Release Notes

  • Brought back the x264 advanced options panel due to popular demand. Thank you for all the feedback.
  • x264 Preset/Profile/Tune/Level has been moved back to the Video tab, along with a copy of the "extra options" string.
  • Added Fast Decode and Zero Latency checkboxes to support multiple Tunes.
  • Added cropping option "None".
  • Audio bitrates that are incompatible with the encoder (such as MP3 > 320 kbps) are no longer preset on the list.
  • Fixed crash on opening VidCoder after de-selecting "remember locations".
  • Fixed problem with some H.264 levels getting incorrectly grayed out.
  • Fixed problem where preview picture dimensions could "drift" when in Strict or Loose Anamorphic mode.
  • Fixed "Video Codec" label in the audio tab.
  • Renamed ffmpeg to Libav in encoder names to better reflect the library they're coming from, and improved capitalization of encoder libraries.

Reviews for this release

The sample rate for AC3 is set to None if AC3 mode is Passthru, even though the sample rate is actually correct and shows up as 48 kHz in MediaInfo. Demuxing/remuxing seems to fix the problem, but is a bit annoying. Some players choke on these incorrect values. EDIT: mkvMerge can actually modify these values through the 'edit header' option, in the 'Sample rate' tab just enter 48000.
