Review on the Latest HandBrake Version 0.9.8 for Windows
HandBrake 0.9.8 was released on July 18, 2012. What about the newest version of this open-source and GPL-licensed video transcoder applied for Windows, Mac and Linux OS? To make HandBrake 0.9.8 review, I just tested the windows version on my laptop in my own person.
To know what's new in HandBrake 0.9.9, please refer to HandBrake 0.9.9 review.
What's New in HandBrake 0.9.8
I am not gonna say this is a big update, because it can only be considered as bug fixing work based on the previous versions 0.96 and 0.97. The specific update content includes:
* New AppleTV3 preset
* Updated iPad preset
Personal Review on HandBrake 0.9.8
To give an accurate review on HandBrake 0.9.8, I made sure I downloaded the latest version on HandBrake official website first.
The download speed is quite fast and the file size is small enough to give me satisfaction. Once I ran it on my computer, I saw this interface:
And I figured out the following useful information:
Source: Video File, folder, title specific scan
Output Settings (Container): MP4 file, MKV file
After I chose the DVD as the source, it began to process the titles one by one. Transforers DVD has 99 titles totally, and HandBrake 10.9.8 took more than 8 minutes before not completing DVD title importing.
What was totally annoying is when it was processing Title 90, it got all stuck. Then I realized such DVD with special copy protection was not supported by Handbrake, even for the latest version 0.9.8. So is the case with other copy protected DVDs. Therefore, Handbrake can only convert SOME of commercial DVDs. (See how to solve "Cannot Handbrake DVD Mission Impossible 4" problem) This makes it very inconvenient to copy commercial DVD even if HandBrake can take advantage of VLC to find the main title number and probably remove copy protections inside the DVDs. Take the DVD Transformers 2 for example, the main title number is 76.
HandBrake 0.9.7 was reported to have a large amount of bugs, and admittedly 0.9.8 just fixed them successfully. However, WD problem has not been resolved yet, and we still have to remux with mkvmerge.
An Easier Tool for Video Transcoding and DVD Copying
From HandBrake 0.9.8 review above, we can conclude HandBrake is a good choice for the person who needs a totally free DVD video transcoding program and specializes in profile settings. But generally speaking, HandBrake 0.9.8 is still too complex for beginners or average users who are not so professional in parameter settings, although the profiles provided are very rich.
If you have the similar feeling and need an easier-to-use tool to back up your commercial DVD (esp. the latest ones), why not try a professional DVD ripper? For example, WinX DVD Ripper Platinum is DVD ripping and copy software that can fit all you up-to-date DVD backup needs. In support of all kinds of DVDs (included that encrypted with CSS, region code, RCE, Sony ArccOS, UOPs and Disney X-project DRM), it allows more input and output formats than HandBrake does.
And the profiles for all the popular devices are preset and built in WinX DVD Ripper Platinum, so you can conveniently play back DVD video on iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, PSP, mobile phone, etc. without complicated manual operations.
If you are a Mac OS user, please choose Mac version DVD ripper.
They are recommended for better support for latest encrypted DVDs and are more suitable for comer user who dislikes troubles.
