VidCoder: Alternative HandBrake GUI for Windows

VidCoder is an alternative GUI for HandBrake on Windows.

As far as the encoding goes, it's full-featured: It's got all audio, video and container formats, filters, advanced x264 options, subtitles and chapters.

However it goes beyond the standard HandBrake GUI in some areas. I've been able to call directly into the HandBrake core libraries, rather than wrap the CLI as the current Windows client does. The result is I get instant static previews of the source material, just like in the Mac version. The preview instantly reflects changes in resolution, pixel aspect ratio and cropping. Other advantages include the ability to pause and resume an encode and the removal of those pesky console window popups at the start of every job.

Beyond the tighter integration to the core libraries, I've overhauled the entire UI, including the workflow and preset system.

You'll need .NET Framework 4 (only the Client Profile is neccessary).

I'd appreciate any feedback. I'll be checking this thread and taking feature requests or bug reports. You can post them to the CodePlex site as well.
