"Not reliable."

April 05, 2014  |  By karkaran117

 |  Version: XMedia Recode 3.1.6.9

Pros

Easy to use, fast, and can do massive batch conversions

Cons

Simply put: the output files don't work. I converted about 700 .wav files into .flac files, and around 30-40% of them now skip, don't load properly, or don't load at all.

Summary

Not reliable, would never use again.

"Outstanding all-in-one video editor (version 3.1.7.3)"

October 05, 2013  |  By eurositi

 |  Version: XMedia Recode 3.1.6.9

Pros

- Has all the advanced filtering options that only Handbrake also has
- Optional stream copy feature (alternative to quality degrading conversion/transcoding)
- Simple Non-linear visual editor
- Easy to create chapter markers within videos
- Extensive METADATA editing for all supported container formats
- Impressive format support
- Tons of hardware specific presets (preservation & presentation)
- NO adware/malware

Cons

Not cons, but rather suggestions for further improvement:
- x64 or video card utilization to increase conversion speed
- Optional loading of presets for official metadata standards (e.g. METS, MPEG7, DublinCore)
- Video capture feature

Summary

This program is the best (free) tool for video (and sound) finalization I've come across. This is the tool you should use, when you want to optimize your video fiels for end user purposes.

Professional archivists can use it to add required metadata fields to any file format that supports metadata.

Private film collectors and everyone else can add titled chapter markers to improve quick navigation features in lengthy home videos.

The metadata editing options are extraordinary, especially because it supports MPEG4 tags as well as Matroska tags, which is VERY rare!

"Completely Useless"

September 30, 2013  |  By Taras_Bulba

 |  Version: XMedia Recode 3.1.6.9

Pros

None - does not work

Cons

Version 3.1.7.2 crashes every time I open a video file of any kind. I am using Windows XP SP3.

Summary

A Gooogle search reveals that XMedia Recode is prone to crashing for a variety of reasons. Bug fixes may stop crashes for particular errors but new bugs appear with each revision.

Updated on Oct 1, 2013

I don't believe it. I tried version 3.1.6.9 and that crashes when it opens a file.

 |  Version: XMedia Recode 3.1.4.1

Cons

None so far

Summary

One of the best converters out there

"GREAT SOFTWARE. The best in its kind. Efficient GOOD"

September 19, 2012  |  By capitanflorius

 |  Version: XMedia Recode 3.1.2.5

Pros

I confirm the favorable impression already made for previous versions.
This software performs extremely well all the functions of cutting and re-encoding of video files.
Easy to istall, this program requires a little application to understand how it works, but performs just as well the audio and video in perfect sync
EASY INSTALLATION, no virus, no spyware
Supports an impressive number of formats.
Also the speed of execution is very good (on my laptop window 7).
MULTILANGUAGE - ALL FUNCTIONS ARE FREE

Cons

No cons at all (EULA at installation is also in German.)

Summary

I RECOMMEND THIS SOFTWARE FOR ALL USERS.
Overall a good, solid freeware media converter.

"A little slow but the only way to go"

September 19, 2012  |  By jONNYDEATH

 |  Version: XMedia Recode 3.1.2.5

Pros

Incredible array of parameters for tuning.
Output quality is often equal to input with a fraction of the input file size.
VOLUME CORRECTION! A huge factor in my decision to switch because I download thousands of music videos.
It's similar to Super but superior in every way but one...

Cons

It is slow and I mean SLOW!
Super can do a 1.5gb conversion in 20 minutes. Xmedia takes 10-12 hours.

Summary

I just recoded a 1.2gb movie to 674 without a loss of quality. I have used EVERY encoder out there over the years. For quality encodings that will be saved in my collection, I use XMedia Recode and nothing else.

I have converted music videos and ended up with a conversion that is 1/8 the input size and in countless freeze frame comparisons, every bit it's equal.

Only 4 stars because it is so slow but in terms of output quality, 100 stars!

"The best software I have never user for cutting video."

January 22, 2012  |  By capitanflorius

 |  Version: XMedia Recode 3.0.6.7

Pros

In addition, this program performs the conversion from and to almost every video file type and is completely free!
At this address you can find on Youtube a great video tutorial on how it works:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVXb_UMr2aE

Cons

No CONS AT ALL

Summary

This program has many tools in practice as the most popular paid programs.
Easy to istall, this program requires a little application to understand how it works, but performs just as well the audio and video in perfect sync.
There is also a portable version of this program you can download from the manufacturer site but is written in German). However, during an automatic update of the program, I myself have been directed toward the site where I could download both the update of the program, that the portable version.
