Awful tool MeGUI is much easier to use than this. The encoder is good but x264 is much better than this tool, plus the ridiculous $500 tag which is totally absurd. Please don't use this Encoder. There are better tools available which use x264 as base and are much better, ex- Xmedia Recode, MeGUI, StaxRip, RipBot etc. Note that this tool does not use x264, it uses the Mainconcept Reference Encoder. Honestly x264 is much better implementation of H.264/AVC specifications.
High-quality and high-speed video (H.264) codec.
Ability to process VOB files.
Easy to use GUI.
Poor cooperation with DirectShow decoders that are already installed in the system. In most cases this results in incorrect detection of parameters of the source (frame count, frame rate, pixel aspect ratio, display aspect ratio, interlacing properties etc) which in turn results in or video deformation or video/audio desync. In other cases this results in crashes on program startup or job file opening.
What worse, inability to specify custom target pixel aspect ratio, custom display aspect ratio, custom target frame rate etc so the user won't be able to work round prior-mentioned problems. (To be honest: the GUI allows specifying whatever output framerate which will be shown in the OSD of media players during playback, but the actual framerate and video/audio desync remains untouched.)
Various GUI minor bugs.
Job queue locks the GUI whenever there is an active job in the queue, which effectively prevents user from editing and configuring the remaining jobs.
