Highlights for Build 604:

[Enhancement] MPEG2: Support for multiple audio stream.
This involved a major re-write of the MPEG2 stream support. To enable this feature, go to shift+Tools>Options #66 Multi-audio stream. Settings are:
0 - old behavior (single audio stream, uses code from previous versions).
1 - support for multiple audio streams. When you open a file with multiple audio streams, all audio streams are automatically processed. Using Tools>Select stream only changes the primary audio stream. The primary audio stream is the one that is (a) played while editing, and (b) output to streams that support only support a single audio format such as dvr-ms, VC-1, wtv.
2 - single audio stream, utilizing the new code. The new code has much better audio syncing capability especially when recoding.

We recommend using option 1 or 2 and only falling back to 0 if a problem is encountered.

[Enhancement] Batch: In TVS4 new batch manager launched by default. Can change via option #65 on Shift+Tools>Options.
The new "experimental" batch manager from prior releases is now the default for TVSuite V4. It now has built in support for profiles and will execute the batch command internally rather than create a separate .cmd file. A .cmd file output is still available. You can revert to the old batch manager by changing #64 on Shift+Tools>Options or holding down the shift key when launching the match manager.


[Enhancement] DVD: Can now author MPEG2 DVDs from H.264 sources going through separate recoding step.
Prior to this build, you needed to recode H264 files to MPEG2 and then reload them for DVD authoring. This build allows direct authoring of MPEG2 DVDs from H.264 files. Note: Some files cause an aspect ratio problem on the DVDs. This will be fixed in a subsequent build.

[Enhancement] H.264 MP4: Support for AC3 muxing and demuxing enabled.
Full support for AC3 files in .MP4 format. In prior builds if you saved an H.264/AC3 file to .MP4 it would automatically be converted to AAC. This build preserves the original audio format. If you want to convert to AAC for device compatibility, then you'll need to create a custom profile.

[Enhancement] H.264, EAC3 audio support enabled via external automatically downloaded codec.
EAC3 support is enabled utilizing open source codecs from ffMpeg. These codecs are NOT included with the TVSuite install, but are downloaded from our web site automatically if a file with EAC3 is opened. If your system isn't connected to the internet you can download the codecs from: http://www.videoredo.com/Installs/Codec/codec1.exe. Links to the source code provided with the installation.

[Enhancement] MPEG2 streams: Much improved support when video dimension changes. Does not yet handle frame rate changes.
We have made tremendous progress in gracefully handling dimension changes within MPEG2 videos. 1) Your file will no longer automatically close. 2) You'll be able to continue editing and/or QSF. For full options, set Shift+Tools>Options #66 Multi-audio stream to 1 or 2. (see below for options). Note, if you select to open the file with the new dimension, it will skip leading sections that don't match the new dimension, but DOES NOT filter out subsequent dimension changes.

[Enhancement] Profiles advanced options: Add new tab to handle custom XML.
For H.264 recodes, you can tweak settings such as profile, level, reference frame counts, by clicking on the Advanced tab in the profile editor.

Build 605a has been posted:

Mostly fixes for problems introduced in 604.

1) File names with non-latin characters should open properly, once again.
2) Profile editing and "options" not displaying in non-english version should work.
3) Updated translation files (.apt).

Translators: There are a few new strings through many of the modules, so please take a minute, update the .apt and post back to us via the FTP.

Build 608g has been posted:

1) New WTV reader. Will now read WTV created by TVS, handles dvb subtitles, and multiple audio streams (MPEG2 only until H264 multi-audio is supported). Tools>Show Program Info will show file type: WTV. If you have problems, old reader can be enabled by setting shift+T>O, #62 to false.

2) Fixed problem with multiple instances doing two pass H.264 encoding due to conflict with the first pass temporary file. (AVSTAT.LOG).

3) New batch manager checks that COM functions are registered and that they point to the current version of TVS. If not, you will be offered an opportunity to register them.

4) During install, COM functions are automatically registered. Previous versions required you to select, "Start VideoReDo" during install.

5) Uninstall fully remove old COM registry entries.

Please see release notes list in first message of thread for complete of changes.

Build 610 as been posted.

This is a patch to the latest release build (609) which fixes:

1) Maximized window status being cleared after a batch/COM run. If you run batch silently, the wndow position and status from the last interactive session will NOT be overwritten. However, if you run batch with the window displayed, it will be updated.

2) The extra running of the configuration wizard should be eliminated.

Once we have confirmation that these items are fixed, will slipstream these changes into the release downloads.

Build 611 has been posted.

1. Basic support for MKV files, both reading and creating. Additional features such as chapters and subtitling to follow in subsequent releases.

2. Quite a few improvements to the WTV reader, especially if there are areas of protected content in the file.

3. Fix for the intermittent dual-pass encoding of WTV source to H.264 output. The same fix also addresses the intermittent stall when creating multi-title DVDs from WTV files.

4. MP4 files can be read and written with the FFmpeg libraries (now included in the distribution) or the Mainconcept libraries (the default). Switch between them using Shift+Tools>Options #63.

5. New option #64, to store the H264 SPS and PPS directly in the MP4 frame rather than the MP4 header.

Beta Build 613e has been posted.

1) FFmpeg is now the default reader for MP4 files instead of Mainconcept.

2) Support for chapter marks in MP4 and MKV files.

3) New option in output profiles to set the output bit rate based on a the source bit rate, input dimensions and output dimensions. Will post more later.

4) Fix in the WTV reader to skip invalid / corrupt header blocks. Should help some users get past bad sections in their files.

5) TS/PS output streams. Trap and report output errors, like disk full. Other output formats will follow.

Please see release notes for complete list of changes.

Beta Build 618a has been posted:

Lots of internal changes, so please double check your output before deleting your source file(s).

1) FLV support (H.264 with AAC audio. Should work with many YouTube files).2) Focus stealing at end of save should be resolved. There's an option on the Tools>Options>Completion page to preserve old behavior as some users preferred the old behavior. Note: Completion page was renamed from "Audio Alerts".

3) If running in W7 with Aero, taskbar icon will graphically display % complete with a progress indicator.

4) Added support for TWOS audio. This is PCM audio output by many H.264 video cameras and phones.

5) MP4 chapter works were not being honored by iPhone / iPad.

6) When resizing interlaced source video to interlaced output, resize chroma as interlaced. This should improve quality.

Please see the release notes (above) for a complete list of changes.

Beta Build 621c has been posted:

This build has major changes, so please double check your work before deleting your source videos.

1. H.264 multi-audio stream support. Finally! As with MPEG2 mutli-audio, enable by setting shift+T>O #70 to 1.

2. Multi-audio ES muxing for MPEG & H.264.. If multi-audio is enabled, new dialog for ES muxing which permits multiple audio streams to be muxed. Note to translators, this is a new dialog which should be translated.

3. Profile option to place the MOOV option at the beginning or end of MP4 file. iTunes (ipod, iphone, ipad) like the MOOV at the end while streaming devices want it at the beginning.

4. WTV thumbnails. If saving a .wtv > .wtv, previous builds might cause the thumbnail to be removed. In this build we no longer attempt to copy the thumbnail. Instead, the thumbnail is omitted and automatically inserted by MCE after you open a saved file.

5. Note, Multi-audio is now enabled by default for all NEW installations.

Good luck, looking foward to your feedback.

Release note change: 621c

Forgot to mention an important change in QSF interactive and batch in 621c. When you do an interactive QSF, you'll now see a count, in parenthesis, representing the number of samples found with that dimension. The list box will be sorted by this count, from most common (highest number) to least common.

One problem we've had is that it's been tough to set the filtering dimensions in COM/Batch QSF. Now, if you call SetFilterDimensions( -1, -1) before doing a batch QSF, the filter will automatically be invoked with the most common dimension. We haven't yet wired this into our own batch processor, but will do in an upcoming build.

Beta 625 has been posted.

NOTE 1: If you created any custom profiles by copying a default profile that triggered the audio to be recoded, the default bit rate was automatically set to 256 Kbs. Due to a change, these profiles will now recode at a default of 128 Kbs. If you want to use the old 256 Kbs, then you'll need to manually set the audio bit rate using the profile editor. Or, delete your custom profile and re-create it by recopying and editing the default in this release. This only affects profiles created by copying, not ones that you created entirely yourself.
.
NOTE 2: Unless something major comes up in the next few days, we will be posting this beta as an official release early next week.

Please the release notes for changes.
