iPad presets

Posted: December 2, 2010 in HandBrake

I have had a few comments and emails asking about ipad presets.

The handBrake devs have releases an iPad preset but currently only for the nightly version of HB.  If you are running the latest nightly build then open the HB batch Encoder and copy this into the query box overwriting anything thats in there:

-f mp4 -4  -w 1024 –loose-anamorphic  -e x264 -q 20 -r 29.97 –pfr  -a 1 -E faac -6 dpl2 -R Auto -B 160 -D 0.0 -m -v 1

But, if you are using my full installer or just the latest released version of HB , it likely will not work. I will add official support for this preset when HB do a full release.

personally I use the Universal preset as it is – that way i get an encode suitable for my iPad, iPhone and AppleTv in one encode – works for me anyway!

Edit: check these out for some tested presets that work well : http://www.wingenter.de/archives/62

    It’s linked in my post but unfortunately it is in German language…
