    I just need to have an older version of handbrake (0.9.1) on my machine for compatibility reasons, but I want to keep my newer version as well.

    I believe you could just give the two applications different names. Like the name followed by the version number. I could be wrong but it's worth a try.

    Not sure if it will work with Handbrake but I run 2 instances of warcraft by having 2 warcraft folders and essentially 2's.

    Click on one it starts, click on the 2nd and IT starts.

    So you can probably have handbrakev1 folder, and handbrakev2 folder and you should be able to have 2 versions of handbrake. "copy paste folder" basically.

    I did this with Safari when rev 3 came out. I renamed Safari to "Safari2" and then installed the new one and called that "Safari3". They both worked side by side. I think you can do that with any app.
