<<Terug naar software beschrijving

Veranderingen voor v2.57 - v2.58

  • Fixed auto-population of Custom denoise preset so that a string generated for hqdn3d won't stay around for NL-Means (or vice-versa).
  • Updated translations.



Veranderingen voor v2.56 - v2.57

  • Fixed encode details and progress behavior when removing multiple queue items at once.
  • Fixed issue with estimating audio size using presets where the copy mask had not been explicitly set.

Veranderingen voor v2.53 - v2.54

  • Fixed crash when getting default bitrate for fallback.



Veranderingen voor v2.52 - v2.53

  • Fixed bitrate when fallback encoder is used on auto passthrough. It should now always use the default bitrate.
  • Fixed UriFormatException when loading cached previews with SettingsDirectory set to "."
  • Updated translations
  • Removed fontconfig files that are no longer needed



Veranderingen voor v2.51 - v2.52

  • Updated translations.



Veranderingen voor v2.50 - v2.51

  • Updated HandBrake core to 1.0.7 to fix some encoding bugs.



Veranderingen voor v2.49 - v2.50

  • Updated HandBrake core to 1.0.3, which fixes a handful of scan/encode bugs



Veranderingen voor v2.46 - v2.47

  • Fixed issue with database upgrades from v1.5 to v2.



Veranderingen voor v2.45 - v2.46

  • Brought back 32-bit builds.
  • Fixed issue where the "starting update download" status message was not shown.
  • Updated System.Data.SQLite and moved it to a NuGet package.



Veranderingen voor v2.38 Beta - v2.44

  • Fixed 90 degree rotation being squashed.
  • Fixed DVD folder detection in batch jobs to recognize when a VIDEO_TS folder is selected directly but is not named VIDEO_TS.
  • Fixed naming of audio tracks.
  • 2.43
  • Added pickers! Pickers let you automatically choose titles, audio, subtitles and destination, as well as automatically queue or start encodes when a source is loaded. While encoding presets customize how a file is encoded, pickers control what is included in the file and where it goes. This also includes an overhaul of the existing audio and subtitle selection feature; it allows specifying multiple languages and has more flexibility in setting the default subtitle.
  • Overhauled sizing UI.
  • Added padding support
  • Streamlined UI: No longer can specify both Width and Max Width, simply a checkbox to allow Anamorphic support, Custom Anamorphic gone in favor of Manual sizing
  • Moved rotation to Sizing tab
  • Renamed tabs Picture -> Sizing, Video -> Video Encoding
  • Removed Pixel Aspect Ratio information in input/output preview boxes if PAR is 1:1.
  • Sections within Sizing tab now wrap dynamically, supporting more window sizes.
  • Added a collapsible left panel to the Encoding Preset window, to switch presets quickly.
  • Added a built-in video player to the preview window. This can be disabled in Options -> General.
  • Added CPU throttling option. This can limit the number of processor cores available to VidCoder for encoding.
  • Added ability to pick which codecs are included with auto-passthrough and which are re-encoded.
  • Moved audio fallback encoder to outside of the audio encoding, since it affects all encodings.
  • All internal storage for presets, pickers, queues and window placements changed from XML to JSON. Saved presets and queues are now stored as .vjpreset and .vjqueue JSON files which are associated with VidCoder.
  • Updated .NET Framework to 4.6 and added the ability to download and install the framework as part of the VidCoder install. Hopefully this means faster start times on x64 due to the new RyuJit engine.
  • Scan progress now shows up on the taskbar icon.
  • Queue import/export are now exposed on the CLI.
  • Added ability to hibernate when completing an encode.
  • Added option to close VidCoder after the encode queue completes with no errors.
  • Added ability to send completed file to another program.
  • Swapped to a simpler versioning scheme with two numbers.
  • Removed deprecated x86 version. If you're using that on an x64 OS it will auto-upgrade you to the supported x64 version.
  • Removed DXVA hardware decoding; it was most often slower and caused problems.
  • Added a warning when there are a lot of titles with a similar duration. This helps identify discs authored with a bunch of phony titles and chapters mixed up.
  • Changed the way the portable version locates the database file. It will now favor using the database file beside the portable executable rather than the one in %appdata%.
  • Preview encode progress bar now correctly reflects total progress and does not reset when doing a subtitle scan or a 2-pass encode.
  • Made log output to the window appear drastically faster.
  • Changed log window to only scroll to the bottom on new logs if we were already at the bottom, so it doesn't pop you out if you scrolled away to look at something earlier in the log.
  • File drag/drop now works on any window.
  • We now back up database files when upgrading them and offer to restore them if the current database has a version that's too high. This allows you to downgrade back to an earlier version and keep your old presets.
  • Added handling for a simple path argument directly on VidCoder.exe. This means you can drag a video onto its shortcut to launch VidCoder and open that file.
  • Added automatic character set detection when adding SRT files. Gives a warning when the detection fails or doesn't match up with an available encoding.
  • Added automatic cleanup of temporary handbrake files for times where the encoder or app crashed without graceful cleanup.
  • The "Custom folder for previews" setting now also overrides the directory used for HandBrake's static previews.
  • Updated to handle new HandBrake filter format, with named parameters. Added tooltips to the boxes to list the possible parameter names and to list the defaults when first opening.
  • Updated to keep source video chapter names if they are present.
  • Moved batch scans to the worker process to better protect against scan crashes when loading a large number of files.
  • New translations
  • Georgian, thanks to Gela Mekoshkishvili.
  • Dutch, thanks to CSalat and Arco Keijzer.
  • Korean, thanks to sheppaul.

  • Additional higher bitrates for audio
  • Same as Source Constant Framerate
  • 24-bit FLAC encoding
  • Added Windows Phone 8 and Apple TV 3 presets
  • Introduced process isolation for encodes. Now if HandBrake crashes, VidCoder will keep running and continue processing the queue.
  • Added view modes to the Preview window. Now you can see the image in 1:1 or in "Corners" mode to show a close-up of cropping results.
  • Overhauled the Options dialog Better, more organized interface
  • Resizable
  • More options
  • Dedicated Updates panel with more information and the ability to check for an update manually
  • Big update to video range UI There's now a bar you can click to set the start and end: left click to set the start and right click to set the end.
  • "Start Seconds" and "End Seconds" have been replaced with editable duration fields with the format 0:00:00 . Should no longer require math to actually set. :)

  • Moved options storage to SQLite rather than the standard .NET user config. This means less chance for config settings to get corrupted.
  • Laid groundwork for the next beta to install side-by-side with the stable version.
  • Fixed non-centered text, bad coloring and inconsistent button looks in Windows 8.
  • Added Hungarian translation, thanks to Brechler Zsolt. You can pick your preferred language in Options -> General. If you want to see VidCoder in your language, help out on VidCoder's Crowdin page.
  • Updated WPF text rendering to use the better Display mode.
  • Added a menu option and button to close the current video source and get the initial "pick source" UI back.
