    So you've been playing with already? :)

    I'll definately mess with it this weekend. Probably end up reporting the same bugs you find. Fengtao and Ting are usually pretty quick about getting things updated once they're alerted.

    VideoFab is supposed to convert files other than DVD files such as AVI or WMV to other formats.
    At the moment I don't care for VideoFab. I feel that it needs a great deal of improvement and the price is ridiculous when there are freeware programs out there that do a much better job. Maybe in the future it will be a decent program.

    At this point, i'm not real impressed with VideoFab either. My trial is only days away from expiration. I don't think at this point i'll be purchasing.

    That was my feeling when they fiinally posted the price, but I thought that there may be something special about it that I was missing. I recently acquired a PS3 and so my interest in converting files has risen. Thanks for your thoughts guys.

    Agreed. Here lately it seems the updates are more geared towards little bugs than cracking newer encryptions.

    I am having problems using Videofab to convert M2TS files to MKV files to play on my eva8000.
    When trying to convert a file it produces the vido ok, however, there is no sound.
    Mediainfo reports the following:

    General

    Does anyone know whats wrong?
    Anyone know any better software to convert Bluray to MKV files? Bitrate needs to be under 8000kbs after the conversion.

    Thanks for your help
