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

Download over and over again

Description of problem or question:
I just downloaded and was told I already had the program, which I had forgotten about. I ticked the box to get rid of that and install the new one. Now when I try to open the program it goes through the installation routine each time and won`t open the program. I get "Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device" I tick yes and we are into the install routine again. Including the bt about already having it and do I want to get rid of it. Am I doing something wrong here?

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

Windows 10
