NOTE: To First time users and all,in the Help tab from main window you will find website>forum that has step by step instructions to using MeGUI,as well you can post questions there,Also in the help section is a wiki user guide plus a place where you can request to have functions added to the MeGUI.
This is a phenomenal H.264/AVC conversion program, It is geared toward people with some knowledge of video and file types but the learning curve is well worth it. Don't know how to write AviSynth scripts? Use the AVS Script Creator in the tools menu and you won't have to, also a d2V file creator to load and demux your MPEG 1&2 files(for ripping dvd's). It encodes to both XVid and x264 with profiles you can import for specific uses, you can Automate multipass encoding and also have a choice of AAC Audio Encoders (Nero Digital Audio has to be Downloaded separately). It updates the core components as they become available so no re-installing new versions all the time. The x264 quality is excellent and encoding speed is quite fast (60-80 fps on Intel Core Duo 2.0Ghz), A/V Sync is spot on. Note to first time users: You have to manually define all the program paths in the Tools->Settings->Program Paths menu before the program will work, Most of the .exe files are in the MeGUI folder and once set are good to go.
