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

The Mac version can already do it, not sure about the Windows version.

The Windows version (1.0.3 2017022500 64bit) does NOT have the option to play a sound when the queue is finished. the options are:
Do Nothing
Shutdown
Suspend
Hibernate
Lock System
Log Off
Quit HandBrake

It doesn't but some people use the SendFileTo option in preferences to invoke a script to do it.

Unfortunatly when we removed growl due to it's lack of maintenance and problems, we lost this ability. It's something I plan to revisit to see if we can get some of the functionality back even if I have to code it myself.

Done: https://github.com/HandBrake/HandBrake/ ... 6eeac944ad

It'll be available in the next nightly build, or 1.1 whenever that lands. (no eta)
