HandBrake is an application for transcoding files. It was first released in 2003. The program is used to convert videos to different file formats to prepare them for playback on various devices. The program’s main window consists of all the buttons for doing tasks with the application. There are six main buttons on the main window. These are – Source, Start, Add to Queue, Show Queue, Preview, and Activity Window. The bottom part of the main window shows the different settings for converting the video file. There are seven tabs all in all – Picture, Video Filters, Video, Audio, Subtitles, Chapters, and Advanced. Beginners will easily be able to work with the application. Advanced computer users can make use of the advanced options for tweaking the settings for conversion.
One of the features of the HandBrake application is Picture Settings. This allows users to change the look of the video. The Picture Settings enable users to change the size, width, height, and aspect ratio of the video. In addition, the program also has a denoise feature for removing grain or noise from the video image. This helps in improving the quality of the video.
