HandBrake 1.61 Released

Post by HandBrake »

Upgrade Notice

Before updating HandBrake, please make sure there are no pending encodes in the queue, and be sure to make a backup of any custom presets and app preferences you have, as they may not be compatible with newer versions.

Windows users, please make sure to install [Microsoft .NET Desktop Runtime version 6.0.x](https://dotnet.microsoft.com/en-us/download/dotnet/6.0). Read carefully: you need the **DESKTOP** runtime. You must install .NET 6 even if you have installed .NET 7.

Release Notes
For a full list of improvements and fixes, please see our release notes on GitHub.

This release focuses on fixing a few bugs from the initial 1.6.0 release.

Reporting Issues or Providing Feedback
If you happen to discover any reproducible bugs, issues, or just want to provide feedback, please tell us on our GitHub issue tracker. You can also get in touch on our IRC community support channel.

Please be aware, the HandBrake app is built by a very small team of volunteers in our free time. As such, it may not be possible for an immediate response but we do see your comments and welcome constructive feedback!

Thanks and Contributing
Some of the features in this release have come from HandBrake users or companies. Translations have come from a vibrant community of volunteers throughout the globe. We'd like to thank everyone who contributed!

On that note, if you are interested in contributing but don't today, please take a read of our contributing guide. There are many ways you can contribute and you don't need to be a developer to do so.
