MeGUI Media Manipulator is a powerful media encoding suite that you can use to rip DVDs and convert video and audio in high-quality and with a great degree of control.
The power user who rips their own CDs and DVDs, encodes video and audio and creates their own media files than can be stored for digital consumption or burnt back to disc will find a lot to like about MeGUI Media Manipulator. MeGUI has many built-in features and tools as well as support for practically any video or audio codec. You can also integrate third-party tools that may not be supported out of the box, and the ability to script encoding and other operations really makes the possibilities endless.
At its simplest, MeGUI lets you rip a DVD into a video file, but at its best, it’s an amazing set of tools that give you complete control over video creation. In addition to choosing the file format and encoder settings, you can implement an AviSynth script during the encoding process, merge audio into the encoding, manipulate subtitles, perform pre-rendering jobs and much more.
MeGUI also provides a powerful queuing system that lets you set up an array of different jobs and workers. Even with powerful PCs, conversion jobs can be time-intensive, so this lets you configure numerous operations, including operations that rely on a previous job, and have it all play out in a predictable manner overnight or while you’re away doing something else. The application also has a sophisticated logging that gives you detailed information about conversions and other operations.
MeGUI is a conversion suite intended for advanced users, and even if you’re not an advanced user yet but have interest in this domain, it’s an application worth learning. It’s not user-friendly. It doesn’t include codecs or preconfigure them or provide any of those little conveniences many modern media apps give you. However, if you want granular control, MeGUI delivers it. It packs all of its features and tools into a menu system and overall user interface in a way that makes sense and provides fast access. The UI is a bit dated by current standards but also highly functional and efficient by power user standards.
