Yamb 2.1.0.0 beta 2 is out...

Here is Yamb 2.1.0.0 beta 2...The old one is still there.

Just a side note, the only recommended sites to download this preview are : doom9.org, yamb.unite-video.com or my personnal website kurtnoise.free.fr. Don't trust the others...especially with spywares/adwares,etc which can be added.




For those who don't know what Yamb is : this is mainly a GUI for MP4Box but with a lot of features :
  • This GUI is able to mux a lot of Audio (aac, mp4, mp3, vorbis...) & Video Files (3gp, mp4, mpeg, vob, ogg, avi...) with subtitles and chapters support.
  • able to Split/Join mp4/mov/3gp files.
  • able to extract some tracks from AVI files or raw/mp4/3gp streams, subtitles and chapters.
  • Have some infos about your files.
  • able to tag mp4/3gp files.
  • Full Unicode support.

If you are already a Yamb user, bear in mind that 2.0 has been completely rewritten to be more user-friendly. So, I hope you would like it...


Some extra comments for MP4/3GPP Files Creation :
  1. When you drop your files, some streams can be directly unchecked. (AC3/DTS audio streams from VOB/MPEG/AVI or x264vfw streams from AVI). It's not a bug but Yamb's behaviour to avoid mux problems : MP4Box doesn't support these kind of streams.
  2. For VFR Creation :
    • MP4/MOV/3GPP as input files aren't allowed. Anyway there is a warning for that.
    • you have to specify manually the Frame-Rate for each streams via Properties because MP4Box will use a value of 25.000 fps otherwise.
  3. By default, Yamb shows only File & Description Columns for the Input List. You can of course add/remove what you want here (File, Index, Description, Name, Language, FrameRate) via a right-click on the header List. Some note about "Index" : in this are stored tracks IDs for MP4/MOV/3GPP, Index for VobSub files and video/audio type for AVI/MPEG/VOB files...All this is needed for MP4Box.


Extra comments for Yamb Settings :
  • "Enable OnFinish Event" option : when running process is complete and you click on Finish Button, you will have a message which gives you the possibility to quit application (yes) or to return on the main page (no).
  • For the moment, "help" button links to the website. Sorry for people who have a poor internet connection are for whose who prefer to work offline. In the future, this help will link with a .chm file.



If you have found a bug, please follow these rules for bugreports :
  1. Provide the Yamb and MP4Box version or the date of compilation (same things for tagger tools).
  2. Try to describe as clear as possible issues or troubles : needed to reproduce bugs on my side.
  3. (formely named Yamb.log).

Bugreports or anything else can be reported by mail : kurtnoise at free dot fr or directly in this thread.


There will be probably some questions or comments. I'll add them here later but now I let you to find extra goodies by yourself. Enjoy !!!

Bugs Hunting is officially open...

WOW! this really rocks!
the things i tried seemed to work fine.

i noticed the following:
you seem to allow to set the brandname only on video streams. this is problematic as with audio-only mp4 files the user cant set a brand and with mp4 files with more than one video stream he could set more than one.
if possible it might be better to allow setting the brand on the first stream to be added no matter what type it is?

also it might be good to give the user the option to set a brand called something like "MPEG-4 compatible", meaning letting mp4box set the right brand it wants to use (also pointing out that using an own brand is not really mpeg-4 compatible)

Thanks.

Just did some tests with .264, .aac, and .idx, and everything worked really fine as expected.

Nice work.

I don't get your point...What do you mean by "MPEG-4 compatible" ? Something like mp42/mp41 ?

Hi Kurt,

When attempting to "Add" 1No elementary (MPEG-4 Part2) .CMP stream, a whole load of other streams appeared: -




A similar thing happens when adding elementary (MPEG-1) .M1V and elementary (MPEG-2) .M2V streams...


Cheers

Thanks... That nailed it

When importing/adding streams, would it be possible to configure YAMB to display more detailed information about the individual streams from both MediaInfo and MP4Box?

Something like this perhaps: -




Cheers

I forgot to mention...

I'm not sure what you mean by the therm "Edition"... Do you mean "Editing"?




Cheers

@SeeMoreDigital

It's "Editing". "Edition" is bad translation from french, "Édition".

Well, give me a good reason to include this (i.e try to convince me) because this is not the main purpose of this GUI...

@ChaosKing : ok...I'll change the font.
