HandBrake 1.2.1 Released [Updated to 1.2.2]

Post by HandBrake »

The HandBrake Team is pleased to announce the release of HandBrake 1.2.2. This patch / bug fix release remedies issues reported with the 1.2.0 release

If you happen to discover any reproducible bugs or issues, please tell us about them on our GitHub issue tracker. You can also get in touch on our IRC support channel.

Upgrade Notice

Before updating, please make sure there are no pending encodes in the Queue. If you are currently using HandBrake older than version 1.2.0, please also make note of any custom presets you have created, as they may not be compatible with newer versions.

Please note, there appears to be an issue with the built-in update checker in the mac version of 1.2.0. You will need to download via the website if your currently using this release. The Windows update checker is not affected.

We've released 1.2.2 to take care of two additional issues.

- The Mac built-in updater should now work correctly for future releases
- The Windows release was throwing an error on first run.
