HandBrakeHave been reading about the program HandBrake for years now.  This is an open source video transcoder.  Basically it lets you convert some video format to another.  It can all so compress files sizes down.  This is what I wanted to try it.  Have been making a lot of videos as of late for the YouTube channel,  I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry.  The files sizes can get pretty big once the project is done.  So uploading them to YouTube can take a long time.

Decided to give this a try.  One project was just under one and a half gigs.   Put that file though the program.  It got the file down to one gig.  Which is not bad.  Sure it could get it lower but think the quality would drop too much.  Since the programs is open source it doesn’t cost any thing.
