If you’ve ever wanted to convert a video file, but weren’t sure what to use, then Handbrake might be the programme for you.
There are a lot of “free” applications out there that claim to convert video files easily, but if they work at all, they often come packaged with annoying toolbars or worse; malware. A simple attempt to rip your favourite DVD to your hard drive might end up being something much more destructive, and costly.
Handbrake has recently released a brand new version, which has been in development for 13 years. Open source, cross-platform and without any strings attached, HandBrake takes video files you already have and makes new ones that work on your mobile phone, tablet, media player, game console, computer, or web browser – nearly anything that supports modern video formats.
Whether you want to convert files to watch on your Android device or change the formats on a current file, Handbrake is a risk free and easy to use tool.
