HandBrake is a popular open source, multiplatform video transcoder. After spending more than 13 years in development, this veteran software has finally hit version 1.0.0. It can process the most common media files and DVD/Blu-ray sources that don’t have any type of copy protection.

Being the version 1.0.0, it’s loaded with tons of features and bug fixes. The most useful changes come in the overhauled preset department that features a new pile of presets for common devices.

HandBrake 1.0.0 Features

HandBrake 1.0.0 comes with new web and MKV presets. The official presets from HandBrake 0.10.x can be found under ‘Legacy.’ New Jason-based preset system, including command line support, has been added.

The additional features of HandBrake are title/chapter selection, queuing up multiple encodes, chapter markers, subtitles, different video filters, and video preview.

Just in case you have a compatible Skylake or later CPU, Intel QuickSync Video H.265/HEVC encoder support brings performance improvements.

HandBrake 1.0.0 also brings along new online documentation beta. It’s written in a simple and easy-to-understand language.
