Oh, be really careful when installing 'freeware".
I've read two articles about all the extra rubbish that they
try to add to your install.

Some show the extra with a check mark and you can opt out.
Some just load you up with a mess.
Can depend on where you download from!

(I use TMPGEnc 5 for that but is not free)

Also an alternative to consider.

If you are playing back the videos on a PC, use VLC which can modify the brightness and contrast when playing back. This way you can avoid the lengthy reencode process.


I use Zoom Player on the PC which allows me to alter the brightness, contrast, etc. but I wanted it for a couple of music videos that I also watch on my 'phone. MX Player lets me adjust the brightness but I'd rather just sort it out properly. They're fairly short so it won't take long to re-encode them. Thanks for the suggestion though.
