How to Install Handbrake on Ubuntu 13.04

Hello Linux Geeksters. In this article I will show you how to install HandBrake 0.9.8 on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail.

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.

There is no HandBrake PPA available for Ubuntu 13.04, so we will use the 12.10 HandBrake *.deb.

This is how you install HandBrake on Ubuntu 13.04:

Download the handbrake*.deb, for 32 bit systems:

$ wget -c https://launchpad.net/~stebbins/+archive/handbrake-releases/+files/handbrake-gtk_0.9.8%2Bppa1~quantal1_i386.deb

Download the handbrake*.deb, for 64 bit systems:

$ wget -c https://launchpad.net/~stebbins/+archive/handbrake-releases/+files/handbrake-gtk_0.9.8%2Bppa1~quantal1_amd64.deb

Install handbrake and fix the dependencies:

$ sudo dpkg -i handbrake*
$ sudo apt-get -f install

    Thank you! This is easily 4x faster than DVD::RIP. Handbrake is great on my Mac, but flies on my ubuntu machine.
