measure until the LibAV encoder improves.
  • Note that FDK-AAC is much slower and will likely bottleneck the encode process, but will produce better quality audio.
  • H.265 encoder
  • Using x265 v1.4
  • This encoder is still early in it’s development, so is missing many H.265 features and optimisations.
  • Added VP8 Encoder (using libvpx)
  • Available in MKV files only.
  • Removed mcdeint deinterlace and decomb modes. This relied on the snow encoder in libav which has been was removed by upstream.
  • Bug fixes and Misc Improvements
Release Highlights
  • Removal of FDK AAC from our binary releases. –enable-fdk is required for “non-free” builds if compiling from source.
  • Updated x265 to 1.9 which brings bug fixes and performance improvements.
  • Few minor bug fixes since the 0.10.3 release. This includes improvements in large AVI file handling.
