Below are some useful tips about Handbrake. You can click the title you need to read the detailed content.

Tutorial: Convert Video and DVD with Handbrake 1.0.0 (Windows)

Step 1: Open Handbrake and click on the “Source” button at the top left to load your DVD and video files. Select the folder, and click “OK.”

Step 2: You may be prompted to set a default path in Handbrake. This is an optional step. Click “OK.”

If you’d like to set a default destination folder, Go to Tools on the top menu, select Options. On the General tab, click “Browse” to select a destination output folder. Click “Close” when Finished.

Step 3: Next, click the dropdown list next to “Title.” Select the title that matches the length of the movie. It’s possible you may have see more than one title with a similar length. If so, consult the DVD information, or a site like IMDB.com, to find the proper movie title length. Select your container under Output Settings. This will be your final output file extension. We will be using MP4 for this example. You also have the option of MKV.

Step 4: If you didn’t set up a default destination folder, you’ll need to select one by clicking the “Browse” button. You can manually customize the output file name and change the output file extension to .mp4 (Unless you prefer the iPod friendly .m4v extension).

Settings

There are a variety of custom settings that can be changed either through the tabs listed under Output Settings, or by selecting one of the Presets to the right.
If converting exclusively for any of the devices listed in the preset list, simply click on that device and the settings will be automatically applied in the Output Settings tabs. For more Universal (non-Apple) devices or output, select the Normal profile.

The Video tab allows you to choose your codec. H.264 is the default. You also have the option to choose a target (output) size. The Constant Quality is recommended to be set between 59% – 63%. Anything over 70% will likely result in an output file larger than the input without any improved quality.

Customizing Audio settings

We can control our Audio quality in the tab named “Audio Defaults”.

“Encoder” – Here we can select which audio encoder our video file will use.

“Bitrate”  – Number of bits per second. Higher values mean higher audio quality

“Mixdown” – Set the mixdown of a track. Most common options are Stereo, Mono, 5.1, Dolby Surround.

“Samplerate” –  The more samples taken per second, the more accurate the digital representation of the sound can be.

“Gain” – If our audio is low or high we can use Gain slider to manage a gain of volume.

Step 5: When you’ve finished any customizations you are ready to begin the conversion process. Click “Start.”A Command window will open and you can follow the process. You’ll probably want to find something to do in the meantime as the process could take a couple of hours. When the process completes, you’re ready to watch your video.

Q: “I’m using AnyDVD and Handbrake to rip my DVDs. I’ve been playing around with one DVD in which the resulting MP4 has the audio out of sync by around 500ms for Main or High profiles. From testing I’ve found the audio is synced if the output file is MKV, or Baseline profile is used. I’ve muxing the audio separately and reboxing the MKV to MP4 with no success. I am using the constant frame rate setting also. I was wondering if anyone could help me out. Thanks.”

A: Some old computer may lacks the configuration to playback high definition video which can easily result in “HandBrake audio falls behind video” issue. Learn how to Fix Handbrake Video Audio Out of Sync When Converting Video/DVD

Q: "How to Deinterlace Video with Handbrake Deinterlace and Decomb?"

Q: "For a while now I haven’t been able to encode videos with HandBrake 0.99.5530 (and older versions) on my PC with Windows 7 64-bit because the encoding never gets past 00.00%. I’ve tried many different videos and formats. I’ve upgraded versions and reinstalled HandBrake but it still isn’t working. I know the videos are ok because they encoded on my Mac and a friend’s PC perfectly. This computer has encoded perfectly before in HandBrake.”

A: From some user’s own experience and what he have seen reported in the forums, the pause is usually associated with particular discs, and that lower-end machines are more likely to be delayed at the end like this(Testing shows that PowerBook G4 1Ghz with 1GB of memory was delayed often, but my PowerMac dual 2Ghz with 2GB of memory rarely is). In addition, when you use Handbrake to convert video or rip DVD, the computers usually consume a lot of power, especially if you use a CRT monitor (those big bulky ones that weigh a ton!). So, turn off the monitor if you don’t have to look at the screen that frequently. Only leave the monitor on while you are using the machine. If you can, get LCDs – they cost a little more, but the savings on power will be enough to make up for that little extra expense or go for a laptop.

Q: "I’m use Handbrake occasionally to rip DVDs from my collection for viewing on my Apple TVs, iPads, etc. I notice that every time I choose a DVD to rip, HB has to scan through 20-40 different “titles” and guess which one contains the actual movie in the correct order vs the “dummy” titles or the out-of-order titles, etc. I know these titles are inserted into the directory structure in an attempt to fool ripping software such as HB."

A: If your Handbrake always fail to select the right DVD title when scanning DVD disc, the first thing you are recommended to do is checking whether the DVD movies is copy protected or badly mastered. It is well known Handbrake can only rip non-protected DVD disc, DVD folder and ISO image file. If your DVD movies is stored purchased commercial ones with region code and copy protection, Handbrake will fail to scan those titles for you. In addition, if your DVD movies are equipped with one of the most strict encryptions – 99 title copy protection which is widely adopted by Disney, Warner Brothers, Paramount, etc, not to say Handbrake but even some commercial DVD Ripper software will rip 99 title DVD with errors.

Q: "VLC 2.0 with Handbrake won’t rip commercial DVD on Mac"

A: The most simple way to fix this issue is uninstall the VLC 2.0 version on your Mac computer and then reinstall the previous version of VLC player, which will work well with Handbrake to decrypt copy protected DVD movies. Learn more solutions
