addition of uget and handbrake by default

Post by JR86 » Fri May 04, 2018 12:30 am

I would like to see the addition of the video file conversion program; Handbrake, and the download manager; Uget, by default.

They are both at the top of their game. We still have torrent apps..but does anyone even use these anymore? In the past I used them heavily, and Usenet clients..then it was Kodi..but I think download managers are where it is at these days.

And whilst we are at it, who wants over-sized, compressed video files, when you can easily have them decompressed at an eight of their original size by reformatting with Handbrake! Saves buying that 4-8TB hard drive and gains more space than you thought possible. These are everyday tools and are more default in my toolkit than many of the programs currently installed out-of-the-box.

Cheers, JR86

Hello JR86 and Welcome to the Linux Mint Forums.

The Correct place to post your Ideas for Mint is in the Linux mint community page found here https://community.linuxmint.com/idea/search
You will have to sign up on that page to be able to post your Idea there. The reason is that most of the Development team does not look here at the forums very often and your suggestion is likely not to be notice by those in control of what is to be included in mint .iso files. They do however monitor the community Idea pages.
So you may want to repost there.
Good luck.

Uget is a brilliant download manager.
