HandBrake is an open-source video transcoder available for Linux, Mac, and Windows. Everyone can use HandBrake to make videos for free.
HandBrake is a post-production tool. Its primary purpose is to convert videos from supported source formats to MP4, MKV, or WebM format. If you wish to make changes to your Source video, please use an appropriate video editing software.
What HandBrake does
HandBrake takes videos you already have and makes new ones that work on your mobile phone, tablet, TV media player, game console, computer, or web browser—nearly anything that supports modern video formats.
HandBrake works with most common video files and formats, including ones created by consumer and professional video cameras, mobile devices such as phones and tablets, game and computer screen recordings, and DVD and Blu-ray discs. HandBrake leverages tools such as FFmpeg, x264, and x265 to create new MP4, MKV, or WebM video files from these Sources.
