VidCoder is an opensource video converter that basically uses HandBrake as encoding engine. Users who are having difficulty in using HandBrake can give VidCoder a shot since it is technically the same tool but with a new refreshed user interface.
VidCoder features include multi-threading support, MP4 and MKV containers, H.264, MPEG-4, and Therora video, AAC, MP3, Vorbis, and AC3 passthrough audio, Decomb, detelecine, deinterlance filters, ability to create small encoded preview clips, and pause/resume encoding.
On the main interface, select the Source, set video, audio, and subtitle options, choose the destination, and check the encoding settings. Once done, hit Add to Queue button. Users can add as many videos as they want in the queue. When all is ready, hit Encode.
The developer plans to add more presents, formats, angles, and 2-pass encoding in the next version. It requires .NET Framework 4.0 to run and works on Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server, Windows Vista, Windows 2008 Server, and Windows 7.
