How to Install ‘HandBrake’ 0.10.2 on Fedora 22?

Whether it’s ripping a DVD or converting a multimedia file into a different format, ‘HandBrake’ is one of my favorite video transcoders due its powerful features. Where most others lack (subtle) advanced features such as video cropping, ‘Handbrake’ has it all, well, almost.

With ‘HandBrake’ you can crop (manually or automatically), add denoise filters, change height/width & aspect ratio, encode the video based on the bitrate or quality, gain audio volume, change the sample rate & channels, add multiple audio streams, add subtitles & DVD chapters, and a whole lot more.

That said, ‘HandBrake’ contained a very useful feature that used to let one to set the quality, based on the output file’s size, but it’s not there anymore. And that’s my only complaint so far 🙂 .

So anyway, if you’re using Fedora 22 and want to install the latest version (0.10.2), then please follow the below steps. They’re based on the command-line, but they’re easy to follow.

1. If you have already enabled the ‘RPMFusion’ repository (it includes proprietary software packages that Fedora doesn’t provide due to their proprietary licenses etc) then you can skip this step. Otherwise, enter the below command to enable it:

sudo rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-22.noarch.rpm

2. Then enter the below command to enable the ‘HandBrake’ repository (kindly provided by ‘Negativeo17‘):

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo=http://negativo17.org/repos/fedora-handbrake.repo

3. Now enter the below commands to install ‘HandBrake’ and the ‘libdvdcss’ package (which is required to decrypt DVDs) :

sudo dnf install HandBrake-gui libdvdcss

That’s it!. If you use the ‘Gnome3 Classic’ desktop like me, then you should be able to open it through the ‘Sound & Video’ section of the Main Menu.

  1. Excellent! Thank you so much for this post! Do you have any other posts related to HT media servers, etc? I am on a mission to digitize all my disks: audio CDs, DVDs, and Blu rays. To that end I am working on building a media server (Plex?) and dvr (MythTV?) so that I can serve all my media from our NAS and DVR live TV! I know it sounds ambitious, but I’d like to eventually have everything coming from a single UI and maybe even cut the cable cord! 🙂

    • Hi Dave,

      You’re welcome. Unfortunately, I don’t think I have any posts about media streaming. Good luck with your project though 🙂 .

  2. I followed your instruction to install Handbrake in Fedora 24, but I encountered the following error.

    Error: Transaction check error:
    file /etc/ld.so.conf.d/nvidia-lib64.conf from install of nvidia-driver-cuda-libs-2:375.26-4.fc24.x86_64 conflicts with file from package xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-340xx-libs-1:340.98-1.fc24.x86_64

    I have nvidia graphics card and I am not sure if I should overwrite the existing files and configurations. How do I solve these issues? Please advice! Thank you!
