Comment on Handbrake

Handbrake is one of those amazing apps you have to talk about.

I needed to convert 3GB EyeTV files (70 minutes) to normal sized .avi files for storage reasons (obviously). I tried a handful of conversion programs that had complicated interfaces and didn't work in the end. Handbrake is so straight forward. It does what you expect it to. It's also fast, remarkably stable, and doesn't hog resources (only using 67MB RAM on a 3GB file? Wow!). Just load up the queue and let Handbrake take care of the rest. I think I will have that cocktail now.
