Handbrake Lives Again

HandbrakeHandbrake, that old faithful, open-source DVD ripper and video converter, has joined forces with the team that gave us MediaFork, the open-source community-contributed fork of HandBrake. The new name? .... Handbrake!

What's new? Loads and Windows users even have a GUI version instead of the old command-line one. Here's a brief list of the new stuff…

  • User presets (Mac).
  • AppleTV and PS3 support.
  • Anamorphic, even in QuickTime.
  • Surround sound (both AAC 5.1 and Dolby Pro Logic II).
  • Chapter markers (QuickTime-style).
  • Official support for the Windows GUI.
  • PPC Linux support.
  • High profile H.264 support.
