Handbrake RPMs for Mandriva 2008.1 / 2009.1 / 2010.0

Handbrake is a great open-source, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder with a CLI and a GTK GUI interface. It can transcode from DVDs and many other types of video to H.264 (x264), Mpeg4 (ffmpeg) and Theora.
Alternatively to Handbrake you might also want to try OGMRip, which offers similar functionality.

You can find here a rpm package of the Handbrake svn2508 version (09/Jun/2009) compiled from the original source code on Mandriva Linux 2008.1 (reported to work fine on Mandriva 2009.0, too) and a separate package for Mandriva Linux 2009.1. This svn version has quite a few additional bug fixes and enhanchements compared to the last release version (0.9.3).
See for change details.

I will keep building an updated Handbrake RPM for Mandriva from time to time, so check this page occasionally, if interested.

Update (05/Dec/2009): Version 0.9.4 of Handbrake has been released now and I have made a package for Mandriva 2010.0 of it, see below. Packages for older Mandriva versions will follow soon.

Install instructions:
1) Please make sure that in addition to the official Mandriva repositories, you also have the PLF repositories added as installation sources, as the Handbrake package is dependent on packages from the PLF repository, too.
2) urpmi handbrake-svn2508-1mdv2008.1.i586.rpm
3) a new menu entry for Handbrake should show up in the 'Sound & Video' programs menu, just click on it to launch Handbrake! Enjoy ;-)
