Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
v1.5.4
-----
Issue 209:

2 Bugs:
1 on drag drop, numfiles was not initialised. Could countain random
number, not actual files dragged and dropped
max number of jobs was not being incremented on dragdrop.
now, if you dragdrop and the file list goes > max number of jobs, we add
50 more rows to filelist.
note: file list is initially limited to 100 jobs because of the memory
overhead of maintaining arrays of the filenames, command lines, options
settings, etc
enhancement: added hint for file list showing number of files in queue
when cursor not over a filename

Issue 211
Use of double quotes replaced by single quote. Cosmetic, done

I wanted to convert FLV files to DVD mpeg. After trying SUPER (which didn't work), I tried WinFF, and it worked perfectly.

I love the interface--simple, easy to follow, and technically arranged. The options are great. And, it's easy to follow along the progress in FFmpeg. It just makes sense, and worked wonderfully.

Thank you, a great tool.

I had trouble converting flv to avi.
I tried exporting as avi from Flash CS3 (lost audio).
I tried Riva (error messages).
I looked at Super (too complicated).

WinFF worked like a charm!

This is one excellent frontend. It just works! Even on strangely non standard files!!!! Its one of my essential video conversion programs.

Before I found this,I was struggling with either BS shareware/programs that were too picky about the input file.

Mediacoder is next after this(slightly more complex but even more powerful)

A simple easy tool to use that produces excellent results. I use it reduce bitrate/file size for OTA HD and SD mpeg files as well as Xvid and h264. Setting up custom presets is a breeze and is a very nice feature.

Awesome piece of kit, have only converted a couple of files with it so far and have yet to use it to the same degree as I have used SUPER, but what I've seen so far cannot be faulted, great utility

Staggeringly good FLV quality. The best I've ever had from a free tool. I just encoded a video at 384x288 at 300k. It's much better than YouTube quality (needless to say!) and better than I was getting at 320x240 at 425k with Riva.

Theinterface could do with a 'stereo' option and drag and drop would be nice. But still this is an awesome tool. Many thanks to the developer.

Excellent tool for driving ffmpeg, especially now that 2-pass support is added.

OK,
This is a phenomenal Cross-Platform application. In Windows it is an excellent substitute or replacement for SUPER, and in Linux it has no rival! The developer is helpful and accessible and listens to user input. Running on top of a good ffmpeg build almost any common conversion is possible.

This is the best frontend for ffmpeg hands down. ffmpeg is totally bad ass to begin with and having an easy to use frontend for it with batch capabilities and presets makes it even more bad ass. If you are a Linux user my opinion is that this is the only video encoder frontend/program you will need. Just make sure you compile ffmpeg to support all the restricted codecs.

If you have a multi-core processor be sure to add "-threads x" to the command line where "x" is the number of cores you have. On my E6420 at stock speed (2.13 GHz) using "-threads 2" I'm getting 50 fps encoding to h264! This is without overclocking. I can't even imagine what the speed will be like after I OC to 3.2 GHz.

This is absolutely awesome!! I've never encountered a tool that would produce such great quality in so short a time! (Believe me, I have tried most.) I agree with the previous poster, it is as good as Canopus (or HC or CCE), but lightning fast!
Although gui4ffmpeg uses ffmpeg as well, the results do not match WinFF's at all!
A 2h 24m movie (.avi-file, XViD) took less than 2 (two!) hours to convert and it looks GREAT!

Congratulations to the author for using ffmpeg as underlying app and encoder to such great avail!!
Keep up the good work!

i just downloaded and tested the latest version and all i can say i WOW!!! the gui is just a front end for ffmpeg, but whatever version of ffmpeg it's using kicks ass!!! it kicks ass in the two most important ways:

1) the quality of the encode is phenomenal. at any particular bitrate i have never seen a codec that even comes close, not even x264 (i know it's technically not a codec, but it is the co portion of that acronym) at the highest settings can touch this, not mpeg-2 at 30Mb/s can beat this codec at about 6 Mb/s, not apple's H.264, nothing!!! (i checked, it seems to be some H.264 codec i've never seen before).

2) this is the most shocking of all, it's lightning fast using a dual core E6400 i am doing the following 2 encodes simultaneously (i'm running 2 instances of winff, it's not multithreaded) and each is being performed in faster than real time:

first file, target:

1920x1080, 16:9, 6500 Kb/s, using "MPEG-4" video codec, 320 Kb/s 48000 Hz, for audio

second file, target:

1280x720, 16:9, 5000 Kb/s, using "MPEG-4" video codec, 320 Kb/s 48000 Hz, for audio

it's almost unbelievable when you consider that Procoder 2 takes about 7 hours just to do the first encode with the same settings, and no other encoder i have ever seen (if you can name it, i've tried it) can come close (Mencoder264 does the first encode at a rate of 3 fps).

just absolutely incredible, i'm uninstalling all the other encoding tools i have on my computer and from now on this is what i plan on using!!!

I just downloaded this tool and ran through a list of flash files that I had saved to see what it would do. I tried converting them to wmv and some other formats. The process took only a matter of seconds (though the flash files were only a few minutes long at most). I have a pet peeve about programs that don't allow dran-n-drop capability, as many freebies don't, but that's my only complaint. I would have given it a 9 otherwise. It can be tedious sometimes having to search manually when all I want to do is drag files. But the program is free, so I can't complain too much. Good job.
