UPDATE (26 Nov 2022): Handbrake 1.5.1 builds here are now with FFmpeg 5.x and require FFmpeg 5.x to run, so ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg5 must also be added! For builds with/requiring FFmpeg 4.4 use ppa:savoury1/multimedia instead.

*** Install ***

Handbrake here is built with FFmpeg 5.x so do this for successful install:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg5
