I've used Handbrake for Windows for some time now to rip my movie collection into backup files. However, I've just purchased a Chromebook because my Windows based machine has gone caput. I need help setting up and using the software on the Chromebook please!




I dunno how to even begin getting Handbrake to work on my Chromebook and I apologize if this thread was created in the wrong category




HandBrake version: 1.2.2




Operating system and version ChromeOS: Version 74.0.3729.58 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)




HandBrake Activity Log ***required*** (see How-to get an activity log)

Code: Select all

Please replace this text with the contents of your log file between the two code tags - OR -  provide a pastebin URL in place of these 3 lines.

HandBrake doesn't run on ChromeOS, unfortunately.

Not sure… you'd have to compile from source, and also make sure you have an x86_64 microprocessor, not ARM.

What version of linux? Does the linux distro running on the chromebook have flatpak? If it does, you can install HandBrake from flathub.

As Rodeo said, HandBrake does not run on ARM.

You can not run HandBrake on ChromeOS. It's not compatible with that.
But you can use some other software to create compatibility and run windows bases software on ChromeOS.
You can use "CrossOver" for this.
You can try VMware and then Windows in it to get your work done.
