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.

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.

Handbrake for Android? & a way to have money for the team

Post by ni6hant » Sun Mar 13, 2016 11:43 am

I genuienly think that you guys,whoever built this handbrake thing has done a great job,I totally love you guys BUT i kind of feel bad when downloading it for free,not that I have a lot of money to donate but I have an idea to generate income for you guys...

1)
I just thought it would be really cool to have handbrake for android devices which will require a lot of work because android devices work in a different way but considering how we are getting snapdragon processors and 64 bit processors I would suggest that it's time that handbrake should move to android.....

And take the same approach ppsspp did, make two versions,one with ads and other ad-free but paid....

2) Make a youtube channel on everything you know about android with a name like "handbrake guys"
cause you guys have really made the name 'handbrake' famous...there are about 269,000 videos for handbrake alone

I know it is a lot of work but what are the possibilities just consider it.

comment below as much as you all can so that the real guys who built handbrake could get the news...


& yes let me make this very clear, I don't actually want something in return for giving away this idea simply because you guys didn't asked for anything while I downloaded it for free :)

P.S- If I can be of any help you can always contact me , whatsapp +919565046669 or the username 'ni6hant' be it google,twitter,fb,....

waiting to hear from you

We don't do this for money. It's just something fun to do when we have spare time to kill.

p.s, I'm not sure we want to be responsible for people having their smart phones melt in their jean pockets. That might be a bit problematic :)

Mobile is the wrong place to be doing video transcoding.

Android is the wrong mobile platform for monetization, ads or paid app.

Why would the HB devs have any particularly worthwhile knowledge of Android?

Seems more of a "(I want to) Make Money By Telling Others How To Make Money" scheme to me...
