VidCoder rips and allows video trans-coding of DVD/Blu-ray discs. Running on the HandBrake encoding engine, it can contain MP4 and MKV video files and encode H.264 with x264, one of the best video codecs.
This is an open-source DVD/Blu-ray ripping and video transcoding application for Windows. It uses HandBrake as its encoding engine. It can rip DVDs but does not defeat the CSS encryption found in most commercial DVDs.
It uses the HandBrake library and it has a richer user interface compared to the official Handbrake GUI.
You don’t need to install HandBrake in order to use VidCoder.
The first advantage offered by this application is the intuitive, simple interface that allows you to choose between the drag and drop option and the browse button for adding files.
Further easiness of use is ensured by the batch processing functionality; you can encode multiple video files at the same time.
It comes with a set of advanced features. It is multi-threaded, it performs H.264 encoding using x264, the best video encoder in the world, it has decomb, detelecine, and deinterlaces filters, it can pause or resume encoding and it creates small encoded preview clips.
Advanced users have the possibility of setting video parameters as they wish (video codec, framerate, quality, etc.)
