Online PR News – 16-April-2012 – +86-10-83913343 – Fengtao Software Inc., the leading multimedia software company majors in DVD, Blu-ray copy and video converter, released two official builds in the past week, with Qt 8.1.7.3 on April fool’s day, and Qt 8.1.7.5 on April 7th. This density of official release did not happen too often. So, what’s new in these two official releases, here is a closer look.

DVDFab 8.1.7.3 Qt was released on April 1
It was on April first the Fool’s Day that DVDFab announced the new official build, Qt 8.1.7.3 and, it was a real release, not for fun. In this minor upgrade, developers improved the disc opening speed with multiple active drives, virtual drive also included, enhanced the reliability of source disc detection and, supported a newly released movie in its DVD copy software.

The major improvement in this build actually was the support to BDAV disc in Blu-ray Copy, a special format used by Blu-ray recorder in Japan. User can use "Main Movie" to copy it to normal BDMV format which can be played on normal Blu-ray player. The BDAV disc format is the consumer oriented alternative to the BDMV discs, with the latter mainly made by professional Authoring houses for movie releases. BDAV was designed in part to provide compatibility between AVCHD digital camcorders and Blu-ray players, but, usually, it provided with no menus, trailers etc, comparing with the BDMV disc.

Another important new feature in Qt 8.1.7.3 was the added option to copy Blu-ray 3D disc or 3D Blu-ray ISO file to to Blu-ray 3D folder using "Copy as Blu-ray 3D" in Blu-ray Copy Full Disc mode. Although it greatly enhanced the conveniences, it was in fact conditional, to use this new feature, “create .miniso” must be enabled, and BD50 was the only output size for the time being. The "BDMV\STREAM\SSIF" folder will not be copied from source to save disk space. To playback the Blu-ray 3D folder, user need mount the “dvdfab.miniso” with DVDFab Virtual Drive v1360 or above, and the SSIF folder will be re-created automatically in the virtual drive. This version was currently not reachable, but its replacement was still ready for download at http://www.dvdfab.com/download.htm

DVDFab 8.1.7.5 Qt was out on April 7
Only six days later, another minor update, DVDFab Qt 8.1.7.5, was available, but, in this build, people will not see much improvements, it mainly improved compatibility with some new DVD drives, fixed a crash problem when converting "Dragon Ball GT" in DVD Ripper, and a TotalMedia Theatre 5 playback problem which occurred in last version in Blu-ray Copy.
