HandBrake 1.4.0 - Rip DVDs and convert videos on the M1 Mac

If you want to copy a DVD to the hard drive under macOS on the Apple Mac, there are various apps and tools for this. We last dedicated ourselves to an app that is repeatedly recommended for this in 2017: HandBrake. Recently, however, the name came up again in the comments of a post on the topic Convert and compress videos on Mac on. So I took a look at what was currently going on with the free Mac app. Lo and behold: the update was released a few days ago HandBrake 1.4.0, which, in addition to further improvements, brings compatibility with the M1 chip and the corresponding Mac models.

The fact that the new HandBrake version is designed for M1 chips in newer Mac models is not the only innovation.

What are the best HandBrake settings in version 1.4.0?

In the article from 2017 linked at the beginning, I showed you which settings are the best if you want to save a high-quality DVD on your Mac hard drive with a small amount of data. In the meantime, however, I haven't had the opportunity to check whether this information is up-to-date. But if you are currently working with HandBrake and have a few recommendations for the 2020 or even the current 2021 edition, please leave a comment. At that time I discussed the format (MP4), the codec (264), the frame rate and video quality, the preset (Slow or Very Slow) as well as Tune (film) and Level (3,1). What do you think of it in HandBrake 1.4.0?
