Release Notes

Giant refactoring release.
  • 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.
  • Changed from MVVM Light to Reactive UI, refactoring every ViewModel, and changing every message to instead rely on Observables. Hopefully in the long run this means fewer bugs with things not updating when they should.
  • Overhauled window manager to have a simpler interface and dynamically open windows based on available area, instead of having prescribed spots for them.
  • Added script to copy translated resource files and add them to the project in a Translations subfolder to keep the root Resource folder clean.
  • Ran all views through XAML Styler to clean them up.
  • Queue import/export are now exposed on the CLI.
  • Fixed two pass encoding not working with Target Size.
  • Improved behavior of VidCoder window when importing a queue or preset.

Reviews for this release

     
Still hasn't fixed the regular application exceptions leading to crash, and now with 2.6 the UI is all messed up and clicking on buttons doesn't produce the expected results. Changes to the interface aren't saved. A shame because the beta branch of this app is so far superior to the standalone Handbrake app.

First off THANKS for the new 2.6 beta but it has an exception when selecting files from the source button..The first file you select works fine,,and I will add that file to queue..Then when selecting a second file from the source button the program has the exception and crashes..It also has and exception when you clic the (close video source x) next to the picker..Dragging and dropping files into the window has no issues,so for now that is how I will have to add multiple files to the batch..I am running an eight core Win 7 64bit pc..Thanks again for a great UI and updates I hope you address these issues...;)~

Thnx for the new Beta. :) Open Options and then click on the 'Ok' button so is the Options window still open. Changes made to custom presets that is saved is missing the next time you check the preset in question
