Install handbrake video converter on Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin

If you are using Ubuntu 12.04 and would like to install the video converter tool "handbrake", simply follow these instructions:

  1. REMOVE ALL existing handbrake repositories:
    # sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:whatever/ppa
    ["whatever/ppa" needs to be replaces with the handbrake repositor(y/ies) you have installed]
  2. After you have removed all handbrake repositories, update:
    # sudo apt-get update
  3. Now add the handbrake snapshots repository:
    # sudo apt-add-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-snapshots
  4. Update again:
    # sudo apt-get update
  5. Install handbrake:
    # sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk
That should be all, enjoy.
