    • Any multimedia file it can get libavformat to read and libavcodec to decode.
  • Outputs
    • File format: MP4 and MKV
    • Video: MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264 or Theora (1 or 2 passes or constant quantizer/rate encoding)
    • Audio: AAC, HE-AAC, AC3, MP3, Vorbis, FLAC (16-bit, 24-bit) or AAC, MP3, AC3, DTS and DTS-HD pass-through (supports encoding of several audio tracks)
  • Miscellaneous features
    • Chapter selection
    • Soft subtitle support (DVD/VobSub in DVD/MKV/MP4, Blu-ray/PGS in BD/MKV, SRT files, SRT/UTF-8 in MKV, ASS/SSA in MKV, TX3G/3GPP in MP4 - DVD/VobSub, Blu-ray/PGS and ASS/SSA subtitles can also be burned-in the picture)
    • Picture deinterlacing, cropping and scaling
    • Grayscale encoding

Handbrake works very well where as I have Toast Titanium and that does not work any more. So Handbreak now holds top spot on my Mac

Removing the Advanced Panel was a boneheaded move. I won't be updating past ver. 1.1.2
