HandBrake was reviewed by Ionut Tutica
HandBrake is a free application with which you can convert any video in MP4 or MKV format.
Developers recommend using the presets included if you do not have the advanced knowledge required to use the HandBrake application, but there is an online user guide available.
The application interface is quite standard and you can easily configure the settings before the encoding process. You can also add multiple filters to the video files such as grayscale, detencine, decomb, deinterlace, denoise, deblock, and video codecs, use Intel Quick Sync for H.264, H.265 hardware acceleration, and MPEG codecs -4, MPEG-2, VP8, Theora, AAC, HE-AAC, MP3, AC3, OGG. You can preview results, create batch conversions, configure your program settings, and more.
The program uses a moderate amount of the system, but it takes a long time to complete a video file, but it does not get stuck and even manages to keep the picture and sound quality.
In conclusion, HandBrake is a pretty good utility for converting video files into MP4 or MKV container and we recommend it to all advanced users or professionals.
