VidCoder 1.5.23 beta

Updated: 12 Jun 2014

VidCoder is a DVD/Blu-ray ripping and video transcoding application for Windows. It uses HandBrake as its encoding engine.
Calling directly into the HandBrake library gives it a more rich UI than the official HandBrake Windows GUI.

Features of VidCoder 1.5:

- Multi-threaded
- MP4, MKV containers
- H.264 encoding with x264, the world's best video encoder
- Completely integrated encoding pipeline: everything is in one process and no huge intermediate temporary files
- MPEG-4, MPEG-2, Theora video
- AAC, MP3, Vorbis, AC3, FLAC audio encoding and AAC/AC3/MP3/DTS/DTS-HD passthrough
- Target bitrate, size or quality for video
- 2-pass encoding
- Decomb, detelecine, deinterlace filters
- Batch encoding
- Instant source previews
- Creates small encoded preview clips
- Pause, resume encoding

You do not need to install HandBrake for VidCoder to work.

• DVDs:
VidCoder can rip DVDs but does not defeat the CSS encryption found in most commercial DVDs. You've got several options to remove the encryption:
- AnyDVD ($89, removes encryption on the fly)
- Passkey for DVD ($40, removes encryption on the fly)
- MakeMKV (Free, requires copying to the hard drive before encoding)
- DVDFab DVD Copy ($50, requires copying to the hard drive before encoding)
- DVD Decrypter (Free, requires copying to the hard drive before encoding, no longer updated)

• Blu-rays:
There is Blu-ray ripping, but subtitles are not supported yet. Also, again, VidCoder does not defeat AACS or BD+ Blu-ray encryption. There are a few options for removing it:
- AnyDVD HD ($152, removes encryption on the fly)
- Passkey for Blu-ray ($60, removes encryption on the fly)
- MakeMKV (Currently free in time-limited beta, requires copying to the hard drive before encoding)
- DVDFab Blu-ray Copy ($60, requires copying to the hard drive before encoding)

Chnages in VidCoder 1.5.22:

- Added ability to burn SRT subtitles.
- Updated to HandBrake SVN 6169.
- Added checks to prevent VidCoder from running with a database version newer than it expects.
- Tooltips in the Advanced Video panel now trigger on the field labels as well as the fields themselves.
- Fixed updating preset/profile/tune/level settings on changing video encoder. This should resolve some problems with QSV encoding.
- Fixed tunes and profiles getting set to blank when switching between x264 and x265.
- Fixed commas causing chapter names to get dropped.
