Ideal video converter - Convert pretty much any input file to pretty much anything else. For those who care about quality it supports H.264 and MKV output. Output can cater for whatever device you want.

It also supports batch encoding.

I've been using this for a while. I mainly use it for converting DVD to MP4 files so I can watch them on my iPod on the train.

No avi or xvid support means no good for anyone who wants to use this through a DVD player. I think my TV supports mkv but never used it as the file sizes always seem much larger.

I'd recommend downloading one of the "nightly builds", has options of encoding from X seconds to X seconds.

AVI is an ugly container class which is outdated. Most other apps have xvid support by ripping off ffmpeg/libavcodec. See Why did you drop avi? and Why did you drop xvid?. Yes, MKV files are larger, because they are better quality. For a comparison of modern video formats see MKV and H.264.

Ugly or not it is still probably most widely used to download and support for USB or playing via DVD's so I felt worth giving a heads up.
I'm sure mkv is great if you have a PC that can handle it, and a way of watching it.

Ditto - I find this to be a great app!

I've noticed that some sensible streams (checked two torrent trackers) are using H.264 and MKV files.

The quality difference is instantly noticable. People could just burn stuff to DVD from these sources, if they didn't already have the capability to stream them which would maintain the quailty.

That said, my five year old desktop with a dual core pentium processor (I paid about £60 for it at the time) plays both these file types witout any problems.

Thanks OP! Heat added!

can burn subtitles from dvds into the video, handy when soft ones not supported.
didn't really notice a difference in quality using the different codecs though if comparing same file sizes.
cant remember which but the h264 and ffmpeg or something (been a while since i used as you may be able to tell) non h264 is much faster encode though
