  1. Hi, I am wondering if somebody might be able to help me with a solution. Recently I stared to re-encode some video files and I am loosing the info about frame height/width in the property details of the movie. I used TEncoder and Handbrake and both have the same problem. Video code used: x265. Encoder: ffmpeg. Container: mp4. Thank you

    How do you check the width/height? Mediainfo?

  3. Thank you for your interest Baldrick. My info was incomplete, sorry.

    I can see the frame width/height for the movie in VLC and MediaInfo but in Windows (7), in File explorer, I don't have anymore the info in the columns for Frame Width and Frame Height. Also, when I open in Explorer the File properties and go to Details, I don't see that info there as well. I am missing this info only for the files that I re-encode. When I re-encode I also reduce the resolution and bit rate. Info abut Data rate and Total rate is kept. The original file contains the info.

    Normally the Height and width for a 'Standard' MP4 container are stored as the last 8 bytes of the atom TKHD. Use a hex editor such as HxD and search for TKHD. If you don't find it then X265 is storing different than x264 like an MPEG4-TS file. Windows probably can;t see it's normal location for information

  5. Hi Budman1. Thank you for your info. I tried to look at the file with a Hex editor but it's a bit of mumbo jumbo for me . However I tried to re-encode with TEncoder the same file with x264 and I can see the frame details in Explorer and File properties. I was wondering if there is a fix for Windows (some Registry tweak) that will allow for these details to be visible.

    According to a hit on the internet, x265 will be supported in Windows 10:

    Any computer can decode H.265 using software (in theory, at least). All that’s mandatory is software capable of handling H.265 and a file or stream encoded in it. The freeware VideoLAN player is currently your best bet, but support will be native to PCs with the release of Windows 10.

    That means the shell extension used by Explorer doesn't support the container or codec.

  8. Hmm, so probably no luck to solve this until I jump on W10. Thanks for all your help guys. I will give W10 a try in the future maybe. All the best.

  9. Or find, or wait until, someone comes out with a shell extension that understands h.264/hevc in MP4.
