This masterpiece has almost every possible plugin and filter you could possibly ask for in any converter without even knowing s#it about video coding. Truly brilliant! Takes the minimum time it should to get the hang of it, easy to use and a fine work of art backed by the engineering it requires. QTGMC De-interlacer, sharpener, EZDenoiser, and just anything you name and Hybrid has it all up its sleeve.

no error, no crash, no lag, no freeze with an old 3rd generation Intel i7 processor (win8.1 x64)! There is nothing more I can ask for :)

Thank you Developer.

Please Mr. Selur let us decide if we use the VBV or not. It is Democracy out there.Many of us do not use hardware player. Anyway thanks to the developer.

Not the prettiest GUI but, frankly, there's a -lot- of choices and if you didn't want so many choices you probably wouldn't be using this particular app.

Two things I like about this app (that stand out) and they're pretty simple but show some careful thought about how people might be using the app:

1. Fairly complete audio and video codec info is displayed when a file is set as input. (I sometimes encounter mp4 files that have audio that plays on my computer but, because it is missing some critical—or has an erroneous—piece of audio metadata like a bitrate of ".01", the audio won't play on my Roku; Hybrid shows this issue so I know I need to address it.)

2. Either or both audio/video streams may be set to "pass-through" which saves time encoding. (Using the above example, I passthrough the video and re-encode the audio to yield a file which plays on all my devices.)

The above items are simple things but Handbrake, Wondershare Video Converter, even QuickTime Pro just can't get the job done in this manner. So ignore my nit-picking. Thank you to the developer!

Mar 17, 2015 Version: 2015.2.8.1 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: -/10 Functionality: -/10 Value for money: -/10 Overall: 5/10



Try using 2015.1.7.1 version and, if u want to update it, just copy the encoder archives including the audio and video ones into the 2015.2.8.1 version folder but do not copy the 2015.2.8.1 version *.exe GUI,, if that does not work,, then try to install the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack latest version,, it works 4 me because i had the same error than u, sorry 4 my english mate...

Feb 4, 2015 Version: Hybrid_2015.1.29.1 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: -/10 Functionality: -/10 Value for money: -/10 Overall: 5/10



Sorry of my bad English!
Hybrid have a bug, since a long time ago...
Pause option!
When you pause the encoding process, "ex. 80%" it won't resume from "80%", but from begining again (0%)

Won't run after installation. Appilcation error DivX265.exe - Application Error, "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application." I have the most current Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable installed and DivX265.

awesome tool! i use this for years... ;)

and plz don´t compare it to tools like media coder - those are not comparable



Oct 15, 2014 Version: 2014.10.13.1 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



The newest version ( 2014.10.13.1) of Hybrid is unable to call the avisynth tools, and it reports as "XY called, but wasn't initialized" in a little window message.


Oct 14, 2014 Version: 2014.10.13.1 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 4/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 6/10



The x264 and x265 encoding of Mediacoder (with the exactly same options) is two times faster than Hybrid. How is it possible? The transcoding is 2X faster with Mediacoder. Something must be do, it is a huge disadvantage for Hybrid.

I don't want to hurt anybody, especially the author,
but what is the point to mark the version as Released date?



Aug 6, 2014 Version: 2014.08.06 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Hybrid is a very powerfull piece of software, even if is not so easy to navigate between the tons of options. The "average Joe" is for sure lost in face of Hybrid, but the complexity is not a true reason for a bad rating. This program is better and better from version to version and the author constantly increase the abilities of the converter. I just hope he will continue his work.
And also, how can someone rating "Value for money" 1, or 3, when the program IS completely FREE? Are they illiterates?! :)

"disabling qaac support since 'Apple Application Support' is not installed"

Really !?
I mean really !?!? I double checked Quick Time is present with all its components, so there is something else missing in your tool for example...



Oct 3, 2013 Version: 2013.10.03 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 3/10 Overall: 4/10



Folks say that Hybrid is good, but I haven't been able to try it to find out.

Have tried a number of versions (installed & portable), 2013.7.3.1 being the last, but the program never starts up. You can see the process starting using task manager and then it just dies without anything happening. Tried searching a bit for an answer, but haven't found one.

So, for now, I'll have to stick to xmedia recode for x264 encodes



Jul 17, 2013 Version: 2013.7.3.1 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10



I just recently found this software. I had specific needs that needed to be met and this one did it. The developer even added a feature that I requested (superb).
No crashes or errors for me with the latest version.



Jun 28, 2013 Version: rev 2013.06.16.1 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Every time you start this tool you get this
GetTool Versions got an empty output for bdsup2sub++
The cause might be that bdsup2sub++ could not be found,...
Please redo this with debug output enabled and tell the author.
Finished initialization,...

This has been on all versions that I have tested!



Jun 4, 2013 Version: 2013.06.03 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 6/10 Value for money: 5/10 Overall: 3/10



Simply the best tool I have ever used for converting the media files. Not only software educates you with all the different options, but also provides you endless customization opportunity. Agreed, this is not a tool for novice computer users to use. But someone who knows exactly what he wants to do should feel better already with this. I was stuck with MeGUI before this and adding jobs and converting files was pain. Used to take around a minute for adding every single file for encoding. This one makes it so much easier than it auto processes everything and applies settings to multiple files with breeze. It analyzes multiple files, applies settings as per your settings and creates jobs. Thanks a lot for creating the best software, makes encoding so much easier and fun. Keep up the good work! :)


Apr 15, 2013 Version: 2013.04.09 (April 09, 2013) OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



This program is not the easiest to navigate throught when using advanced options, but it does give lots of tips about settings, so I gave it an 8. It produces very good results and seems to be quicker than some other tools I've used using same settings (Avidemux & Xmedia Recode) and even from the looks of it, produces better quality. It has many options available and I like that, although I think you need some knowledge about certain settings.

It would be nice if this program would get better editing tools, like trimming/cutting videos, it's very basic now and it took me a while before I found the setting to enable cutting/trimming videos. Some other programs like Xmedia Recode have better/easier editing features.

I did not notice bugs when I did my encoding, felt stable as any other program out there.
I used a wiki page to set certain settings for x264 encoding, and on that page they said to turn off vbv-bufsize for better quality, but I can't do that within hybrid, so I kept it at what hybrid set it to. I used this wiki page: http://mewiki.project357.com/wiki/X264_Settings

Thank you to Selur for making this program and I hope he will continue with development.

It is full with bugs...again. It's the most unstable software what I've ever seen!

Don't use it!



Mar 31, 2013 Version: 1234 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 2/10



This is the best converter i have encountered so far. Very satisfactory.


Mar 8, 2013 Version: 2013.02.16.0 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 9/10 Overall: 9/10



Previous version (2013.02.15) worked for me,but latest (2013.02.16) crashes almost immediately after starting.Going back to v2013.02.15 .


Feb 18, 2013 Version: 2013.02.16 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 8/10 Overall: 8/10



It is full of bugs.
I've never seen such a software which had so many bugs and errors.
Don't use it!



Jan 28, 2013 Version: 1.2.3.4 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10



at first I install the tool and figure right away what a great tool is but though that was gonna be hard to learn how to use it but i was wrong as I have already mess with all kind of encoding tools before is so easy>really nice tool thanks!


Dec 29, 2012 Version: 2012.11.23 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



This tool makes me stick to it only, without prompting me the need to use another Encoding tool.
Hybrid is perfect and very easy to use. The Author, Selur is very attentive with it's development and keeps Hybrid on the brim of success. I value this tool with 100% of everything.



Sep 12, 2012 Version: 2012.09.09 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Confirmed full dunctinallity and stability under MAC OS X 10.8,10.7.4,10.6.8
The Interface:
The interface can be a little scarry at first but once you understand that everything is in fact in the "right" place you should have no trouble.

This is an alternative to:
rebox.NET(only goes one way MKV-MP4 but not back)-Windows
GOTsent(same functionallity as Rebox.NET)
AVIDEMUX(MultiAVCHD was crashing with the AVIDEMUX output)-Windows/Mac/Linux
PopornConverter(Refused to Convert AAC to AC3 Audio again for miltiAVHCD)-Windows

Highlights/Uses
1. Convert The now common MKV to MP4 withouth touching the Video Or Audio(all in one tool for PS3 Playback)
2. Allows you to load any number of files AT ONCE for processing, automation and efficency is amazing.Prepare Files for AVCHD disk authoring. Allowing you to store multiple Movies On One Disc. 20 720P or even more standard def Movies on one 25GB Bluray disc. Playable on any Blu-ray Player.
Great for kids and saving your original discs and your money. I personally put all my nephew's(4YO) movies into one disc. The only other thing besides this tool that you would need to do this is multiAVCHD (windows only unfortunately) to author the Menus but that is it.

Other Notes:
Converting Audio in a MKV Or MP4 Container to AVCHD compliant.(Storage Speed became the bottleneck~100MB/s yes Megabytes. 120 episodes which the program allowed me to load all at once (unlike AVIDEMUX) 25 minute episodes (mp4s) ~350MB 1280x720 H264 Video:passthough(Video Copy)+ AAC@160 to MKV container with AC3 @160,took 5-8 Seconds per episode the dropped right into MultiAVCHD then two BD-Rs. They have all been tested and there is no audio delay issues or percibable audio quality loss.

The developer has indicated it was too much of a hassle for him to compile the necessary tools for OSX so he provides a Mac OSX version that does...nothing. I guess if one wanted to pursue searching out all the tools that the app complains are missing (and the dialog box that does so is filled with complaints but provides no directions to rectify the problem) then it might be possible to make -some- use of this app. However, as it is now, it's worthless. Move along...nothing to see here.

I was intrigued by the ProRes output option and decided to test it out. Unfortunately it would error out with that output. The error would report "unable to find fields interlaced". This would happen with both interlaced and progressive sources. Probably some kind of bug. It works fine for AVC output however.......

this program have potentials , but I faced a problem . some of my MP4 and MKV files have some Audio encoded in HE-AAC and this program use ffmpeg to open the files and the result was always crash and I could not find anny option to let me tell the program use another program to open those audio .
otherwise there was no problem
