What Is HandBrake

HandBrake is a free software program that allows you to convert videos from almost any format. Most commonly, HandBrake is used in the MRC lab as a quick and easy way to encode clips from a DVD. You can use HandBrake to select specific chapters, scenes, or clips and encode them in a format ready to use in one of our video editing programs.
