  • Automatic aspect ratio signaling added for DivX, that mean it's supported for all codecs now
  • DivX is the only application I don't host myself. StaxRip links to the download provided at divx.com. The reason is it's 15 MB big. Unfortunately there are silent updates very often.

Version 1.0.0.2
  • Release Date: Jan 7, 2008
  • StaxRip is now distributed with a installer checking if .NET framework 3.5 is installed. Unfortunately it wasn't possible to make the auto updater of the old version beware of setup versions so the first setup version has to be downloaded manually

  • The size menu in the main window has new default values allowing to set the size/bitrate based on a quality of 40/50/60/70/80% which can be useful for codecs with multipass better tuned then quality mode. StaxRip will offer to reset this setting.
