Transcode 360 Beta3 W.I.P.
-- Posted by XanTium on April 12 00:31 EST
"Just in case you guys and gals are wondering what is happening, we are actively working on the next Beta release of Transcode 360(info). We're actively coding/testing/banging our heads against the TV set to a produce quality product."
Here's a heads up on what to expect in our next release:
The aspect ratio issues have been resolved, we've greatly improved (if not resolved) AV sync and playback choppiness, and implemented subtitles. Further to this we've also taken steps to improve compatibility that will make for friendlier co-existance with other codecs.
We've added the ability for those with a little programming experience to create their own custom plugins to transcode content. We'll be including C# samples utilising FFMPEG, MEncoder, VLC and Windows Media Encoder.
After a great deal of testing its looking like MEncoder is the best suited for our solution, but if you prefer one transcoder over the other you can always specify which by editing the Transcode 360 configuration file.
I realise that there are plenty of features up on 'The Todo List' that haven't been included and we will get round to them once we're comfortable that we have a stable foundation on which to build these very-nice-to-have features; in the meantime you could always show your support for the project by donating a couple of dollars. The total project donations recieved to date are just shy of $100 versus 18,000+ downloads. As a thank you I'm adding contributors to the Sponsors group on our forums; currently this entitles you to priority support but in future this may extend to early access to builds.
Time permitting expect a new beta to follow very shortly!
