Release Notes: This release features a new GUI for making multiple titlesets with tovid. It includes many updates and fixes for changes in the backends like ffmpeg and dvdauthor as well as numerous bugfixes. New libavfilter features from ffmpeg have been implemented, so the -quick-menu option now works again with a recent enough libavfilter and ffmpeg (0.8). Several new options have also been added, including the ability to use your own arbitrary images for thumbnail links. PNG is now used generally as an intermediary format instead of JPEG, resulting in improved picture quality.
Release Notes: This release switches to a distutils-based installation using setup.py, adds a new tovid.ini configuration file, and makes various bugfixes and improvements.
Release Notes: This is the first tovid release in well over two years. It brings numerous GUI and command-line changes, bugfixes, and other improvements. The command-line scripts, manpages, and GUI have been unified into a single script called "tovid".
Release Notes: Lots of bugs in ffmpeg and other issues in this release were fixed. A new -fit option was added for specifying a desired output size. Interactive -switched-menus was added for live thumbnail previews in todisc menus. The -quick-menu todisc feature was added for greatly improved rendering speed.
Release Notes: This release has a new todisc GUI, but still includes the old one with improvements. There are many new features and bugfixes in todisc and makemenu.
Release Notes: This release fixes bugs with creating menus and authoring/burning DVDs, problems with widescreen videos getting cropped on some TVs, and the infamous "bad substitution" error on Ubuntu. "todisc" features new button effects and menu template choices, and better dvdauthor configurability. "tovid" quality was tweaked to produce better results for ffmpeg-based encoding, and multitrack audio encoding is now possible. The "libtovid" backend now has a Cairo-based rendering backend and a dvdauthor interface.
Release Notes: This is primarily a maintenance release, with a few bonus features. Many bugs and inconsistencies have been ironed out; the 'todisc' script (now in its second release) is much more polished and stable, and a new prototype todisc GUI is included. libtovid now includes a basic animated graphic rendering system that could become the foundation for future work.
Release Notes: A new 'todisc' script that can generate a ready-to-burn DVD or SVCD with animated-thumbnail preview menus, given a list of files and titles was added. This release also added flexible dependency handling, simpler 'tovid' audio encoding, 'makedvd' improvements, and more.
Release Notes: This is mostly a maintenance release, and testbed for the Python-based libtovid modules. A new encoding technique -bdvd allows potentially better compression than -kdvd; pytovid is partially functional, using an mencoder-based backend to do faster encoding than the standard tovid script.
Release Notes: New -keepfiles, -quiet, -fake, and other options were added. Multithreading was re-enabled for faster encoding. Bugfixes and enhancements were made in makedvd, idvid, and makexml. There were also interface cleanups and documentation updates, and a brand new, partly working pytovid.
