The incredible quality and efficiency of H.264 really brings video to life on internet or mobile phones. H.264/AVC can encode video with approximately 3 times fewer bits than comparable MPEG-2 encoders. This program offers fast encoding speed, professional quality, at the best. No advanced settings at all, just choose one encoding setting and encode to H264 video in a MP4,MKV or AVI! GUI/frontend for ffmpeg.

* Fast Speed (Same Size with Source)

For H.264, here are some general guidelines:

* For a frame size of 1920 x 1080 (full high definition), choose a data rate of 7,000-8,000 Kbps.
* For a frame size of 1280 x 720 (commonly-used high definition), choose a data rate of 5,000-6,000 Kbps.
* For a frame size of 640 x 480 (standard definition), choose a data rate of 1,000-2,000 Kbps.
* For a frame size of 320 x 240 (Internet-size content), choose a data rate of 300-500 Kbps.
* For a frame size of 176 x 144 (3G), choose a data rate of 50-60 Kbps for 10-15 fps content, or up to 150-200 Kbps for 24-30 fps content.

File Extension for H264
You may come across all kind of file extensions and still the codec can be H264:

* .avi - Yes, people use .avi for H264 videos too!
* .mp4 - Nero Recode and Quicktime use this format. Better than AVI as you can store AAC audio as well (Default).
* .mkv - Matroska container - can support many video and audio formats. Have a look here for more info.
* .h264 - This extension is not commonly used. Maybe in the future.

"guys bitch about" for good reason.

"Post #7 by Inspector.Gadget" nailed it, besides there's *honest* nice&easy tools/Gui's available E.G. handbrake, MeGui.

Those not simple enough - better watch TV then or whatever's up in Kindergarten.

Support the devs who actually provide us great stuff like x264, ffmpeg/libav, mencoder, etc.

AVOID this POS

GPL-violating crapware that uses code from the x264, ffmpeg/libav, mencoder, etc. projects without obeying the terms of their respective licenses. Font face in title bar makes it abundantly clear that this software was produced by your typical fly-by-night "developers" in much the same way as Pavtube software and a thousand other dishonorable mentions. Avoid at all costs.

A VERY easy to use program.
Every simple "button pushers" encoding dream.

Just choose input, output, a few encoding settings and hit encode.

It doesn't get any easier then this.
The perfect program if you just want to encode quick and easy.

Thumbs up to the author of this proggi.

super easy and straitforward. does not reduce to a desired file size, does not reduce according to specific frame-rate. does not have advanced features (as I guess this is not the purpose for its intended users).

It took (1 hour and 7min) to encode a (45 min) video. IMO that's pretty slow, even with 2 pass encodes I was getting slightly faster results.

encoded with the 'normal option', the video was cut to 1/2 its size. 700 to 350mb. Basically the converter cut my frame rate from about 2000fps to 1000fps and there was a slight quality sacrifice.
