Handbrake for Fedora, it's a thing

I was reading today about how the Korora spin on Fedora includes Handbrake, the popular cross-platform video transcoding/DVD-ripping utility.

But I am running regular Fedora 19, albeit with proprietary-package assistance from RPM Fusion and a few other repositories.

Still, Handbrake isn't in any of those repos.

So I searched and found HandBrake for Fedora GNU/Linux on Sourceforge.

The installation from the RPM was quick, and now I have Handbrake.

In a very much related matter, Korora looks like a great way to get Fedora with all the multimedia bits set up for you. The distribution's What's Inside page discusses what Korora adds to Fedora in a sort of roundabout way.

Aside from automatic installation of all the multimedia codecs and outside repositories, Korora includes the Jockey proprietary driver manager, which I could really use given all the trouble I've been having with my AMD APU's video component.
