Overview

HandBrake is a free and open-source video transcoder to convert video from one format to another, and to rip CD/DVD to popular video formats. It transcodes video and audio from nearly any format to a handful of modern ones, but it does not defeat or circumvent copy protection. Its developers removed libdvdcss (the open-source library responsible for unscrambling DVDs encrypted with the Content Scramble System (CSS)) from the application in version 0.9.2.
