Amazing! I love open source projects. This worked for converting 4K .mkv files into .mp4 and .m4v files while keeping the audio intact. MYypartner on my film project was using iMovie and was unable to use .mkv. The converted .mp4 and .m4v files worked!

I'm so thankful for this, it took a lot of searching to find a free program that could do this for me.

Worked perfectly, compressed my video files to mp4.
Thank you!!!!

I still use the older stable version in XP. I had a go with the newer 10 branch in Win7/10 and hated it, plus it was a bit buggy and the denoise settings bonkers. My only real moan is I wish any version of Handbrake would have solved that licensing issue(they did briefly but ffmeg encoder was removed!!) and put a better aac encoder in e.g Nero 1.5.4, than Faac 1.28? which at medium high bitrates 112/128kbps is acceptable, but at lower bitrates gives truly awful audio quality.

Iam using different software for editing and encoding to mkv. I actually hate default presets in Handbrake like peak framerate etc. But it become invaluable when encoding MKV files, that are created by merging two files together in mkvtoolnix. Only GUI that is able to convert them propertly is Handbrake. Nor Vidcoder, which is based on handbrake nor avidemux and others that I tested didnt work properly. It is invaluable, when you capture TV something, GOP starts in commercial and finished when film already started. In avidemux I reencoding start of movie (x264) interlaced tff as rest of TV something is. Then I merge it in mkvtoolnix. Everything is fine. But problem begins when you try to reencode it to different format, like h265 or just recommpress it with different settings in h264) but Handbrake handles it perfectly (dont know about ffmpeg iam not familiar with command line but I believe ffmpeg will do it as well properly). So it is for me invaluable software for this one special reason.
*Other software has problem with 1st part of video that was merged in mkvtoolnix to one video track and one audio track (But audio seems not to be affected).
Sorry my english is bad, and I know it.
