I regularly recommend Handbrake to PowerDirector users when they have issues with audio being out of sync, changing frame rates, importing files with certain codecs, and other reasons. Close to a month ago I recommended Handbrake to a user and when they went to the Handbrake site they received the message "This site can’t be reached. handbrake.fr unexpectedly closed the connection." The site has had that message since then and I have not heard anything about this on any other forum or website. So I have a few questions for my PD Peeps:

Does anyone know what's going on with Handbrake?

What free video transcoder would you recommend now that we are unable to download Handbrake?

Hi,
A quick look using https://www.isitdownrightnow.com shows the last time handbrake was checked as up was 22 Oct 20:47 Pacific Time.
There have been 5 checks since then (latest 23rd Oct 16:46) all reporting the server/site is down.

There is no explanation given.

Using Spiceworks Traceroute results in :
"Did not reach handbrake.fr after 1m30s
We could not reach the destination host in the allotted time permitted.
This could be caused by the host not accepting TCP packets on port 80."

So can't help further on that one!

Cheers

Thank you for your reply. I just checked and the site is back up again! I wasn't checking it daily or anything so that's great news.
