I don't know about this version but the one I installed perhaps a year ago would phone home on every start, no option to disable that, and when blocking that call with firewall the application wouldn't start.
I'm not willing to give this relatively big package another try. When I encounter such phone issues I just drop the software, be it freeware. Maybe I'm wrong to do so, but no time to spare for testing.
"3" score is plain neutral. I was bound for a "2". Yet I know this app has a good reputation from what I've read here & there...

I had a play with this over the Weekend. Not to do any Encoding, but to see exactly what this App is offering... I can see the VISUAL pull to this App by the screener above. It looks Exciting & gives the Impression you will be a Pro in no time... Well to all the Guys who have "never" worked with Audio/Video before. This App is "over the Top" for you..!! .. Way too many configs for a learner.
You need to know about Aspect Ratios, Bitrates, kbsec, Framerates, A/v sync, & lots more factors... There are However, More (basic) Apps provided by this Crew. @http://www.mediacoderhq.com/editions.html

[EDIT]- Came upon this yesterday. Made it portable. Tested it, & Does what it says. An Easy-Peasy "Click n Go" App...... @Noobs, a HTML "readme" file (Incl)...
Ok for Kids, "L" plates, Or just a Quick Re-Code.. Has No configs at UI stage....

Sooo unnecessarily complicated. Has nag screens for paid product of one trys to convert oce a certain number of vids, which stops the process until user intervention. Many easier and just-as good freebies.

Gotta agree with all the low* reviews on this one.
Purely "As a guide" for L plated Transcoders..
Today: 20/08/2013. XMedia Recode.
Remuxed 77x 28min episodes Losslessly (.flv - .mp4). 18mins
I can only give Mcoder 2*. Personal Prefs.
I understand the complaints about the browser-based interface and the complexity of the GUI, but the sheer functionality of this freeware utility aggregator trumps all of that for me. Five stars!
