Version history / Release notes / Changelog

January 27th, 2016 - v0.50.23
- Added three more supported CODECs to the import capability (HFYU, LAGS, and ULY2). Automatic conversion to AVC will occur during import.
- Made changes to the way VFR is handled on import. Now it is converted, during import, to CFR. Avoids annoying desync, and makes handling much cleaner.
- Added new hidden option. IMPORT_VFR_FILM (see HIDDENOPTS.TXT) allows you to choose between importing VFR sources to FILM or VIDEO (23.976/29.97 fps) rates.
- Added new hidden option. IMPORT_VFR_SCAN (see HIDDENOPTS.TXT). Sometime MediaInfo does not catch a VFR source. This option tells BD-RB to perform a complete scan of all frame timecodes in a source file to look for VFR. Especially useful when you can't get a file's audio to sync during import because VFR isn't detected. It can add a couple minutes to import time.
- Corrected an issue in which importing to an existing import folder could result in previous PSEUDO settings remaining even if they no longer apply.
- Fixed an issue that remained in v0.50.21 in which a 3D source feature that is flagged for the base view to be the right picture was not carrying over when outputting to a non-ALTERNATE movie-only structure. The result would be an apparent swapped left/right picture.
- Corrected an error introduced in v0.50.22 that forced VFR to CFR conversion during import.
- Updated the included version of mkvextract and mkvmerge to v9.7.1.
- 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!?

Jan 29, 2016 Version: 50.12 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

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.

Sep 20, 2015 Version: 0.50.08 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 6/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value for money: 5/10 Overall: 6/10

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.
