      Thanks for the reminder, even though I am most likely not going to use it since it requires Windows 10. But, quoting from the Handbrake documentation :

      HandBrake will still run on Windows 7 and 8.1. You will receive a notice that it is not supported when starting the app (twice) after which it will continue to run normally. Please note, some functionality may not work correctly on these OSes.

      I still use Handbrake 0.10.5 on Windows 7 / Windows 8.1, as I only need it to occasionally convert some MKV files to mp4, and for that 0.10.5 is good enough.

      Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst.

      Handbrake 1.6.0

      Release notes

      Before updating HandBrake, please make sure there are no pending encodes in the queue, and be sure to make a backup of any custom presets and app preferences you have, as they may not be compatible with newer versions.

      Windows users, please make sure to install Microsoft .NET Desktop Runtime version 6.0.x. Read carefully: you need the DESKTOP runtime. You must install .NET 6 even if you have installed .NET 7….

      General

      Added AV1 video encoding
      Added high bit depth and color depth support to various encoders and filters
      Added 4K AV1 General, QSV (Hardware), and MKV (Matroska) presets
      Added 4K HEVC General presets and updated related presets to use similar encoder settings
      Revised Web presets and renamed to Creator, Email, and Social
      Removed VP8 presets
      The VP8 video encoder is now deprecated and will be removed in a future release
      Related, the Theora encoder is long deprecated and will be removed in a future release
      Miscellaneous other preset revisions…
