_Other Notes_

To avoid unnecessary processing or channel changes to your audio, I recommend you keep a second audio filter installed. Use one for normal everyday use and one for encoding.

For example, for normal playback I use ffdshow, which is set to output 5.1 channels, and occasionally other tweaks. If FAVC used it, a stereo source will be modified and output as 5.1 with only 2 channels active.

To fix this I added Wavi.exe to the "Don't use ffdshow in" list (under ffdshow's audio decoder configuration/DirectShow control).

With ffdshow blocked LAV Audio Decoder activates instead. I don't use LAV audio for anything else, and I have it configured with every option disabled and only the output formats checked.

Additionally, to avoid missing subtitles, text subtitles must be in ANSI format to be properly recognized. They can be converted using 'Save As' under Notepad. You may also want to do a search and replace to convert &#9834; to <s M/> so you have notes.

- incorporates simple multicore usage during video encoding.

- which has provisional support for mov, asf, wmv and avs files.

Because of recent developments with ImgBurn it is now possible to burn a DVD without first creating an iso file, saving much time. Also, TV overscan may optionally be accounted for; 16 pixels around the edge of the video will not be used if this is the case. (Works perfectly for my TV. )

with AC3 retention and the option of alternative video resolutions.

I've updated the links in the first post to to and there should be some significant changes for the better (I hope). Amongst other things the muxing and authoring behaviour has been changed so it should be more compatible with dvd players. Guess it could throw up a load of different trouble though.

added config file to remember preferences, additional video encoding options and the option of leaving temporary files undeleted.

adds .vdr support so that frameserving from VirtualDub is possible.
