Hello Linux Geeksters.
In this article I will show you how to install HandBrake 0.9.9 on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin.
As you may know, HandBrake 0.9.9 has been just released. For those who don’t know, HandBrake is an open-source multiplatform multithreaded video transcoder. It is used for converting DVD or Bluray discs to formats like MP4, MKV, H.264, MPEG-4 or other formats. You can also encode audio files like AAC, MP3, Flac, AC3 etc.
Let’s start the installation. Because we have a PPA available for HandBrake 0.9.9, all we have to do is:
Add the repo:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases
Update the repos:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk
