    how to install handbrake ubuntu

    Look through these and see what you come up with. All I did was find it in the Software Centre, and installed it from there.

    then:
    sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk handbrake-cli

    while importing the video, it is not imported successfully, I think it is not supported, I changed it to another video file:

    Code:
    $ mediainfo 001.dvr

    Complete name                            : 001.dvr

    Maybe the .dvr filename is not recognised, but at least you were finally able to install Handbrake.

    By importing, do you mean it can't successfully read from the source file? If so, try another video file and see what happens. I use Handbrake to convert from DVD to mp4, and the only trouble I've had is when it tries to read a dodgy DVD.

    It's a misleading site. The link to the file is the phrase "Download: test write1.dvr" at the top of the page.

    I allow myself one stupidity per day, a pity this is my second . Now that I have seen the file it is unplayable and nonconvertible with all of the Linux-based applications at my disposal. I suspect it is either:

    1. A broken file
    2. Playable only with proprietary software
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Unless the source djsc was finalised, it will only play in the what it was recorded on. When I have to use a DVD Recorded, I record to the HDD, then burn to a DVD-RW so I can re-use the disc at a later date.
