What do you like best?
I like the different optimization features when exporting videos, the ease of using presets and the availability of options. While compressed videos are hard to further reduce the file size, it is highly effective when it comes to projects that need to be uploaded.
What do you dislike?
When it comes to Handbrake, one of the biggest issues I disliked is the outdated interface, making the batch options annoying to use and annoying to make new presets. The rendering options can be a little slow sometimes, but I guess that is to expect from a software that is still in development.
Recommendations to others considering the product
When it comes to compressing video files, Handbrake is one of the most complete options available for free. While it does lack some features compared to paid solutions, it does bring content to the table which is often lacking. Even if it is something simple like uploading a video to a website, this is a highly useful tool that will often save a headache in the process.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I have been able to compress the file size of videos which help me sending projects and drafts to client faster, reducing the time not of the upload process from our side but also the download from their side.
