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

It's still there: right click on the additionals options text field. But it will be removed in 1.3.

Even when version 1.1.2 is installed, it says you need to update it to version 1.1.2…

An amazing and easy to use video transcoder app that just gets the job done. With an abundance of useful features, you will be able to fine-tune your video to your liking. I also enjoy the pop-up messages that HandBrake tells you when encoding a video. They are funny and clever :) Keep up the good work!
