PSA: Kirara >>> Handbrake
I spent some time searching for alternatives to handbrake and I found Kirara.
The main benefit is that you can direct stream copy the video. You cannot do this in Handbrake.
You can also use Nero AAC for audio, while handbrake makes you use inferior audio encoders.
Kirara appears just as fast and just as stable so far.
