Perhaps the most complete, most usable, and most user-friendly encoder GUI there is, competes with MeGUI for the best of the best

Larger than it should be / needs to be, and there are plenty of other alternatives that do not require DOT NET 3.5x and are therefore More stable, More memory efficient and run faster / better.

A decent open source app should be with self contained libraries (C / C++, etc) not reliant on and bound by a slow, buggy, trudging API.

If it was not free, it would not even be worth considering.

The definite king in conversion. Forget about the buggy MeGUI's or other RipBots or HDConvertToX's.

StaxRip beats them all on usability, clean layout, clever programming, quality of results, and it's not filled with countless bugs like all the others.

fantastic media converter front-end.
Stax knows how to make easy to use interfaces, and it's constantly getting better. Produces the best x264 and xvid encoding of all converters.

great stuff

guy or girl bellow
you crack be up any good compression software will open a 7-zip file so rule of the thumb, get a real archiver lol

This looks like it would be a fantastic program. However, I do not feel that a person should be forced to install another piece of software on his / her system to uncompress this program. I am not a huge fan of 7 Zip. Therefore, No StaxRip for me.

Since v1.0.0.2 Staxrip needs .Net Framework 3.5. I'm really tired of have to update .Net for 1 app. I'll stick to Staxrip 1.0.0.1.

fredlkrue reviewed v1.0.0.3 on Mar 5, 2008

Changelog...

• Updated x264 profiles and encoder version
• Automatic aspect ratio signaling added for DivX, that mean it's supported for all codecs now
• DivX is the only application I don't host myself. StaxRip links to the download provided at divx.com. The reason is it's 15 MB big. Unfortunately there are silent updates very often. While silent updates usually work with StaxRip, the version detection complains. I've added a special handling for DivX now to handle this issue. StaxRip don't require the exact but a minimum version now for DivX
• Automatic subtitle demuxing using VSRip added
• The profiles dialog has a button now to clone profiles
• Muxing audio profiles are now editable from the audio profiles dialog in order to edit the stream type
• MPA and MP2 were added to be valid stream types for the MP4Box muxer
• Warning added to be shown when trying to open files containing character in the filename the command line parser of DGIndex can't cope with
• The embedded folder browser used to select directories to batch process shows now volume names and hides hidden folders
• The delay macro was only available in the scope of the audio settings, there are now three global macros delay, delay1 and delay2. The help of the audio settings dialog explains now the different scope
• %bitrate% macro added to be used in the audio settings dialog
• The filters dialog, script editor in the filters dialog and the audio settings dialog remember their size
• The filter editor in the main dialog shows a script editor on double-click instead of enable/disable the filter. The filter dialog shows the script editor with a left-click while pressing Ctrl
• Improved support running StaxRip with limited user privilegs which is the normal case under Vista
