How to Solve "Some File Refused to be Converted by HandBrake" Error

Handbrake users are allowed to choose DVD, DVD image, DVD VOB files, MPEG-TS, Matroska, AVI, MPEG-4 and more as input. Handbrake cannot at present encode from DRM-encrypted videos purchased from iTunes or found on DVD or Blu-Ray discs. However, if VLC Media Player (64 bit version) is installed under a Unix-based system, encrypted DVDs can be read as well.

Somehow due to there are numerous video codecs available in the current market, you cannot ensure all you video sources are supported by Handbrake. If occasionally you get an error message saying: "some file refused to be converted by HandBrake", which means your source video file is not supported by Handbrake.
