Release Notes

New in 1.4.23
  • Added French translation.
  • Fixed non-x264 video encoders not sticking in video tab.

New in 1.4
  • Updated HandBrake core to 0.9.9
    • Blu-ray subtitle (PGS) support
    • Additional framerates: 30, 50, 59.94, 60
    • Additional sample rates: 8, 11.025, 12 and 16 kHz
    • 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. :)
    • Replaced Chapters queue column with Range queue column and made it work for all modes.
  • Greatly improved x264 options
    • Preset is now a slider
    • Can now set H.264 Level (incompatible levels for source are grayed out)
    • Added "extra options" text box to Video tab to remove the need to use the Advanced tab
    • Added "Fast Decode" checkbox to support multiple tunes
  • Added a portable version. This packages up VidCoder as an .exe file that does not need to be installed. Be aware that it's not completely portable as you still need .NET 4 Client Profile on the computer for Windows versions earlier than 8.
  • 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.
  • When doing batch file encodes, VidCoder now picks the default title to encode rather than just the first one every time (useful for ISOs).
  • Disc folders can now be batch-added with drag and drop in the same way that ISOs can be.
  • Added the ability to set a custom completion sound.
  • Added an option to set a custom video player.
  • Added ability to set the priority of the worker process.
  • Individual encode jobs now log to a separate file as well as the main consolidated file.
  • Added the option to copy the encode job log to the same output folder as the encoded video.
  • Added preset name as optional queue column.
  • Mixdowns that are not supported by the current source are now grayed out.
  • Custom formatting now works on batch file encodes.
  • Fixes for many bugs, including batch encoding, sizing behavior and many more
