I use VidCoder and am very satisfied with it.
Am I wrong to guess that since it's under-the-hood power is handbrake, all the settings done in the UI have a handbrake command line counterpart?
In that case, would it be possible to provide the resulting command line, instead of launching the job?
I can well imagine using VidCoder to tweak and tune, and then use my linux box to actually launch handbrake with the command line VidCoder would provide. That would prevent my main WinPC to be hogged at 100% for hours...
Thanks for your attention
