VidCoder helps to transode your unencrypted DVDs and Blu-ray movies to other formats, including MP4 and MKV files, using H.264 or Theora (with AAC, MP3, Vorbis, AC3 audio encoding and AC3/DTS passthrough).

Using the Handbreak encoding engine, this GUI makes the process of transcoding DVDs and Blu-ray movies a very simple act, with encoding presets and support for batch conversion.

Users can select which chapters they wish to transcoder/convert, as well as the audio and subtitle track (Blu-ray subtitles are currently not supported).

VidCoder doesn't support encrypted DVDs and Blu-ray movies by itself.


Supported File Formats:

Input Files: Blu-ray, DVD
Output Files: H.264, MKV, MP4

OS Compatibility:

Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8

Revision History:

Version 5.0 Beta
  • Release Date: Jan 14, 2019
  • Download(s):
    • Overhauled log system
      • Each scan and encode has its own separate log, and general app messages are put into the General log.
      • Logs for past scan and encode events are visible on the Log window.
      • Added button to upload the log to Pastebin and copy a link to it.
      • Added option to copy logs to a custom directory.
      • Removed in-memory log copy which should reduce VidCoder memory consumption.
      • Note that log functionality will be reduced if worker process encoding is turned off, due to limitations in how we get log messages from the HandBrake core.
    • Fixed Foreign Audio Search choice not appearing when it's not brought in by a Picker.
    • Changed "total" count for audio and subtitle tracks in summary to always reflect the source track count and not count duplicated output tracks.
