StaxRip ist a univeral video file converter with many features. The usage will be for beginners a bit complicated. But if you spend some time you will be very happy to have it. It is for me the best program to convert different video sources (dvd/bluray movie files on harddisc) or other files to compact fullhd video files (h264/h265). The important feature is the perfect support for Intel Quicksync and Nvidia GPU encoding. Handbrake and XMedia Recode are easy to use and great, but they do not give you the best quality with GPU encoding. That is the reason why I prefer Staxrip for GPU video encoding.
You can use much more settings to reach the highest quality and best speed. Staxrip use different tools and you can update them or replace them with the lastest beta tools. That is fantastic. If your software has a wrong configuration, the program will inform you.

Review by James Pous on Feb 28, 2022 Version: 2.10 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 6/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

I'm not sure how to even use the program, after looking for guides on how to convert video files, the only thing this program gives me is errors. It converts audio just fine, just no video. trying to adjust video output, I get nowhere. if programmed worked, i'm sure it would be great, as I see it, it's overly complicated, saves none of your settings, defaults to whatever output folder. Do yourself a favor, and download handbrake, at least that one works...

Please revert bitrate calculator to version, all the rest is ok !
