Flac pass through ?

Feb 26, 2011 at 8:03 AM

Hello, thanks for this nice GUI to Handbrake. I was wondering though seeing as it's Windows only can you plugin features that are not supported by Handbrake or is the program entirely dependant on Handbrake as the underlying engine.

The reason I ask is would it be possible to implement Flac pass through for the MKV container with your program or even better Flac encoding, as the developers of Handbrake dont seem to be interested looking at their forums.

Staxrip another open source project can encode/pass-through into Flac using eAC3to but I much prefer using Handbrake, if it's is not possible I understand.

Yep, VidCoder is entirely dependent on HandBrake as the underlying engine. It exposes an API but it's only of the simple stuff like encode settings, start/stop controls and input/output file locations.
