See "Adding this PPA to your system"

Not sure if the PPA has hardware-accelerated encoding built-in, but someone else can probably comment on that.

Not on that operating system version. It’s too old. You’d need to use Flatpak builds

Please follow the "Flatpak bundles" section here exactly: https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/1.3.0/get- ... stem-linux

If that does not work for you, then there's something weird going on and we'll have to gather more info about your system.
