    • 1.1.5.1
      - Fix: handle unusual SSIF layout (SSIF partially not covered by 2D m2ts stream), caused endless loop when building CPI map table.
      - Change: when heuristic attempts to determine whether a disc is a series or a movie, prefer movie, if both is possible
      - Fix: MP4 container
      - Fix: MP4 timestamps (local- > UTC)
      - Fix: MP4/AVC boxes (signature, profile)
      - Fix: possible crash in EncodeVideo
      - Fix: PPS overrun
      - Fix nVidia: when upscaling from 720p@60Hz to 1080p, force AVC level 4.2
      - minor fixes and improvements
      - updated languages
    • 1.1.5.2

      - New: support frame packed 3D (MVC) in MKV files lossless and lossy
      important note: only a few PC-players support this 3D format, including PowerDVD 16 or higher, Kodi - only a few linux version and Stereoscopic Player,
      also, lossless MVC don't properly work with PowerDVD, reencoded copies work fine.
      For now, only software de-/encoding is possible and is fairly slow.
      - New: added setting to eject source disc after processing
      - Change: security update for ElbyCDIO.sys
      - New: preview player allows to switch display between 2D and SBS formats (R/L view can be used for "squinting eyes 3D" for quick verification)
      - Fix: 2D playlists sometimes got hidden by their 3D counterparts
      - Fix: size estimation inaccurate when creating MKV/MP4 when playlist contains the same clip multiple times
      - Fix: Multiple corruptions of BD data
      - Fix: Early terminating streams (data corruption due to preprocessing with 3rd party tools and then postprocessing in CloneBD)
      - Fix: Subtitle display on some Opus players
      - Fix: Audio/video drift on some PAL encoded discs (that have been "telecined" from NTSC and not sped up)
      - Fix: Further support for 192 kHz/96 kHz Dolby Atmos discs
      - Fix: Further support for some audio discs (LPCM, 24-bit, 192 kHz)
      - Fix: Correctly output big-endian audio samples (was little-endian)
      - Fix: Better AVC video encoding settings to support more standard players
      - Fix: Further support for usually Japanese BD recorders (pseudo BDMV format)
      - Fix: Correctly decode VC-1 color space, cropping area
      - Fix: Preview playback of VC-1 tracks
      - Change: Reduced required memory footprint
      - Fix: (possible workaround for a Marantz player) - remove several optional items from chapter entries in MKV files
      - many minor fixes and improvements
      - updated languages

      - Workaround: Windows MediaFoundation Parser bug (Windows Media Player/"Movies & TV") couldn't parse MKV files, that were created with "extra track for forced subtitles"
      - Fix: NTSC non-telecine incorrectly detected as telecined so field splitting failed
      - Fix: size estimator is off, when many picture in picture streams and an over-abundance of subtitles is in the source

    • 1.1.7.1beta
      Note: the beta incorporates an enormous amount of rewrites and structural redesigns, so your beta testing input is very appreciated.
      It also comes with Ultra HD support, so whoever owns unencrypted UHD images/folders can try CloneBD on them.


      Software base UHD support is included, but of course not very fast, unless you make lossless copies (lossless UHD to MKV is included).


      Real speed requires an nVidia card (which still will be improved further in upcoming versions), here are the basic requirements:
      compress UHD HDR to 8 bit MKV or MP4, full acceleration requires at least an nVidia GTX 9xx
      CloneBD will perform the required HDR to SDR and color space conversion
      compress UHD HDR to 10 bit MKV, full acceleration requires at least an nVidia GTX1050 card (for HEVC Main 10 Level encoding with HDR)
      Full UHD disc copy is experimental.
