"Fast, reliable video encoder that just works great!"
Fast, already Apple-friendly/wise, reliable, did I mention fast (especially so with an Intel 970 6-Core CPU running @ 4.3Ghz!)
none I can write about here, or not worth writing about
This newest Handbrake 0.9.5 is the cat's meow of video transcoders. All I do is feed it a Video TS file, and BAM! In less than 25 minutes I've got an Apple-TV-ready video converted perfectly to my specs that I set manually in the application, and it works every time. I'm using a Core i7 970-based OEM PC to do the transcoding, and this just makes Handbrake fly like the wind!
The sound always comes out synced and perfect Dolby 5.1 also, which you cannot say about many video encoders that are out there today. I gave this Handbrake 5-stars because it rocks all around! They have been making this application for a long time and the latest iteration will not disappoint, this is "Da Kind" of app you want in the video encoding role for your fast-CPU-based computers, trust me on this I've never seen output like 200+FPS in a software app before I got my hands on this app and tossed it my 970 CPU and a couple Video TS files, and BAM! Less than 40 minutes later my movies were ready for Prime Time, perfectly encoded for AppleTV, just what the doctor ordered.
They asked me to list Cons for this app, and it has none, that's why there aren't any listed. All you have to do is feed Handbrake 0.9.5 a video TS file, wait a few minutes and your encoding will be done fast as lickety-split!
Highly recommended by a long-term hardware encoder person, and there is nothing to top this app either software or hardware that I know of at this time...Handbrake wins, hands down!
