Release for Windows
2013, December 10th

Posted by Starbuck
DVDx 4.1 is a long term ambitious project, all features migth be available in 2014. So several Preview Releases are planned, first one is which comes with full-featured Blu-ray/HD-DVD/DVD ripper & transcoder and integrated video player.

New Preview Release is planned next month to offer the media converter, which will allow users to transcode video files, particularly MKV files coming from previous ripping.



DVDx 4.1 is an all-in-one DVD and Blu-ray copier as well as a powerful audio/video transcoder. Not just a media transcoder and DVD/Blu-ray copier, DVDx 4.1 includes an easy-to-use video editing toolset and a full-featured DVD and video player, you can play DVDs, Blu-ray discs and almost any audio or video files.

MPEG-2 encoding:
- added 2 new profiles: CVD (China Video Disc) and DVD (default DVD-LP, 6000Kbps) both with audio 48kHz which must be set in Input Settings dialog.
- set CVD/DVD GOP to 18 frames for NTSC (15 for PAL), so compliant with DVD authoring applications.

WMV encoding:
- fix charches due to pointer bugs in handling IWM inyterfaces.

- fixed bug in About dialog box which caused DVDx to crash in Debug/DebugP4 and unpredictable effects in all versions (Release/Release_RipperFree/NoOptim)

SIMD (SSE2) optimizations:
- replaced MOVQ xmm,m64 (rejected by VC9 compiler) with MOVQ xmm,qword ptr m64 and MOVQ m64,xmm with MOVQ qword ptr m64,xmm

Audio MP3 encoder:
- nLame.dll 3.98.2 (Intel 10.1 compile)
- libmmd.dll 10.1 (Intel 10.1 compile)

- moved to complete Microsoft Platform (no more Intelcompiler required) with Visual Studio 2008 Professional and Microsoft C++ Compiler VC9, and WMFSDK is from Platform SDK 6.0A
- set Microsoft VC9 compiler speed optimization flags

Debug builds:
- thanks to the new compilation platform, both Debug and DebugP4 configurations can be build again (all available in Ultra Edition installer).
- removed useless configurations: DebugP4 and NoOptim.

- added sponsored Ask bar with required EULA and uninstall instructions in the application (uninstall icon in DVDx start program menu).

User's documentation:
- added uninstall instructions in the FAQ.

What's new in 2.10

Shutdown computer when job is done:
- added this option in Settings menu so it can be changed during encoding
- added a count-down dialog that allows the user to cancel within 30 seconds
- added a checkbox option to get a shutdown count-down silent or beeping

Input settings dialog window:
- a little enlarged vertically for more readability and to add the new option
to get a silent or beeping shutdown count-down

WMV encoding:
- added volume splitting feature (which wasn't done yet for WMV format)
- fixed encoding by chapter feature (each volume was limited to 5 seconds)
- added new widescreen profiles for Archos Generation 4- added more explicit error messages when begin writing the WMV output file

AVI codec settings:
- fixed the 'wrong settings block for AVI video codec' warning message on DivX
2-pass encoding when using video tab codec parameters
- headers file added in AVI_LIB from Xvid 1.1.3 vfw module (config.h, xvid.h and vfwext.h)
- change output estimation for Xvid

- added some menu items in language files: Preview aspect, 4/3, 16/9, Free,
Shutdown when finished
- modified RefreshLanguage() method of main window (CMpeg_encodeDlg)

Release Name: DVDx 2.9

Improved AVI (DivX/Xvid) multipass GUI behavior:
- now Estimated size is also available for AVI (DivX and Xvid only) and is accurate,
if multipass is set: the DivX 2nd pass bitrate or the Xvid desired size is used.
- if audio is Lame, audio bitrate is correctly taken into account to compute the
Estimated size.
- now correctly set 1st and 2nd pass with appropriate settings display (formerly
settings where stored and used correctly but display was messed up).
- when checking/unchecking Enable 2nd pass button, the codec dialog window is opened
once for one-pass and twice for 2-pass encoding (with message helpers displayed).
- ensure DivX or Xvid is selected for multipass (so avoid setting multipass for
codecs which don't support multipass encoding).

- update compilation platformwith DirectX SDK February 2007 and WMSDK11 which provides
Windows Media Video 9 Advanced Profile codec compliant with the published SMPTE VC-1
standard and Windows Media Audio 10 Professional codec quality improved at lower bit rates.
- hack shobjidl.h in Platform SDK R2 to skip SHCOLSTATE, SHCOLUMNID and LPCSHCOLUMNID
on __shtypes_h__ definition (newer definitions in WMSDK11), it's required to compile
ProfileObject.cpp successfully.

Release Name: DVDx 2.8

- extended Windows Media support, now the WM audio/video profile is fully
editable and can be saved or loaded from standard PRX file. You can now
create movies for your Windows based Smartphone and PDA as well as upscale
DVD video to high-definition video thanks to WMV HD-Video.
- WM predefined profiles: Film small and standard screen, Pocket PC standard
and widescreen, CD-sized for PAL/NTSC standard and widescreen movies, PAL and
NTSC computer low and medium file size, PAL/NTSC HDTV 720p.
- multipass (2-pass encoding)) isn't supported yet for Windows Media. So
audio VBR 2-pass format aren't populated in the format combobox list and
video constrained VBR neither.
- uncompressed streams aren't supported yet, so the check boxes are disabled
in the WM profile setting window.

- updated MAX_ITEM from 100 to 120 to allow more than 100 error items.

- modified SkComboBox control to allow more drop list items (required to
display 232 Windows Media Audio formats). Previously limited by a RECT[50]
array, now we use a CArray (MFC) collection to dynamicaly allocation an
unlimited number of drop list items in skinnable combo box.
- added new EnableFullText method to SkEdit control (which was limited to
0-9 and . and -) in order to enable full text edition in this control (full
text is restricted to aA..aZ, 0..9, space and .:*-+).
- added EnableUnsignedInteger method to SkEdit control to get a more
restrictive behavior, limiting inputs to positive integer entries.

What's new in 2.7
Third-party DLLs:

nLame.dll 3.97 Final (Intel 9.1 compile)
libmmd.dll 9.1 (Intel 9.1 compile

GUI enhancements:

Changed Open DVD root menu behavior, now display a Windows XP new syle file explorer dialog, initialized with last directory used by DVDx. Thus it's no longer annoying to change DVD drive for multiple drive computers or multiple DVDs ripped on hard drive.
Now display MPEG (VOB) file name without path in the MPEG2 file scanning progress window (required for long path current for DVDs ripped on hard drive).

What's new in 2.6
- Ultra Edition now contains a Tools menu with all DVDx binaries (Debug, DebugP4, NoOptimization and RipperFree), so any user will able to run a debug version to tackle bugs.
- Ripper Free package has no change.
- No upgrade package is deprecated (not popular).

Bug fix:
- DVDx silently crashes when exiting Input Settings with 44.1KHz or 48.0KHz(no conversion) option. So now you can try these modes to workaround audio/video synchronization issues.

Debug builds:
- thanks to the new compilation platform, both Debug and DebugP4 configurationscan be built.

- update compilation platform to Visual Studio 2005 Professional (VS8) and Intel C++ Compiler 9.1
- new reference compilation platform is Visual C++ 2005 Pro with Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2, DirectX SDK October 2006, Intel C++ 9.1.28

- Added new item in lang_eng.txt
- Translated new item in other language files. 6. Coding & Compilation:
- Fixed some hidden bugs which cause unexpected behaviour during video decoding and conversion.

Release Name: DVDx 2.4

- Release executable is optimized for Intel Pentium 4, Intel Pentium M, new Intel Pentium 4 with Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSE3) and compatible Intel processors (new AMD Athlon 64 support SSE3)
- Internal encoders not changed, but now compiled by new Intel 9.0 compiler for the official binary release, likely more reliable and faster (DVDx 2.4 is faster than DVDx 2.3: VCD +15%, SVCD +10%, DivX +5% on SSE3 processors and VCD +12%, SVCD +5%, DivX +5% on SSE2 processors)

- Changed File menu and added ? (help) menu in respect with usual Windows GUI standards and to add support and web site links
- Added Guide, FAQ and Support Forum in help menu
- Added "Check new version" in help menu
- Use ASPI is now disabled by default
- Changed display of disabled items in menu bar (nicer in default skin)

Language files:
- Renamed two language files to lang_danish and lang_polski
- Added some (english) items in all languages to be translated now or later

- Removed/Re-Added RES files with proper binary type to fix icons/bitmaps corrupted in Source-Forge CVS repository
- Corrected all CRLF issues in text files

- Corrected some bad afx_msg declarations (LRESULT instead of wrong 'void') which were reported by new VC8 compiler (return 0 for LRESULT as usual)
- Added mpeg_encode.h as include for other VC projects in the VC worksapce to handle errors (errors.h) and for P4.h, malloc_16.h, Memory.h, resource.h
- Changed some loop index variable declarations to fix variable scope errors reported by new VC8 compiler in some "for ()" statements
- Added pragmas to disable some warnings in new VC8 compiler
- Changed syntax sqrt(2) to sqrt(2.0) to force float casting in overloaded functions required by VC8 compiler
- Changed coder info ( into contact info (

- Added new Inno ISS script to create an installer for "no upgrade" versions which are installed in their own folder (to run several versions for benchmaking) however the separate versions share the same DVDx registry key to store settings (now requiring to activate Inno ISS scripting)

- Update compilation platform to VC Toolkit 2003 and DX9
- New reference compilation platform is Visual C++ 6.0 Pro with Service Pack 5, Visual C++ Processor Pack 5, DirectX SDK February 2006, VC Toolkit 2003, Intel C++ 9.0.28 (required for debug with DirectX 9)
