    3.Converted files focus feature
    When a conversion is done, select “Destination” to open the folder with Windows Explorer, you’ll see the file(s) you just converted is (are) highlighted.


    4.Improvement of conversion performance 
    Built-in source filter and codec performance improved. Please refer to below improvements:
    ・Fixed the “when converting some of the VOB files in version and version of GOM Video Converter, it finishes converting right after it starts” problem.

    ・Fixed the problem of converting files with AMR audio in version and version of GOM Video Converter.

    ・Fixed the problem of inputting files only with FLAC audio in version of GOM Video Converter.


    5.Added Source Filter Control
    Added Source Filter Control in the configurations: using external filters (codecs) instead of GOM’s built-in filters for conversion. If you uncheck the box next to the extensions, those extensions files will not use GOM’s internal filters, but will use the external filters installed in your PC to convert files.

    The following issues have been solved:

    ・ FLAC audio files’ codecs showing “Unknown”
    ・ Speex codec (audio) showing “Unknown”
    ・Dxtory codec (video) showing “Unknown”
    ・Some files’ frame rates cannot be detected correctly, thus if converting files without changing their frame rates, the outputs  sometimes end with low bit rates.

    Fixed the “Even meets the minimum spec but due to the system environment, installation cannot be carried out correctly” issue.


    8.Added more disable filters
