  • Preparation - Preparing AVCHDCoder for a major technical improvement like: Better logging, better progress information, better process handling, error handling and converting all AVCHDCoder features into reusable modules. This way I can add even more features in the future like: seperate audio conversion tooling, mkv tooling etc. The first result of this improvement will be improved blu-ray support (mpls playlists that are shorter than 15 minutes currently are not shown)

  • Possible Fix - When DTS 768/755 is the source and you select Untouched, the target can get slightly to big.

    • Changed - Installer is now 35% smaller. Now there is only support for 8 items on a disc (removed the other 24). This means the installation itself is also 375MB smaller. If you need more items you can download the menu pack to get support back for 32 items on 1 disc.
