handbrake ubuntu 14.04

HandBrake, a free and open source video transcoder, finally gets an update by releasing 0.10 beta. It has been such a long time since the last v0.9.9.

Today we are releasing the first of several beta’s for the 0.10 release with the hope of releasing a final build sometime in the next couple of months.
The 0.10 release will give us the opportunity to push out many improvements, but allow us to continue working on the new API we have planned for the 1.0 release.

Handbrake is a free and open source tool for converting video from nearly any format to a selection of modern, widely supported codecs. It was originally developed by Eric “titer” Petit in 2003 to make ripping a film from a DVD to a data storage device easier. Since then, it has undergone many changes and revisions.

  • File Containers: .MP4(.M4V) and .MKV
  • Video Encoders: H.264(x264), MPEG-4 and MPEG-2 (libav), and Theora(libtheora)

Instal Handbrake in Ubuntu:

Handbrake 0.10 released, and you can install it via the developer’s PPA in Ubuntu 14.04 or Ubuntu 14.10. Just run commands below one by one in terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk handbrake-cli

The official download link will point Ubuntu users to the launchpad PPA, which only supports Ubuntu 13.04 Raring and earlier. I’ve tested the raring’s build in Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty and fortunately it works!

Handbrake now is available in the default Ubuntu repositories since 14.04 trusty, so all we need to do is update the system and then search for and install the package in Ubuntu Software Center.
