[QUOTE=Complication;2112988]This is a welcome addition to DVDFab. A couple of suggestions:
It is may be a bad idea to allow such easy editing of the standard profiles that come with DVDFab. Instead, I suggest that standard profiles be able to be copied and saved as something else. This is especially true since the installer will undoubtedly overwrite these profiles with each version of the software. The profile editor could allow edit and save of modified profiles under the “Documents and Settings/<user>/Application Data/DVDFab/profiles” where DVDFab also picks up profile information. This is also where DVDFab saves when you click the button to make your changes the default.
Allowing changes to the standard profiles will also will make it very difficult to help troubleshoot problems users are having. When a user is asked what profile they are running, we can no longer assume that the profile is unchanged. Signals will be pulling out all of his hair trying to figure it out.
This is the very first publicly available beta release but I’d like to point out that you have not included all the settings available in the standard profiles. Specifically, you have not included the fourcc and vcodec options. This is probably not a tool for the average user so including all the settings that DVDFab has in a profile editor would be a great way to mitigate the lack of up-to-date documentation on profiles.[/QUOTE]
I am afraid that I disagree with Complication here. His request to store the profiles in the AppData directory make an assumption that you are always logged on as the same user otherwise those profiles will only available to that user.
[B]This is most certainly NOT the case in my installation as any PC may be used by a variety of different logged on users (Even though they may all only be me).[/B]
I would far prefer to manage the profiles centrally where they are at the moment under \Program Files\DVD Fab\Profiles.
I do agree with Complication that there are more parameters to add and that documentation on all of these is way out of date and needs an update.
