This software could be great. Unfortunately, it's so far out of date with the tools that it uses that it's becoming more and more redundant by the day.

I tested the software with upgraded versions of all of the tools. The only one that will work is x264.exe. All others will cause problems with the program.

It doesn't support DTS-TrueHD, or MA. MediaInfo is so out of date that it often won't even detect audio steams at all.

The low overall score is due to the fact that it is so far out of date. If you are using it on media that is not taking advantage of the latest advancements in audio, video, subtitling and so on this product works just fine.

I use this program to convert mkv files to blu-ray disk structure. I like it because of the high quality video and ability to extract high definition audio untouched, yes DTS HD in all the channel formats. It runs well on my I7-4770 processor in Windows 7 x64 professional.
The only thing that I would like the program to do is support hardware acceleration that many of the commercial programs do.
A great program!

Still a great program, I use it to put Blurays to DVDs for the kids to use. If I need menus or chapters I feed the output to MultiAVCHD (which is more advanced but on my computer less stable)

I'd like to see more settings for quality, among other things "1-Pass-Insanely-fast-I-just-want-to-check-if-this-works"-Mode. (Yes, the output would be poor and not fit to put on media, but just to see if chapters and stuff like subs come out ok). Why not add standard x264 presets (+avchd and bluray) for quality and tuning) (film, animation, grain, etc).

Also, adding audio track is lacking.

But all in all, easy to use program that doesn't try to do things it can't handle.

I had error converting subtitle once, turned out tsmuxer choked on the sub as it had a couple of empty lines in the file. Tsmuxer gave no proper/understandable error code unfortunately (i tried it in CMD window to make sure it wasn't AVCHDcoder that had issues) so it was hard to track down what was wrong. After running the sub through Subtitle Edit and removing the blank lines it all worked great.

I know that I too have a 64-bit system that wont run past either the audio or video encoding portions and ran the test an 64-bit would fail while the 32-bit passed. Yet it still wont go past either audio or video encodes.

Voting rated for using it under Windows 7 64bit only!
Obviously there are some bugs that needs to be fixed for us who has Windows 7 64bit, because i can now discover that i am at least not the only one who experience problems.
When it begins to exstract the video, then after just 30 seconds it stops and i am told that the extraction failed, with out an error code.
I also tried with the 64bit tools for Windows 7, but even though i am told in the test that it works, then it still fails with extracting the video.

It's a great idea, and I'd imagine it would have been a brilliant application but it doesn't work. Error code 1401, so I removed all codecs as instructed but this made no change. I installed another instance on Windows (dual boot) and I still get error code 1401 on a fresh install. I also tried it on another PC but still get error code 1401. I've wasted hours of my time trying to make this work; the idea was to save time. If you want my opinion don't bother.

Hello.. This software is extremely easy and useful.. Unfortunatelly, it doesn't support "TrueHD" and "LPCM" Audio.. This means, it is not good enough.. I think we need an update.. I'm sorry to say this "such easy mouth", i'm not the one who make this useful software but as a user, it's my duty to say somethings.. With AVCHDCoder, i'm converting my Remux Files into Blu-Ray and burning onto Single Layer BD.. I've got a few (as a matter of fact; more than a few:)Remux with "TrueHD" and "LPCM" Audio and cannot create Blu-ray.. Not all of those titles have DTS-HD MA Sound.. Therefore AVCHDCoder must do something about "TrueHD" and "LPCM" aound.. I tried many Softwares for this problem but all i had is "failure".. AVCHDCoder is the only solution for us..
I hope somebody (who won't missunderstand me) will here me and try to solve our problem..
Thank You..

If you have a BD50 or MKV and want it shrinked to AVCHD-DVD or BD25 this is the perfect tool to do all the Work with only a couple of clicks. Unfortunately that is all it can. Like Adobe Encore it forces you to transcode any of your media even if simple demuxing -> muxing would do the job. So if your video have to be transcoded everything is fine. If it doesn't it's only a waste of time and quality. In that last case tsmuxer or multiavchd do a better job even if they aren't updated very often.

Nice program. It does blu-ray 50gb to 25gb movie only and fills
the disc to 99% capacity. The quality is the best I have seen for this
type of program. The forces subtitles are very important for some movies
and in this program works great. Also this program retains the chapter points
also a must have for all movies. I have not experienced any sync problems yet.
Great program. I look forward to future versions.

For some strange reason with version 11.01.07, i can not get it to create BD25 or BD50 sized outputs. When selecting these 2 settings it keeps creating AVCHD outputs of about 4.1GB.
With previously released versions i did not have this problem with, they worked like a charm.

Great programing. I have been waiting for a program like this for over a year.
Avchd coder is the best thing I have seen for doing blu ray 50gb to bd-r 25gb.
So far l have done 4 movies and the quality is awsome.
There is many options for compressing the audio and the subtitles work great.
Their is not much room for improvement the only thing may be better speed for
Encoding. The quality is well worth the wait. Thanks for posting such a great program.

I just installed this last night and did not get a chance to test the software yet.

I wanted to comment on the EXCELLENT installation and testing procedures (to validate your PC's ability to convert video) included with this software.

This package includes the Avisynth, Ffdshow and Haali Media Splitter for 32 or 64 bit OS's. I had the 32 bit versions of these software packages already installed on my PC but not the 64 bit versions.

Just follow the HELP installation procedures and the software testing to validate your PC's configuration.

So even if you do not use this software for converting video, use it to verify the correct codecs are installed and working! I am not aware of any other software that is offers these installation and TESTING options.

Great software, really easy to use.
One thing I want to note, pretty much every freeware Blu-ray/HD-DVD encoder uses the exact same program x264.exe to do the really hard work, encoding. So comparing speed of one product vs another is pointless, if you found a program that encodes in 4 hours what it takes this program 24 hours to do on the high setting that means that the new program you love so much is probably producing garbage, quality wise, in x264 quality is configurable with options and the ones that take longer almost always produce better quality,some programs just integrate really crappy low quality profiles for the sake of speed.

I've done some considerable encoding using the more configurable and much harder to use encoder MeGUI, which is great when you want absolute control over your encode, but I wanted something simple that I could spend 2 mins on and press go for less important stuff I want to back up to disc but don't want to spend a lot of my own time on.

This software is it, the profile they use for highest quality is pretty darn close to the high quality profile I use in MeGUI, i can just load up a bunch of files on my encoding machine and then come back when it's done and burn the iso's.

Very Happy with it, it could use a few more configurable options for x264, based on profiles to take into account personal tastes, but as an easy to use blu-ray to BD5/BD9 converter nothing matches this.

I've used BDRB for over a year, and I recently ran into a problem converting a 25fps, 1080i mkv to AVCHD. Although I was able to fix the fps with TSMUXER, BDRB output looked 1/2 size on my PS3. AVCHDCoder allowed me to change output to 1080P and solved the problem. Even with the fastest decode, the image quality was very decent! I also like that this program has a manual explaining the options and settings. Although it's pretty intuitive for BDRB, I can't seem to find a comprehensive list of options and settings in the ini files for tweaking BDRB. Minor issue overall. Both programs are excellent for what they do and much appreciation for the effort from both authors! AVCHDCoder is a valuable addition to my tools library!

Being able to convert 25 fps to 23.976 in the program would be nice, since the tools are all there. Not criticizing, maybe a future 'feature' :-)

I think I have tried all apps proposed in the bluray rip & encode section of this site and avchd is the only one I'll keep using. The software is easy to use, it provides a complete solution from ripping to encoding to the right format & size. I was previously using a commercial software from xilisoft but the end result was somehow disappointing, I was always getting some video lag with fast moving images. AVCHD is slower, it took me 8 hours to build a 8Gb MKV file (2h20m movie) while it took me the same amount of time to encode 3 to 4 bluray with the stuff from xilisoft. I need to mention that I've been playing a game for an hour on the same computer while encoding the movie, I guess it would have been faster without playing that game.

I'm using a QuadCore Q6600 cpu (no overclocking), 6Gb of RAM, 8800GTX video card running under Vista 64 bits. Encoding priority was set to normal, my four cores were in use.

The author has put great effort into providing detailed instructions on configuration. New users should READ them. (!) Specifically, users are advised *NOT* to install any codec packs. The program provides links to tested versions of ffdshow, Haali, and AviSynth. How hard is that? There is even a handy configuration testing tool included to determine whether one's system can encode H.264, VC-1 and WMVHD.

Okay, the good:

1)It works, and is slightly more tolerant than BDRB. I say that because it encoded a damaged rip that BDRB rejected. Of course I did the job over anyway from the beginning, but thought I'd test it at the time.
2)It accepts a wide variety of file types/formats.
3) Free.

The not-so-good:

1) The download is pretty big. Partly this is a function of providing capability for encoding various file types, so more tools are required.
2) In my testing, chapter points were slightly off for a Blu-Ray encode (not the damaged one tested previously). Just a second or two, and perhaps a niggling point.
3) Workflow is a little cumbersome, but this is a matter of personal taste, and no doubt users get accustomed to it without much trouble.

Anyone who puts so much effort into useful freeware programs deserves thanks (and donations). So one hesitates to criticize too sharply. Anyway, it's a pretty good tool.

@below

On my dual core it only takes up to 24 hours*. More than 5 days means your system is not properly configured. Or your source device is slow (ripping via network is much slower for example)
*AMD Athlon X2 2.4GHz, 2GB Ram, output 1920x1080@23.976p and a movielength of 100-110 minutes.

This software is the easiest to use and best software for converting commercial blu-ray discs to DVD, DVD-DL, Blu-Ray25gb. It won't copy the menus but it will convert and blu-ray by copying the main movie file and compressing it to fit on the output source you select. It will even create an .iso image of the blu-ray formatted output. It even helps in selecting the output size by showing you the bit rate and a quality rating. Very easy to use too. This software is nothing short of amazing.
