Convert or re-encode videos

One software we recommend but don’t provide support for is Handbrake. It’s free software available for Mac, Windows, and Linux that’s really good at converting videos.

This can be useful if, for example, you have a movie that is too big to upload to Streamio.

Handbrake is downloaded free of charge at

Start the program and select the movie you want to convert. Handbrake contains lots of information about the video and functions for changing the video, such as deleting an audio track or fine tuning other settings. Under “Preset,” you can choose from several well-balanced encoding profiles, and you can, at the bottom of the program window, choose where the movie should be saved. You can queue up several movies and then let the computer work through them.
