MeGUI is an application whose main feature is DVD ripping, but which can perform other transcoding tasks as well.

A frontend for a variety of tools, it also contains utilities which optimize the conversion process.

It can be considered as one of the most comprehensive ISO MPEG-4 solutions.

The formats supported by MeGUI are the following: MPEG-4 ASP (XviD), MPEG-4 AVC (x264), AAC, MP2, MP3, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, AC3 audio and various common containers (MP4, MKV, AVI, M2TS).

This software tool also supports the open source wavelet based Snow codec.

The encoders featured by MeGUI are mencoder, x264.exe, BeSweet & Nero AAC encoder and mp4box, for muxing.

Since v1.2828 MeGUI needs Windows 7 or later, last version for Windows XP is v1.2525 and last version for Windows Vista is v1.2808 - all of them available for download. It also requires the .NET framework.

MeGUI is easy to work with and any standard user will learn how to handle it in no time.

There are many how to use guides for this conversion tool online and the application is being constantly updated.

The guides show you how to convert various multimedia formats to H.264 using MeGUI, how to convert DVD to XviD, how to prepare a DVD for editing in a NLE or how to reencode and shrink HD anime with MeGUI.

The latest versions of MeGUI feature changes such as:

- Avoid false positive mismatch frames encoded vs frames source for final statistics.
- Updated MediaInfo x64 library to the 24.03 release.
- Used the same naming schemes for all indexers.
- Applied correctly the drc information from LSMASH-Works & FFMS2 as preferred audio source decoder.
- Added time modification 23 <-> 24 for audio conversion.
- Allowed UTF8 encoding format as Reader/Writer for avisynth input files.

Full list of changes.

If you want to use MeGUI, you need to have installed to your computer Microsoft .NET Framework, AVISynth and DGIndex.

Once you have all these tools on your computer, you can enjoy the powerful features of MeGUI and perform transcoding.

- In order to use latest version of MeGUI (1.2944 - core file), copy and paste MeGUI.exe into MeGUI 1.2944's folder. So, download both archives and overwrite MeGUI's executable file.

Excellent GUI for transcoding needs, very powerful, lots of features, you can tweak (almost?) any of eg. x264's, Xvid's options, AviSynth-based encoding and filtering gives room as much as your imagination can come up with, and it uses the best tools in business!

A bit of a learning curve, but well worth it when you can have the latest bells and whistles to transform your whole media collection into pretty much any kind of usage scenario there is.

Updated regularly, and it keeps track of all the needed tools so you don't have to worry about old versions or incompatible tools.

I've used this for years, and can't remember a single problem in all that time.
