[Enhancement] Captions: (VRDPro) Support converting EIA_608 captions in an MP4 to user data.
[Change] H.264: Aspect ratio could be off due to SAR rounding error.
[Change] H.264: Improperly encoded SAR setting with aspect ratio of 0:0 causes H.264 encoder validation error when doing a cut.

[Fix] GXF/LXF: (VRDPro) Intermittent seeking issues with GXF/LXF files.
[Fix] H.264 files: Sync issue when a large GOP starts with IDR and rest of GOP are I-Frames that aren't used as references.
[Fix] Joiner: Output not clearing output complete dialog resulting in statistics showing from previous joins.
[Fix] MPEG2 navigation: Fixed rare problem with frame accurate navigation of transport stream (and Tivo TS) files.
[Fix] Output: If profile is "Match source" and source is not MPEG2 or H.264, would error, now recodes to H.264.

[Fix] Output profiles: Progressive sequence flag not being set when converting 1080i to 720p with BOB deinterlacer.
[Fix] TS Muxing: H.264 TS muxing, improve calculation for the VBV site so that it uses both profile and level.
[Fix] TS Muxing: Improve initial PCR value and properly set the max duration allowed in the ES (decode) buffer.
[Fix] WTV files: Fall back to ffMpeg reader for WTV files that won't open with our standard reader.

Paid the one time fee (for the full version) in mid 2000s. Buy it.... you won't regret it. Worth every cent/$. Used to use it for editing out the ads from my snapstream TV files before I bought a used TIVO with lifetime subscription ($200 at a garage sale). Now i use it for converting DVD movie files to MPEG before using avi.NET to convert to DIVX format. Why the multi-steps? Because IMO it gives the highest quality/smallest size files for adding to my home library. Plus it's really not a big deal when most of it is automated. I just let each process run overnight on my PC.

OS: Windows 8 Ease: 10/10
I use VideoRedo in my workflow for transferring VHS tapes to DVD as well as preparing home movie clips from my digital camcorder. Frame accurate and no recoding make it fast and high quality.

55trucker is nearly right on the money.
There IS no support for DTS of any format as *Dan* at VideoRedo has stated in the past he has considered DTS support, but, has not done so seeing as that would require purchasing a licence from Surcode to allow him to make use of their software program to encode to DTS either 5.1 or HDMA. That would require him to raise the price of the program to make up for the licencing expense.
As for the programs problem with PID's, I too have had some problems where these are concerned, everything I use the program for is with pre-existing HD (either 1080p or 720p) Bluray mkv's or m2ts files that I am editing for a particular reason. In both of these cases the PID'S MUST be visible to Videoredo or the program will not function. If the original source that encoded the video & the audio did not create the PID's then they must be created so the program will function. Also, this program only functions when both the video & the audio are present, the program cannot function without the audio portion of the file. In my case, when working with an HD file where the audio IS DTS, I have to unencode the 6 tracks back into wav and then re-encode them to AC3, remux them back into the file so Videoredo can *see* them.
I personally convert all my work to .ts files with TSMuxer because this program DOES create the PID's and afterwards I experience no issues at all with VideoreoSuite4.
All in all, a decent program, you have to know what it needs to make it work, keeping in mind that not everyone would use this for the depth of work that I personally need it for, but, it can do the job as long as what you enter into it, it can *see*.

55trucker doesn't know what he's talking about below. H264 editing including MKV and MP4 works great. I can only assume he's using an old/outdated version.
Latest version has "H264" in the filename, because thats what it works with.
Brilliant tool, constantly developed. Most shrareware tools aren't worth the paper they're printed on but this one is one of of the few worth paying the money for. Ok, it's not cheap but what it does it does oh so well and it's worth its asking price.
Superb. One of the essential tools in my box.
Sep 17, 2012 Version: v.20.7
OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 10/10
Tried the latest beta (22.214.171.1248 beta) and when I tried to save my video I got an error that there were no profiles. Reverted back to V126.96.36.1997g and I was able to save my edited video.
