Features of VidCoder
Tweak your videos
When you’re using VidCoder and tweaking your videos, you can make use of advanced tools and utilities that are featured in this program, and the excellent configuration options it presents to users. From simple settings such as cropping and video resolution to advanced ones like filters and bitrate calculators. Users can freely configure their videos with precise settings and enhancements to your specification.
You can use VidCoder to configure the coding files you already have and RIP Blu-ray discs and DVDs of your favorite movies. However, this program is not capable of breaking CSS protection, AACS, and BD + Blu-ray encryption that is placed on commercial disks, which means you have to opt for third-party softwares to remove the encryption.
Another feature that VidCoder has to offer to its user is the support of batch processing, meaning you can add multiple video files to the list and encode them simultaneously to get the job done.
To make the conversion and ripping smoother and easy to pull off, VidCoder comes with a straightforward and clean layout that grants users to add clips to the list using ‘drag and drop’ support and a built-in browse button. When it comes to ripping blu-rays and DVDs it is necessary to pick the directory that stores the information.
