Complete Version history / Release notes / Changelog / What's New for RipBot264

Added: Work Hours (automatic encoding within selected hours)
Added: Automatic track name extraction
Added: VP9 decoding
Changed: Script won't be re-analyzed if there was no change
Changed: Multiple jobs can be now removed at once
Fixed: Correct colorimetry for DVD sources (ntsc->smpte170m,pal->bt470bg)
Fixed: --ctu,--mrange,--min-keyint,--keyint switches won't be automatically inserted to command line if user specified own values for those options
Fixed: Output speed option not working correctly with FLAC files
Fixed: Typo in encoding command line if "Use Fast First Pass in 2-pass mode" was unchecked

Changed: Native BDSup2Sub is now used by RipBot264 for subtitle manipulation instead of JAVA version (Java environment is no longer required by RipBot264!)
Fixed: KNLMeansCL [Adaptive] not working with 10bit sources
Fixed: EnhanceFineDetails script not working with 10bit sources
Fixed: Bitrate/size not calculated correctly if user added custom audio profile in Audio.txt
Fixed: Preview not working due to misconfiguration of mpc player
Fixed: Missing multi-channel audio profiles in 3rd audio tab

Added: EncodingClient combines chunks with output file on fly as soon as they are encoded in correct order
Added: Option in EncodingClient to suspend jobless server
Added: Option in EncodingClient to shutdown server at IDLE state
Added: Audio profiles in ProfileAudio.txt
Added: Variable priority mode to EncodingServer.
In this mode EncodingClient will be automatically changing encoding priority in order to balance progress on multiple servers running on the same machine.
Added: EncodingClient now also shows encoding priority set on server side ,selected encoding numa node and communication delay.
Added: Support for GPU decoding via lsmash plugin
Added: HDR HLG support
Changed: DGHable tonemapper to BT2446. Furthermore BT2446 has been configured to emulate MadVR's tonemapping.
Changed: lsmash is now a default decoder for all formats.
Fixed: EncodingClient is now copying file to shared folder in buffered mode.
Windows disables buffered write if write buffer in application is higher than 16MiB.
Because of this write buffer has been reduced from 64MiB to 16MiB.
Buffered write significantly reduces copy time on machine with huge amount of RAM.
Fixed: Excessive flickering of encoding status in EncodingClient
Fixed: EncodingServer not starting on some Xeon machines with high number of threads.
Fixed: Few minor bugs found since last version.

Added: Two new options in RipBot264.ini (RunCommandSuccess,RunCommandError).
Example: RunCommandSuccess="C:Some FolderYourProgram.exe" /some_switches %JOB%
Runs specified command when a job is finished.
Added: CPU utilization graph in EncodingServer and in EncodingClient.
Added: KNLMeansCL [Adaptive] denoiser. (denoising strength is being reduced according to luminosity of the pixel)
Added: /server-name , /avisynth-prefetch-threads and /knlmeanscl-opencl-device-type to supported switches by EncodingServer.exe.
Added: /restart-if-no-progress switch also activates extra process (SuperviseProcess.exe) in order to detect any hangs directly in EncodingServer.exe.
(logs are stored in %TEMP%SuperviseProcessLog.txt and %TEMP%EncodingServerLog.txt)
Added: Auto reconnect option in EncodingClient.exe
Changed: /knlmeanscl-opencl-device to /knlmeanscl-opencl-device-id and /x264-opencl-device to /x264-opencl-device-id
Changed: EncodingClient no longer re-indexes video file.
Fixed: EncodingServer.exe not starting on machines with more than 32 logical processors.
Fixed: Instability in EncodingServer on some machines.

Added: Option to bind EncodingClient to specific IP
Added: Commandline switch to bind EncodingServer to specific IP (for example EncodingServer.exe /IP
Added: Commandline switch for EncodingServer /restart-if-no-progress (automatically restarts stalled encoding task)
Changed: Audio and Video streams are now indexed simultaneously.
Fixed: Various bugs reported since last major version

Added: Better queue management
Added: support for commandline switches in EncodingServer.exe
(/minimize , /port , /node , /affinity , /priority , /x264-opencl-device and /knlmeanscl-opencl-device)
Example: EncodingServer.exe /minimize /port 2000 /node 2 /affinity AAAA /priority low /x264-opencl-device 0 /knlmeanscl-opencl-device 1
EncodingServer will start in tray and start listening using port 2000.
Encoding task will be assigned to NUMA node 2 with affinity mask for CPU1,CPU3,CPU5,CPU7,CPU9,CPU11,CPU13,CPU15 in low priority.
Futhermore x264 opencl will be set for first device and KNLMeansCL filter for second device.

Added: Preffered audio language option
Added: HDR to SDR conversion directly in script (no bottleneck if used with prefetch)
Added: Automatic pre-indexing of all audio streams after demuxing
Added: support for PRORES as input format.
