HandBrake 0.9.9.5530 / 0.10 RC1

A multithreaded DVD to MPEG-4 converter
HandBrake is a tool that enables you to convert DVDs to MP4 or MKV video format. The interface of the application is standard and both beginners and experienced individuals can easily get accustomed to this program.

You can import a DVD folder by using the file browser or the "drag and drop" method. Then, you can select the title and chapters, preset, output format destination, as well as configure settings before initiating the encoding process.

You can apply many video filters (grayscale, detelecine, decomb, deinterlace, denoise, deblock), as well as set the video codec, framerate and quality, audio codec, mixdown, sample frequency rate and bitrate.

Also, you can add, remove or import subtitles (in the SRT format only) and enable the "Forced Only", "Burned In" and "Default" options, create chapter markers and import/export a CSV file.

When it comes to advanced options, you can select the encoding method (e.g. reference frames), psychovisual, analysis (e.g. "Adaptive Direct Mode"), partition type, deblocking, and others.

Additionally, you can preview results, create a task list (i.e. batch conversions), import and export presets, configure program settings, and more.

The program uses a moderate amount of system resources, takes a long time to complete a task but manages to keep very good image and sound quality. There's also an online user guide available.

The bottom line is that HandBrake is a very good tool for converting DVD files to the MP4 or MKV format and we strongly recommend it to all users.
