Version 1.3 (2021.01.29)
Updated conversion engine (FFmpeg) and multimedia information library (MediaInfo).
Information about the conversion progress is displayed on the title bar of the main window and on the taskbar.
FFmpeg encoder parameters window (F2): information has been divided into groups displayed on separate lines, which facilitates parameter analysis.
Fixed Stack overflow bug when selecting next files in the list very quickly.
Added support for files from network shares whose names start with the characters \.
The information module has been extended.
Data returned by MediaInfo is now also displayed in HTML and JSON format.
A new tab has been added with the hexadecimal dump of the first 10 KB of the examined file.
For easier identification, video streams are now highlighted in red, audio - green, subtitles - purple, chapters (menu) - blue.
Displaying the CRC32 checksum and MD5 hash of files up to 200 MB in size.
The window layout is now saved to the configuration file and restored the next time the program is started.
Displaying the output directory on the title bar of the Output panel. This directory is also displayed when the panel is collapsed, so you no longer have to expand it to see where the resulting files will be saved.
When saving the report to a text file in the File properties window, UTF-8 encoding is used (in previous versions the system default code page was used).
After the user has interrupted the conversion, the program displays a window asking whether to delete the incompletely converted file. Such files usually have a damaged internal structure and cannot be played.
If incorrect parameters are passed to the conversion engine (FFmpeg) and the conversion process fails, the output file will be automatically deleted. Such a file usually does not contain any data (0 bytes in size) and only unnecessarily litter the disk.
Displaying additional information in the error log window.
UTF-8 encoding (instead of the system code page) is used when writing the error log to a text file.
When turning on dark visual styles, the main window icons are slightly grayed out to reduce the contrast.
New About window displaying additional information.
Lots of minor changes and fixes to the source code and the program interface.
