      HandBrake vs Wondershare UniConverter opinions
      Most users think HandBrake is a great alternative to Wondershare UniConverter.
      Has great presets and the interface makes sense, and is very functional. Seems to not over clock my cpu and hardly uses my gpu, hardly used my ram as well. I assume this could run faster if tweaked. Its slow but at least you can save some space on those videos.

      macuser707 Stopped using UniConverter a few years ago; Handbrake does almost everything. Yes; takes a small amount of tweaking but the online docs and forum will answer most questions. One more thing: Handbrake is free whereas UniConverter and all other Wondershare software, apparently, are now annual subscriptions. G'bye, Wondershare.
