Software update: HandBrake 1.2.1




Version 1.2.1 of HandBrake has recently appeared. This open source program, which is available for Windows, Linux and macOS, can convert movie material to files with an h.264, h265 or mpeg4 format and an aac, ac3, mp3 or Ogg Vorbis sound format. There are presets for commonly used equipment, such as an iPad, AppleTV or Android tablet, and things like chapter division and subtitling can also be taken into account.
