Lite version of the popular video encoder.

Overview

HandBrake Lite is a free, simple to use program, used to create iPod sized movies from DVDs

If you know what HandBrake is, HandBrake Lite will do the same thing, but HandBrake Lite is easier to use, as it automatically applies the settings you need to make iPod sized movies, and saves you the time of setting everything up yourself.

I've used HandBrake once, and I still haven't tried out HandBrake Lite. When I used HandBrake, It took a long time, and ran my PowerBook G4 very hard. I was wondering if HandBrake Lite is faster, and easier on a computer.

The link is to an early version of Handbrake Lite created when Handbrake was not under active development. It was made by the author of VisualHub (a sadly missed product), and predates that product. The current version of Handbrake with VLC installed is much better in speed and encoding quality.

Video encoding is ALL about cpu. Any encoding programmes will use as much CPU as they can get with only small differences in speed realistically. Especially for h.264 encoding. When I do a high quality encode into .mp4(h.264) on my Powerbook G4 (1.66GHz) it often takes 20hours+. It's good that the Handbrake team are coming up with ways to improve ease of use because it can take a tech. savvy person a lot of reading (like it did me) to fully understand all the features and settings of video encoding.

I still have yet to use it, and I still am not a fan of the cartoony icon, but I must say that the sippy cup, instead of the martini glass, for the lite version makes me laugh.
