For processing single files, this is a fantastic transcoder. Load your favourite preset, make your tweaks (if any) and you're all set. Love it.

HOWEVER, the latest version (3.2.1.2) is troublesome for me as I can no longer scrub in neither forward nor reverse directions on my Panasonic ST50 series TV. I discovered the profile settings were the same between it and my previous installation which was v3.2.0.4. I have since downgraded back to v3.2.0.4 and I'll be sticking with it unless there's a major functionality improvement in future versions. I suspect the issue is with the updated FFMPEG which was used - either bad commands are being issued to FFMPEG or the updated FFMPEG itself is buggy.

For me, the major improvement I would like to see is a more powerful batch conversion set up as the current batch processing doesn't allow for manipulating subtitles and video frame rates for all selected video clips. This makes it a painful task if you have 200 clips that you might like to render the subtitles into, especially if there's only one subtitle track for it to work on with each clip. Even if it saved the job queue to an XML which can then be manually edited using Notepad and some Find and Replace trickery would be sufficient.

I've asked the author about this so hopefully there will be something in a future release which would be highly beneficial for me - provided that the encoding issue described above is fixed.

I upgraded my old XmediaRecode from version 2.3.1.3 to version 3.2.0.4 and can confirm that Yamaneko in post 23 are correct.


The program, which i think is one of the best, does not support DVB subs anymore, so i have gone back to the (very) old version 2.3.1.3 again.

I hope that the programdeveloper can fix this problem.


I know almost nothing about programming, but i can't stop wondering why upgrades, which gives more possibilities and greater quality, often leads to something
not working.

Hello, since XMediaRecode3196 I have a bug still present in 3203

When I chose to change for example Bitrate in MP3 file,

If I have more than one element, I have to select for each the Bitrate (same behaviour for others settings).
When I select multiple file he forget the settings I put.

When I go back to XMediaRecode3194 there is no bug, it remember my selection when I select mutliple files

Can you fix it ?

It seems that XMedia Recode do not support correctly DVB-subtitles anymore. Trying to convert Topfield .rec files to MP4 and XMedia Recode not render DVB subtitles at all or it pick up some of text here and there and timing is wrong then.

I'm trying to find out when this has happened and I'll test older versions of XMedia Recode.

well, perhaps the problem I was experiencing was not necessarily the program,

I had been using an older version of MediaInfo 7.34, I deliberately stayed with this older version because of additional software that has been loaded into the install exe that can be added(basically junk)on versions later than this version, I tried updating twice with newer versions and finally went to a very recent upgrade (7.67) and low & behold this version of MediaInfo displays the framerate as *constant*..***note that two the older versions did not***.

Curious, is it MediaInfo or XMedia?........has my curiosity peaked as no other mkv file I've worked on displays any framerate as being variable.

That aside.....this is STILL a great little program

I use an older version of Xmedia Recode, 2.3.1.3, and have no problems like this.

There must be a tutorial or guide somewhere on this site

This is a great video editing tool, I usually make use of Handbrake for all of my re-encoding of most any x264 video whether it be 1080p, 720p or just SD 480p, that program is rock solid, but one of the processes that Handbrake cannot do is to upscale the resolution of any project I am working on.

I came across XMedia Recode, it is a versatile program that does let me upscale what I need to, and it also has filters that I find useful, most being the Brightness/contrast feature, very handy.

If there one issue that I have come across it is the programs constant practice to encode video in a *variable* framerate mode. The program just refuses to encode in a constant mode. This is annoying as I don't have any use for a file that has a variable framerate mode, when was the last time you came across a Bluray movie that didn't use a constant 23.976 framerate mode? Everything I do is in a x264 mode and I require that constant mode. Even if selecting *original* the program stills re-encodes that the framerate to variable.

If the individual who created this program can alter this little quirk the program would be *Golden*.


nice little program.

Since 3.1.4.9, all subsequent versions cannot convert AC3 5.1 to
(Dolby Pro Logic II (2 channel, stereo).

All the talking comes out of the left speaker. Handbrake handles
the audio perfectly, but has no video copy (passthru) option.

The Delay relative to video problem of 1mn 5s or 65531 ms that I've been mentioning in my recent posts appears to have been rectified in version 3.1.8.7. Much thanks to the author for fixing this.

Fixed problem with faac by uninstall, deleting 'xmedia recode' folder from appdata and Program File(x86). Installed 3.1.8.7, reset all my settings, and all is well.

Audio->faac produces 'aac ER Parametric' which my Blu-Ray player can't decode.
Also, Audio->AAC works fine, but the next time you run the program, it's set
back to faac...going back to 3.1.8.6

The only way I can convert AC3 5.1 to stereo is to select Custom Channel Mapping.
Map channel 1 to 1, and channel 2 to 2. Seems to work.

A great tool, but it REALLY needs to have the ability to correct or re-sync audio. Also to combine video streams with separate audio streams (if this can be done already I didn't figured out how).

NOTE: the following delay relative to video problem does NOT occur
when using Xmedia Recode 3.1.7.4

Try this:

1. Take an mkv that contains:
a. A constant frame rate h264 video stream
b. An AC3 audio stream, 48Khz sample rate
c. NO audio delay as reported by MediaInfo
d. Chapters and subtitles

2. Load into Xmedia Recode 3.1.8.6
a. Set video mode to copy
b. Set audio mode to convert, AC3, normalize
c. Add subtitle

3. Add job and encode

4. Check encode with MediaInfo
a. Delay relative to video: 1mn 5s or 65531 ms

Excuse the typo in my last post. I meant to say that for the test file in the MediaInfo report, there is NO "delay relative to video" in the encode with 3.1.7.4 - but there IS a delay of 65 seconds in the encode with 3.1.8.3. Again this is for the same test file. I have tested other MKVs with the same result.

The MKV with the delay plays OK as an MKV - but converting to something else (such as an M2TS file) introduces the delay.

When encoding an MKV video with 3.1.8.3, I'm consistently getting a display relative to video of 65 seconds as reported by MediaInfo. Version 3.1.7.4 does NOT have this problem.

The following MediaInfo reports are for the same MKV video. Note there is no display in the 3.7.1.4 report.

3.1.8.3 doesn't convert AC3 5.1 to Stereo correctly. Most of the sound is on the left speaker with no center sound (3.1.4.9 works fine on the same file).
