Version 0.98.2
  • Release Date: Dec 16, 2006
  • Made several important improvements to the authoring engine. Updated multiplexing and timing algorithms to more accurately adhere to standards.Made several bugfixes to the engine and corrected a situation in which runt VOBUs could be createdunder certain circumstances.
  • Fixed a bug related to building of the reference frame index in the NavPack.
  • Corrected a rare but possible "skipping" problem that could happen on certain players as a result of DVD-RB's handling ofsome recent HC versions.
  • Improved recognition and handling procedures for STILL frames and scene changes.Reduced the liklihood of unnecessary segment breaks.This could improve processing speed and reduce complexity.
  • Updated the encoder calling routine to enable scene detectionduring usage of HC Encoder.It defaulted to "off" in previous versions.
  • Updated the installer to include HC Encoder v0.19.1.
  • Other minor and cosmetic changes.
Version 0.98.1
  • Release Date: Oct 25, 2006
  • Added code to retry certain open statements when O/S callsreturn before the operation is truly completed.This shouldcorrect the occasional "Could not open ... file" errors thatseems happen when Kaspersky antivirus in in use on the hostsystem.
  • Updated the CCE Path detection code to verify the collectedpath names and look for variations.
  • Corrected a bug in which a certain sequence of starting,stopping, and resuming the ENCODE phase could skip one ormore segments and result in "Error in UpdateIFO" due to missing M2V file(s).
  • Corrected a bug in which the path for the HELP file was not correctly specified.
  • Added code to automatically recognize, adjust, and correct for certain types of corrupt streams.
  • Corrected a ReJig sizing error.
  • Corrected a bug in which some INF floating point entriescould be read incorrectly under some numbering systems.
  • Corrected an issue in which settings saved before a batch process may not be restored correctly at batch end.
  • Improved sizing algorithm so that it can properly account for some oddly formatted discs.
  • Fixed a rare bug related to loading of Project files.
  • Updated the installer to include HC Encoder v0.19.
  • Other minor bug and cosmetic changes
Version 0.98
  • Release Date: Sep 30, 2006
  • Added a new "Write to Blank Disc (with ImgBurn)" option under the "Mode" menu. When selected this option will, at then end of DVD file creation, automatically burn to disc using the newest version of ImgBurn. Note -- the option is only enabled if you have ImgBurn v2.0.0.0 or greater installed on your computer. ImgBurn is highly recommended and can be downloaded at
  • Corrected an error in which "garbage" data following null or padding sectors could result in unpredictable timing and/or desynchronization.
  • Added code to prevent a very rare cell transition timing anomaly that can occur when the source contains an irregularity.
  • Added code to reduce the likelihood of "Error #0006" on streams that contain embedded MPEG garbage. Also, as investigation showed that these only happen in "orphaned" MPEG sections (following "null sectors" created by a decrypter) that are never actually decoded, the error has been removed and replaced by a warning in the STATUS window/log.
  • Removed the "Special Error Processing" option. It no longer serves a purpose.
  • Improved procedures for handling sequence_end_code and still frame processing. Fixed a bug in which an end code might be incorrectly inserted under certain rare circumstances.
  • Corrected an error in which the INF first_sector and last_sector may (rarely on an oddly formatted source) be off by one sector.
  • Fixed "Runtime Error 6" that can occur during rebuild when dealing with very small M2V files under specific conditions. - Added routines to recognize and ignore extraneous files in the source directory -- including unreferenced VTSs that serve no purpose except to occupy space.
  • Added a "hidden" setting, "DISABLE_UNREFERENCED_REMOVAL". This allows you to keep unreferenced cells and VTSs if for some reason it becomes necessary. By default DVD-RB removes any video/audio that, based upon the IFOs, is not actually used on the DVD.
  • Fixed an error that could cause certain types of still pictures to not display.
  • Added code for checking and adjusting for Pan & Scan mode. This should correct the problem on certain players where BOV video appears horizontally compressed and button placement appears off.
  • Improved the layer_break recognition routines to better recognize and properly handle seamless branching titles.
  • Improved the layer_break recognition routines to more judiciously decide whether to change cell settings in the IFO.
  • Updated the installer to include QuEnc v0.71, HC Encoder v0.18, and ECLPRO v1.00 (RC1).
  • Other minor and cosmetic changes.
Version 0.97
  • Release Date: Mar 22, 2006
  • Fixed an error that, under certain circumstances, might cause video ticks or stutter at chapter or segment break points.
  • Fixed a sizing issue in which unreferenced audio streams that exist in the original VOB files were included in the output -- but weren't properly accounted for in the size calculation.
  • Corrected an error that could result in "Error 0006, Framecount differences..." when working with the null output of some ripping programs.
  • Corrected an error in which an erroneous input stream might cause DVD-RB to "hang" during PREPARE phase looking for a nonexistent extension start code.
  • Corrected an issue in which certain odd original anomalies might cause timing issues.
  • Updated the Installer to use a newer version of HC Encoder (v0.17). This file is also included in the "Update Only" zip file.
  • Updated installer to use EclPro v0.52. Includes better compatibility and support for Express versions.
  • Updated the installation package to install ReJig v0.5f. This version includes several updates that give quality improvements that were implemented by DragonGodz.
  • Fixed a sizing issue in which unreferenced audio streams that exist in the original VOB files were included in the output -- but weren't properly accounted for in the size calculation.
  • Modified the ReJig calling procedure so that DVD-RB uses less processor time during calls. This should speed up ReJig.
  • Corrected a problem in which the calculated bitrate may exceed the original and as a result make the stream incompatible with the audio on some sources. This would have shown itself as "stutter" during playback.
  • Added coding for handling "garbage" sectors that were found to have caused problems during the PREPARE phase on at least one disc. Thanks to SpazzHH for finding a disc in which it was repeatable.
  • Corrected a Button Over Video (BOV) issue. In some very active streams BOV may not have been reproduced properly.
  • Corrected an error in the REBUILD module that could misinterpret certain input streams and as a result, throw a "ERROR 006: DVD-RB...framecount differences" error.
  • Fixed a problem in which an extremely unlikely set of circumstances might cause audio to move out of sync over the course of a segment.
Version 0.96
  • Release Date: Nov 6, 2005
  • Modified code to perform more aggressive detection and removal of layer breaks.
  • Added some updates that will make DVD-RB work more reliably with the output of DVDFab Decrypter.
  • Improved calling procedure so DVD-RB does not use as much CPU time (leaving more for the encoder).
  • Corrected maximum bitrate allocation on NTSC interlaced sources in order to assure adherence to specifications.
  • Corrected an error in which source filenames that are a mixture of uppercase/lowercase letters might cause "Error 0003, buffer overflow".
  • Updated OPV code to more accurately hit the specified target size on NTSC non-telecined sources.
  • Added measures to more accurately measure bitrates in the source stream and then distributes it accordingly in the backup.
