Hybrid is a multi-platform (Linux, macOS, Windows) converter, based frontend for many other tools. It can convert nearly every input to x264, x265, Xvid, VP9 …. Also ac3, ogg, mp3, aac, and flac inside an mp4, m2ts, mkv, webm, mov, avi container, a Blu-ray or an AVCHD structure.

Hybrid bundles multiple video processing utilities into a single package. It enables you to convert multiple file types into various multimedia formats. Moreover, it can perform tagging and muxing operations and automate common tasks.

One of the main advantages of Hybrid is related to the range of supported formats. It can handle VC-1, AVC raw input, and all the other file types that MPlayer and FFmpeg can decode. It also supports x264, Xvid, VP8, x265, and ProRes as output.

The integrated video encoder can handle multiple encoding modes. Each has specific parameters, such as bitrate, constant rate factors, etc. Moreover, it provides compatibility with various containers, including Blu-ray discs or an AVCHD. In addition, you can use the audio extraction function to generate MP3, OGG, AAC, FLAC, AC3, DTS, and other similar formats.

Hybrid comes with lots of configuration options for more advanced users. You can modify the encoding mode, adjust the bitrate, and set the tune and the entropy coding mode. Furthermore, you can resize loaded images, change their aspect ratio, and crop images manually. Or allow the application to perform this operation for you with the ‘auto crop’ function.

In addition to this, it features filtering capabilities, helping you enhance the quality of your multimedia files before encoding. Among the available options, you can find deinterlacing, telecine, color adjusting, sharpening, denoising, horizontal and vertical deblocking, temporal noise reducing, and many more.
