There was a bug in the Makefiles causing some systems to refuse to install the package. The tv.com ripper now support tv.com's new layout. The movie-title program now renders sensible menus if no preview images are used. The movie-to-dvd program now supports the forcing of a specific audio codec while generating the destination video's audio. Movies without audio are now handled correctly.
Version 1.4.0 of Videotrans, a set of programs to create complete DVDs for use in standalone DVD players out of movies of nearly any type, has been released.

This release fixes a bug in the 1.2.0 release which caused the movie-rip-tv.com program to hang in some situations.
