Version 2.2 Beta
Version 2.0 Beta
- Release Date: Feb 16, 2013
- x264: high10, high422, high444 profiles added
- Fixed: Encoding fails if output format is MP4 and video codec is x264
- Fixed: Show warning if NeroAAC encoder is missing
- Fixed: X264: --qmin and --qmax defaults changed to 0 and 69
- Fixed: X264: --min-keyint changed to -1 (auto)
- Fixed: Changing frame rate does not work for x264 encoding
- Fixed: Highlight command-line in log window for mp4box
- Release Date: Feb 14, 2013
- Support has been dropped for the following encoders: LibFAAC, MEncoder, AVs2Avi
- Encoder selection has been removed. Automatic encoder selection will be used by default.
- x264 options updated:
- Default value for MinQ and MaxQ changed to 0 and 69 (previously 10 and 51)
- SubME limit updated to 11 (previously 10)
- Default value for Minimum KeyFrame interval set to 0 (auto) (previously 25)
- Default options will not be specified on the command-line in order to improve readabilty
- Fixed some avisynth-related encoding issues
- Better subtitle support - SRT/SUP/ASS/SSA/USF/IDX files can be embedded in MKV videos. SRT files can be embedded in OGV videos. The subtitle file must be placed in the same folder as the input file.
- Delayed indexing - The 'Please wait..indexing file' window will not be displayed when adding files. Indexing will be delayed till actually needed (when encoding starts). Indexing will not be done if you are not using AVS mode.
- Index files will be deleted when the application exits.
- Track compression is set to 'None' for MKV files for better device compatibility.
- Add option to disable audio when creating OGV files
- Fixed: Disable prompt for installing Haali Media Splitter on startup
- Fixed: VP8 settings were not saved
- Encoders updated: x264, ffmpeg, ffmpeg2theora
- Release Date: Aug 25, 2011
- Some DLL files were missing in the Setup package
– js32.dll (Required by MP4Box)
– DGAVCDecode.dll, libavcodec.dll (Required for encoding MTS/M2T/M2TS files using Avisynth mode)
- When a VOB file was added (in AVS mode), the video was automatically cropped and deinterlaced. This will not be done anymore. Cropping and deinterlacing must be done explicitly by setting filters.
- The provided x264 presets were loaded incorrectly. The Initial Buffer Size for 2-pass encoding was set to 0.9% instead of 90%. This was causing some 2-pass encodings to fail. This issue is fixed.
- MPlayer2 does not support playback of Avisynth files. As a result the video preview was not working in the ‘Trim’ window. Mplayer2 has been replaced with an older MPlayer version which can play Avisynth files.
- Release Date: Aug 21, 2011
Version 1.2 Beta
- Release Date: Aug 20, 2011
- The ‘Add DVD’ option in the File menu has been simplified. Now only the VIDEO_TS folder needs to be selected.
- Fixed the window layout for systems with large font sizes. Some of the controls were cut-off or hidden from view.
- The encoder log can be opened even while the file is being encoded (Double-click or use the right-click menu).
- x264: Corrected psy-trellis option to 0.15 for “Tune Film”
- Fractional quantizer values can be selected for all video codecs
- Files can be dragged on the ‘Add Combined’ window
- MTS files will be opened with DGAVC in Avisynth mode. This will eliminate stuttering/corruption issues when MTS files are encoded in Avisynth mode.
- Fix: Encoding WAV files to FLAC fails
- Fix: The installer fails to download NeroAAC codec during setup
- Multiple instances of FFCoder can now be run at the same time
- Fix: Selecting the ‘Shutdown’ option (for shutting down the PC after encoding), doesn’t work properly in Vista/Win7 due to UAC prompts. Windows commands will be used for shutdown/reboot instead of using NirCmd. Nircmd has been removed from the package.

Version 1.1 Beta
- Release Date: May 30, 2011
- Option for encoding multiple input files into a single output file (Use the ‘Add Combined’ option in the File menu)
- New window for trimming audio/video files. You seek to the nearest scene-change, and multiple segments can be selected for encoding.
- Added MPUI (an MPlayer frontend) as the default audio/video player. Removed all other players in order to reduce the size of the download package.
- New tool for correcting timestamps in SRT files. It will add a delay to the SRT file by modifying the timestamps.
- Better support for DVD ripping (Use the ‘Add DVD’ option in the File menu). You can add multiple VOB files and they will be combined into a single output file.
- Indexing will be done using DGIndex.
- Installer: Option for installing Avisynth

- The performance counter throws an exception when encoding begins.
- Adding FLAC files to the input list throws an error.
- The video preview was not displayed in the crop window on some XP systems.
- FFIndex files were not deleted on application exit even if the option is selected in the Options->Preferences window. Please note that FFCoder will remove only those ffindex files which it creates. Existing ffindex files will have to be removed manually.
- The GUI sometimes hangs while indexing the input file. This will not happen anymore.
- Setting the aspect ratio had no effect when ffmpeg was used as encoder. This issue has been fixed in the latest ffmpeg version.
