Convert movies to MKV and MP4, as well as rip video content from DVDs and Blu-ray discs thanks to this application, which supports batch encoding
What’s new in Portable VidCoder 6.39 Beta:
- Updated HandBrake core to version to 1.4.2, to shake out any issues before stable release.
Portable VidCoder is a small software utility which helps people extract the video content from BDs and DVDs, as well as convert particular clips to MKV and MP4.
This is the portable version of VidCoder, which means you can easily copy the program files to any location on the HDD and click the EXE to run it. If you move the aforementioned files to a USB flash drive, it is possible to use this tool on any computer you can connect to.
What’s more, you should know the Windows registry is not going to be affected by Portable VidCoder, and after its removal, no leftovers will remain.
The interface encompasses a clear-cut design, consisting of a menu bar, several buttons and a panel to display the queue. Files can be added with the help of a file browser or the “drag and drop” function.
While batch conversion is incorporated, you can append subtitles to videos, in a SRT format, as well as preview an item or choose between all the built-in presets (universal, Android, Apple iPhone, Apple TV, Windows Phone 8 etc.).
You can also configure encoding settings, such as cropping the picture, adjusting the resolution, inserting and customizing video filters (detelecine, deinterlance, denoise etc.), changing frame rate, quality, video and audio codec, gain and sample rate.
Presets can be imported or exported as a XML file, while you can also save the configurations you have set up, view, copy to the Clipboard or clear logs, and select the output directory.
Taking all of this into consideration, it becomes clear that Portable VidCoder is a useful piece of software, which does not hamper your system’s resources, has a good response time and a user-friendly environment, bundled with many options.
