Re: All Contents Deleted

Not the best help to offer, but in future save your projects to a different folder All the converter did was delete everything in the named folder. It didn't know you saved the project files to your desktop Go to the settings option, and then choose output folder in the list that appears and create ...

Re: Memory leak with large projects ?

Further to my other request, I did manage to find an option to allow each file to have its own bitrate set But its not easy to find unless you click on the video file, then choose the video editor, then click the video track and only then do you get to see the 'quality advisor' and change the bitrat...

Re: Memory leak with large projects ?

Ran a batch of 13 episodes after restarting computer and turning multiple GPU encoding option on and a single encode operation, not a single issue. Batch completed very quickly, returning around 400FPS Tried again after restarting computer with same batch and running 3 encode tasks with multiple GPU...

Re: Memory leak with large projects ?

I'm using the very latest 1.1.1.10 I'll get back to you on seeing if the memory leak is still there, but according to the task manager the video converter is using about 600MB when doing an encode and the free memory gradually drops the more encodes are run in a project But, free memory is not retur...

Re: Suggestion : Maximum filesize in custom profiles

Many thanks, but what about an option that enables you to set the maximum filesize. I agree the percentage suggestion is awkward as there are too many variables That way the bitrate is worked out from that filesize, something similiar that is used in your blu-ray/dvd ripper software if you choose a ...

Re: Memory leak with large projects ?

More updates on the issues with large batch projects .... The project is converting PAL/NTSC video to a slightly smaller filesize, about 35% smaller with the same source resolutions and recoding the audio to 5.1 channel, 64bits per channel If I use the GPU to process each file, and try to do process...

Suggestion : Maximum filesize in custom profiles

Is it possible to add a couple of extra options to control roughly what the maximum filesize will be and also an option to set what percentage of the original filesize the output file will be, that way the bitrate will be set to try and match the filesize or percentage you specified in the custom pr...

Re: Memory leak with large projects ?

I've run a big batch this morning of about 50 files to remux to MKV from 7 full DVD rips of episodes (cartoon really so not very long episodes), increased the minimum memory in the video converter settings to 1024 (1GB) free and it seems to have worked I still have almost zero memory available once ...

Memory leak with large projects ?

Following on from my post about there being a batch option but its all put into one folder so treated as a single batch project, I may have found a memory leak or memory issue with the video converter As I'm in the process of ripping and doing an MKV remux to put DVDs/blu-ray episode disks and Disne...

Batch Mode - Is there a way to add multiple files/folders

I'm looking to add multiple DVD rips so I can run the conversion overnight, instead of at present one folder/file at a time I'm converting our DVD/blu-ray episode discs to MKV format just using straight muxing to MKV to put onto out mediaplayer to reduce the amount of discs cluttering the shelves.

Re: Beta coming soon - Suggestions

Just a few, which people will probably ask for once the beta is out 1) CUDA/OpenCL. People will always ask for this now 2) Ability to import profiles from Blu-Ray/DVD Ripper 3) Batch processing built-in. Please 4) AviSynth support, or at least the ability to import .avs scripts 5) Filters. Even hand...

Method - How to create a simple batch process

I use MakeMKV, but it has one big downfall in that there is no batch conversion so thought I'd have a try with Ultimate DVD Ripper and after a few minutes came up with this simple batch method Create a custom profile using MKV as your output type, and have all settings set as remux Choose your sourc...

Re: First try by dummy

If the discs are not recognised by your player, then maybe that is the problem. Try burning them at a slower speed as if you burn it to fast some players will refuse to play them or skip/stutter while playing it Try the same disc in a different standalone DVD player if it refuses to play in yours, i...

Re: Can you recommend a good video player to replace Windows

Try PotPlayer, 100% freeware, updated frequently 32bit and 64bit versions. I use it after using MediaPlayer Classic and got fed up of the 'issues' it had

Will automatically play virtually any video/audio you give it, including blu-ray and dvd with full menus


Used to be called KMPlayer

Feature Requests

Any chance of adding these, as per convertxtodvd Under the custom profiles option, there isn't an option for a 'pass through' option for the framerates, this has to be entered manually which means working out what the source framerate was. Not difficult to find out using virtually any media player b...

Re: Aaron Gonzalez

If its encoding time, that is entirely dependant on your system, if your computer is more than 3-4 years old that might be the issue not the software. What is your computer. Single core, dual core or quad core. How much memory do you have and what processor does it have. If you don't know any of tha...

That all depends on your virus software, a few software assumes anything is a virus if their heuristics think the code 'may' be a virus Saying a piece of legit software is a virus, 'becuase my virus scanner said it is' is wrong.
