HandBrake 0.9.4 Released
Tuesday, November 24, 2009
Posted by: Glenn

The HandBrake team has announced the release of HandBrake 0.9.4, an update to their popular video converter. The big news with this release is a new build system that allows 64-bit binaries.

Other improvements in this release include the following:

Great!!! I love HandBrake. ...wonder if they'll ever support Blu-rays (or maybe that's like asking when Apple will support Blu-rays??)

Already does, just not as easily as you might like.

Love the life preview feature. Nothing wrong with it going faster either. I'll take any bump I can get.

I think I liked having the picture setting controls more in the main window, but it rocks.

I downloaded it in GUI 64 bits but it tells me that I need VLC in 64 bits as well, I thought VLC was only in 32 bits.
I replaced it with the 32 bits version and it is as slow as before.
How can I use the 64bits version of Handbrake?

I think they dropped 64-bit with 1.0.3 because the 64-bit version of 1.0.2 was extremely buggy. You can get them from the nightly builds though.
