I've used Handbrake for years and it has never failed me! It's great to have a free software that does better than those paid ones. Keep it up.

it took a little getting used to, but i have really only scratched the surface of this tools full potential. What i am really amazed about is when i put my video files through handbrake and it drops it down to 5.5 % . that is amazing. I am saving lots of space on my hard drive now.
