TMPGEnc Plus/TMPGEnc Free Version was often rated as one of the best-quality MPEG-1/MPEG-2 encoders, alongside Canopus ProCoder and Cinema Craft Encoder. The popularity of TMPGEnc encoders has spawned various other products and \"TMPGEnc\" is now used as a general brand name for products such TMPGEnc Authoring Works (a consumer-grade Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and DivX authoring tool), TMPGEnc MovieStyle (a video converter primarily for portable and set-top devices), and TMPGEnc MPEG Editor (an MPEG editing program). TMPGEnc Plus is currently still sold by Pegasys Inc., alongside TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works, TMPGEnc Authoring Works, TMPGEnc MovieStyle, TMPGEnc MPEG Editor, TMPGEnc Instant Show Presenter, and TMPGEnc KARMA..Plus. The TMPGEnc Free Version was updated in 2008 for compatibility with Windows Vista (SP1 included).
In the DivX encoding test the ECS places itself between the two nForce5 motherboards. When using TMPEnc 4 Express to encode a MPEG2 file it trails behind by 2%. Not much but it adds up when you look at the total time. The MP3 encoding however takes almost exactly the same time on all tested motherboards. 1e1e36bf2d
