This software was originally created in 2003 by the Eric Petit who made this app exclusively for the shortly lived BeOS operating system, but was shortly after ported to Windows, MacOS, and Linux (Ubuntu). Petit continued being active on the development of the app until 2006 when he left and enabled its community to continue working on updates (originally made under the name “MediaFork”, but later renamed back to Handbrake).
Today, after so many years and turbulent state of development, Handbrake 64-bit still represents one of the most popular video conversion programs on the market, with support for many features that make the conversion process easy and intuitive. Even still, the program remains to be 100% free and with regular updates continues to expand its capability to work with all currently popular video and audio codecs on the market.
Just a few of the reasons we think you'll love this software:

With loads of pre-set formats available for almost any standard: Android, Apple, Playstation, Vimeo, YouTube, Windows, and Matroska, among others, this app is capable of reworking videos at up to 4K resolution and almost any aspect ratio you need. The only drawback is that outside of presets, you have to adjust everything manually in order to set up dimensions, codecs, apply cuts, modify subtitling, bitrate, etc.
Once you've made these changes you'll get a full preview of your video, and can watch as the final version of your file is fully rendered and saved at within the route you preselected. Handbrake is no doubt one of the best free tools in this field. Its main appeal is that it offers you a minimalist interface with a whole arsenal of possibilities without overcomplicating things like other editing suites do.
