Handbrake video conversion tool adds Blu-ray support, more device presets

Popular cross-platform video conversion app Handbrake has updated to version 0.9.5 and added some very important new features. Handbrake now supports Blu-ray ripping -- but you will, of course, still need a decryption app like DVDFab. The new version also adds more device presets, batch scanning, and the ability to edit entries in your conversion queue. Adding files on Windows has gotten easier, too, with the addition of drag-and-drop.

Handbrake 0.9.5 also brings numerous bugfixes and UI tweaks, and the app's x264 and ffmpeg libraries have been updated, which should yield some additional performance gains. Some users are reporting that Handbrake's check for updates feature is not seeing the new version yet, so follow the download link below to get your hands on it right now!
