Why dont you start the 30 day trial for Blu-Rar option after it it out of Beta

excited to try it out… hope the bugs are minimal or non-existent!

thanks guys :bow: :bow:

Fengtao and Ting, nicely done.
Appreciate it.

Thank you, you guys are relentless, lol. ~ Mike

If all software companies listened to their people like these guys do…what a world it would be.

Awesome job guys and I now look forward to the day I can get a BD drive.

Just don’t use it until it is out of the beta stage :bigsmile:

Thanks Fengtao for the update :cool:

Exactly. It’s totally up to the user.

Some ppl will want to try it out asap.
If you don’t, then don’t

Fengtao,

It seems DVDFab can’t handle Blu-ray’s AACS MKBv12. I tried Madagascar Escape 2 Africa on Bluray Region A, which is protected by MKBv12 (no BD+) and DVDFab just scan the disc forever. After a few minutes DVDFab shutdown by itself.

I tried a few Blu-ray movies MKBv7, MKBv9, DVDFab works fine.

Suggestions for Blu-ray features:

  • Main Movie menu shows all titles and does not go directly to the main movie but instead (I think) the largest play time. My suggestion is to jump/select directly to main movie.

  • For Main Movie mode, DVDFab doesn’t produce index.bdmv and MovieObject.bdmv under BDMV folder. Tested in PS3 and PowerDVD, they don’t recognize the disc without these files.

I installed this beta and when I started a DVD back up it said “you are going to try the Blu-Ray option” and all I had to select was OK. It did not give me a YES or NO selection like I was expecting. Doesn’t really matter to me but I thought I would post it here

New: Added profiles to create AVI for DivX compatible player. Thanks for signals!

I thought the AVIs were already compatible with DivX players. I mean, as far as I know the resulting AVIs don’t use QPel or GMC. The only thing that might possibly be a problem is the FourCC used.

There is a thread about it in the Mobile sub-forum: http://club.cdfreaks.com/f163/divx-videofab-converter-really-267199/

Ah. Ok, thanks for clearing that up.

I also had the same message.

Me too, but About still says Never Used.

I was in the middle of a test back up when I posted but the about still says never used for me also. It would be better if we had a [B]yes[/B] or [B]no[/B] choice for it

Yes, that’s true and I do plan to buy it if and when I go Blu-ray but if we get a limited time period to purchase free lifetime for it as I have it for my platinum then I will be one of the first to purchase it. If not then I will wait the 2 or 3 years until I do go Blu-ray to purchase
