The question is if VidCoder use both video cards at the same time : Intel HD Graphics 4000 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M (2 GB) when encoding a video file? The processor is used at maximum.
VidCoder use my NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M by default, for video encoding?

Not right now. The HandBrake people are working on a version that uses the video card to accelerate encoding. When that gets completed, VidCoder will pick up the improvements.

Yes, VidCoder uses only the CPU for encoding. Follow this thread to keep up with HandBrake's progress on OpenCL: https://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=26063
