With Windows Media Encoder you will obtain professional results, and both audio and video quality is very high.
For instance, you can create audio ranging from voice-only content to multichannel, and you can encode video from low data rate screen capture to HD quality (1080i/1080p). Compressed videos can be fine-tuned by using the new encoding modes.
Windows Media Encoder’s advanced features are also available on older operating systems, like Windows XP and Windows 2000, so you don’t need to upgrade to the latest OS to create high-quality video content.
Some other advanced options of Windows Media Encoder that you may be interested in are its new codecs that improve output quality, the two new encoding modes (constant-bit-rate and variable-bit-rate) that allow you to adjust fine-tune settings, language support for specifying the language of your content, support for sourcing from additional file formats, and frame-level seeking.
Windows Media Encoder is also available in a x64 edition, which includes the features of the 32-bit edition and some extra updates (the VC-1 video codec and the DRM Protect Utility).
Windows Media Encoder has not been developed anymore since 2011 and it may be outdated for most users.
Nevertheless, this powerful utility is an excellent choice if you are still using Windows XP and you want to create high-quality video and audio contents.
