Badaboom 1.1.1 is here!

Well Badaboom Version 1.1.1 is here, and it addresses many of the issues that you may have seen. Without futher ado, here are the Release Notes, which you can also find in the User Guide:

Fixes:
- SLI disabling is no longer a requirement, but rather a recommendation.
- The 64-bit video file problem that caused certain transcoded videos to fail on a number of devices has been addressed. Error messages that were seen included “Video not supported,” “Unsupported video,” and “Corrupt data.” This affects, but is not limited to, the PSP®, Playstation 3®, and Zune®.
- Audio sync issues have been improved for all file types.
- The Main profile problem causing Badaboom® to hang and crash for certain file types (including AVCHD) has been addressed.
- The Apple TV default resolution has been changed and should now accept all Badaboom® transcoded videos (with default settings).
- The CPU Decode indicator now resets correctly following each transcode.
- The features of Badaboom’s shell extension have been improved.
- Both the video and audio bitrate sliders have been fine-tuned and are more accurate.
- The estimated file size is now more accurate.
- The Advanced menu’s issue of resetting incorrectly has been addressed.
- The video stutter issue of baseline-encoded files on the Xbox 360 has been addressed.
- The overall stability of Badaboom® has been improved.

Features:
- FRAPS support: This allows game enthusiasts to transcode their recorded game play for purposes of uploading to YouTube, for example. (Feature Added Thanks to Legit Reviews)
- 960x540 resolution: This is the ideal resolution for 30 fps videos transcoded to play on Apple TV.
- Main profile selection warning: If a selected device does not officially support Main profile, a warning will be provided if the user selects this profile.

Known Issues:
- Issues with the way the application handles certain errors
- There is scratchy audio output with a very limited number of .avi files.


The team over at Badaboom have been great with feedback and based off what I have told them they have added support for the Blackberry Bold smart phone and now they have added FRAPS support. Lacking FRAPS support blew my mind back when version 1.0 came out, so I'm glad they finally included it with the right codec!

Has that "Feature added thanks to..." gone out on every press release?

Congrats on having a suggestion implemented :D

No i wish, but Mike, Eli, Jessica and Badaboom know who first suggested it...'

from 3 months ago:

As I mentioned we were intrigued by your FRAPS question, especially since it hasn't been requested by any users to date, but your comments do make a lot of sense considering the people using FRAPS are also likely to have the kind of hardware we need for our encoding.

We've downloaded a few files to experiment with, though my understanding is that there are at least 3 different flavors of the FRAPS codec. Do you know which format is the most commonly used and which you are using? We are using FFMPEG for our front end decoder and there is some FRAPS support included so we're look into this and will see what is possible for a minor version update.


Looks like the minor update finally arrived, but I proposed the question to them many months ago.
