New to MCEbuddy, but I’ve been using Plex+Handbrake for some time.
I’ve been trying to find optimal transcode settings on MCEbuddy. I would take a pre-recorded TS file run a MCEbuddy preset and presumed similar Handbrake preset. However the MCEbuddy file was always significantly larger, even if the Handbrake file had 2 audio tracks (AC3+AAC). I did figure out if was using FFMPEG (looking closer at the logs, now I think I’m wrong). I’m not using hardware encoding, though that was checked. I edited the profiles.conf to add a test that removed all mentioned that FFMPEG, and that did work, though I still don’t have the same results as if I’m running a file through Handbrake.
My question is, how do I get MCEbuddy to use the presets from Handbrake, or at least get similar results?
Ultimately, I’d like to be using H265 with AC3 audio, and most of my clients are Apple devices.
