StaxRip is a powerful video/audio encoding GUI for Windows. It executes and controls console apps such as x265, mkvmerge, ffmpeg, etc. and uses scripting based frame servers, AviSynth+ and VapourSynth, for video processing. Each project can also be extended by various events and settings. StaxRip is no One-Click Encoder! Requires .NET.

Version history / Release notes / Changelog / What's New


StaxRip v2.36.0

💡 The last two releases had to be rushed to prevent users creating broken Dolby Vision encodes. Because of that many related issues are fixed and improved with this release. When it comes to Dolby Vision and Cropping I highly recommend reading this updated guide, especially when you think the crop is not correct:
Encoding Dolby Vision with StaxRip using x265, NVEncC, QSVEncC, VCEEncC
