Chapter Markers


HandBrake can copy Chatper Markers from your source to the MP4 or MKV output file.

In HandBrake, if you click on the ‘Chapters’ tab, you’ll see a list of detected chapters. HandBrake will automatically generated chapter names in the following format: “Chatper n” where n is the chapter number.

Renaming Chapters.

If you wish, you can re-name these by simply simply altering the names shown in the chapters tab.

You can also import or export the set of chapter markers. HandBrake supports importing of CSV (Command seperated Values) files.

Click the Import button to choose a CSV file. The file must be in the following format:

1,Chapter Name
2,Chapter 2 Name
3,Chapter 3 Name

Finally, you can export the current chapter list to CSV format by clicking the ‘export’ button.

Sources without chapters

Unfortunatly, HandBrake can not currently add chapter markers if they did not already exist in the source.
