Blu-ray transcode to H.265 using Intel Quick Sync Video
I just started a process of transcoding about 100 video discs (with DTS-HD Master Audio on passthrough) from my collection of Blu-rays and want to store them for backup purposes solely.
Source video codec: Advanced Video Codec at profile High@L4.1.
Hardware being a new laptop with:
I do this with HandBrake software version 1.0.7 under Windows 10 Pro.
In short I have applied Constant quality with RF20 and Quality preset for the video.
Originals are all at fixed 7.5 GiB size (it is a series on a Blu-ray Double-layer, so on 1 disc there are 5 episodes).
The sizes of my encodes are usually around 3 GiB +/- 0.5 GiB.
That is about 40 % of the original size overall.
I own a license for PowerDVD 17 Ultra, it plays the video just fine, but it does play the video only, not playing the audio at all.
Only VLC Media Player plays both video and audio well.
Could anyone point me to the right direction as to if I am doing anything wrong?
Or are these effects of Intel Quick Sync Video normal?
