    Excellent - Thanks for that. My version insisted it was up to date
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Re: HandBrake video transcoder reaches version 1.0.0

    I wonder if there's any improvement on the dreadful default aac codec? Handbrake used to include the decent FDK codec but due to some silly licensing issues they've been forced to fall back to the poor quality, experimental libav AAC codec - something which wasn't made nearly obvious enough (seriously, it's bad enough it deserves a big red flashing warning when faac is selected) and I didn't realise until I'd transcoded a few videos with my own preset and gotten rid of the originals, only to be left wondering why all the videos sounded like they'd been starved of bitrate and recorded next to the sea.

    Even its creators state the following explicitly:
    The native encoder is experimental and known to have serious flaws, help on improving it is welcome. Do not use it in production
    So why do the Handbrake team think it's acceptable to use in production releases?

    Same. I was on 0.10.(something).
    Facts don't exist, only interpretations.

    Re: HandBrake video transcoder reaches version 1.0.0

    Although I am a video editor(a novice actually), I really don't know anything about handbrake. I've been using wondershare video converter ultimate for quite a while. Is that somehow superior?
