Handbrake GUI 403 Forbidden

  • I installed handbrake in a docker with portainer as in the TDL youtube video. The docker actually works, I drop a video in the watch folder it converts it and puts it in the output folder with the defaults. When I put my ip:5800 into my browser I get a "403 Forbidden" . The only thing that seemed a little different with this docker was leaving the PUID and GUID at 1000:1000 instead of changing the GUID to 100 to match my default user. I read over the handbrake documentation and couldn't figure anything out. The IP listed "" isn't even close to the static IP my server is on, so I tried both. My server address:5800 is the 403 forbidden message, times out. I changed the GUID to 100 and redeployed and that didn't work either. I changed it back as evidenced below. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

  • On the main configuration page under where it says "Network Ports Configuration" you have to manually add port 5800 to both boxes. (Click "Publish a new network port"). And you should be able to leave it in "bridge" rather than "host".

  • If you are using PUID and PGID that are not an actual user and group on your system, that's a mistake.

    Host networking is the simplest approach and should be used unless there is a genuine reason not to, such as a port conflict.

    You could take the sample docker run command that is given for every image, edit it to be appropriate for your use case, paste it into a command shell, and it would probably just work.

    Have you looked at the log for the container?

  • I apologize, that solution failed to work for me as well. I have not yet found a solution to the web GUI issue, but are you able to at least connect via VNC?

    I put openmediavault.local:0 into my viewer and am able to view it that way (on port 5900). May be a useful workaround for the moment.

  • I can't get anything to work. Fortunately I was just using the docker to convert my AVI media to MP4 and the default settings on handbrake work alright. I would like to adjust it, but it is what it is.
