library and it has a richer user interface compared to the official Handbrake GUI.
You don’t need to install HandBrake in order to use VidCoder.
The first advantage offered by this application is the intuitive, simple interface which allows you to choose between the drag and drop option and the browse button for adding files.
Further easiness of use is ensured by the batch processing functionality; you can encode multiple video files at the same time.
VidCoder comes with a set of advanced features. It is multi-threaded, it performs H.264 encoding using x264, the best video encoder in the world, it has decomb, detelecine and deinterlace filters, it can pause or resume encoding and it creates small encoded preview clips.
Advanced users have the possibility of setting video parameters as they wish (video codec, framerate, quality etc.)
The only limitations of VidCoder is not being able to break down CSS, AACS or BD+ Blu-ray encryption found on commercial discs, which means you will have to use software which removes encryption.
The latest releases of VidCoder come with significant fixes:
- Scan progress now shows up on the taskbar icon.
- Added ability to hibernate when completing an encode.
- Preview encode progress bar now correctly reflects total progress and does not reset when doing a subtitle scan or a 2-pass encode.
- Updated HandBrake core to SVN 7170.
- Fixed a bunch of things broken in the JSON API conversion
* Fixed bitrate, quality and compression picking for audio tracks.
* Fixed automatic subtitle selection.

* Fixed DXVA decoding.
* Fixed crash when batch-encoding with an audio picker.
* Fixed odd progress reporting for encodes with foreign audio search.

- Fixed crash on stable -> beta upgrade when there are no sub-directories in the stable app folder.
