VidCoder – New (Free) MP4 / H264 Video Converter and Ripper

Posted: October 24, 2011 in Software

For ages, I used to use StaxRip to convert my video archives. But, VidCoder seem to steal the StaxRip thunder due to several reasons;

  • I can’t practically use current version of StaxRip,
  • VidCoder is more stable,
  • User friendlier
  • Doesn’t need me to install 3 to 4 third party software (manually) for it. Everything seem to be packed in 1 package.
VidCoder is a DVD/Blu-ray ripping and video transcoding application for Windows. It uses HandBrake as its encoding engine.

Calling directly into the HandBrake library gives it a more rich UI than the official HandBrake Windows GUI.
