Default Handbrake Settings

Hi, I am having trouble getting my movies to the full width of my Tab 10.1 screen. I have tried all of the presets in Handbrake, including Android Mid and High, plus all the others. All the movies created are the correct height but not the correct width. What exact settings do I need to use to fit to full screen?

It is not a setting as unless you change resolution of the movie it is still going to be wrong. If you DO change resolution aspect ratio will get screwed and it will look worse.

I do not convert movies at all, just watch them the way they are usind MX and Dice.

There is a way to get the correct aspect ratio. I'm afraid I can't remember what it is right now, but I know I did it with just Handbrake and the aspect ratio settings. Have a play around and you'll figure it out.

I'll try and remember and post back here asap.

I have been using the iPad Preset in Handbrake. I also convert them to mp4 and uncheck the large file size box. I haven't had a problem using that format at all.

Default Aspect ratio

The aspect ratio for the GT is 16:9. Movies are generally shot in either 16:9 (widescreen) or 4:3 (normal). It sounds to me as though your movie was shot with the 4:3 ratio and you want it to look like it's 16:9. To do this, you would either have to distort the movie by stretching it sideways, or trim off some of the height. The results might not be wonderful.

The best way to get a movie to fill the screen in both directions is to shoot it in widescreen, 16:9, format.

Maybe a bit late for this one, but here is a site I used for guidance.

How to encode movies to play on your Galaxy Tab 10.1 | How To - CNET

And here is another where you can download a settings profile and import into Handbrake.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Tips and Tricks: How to Encode Video

The only difference in the settings, I change the resolution to 720 after I encode movies from Blu-ray. 720 still produces an outstanding picture and keeps the file sizes to a reasonable size, typically 2.5-3.5gig each. Standard DVDs are encoded on the disc at 480p, so probably better to simply leave them in that resolution. I've only been encoded my Blu-ray at this point, so I haven't experimented with standard DVDs yet.
