  1. Good morning

    For those who know the subject please explain what is the real difference between these two programs.

    I know Vidcoder uses HandBrake as its encoding engine.

    but, both use FFmpeg or libav ?

    Someone could explain this point specifically.

    Thank you all very much for your answers.

    Vidcoder tends to be less troublesome when cropping or resizing, especially with Anamorphic content. Other than that they should have access to the same x264/x265 and everything else.

    Vidcoder interface is a little more straight forward - I was able to teach a friend who is not particularly computer literate how to use it, but had no success with Handbrake. I agree with comments by KarMa

  4. As I understand it Vidcoder is an alternate GUI for Handbrake's encoding engine. Handbrake's encoding engine uses libav. libav uses libx264, libx265, and many other open source codecs.

    Also note that libav forked off of ffmpeg in 2011. I believe Handbrake used ffmpeg before that date (and probably for a while afterward, until libav matured).

    To use a single program for this whole process,

    -Index a video (DVD , Bluray , Etc)
    -create a script in Avisynth, with Filters , etc
    -Encode in x265 and x264 ,etc
    -Convert Audio
    -Mux Video & audio in .mkv or mp4, etc,

    All in one process without having to use several other programs in the process.

    The idea is to be able to do everything in one program.

    From my personal experience I found these programs:

    1 - Megui (NVenc, CUDA not supported)
    2 - StaxRip (it's very good but has a lot of bugs)
    3 - Hybrid ( The interface is not friendly and has bugs)

    Then there are many other programs that work integrally in the process but do not have many configuration options, very limited.

    The program that is more complete is Staxrip, the bad thing that has many bugs, things that can be tolerated.

    Does anyone else know any other option ?
