Badaboom Media Converter v1.1.1

Badaboom Media Converter v1.1.1

Just yesterday Elemental Technologies released a second update to Badaboom Media Converter with release v1.1.1. This version fixes 12 bugs and also new features like FRAPS support for gamers that record demos and a new 960x540 resolution for Apple TV users. We take a look at the new version compared to v1.0 and see how the updates have helped the utility.

Legit Reviews asked Elemental Technologies to think about including FRAPS support in December as I thought that gamers and enthusiasts would see a value in being able to easily record and format movies for social networking sites like YouTube. It is a great feeling to see your ideas come to life, so let's take a look at the latest version of Badaboom Media Converter! Badaboom Media Converter v1.0 received good reviews, but it was criticized for having inaccurate video/audio bitrate sliders and a poorly estimated file sizes. Elemental Technologies has spent a ton of time fine-tuning the video and audio bitrate sliders and the algorithm for the estimated output file size and both are now more accurate.

Please update us once you hear back about the GPU/FRAPS issue. This software is starting to look more tempting to buy as each version is released. Any news on full Blu-Ray support? I know for 100% that if this transcoded Blu-Ray movies without issues I'd buy it the same day I read a review that confirmed such support!

Oh, just how you mentioned that it seems to be using the CPU only.
