Try as I may, I simply am not finding any instance where the parameters specified in “handbrake-audio=” are being referenced during the encoding process. For example, I am attempting to encode a large number of .MKV files to a MP4 container and would like to copy the single AAC 2-channel audio tracks without re-encoding. In every instance, regardless of my “handbrake-audio=” parameters, the conversion jobs reference the audioac3 parameters in any and all of the profiles I have created and utilized. Here are a couple example syntaxes I have used to no avail:
handbrake-audio=-E copy -R auto -B 0 -D 0 --audio-copy-mask aac,mp3 --audio-fallback faac (or fdk_aac)
handbrake-audio=-a 1 -E copy -R auto -B 0 -D 0
handbrake-audio=-E copy -R auto -B 0 -D 0 -a 1
handbrake-audio=-a 1 -E copy:aac -R auto -B 0 -D 0
handbrake-audio=-E copy:aac -R auto -B 0 -D 0 -a 1
I’m at a loss at this point and would really like to avoid having to re-encode the aac audio stream. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Let me add that if I comment out the “handbrake-audioac3=” line, the conversion utilizes the “handbrake-audio=” parameters flawlessly. Not working solution however as that profile is processing both single audio 2-channel videos as well as multiple audio channel videos with varying audio codecs (I love handbrake’s audio copy masks and fallback feature). As a point of reference here is a copy of one of my profiles:
The source audio is AAC 2 channel. Here is the mediainfo output on a video that is consistant with the others that are not referencing handbrake-audio= perameters. All of these videos have a single AAC 2.0 audio stream:
So here’s the issue, you’re using a custom profile but it isn’t being registered with MCEBuddy
–> Profile being used : TV MP4 Video - High Quality (VBR 3K).
Profile entries ->
Profiles.conf is returning blank when MCEBuddy tries to read it. There could 2 reasons for this:
Profile doesn’t exist (check the name, it has to be an exact match
Simplify the name, remove special characters, dots etc from the profile name, save profiles.conf, REOPEN the conversion task settings, select the “new” corrected name profile again and click Ok and Ok again.
