I love MediaCoder multiple supported formats. I have videos in Real Media (rmvb), mkv, QuickTime. MediaCoder has no problem to convert them all to mp4. And it utilizes all 4 cores of my powerful Intel Core2 Quad X9650 Extreme CPU @ 100%. The encoding speed is fast. Love it. A nice companion for HTC HD2 which support hardware mp4 video playback. More and more movies and music videos are in my HTC HD2 now. Do have a try yourself too.
