1.2.1.0 download returned

Removed the 1.2.1.0 download for the time being because of a virus report. Chances are it's a false positive but best not to take any risks.

Edit: After doing a thorough scan and investigation of my computer and DVD Flick's files, none were found. In other words, false positive, much arghh later the downloads are back.

Released 1.1.0 final

The hopefully final finalish final version of DVD Flick 1.1.0. Most important are the usage of a newer version of the encoder, HC-Enc, and the fix of a crash that could occur when a video filter was not installed.

Released 1.1.0 RC3

The crashing upon extracting a non-AC3 source should be fixed. There may still be problems regarding file info detection.

- Changed: AVISynth, FFDShow and Haali Media Splitter are now optional install items for those that keep them up-to-date manually.

1.1.0 RC 1 Known Issues

There may be errors relating to AviSynth when installing. A manual uninstall of AviSynth from the Software Panel or Start Menu might fix this error.
When creating your DVD, DVD Flick may crash or simply close down without any error; this is being looked into. It is most likely a DirectShow filter problem.
And creating chapters produces a crash or lock-up when creating the DVD.

Apologies for the inconvenience, RC 2 will be out ASAP.
