Request to the Developers - Please bring AVI back

Post by IronHedge » Tue Mar 16, 2010 11:43 pm

Hi developers,

This forum post is a request for Handbrake to bring back AVI support as converting DVD's to AVI is a must for my school and Clickview products... At the moment I am forced to stay with 0.9.3 but I have high hopes that support for AVI and other formats will come back..... Im requesting this on behalf of a lot of people.....

Hope to see it back in 0.9.5?

If you really need it (and you're on Windows) just use the freeware mkvmerge to convert to mkv (no loss of quality, just a remux, and lightning fast -- even for two hours of video only takes a few minutes) and run the results through Handbrake. Works great.

(If all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail).

He's requesting AVI output. AVI input is still supported.

Anyway, as has already been said many times, AVI output is not coming back, ever. Locking.
