  • Hardware-accelerated encoding with AMD VCE, Nvidia NVENC and Intel QuickSync
  • AAC, MP3, Vorbis, AC3, FLAC audio encoding and AAC/AC3/MP3/DTS/DTS-HD passthrough
  • Target bitrate, size or quality for video

First v9 Stable release, that brings all of the v9 Beta work over to the Stable track.
  • HandBrake core changes:
  • Enabled NVDec hardware decoding, supported only when using an NVEnc encoder and with the right hardware.
  • Added an option to remove the cap of 3 simultaneous NVEnc encodes. Only those that have custom NVidia drivers that remove the cap should choose this.
  • Increased the maximum simultaneous encode setting cap to 16.
  • Added log window virtualization. This should greatly reduce memory use and prevent hangs when using Extended logging.
  • Added the option to use a polling folder watcher (Global options ➡️ Advanced ➡️ Watcher mode). This is a slower, less efficient way of detecting files in watched folders, but is a good option if you find the regular watcher is not functioning.
  • Updated Global Options to immediately apply changes.
  • Added shortcuts to the Encoding Settings and Picker windows from the Global Options window. It includes desriptions to help people find settings they are looking for.
  • Added more checks around the file save dialog, retrying without an initial directory or file name when it fails. This fixes a potential crash on an invalid folders.
  • Added a Picker ability to choose titles based on the width or height.
  • Changed to delay the allow sleep operation until after the post-encode triggers have had a chance to execute. This should fix an issue where the system would sleep instead of shutting down as configured.
  • Added option to restart on encode/queue complete.
  • Removed restriction on setting another subtitle as Default when a track is burned in.
  • Added "None" option for automatic audio track selection.
  • Added checkbox in Global Options to quickly enable or disable auto-pause on process.
  • Added "pause" and "resume" commands to VidCoderCLI.exe.
  • When editing a queue item, the original preset name is now shown first, "Old preset - Restored from Queue" rather than just showing "Restored from Queue".
  • A bunch of bug fixes
Fixed issue that caused the main window mini-preview image to disappear.
