FFQueue is a GUI Front-end for FFmpeg

We earlier covered the command line tool FFmpeg and how you can use it for converting media formats for video, audio and graphic files. Although using FFmpeg is not that difficult by any means, but being a command line tool it can appear to be overwhelming to many people who are not accustomed to using command line interface or have never used any command line tool before. For all these people, there is a GUI front-end for FFmpeg called FFQueue. Using this GUI front-end, you can skip all the command line interface and work with FFmpeg directly through the FFQueue GUI.

You can start by downloading the FFQueue archive and extracting it into the same folder as the ffmpeg.exe (from the FFmpeg package). Now when you launch ffqueue.exe, it automatically recognizes the location of FFmpeg binaries. If it fails to find the location of the ffmpeg.exe and other binaries, then you have to manually enter the full path to these files in the FFQueue options.

Once that is done, you can add the input media files by clicking on the Add button. You can choose two input files and choose the video and audio streams to be included in the output file. The output file is automatically selected to be an MP4 file, but you can choose it to be anything you want (e.g., AVI, WMV etc.).


After you click on the Start button it starts to make the video and audio encoding. The progress information of the encoding process is displayed in the FFQueue window. When the conversion is complete, you can play the output media using your favorite media player.


FFQueue can be a great help for those who want to use FFmpeg but are scared of the command line interfaces. With FFQueue GUI front-end everyone can use FFmpeg through the GUI interface easily.
