VidCoder 1.5.21 beta

Updated: 15 Apr 2014 | Freeware | 8MB | Downloads: 16070

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- DVD Decrypter (Free, requires copying to the hard drive before encoding, no longer updated)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 1.5.21 beta:

- Fixed issues with preset upgrades and presets erroneously getting marked as modified.

Finally I have found what I have spent about 2 months looking for.

An encoder that will :-

1. Read Vob files with AC3 audio
2. Will Batch encode multiple files at once (with out having to set each up one by one!)
3. Has AC3 pass through
4. Dose not mess up the Image size or aspect.
5. Give amazing results
6. It simple to use and easy to tweak.

Thank you to the vid coder team, you have made me very happy. Keep up the good work. and remember if it ain't broken don't try and fix it!
