What is your favorite software for encoding video into a distribution based codec (wmv or H.264)?

On the Mac is has to be Episode, on the PC certainly Carbon Coder or Procoder.

Episode. BTW it's cross platform so I've used both the Mac and Windows versions.

Ah yes, I forgot it's now on Windows. I need to do a side-by-side with Carbon Coder.

It's a shame that Episode Engine is unlikely to be ported over to the PC....or maybe, hopefully, I'm wrong?

[Daniel Low] "It's a shame that Episode Engine is unlikely to be ported over to the PC....or maybe, hopefully, I'm wrong?"

I think Telestream feels that Engine will compete with FlipFactory on the Windows side. I've asked them about this too. I can't help but think that'll have to change someday but it may be awhile. As Episode Desktop gains Windows market share as facilities grow they're going to want to expand with a familiar product feature set. That may be a couple of years off though. Just my very subjective opinion or wishful thinking.

Yes, exactly what I was getting at, but Flip is simply too expensive, good as it is. Carbon Server is gaining a lot of ground and being taken on by a wide and serious customer base. Telestream could be a very serious competitor to Rhozet but they can't hang around.

For VP6 FLV, Sorenson Squeeze or Telestream FlipFactory.
For h.264 or WMV, Telestream Episode.
