Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 07 Sep 2023.



StaxRip is a powerful video encoding GUI for Windows.
It executes and controls console apps like x265, mkvmerge and ffmpeg and uses the scripting based frame servers AviSynth+ and VapourSynth for video processing.

StaxRip is no One-Click-Encoder!
Due to its possibilities, StaxRip forces you to know what you want to achieve and how to set up the options.
Especially at the beginning you have to learn the settings and maybe do some tests to learn how StaxRip works and what is possible. That being said, StaxRip also offers you an assistant that takes care of your settings and changes.

When you struggle, there are multiple ways to get help from the community.


You can find various information and instructions on Wiki and on ReadTheDocs.

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).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
