I got bored while dvd::rip works nice to rip DVDs I wanted to give handbrake a try on Ubuntu.

after looking around found how to add it with a GUI

http://swik.net/Ubuntu/Only+Ubuntu/Howto+setup+Handbrake+including+GUI+from+svn+in+Ub untu/caeou

There is some errors or it may because Handbrake has been updated since it was posted.

you will also need libgstreamer0.10-dev and libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0-dev. Also libgtkhtml3.14-dev. These were the ones I was missing
Plus had to restart a few times cuse the "make" downloads some tar files and they timed out a few times.

when it gets to the actual build part just do this

svn co svn://svn.handbrake.fr/HandBrake/trunk HandBrake

cd HandBrake

make

cd Handbrake/gtk

./autogen.sh

make

sudo make install

It takes awhile to build but you end up with a nice clean GUI for Handbrake.

agreed, it may not be as 'fun'... but it does resolve dependencies, and update with with you system. :)
