Install HandBrake Video Converter on Ubuntu 11.10/11.04/10.10/10.04/Linux Mint

HandBrake is a GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder.
HandBrake is not a ripper. It converts video, it does not rip it byte by byte. It does not crack the latest DVD copy protection schemes hatched by the studios.
It converts video from nearly any format to a handful of modern ones—that's it.

HandBrake is not everything for everyone for every need. When you desire a ChickenSandwich, search out a local purveyor of prepared foodstuffs. When you desire an ├╝ber-tool for all your video encoding needs, learn how to use the command line and seek out projects like mencoder.
