This is a must have for all copyright freaks out there. Compare the encoder with DivX, only this one is not encoding in Mpeg4 or H264 but in RealMedia keeping original frame size intact. The two pass vbr encoder will re-encode your AVI, DVD(vob) rips, Mpeg1 and Apple movies to smooth running RealMedia files that can be stored on standard CD-R“s or DVD-R“s. Quality/Size ratio is exellent because of higher bitrate settings. Even your DV-camera footage or TV-broadcast recordings look great after being compressed by this encoder. Imagin you have a TV(avi) recording in 576 x 432 frame size and two hours in length. Re-encoded with 800 Kbps the end-result is stunning and it will fit on a single 700 Mbyte CD-R. Re-encode DVD (720 x 576) Panavision movies to the incredible resized format of 800 x 450 in one go with the use of Virtualdub“s frame-server. Encoding time is also faster then Mpeg4 encoders. This program is small and is looking great on your XP desktop. New military skin. Full screen Playback is restricted by an encrypted video signature. This stealth video encoder creates a stamp on every recording and is invisible for standard window sized playback. Great for advertisment and local distribution !
