Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
Professional Edition Version 1.28.2
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Made numerous changes to make DVD-RB more sensitive to
the security environment of Vista.

- Made changes to make DVD-RB more compatible with some
windows emulators.

- Added support for the HC adaptive quantization (*AQ)
function.This setting can improve picture in flat
parts.A default value of "2" is used, but can be
changed by setting "HC_AQ=n" in the "[Options]" area
of REBUILDER.INI."n" can be any integer value between
0 and 4."0" disables AQ and "4" results in lower
quants. Note: Keep in mind that due to virtualization
associated with VISTA, your most current INI may be
located in the VISTA VirtualStore.One easy way to
get to it (if you are using VISTA), is to create a
shortcut on your desktop that points to it.

- Added a parameter to the HC SETTINGS menu that enables
and disables LOGGING when encoding with HC encoder. The
log will be written to a file named "HCLOG.TXT" in the
working directory.

- Included HC Encoder v0.23 in the installation packages.
This version includes extended features and bug fixes.

- Added ability to have different 1st and 2nd passes when
using MOBILE encoding (see the MOBILE.INI template under
the AVCHD beta for an example.

- Added a "hidden" option called "ImgBurnDest" that, when
added to REBUILDER.INI will force the write to a specific
drive.This is expecially useful when working on a
computer that has more than one writable drive.As an
example, to force output to the "F:" drive you would add
"ImgBurnDest=F:" to REBUILDER.INI.

- Modified the TEMPLATE commands so they automatically
look in the VirtualStore for templates.

- Corrected "35601" error that could happen (very rarely)
on sources with no audio.

- Added a parameter to the REBUILDER.INI file so that an
alternate AVISYNTH resizing algorithm can be used for
certain functions (e.g. converting from 4:3 widescreen
to 16:9 anamorphic).The default is "LanczosResize".
Example usage: "RESIZE=Spline36Resize"Note: Adding
an incorrectly spelled resize parameter will cause your
encoding to fail.

- Other minor and cosmetic c

Very great and one of a kind application to utilize CCE or any other Encoders.

BUT... there are STILL issues processing ILVU (Mutiple Angled) movies through rebuilder 1.28 !!

I have adressed this issue several times at Doom9 , and it aggravates me Jdobs just do not want to accept the possibility that dvd rebuilder still might containt bugs/flaws.

By the looks of the changelog, many ILVU fixes have taken place over time actually !!

Apart from the ILVU aspect, i NEVER EVER have had an BAD encoded DVD... ASLONG it doesnt contain any ILVU cells REBUILDER is 100% reliable !

Fantastic tool. Gives excellent results when used with HC or CCE.

It has functions to steal bits from extras and compress menus. Maybe this "steal function" could also be implemented for menus.

Anyways, this program is definitely recommended!

As a long term user of the freeware version and a recent Pro version upgrader, this, used in conjunction with CCE Basic is by far a superior method to produce lower bitrate backups of my dvd's than any transcoders I've used. The difference was more obvious when moving from a smaller CRT TV to a larger HDTV. With the 6-7 to 1 cost difference of double layer blanks vs single layer blanks, I prefer this over double layer media.

I can confirm that I have now received my copy of DVD Rebuilder Pro so please ignore the comments I left below.

For a while now I've been receiving huge amounts of SPAM to my 'main' e-mail address which is the one I supplied during the donation.I usually use a program called Mailwasher to check the server before downloading e-mails to the Outlook Express inbox.I got sick and tired of seeing all the SPAM so instead I turned on an option called SpamGuard on my ISP's e-mail server.I shall never leave this option on again as it had obviously completely blocked the legit DVD-RB Pro e-mail from even landing in the trash folder because I checked it.Turned off stupid 'SpamGuard' and then I receive the download link for DVD-RB Pro!

Anyway excellent software to have in your tool collection.No more horrible pixelation due to transcoding DVD Files that indicate less than the 90% quality level using DVDShrink.I can now backup DVD Files,movie only ect... by re-encoding using DVD-RB+HC thus preserving much of the quality from the original.

Thanks jdobbs and sorry for being judgmental too soon.

The mailer will send it to you within about 10 minutes of your PayPal donation.

1. Make sure the e-mail address you have listed with PayPal is legitimate. That's where it is sent.

2. Check any anti-SPAM or junk mail folders. Some of these packages can be a little over-aggressive,.

3. If you still haven't received it -- send me an e-mail at dvd-rb@dvd-rb.com. I'll get it corrected.

I wanted to get my hands on the Pro version so I donated $29.95 using the PayPal link on their website.I received my PayPal payment confirmation e-mail straight away but am still waiting to receive any download link to my inbox for DVD-RB Pro.I've sent jdobbs an email with my Receipt Number but no response.Just sent another!

So much for what the website claims and that is 'DVD Rebuilder Professional Edition is AUTOMATICALLY delivered to your e-mail box for any donation of $29.95 or more'

Maybe I wont receive any Pro version even though I paid out.

Crap!

This is an amazing tool. I just used it to back-up a disc that contained several episodes of a TV show and it worked perfectly. I had tried DVDShrink (which I use all the time and get pretty good results with), but after removing all the unwanted items (such as extra audio tracks, etc.) the compression was still very obvious. Used DVDRebuilder to re-encode the episodes on the DVD and it came out looking terrific - pretty much the same as the original. I used the highest quality setting for the encoding (with on of the free encoders that came with it) and it took about 6 hours, so it takes a while. But for the quality it produces I'd rather let it run those 6 hours (run it at night) than sacrifice the quality using a program that takes a couple of hours but produces poor quality back-ups.

I highly recommend this tool. And the best part is..... it's FREE! Many, many thanks to the author.

Just a follow-up for all the DVDReb fanboys who wish that all the future failure on discs created by this software is the fault of the player or the media.

Sorry -- not true. I've used every recode/convert software this sight has had the grace to point me toward, and this is the ONLY software that has repeated failures on playback. This is the case in all three of my high-end DVD players -- the Panasonic 1000, the Toshiba DR2, and the Denon 3800. And I never use any media other than non-budget Taiyo Yuden.

The problem is DVD Rebuilder, and for creating DVDs which will last for years -- I still say it's junk.

jdobbs,
The problem does not and never has happened on version 0.97 and earlier. Only change in my process was moving to DVD-RB version 0.98.x. Therefore the defect is in your 0.98.x version program. It is something 99.9% of your users never experience because they do full backups of episodic dvd's.

winny,
I choose to put no more than three 45 minute episodes on my dvd backups to reduce compression needs and get the "Play-All" feature provided by TmpGenc DVD Author.

Don't misunderstand, this is an EXCELLENT program, but it does have a problem compared to 0.97 and earlier in my particular circumstance.

I've tried to not comment, as this kind of thing has a tendency to get out of hand.

Unfortunately the poster gkar doesn't mention that his trouble report also stated that the "skipping" error has never occurred on a single commercial disc backup... only on those that he has created using TMPEGEnc.

I've tried to make it clear to DVD Rebuilder users on the official forum at DOOM9 that when you choose to preprocess material with other packages, you also accept the risk involved in that decision. Authoring and editing packages are very powerful and often leave a lot of "discretion" to the person using it. That fact makes it impossible to determine whether a problem is caused by DVD-RB, the original source, the authoring package, or the person using the package. Sometimes even what appears to be a "working" source might still have timing or header issues that make further processing virtually impossible.

As those who know me will attest, I ALWAYS respond to reported issues in DVD-RB. But I also have to be reasonably sure the problem reported is actually related to DVD-RB.

Simply the best. Not sure why other poster would reauthor when Rebuilder can do everything with one click.

I would recommend the full version to everyone without hesitation, and the support from the author deserves a special mention.

Version 0.98.2 exhibits same audio sync/video skipping problem that existed on 0.98 and 0.98.1 when re-authoring with TmpGenc 1.5 (played from hard disk first and didn't waste a disk this time). This problem did not exist on versions 0.97 and earlier. Burnt up over 2 hours to find out (again). Apparently it is too rare a problem for the author to spend time to correct. Gave it a "1" overall because it has deteriorated over the last 3 versions even after reporting the problem. Glad I didn't buy it.

I have a similar problem as GKar. The resulting file seems to be OK when played from the file on the hard drive. After burning onto a DVD and play on a standalone DVD player, it skipped during portions of the movie. I tried with both HC Encoder and QuEnc but still see the same problem. I don't see anything wrong the file itself because it plays well with I used DVDShrink. I don't recall having such a problem with an earlier version, v0.97 and I thought the problem was with my DVD Player. I may have to go back to v0.97 to see. Before reading the post by GKar, I thought the problem was unique to my setup. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to pin point anything to be of help.

I had to go back to version 0.97 because of a bug in 0.98.x which causes an audio sync/skipping problem (with 3 different encoders) when re-authoring episodic DVD's with TmpGenc DVD Author 1.5.x. Reported the problem. Have not noticed a bug fix yet.

Sorry dude,you are 100% wrong.This is the best program for backing up dvd's available.Your setup/equipment is at fault.I have never had a failure with this program since it's inception,and all dvd players play the backed up dvd's.Cheap media,burn software,or burner are the most likely causes of your problems.

Seriously this is the one tool that I can say I have paid for, then received and get offered help for, etc etc. This is the one program that I love. You must have had some hardware/software issue with it that is causing you system to crap out. Sorry bud this program is awesome you need to check up on the forums, either here or on his official site. For example I was having an issue many many months ago some conflict with random Avisynth scripts or something, once I posted on the forums not only did have advice from fellow DVD-RB users but JDobbs himself walked me through fixing my issue now everything works fine again. Furthermore my issue was so problematic that he then added in his setup the correct file to use so no one else would have to suffer. Dude don't diss this one, cause We'll kill you. (kidding...mostly.)

i agree. this program is BRILLIANT. i was only using programs like dvd shrink but for the last year or so i have been using dvd rebuilder with NO compat problems at all.

must be your hardware or media that is junk. also just because your dvd players are top end does not mean it can not be a problem with them. i have had about a dozen dvd players and oftem found the really cheap ones to play more stuff than the top end ones.

both thumbs up for dvd rebuilder. keep up the good work!!!

Dude i disagree... That is the best program to rebuild your dvd. Personally i think it is your hardware or media that is JUNK. If you have to redo your dvd then it your burner or media, the program has nothing to do with it.

Junk.

Yes, that's right -- junk. I know how "cool" the creator is. And yeah he's attached 141 other programs to it. So what? The problem here is compatibility. I have 3 state of the art DVD players at home, and I've created DVDs using CCE, TMPEGenc, CovertToDVD, FilmMachine, DIKO, Canopus, etc and DVDRebuilder is the only one that usually does not play after the 2-week encoding procress is finished. Or, if it does play initially, it winds up failing a week or a month down the road.

At least the name is correct -- 'cause after you finish with this program, you have to Rebuild your disc with something else.

Tried using this application on a chapter ripped (using DVDShrink 3.2) from a DVD (with no encryption). Video size is 497MB, audio is
LPCM 2-ch with size 120MB.

Encoder is CCE SP 2.70

Using 0.981 selecting audio and subtitle, DVD Rebuilder created a dvd with audio and subtitle, but without the video. Video was a image stating MPEGSource error.

A friend of mine used his Pro version 1.20.0 on the same chapter.
Using the same encoder the DVD Rebuilder result was a DVD with video and subtitle, but now without the audio.

A final test using a video with AC3 audio was successful, but as LPCM 2-ch is a standard DVD audio format, this application fails.

i've used DVDShrink ever since ive been backing up my DVD's, but ive heard so many good things about DVD Rebuilder, so i thought id give it a try. i must say that the pro version is well worth it. it has so many more options to tweak the video to your liking, and i think its needed to actually produce a great picture. i also think that unless you are willing to learn all the advanced options, youre better off just using a transcoder, like DVDShrink.

With movies that have a lot of noise, i find the basic settings in DVD Rebuilder just dont cut it. without using the advanced settings, like adding filters, and using the matrices, the overall picture can actually look worse than your average transcoder like DVDShrink.

i've been doing MANY tests on the movie Gladiator, and the first few minutes of the movie have a lot of noisy scenes. using CCE SP, 3 pass VBR with no advanced settings tweaked, the picture did look more detailed and sharp compared to DVDShrink's output, but CCE added so much more noise and macroblocking, that i actually found DVDShrinks output was better. using the QLP matrix, and the undot avisynth filter made the picture much better than before. so this is just an example of the need to learn the advanced settings.

I've been using DVD-RB for several months. If you wish to do complete backups, or have large movie files, this program can certainly produce impressive results. ProCoder 2.0 has been my encoder of choice, although CCE or the other encoders (free, included) work fine. Overall quality is excellent.

The only issues that I've had were with the early versions: I did have one or two DVDs that had the wrong audio track (my bad), and had a few backups that would not read in DVD-RB due to read errors.

I did donate my $10 early, and do not regret it at all!

I only gave it a 4 on ease of use, because I feel that you MUST work with this program to get everything set up right - once done, it's easy enough. As to the issue of encoding time, I have built a set of "twins" to allow encoding on one dedicated machine, and everything else on the other. I just felt the quality of the finished DVD was worth the extra cost, especially when I can throw a machine together for a couple of hundred bucks (I'm not a gamer, so the machines that I build are "mules" - fast enough processor, stable video and board, and as much RAM as I can afford - or the board can hold).

If you are satisfied with DVD Shrink - keep using it: I still do, expecially if I'm looking at 90% quality and saving 5 hours, LOL..

My hat is off to JDobbs for an excellent program.
