Calling directly into the HandBrake library gives it a more rich UI than the official HandBrake Windows GUI.

You’ll need .NET 4 (only the client profile is needed). If you don’t have it, VidCoder will prompt you to download and install it. If you’re on Windows 8 you shouldn’t need to install anything; it has .NET 4 pre-installed.
You do not need to install HandBrake for VidCoder to work.
