Video Encoding Issues with HandBrake and VirtualDub

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, I've ripped a couple Blu-Rays because I'm starting to make digital backups of my collection. Problem is with a certain set, the videos rip with high amounts of noise. Naturally, I'm looking to reduce that noise since it kinda kills the quality.

I've tried two different programs, and I'm having issues with both. First, the tried and true HandBrake. Usually I don't have an issue with HandBrake but in this case I'm puzzled. When I toss the video into HandBrake with noise reduction set to medium, the video explodes to 25GB (normally ~4GB for one episode). It also has issues playing in both VLC and MPC - the video will pause for 2-5 seconds at a time constantly while the audio keeps playing. The noise reduction applies perfectly though.

The other program is AVISynth with VirtualDub. I've used the combination in a limited capacity before, but not a whole lot. VirtualDub throws an error whenever I try to open the video from the .avs script - however it doesn't seem to be the video that's the issue. Whether I use "DirectShowSource" or "FFVideoSource" VirtualDub gives an error of " Not Found" in reference to the aforementioned directives. So the video never opens and the filters aren't being applied. Yes, I have the DirectShow and FFV plugins installed.


So, if anyone can give any suggestions for either HandBrake or VirtualDub, it'd be most appreciated.

Also, not opposed to a Linux solutions either if it'd be a simple change of programs.

Have you tried ripping the DVD in it's original format, then encoding off of that?

MakeMKV will rip its original format:

AnyDVD HD too:

Then try decreasing the resolution in Handbrake.
Or, Ripbot 264
