Hand Brake

HandBrake is a general-purpose, open-source, cross-platform, multithreaded video transcoder software application. HandBrake was originally developed by Eric "titer" Petit in 2003 as a general-purpose video transcoder to make ripping a film from a DVD to a data storage device easier. Since then, it has undergone many changes and revisions and become widely popular amongst film enthusiasts.

HandBrake makes use of many LGPL libraries from the Linux platform.
