"it works well and free also, two thumbs up !!!"

March 02, 2012  |  By ajibnd

 |  Version: HandBrake 0.9.5

Pros

it is usefull to rip a dvd with a subtitle and you can open it in VLC with choices for the sub track. So it can make a compact video.

Cons

nothing serious it just I always have a problem in ripping from DVD directly, you to copy all the DVD files to your computer first then you can get a great result. Also it is hard to make a default subtitle from srt file.

Summary

This is just what I need.... Excelence!!!!

"Installed/Worked better than expected"

November 20, 2011  |  By gkrosner

 |  Version: HandBrake 0.9.5

Pros

Relatively easy to use and intuitive. No need to read a manual or consult a help file. Absolutely free to use and looks like it hasn't installed any garbage (although one can never tell for sure). Installation on Vista was a piece of cake.

Cons

None - so far so good.

"Fast, free, brilliant, amazing. What more can I say?"

November 05, 2011  |  By jackoboy9

 |  Version: HandBrake 0.9.5

Pros

I have never seen such a brilliant video compressor. My 3.90GB gameplays are now only 200MB. Thank you soooo much to the makers of this program and now I can store 20x more gameplay videos on my external HDD. WELL DONE :)

Cons

NONE! HOW COULD THERE BE?!!

"Not on windows 7"

November 05, 2011  |  By nycom2003

 |  Version: HandBrake 0.9.5

Pros

works great on mac.

Cons

not on windows 7

Summary

I simply cannot get it to work on my windows 7 pc. I tried what the last reviewer wrote with VLC and administrator. I tried title specific conversion. It always stops the conversion prematurely and then gives a scrambled video. Maybe the next update will help. Anyone know of a similar program that works for windows 7? I want to copy my DVDs to a mp4 version for itunes/ipad viewing.

"Got it to work in Windows 7"

October 06, 2011  |  By BRK-A

 |  Version: HandBrake 0.9.5

Pros

Lots of options for controlling final output/format

Cons

Learning curve for all of the options

Summary

Before installing Handbrake, I installed VLC media player first. I installed both by right-clicking the executable and choosing "Run as administrator" (second item in the list). Every time I launch Handbrake, I right-click the icon in the Start Menu and choose "Run as administrator." Haven't had any issues.
