Version history / Release notes / Changelog

December 5th, 2016 - v0.50.20
- Improved BD-5/9 full-backups. Sources that do not use BD-J can be reencoded using the full-backup mode, and should play on any AVCHD compatible device. This includes all imported and quick-play authored discs. A small asterisk will display in the upper left corner of the streams list next to the disc title for any source/mode that meets the criteria for an AVCHD compatible full backup to BD-5/9.
- Updated code so that X264/LAVF can also be used for ALTERNATE encoding. In previous releases ALTERNATE encoding forced the use of DirectshowSource (for resizing). Now X264's internal resizing filters are used when X264/LAVF is selected. This reduces BD-RB's dependence on LAVF or FFDSHOW.
- Modified processes so the MENU_FORCE_QUICK hidden option also applies to imports. This makes if possible to create a menu even for only one imported item.
- Corrected an issue in which the presence of the MENU_ITEMS_PAGE hidden option would add NEXT and LAST selections to a menu, even though there is only one menu page created.
- Fixed an problem in which multipart sources could cause an error 0000 in CreateAVS() when SupTitle support is requested during an ALTERNATE movie-only backup.
- Reinstituted the Donations popup. It only appears once at startup for each version release.
- Updated the included version of X264.EXE to the latest release (r2744).
- Updated the included version of X264-64.EXE to the latest release (r2744).
- Other minor corrections and cosmetic fixes.

Take a look at the file called ALTERNATE.TXT in the MISC folder. It is designed so you can create any kind of profile that you desire. There is text at the top explaining the parameters, and a list of examples (which are the defaults that show up). You can edit the list; remove the ones you don't like or use; and create new ones.

I'm happy to see new options for HEVC encoding. But, I don't understand in the window offering several MP4/MKV output format, why the combination "MKV HEVC 1920x1080 + intact audio" is not proposed!?

Looked like a great app that would meet my needs but then I ran inot a problem. I have a MKV file where audio is Japanese and subtitles English. Playing the MKV plays correctly. When I changed the settings in the app to use only Japanese audio and only English subtitles it still used English audio and no subtitles. When I said to use all audio and all subtitles, it only did English audio, no subs. When I said none for either, it did English audio only, no subs. What I can't figure out is what is happening for it to ignore the original audio, Japanese, and the default subtitles, English. Any help would be appreciated.

Excellent video tool, I use since many years.
I could be interesting BD-Rebuilder also check from "inspection menu" the presence of a installed video splitter like Mastroska.
Because for a new windows 10 installation, with this tool not installed yet, it was very difficult to know why BD-Rebuilder should not able to extract video stream and the reason it stopped before reencoding...

Good "life" to BD-Rebuilder! :)

This BD-Rebuilder is what I needed. Rebuild a 10GB Bd movie back to fit DVD9. I donated some euro's(dollars) because without this tools it will be an expensive hobby to burn larger BD's on BD-Discs instead of DVD9. Thanks for this tool.
