NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade hybrid -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade hybrid -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Hybrid is a multi platform (Linux/Windows) Qt based frontend for a bunch of other tools which can convert nearly every input to x264/x265/Xvid/VP9/AV1... + ac3/ogg/mp3/aac/flac inside an mp4/m2ts/mkv/webm/mov/avi container, a Blu-ray or an AVCHD structure.
(not supporting Mac OS any more since I don't own a Mac anymore)

Hybrid is intended for advanced users.
It doesn't aim to be a tool used by everybody.
If you don't know the basics about contains, video formats, etc. Hybrid is not meant for you.

Here's a general feature list:

  • tagging support for mkv/mp4/mov
  • chapter support for mkv/mp4/Blu-ray
  • subtitle suppot for mkv/mp4/Blu-ray
  • separated audio-, video-, filter profiles, audio&video combi profiles
  • an integrated bitrate calculator
  • accepts vc-1 and avc raw input
  • manual&automatic creation&pass-through of chapters
  • ability to encode single title/chapters
  • a job-control
  • aac/mp3/ac3/ogg/flac/dts/pcm audio encoding with dcaenc/mencoder/ffmpeg/aften and different aac encoders
  • supported aac encoders: qaac, fdk, faac, fhg, neroaacenc
  • filtering through mencoder (+ some resize automation) or avisynth if the 'avisynth extension' is used
  • acceptable Input: avs and everything that mplayer/ffmpeg can decode
  • supported video output formats: MPEG-4 ASP (Xvid), MPEG-4 AVC (x264, qsvencc, nvencc, vceencc, ffmpeg nvenc), VP8/VP9 (vpxenc), ProRes (ffmpeg), MPEG-4 HEVC (x265, kvazaar, DivX265, nvencc, qsvencc, vceencc, ffmpeg nvenc), FFV1 (ffmpeg), UT video (ffmpeg), FFvHuff (ffmpeg), AV-1 (aomenc, rav1e)
  • supported audio output formats: dts, ac3, ogg vorbis, mp3, aac, flac, pcm, opus, pass-through
  • supported containers: mov/mp4/mkv/m2ts/webm/avi, Blu-ray or a AVCHD structure
  • audio/video pass-through -> can be used for muxing, tagging, chapter editing
  • a lot of option to automate stuff

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
