Install Handbrake on Ubuntu 10.04


Handbrake is a great DVD ripper. Unfortunately the version on theHandbrake website is not working. Here is a ubuntu how to for installing Handbrake on Ubuntu 10.04.
First we need to get DVD playback enabled:
sudo aptitude install ubuntu-restricted-extras
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

Next we need to add the PPA for the Handbrake Snapshots:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-snapshots

Your system will now fetch the PPA’s key. This enables your Ubuntu system to verify that the packages in the PPA have not been interfered with since they were built.
Then do and update of the Apt repos lists:
sudo apt-get update
Next you need to install the software. Use the Ubuntu Software Center to install Handbrake. Do a search for Handbrake and install the GTK GUI.
After it installs you should have Handbrake working in Ubuntu 10.04.
Now Start Ripping!
This is a great tool for ripping data for your PS3 Media Server or your Xbox Media Server.

Yay! It works! I already had handbrake installed, but all I had to do was re-install the GUI. For some reason the Play, Add to Queue and Pause buttons were all greyed out. Handbrake seems to be the only transcoder that can handle mkv files.

Man, being a noobie, I jumped thru all the hoops, rollerskated thru the rattlesnakes and kept away from the lions and someone stole the brass ring.... Where is handbrake and how do I get it for running on Lucid 10.04???

Worked great on my 10.04 64 Ubuntu box. Link for Thunderbolt (probably for other android phones): http://www.knowyourcell.com/htc/htc-thunderbolt/thunderbolt-guides/726973/how_to_convert_videos_and_transfer_them_to_the_htc_thunderbolt.html
