There are many free and open source video conversion tools you can find online. They are excellent alternatives to expensive and restricted video processors, and the best part is that anyone can expand their functionality with a bit of know-how. A good example is HBBatchBeast, which is a graphical user interface for HandBrake and FFmpeg. It lets you enjoy their powerful functionality in a comfortable manner. You can convert your video files and perform other operations on the fly, without going through a complicated setup procedure.

HBBatchBeast is available completely free of charge, for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. It comes in a ZIP archive, and it works straight out of the box, so you don't have to go through a setup process. However, it should be fairly obvious that you need to have HandBrake, FFmpeg or both installed on your computer.

The software's functionality is straightforward and easy to master. It lets you perform several operations, on the same user interface, but on different tabs. Obviously, the conversion options are the most sought-after, and you can find them on the second tab. HBBatchBeast lets you make use of HandBrake and FFmpeg to convert your files and make a wide range of fine adjustments. Furthermore, thanks to its multi-instance batch conversion capabilities, you can even use both HandBrake and FFmpeg at the same time.

Besides its on-demand conversion feature, the software has other tools you will find useful. For example, you can set it to monitor a folder and to automatically convert the files you store in it. You can also check the integrity of your files and attempt to repair them if the program finds any errors. Another useful feature is the possibility of switching between saved settings at a moment's notice, so you can have HBBatchBeast convert one batch of videos to a certain format and convert another to a different format the very next second.

HBBatchBeast gives you a better handle on HandBrake and FFmpeg, to help you convert your videos in a more comfortable fashion.


You can batch convert your videos on the fly. The software can also convert videos automatically as you store them in a folder. The user interface it provides has an efficient layout and it's easy to learn.


If you set it to download videos from a Downloads folder, the software will start converting before they are done downloading.
