Version history / Release notes / Changelog / What's New

The changes between the versions 3.1.0 and 3.0.1 are:
* New: The MPEG Stills encoder can now auto-rotate images according to the "Orientation" EXIF information (you can turn ON/OFF this option in the "General" settings page)
* Updated: The "Supported CD writers" list has been updated (84 CD writers added)
* Improved: Better support of the MPEG audio files
* Improved: Double clicking the MPEG files list now opens the Add Files dialog
* Improved: There are now two separate multiple select buttons for the timeout in the "Interactivity" page: one for the timeout duration and one for the timeout file. Before that, it was not possible to change the duration for several items in one step without overwriting the timeout file at the same time...
* Improved: The default timeout duration in the "Interactivity" page is a preference in the "Options" page.
* Improved: Some compliance tests for the MPEG files have been added.
* Fixed: The Access violation at address 0226246D has been fixed (this happened for a few users having "Stadocks Object Desktop")
* Fixed: Other minor problems have also been fixed.

Couldn't use it. :( Under Windows 7 Home Edition it keeps telling me to install the Windows Media Player, well THAT IS installed and working just fine on my system, tried using the other option in the software to install an older version, got the same dad-blasted error. So if I can't run it, I can't use it and I sure wouldn't upgrade to the paid version before I could see if I could even use this software, which I can not do because it wants something installed that's already INSTALLED and WORKING on my system. So that's why the 1 star rating I gave it. Completely useless software, even for free, this wasn't worth the download, time or aggravation that I had to go and try and find a fix to make it work, looked, found nothing. Goodbye VCD-Easy, turned out to be VCD ZERO in my book!

If anyone is interested I found old version at the site below. The link is a third party down loader assist tool similar Cnet and SourceForge and it downloads "VCDEasy_v1.1.4_Setup.exe" 8.93 MB (9,370,115 bytes). Installed on Win7 64bit but asking for WMP which I do have installed. Works fine on my XP VMware.

While the software is great, the authors changing it from "always being free", to having to pay was, at the least, dishonest. I am currently making my own open sourced (BSD licensed) "VCD equivlent of Adobe Encore".

Oops, I meant to say that I'm using version 1.1.4 in my previous review. Its freeware and works great with Win 98 SE instead of which causes problems and won't convert jpgeg or bmp to mpeg.

Review by cinnamon on Feb 21, 2006 Version: 1.1.4 OS: Win98 Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

People using last freeware (? did I get that right?) version of VDC Easy under Win 98 SE and running into the "[mpeg2enc] Could not read YUV4MPEG2 header : system error (failed read/write)!" problem may want to use older freeware version (?) of the program instead. It is fully compatible with Win 98 SE, and requires no modification. It took a little digging but I did find it on the net. That solved the YUV4MPEG2 header problem i.e. it didn't happen. I was surprised at how difficult it was to find older freeware versions of this program.

Since I've got the older program I've been able to convert jpeg to mpeg and make SVCDs.

The tutorials here and at the VDC Easy website are essential to understanding how to use this program, particularly if you want to make SVCDs with playback control menus. Otherwise, I found the program a little obtuse without any directions, particularly with regard to the program settings. I also had to set my cd burner under the options in the program to a generic driver to get it to work consistantly, but that may just be my Que! CDRW.

I was able to convert jpeg and bmp to mpeg stills, and make SVCDs! Neat, maybe I'll upgrade to the full version but only if its fully compatible with my old laptop. Freeware is Good!
