HandBrake 0.9.8 packages are now available in the linuxtech-testing repo.

As usual you will find a 'cli' and a 'gui' package, the 'cli' package contains the command line version while the 'gui' package has the GTK2 (Gnome) GUI. You can choose to install only the 'gui' or only the 'cli' or both, as you wish.

These packages replace the older HandBrake 0.9.5 packages that have been in the linuxtech repo for quite a while (and are still available in the release repo until the 0.9.8 packages are tested enough to move to the release repo).

Please let me know if they work for you or not!


Please note: HandBrake 0.9.8 requires libfribidi 0.19.x. ATrpms, EPEL, PUIAS all have the same libfribidi 0.19.2 that's also in the Linuxtech repo and that I have build HandBrake against, so the fribidi packages from any of these repos should work fine.
The only third party EL6 repo that has a much older version (from 2007!) is Repoforge (RPMforge) which is still stuck at 0.10.9. This version will quite likely cause issues or crashes to HandBrake.

U308, thanks for the feedback!

I have added a note to the first post with regards to a potential incompatibility with a dependency from RPMforge.

I see that I already have the package lifribidi 0.19.2-2 from epel (part of the jwm package).
Your version is slightly newer (-3), but from what you said that shouldn't matter.

The number after the hyphen represents the package version number (which is specific to each repo), not the upstream release version number, so it's irrelevant. The upstream release version (0.19.2) is the same for EPEL and Linuxtech (and ATrpms and PUIAS) so they are equivalent.

Is there any reason to keep version 0.9.8 in the testing repo for two months? May be because of the libfribidi depandancy?
Yesterday I have installed HandBrake 0.9.5, then upgraded to 0.9.8 successfully (SL6.3/64bit on MacBook 2.1). My test/use case is the conversion of .MTS images to MPEG-4 (m4v) for import into iMovie. Abiword 2.8.6 from PUIAS addons, which uses libribidi too, is still working

There is one reason:
https://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=25312

The handbrake devs don't seem to care about that bug given that their Linux developer (John Stebbins) never commented on it. If you don't use gstreamer-vaapi then that bug doesn't affect you.

Thank you--I've installed it, but won't have a chance to test for a couple of days--at any rate, installation was problem free.

Handbrake 0.9.9 just came out but unless someone volunteers to make the GUI code GTK 2.18 compatible we won't see it on Centos/SL6 sad.gif

True. If RH had included the last version of GTK/Gnome2 in EL6 rather than GTK 2.18 then EL6 would have been a lot more future-proof.
