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.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask in the General Forum

Re: x264 10bit and x265 10 and 12bit

Please note, HandBrake nightly builds no longer requires x265 dll's for 10 and 12bit encoders. These are now baked in as they are with 8bit.

Only x264 10bit dll is now required if you wish to encode to that.
