Not sure, but I might have found something that may collaborate your problems when it comes to cropping. I tested a few movies as well, I disabled cropping because I wanted to have the files kept as close to the original as possible.
However when playing the movies afterwards, running time is reported to be 13 hours 15minutes and 20 (or 21) seconds, regardless of how long they actually are. They play fine and the quality is fine as well, but if you use VLC or Windows Media Player to
play, the search bar is much smaller. Quicktime player however seems to be able to figure out how long the runtime actually is. Not sure if it is because of cropping, but I figured it might have something to do with that.
I found the preset that I'm using under C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\VidCoder\UserPresets For XP I'm guessing Users should be replaced with "Documents and settings" and AppData is probably replaced by "Application Data",
but don't have an xp computer nearby so can't check that right now.

PS! Don't mean to hijack the thread, just thinking that since I didn't use cropping either, that it would confirm your suspicions as well, that Vidcoder is passing on unintended parameters when using customer cropping. If this is an unrelated issue I'll
create a new thread for that.
