Best VidCoder Alternative | Rip Commercial Blu-ray/DVD Disc


VidCoder is a software application designed to help you convert video files to MP4 or MKV file format, and rip DVDs and Blu-ray discs on Windows. It uses HandBrake as its encoding engine.

Main feautures of VidCoder:

MP4, MKV containers 
H.264 encoding with x264, the world's best video encoder 
Completely integrated encoding pipeline: everything is in one process and no huge intermediate temporary files 
H.265, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, VP8, Theora video 
AAC, MP3, Vorbis, AC3, FLAC audio encoding and AAC/AC3/MP3/DTS/DTS-HD passthrough 
Target bitrate, size or quality for video 
2-pass encoding 
Decomb, detelecine, deinterlace, rotate, reflect filters 
Batch encoding 
Instant source previews 
Creates small encoded preview clips 
Pause, resume encoding

For CSS encrypted DVDs and AACS or BD+ encrypted Blu-rays, VidCoder got no idea to them, you will need to download extra Blu-ray or DVD disc decrypter software to break that protection. It would be a great hassle for you to download one program to bypass the protection and another program to perform the video encoding process.
