Unidentified Developer (OS X Download)

We are not currently able to sign the HandBrake downloads. Since our download is not code signed, OSX will flag the application as from an unidentified developer. To work around this, please read their Open an app from an unidentified developer help article.

For more detailed information about the Gatekeeper feature in OSX, please see the About Gatekeeper article.

Verify your Download with Checksums

Please take note that HandBrake.fr is the only official place where HandBrake can be downloaded from.
There are many unofficial mirrors of HandBrake and while most of them offer legit versions of HandBrake, there are a few that don't.

As such, if you decide to download from an unofficial mirror, we highly recommend that you verify that you have an official build of HandBrake. You can do this by checking the checksum against the list of checksums for the official versions.

Please see the Checksums page.
