2.0.0.100 hard sub doesn't work

Files downloaded from Crunchyroll.com using Allavsoft program. Load a few MP4 files. SRT subtitles files are selected (since Allavsoft program download all languages). In my case, I select English. Using a custom profile - blu-ray output 1080p, with hard subtitles. ** Preview ** shows subtitles, but...

Cuda for ConvertXtoDVD 7

I remembered getting a reply from Claire (she no longer works for VSO) that Nvidia CUDA doesn't help with this program. The ConvertXtoVideo - it helps (when converted to Blu-ray/AVCHD format, for example), but not to a DVD format. She said it's the output file format (that a DVD uses) that the progr...

CUDA 2.0.0.93

Just downloaded and tried to make AVCHD (disk) with 2.0093. Intel i7, 32 G RAM, Windows 10 64 bit, GTX 1080 Noted 2 problems. 1 It asks for the activating code again. I entered it and it says the activating server isn't available because of no internet connection. 2 CUDA encoding is grayed out. The ...

DVD+RW 2.0092

Set to burn to disk (DVD and AVCHD format). Won't erase / format the disk if something is already on it. Option to do this checked. Even if I were to "erase" the disk with Windows, it still says it's not blank. However, I remember dear Claire saying last year that if I were to "format" the disk, it ...

AVCHD 2.0092

This version can create AVCHD 1080p (on a single layer DVD disk) and can be read with Sony and Samsung BR players. The previous version (a few versions back) - AVCHD weren't playable with either BR player. However, the bitrate is something like 0.1 MHz per second (instead of much higher, 10 to 15 MH...

Re: Normalize or boost audio?

I have never used that function, but I gave it a test earlier today. I think the normalize feature evens out the high and the low of the audio. On the other hand, if you increase the volume of the sound, it simply gets louder. I think I would just increase the volume like you have been doing (since ...

"Apply to the whole project.." in 2.0.0.91

This bug crept up a few versions ago. I found it only because sometimes I download Thai soap opera from Youtube and I want to burn a copy (DVD / blu-ray) for myself. The default language for me is English. Load a few files. This case they are in MP4. I realize that they are all in Thai, and I think ...

Bitrate not updated 2.0.0.91

Bitrate 2.0091 This is an old bug - if ignored by user, a write once disk is wasted. I am providing a workaround as follows: i7 with 32 G of RAM. Windows 10 64 bit (as of 2nd July 2018). GTX 1080. Select Blu-Ray 1080p profile. Load two MP4 files. Each one is about an hour or so. Bitrate reports (for...

Re: Re-install

The error was "used on too many machines" or something like that. I was only used one time, so I was stumped. I also tried to cut and paste another serial number/code (from another product) and it too, said used too many times (and it shouldn't be at all.) I wonder if it's the activating server that...

Re-install

I realize there are so many times the program from VSO can be reinstalled (on the same computer). I am one of those users that try different things and am actively trying to push Convert X to Video (and others) to the limits. There are times I just wipe my Windows 10 64 bit from the hard drive and i...

Re: Save ConvertXtoDVD Project

Download the latest version (or the same) and reinstall it. Choose the option(s) of clearing the settings.

I did this once a while ago.

Re: Create DVD with DTS 5.1 does not work

Dear Ira, I feel the same way too, about their products. Convert X To video produces clean blu ray and DVD (with the right settings that is..) and it works basically with all the files/formats that I have tried. SRT / ASS subtitles work well without any editing. But the program is so buggy. I don't ...

Re: Create DVD with DTS 5.1 does not work

Ira - believe me when I say that there are bugs in this programs that I find very frustrating, I simply try to find a workaround for it. This program can't produce DTS soundtrack, and it would be nice to be able to be told that (as you stated). It isn't so and that's that. The company is not doing w...

Backing up hard drive

That is why I always use a computer without a virus scanner and no internet. I use a separate computer for any internet connections. I also backup the System HDD with Acronis True Image just after I install the OS and all the software. That way I can recover my full HDD and be up and running within ...

CUDA

If you have a GTX (Nvidia) card, have you tried CUDA setting? Last few versions worked, but the current one crashes on me, so I switched to NVENC and that works. OpenCL works for me. QuickSync is too slow (I guess it's done by the CPU). Also, I set the maximum bitrate to 30,000,000. Lowering it didn...
