Default Media Coder - Dev Thread

Even though my tutorial rips DVDs quite well, many people have had problems with converting videos already on their hard drive. For this reason I wanted to start developing an easy method to transcode videos using the freeware program MediaCoder.

I have had a lot of trouble getting different videos to transcode without any problems while playing on the X-Fi2. If you want to help, play around with MediaCoder until you get something that works perfectly on the X-Fi2, then post the following:
  1. Specs on the source video file
  2. Specs on the final video file
  3. Save the MediaCoder presets to a file and attach it to your post


The ZEN X-Fi2 supports the following Formats (source):

  • WMV9
  • DivX4/5
  • XviD (standard MPEG-4 Simple (SP) or Advanced Simple Profile (ASP) without GMC and QPEL support)
Max Resolution = 640 x 480
Container: .AVI
Recommended Video Bitrate: 800 Kbps
Recommended Frame Rate: Up to 30 fps

  • MP3
  • WMA (DRM9)
  • Audible4
  • non-protected AAC (.m4a)
  • FLAC (up to 1.1 Mbps)

Media Coder Download: Full Edition (

If you have a question, please ask. I am more than happy to help.
