Convert .mov to .mkv?
Time

IIRC the default setting on Handbrake does result in a fair bit of loss to the quality (it’s been a while since I’ve used it, and there’s likely been a few changes).

This article explains how to change the video quality so you won’t lose much - or any - quality in the video settings:-

https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.0.0/workflow/adjust-quality.html

(there may also be some decent youtube videos out there which may have more helpful info too)
 

I think I used to use a video setting on the RF scale of 12-14, though would have a play around with them to find the which setting gave the best / most acceptable results.

Good luck with it man.

Last web series/tv show seen
Time

Just finished the 2nd season of Peaky Blinders - a UK crime drama set in 1920s Birmingham, England in the aftermath of World War I. The series follows the exploits of the Shelby crime family, a gang who sew razor blades in the peaks of their caps (hence the title), under the guide of fierce boss Tommy Shelby.

Pretty decent tv with some welcome twists and surprises along the way - if you can get past the accents 😉

Episode IX - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

nl0428 said:

Does anyone thinks that Episode IX could bring the fan base back together, or will it still just make many mad? It makes me annoyed how critical and harsh people can be.

I hope Episode IX does bring the fan-base back together… though with the amount of monetised clickbait, negativity and toxicity written about Star Wars of late - some of it intentionally focusing on creating and continuing a polarision within the fan-base (insert keywords into videos and articles such as RJ, KK, Disney, Mary Sue, feminism, agendas, SJWs etc do/does this - and then rinse and repeat; with little to no facts, balance or responsibility required)… I somehow doubt it.

That’ll all be before any balanced or constructive criticism for any aspects some fans may not like or enjoy with Episode IX.

Though man, I hope to be wrong on that.

^ there is the Jedi: Fallen Order game that’s scheduled for release ‘this fall’ (if not cancelled too) - though you’re right, it hasn’t been enough for many of us fans/gamers. Just the 4 more years of this deal with EA… 😉

Despecialized edition blu ray PlayStation 3 playback problems.
Time

Hi and welcome BlueManta44,

You purchased the Depsecialized Editions? - I hope you didn’t pay more than for the cost of blank discs and p&p…

Though if you did… this video from Harmy himself may be worth a watch - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrwKZHv4OS0 (and reading the About and Help sections linked at the top of the site may help you get a feel for the place) 😃
 

Re your issues with the PS3 not playing the Despecialized discs - have you tried playing the discs in another PS3 (friend, family, neighbour’s etc) to see if they play in there? Does your Despecialized discs work in other bly ray players?

It does sound like there may be an issue with the discs themselves.

Would anyone be able to send me a link to JasoN’s prequel edits? I’d really like to see them all as they seem like they’d be fun

I’m looking for it too …

FanEdit•info may well have it - as well as a few other quality Edits by JasonN
 

indeed, but it’s an old dlc (2014) that doesn’t work 😕

Have you tried reporting the issue to FanEdit•info - they may be able to fix any issues or re-upload?

Fanedit Request Thread
Time

IlFanEditore said:

Excuse me guys, what do you think is the best ROTJ edit available?

There are a few ‘Best Edits’ / ‘Recommend me an Edit’ type threads in the ‘Best Of’ section of the An Index Thread for Star Wars Fan Edits and Other Projects…

(personally I like darthrush’s ‘Return of the Jedi - Remastered’, and am looking forward to adywan’s ‘ROTJ Revisited’, and snooker’s ‘Revenge of the Jedi’ - when they are finished, of course)

Please take your time to look around and get a feel for the place - read through the threads that have piqued your interest - and you’ll soon pick the information that you’re looking for.

The About and Help sections located at the top of the site may also be on interest and assistance.

The 501st | Our Duty’…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bwx0ODb0pKE (by Heroes Fan Productions - who do a fair few quality videos)

‘This one is the longest I’ve ever done. The story of the 501st is a collective narrative of many different characters (mostly Clone troopers) who got the worst of the war. I wanted to explore the perspective of these soldiers and get a feel of how the war ACTUALLY was in Star Wars (the clone wars specifically). It was truly a tragedy just like many other characters in this universe. I really did enjoy making this one and I hope you will all enjoy it!’

He has done a few updates to it since (which you find in the reddit thread; mainly smoothing over the movements and adding detail) - the latest is this one:-

Just a little excerpt… ‘The impacts that the scientists are worried about will hit not just those living in the mountains, but also the 1.65 billion people living in the river valleys below - all are vulnerable to flooding and the destruction of crops.’
