VidCoder 10.13 / 11.1 Beta


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. VidCoder can rip DVDs but does not defeat the CSS encryption found in most commercial DVDs.

You’ll need the .NET 6 Desktop Runtime. If you don’t have it, VidCoder will prompt you to download and install it. The Portable version is self-contained and does not require any .NET Runtime to be installed.

You do not need to install HandBrake for VidCoder to work.

  • Multi-threaded
  • MP4, MKV containers
  • Completely integrated encoding pipeline: everything is in one process and no huge intermediate temporary files

VidCoder 10.13 / 10.12 changelog:

  • Fix crash when QSV decoding is enabled
  • Updated to HandBrake 1.8.1
  • Added {sourcepath} as an option for post-encoding actions.
  • Allowed watching the same folders with different presets.
  • Added status toast updates for new versions.
  • Fixed crash when encountering a database version that is too high.
  • Fixed crash when a deleted log file is selected in the Log window.
  • Fixed an issue where scan process crashes would hang the bulk scan operation.
  • Renamed two-pass to multi-pass
  • Added some protection to avoid accidentally running cleanup on a new encoding process if the previous one failed.
  • Remove "standard error" redirect behavior for worker processes.
  • Updated code to "rescue" the window placement. It's now activated if it's on the screen by less than 10 pixels.
  • Added option to stop showing the encode progress in the Window title. This allows working around a Windows bug where the Alt-Tab switcher flickers on window title updates.
