Requires Net Framework 4.0 which is totally useless to me. What for? This adds 600MB to my system volume (this isn't a disk space issue; it's a backup speed and common sense issue). This is the reason I ditched MediaPortal for XBMC.

And then it doesn't support Nero AAC. Yes, it's a GPL program and they can't include Nero AAC, but they could allow the user to download it and add it manually.

So, not only this program requires a huge amount of system space but it is also not good enough. Sorry no. MediaCoder, with all its advertising silliness and GPL breaking is a better option.

By far the best encoding app available. I have used it for DVD, Blu-ray, and re-encodes of mkvs with nearly flawless results. I would like to see it have the capability of either directly passing pgs subtitles through or converting them to vobsub cause that is really the only thing missing. But, there are ways around that.... Woulda given it a 10 if not for that.

1 - Not capable of just accepting audio and video without problems. (Takes forever to open and can't encode). Must be in the form of an mkv already.
2- Have to keep an eye on all settings because when switching between tabs, sometimes the settings revert back to default.
3- After hours of encoding, the audio is garbled at the beginning and out of sync
4 - Dev did away with target size in later versions, refuses to bring it back.

Haven't had issues with this one so far. Comes with presets and allows to create own. Also lets you easily alter encoding settings, but no overload. BUT: Will this thingy ever have PGS (BD subtitles) support?

No 3rd party?

HandBrake uses a lot of (L)GPL libraries from the Linux world:

CoreAudio AAC/HE-AAC (OS X Only), MP3, Flac, or Vorbis. AC-3, DTS, DTS-HD, AAC and MP3 pass-thru

Vobsub and Closed Captions

Most common multimedia files that libavformat and libavcodec support.

To whoever objected to the "no real alternatives" ... if, like me, you won't use programs anymore that rely on 3rd party codecs that bugger up your registry, what other alternative is there for windows? I won't have one program repointing all the media codecs away from directx. Hacker crap.

I rate this 10 for functionality despite the fact that it doesn't have all the h.264 bells and whistles built into the menu options (without manually adding strings) because it has the best compromise between ease of use and power of anything I've seen. You don't have to be a hard core video geek, at least at first.

The only thing is that some things are somewhat buried in menus that should be out front imo. Like the shut down after encoding option. To me that's so important in a program like this I assumed at first it wasn't there because it's in the options submenu.

This tools works great, But constantly loosing features.

AVI and XVID support is gone sometime back.
Now I can not select target size.

What Next???

May be it is targeting some specific applications.

Unfortunately there is no proper alternative.

I like the new version, even though the first build I installed didn't work properly. The newer one is fine, so far.

I have absolutely no objection to needing a higher version of the .net framework, unlike the previous commenter. Everyone wanting to run media software on windows should have all the .nets, plus visual c++.

Besides, if the size of the .net upgrade is a problem you don't have enough room to deal with video.

The audio gain control is very nice. However, I missed target file size at first. It's not hard to adapt though.

My only problem is that, unlike vidcoder (which uses the older handbrake engine, at least for now). there's still no option to shout the machine down after encoding is done. At least that I can see.

I'm somewhat impressed with the new approach for the program.
I can get by the loss of the *target size* for the output size of any video file that I am working with,... using the *constant quality* slider takes a little getting used to, one has to become familiar with the amount of compression the slider position structures to the video to,but one can still narrow down the selected size that one wishes the output video file size to be.
...(for example....squeezing a 30gig ts video from a Bluray disc down to a particular x264 size within an mkv container)
What I am really NOT impressed with is the building of the new version on the netframework 4 platform. Why couldn't the programmer build it on the framework 3.5 platform that is already part of Win7? Even on Win7, framework 4 is not there and before Handbrake 096 will install it will by default download & install framework 4. Now, that doesn't bother me except for the fact to get the new framework installed uses up almost 600mb of op/sys space!
The dl that goes into windows/framework/.V4 is almost 220mb large and that is before the program dll's install. To me personally, I don't need my op/sys to increase it's size to something that much just to accommodate this little program. I'll stay with 095, it needs no extra install to get it running, and that is fine with me.

I tried new version of this tool (0.9.5) on Win XP and am surprised to see the "High Profile Film setup" missing. Otherwise, it is an awesome tool for converting to MKV.

Compression level? As far as I'm aware, one can specify a target size, an average bitrate, or a Constant quality setting. I'm not sure how those aspects could be overlooked.

Profile levels would be nice, but they're not to be mixed up with compression levels or settings.

Additionally, Handbrake does allow for the setting of bframes etc. Use the advanced tab on the main window where you can add x264 options.

Indeed, Handbrake lacks a few options for a decent x264 configuration, like compression level, maximum number of consecutive b-frames and probably a few more. Luckily, Handbrake enables the user to alter the command line and thus making use of missing options ('--level n' to specify compression level; '--bframes n' to to specify maximum number of b-frames at once).

Useful tool, works very well for what it is capable of doing.
I found that it does not seem to have the ability to allow the user to manually select the *profile* level ( example....3.1..4.1..5.1 etc, etc), while I was using the program it was locked onto 3.1, I wanted to use 4.1.
The biggest disappointment has to be the incredibly slow speed. I was re-encoding two relatively small 2.5 gig files that were each 1/2 of a 3 hour movie... a two part movie that I was joining together. I just had to alter the bitrate for both halves to match each other so they would join together in mkvmerge without any issue. Handbrake took more than 16 hours to re-encode EACH file. Terribly slow. It did the job, but, terribly slow.

WOW, this is an AWESOME tool.

I used it a while back when i recall the interface was different. I was not impressed then. Now however, I can see the magic of MP4 compression and its amazing hands-over-fists advantages from XVID. The only major downside to the codec is lack of current device support.

I have a ton of VHS. Handbrake not only detected the letterboxing and helped me remove it, with some de-interlacing the picture was amazing! And for a very efficient size!

This is a very worthwhile program, but you have to invest proper time in encoding. I always use 2-pass if available.

By gum, you're right. However I don't have any pressing reason to prefer mkv to mp4 so it doesn't affect me either way.

Apple Only format? if you mean the .m4v extension you can change that under the setting menu. It also puts out to .mkv. IF you mean codecs it does AVC which is the most widely used codec now and days. IF I could fault it for anything it would me the lack of filter options (i.e avisynth). for most people it does it all. And the linux version supports video preview when cutting/cropping in the program itself

Only gave this an 8 for functionality because it only outputs Apple format. This isn't a problem for me, though, and it definitely makes it easier to use.

How do you rate freeware as to value? It seems to me it'll either get 1 or 10.

This is just about the best freeware I've ever used. Despite what the last comment says it doesn't load the CPU any more than a number of other video rendering programs I've tried that do a crappy job.

And this does an excellent job. It's not buggy like Avidemux and it's much, much easier to use.

Plus, the documentation is excellent. Lots of paid programs don't have docs nearly that good.
