ok... the last thing to do is cleaning up your nero installation with the clean up utility and reinstall it with the serials.

No, I forgot about that, but I really found it very quickly.. it's a definite advantage if you've written the code. I should've already caught it looking at the contents of the line variable that was posted.. it already reveals that the encoding speed is now given with 2 decimal digits.
Appears to be the last rescue sometimes, I came to it over a weird issue with absolutely no way around (don't remember if it was VS beta). That was as soon as the avifile API was used, the next exception happening somewhere terminated the application leaving no trace what happened so I had to find this way and use it always since then.

Checking my serials now against the order confirmation Nero sent me. Serial is still good and encoding still fails me.

I think a valid serial for Nero Burning only is not sufficient. May be valid serial for Recode (that encodes HE-AAC) is required.

@acidsex, did your Recode works fine?

I gave up and gave the AACPlusV2 a try in Easy CD Xtractor and I love it. Ill just start using this for audio encoding instead. Woohoo.

Fix for ensuring that the log file saves properly on exit:

In Form1.cs saveLog()
change
Code:
				if (!Directory.Exists(logDirectory))
					Directory.CreateDirectory(logDirectory);
				string fileName = logDirectory + @"\logfile-" + DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString() + "-" + DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString().Replace(":", "-") + ".log";
to
Code:
				if (!Directory.Exists(logDirectory))
					Directory.CreateDirectory(logDirectory);
				string fileName = logDirectory + @"\logfile-" + DateTime.Now.ToString("yy-MM-dd") + "-" + DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString().Replace(":", "-") + ".log";
Under certain locales the ToShortDateString() function will insert backslashes into the date, which results in a failure when trying to save to a non-existent directory.

Sorry I haven't had time to integrate this with all the other stuff.

Hi! This is really ugly code!
try this:
Code:
string.Format(@"{0}\logfile-{1}.log", logDirectory , DateTime.Now.ToString("yy'-'MM'-'dd'-'HH'-'mm'-'ss"));

the problem with String.Format imho is that while people coming from C love it, it's so much harder to read and understand, especially if you don't come from C.

main goal is to replace ugly
Code:
DateTime.Now.ToString("yy-MM-dd") + "-" + DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString().Replace(":", "-")
with this:
DateTime.Now.ToString("yy'-'MM'-'dd'-'HH'-'mm'-'ss")

PS. How about version control hosting (CVS or others?)

0.2.3.1024
Altered the name formation for the filename used for the log when saving.
Tidied up the resolution calculations in the avisynth creator so that they behave consistently.
Added 1.78 to the list of accepted aspect ratios in getAspectRatio() (not sure why it wasn't there already...).
Altered the code executed on opening an avs file in the main form so that it will always change the output filename appropriately.
Sharktooth's changes:
Integrated changes to use Nero7 audio encoder
Weighted prediction and no-fast pskip removed from turbo first pass
Corrected bug that caused the mencoder call-back to hang
Fixes to GUI layout for Segoe font

Changed Files (from Sharktooth's 0.2.3.1023g)
.NET 1.1 binaries

oops, yes, the 1023h changes are included.

I'll add the dgindexer fix to the changelog so we can keep track of things.

Just paste that over the old one.

About an SVN: dimzon was talking about making a workspace for meGUI over on godotnet, though no-one replied when he asked about the license that he should specify. Godotnet does require a Microsoft Passport to sign in, though, and I know there are people with religious difficulties over that.

Since there's been a lot of talk about a code store but no action , I've presumed to send in a registration request for a meGUI Project on Sourceforge. Here's the description I posted:
Quote:
meGUI is a graphical front-end to a variety of modern video and audio encoders capable of producing video that adheres to the MPEG-4 standard, both MPEG-4 Part 2 (ASP) and MPEG-4 Part 10 (AVC). Its aim is to ease the usage of other Open Source encoder projects, although it has support for a proprietary AAC audio encoder as well.

The following video encoders are supported:
x264
xvid and libavcodec via mencoder
snow
The following audio encoders are supported via BeSweet:
faac
lame mp3
Nero AAC (proprietary - both version 6 and 7 supported)

It has integrated multiplexing support for the production of mp4 (via mp4box), mkv and avi containers (AVC video is only supported in mp4 and mkv), incorporating video, audio, chapters and subtitles. It accepts input video in MPEG-2 format (using DGIndexer) as well as .avi and .vdr (VirtualDub framserver) formats.

Additional features include an integrated Avisynth script creator similar to that found in GordianKnot, a bitrate calculator and a One Click Encoder which chains together the various steps needed to convert a series of .VOB files to a final encoded file. Additional utilities include an AVC quantiser matrix editor and chapter editor.

Development of meGUI was begun in early 2005 by doom9 (the webmaster of the popular video encoding board www.doom9.net, which has been in existence for around 5 years), who has written the majority of the application. Support is primarily handled through the MPEG-4 AVC forum on doom9.net.
The Trove categorisations are:
Quote:
# License :: OSI-Approved Open Source :: GNU General Public License (GPL)
# Intended Audience :: by End-User Class :: End Users/Desktop
# Development Status :: 5 - Production/Stable
# Topic :: Multimedia :: Video :: Conversion
# Programming Language :: C#
# Operating System :: Grouping and Descriptive Categories :: 32-bit MS Windows (NT/2000/XP)
# User Interface :: Graphical :: .NET/Mono
When it gets approved I'll turn ownership of it over to doom9.

The free versions of VS 2005 don't have any CVS support (grrr), so cheap bastards like me will have to use a separate CVS integrator anyway.

what about moving the project development over sharpdevelop (free and opensource)?
i've already tried the VS2003 project conversion and it works pretty well...

#develop? Heck no... a software without debugging capabilities? I'm all for open source but I have yet to see anything free that gets close to Visual Studio.
