Hybrid is a multi platform (Linux/Mac OS X/Windows) Qt based frontend for a bunch of other tools which can convert nearly every input to x265/x264/Xvid/VP8 + ac3/ogg/mp3/aac/flac inside an mp4/m2ts/mkv/webm container, a Blu-ray or an AVCHD structure.

I could not even get the above version of this program to launch to test it.Staying with reliable Handbrake as the 1st choice others I use occasionally are Avidemux Shanaencoder Clever FFmpeg MKVToolnix Pazera & others depending on what specific purpose is required.

I recently (today) needed to remove comet streaks, jaggies, grain, and a generally poor capture into something watchable. I could've used Avisynth as that is more native to me, however, Hybrid is so much easier. The editing possibilities are endless and Selur was extremely responsive with assistance. I highly recommend you use it and learn it. I'm going to be moving away from hand scripting in Synth and use Hybrid going forth, I don't have time to spend hours on my scripts only to find I left out a dot or a dash somewhere. The homepage is go there and donate to keep this excellent software in development. Selur deserves it.
