Good converter.

Seen about SUPER using a couple of files it brought in. Scanners say the
command line apps two files are malware. One Firewall saw SUPER try
browse the local network and access the internet without being invited.  
Is it typical?

I can't find the exact post you're referring but those that are linking to
are from 3 years ago.   Super's quirkiness and
installation of dll's into the System32 subdirectory have previously been
discussed.  There's a reference in the Videohelp comments to a forum that
discussed it at length and concluded that Super was "clean".  They've
supposedly upgraded the instatllation and uninstallation procedure of the
program.  However, their website, Erightsoft.net continues  to be problematic
because you have to lessen your firewall security just to be able to download
the program.  

Check the Afterdawn or Videohelp forums for comments about Super.
I prefer to use Mediacoder anyway (and that frequently asks to contact the
net to check for updates or news about the program.  You can just have your
firewall deny access, or let it check and use a program like TCPview to close
the connection yourself after it checks.

Can't you override the update check in some config?
Set it to manual or never?

Super needs managing.  I'll try Mediacoder instead.

Medicoder has been my favorite for quite a while; my main problem has
been during updating, which doesn't always go according to plan on my
system.  :-)

Recently I've tried Format Factory (http://www.pcfreetime.com /) which
comes close to being automatic once you set your preferred codecs and
other parameters.  I'm not sure whether it can do everything that
Medicoder does, but it does nearly everything I'm interested in.
