App To Convert Video For iPods, PMPs and More!

Convert video for your iPod, iPod Touch and other PMP players by using Handbrake!

The full spiel on Handbrake is that it’s an “open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows.”

Which as well as sounding a bit geeky, also sounds pretty nice!

It currently supports the following formats and codecs: –

  • File format: MP4, MKV, AVI or OGM
  • Video: MPEG-4, H.264, or Theora (1 or 2 passes or constant quantizer/rate encoding)
  • Audio: AAC, MP3, Vorbis or AC-3 pass-through (supports encoding of several audio tracks)

You can download it from the following links:

GTK GUI (Ubuntu 8.10 x86 Binaries) (9.4 MB)

Linux 64bit

GTK GUI (Ubuntu 8.10 64bit Binaries) (10 MB)

(NB: I use Handbrake in Jaunty and it works flawlessly)
