    Hi folks, I just noticed the following:

    HandBrake Project is out with its latest version of HandBrake (Version 0.9.4), one of the best video transcoding tools out there for Mac OS X / Windows / Linux.

    Most importantly we get 64-bit support, promising a faster transcoding time for Leopard (w/ 64-bit compatible hardware) and Snow Leopard.

    You can download HandBrake here: http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php

    Enjoy!

    GUI for Graphical User Interface and
    CLI for Command Line Interface (if I'm not mistaken) :p

    You would want the GUI. It's easier to click things to reach your goal than to enter a bunch of text commands in a terminal window.

    The support for Tiger was dropped already some time ago. Here you can still download version 0.9.1 though: http://mac.oldapps.com/handbrake.php

    It says it needs 64-bit VLC. I can't find it on VLC's website.

    Where does it exactly say that it needs VLC 64-bit?

    VLC was 64-bit with version 1.0.2, but it went back to 32-bit when they discovered too many issues with the 64-bit version of it.

    Anyhow you can get the nightly builds of the 64-bit versions here. It is not recommended though, because they are buggy. 1.0.3 32-bit should work just fine to play your videos: http://nightlies.videolan.org/

    I do not know why HandBrake would ask you to have anything like VLC 64-bit at all. The one application is a video transcoder while the other is a video player. Maybe you can elaborate on what you are trying to achieve, and where it asks you for 64-bit VLC?

    Handbrake uses VLC's libdvdcss to decrypt encrypted DVDs.

    "No more internal DVD decryption

    HandBrake will dynamically load VLC's copy of libdvdcss if you have it in your Applications folder in Mac OS X, and if you're on Linux, and you want to live on the wild side, you can install libdvdcss on your system and get the same effect."

    This version can now include subtitles (.srt files) with ease. And it works great in my iPod Touch.

    Yes, it can also add the close captioned tracks as subtitles and pass-through DTS tracks. ;-)

    Have you tried using a DVD as a source in Handbrake? Because if it doesn't find a 64-bit version of VLC in your Applications folder, it will give this error:
