[Fix] 600 Beta Joiner broken

VideoReDo Plus
Welcome to the next generation of the VideoReDo Plus. Retaining the same look and feel as previous versions of VideoReDo Plus, this version has substantial internal improvements including the ability to handle Tivo HD. Plus and TVSuite now share the same fundamental code base which will allow us to maintain future versions of both products on a quicker timetable.

In this version there are three major GUI / option changes:
1) We have added the ability to open files directly from a DVD folder from the file menu.
2) On the Tools>Options>General page, you can select the prefered audio type. Previous versions would open the first audio stream encountered.
3) For DVR-MS users: On the Tools>Options>DVR-MS/MCE page, there is a new option called "Tag". If you are using DVR-MS on Vista and are not able to see the thumbnails on files saved by VideoReDo Plus, try unchecking this option and resaving the file.

Note 1, We recommend that you install the beta into a seperate folder from your current version of VideoReDo Plus.

Plus beta 601 has been posted. Joiner problem in 600 has been fixed.

Plus beta 602 has been posted. Please see release notes above for changes.

Note, if you have a DVR-MS file that starts with MPEG audio but switches to AC3 and are having trouble opening the AC3, try the following:

1) On the Tools>Options>General page, set the preferred to AC3.
2) On the Tools>Options>Stream page, set the Mbytes to scan to make sure you include the video with the AC3 audio.

To determine a good value for "Mbytes to scan," open the file and, with thumbnails displayed, navigate to where the audio is no longer displayed. Then click on the "Switch" button in the lower right of the screen and see where in the file the cursor is positioned.

VideoReDo Plus Beta 603 has been posted. Please see the change log above for a list of all the changes.


1) This beta now has support for multiple languages. If you are interested in editing an existing translation, or creating a new one (Spanish would be nice :) ), please contact Pat (user PHD) on the message board or via email at support @

2) We are getting very close to release of a new version of Plus so please let us know if you spot any issues with this build.

3) Update: This build addresses the Vista SP2 / Comodo problem. We can't get it to fail here so if you've had the problem please give the beta a try and let us know if this build fixes it.

Beta 604 has been posted.

There's an important change in this release. We would like to remove the DX and DX-multimon video driver support in future builds to provide additional functionality.

To this end, when you run the configuration wizard, if you are using those video drivers, the configuration wizard will automatically switch you to the VMR7 driver. We believe that the VMR7 driver should be a seamless replacement for the DX drivers, but if not, you can revert back by going to the Tools>Options>Playback devices page. Please let us know, via an email to support @ if the VMR7 driver causes any issues for you.

1) Note the new version number and that the build number has been changed from 603 to 585. We are changing the way we handle version numbers. In this case:

  • 3 - Major version.
  • 10 - Product code, and minor build. 10-19 is reserved for VideoReDo Plus.
  • 1 - Release number.
  • 585 - build number. The build number represents the specific code base used to make the build. We now have multiple products (with more on the way), so all products built with a specific build number come from the same code base.

Please see the release notes above for a list of changes in this release.
