I tried handbrake for the first time today, and encoded a dvd to h264.
It did a marvellous job and knocked the original file size from 5.3gb to about 700mb without any real loss of quality.

Handbreak is a wonderful thing. Use it more than any penguin should...legally speaking Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

An expert is a man who tells you a simple thing in a confused way in such a fashion as to make you think the confusion is your own fault.

I'm guessing quite a few people here use the program Handbrake to convert video's from their native format to the MPEG4 format Apple insist on using.

Handbrake is an excellent product, especially as it's free
And I'm getting superb image quality with a full length HD movie being shrunk to around 1GB using the current iPad setting of 1024 pixels wide.

My big problem though is it too dam quiet

Does anyone have any tricks or settings you can change on Handbrake to increase the sound level? When I watch other things on the iPad, the volume level can be around double what I'm getting with Handbrake converted films.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I checked it out and yes the volume was low - and many others have encountered this.
Use this with caution:
-D or --drc: if your audio isn't loud enough, you can try applying extra dynamic range compression when encoding from AC3 sources. This will boost up the volume of soft audio samples while leaving loud samples as is. This reduces the dynamic range, but should help for catching quiet audio in noisy listening environments. It takes a floating point number as its value, from 1.0 (off) to 4.0 (blow out your speakers from the background sound of elevator doors closing). 1.5 to 2.5 is a useful range.

You can access drc under the audio tab - on the right hand side you will see DRC - click the icon underneath it and you can change the DRC from off to a value using the slider

I haven't tested it, but would like to know how it works - and what value you ended up using

yes, Handbrake is usually the first choice for easy video processing.
but I have been using AppGeeker mov mp4 converter for the past 8 months when got a new MacBook Pro.
It is simple to use as well.
