I did remeber to check to make sure my version of Handbrake was current before posting. They do seem fairly good at fixing bugs as I've noticed various issues disappear as updates were released. Interesting ideas. I'll try renaming on the next one that pops up but I'm guessing that won't solve some ...

Anybody with much experience Using Handbrake on a Mac?

For the past several months I have been using handbrake to convert video files to run on my iphone. I've used FFmpegX for years but Handbrake has more up to date presets and can still handle softsubs easily. The catch is, is that every now and then I run into an .avi file that freaks Handbrake out. ...

Curious about M Riders

Does anybody know if there are any groups planning to (or considering) sub the M Riders? I am aware that the show was targeted for kids, and appeared to be made on a budget of roughly twelve dollars per episode but I am still really hoping someone will take a shot at the show. I've always been a fan...

Dramafever ads broken in Safari

Somebody may have already pointed this out but the Dramafever ads are pretty badly broken when viewing either the new torrent page or any page on dramawiki. The Dramafever stuff will appear in a single narrow column that runs pretty long that either pushs all other content below it (at first I thoug...

The issue is not that you are using a Macbook.

Azureus is definately the client to use if you are using a Mac.

I installed ffmpegX onto another intel Mac (an iMac this time) an still did not have any problems. The only way I was able to induce an error was to not rename a .rmvb file as .rm before dropping it into ffmpegX, but the error log is entirely different in that case. Wish I had better advice.

Aaargh, I'm useless for getting info from log reports.

I've used the program about 20 times this ...

For audio I have the Xbox connected with optical cable to a Yamaha surround system. It is amazing the difference surround sound can make on a movie. Less relevent to most dramas, but some of the newer ones have had nice sound encoding.

It sounds like the best approuch for a pc to tv set up is to simply treat the tv as a second moniter and bypass Windows media center usage altogether.
