DVD folders can be imported either using the file browser or by the more intuitive and attractive “drag and drop” method.
Encoding is not the only operation performed by HandBrake.
You also have the possibility of applying video filters, such as grayscale, decomb, deinterlace, deblock or denoise.
Don’t settle for less and also set the video codec, the quality, the framerate, the sample frequency rate and other advanced features as you wish.
Additionally, you can add, remove or import subtitles (only in the SRT format, though), and create chapter markers.
After playing with all the features of HandBrake, you can preview your results before conversion and apply other conversion options, as well, such as task lists, presets or program settings.
Apart from the subtitles, another limitation of this virtual item is the fact that unencrypted protection methods including CSS are not supported internally and they must be resolved externally using additional software and libraries.
Returning to advantages, HandBrake uses a moderate amount of system resources and it retrieves amazing image and sound quality. Although conversion takes a while, it is worth waiting when you know that the results are top-notch.
The latest versions of HandBrake include improvements such as Blu-ray subtitle support, burning-in, being able to pass through to MKV, and working with Foreign Audio Search.
As a bottom line, HandBrake is a comprehensive tool that will satisfy both average and power users; it comes with a variety of features allowing you to get the best out of your DVDs.
It is an excellent tool, versatile and easy to use at the same time.
