Woohoo! Thanks guys, great new features. :slight_smile:


Thank you Fengtao and Ting for all your hard work.


thanks for the update :slight_smile:

edit// one of my very first post here at cdfreaks was to add audio to the dvdfab preview. :smiley:


The Preview window will not open if the DVD to DVD nav pane is fully expanded with all modes shown.
//EDIT// Never mind. Operator error.
//EDIT// Crashes when switching audio tracks, at least with ffdshow filters selected.


Rock & Roll…:cool:
Sweeeet…can’t wait to try out the new features !!!


awesome I will be trying this out later. Keep up the good work fengtao and crew


Anyone that got the preview with DirectShow selected, showing the picture without disturb ions / pixelations and is running Vista?

Tried the four options - Nero/Microsoft. Same result. :sad:

Edit: One some movies it works without problems, one some it’s problem. :confused:


Hi Gummigutta, please try ffdshow to see the result.

Hi signals, please update to latest version of ffdshow to see the result.


Fantastic work, Fengtao and Ting! :clap::clap::clap:

Many thanks to you, and the others in your team, for the unstinting hard work which you put into keeping DVDFab constantly updated in this way. Appreciate that a very great deal.

My girls also send their thanks. :flower:

See you later then, and thanks again. Jim. :smiley:


Many thanks Fengtao and Ting!

Rock on!


Same as Gummi here…
Not getting a crash like signals?..but glitchy

I’m running XP Pro SP2 and also seeing the pixelations.
This is with DirectShow selected.
Tried all 4 options, ffdshow Video Decoder, etc…
Downloaded the latest ffdshow and still getting the pixelations.

The good news is that I’m able to preview all the audio tracks within Fab and not having to go outside to another app.


THanks for the updates. THumbs up to the both of you!!


Yes, thankyou for all your hard work. :iagree::flower:


The preview box has pixelation and studer with a few video decoders, intervideo video decoder works great for me.


I always update my ffdshow Video Decoder, now I am thinking thats why I never have a problem. :wink:


Which version are you using Alan?




Thanks Fengtao and Ting!



My curiosity…how can I check the version of [I]ffdshow[/I] I am running? :confused:
