Editors' Review

MediaCoder provides all the tools needed to convert audio and video clips, but it also adds a level of complexity that audiophiles will love. Casual users, however, will be confused and should steer clear.

The program's interface was helpful but also baffling. While it walks you through the setup process, it does so online, which was a bit odd and certainly different. Nevertheless, it coordinated the program setup in a few easy steps. We were able to convert our audio and video files into corresponding formats like MP3, MP4, AMR, WAV, and a few others. MediaCoder works with a single button, though the conversion took several minutes longer than we expected for a 6-minute file. Regardless, the results contained all the data of the original, with the media specifications we requested. The program offers a ton of special features that are great for the audio obsessive but a bit overwhelming for the casual user just looking to convert some files. Its head-spinning array of options are a dream for serious AV lovers and include everything from adjustable bit rates to picture and sound quality settings, and all with descriptions heavy on the jargon and technical terms,--just how they like it. Those seeking a simple, hassle-free converter should look elsewhere, but for users looking to customize files, MediaCoder is perfect.

MediaCoder is freeware.

April 23, 2012  |  By privatejohn

 |  Version: MediaCoder 0.8.1.5185

Pros

-Converts MOST Of Media Files Excellently

Cons

-Advertisement
-Nag Screen
-Bugs And Hangs

Summary

It Maybe A 4.5 / 5 If This Isn't A Nagware / Adware. But Since It Has A Bug PLUS Nagging Everytime It Converts 10 Videos, I Gave A 3 Stars.

"Works well"

March 21, 2012  |  By shenkshovel

 |  Version: MediaCoder 0.8.1.5185

Pros

Fast transcoding of video files
Fairly straightforward to use

Cons

Sometimes 'hangs' at the last few frames of a video file and takes awhile to finish the job (typically showing 5 seconds remaining).

Summary

The website makes it clear that the installation file includes 3rd party software (open candy) and when installing you have the option to "not install" open candy. In other words "watch the screen and read the text".

Excellent free software that handles everything I've tried it with.
