Software Update: ShanaEncoder

ShanaEncoder is an open source video encoder for Windows. It can convert files to another format, but also rotate the image, add subtitles, adjust the sound or add a watermark, for example. The program is of South Korean origin and is actively being developed. It has enough options to satisfy experienced users but is simple enough to be used by beginners as well. Version has just been released and the changelog for that version looks like this:
