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

Will Handbrake use Metal2 API in the future, for even faster encoding?

Nope. Everyone has moved away from GPU encoders and onto dedicated hardware encoder ASICs like QuickSync, VCE and NVENC.

We have a patch for Intel QuickSync via the Apple VideoToolbox API, but unfortunately, the Apple APU cripples it's capabilities so we've not decided if we are going to include it or not.
