  • Added the ability to automatically include .srt, .ssa or .ass files with the same name as the source video.
  • Moved Rotate filter to before the crop/scale filter. This means that output sizes/cropping are applied after rotation.
  • Added ability to reflect deinterlace/detelecine/grayscale in picture preview.
  • Disabled the non-functional 2-pass encoding option for QuickSync encoders.
  • Added deprecation warning for Windows 7 / 8.
  • Updated HandBrake core.

  • Added option to pass through video metadata like director, release date and actors.
  • Fixed issue where a duplicate queue item would be created instead of replacing an existing queue job when adding items via batch with "Overwrite" enabled.
  • Changed to use "single" conflict policy when adding a batch of 1 item.
  • Fix crash on updating CPU priority with finished jobs.
  • Removed source name from VideoSourceMetadata. This is now calculated dynamically from source type, source path and drive information. This fixes an issue where {source} was not working in post-encode arguments when batch queuing.
  • Fixed crash when stopping an individual encode when queue is smaller than number of allowed simultaneous encodes.
  • Changed audio preview refresh to be last, so it has the updated audio settings in place when it runs.
  • Reactored audio resolution into ResolveAudio function in JsonEncodeFactory and made audio bitrate code plug into it so it knows about passthrough changes.
  • Replaced Newtonsoft JSON serializer with the faster, built-in System.Text.Json.

  • Added Picker option to ignore files below a certain minimum size when batch queueing.
  • Brought Title and Time Range picker sections into a single "Video selection" section with the minimum size option.
  • Made progress bars in the Encode Details window turn yellow when paused.
  • Fixed issue where the logs on scan batches would stay open, preventing the "clear finished logs" button from working.
  • Fixed crash after falling back to no hardware safe mode.
  • Updated HandBrake core.

  • Binaries are now digitally signed, which will hopefully cut down on the number of warning dialogs when installing recently released versions.
  • Added option to stop just one of multiple jobs that are encoding. Right click the queued job -> Stop.
  • When increasing Max simultaneous encodes, new jobs will be started right away.

  • Fixed stuck encodes on Portable version when .NET 5.0 Runtime is not installed. Needed to publish the worker process separately with self-contained mode enabled. Now the portable version should work completely without any .NET Runtime installed.
  • Enabled ReadyToRun publish step. The executables are now pre-compiled for faster start times on the installer version.
  • Fixed an crash on selecting a language in the audio track picker settings.

  • Upgraded to .NET 5.0. This was a big, disruptive upgrade that marks the end of the old .NET Framework, and many support libraries needed to be replaced.
  • First, the bad news: I did not find a color picker control that works on .NET 5.0 WPF, so the Pad color picker is gone. It is replaced by a text-box where you can type in a 6-digit hex code. You should be able to pick the color through a different tool, though.
  • Now the good news: .NET 5.0 comes with a "self-contained" application mode that does not require the .NET Runtime to be installed. So now the portable executable is truly portable and needs no framework or runtime install to work.
  • The installer experience is also better, as the .NET 5.0 Runtime install is much faster than the old .NET Framework install.
  • Enabled standard notifications on Windows 10 for when the encode queue completes. This was previously only on the Microsoft Store version, but now works for the installer version.

  • Added warning for Microsoft Store version that you need to download the installer for further updates. VidCoder is updating to .NET 5.0 and it does not play nicely with Desktop Bridge (The technology to allow me to put VidCoder on the Microsoft Store). I'll be retiring the Microsoft Store version and focusing on the installer.
  • Made VidCoder single-instanced: launching again will activate the current instance rather than launch a new one. This will prevent issues with unintentionally launching too many instances when it minimizes to the system tray. Multi-instance behavior is no longer needed with support for simultaneous encodes.
  • When enqueuing an item with an destination that already exists in the queue, it will remove the old queue job instead of just adding a new one with the same path.
  • In this situation the conflict resolution dialog will now prompt to "Replace job" instead of "Overwrite".
  • Foreign audio scan subtitle added by Picker is no longer automatically marked as Default.
  • Hid the Default checkbox in the "by index" subtitle selection mode because it has no effect and the "default index" box is used instead.
