Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
2.5 Beta

Made log output to the window appear drastically faster.
Added JSON encode object to the log.
Fixed audio sample rate (broken in JSON conversion).

2.4 Beta

Added CPU throttling option. This can limit the number of processor cores available to VidCoder for encoding.
Changed the way the portable version locates the database file. It will now favor using the database file beside the portable executable rather than the one in %appdata%.
Updated HandBrake core to SVN 7252, which resolves an issue where we would always scan twice before encoding.
Removed old config code and config migration code. Had reports that it was unintentionally firing for a user.
Fixed behavior for >10 picture previews.
Fixed issue where custom detelecine and denoise filters values would apply even if another option was selected.
Fixed crash on opening audio tab with certain passthrough encoders.
Fixed blank entries on the passthrough scope dropdown.

2.3 Beta

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 reported crash on encode progress update.
Fixed DXVA decoding.
Fixed crash when batch-encoding with an audio picker.
Fixed odd progress reporting for encodes with foreign audio search.
Fixed the "fast decode" checkbox not getting persisted.
Fixed the encoding preset for QSV not getting persisted.
Fixed crash on stable -> beta upgrade when there are no sub-directories in the stable app folder.

2.2 Beta

Updated HandBrake SVN to 7149, which uses the new JSON API. This changes the way every encode setting is sent to the HandBrake core, so please kick the tires on this one!

2.1 Beta

Fixed handling of old NlMeans denoise, resolving a launch crash for some users.

2.0 Beta

The Beta train continues! I've switched to a different versioning scheme: The major number increases for each stable HandBrake version and the minor number increases for each Beta release and bugfix release.

Added pickers! Pickers let you automatically choose titles, audio, subtitles and destination, as well as automatically queue or start encodes when a source is loaded. While encoding presets customize how a file is encoded, pickers control what is included in the file and where it goes. Let me know if there's anything else you'd like to see added to the Picker window.
Added a collapsible left panel to the Encoding Preset window, to switch presets quickly.
Changed window placement to open new windows dynamically in open areas rather than in preset locations.

SO GLAD I found this tool - it is exactly what I needed!

I have for years been using avi.NET for converting DVDs to DivX files, so I can watch my movies and TV shows from my hard drive, instead of having to get up and change discs all the time. A couple of factors prompted me to look for something different. I don't actually NEED the files to be DivX (or Xvid) - my WDTV media player will play a number of formats. And the new video player I just installed in my truck has a resolution limitation of 640x360, which is smaller than anything I've encoded, so anything I want to watch in my truck will have to be redone. Re-encoding a TV series with 168 episodes would have taken nearly 5 days (roughly 112 hours) with avi.NET, just for the encoding itself, not counting maybe 2 minutes per episode of prep time to set up the job queues. So I went looking for something that would do the job faster. I'll be able to do the same task with this program in only about 16 hours (the first season - 32 episodes - took 3 hours 15 minutes)! And that includes the almost zero prep time, since I can add an entire folder of files to the queue in a matter of seconds.

I have experimented with encoding episodes in a few different ways.
360p H.264 (1280kbps) with 6dB gain MP3 (chose this because it's the maximum frame size allowed by my truck)
240p H.264 (640kbps) with 6dB gain MP3 (chose this to be able to fit the entire season on a single 32GB flash drive)
480p H.264 (2304kbps) with AC3 passthrough (chose this for playback on my television - AC3 is 5.1 channels)

I chose each of the different bit rates to give me an average output quality of .31 bits/pixel*frame - not quite as high as the original MPEG-2 source, but not low enough to notice. I initially tried encoding using a small amount of Dynamic Range Compression, but without the 6dB gain, the output file was considerably quieter than the source, so I scrapped that idea. With each of the three different output settings, there was very little difference in the encoding speed - in fact, even though the bit rate is considerably higher, the 480p files encoded just a bit faster because of the audio passthrough, instead of having to convert to MP3.

FWIW, adding DRC to the audio increased the encode time considerably - for a single 26:33 source file, it took 8:47 to encode at 360p with DRC, as opposed to 6:20 to encode at 480p with AC3 passthrough - it took about 42 minutes to encode the same file using avi.NET. For a 2:22:55 movie (The Avengers), I was able to encode it in 42 minutes, as opposed to the roughly 3 hours it would take with avi.NET!

I have found this much easier to control than XMedia Recode which is also a good tool, but for people who know more than I do. I works great on my older system. I'm batch converting a lot of old files and everything works great so far. It has an "advanced" tab for those of you who know what you're doing, but for the rest of us it stays out of the way.

This is a cool software ,but the latest beta versions of vidcoder 2.1 to 2.4 .The have sample rate problems ,when dealing with audio .For example the source file has the sample rate of 41hz and when you want to encode the file to 48hz ,it won't convert to 48hz ,it will still maintain 41hz sample rate .That's the only problem I have with this software .To the program writer ,keep up the good work.

I use VidCoder for one purpose only - to place hardcoded subtitles on a given file. On that score, it meets all my expectations. And using maximum quality settings, I see no loss between the original file and its MP4 result. This tool allows me to remove a processing step to retain the best quality file possible. And, it is now my tool of choice in all subtitling operations.

Indeed, almost the perfect sollution.. almost ...

1 thing i like to see improve is the way vidcoder manages subtitles position from dvd/bluray structures!!

I mean, in handbrake you can position the language tracks in any chronological order and move a favorite language track to the top/first position and save it as default.

In that way, by opening the next dvd/bd structure the subtitles are in the exact order/position i have chosen by saved default.


If that woud be fixed/implemented in next release, vidcoder gets an 10+ from me.

I used Staxrip the last two years for encoding MKV. But I think, now Vidcoder is ready and great in functionality. It's nearly easy to use as the good old DVDshrink.

I have totally installed 5 tools, but I succeeded only with VidCoder, which was my 5th download.

This is the closest, best program I have found for BD video, similar to DVD Shrink! I either use BD from BluRay drive or use "Backup" function of Make MKV to create a folder to use as source for encoding. I love that I can control Subtitle properties, and that I can do "batch" encoding. Tweaking H.264 settings is also helpful.

I also love the preview function to see if my settings are correct. Something that
DVD Shrink lacked.

I have been encoding video into MP4 container, as that presents no problems for my video player vs. MKV, which my video player always has issues with(Sync or video probs, etc.) I still use DVD Shrink, as my video player upsamples ISO videos to 1080P, so I see little difference when encoding BD video, since I have to reduce datarate somewhat, so videoplayer can keep up. . . I am using an older Diamond MP-1000 with an external hard drive to play videos. I can play BD folders from Mane MKV backup, but I like being able to save some space upsampling MP4 video.

There is a little bit of a learning curve, but not much, if you are familiar with dealing with encoding videos. Reading one of the guides may be helpful for beginners. . .

@ roma_turok very good points but something missing in HB & VidCoder.
When I encode Blu-Rays (Mostly)always I have to redo the audio because they don't have core stripping
There are alot of free tools to do that. I'm using Clown BD. Will be nice if VidCoder developer implement eac3to and put to Audio options core stripping.

Based on Handbrake
Little better from Handbrake:
1) Have list recent locations
2) Queue list(Batch list) not floating window, its part of main interface
3) In preview window can see crop location on frame of the video
3) Slider to select IN and OUT.
5) Have option automatically rename output file, if file with same name exist.

@ xzarkad

Does your problem also exist in HandBrake?

If it doesn't, then it will be a VidCoder problem. So let RandomEngy know either via the Doom9 forum or here:

Work absolutely fine, but unfortunately the encoding speed is quite a bit slow and the support of subtitles is absolute a weakness. I loaded 4 BD roms with subtitles, for for all of them no subs were found.(I repeated this with two other conversion tools and did not encounter this problem)

I love handbrake and as Vidcoder makes use of the engine but added a few interesting features (encode size set, GUI easier/friendlier to use) this is prefect for me.
Love it, fast and THE best quality. Unbeaten!

I use Handbrake and StaxRip for most of my H.264 encoding, but VidCoder is the #1 tool for encoding DVD rips to MKV. No problems with "blurring" here. Never tried a Blu-Ray but this is great for adding DVDs to a Media Center while saving space.

I must reverse my earlier post. I loaded the Vidcoder 1.0.0 x86 as that is where the link from here took me. I had problems after the first encoding was complete and I was asked to load the 1.0.1 version. I kept getting an error message. I went back to Vidcoder website and under downloads found the 1.0.1 x64 and downloaded that. It has worked very well and I can now watch movies on the road with my Dorid X or my Toshiba Thrive.

Well it worked once. I converted a BD so I could load it on a Toshiba tablet and Droid X phone. After that I tried to convert another BD and all I get is an error screen that asks me to copy and report the problem, but nothing happens. I uninstalled and re installed the 1.0.0 version that worked and now I still get the same error screen. Wish it would work again.

I've to encode from pal and upscale my dvd to 720p, so I need to change colormatrix, transfer and colorprim.
Your tips doesn't work, video format=pal work ok, not other option.
