Changes for (64-bit) v220.127.116.11 - (64-bit) v2.0.3colorspace="YV12" removed from ffms2 defaults because it converts to 8 bitthe x264 encoder uses now avs2pipemod64 because the avs input did not support 10 bitDTS-X is now demuxed as dtshd instead of mkaupdate: mkvtoolnix 36.0.0update: avs FluxSmooth 1.4.7update: avsmeter 2.9.5
Changes for (64-bit) v18.104.22.168 - (64-bit) v22.214.171.124fix: downloads were using 7z extension even though it was zip instead of 7zupdate: LSMASHSource avsupdate: mkvtoolnix126.96.36.199new: again new experimental icon, please give feedback if you like it,if it's not liked then it will be reverted to the classic icon, the problemwith the classic icon is it looks outdated because it's not flatnew: added ConvertFromDoubleWidth to AviSynth profiles, it's useful to fix thedouble width output that l-smash outputs for 10 (or more) bit sources.The profiles were not reset so the changes are only availableafter reseting the profiles manuallynew: in the x265 dialog it's possible to select the preferred piping tool,use at your own risk, not all combinations will work. In theory the includedx265 built don't need a piping tool but I could not make it work withouta piping tool. Options are: Automatic, None, vspipe, avs2pipemod, ffmpegupdate: ffmpeg, unlike the built before this one supports mp3 encodingupdate: x264, x265update: d2v vs filter plugin188.8.131.52fix for audio streams demuxed as mka184.108.40.206new: nvencc --vpp-nnedi, --vpp-yadifnew: few new x265 switches added
Changes for (64-bit) v220.127.116.11 - (64-bit) v18.104.22.168new: x265 option --force-flush addedfix: job dialog DPI scaling issue on small screensupdate: mpv 0.26.0update: x265 2.5+22.214.171.124 unstable test buildfix: the main window stayed in the background instead of being activated to be top mostfix: on Turkish locale staxrip used "SSIM".ToLower() which won't result in ssim and thus --tune ssim did not work, it's required to use ToLowerInvariant instead of ToLower, there might be more bugs like this126.96.36.199 unstable test buildfix: one of the included powershell scripts was broken due to internal improvements188.8.131.52 unstable test buildfix: log files are no longer saved in the target folder if the temp folder is deleted, they can be found at: Tools > Folders > Log Filesfix: when a job failed it's no longer removed from the joblistfix: when job processing starts there is only one Window activation at the start and no subsequent window activations, this prevents to interupt other software like players184.108.40.206 unstable test buildfix: shutdown/standby controls were not always visible when they should220.127.116.11 unstable test buildnew: at the bottom of the video encoder option dialogs there is a menu item to import a command line from the clipboard18.104.22.168 unstable test buildnew: everytime the settings are saved there is also a backup of the settings saved in the settings folderfix: in case of high memory usage like a avisynth filter leaking memory, if staxrip detects more then 1500 MB memory are consumed while jobs are processed it restartsfix: job list got wiped when a job was abortedfix: if an error happened in a job processing was aborted instead of continuing with other jobs22.214.171.124 unstable test buildfix: job processing is now done in the current instance like in the pastfix: turned out staxrip never had a memory issue but the experimental ffms2 build was leaking memory126.96.36.199 unstable test buildnew: powershell added to main menu at: Tools > Advanced > PowerShell, it sets the temp dir as work dir and aliases for all tools so you can type something like: ffmpeg -hchange: besided dtsma and thd now also eac3, thd+ac3 and dtshr are preferred when staxrip searches for audio fileschange: displayed audio track ID numbers now always start with 1change: raw audio formats (thd, eac3, aac) that potentionally don't support seeking are now played without video188.8.131.52 unstable test buildnew: qaac has a new option to pipe from ffmpeg instead of converting to FLAC/W64/WAVupdate: ffmpeg 3.3.2update: x265 2.5+184.108.40.206 unstable test buildnew: aimed quality feature of the old x264 GUI added to the x264 and x265 GUIfix: unable to recover processing form from trayfix: unable to open new files (start new processes) after the process abortion feature was usedupdate: x265 2.4+9220.127.116.11 unstable test buildnew: AviSynth+ x64 plugins added: modPlus, SmoothAdjust, AutoAdjustupdate: NNEDI3 0.9.4.44update: KNLMeansCL 1.1.01.5.2.1 unstable test buildnew: various new features and improvements in the apps management dialognew: The jobs dialog will show it's help the first time jobs are started explaining staxrip's parallel processing featureschange: tray icon stays visible even when the job processing window is visiblechange: mpc replaced with mpvfix: when automatic demuxing of the video stream is enabled or if demuxing of the video stream was enabled in the demuxing dialog the demuxed video stream wasn't opened afterwards but still the original video was opened18.104.22.168 unstable test buildnew: context help is now implemented for all video encoders, a right-click on any label, menu or checkbox will show the help for the option, for nvenc, qsvenc and vceenc a new help browser was developed with powershell look and feelnew: UT Video added for ffmpeg video encoder GUI with options for: -pred (None Left Gradient Median) -pix_fmt (YUV420P YUV422P YUV444P RGB24 RGBA)new: help improved for Tags in mp4box container options dialog, the help is runtime generated using the output from mp4box -tag-listnew: ffmpeg muxing formats menu and profiles added for: asf avi flv ismv mkv mov mp4 mpg mxf nut ogg ts webm wmvnew: audio target format W64 added with 16/24 bit depth optionnew: nvenc options --cuda-schedule, --perf-monitor, --perf-monitor-intervalfix: cmd.exe is now used directly without batch files, this improves foreign/special character support in particular on Windows 7fix: Jobs Processing window popping up while job processing even when staxrip was previously minimizedfix: tray icons not cleaned upfix: in a few dialogs the help dialog was shown four times instead oncefix: broken scaling on DPI change using a multi-monitor setup, virtual scaling is used in that case nowfix: crash when cutting empty subtitleschange: all classes made public for powershell usageupdate: x264 0.150.2851update: nvenc 22.214.171.124.8 unstable test buildfix: unable to show processing window from trayupdate: qsvenc 2.7126.96.36.199 unstable test buildnew: setting added to define the maximum number of parallel

qsvenc options --fade-detect and --repartition-checkfix: wrong fps display in main form for 50/60 fpsfix: version detection disabled for all VC++ runtimes because of issues with file projection via

introduced in 220.127.116.11, video profile settings were reset because at the same time I improve the x265 GUI, the video profile settings will be reset again until the GUI is finished in 1-2 weeks, the old GUI will then be removedfix: the feature to reuse existing audio output files from previous job runs had a bug that would result in the wrong file muxedfix: the automatic name generation for the audio settings wasn't always working correctlytweak: the 'Play audio and video' feature in the menu of the audio source files was changed, it still has limitations but shows a message box to tell

test buildnew: to run PowerShell scripts on certain events the Event Command feature is no longer needed, it's documented here: -scriptingnew: there are 2 new options what to do in case the video and audio encoder output files alread exists from a previous job run (reuse, overwrite or ask (default)), the 'Just Mux' video encoder profile does alse reuse the output file from previous job runs, in case it don't exist it uses the source videonew: there is a new option to define which intermediate format should be used in case the audio encoder don't support the input format, supported is FLAC (default) and W64 (WAV > 4 GB)new: there is a new option to define which app should be used to create the intermediate audio file (default is ffmpeg)new: the MediaInfo window has 'Developer Mode' in
