HandBrake 0.10.0 / 6601 Nightly
A free and easy to use application designed to help you quickly convert your DVD and CD media content into MP4 or MKV video files
HandBrake is able to process unencrypted DVDs or CDs and almost any media file that is supported by libavformat and libavcodec. It is recommended to copy the CD or DVD content to the disk before conversion.
HandBrake comes with batch scanning support: simply direct it to a certain folder and it will automatically scan and add all the files that can be converted. The “Title” drop down menu enables you to select which file you want to process, while in the “Source” toolbar you can choose to extract only a certain part of a CD or DVD.
The Output area covers most of HandBrake’s main window: here you can specify the output file format and customize the encoding. HandBrake enables you to use different video codecs: H.264, MPEG-4 and MPEG-2 for MP4 files and H.264, MPEG-4, MPEG-2 and VP3 for MKV videos.
HandBrake is also able to use different audio encoders: AAC, HE-AAC, MP3, Vorbis, AC3, Flac and more. Furthermore, HandBrake can encode subtitles that are embedded in the media or come as different files.
When converting files to MP4, HandBrake offers you the possibility to enable the 64bit support, to optimize the output file for web or make it compatible with legacy iPods (5th generation classic style).
HandBrake includes a collection of conversion presets organized by category: Regular (normal or high profile) and Devices. The latter category will prove to be very useful if you need to create files compatible with different devices, such as iPods, Apple TVs, Android tablets and more. Of course, you can easily create and save your own presents.
HandBrake will prove to be extremely useful whenever you need to play media files on MP4 and MKV compatible devices.
