Simply the best GUI for x264 out there. I'm not joking, guys. Of course there is a slight learning curve, but it won't take that much of time for an standard user to learn the ways of this great GUI.

Now megui should go ahead with 3d encoding solution or atleast should add a muxer to mux 3d files with audio.

Just because Megui or any other software didn't work for you means it didn't work for everybody else. For me and for what I use it, not a single problem installing or running it.
Yes, I've seen some guys report some problems in domms9 forum, but Zathor the
developer is taking care of them.

Just because it worked for the previous reviewer doesn't mean it works for everyone else. I attempted to install the 2158 version and it will not update, same as the 2157 version, I received errors right from the start. the 2153 version works with no intstallation issues.

Don't know what the previous 2 posters are on about. Updated MeGUI using the development update server to 2157 dev a couple of days ago, and works fine for me. Used File Indexer on my DVD's, created an AVS, modified it, saved and loaded it and encoded to x264 no problem. Some nice new features in 1-click, but I prefer to do things step-by-step. Would be nice if the File Indexer could load directories (ie. VIDEO_TS folders) as it does in 1-click, but no biggie.

What the hell is this? I agree with the previous review, nothing but errors and no scripts can be loaded. I also went back to the previous version.

@headhunter03: You can't update x264 for MeGUI, because they don't have the latest version on their update server. The whole development has stopped for quite some time now.
You can go here and check manually for the latest stuff: http://megui.org/auto/?C=M;O=D

Been using for a long time. Love the software..However I can't get it to update the new x264 on dev server..Keeps telling me all files are up to date but won't update x264 past v2200

MeGUI is an essential part of my video editing and is one of the best FREE tools I've ever used. I use it to edit/encode a wide variety of my Hauppauge HDPVR recordings from DIRECTV. The video detection tool does a very good job to detect exactly which type of video you're working with especially with older interlaced types.

Highly recommended!

Agree with the latest comment, and, furthermore, with a
reachable developer who actually interacts with users in
Doom9 forum, megui thread.

To be fair, the regular updates are in the Dev strand only - the stable strand has been at v2112 for quite some time - so you only need to be updating with the Dev updates if you need the bleeding-edge functionality.

I think we should be very grateful for a tool that is under such frequent development and improvement rather than complaining about it!

As if in some fashion or trend,and constructors of such programs almost every week throw new version.Users should deal only uninstall the old version and new installations and not to work with them.I do not know what that is interesting,pointless...

The only thing I found unintuitive on this program is how you can't just add a batch of video or avs files in one go, otherwise this is probably the best x264 batch encoder now.

Go with handbrake if you want more straightforward one click solution.

Overall nice and kind of simple. Does the job. Decent layout.

However, it just keeps amazing me how bad people are at making their programs intuitive. Why not have a button to simply start the encoding? First you gotta queue it, and then figure out that you have to start a worker.

Thanks for that information, I had a look and it does actually state thjat "The sound track (if present) also fades linearly to or from silence. The fading affects only the last num_frames frames of the video". In any event I had to chop the episodes and got them as close as I could.

Apart from this, and it being sometimes a little complicated to use I love this programme, it does it's job spectacularly as far a s quality is concerned, I have no other complaints about this software other than that already mentioned.

Avisynth's "Fade" setting fades the VIDEO, NOT THE AUDIO. See http://avisynth.org/mediawiki/Fade . This is not a "bug" in MeGUI, nor a "bug" in any other program.

I have checked for updates, every module is up to date as of today and I am still unable to get the fade oput for audio to work.

It does not fade out the sound when I use the audio cutter to apply a cut to the audio of a ripped DVD made to a VTS file by MeGUI. Even after going through the stages of pointing to the original AC3 file, The Cut File and saving as the same or a new file, it makes no difference - it does not fade out at all, ever. basically it is useless to do this.

The reason I need to do this is that the programmes I am converting from my original DVD set have end credits that last up to 8 minutes, the cut and fade is completely necessary as the main audio track fades out almost, before the end credit theme begins to play. If I did the conversion like this the audio would end abruptly and sound really bad.

I am doing all this because I have a BD Player that can play MVK files with 5.1 sound from an external HDD, I am desperately attempting to make space on my shelves by encoding all my DVD series. This particular series, Band of Brothers, is the only one that has required this fading, and it does not work. The bug is obviously not fixed.

The best GUI for x264 out there. The only problem I have with this software is it is little buggy, the developers have however made it more stable than it ever was... Contains so many useful tools which work brilliantly, you can tweak a lot of settings with the GUI and if you want add more commands in the script. At first its little difficult to use but later it becomes very easy to use this tool. The AutoUpdate is excellent. Highly recommended, I use it as my default video encoding application as I am not comfortable with the x264 CLI..

This All-In-One just keeps rolling on. There seems to be an un-shakeable bug when mux'n in a negative based AC3 file (e.g. - file Delay -14.ac3) causes the mp4 to double the video timecode.

If you don't know how to use this proggy, it can be daunting at first but once you get you're feet wet you don't look back! One of all time go to tools!

I been using MeGUI to close to a year now.
It is a GUI which contains the most features compared to the other GUI.
It's like a toolbox with various tools that might come in handy some day, I wouldn't say I have gone through all the features though.

Besides that, Zathor and the other devs of MeGUI(Sharktooth and more) have been actively updating the development build with more features and bug fixes.

The devs responds promptly to the bugs reports posted in MeGUI's sourceforge bug tracker and MeGUI's doom9 forum thread.

It does take some time to learn how to make use of the various tools and the workflow of MeGUI though.

But once you learned how to use it, you can do wonders with it.:)
