Install HandBrake Video Transcoder on Ubuntu or Linux Mint

By Umair Sunday, May 06, 2012

HandBrake is a cross-platform video transcoder that supports most common multimedia formats, DVDs or Bluray-like sources that aren't copy-protected. The application can even create chapters or add subtitles.

After more than a year, a new HandBrake version has been released: 0.9.6, and it includes many improvements, such as:
  • updated encoders / decoders
  • audio gain control (increase/decrease audio volume) and a new advanced audio GUI section for gain and audio track names
  • new AAC encoder
  • FLAC encoder (16-bit, MKV container only)
  • advanced options support for libavcodec
  • improved "Normal" preset (much faster, similar file size and quality)
  • added new device presets for Android phones/tablets recent and/or powerful devices
  • many other improvements and bug fixes
For a complete list of changes, check out the HandBrake 0.9.6 changelog.

Currently this is not available for Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, So don't install it on Ubuntu 12.04
