CHANGED: When selecting "Don't care about size" AutoMKV will not do anything, just on status bar "Don't use Automatic Width. It's a waste of time with Unlimited File Size."
CHANGED: On Zune profile all audio is now WMAPRO.
CHANGED: How AutoMKV will compute Height. Now the calculus are very precise and corrected to AR (i hope...)
CHANGED: AutoMKV can now handle delay audio in several ways. The default is to use DelayAudio in Soundout (as MeGeui) (AutoMKV will silently switch to Fix in Mux if audio is "copy original") (a precius suggestion by valnar). Or can Use DelayCut or can fix the delay in mux (as AutoGK)
CHANGED: In case of broken audio encoding AutoMKV will not try to use SoundOut but will pipe from ffmpeg to audio encoder. Due to inability of many encoders and bugs of FFmpeg.exe, AutoMKV will trigger a directly encoding made by FFmpeg

0.90 Full Package 13/09/2007

ADDED: PGCDemux and DvdDecrypter support. Reworked how episodic dvd is engaged.
the ripping will be done by dvddecrypter, in case of "difficult" ripping i suggest to use ripit4me or dvdfabdecrypter (after this you can mount the iso to simulate "dvd to rip")
On PGC list select your pgc (episode) and DVDDecrypter will rip only this pgc
If selected the first pgc, dgindex will start directly, else PGCDemux will "demux" the selected pgc and this will be used for encoding
Don't strip audio from dvd or dgindex will be fouled when demuxing audio tracks!
ADDED: CFilter folder in exe folder. In this folder put plugin that need LoadCPlugin (like yadif)
ADDED: VirtualDubPlugins in exe folder. In this folder put VirtualDub plugins that want to load (example DeLogo.vdf). The filter will be loaded as this (for example) LoadVirtualDubPlugin("c:VirtualDub-1_4_10pluginsdelogo.vdf","delogo"), attention to filter name "delogo". The filter name is based on plugin name!. So if plugin is called "awesome_deinterlacer.vdf" the filter will de called "awesome_deinterlacer". To use DeLogo plugin (and other virtualdub plugins) remember to converto rgb32 before. like this ConvertToRGB32.delogo(1, "500-999", "D:/2.bmp", "D:/2.bmp", "D:/1.bmp", "D:/2.bmp", 34, 56, 0,0).ConvertToyv12(interlaced=true) , apply this string to Last line avs string or base.avs

ADDED: Check , in Advanced profile editing, for allowing third pass with x264 (suggestion by 3ngel)
ADDED: In Advanced Settings "Hide Subs". This option is to use only for mkv container and will force player to not show subtitle
ADDED: Option to force first pass with the same value as second pass. Check "HQ first pass" in Advanced profile editing (suggestion by 3ngel)

ADDED: In XviD profiles added a new option <muxing> (if used only for avi container). This option can be valorized as: <muxing>auto</muxing> or <muxing>avi10</muxing> or <muxing>opendml</muxing>. On auto will be AutoMKV to select the better muxing, on avi10 will be forced the AVI 1.0 mux, on opendml will be forced OpenDML muxing
ADDED: To Queue and to save settings the pgc check
ADDED: On "Audio wasn't encoded properly" now AutoMKV will ask for continue or quit. The question is "timed", so after 120 seconds AutoMKV will continue, even if the muxing would be broken
ADDED: "Use DirectShowSource for Audio" to Save Setting and Queue
ADDED: Preset PAR to WMV encoding, the value of <pixelratio> could be
10:11 for DV NTSC fullscreen
40:30 for DV NTSC widescreen 40:33
12:11 for DV PAL fullscreen 12:11
16:11 for DV PAL widescreen 16:11
ADDED: AutoMKV will check for NeroAACEnc presence and if not found will offer the possibility to download (will simply start default browser on official Nero Digital Audio page)
ADDED: Command line help will be invoked even by -? (suggestion by Demeragon) (and by "/?" "?" "--?" "-help" "--help")
ADDED: Support for SoundOut. BePipe will be no more used. No more need of .NET Framework. Look at
ADDED: SoundOut need that libsndfile-1.dll is in program path. On first start AutoMKV will ask to copy into c:windowssystem32 . Click YES button or Audio would be not encoded
ADDED: AutoMKV will save for every job its xml profile, so will be possible to "Use this profile" with queue. I hope to not break anything...
ADDED: "Original" in WIDTH selection. If selected "Original" the resizer will switch to NONE
FIXED: MP3 will support only official preset bitrate: 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 160, 192, 224, 256, 320, also removed quality encoding, will remain ABR (default) and CBR encoding
FIXED: Coding Tech. AAC will be able to encode only up to 2ch (DPL II, DPL, Stereo, Mono). For encoding with AAC audio up to 5.1 Channel use Nero AAC Audio encoder

FIXED: AutoMKV will double count the size of audio on TS files (thanks to Prospero424)
FIXED: Better ToolTip for "Adjust CRF Profile". This option is to use only in conjuction with CRF profile and HIT MEDIA SIZE
FIXED: More robust use of XviD CQ profile and Hit Media Size
