  • Getting Handbrake to work under Ubuntu 10.04

First we need to get DVD playback enabled by installing libdvdcss so we can read encrypted DVD’s

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.


If HandBrake hangs/crashes while scanning a DVD source, go to "File, Preferences, Advanced" and untick use libdvdnav instead of libdvdread. Having this ticked is preferable whenever possible.
