With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

Re: How to rip a dvd on iMac running 10.8.2

When Handbrake if longer has access to those libraries, then what are you going to do? Or media formats that Handbrake will never be able to read? Having a half of a dozen Bluray drives better than pre-ripping? I guess. SC All depends on your point of view I suppose. Everyone uses HB a bit differen...

Re: Best preset to achieve highest quality conversion

I'm on the brink using handbrake to convert hundreds of movies into iPad 3/iPhone 5/AppleTV 3 compatible files, and my goal is to achieve the highest possible output quality for each individual file. I'd like to be able to permanently delete the original movies files once I'm done with the conversi...

Re: How to rip a dvd on iMac running 10.8.2

I inserted the dvd in the iMac. Opened Handbrake. Went to source. Then I get two files Audio_TS Video_TS. Now what do I do? Rip each one of them and if so how do I get them together to make the movie? Select the DVD in the HB Source window as you state above. You'll see the two files but don't sele...

Re: VHS tapes to JPEG

Frankly, your best bet is just to go out and buy a combo DVD/VHS player that allows you to copy in both directions. I've had one for a few years now and its come in handy for moving those old VHS [Censored] videos to DVD and then working from there.
