the previous comment seems a bit harsh and undeserved. the software has always installed and run well on the 4 different systems i've used it on. the only thing that might be hanging up the last poster is not uninstalling a previous version first or not checking the box to install the xulrunner(a mozilla runtime package) software during installation, as it's required, and shouldn't have be left unchecked by default as it is currently.

it is extremely versatile, and can even encode h264 using nvidia cuda processing. it takes some getting used to and would not by any stretch be considered a beginner friendly tool. but the upside is that it can handle some encoding tasks that other programs fail at.

Well this app did what others would not. I had to start thinking a little about what I was going to do, though. Which isn't a problem at all. It's just going to chase some people away that don't want to think and just want to convert impossible conversions.

Anyway, the problem with the website coming up is easily remedied by re-installing the app, choosing custom install. One of the options is to install xul, and by default it is unchecked. The setup program tells you blatantly that if it is left unchecked, then it will use Firefox's xul support. If you check it, the setup program will download the files needed so that it can bypass loading up Firefox.

That's all. At first run, Firefox loads to a "You have successfully installed this app" screen, and on that web page there is a checkbox you can select that says " Do not load this webpage at startup." Check it and you will never see Firefox or IE again.

That's all.

I really like this app because of so many options available to encode to. SOME formats are picky and will not convert the way you want to. That's not the app's problem. Know the specs on your files and their conversion limitations before you go on blaming this app. Do some small conversion first before doing a large one if you don't know what I'm talking about. That's all.

Forget about it, you can't get nothing accomplished using MediaCoder. It just gives you many error messages, even worse, you get the error message and the dreaded "no file outputted" message at the end of 2-3 hours of encoding a video file and you end up with nada, nothing. Doesn't bother to warn you before you proceed with the encode that there may be problems. The error message states "Error Code: XXX Click OK to get explanation" but when you click OK, you get nothing.

Getting it to work to output DivX is a big project, it won't accept the new or recent DivX codec, it will only work with DivX 4 & 5, but not 6 and you have to get ahold of one of those version's divx.dll and place it in the MediaCoder directory and use VFW as a back end. To use aac+ you have to install Winamp 5 or copy the corresponding DLLs into MediaCoder's directory, and even then you get an error and "no file outputted" at the end with no explanation as to why. You can't do this, you can't do that. I could go on and on.

MediaCoder gives me a headache.

Doh!

It simply doesn't work as expected. The interface is overloaded, too many options but the result is null.

Could you believe that? A three minute sample of an MPEG2 DVB-S program has been converted just fine. Now I set the Time to get the full length video, wait for an hour and no installed player will play neither video nor sound from the file. Ridiculous.

I'm ditching the package and will not be recommending against this POS to any of my friends.

Hi ... when trying to download this program from the Author's website my Avira AntiVirus was blocking all kinds of TROJANs ... has anyone else experienced this. I downloaded the program BUT opted NOT to install it. Pretty Fishy! The earlier version way back a year or so was good and no TROJAN alerts. G!:)

New to me, the latest release of mediacoder (0.6.2 build 4240) added a web based "setup wizard" for a large number of "from/to" video formats.

I must admit that I felt lucky when I stumbled onto the correct settings to transcode a video, but I could never replicate the process from session-to-session even following some of the HOWTO's and became very frustrated with the software. Now the web setup wizard takes what used to be a very difficult process of configuring mediacoder into a relatively simple step-by-step process.

If you haven't tried mediacoder recently it might be worth your time give it another try. It provides excellent quality, at great speed, and is now easier to use.

Finally, a program that direct copies an MPEG2 stream into a file which can then be read (and not lose half the file) by VideoReDo. The interface confusing but after some mucking around, the program works a treat. Will use again.

THIS TOOL COULD HAVE BEATEN ALL THE SHAREWARES ONLY IF THE AUTHOR MR. STANLEY LISTEN TO THE CORRECT PERSON. FIRST STABILISE THE X264 FOR CORRECT BLUERAY AND HDDVD COMPLIANT. SECOND M2TS HEADER WITH MPEG2 AS EXISTING IS MPEG-4. ADD LOGO INSERTION AND ADD SOME FFDSHOW TYPE FILTERS DEBAND AND CORRECT THE DVD TRACK MODE SO THAT ONE CAN SELECT THE CHAPTERS PROPERLY AND ENCODE AS IT WAS PRESENT SOME ONE YEAR BACK.

I couldn't select ZERO so I had to score 1.
This is the lousiest software ever made.
It crashes continuously on XP SP2
It opens your browser at every encode task-run to display useless info,
It fails to encode into WMV
It fails to encode into MP4 with AVC/h264,
It does not have any MOV output,
The PSP output (if you manage to encode without failure) won't ever work on your PSP etc.. etc..

ZERO big time

Great program, I much prefer this to SUPER. I've been trying out tons of video programs and MediaEncoder tops them all, including programs that are more limited and charge a license fee. I've found most software from Sourceforge is quality stuff and this is no exception.

I certainly don't have a problem that it requires Firefox since I've been a Mozilla devotee from way back. I find that Internet Explorer being embedded into my operating system a bigger gripe, but to each his own.

Finally, for the few people that have trashed MediaEncoder, I'm guessing they were using one of the betas. I tried the latest development version and had problems, but the most recent stable version is rock solid. Make sure you're using a stable release before passing judgment on something that is constantly being improved.

In one word ... MediaCoder 0.6.1.4048 will not even work ... it just does not initialize. And it does not even tell why!?!? Thanks god that I kept my old 0.6.0.3220 version around. Anything passed that version DOES NOT Work. And why would a program need Internet Access to get going ... is it a Spyware or what ... So to me this program is worth big ZERO, even though is free. I hope the Author reads this and do something about.

Get to know WinFF's capabilities and leave this complicated, horrid program to its devotees.
Winff will do every thing media coder will do, and even more with user settings. (mediacoder is just a gui for ffmpeg etc).
and the need to have firefox to even make it work is ridiculous.

I'm newbie at transcoding and MediaCoder was easy to use. Sometimes would pause during operation, but found on forums that it is problem with ffmpeg - changed settings to use MEncoder and everything works smoothly.

I'm using version 060 build 3998 which comes with a preset for converting video files in to very high quality H.264 files(mp4).

Another feature that was important to me is that the author also offers it in a zip file with no installation required.

IMO, the best universal transcoder, open source or commercial. I use it exclusively mostly backup my camcorder DV video and DVDs to H.264 using x264 and Nero AAC. SUPER, also very good, is easier to use; and MeGUI is a more powerful x264 frontend. But for shear flexibility and configurability across many codecs, MediaCoder is hard to beat. The main drawbacks are that (1) the author updates the app often, which is great...but sometimes, it breaks the saved settings I have (not a big deal b/c I can just revert to the working version); and (2) it takes a bit of fiddling initially with the myriad options to get it working just right.

Windows Live OneCare pops up when I download the version from SourceForge with the warning that it detected TrojanDownloader:Win32/Zlob.

Like in 2006 with Norton (reported by another users) is it probably a false positive. Since it is not the first time would one might think that current versions should not have this problem anymore. Or is it Microsoft who missed something?

I use this tool to convert to xvid. I like the overall quality it gives. although this tool cannot do everything. i faced couple of issues.
1. it doesnt have an easy way to crop and then resize and then encode to xvid which Dr. Divx provides in a very intuitive way.
2. it doesnt encodes my 1080p wmv to Mpeg4-AVC and i dont know why.

overall for simple dvd to xvid or mpg to xvid it is very good and very fast.
