VidCoder is a video conversion program which uses Handbrake as its encoding engine. VidCoder offers the same strengths of Handbrake, plus some options which have been discarded by the Handbrake team. Output can be either MP4 or MKV file formats, using either H264 or H265 video codecs. A variety of audio codecs are available, including AAC, AC3, MP3, Flac and Vorbis.
VidCoder is free to use.
