NEW VERSION 2016.08.27.1

Hybrid is a multi platform (Linux/Mac OS X/Windows) Qt based frontend for a bunch of other tools which can convert nearly every input to x265/x264/Xvid/VP8 + ac3/ogg/mp3/aac/flac inside an mp4/m2ts/mkv/webm container, a Blu-ray or an AVCHD structure.

Not the prettiest GUI but, frankly, there's a -lot- of choices and if you didn't want so many choices you probably wouldn't be using this particular app.

Two things I like about this app (that stand out) and they're pretty simple but show some careful thought about how people might be using the app:

1. Fairly complete audio and video codec info is displayed when a file is set as input. (I sometimes encounter mp4 files that have audio that plays on my computer but, because it is missing some critical—or has an erroneous—piece of audio metadata like a bitrate of ".01", the audio won't play on my Roku; Hybrid shows this issue so I know I need to address it.)

2. Either or both audio/video streams may be set to "pass-through" which saves time encoding. (Using the above example, I passthrough the video and re-encode the audio to yield a file which plays on all my devices.)

The above items are simple things but Handbrake, Wondershare Video Converter, even QuickTime Pro just can't get the job done in this manner. So ignore my nit-picking. Thank you to the developer!

Try using 2015.1.7.1 version and, if u want to update it, just copy the encoder archives including the audio and video ones into the 2015.2.8.1 version folder but do not copy the 2015.2.8.1 version *.exe GUI,, if that does not work,, then try to install the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack latest version,, it works 4 me because i had the same error than u, sorry 4 my english mate...
