Version 2.03
  • Release Date: Oct 11, 2008
  • CHANGE: K-Lite install options changed to work with AVC/AAC formats without the need for CoreAVC. This should resolve a number of encoding problems
  • NEW: When /AUTO is specified, the application will automatically exit on successful completion (returns errorcode 0)
  • CHANGE: Updated MediaInfo to v0.7.7.6
  • CHANGE: Some minor tweaks to hopefully fix up some form-related bugs

Version 2.02
  • Release Date: Sep 13, 2008
  • CHANGE: Everything has been changed to being x86 only. It’s not possible for Enc360 to work with WME9 x64, so the app is now forced to x86 mode on XP / Vista x64. This prevents against a lot of problems people have when trying to get Enc360 working on x64 platforms.

  • CHANGE: Updated K-Lite to 3.5.7
Version 2.0 RC1

  • CHANGE: Updated MediaInfo.DLL to
  • FIX: x64 Support (Thanks to balog and shlicky for assistance and fixes)
  • FIX: Encoder wasn't cleaning up after itself, leading to memory leaks and dozens of systray icons

  • FIX: If 'Output To' was a saved preference, you'd be prompted for a path every time Enc360 started, even though the path was saved too

Version 2.0 b7
  • Release Date: Jul 24, 2007
  • NEW: Installer!!!
    • Will verify that .NET 2.0 and Windows Media Encoder 9 are installed before allowing the install. Hopefully will knock a number of ‘bug’ reports on the head!

  • CHANGE: Output resolution can now be set regardless of whether you use Autoscaling or not
  • CHANGE: WMV no longer on filetype list, but can be selected through All files. This prevents against accidentally re-encoding WMVs
  • CHANGE: Updated MediaInfo to Dev Snapshot (14/07/2007)
  • CHANGE: Updated tooltips
  • CHANGE: Code Cleanup
  • FIX: ‘64 character limit’ error on encoding jobs that would take a long time

  • NEW: Ability to Drag/Drop re-order of items in the encoding list.

  • NEW: ETA on Encoding Completion (Requested by damski)
  • NEW: Shutdown PC when finished (Requested by Hitcher)
  • CHANGE: Massive internal re-write. I had been putting this off for a while, but eventually I had to do it. I've compartmentalized all of the Encoder code into a separate class and re-written huge segments. This has eliminated a HUGE amount of the codebase, and made it a lot more flexible.
  • CHANGE: Disabled .NET x86 directive. This means x64 isn't currently supported, until someone gets around to re-compiling specifically for 64-bit. Schlicky will hopefully do this over the next few days
  • CHANGE: Huge overhaul to the Aspect Ratio handling code. Now works with Non-Square Pixel videos (Thanks to Zen)
  • CHANGE: Seriously cleaned up Debug Information

  • CHANGE: An error is no longer displayed if no subtitles were found in an MKV

  • FIX: Certain audio streams returned an invalid sampling rate which caused Encode360 to bomb out
  • FIX: If Autoscale was not enabled and was a saved setting, the Output Resolution was always 0x0 unless you ticked and unticked Autoscale
  • FIX: Non-Square Pixels were always detected, even when the source video wasn't
  • FIX: Invalid duration times in a number of container formats, ie, MKV, OGM (which led to a host of other problems)

  • Output resolution said "N/A" when not autoscaling. It now correctly says the same as the Input resolution
