Although HandBrake is pretty straightforward to use, you can adjust pretty much any aspect of your conversion if necessary. For example, when transcoding video you have the option of adjusting between constant and variable framerate, adjusting average bitrate and constant quality, having 2-pass encoding or not, as well as tinkering with encoder specific options, and many, many, many more options.

VLC is a media player first and foremost. There is no library management (aside from playlists), limited usage of tags, and no rating system. VLC is best at playing a file directly from a folder, but falls behind when it comes to helping you manage or find good songs in your music library. See More
The Freemake Video Converter logo is watermarked on the video and also adds a splash screen to the start and ending of a video. Any IAP will remove the branding at $20 for a one-time fee or a $9 monthly subscription. Look under menu > help to find the IAP options and to purchase if you are so inclined. See More
Currently there are three in app purchase ( IAP) options. All three offer a choice to subscribe monthly at $9 /mo or a one-time unlimited purchase at $19. All IAPs remove the freemake branding and splash screen at beginning end of outputted videos, but the other features that are unlocked differ. Remove branding features: faster video conversion; automatic video backup; exclusive dvd menus; black bars removal. Gold pack features: faster video conversion: black bars removal; video projects auto-save; videos branding removed. Subtitles pack: add subtitles to movies; change subtitles font; edit subtitles size; remove freemake branding. So, if you wanted ALL features of the app and opt for single pay rather than the subscription model, you would need to pony up $60. Look under "help" to find the IAP options and to purchase if you are so inclined. See More
