Welcome New Users (Very Important)

Post by mixer » Tue Jun 30, 2009 10:17 am

Hello and welcome to the MediaCoder forums, we hope that you enjoy using MediaCoder.

This "Basic Discussions" forum is for the basics and just getting started questions.

Please realize that MediaCoder is in development and so you'll have to do some experimenting and testing. Your testing and ideas will help out the continued development of Media Coder.

Suggestions to make things easier:

1. There is a more stable "Candidate Release" or "Previous Version" of Media Coder in the download section. This has been tested more and will have less problems. For older versions that may work better as well, read this: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=6917

Also keep in mind that installing or updated to the latest version/build of MediaCoder may introduce more problems. Sometimes it may be better to stick with what you have, if it works for you.

2. Please also install the additional "Extra Codecs Pack", this provides support for other older codecs.
3. Make sure you search the forum for potential answers before you post a question by using the "Search" box above.

Read these tips and rules before posting:

b. Your version/build of MediaCoder

d. Type of file you want to make and what you hope that it will playback on.

If you don't provide the above information, your post may not be answered.

5. Just post your question once, do not duplicate your post to other sections.
