This is the best x264 GUI made. It's is not exactly for newcomers, but the use presets for various devices will be helpful. Quality of encodes is excellent. Various plugin filters can be loaded so you can tweak your settings to your heart content. You can also include your filters, giving you infinite customization options. Easy to use sliders give fine control over quality, and you can also directly edit in CLI parameters to your liking. Everyone wanting to advance their skills in encoding should use this tool. For noobs I recommend XMediaRecode, a very simple tool which is not only powerful but easy to use, with large number of Device profiles.

Tip: Download MeGUI from here or Sourceforge page. In settings change update servers to development from stable to keep getting new updates. Don't worry these updates are very stable. Never experienced a glitch myself.

!!!! I will soon post a beginner guide to MeGUI very soon !!!!
Bing MeGUI Wiki page for a comprehensive coverage of this tool

Obviously the commenter below doesn't remember every post about dgdecode errors with avisytnh. Yes, there's a chance you will have the same programs installed on your system somewhere as the Megui 'tools' folder. The developers want to minimuze the complaints & confusion and they try by making sure you're using a compatibile version of the tool required.

There's an option to turn off file backup when needed in the settings - whats so hard about that?? And all apps get deleted when/if you uninstall.

IMO, this is truly the best GUI for encoding videos - period

This used to be a nifty tool, but it has worsen a lot. Apparently every tool used by MeGUI has to reside in the MeGUI\tools folder - even avisynth plugins, which means that I have to install a lot of stuff twice! You should stick back to the old fashion way where you can set up the path for each application and then use them as they are.

What happened? The new version has lots of blockiness in the final output file..I don't know if its the new presets or what, but even at the highest settings I get blocks galore...Going back to previous version

MeGUI is an excellent transcoder to produce quality x264 videos, an it has practically every X264 setting you can imagine to tweak for exceptional quality to size video, and it has something left out that you want to set, an additional command line function. I like its built-in updater that updates to the latest version, codecs, and whatnot. I gave it a 9 for functionality because it takes some learning and practice to master it. Definitely not for a beginner but if you have some background and knowledge on encoding/transcoding videos, you will be very happy with this gem of an app.

So far, I am glad to find this program to deal with the H264 codec. I've tried many different other encoding programs but overall most has overstated the functionality and value of the products. I found the Videohelp website by chance and I was glad that I found it since I found a bundle of solution which were so scarcely and incomplete on the web if not from Videohelp. The instruction may need more info and how-to on the audio portion. Beside that I have no complaints anyway. Thank you.

All in all, a fantastic program. I rated the ease of use as a seven, as it does require a bit of video encoding knowledge. However, it takes little time to master the program. I recently tried to encode a .mp4 file from a DVD to be played on my PSP with PSPVideo9. Although that program works nicely as well, the resulting video had serious audio/video sync issues. I then tried to encode the video using Nero Recode and it choked on the movie while trying to import it. I determined that there must have been an issue with the DVD rip, but rather than re-ripping I decided to use MeGui. I didn't use it initially because in my experience it takes more time than the above said programs to encode. However, the quality of the output produced by MeGui is exceptional. MeGui did not have any problems processing my problematic video. It produced a great looking video with none of the out-of-sync issues produced by PSPVideo9. MeGui Rocks!

MeGUI....Me Likey!!!!
This is a phenomenal H.264/AVC conversion program, It is geared toward people with some knowledge of video and file types but the learning curve is well worth it. Don't know how to write AviSynth scripts? Use the AVS Script Creator in the tools menu and you won't have to, also a d2V file creator to load and demux your MPEG 1&2 files. It encodes to both XVid and x264 with profiles you can import for specific uses, you can Automate multipass encoding and also have a choice of AAC Audio Encoders (Nero Digital Audio has to be Downloaded separately). It updates the core components as they become available so no re-installing new versions all the time. The x264 quality is excellent and encoding speed is quite fast (60-80 fps on Intel Core Duo 2.0Ghz), A/V Sync is spot on. Note to first time users: You have to manually define all the program paths in the Tools->Settings->Program Paths menu before the program will work, Most of the .exe files are in the MeGUI folder and once set are good to go.

Looks very easy to use, has a batch system. Great value for your money because it's free. I have all the required software (avisynth, .net framework, dgdecode.dll?) and it doesn't accept any avs I give it.

Good application.

It include a nice bitrate calculator, d2v file creator, avisynth file creator, and the very usefull "One Click Mode"

Audio is being processed by besweet,xvid/snow/asp by mencoder.exe, x264 by mencoder or X264.exe, and i suggest to use x264.exe

You can configure (and memorize) varius profile both for audio settings and for video.

Recommend.
