DVDREasy 0.8.1 BETA is out !

DVDREasy 0.8.1 (BETA !!!) is ready:
-----------------------------------------
- The source can now be a movie in DVD or an allready ripped movie in HD
- analyse the vob files to get audio/video file sizes
- inform the user of % of video compression needed
- let user choose between Quality Mode (Re-encoding) and Speed Mode (transcoding)
- Re-author method is much faster

Note:
-----
Everytime that source is DVD movie, decrypter will fire up for a few seconds just to Authenticade DVD. (I don´t like this aprouch, but it was the only way credible that I found. I played around with AUTHDVD.DLL by NIC but is very buggy and cause a lot of system craches) I will change this as soon I figure out other way. So, when DVDDecrypter fire to authenticate DVD please don´t close it, otherwise DVDREasy will close/Crash/hung...

This is an update release. You must have DVDREasy 0.7.2 installed.

If you want to preserve the latest oficial version (0.7.2) please rename, in DVDREasy program dir, the file DVDREasy.EXE to DVDREasy_072.exe and then install 0.8.1 BETA !


Changes 0.7.2 :
------------------
- In AUTOMATIC IFO SELECTION, DVDREasy now checks for the contens of DVD. If it's smaller than 4.7 GB, you now have 3 choices:
..........Continue Conversion - The same as before
..........Create ISO Image - DVDDECRYPTER will create an ISO Image
..........Clone DVD - DVDDECRYPTER will create ISO Image and Burn it



Changes 0.7.1:
-----------------
- Correct "run time error 5" that sometimes occurred when a second audio was chosen
- DGMPEGDEC (DGINDEX.EXE and DGDECODE.DLL) will be use instead of DVD2AVI
- Add the possibility to use custom AVISYNTH script for CCE and HC
- HC binary update to 0.15 beta
- Code Optimization

Changes 0.6.9:
-----------------
- Multilanguage support. Available languages : English , Spanish and Portuguese

Changes 0.6.8:
-----------------
- DVDREasy now support choosing up to 2 AUDIOS and 2 SUBTITLES.
To continue using DVDREasy with only 1 AUDIO and 1 SUBTITLE you can choose "--- No Audio ---" for the secondary Audio and "--- No Subtitles ---" for the secondary Subtitles.

Changes 0.6.5 :
------------------
- Corrections in IFO parsing. In some DVD’s, mostly in Collectors Edition, have 2 subtitles for the same language [Wide] and [letterbox] and DVDREasy was parsing incorrectly.
- Automatic main-movie IFO selection. Just point the DVD-ROM/RW or Virtual DVD where you have the movie and DVDREasy automatically selects the right IFO.

Changes 0.6.3 :
------------------
- Added One Pass Variant Bitrate for HC (beta stage !!!)
- HC binary update to 0.14 beta

Changes 0.6.2:
-----------------
- BITRATE VIEWER is not used anymore.
- Correction in IFO parsing (in extremely rare situations DVDREasy detected wrong movie time)
- Corrected "dc_prec" setting for HC in DVDREasy.ini
- Added One Pass Variant Bitrate for CCE (beta stage !!!)

Thanks to hank315 who developed MPEGinfo -a small tool to get information from mpeg stream (m2v, mpeg and vobs). From now on, DVDREasy will use MPEGinfo instead of BITRATE VIEWER.


UPDATE (you must have DVDREasy 0.7.2 installed) :
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Download the file, unzip it to DVDREasy folder (ex: c:\program files\dvdreasy) and make sure that you checked "Overwrite Existing Files" and "Use folder Names" in winzip

Here is the file
DVDREasy_081.zip

If you want to download the full package please visit DVDREasy web site

Cheers,

DVDREasy

Hi,

CCE 2.70.02.00 has a BUG. When you invoke it by command line with the parameter "-batch" its supposed to begin encoding... But, CCE stands in the screen waiting for the user to press the "Encode" button.

Here is DVDREasy 0.6.4 BETA.
DVDREasy was modified to invoke CCE in a different way - only for this CCE version.

The functionallity in this DVDREasy release is exactly the same as 0.6.3. You only need this release if you are using CCE 2.70.02.00

If the feedback of this release is OK, this workaround will be implemented in the next offical release

UPDATE (you must have DVDREasy 0.6.3 installed) :
-------------------------------------------------------------
Download the file, unzip it to DVDREasy folder (ex: c:\program files\dvdreasy) and make sure that you checked "Overwrite Existing Files" and "Use folder Names" in winzip

DVDREasy_064.zip

Please, post your feedback on using this release

Hi Pedro ,
Thank you so much for the updates especially the OPV feature on HC.
Unfortunately I still haven't found much time to test it.
For some days I've been strugling with other issues and mostly I have done my encodes with manual procedures thus not using DVDREasy .
Nevertheless, I had 2 runs with DVDREasy 0.6.3 on 2 different movies (The Matrix and Star Wars IV).
For both cases I used HC in OPV mode but I'm not sure if I used 0.13 or 0.14 .
I have to say that while it was pretty accurate with The Matrix (within 1%), it was quite a bit undersized with SW by nearly 4%.
This undersize issue is very strange if you take into account that the 1st try was a bullseye on the target so I'm not fully convinced that DVDREasy was the problem.
I'll have to check the script that I was using and then I'll let you know.
I'll try to run some more tests by the end of the week.
Cheers mate

EDIT:
Say Pedro, I understand that you want to deliver a full package, meaning, with all the tools needed to encode a movie such as avisynth, dvd2avi, etc...
That's wonderfull for debuging issues because when a user reports a bug you don't have to worry if the user was running the right tools with DVDREasy binaries when he bumped into the problem.
But most of us have these same utils already manually installed and it's tricky to have them installed by hand and by DVDREasy's installer.
So my question is, could you release a version of DVDREasy with just the binaries and maybe no installer.
I mean, maybe providing an ini file where we can set the path to avisynth, dvd2avi, etc...
That would really be something

Hi Rui,

I understand your request . . .

But, that way I will have to support 2 versions of DVDREasy !

I will have to think about it . . .

Cheers,

DVDREasy

Hi Pedro ,
Don't sweat, I know I am asking something that is probably very hard to accomplish in a short term.
Nevertheless, if you ever plan on redesigning the way DVDREasy is deployed and configured, just check if you can make it package independant.
I've seen some installers like the one you use with an option among many others that doesn't write anything in the registry and that simply extracts some binaries to a selected path instead of installing the whole thing.
That would probably solve the "it needs 2 versions because 1 will have an installer and the other one will be a zip file with a couple of binaries".
But it's just a simple request that can easily go waaaay to the bottom of your to do list .
Cheers mate

Can you (or someone else) tell me how you fix this problem ? I'm facing the same bug to incoke CCE from a perl script

It's urgent ! Thanks.

Edit: okay, not urgent anymore, I use ccefront insteed. But I'm still worried about how it's possible to use directly the cce 2.70 CLI

Hi Dialhot,

Sorry to only reply now, but I was on vacations

You have to invoke CCE 2.70.02.00 MINIMIZED !!!! that's the trick !

in VB is something like this :

Code:
pid = Shell(cmdline, vbMinimizedFocus)
Got it ?!

Cheers,

DVDREasy

Couldn't you call XP start command from perl?

Something like:

Shell start /min cce...
