"A testament to the open source community"

December 11, 2010  |  By cjcotterill

 |  Version: HandBrake 0.9.4

Pros

Coverts into apple friendly formats for Ipod or Iphone
Simple interface, easy to use
Best open source program I've found for coverting into iphone friendly videos

Cons

Significant drain on system recourses
Only converts for Apple devices

Summary

Another one of those free programs that just work. Easily converts video files into files that Itunes and Iphone/Ipod's can recognize and play. For those who own apple products and dislike the giant heel of Apple (AKA me) and want there home videos/movies to play on there apple device, this program does the job very nicely. Pitty thats all it does....

"Works As Advertised"

November 09, 2010  |  By CCBennett1972

 |  Version: HandBrake 0.9.4

Pros

Open Source and FREE. Easy installation. Glitch Free.

Cons

A little tricky to use at first. Just leave the defaults as they are until you understand the changes you are making.

Summary

This software came highly recommended by many and I can see why. It just works. That is sometimes a difficult claim with free software. I have not used it a whole lot yet but when I do I am confident that I wont have to "baby sit".

"Best DVD to Portable Video File EVER!"

September 13, 2010  |  By MJBrewski

 |  Version: HandBrake 0.9.4

Pros

It works, Audio is perfect (a major problem with most converters), and video is just as clear as on the DVD. And, it's FREE! :)

Cons

It could be a little more user friendly, and convert to more formats.

Summary

This software is AWESOME, a must have if you want all your movies stored on your pc/hard drive/ps3/Xbox/iphone/ipod/etc.

"Couldn't get it to work right"

September 08, 2010  |  By viking29210

 |  Version: HandBrake 0.9.4

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

Lack of editing tools
I couldn't get it to work correctly.

Summary

This program seemed to be what I was looking for: free & easy to use. Well, evidently free still comes at a cost -- I couldn't seem to get it to work correctly! It would rip the first 1.3 hours of a TV movie that I have on DVD fine, but after that point the sound disappeared for some reason. I tried 3 different movies, but all had the same result. Additionally, I could find any reason for the number of files that were created -- one movie generated 3 different files, one created 2, & the third movie was all in one file.

"Works great on limited codecs"

August 03, 2010  |  By jkingo

 |  Version: HandBrake 0.9.4

Pros

Works on .m4v...I think. Sorry, but it works on some, but not AVI or .mkv.

Cons

Not universal.

Summary

You'll need Free Video Converter v2.9.0.0 for .mkv to .mp4. And another for AVI to .mp4. There are free ones out there that are safe, but watch out for some that are questionable. I always trust download.com software; others I look up on Google groups to see if there's a scam. Also, many claim to be free but are come ons. These are good to load videos onto your Droid, which only seems to work with .mp4.

"Far too slow - like insanely slow..."

July 21, 2010  |  By raevyns_wing

Pros

Nice clean interface

Cons

Extremely slow, kinda complicated for the in-experienced

Summary

I was working with Handbrake to convert myDVDs into a playable Mpeg4 format... now thats fine but it took 9 hours to do one 2 hour film...
Not impressed. Enough said.
