A powerful and extensive media converter based on QT
A review of Hybrid by Sven Sørensen

Hybrid is a free and professional video converter application, based on a popular open-source back-end.

With Hybrid, you are able to create almost any type of video file with many different audio codecs such as AC3, OGG, MP3, FLAC or AAC. The containers available are MP4, MKV, WebM and M2TS, as well as Blu-Ray support.

Many of the available codecs are installed with the Hybrid package, making it unnecessary to download external packages with the exception of AAC, available as Nero AAC.

In all, Hybrid provides you will all of the tools necessary to convert between video formats and provides several options to control output quality such as bitrate, codec, container and audio formats; perfect if you own a device which does not support a certain codec or container.

Though Hybrid is a pretty advanced application for the end-user, a little know-how provides you with an excellent and powerful tool to undertake video conversion between many formats.
