HandBrake 0.9.4 (and alternatives) discussion
Handbrake 0.9.3 just turned a year old and although it's an excellent .VOB to H.264 encoder it's feeling a little long in the tooth. It does support multiple audio tracks (AAC, AC3, directors comments) very well. (A typical 62% CBR AppleTV encoding with AAC & AC3 audio is about 1G per hour which is very good IMO)
Strangely all the retail encoder software support only a single audio track (and some make very large files even on medium quality 1.6G per hour AAC only audio)
Can anyone recommend any commercial transcoders with multiple audio track support and a modern H.264 / X.264 engine for the PC?
