Handbrake is a program for converting videos into different codecs. There are certain devices and programs that will only work with videos that have specific codecs. If you have a video that won’t work on your device or a certain program you can use Handbrake to transcode the video into a different codec to allow you to use it.
Handbrake has multiple codecs it allows you to transcode your video into. You can select from Web, Devices, Matroska (Mkv), or Production. When choosing you can convert into different resolutions and frame rates. You can convert into 1080p, 2160p, 480p and more. Depending on the video you are converting, converting higher resolution or frame rate will not add quality to your video but will still allow you to meet certain sequence requirements for programs or devices.
Runs on all versions of Windows, Linux, and Mac. Excellent on newer, fast computers, but will also run well on older, slower computers. Handbrake has been designed for desktops and laptops, and is not available for phones, tablets, or Chromebooks.
