How to Install HandBrake 1.0.2 on Ubuntu 16.04, 16.10

  HandBrake is a free and open-source video transcoder, originally developed in 2003 by Eric Petit (aka "titer" from his SVN repository username) to make ripping a film from a DVD to a data storage device easier. Since then, it has undergone many changes and revisions.
   HandBrake is available for Linux, macOS, and Windows. It uses third-party libraries such as Libav, libvpx, and x265.

HandBrake 1.0.2 Changelog:

  • Add options for saving and loading queue files
  • Removed system tray icon due to performance issues on Ubuntu
  • Usability improvements
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes
  • And much more, see the announcement 
Installation instructions: 
We can add this PPA to Ubuntu Operating  Systems and install HandBrake with few easy commands.

Open terminal and insert command line...

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk handbrake-cli

For those who have installed handbrake from Ubuntu’s main repository archive, remove it either via Ubuntu Software Center or using the command:

$ sudo apt-get remove handbrake && sudo apt-get autoremove
