HandBrake 1.5.1

HandBrake is an open-source video transcoder available for Linux, Mac, and Windows.

HandBrake takes videos you already have and makes new ones that work on your mobile phone, tablet, TV media player, game console, computer, or web browser—nearly anything that supports modern video formats.

HandBrake works with most common video files and formats, including ones created by consumer and professional video cameras, mobile devices such as phones and tablets, game and computer screen recordings, and DVD and Blu-ray discs. HandBrake leverages tools such as FFmpeg, x264, and x265 to create new MP4 or MKV video files from these Sources.

Upgrade Notice

Before updating HandBrake, please make sure there are no pending encodes in the queue, and be sure to make a backup of any custom presets and app preferences you have, as they may not be compatible with newer versions.

Windows users, please make sure to install Microsoft .NET Desktop Runtime version 6.0.0 or later. Read carefully: you need the DESKTOP runtime.
Microsoft .NET Desktop Runtime version 5.0.0 or later is also required. (This dependency will be removed in HandBrake 1.5.1)

This is a rebuild of HandBrake 1.5.0 with no functional changes.
