Encoders have become so important nowadays simply because of all the video and audio formats that exist and all the devices you can play media on.
RoadMovie is a good batch encoder, if you want to handle a couple of videos at once. The application features a number of presets, so you don't have to muck around with encoding. Just select whether you want your video to work on an iPod, PSP or other device and let RoadMovie do the rest. If you're the kind of person that likes playing with settings though, you'll be glad to know you can create your very own custom presets.
RoadMovie also lets you add in subtitles in common formats like .srt and .sub.
Once your movie is ready you can upload it on the internet via destinations like FTP, S3, .Mac or WebDav.
RoadMovie is a great batch encoder, with good presets, subtitle support and upload possibilities. A good choice if you're looking for a simple yet powerful solution.
