Great Converter

Postby TEOL85 » 16 Mar 2011, 10:30

I reckon it's one of the best around and it's free.

My only issues are:

1) The bugs that I found which the first one was that one where cloning of vob files which puts scanlines across the screen and no AC-3 sound outputted in those vob to mp2 clones. And the second one where the sound outputs badly on YouTube HD format where YouTube now supports 256kbs in HD mode and 128kbs in SD and both in stereo and 44100khz and when you convert manually with good sound it still sounds rubbish.

2) Not enough HD formats. There is now MP4 HD the proper one which needs adding the the tabs, Divx HD, how could the most popular still support only SD in here when the real encoder now has HD mode? Xvid HD, this needs adding just as much as Divx as it's a very much liked format. Uncompressed AVI, why have HD if you don't support the very best hard drive hogging version of HD out there even if it's just for the sake of it for completing reasons?

Not much more to mention only brilliant software keep up the good work and hopefully add support for these new and classic HD formats in the proper HD tab and fix the encoding bugs listed in the future.

For people reading, don't let the bugs and lack of real HD formats put you off. There is a whole range of supported SD formats to try and it's generally better than every other free encoder out there as it doesn't put logos on your video and it converts general videos really well.
