NO LONGER DEVELOPED
FreeEnc is a libavcodec based encoder. This encoder takes AVISynth input(.avs) and outputs MPEG2 like QuEnc, but the main difference is that every parameter is tweakable, plus it comes with the optimized parameters of MencodeMe, which are known to produce great quality. Compatible with QuEnc command-line options.

I have used this bundled with DIKO and it is very impressive if a little choosy about audio.For converting from 23 fps to 25 fps (NTSC to PAL)it is stunning. Every other conversion I have tried causes flicker but using Freenc (bundled with DIKO)gave me smooth playback-zero flicker.

Excelent tool, mainly for low and very low bitrates (but not only for that). In the low bitrates tests i did, provided better quality than TMPGEnc and it was smaller in MBs. If you convert your movies to VCDs and SVCDs, you should try this encoder.

I always have difficulty scoring a program. I used FreeEnc 0.50 not as a stand-alone but I used it in the AVI2DVD program ... I tried few times on different AVI files to be sure that it is the program and not my files ... Each time FreeEnc program provided me with a DVD that Audio and Video were way out of Sync ... I would say that it was out of sync by about 4 to 6 seconds out-of-sync.

If this problem is fixed ... it is a hell of fast Encoder.

Produced tons of blocking at low bitrates - 2400. The same AVS script in CCE and the blocking was 95% cleaned up. Might be free, but it isn't good. Don't waste time with it. Qenc is much better and is also free.

Don't know why the previous poster is complaining: the tool is great, it is freeware, produces great quality, absolutely comparable to TMPGEnc or Procoder and yet easy to use, if you know a bit about bitrates and AviSynth. Look around this forum or doom9.org to learn about AviSynth. Any script I used in FreeEnc so far worked nicely and properly - and fast!! True, audio seems to have to be encoded seperately, but check out BeSweet - and for beginners esp. BeLight, new GUI for BeSweet - and you should get best results - all for free.

I downloaded this to check it out. It is small in size (the zip file was less than 1 MB). I ran a 1 minute avi (704x480) through it and it encoded 25% faster than TMPGEnc at 1 pass 7000 CBR. A quick look and it looked no different than the TMPG file. I didn't hear any audio though. Given it's cost (nothing), it is easily worth a look. I urge you to check it for yourself if you want free mpeg-2 encoding.
