MC-TVConverter changelog


Version 2.1.0

  • Fix: Pressing "delete" outside of MC-TVConverter window will remove item from list
  • Fix: Fast starting multiple instances of MC-TVConverter on startup will cause a "loop start" and DWM to crash
  • Fix: Fixed (hopefully) A/V sync issues when stream contains different audio encodings (just added the ffmpeg parameter "-async 48000" to profiles)
  • Fix: Files with uppercase characters in its extension have not been recognized as valid files
  • Fix: Adding metadata to MP4 files is called with faulty commandline if metadata contains line breaks

  • New: Added ability to demux TS, MPEG2 and DVR-MS files
  • New: Added status output for current file conversion while watching a folder
