Description Holger Mainz 2024-02-18 12:32:30 CET
The Handbrake Version 1.6. has a bug. Subtitles sometimes appear on the double. An upgrade to 1.7. would lift the problem ( Handbrake staff )
Comment 1 Morgan Leijström 2024-02-18 19:55:25 CET
Thank you for the heads up Holger

Upstream is at 1.7.3

BTW I see it is available as flatpak, if any user need it urgently.

Assigning to you Chris as i see you packaged it last
Feel free to reassign to nobody if you do not take it :)

I see they for every release - even point releases say: "Please also make note of any custom presets you have created, as they may not be compatible with newer versions."  https://handbrake.fr/news.php

Anyway it is better to upgrade within a supported Mageia release, than between Mageia releasees, so user can downgrade easily IF they see this problem. 

@Holger, please test when there is a new version in testing

mga9, x64
Installed the update and used it to convert an mkv file to mp4.
Cut a section out of an mp4 file based on frames and played it back.
Repeated the operation for another file based on seconds.  Audio and video OK.

Good as far as I have taken it.

MGA9-64 Plasma

Updated over the old version, with no installation issues. Ran it my usual way, by using the "open with" option on a file (happened to be .mkv) in Dolphin. 

Checking, I found that the presets I created a year ago were still there, and apparently usable. I customized the settings for quality and resolution somewhat, as well as dropping the subtitle track, in an effort to reduce file size. Both source and result were encoded using the H.264 codec.

The resulting .mp4 had reduced the file size from 159.6 MiB to 109.0. Watching each in vlc, the reduction in quality was visible, but only because I was looking for it. 

(That may be just me. I'm fine with SD quality, as long as it isn't obviously blocky. Others aren't satisfied with anything less than HD, if that. It's a matter of opinion, so YMMV.)

Looks good here.

Should be in the tainted updates testing repo of your favorite mirror very soon, if not already.

MGA9-64 Plasma Wayland on HP-Pavillion
No installation issues.
Used handbrake to convert a 1.7Gb mpg file to mp4. No problems encountered and resulting mp4 file plays OK.

mga9-64 OK here
Plasma X11, intel i7-870, nvidia-newfeature

Opened program with file by in Dolphin right clicking an .mp4

Tested compressing of a couple mp4 videos.

Started in terminal ("ghb"), no output when starting nor running,
which i think is good.

$ ghb --help
shows help.
Comment 10 Holger Mainz 2024-02-27 10:29:51 CET
OK, thank you. I have it. But i want to test the program with the file, where the subtitles did not fit. Unfortunately, i have to download it again , first ;-( ;-)

What happened with this?, we are just waiting your confirmation
Comment 13 Holger Mainz 2024-03-05 00:55:25 CET
I had deleted the file.

From my point of view, i can give it a pass. The duplicated subtitle problem is solved with the update.
