For people who loves transcoding (like me), they like to watch the progress of their transcodings. So why not make the progress look cooler. A year ago, I was developing a dashboard software for my car. That piece of software wasn’t getting famous like MediaCoder. Fortunately my work wasn’t all wasted. Today I moved my dashboard rendering engine into MediaCoder. A new preview mode named Dashboard mode was added, in which, a dashboard with some live statistics will be shown side by side with the video frame being transcoded.
