What do you mean by "Owner and Computer metadata."?

Edit: Ah, you mean the file metadata, not container metadata.

That's Windows that does this, not HandBrake. As far as I know there is no way to prevent it.
That's why most your files will have this, regardless of whether they came from HandBrake or not.
