    "Doesn't Work; wait for next update"

    January 17, 2011  |  

    Version: MediaCoder 0.7.5.4799

    Pros

    None. It installs properly but hangs on startup every time.

    Cons

    It fails to function at all. Hangs as a system tray app. Brings up a browser config window but that's as far as I get. Unintalling & reverting to 7.5.4797 works fine. Why go thru the trouble.

    Summary

    Wait till the next release; don't bother with this one.

    "converting"

    December 13, 2010  |   By p71rock

    Version: MediaCoder 0.7.5.4797

    Pros

    works ok on some of my video projects

    Cons

    does not work well with sub titled videos.. at least the ones i have done

    Summary

    the program needs a tutor for converting with sub titles, over all the program work good. I only gave it a low score because there is a high learning curve on what settings you need to use to get the desired file and its size.

    "I want soooo badly to rate this a perfect score..."

    October 4, 2010  |   By typicalhero

    Version: MediaCoder 0.7.5.4730

    Pros

    Great all in one software for my specific needs, cropping and trimming in batch mode... and video conversion.

    Cons

    Why oh why does it crash EVERY TIME I try to use it... 3 out of 5 times it will crash and give an error. It's driving me crazy because the potential is amazing.

    Summary

    For a free product... this is some pretty amazing software... but, and it's a big BUT, it crashes so very often that I wonder if the author is in way over his head with all the features. I'm giving it a 3 out of 5 because I see the potential here and maybe the problem is on my end, so if it ends up working for me, I will update the review... but normally, when something doesn't work like this and crashes all the time; a 0 out of 5 is more appropriate.

    "Looks complicated, but does exactly what is should do."

    May 31, 2010  |   By inekemichel

    Version: MediaCoder 0.7.3.4640

    Pros

    Very good result when I converted MOV to AVI. Does not use all resources, so you can continue to work. Can also rotate video's 90 degrees, handy when you made a video with your mobile. Very good help via a user forum (who told me how to rotate).

    Cons

    Looks complicated. Settings are a bit difficult to understand.

    Summary

    Tried it for the first time today, but am already very happy. I compared the results of MOV to AVI conversion of this programm with others, and this gave the best result. I had a MOV file with a woodpecker on a tree on my photo camera. Unfortunately it was rotated 90 degrees: very unhandy. This programm rotated it 90 back, so now I can finally look at it on my computer. And all this with only a little loss of quality. Other programms I checked were not able to rotate and had more quality loss.
