is it better to use github to report a bug?
do the developers read github more than the handbrake bug forum?

While we prefer GitHub, it doesn't mean you'll get a faster response. Same day responses are not uncommon on the forum as well.

It's down to when someone has time to volunteer to fix it. We are not always as good at updating forum posts though.

There are plenty of issues on both that are sitting there for some time.
