Release Notes

  • Removed the old Advanced user interface and moved x264 preset/profile/tune there instead. The functionality is still available through editing the options string.
  • Added ability to specify the H.264 level.
  • Added ability to choose VidCoder's interface language. If you are interested in translating, we can get VidCoder in your language!
  • Updated WPF text rendering to use the better Display mode.
  • Updated HandBrake core to SVN 5045.
  • Removed logic that forced the .m4v extension in certain cases.
  • Increased max width of preset combo box.
  • Changed VidCoder to be a single-instance program. Attempting to open it again will show the main window.
  • Moved options storage to SQLite rather than the standard .NET user config. This means less chance for config settings to get corrupted.
  • When doing batch file encodes, VidCoder now picks the default title to encode rather than just the first one every time (useful for ISOs).
  • Fixed RF 0 showing (none) in number box.
  • Fixed reported crash on closing.
  • Fixed main UI not updating when output folder was picked in options.
  • Fixed crash when you have two SRT subtitle tracks and mark one as default.

Really? The only reason I use VidCoder over Handbrake is the ability to set a target filesize but there are other aspects that MUST be there: Like having advanced settings for tuning to various playback devices that support different specs. Luckily I have my presets but woe be to me when I have to either tweak them or try to adjust for a new device. Feedback is that this is a big step back!

Please bring back the ability to fine tune the advanced video encoding settings yet still keeping the ability to choose the h264 profile level. Thanks.
