Love it. Wonderfully easy interface, encode-queueing, and it works better than any of my PC-counterpart's dvd rippers. I'm actually considering installing BeOS/reinstalling a Linux distro on my PC just for video encoding with this app (the processor is about twice as fast).

I recentrly got an iPod video and al videos in there, are because this app. Its really really nice

all it needed was the icon change posted on digg a few weeks ago.

This is a greap app, perfect for ripping DVD media to your hard drive or video ipod, I just wish it had savable settings, and could deal with formats other than DVD, but for what it does it does it better than anyone else.

Used it to test 'The Patriot' for a video iPod....works like a charm!

Phil's points to some excellent resources. I installed the mod files fine, and now Handbrake looks as good as it works

Phill Ryu has a couple of good suggestions about how to cosmetically improve your Handbrake. http://www.phillryu.com/2006/07/04/pimp-your-app-make-handbrake-dock-worthy/
