HandBrake 0.9.2

Posted on Thursday, February 21 2008 @ 12:56:54 CET by

HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded DVD to MPEG-4 converter, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows.


Apple fans will be delighted over:

  • Dolby Digital 5.1 (AC3) sound in MP4 files, for a true DVD experience on the AppleTV and in Perian.
  • Multi-track audio support for Apple devices
  • iPhone-compatible anamorphic video at its full size

Power users will find:

  • Variable frame rate encoding with detelecine filtering
  • More flexible, "loose" anamorphic video
  • MP4 optimization for progressive web downloads
  • Dynamic range compression for encoding from AC3 audio
  • Robust program and transport stream support

Speed freaks will squee at:

  • A fresher, faster version of x264
  • Tuning of FIFO sizes by processor count

And everyone should enjoy the increased stability brought by:

  • Better handling of audio discontinuities
  • Better handling of DVD read errors
  • Work-arounds for missing end-of-cell markers
  • Recovery when streams have signal loss
  • Better synced chapter markers
  • Better handling of B-Frames
  • No more cutting off the very ends of films
  • No more lost subtitles or chapter markers
  • No more crashes in 2-pass encoding
