    It's been quite some time since I could get Handbrake to work. I get a msg about VLC and another poster told me to install it to the root of applications. I did that and Handbrake still doesn't recognize it as being there.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Make sure you launch the VLC application once, to tell OSX that it is safe to run, then try Handbrake again....

    I had the same problem the other month. Message about 32/64 bit compatibility, even though I had the correct software. Re downloading and installing both Handbrake and VLC fixed it.
