Announcements of new VAP versions


Ver. 1.32, 8 June 2017

8 June 2017, Ver. 1.32

Fixed: With process flow of QSF-then-AdScan and .mkv input file contained MPEG2 video, VAP was looking for temp file extension of .mkv instead of .ts, thus failed with file not found error.


VAP Ver. 1.33

10 July 2017, Ver. 1.33

Fixed: Was using non-Tivo intermedate (TempQSF) file when both input and output types were .Tivo. (VRD cannot create a .tivo file from an input non-tivo file.)
Fixed: At startup if one of the configured folders (Monitored, TempQSF or Output) is no longer present a descriptive message is given and VAP will do nothing until you terminate and fix
the situration.


VAP Ver. 1.34

28 August 2017, Ver. 1.34

Fixed: Didn't properly detect ComSkip versions 82_xxx
Enhanced: Generates BTV movie files from input NextPVR xml files.
Changed: Distributed free ComSkip version is 82_002.


VAP Version 1.35

24 November 2017, Ver. 1.35

Enhanced: If VAP window is mostly covered by other windows, clicking the Notify Icon brings it to the front. Five locations on the VAP form (4 at corners and one near the center) are checked to see if they are behind another window. If at least 4 are covered, the form is brought to the front.


VAP Version 1.36

2 July 2018, Ver. 1.36

Fixed: Year conversion exceptions in AirDate metadata parsing
Fixed: Comskip could not run on some suitable files when using VRD Version 3
Fixed: VAP was preventing display (monitor) from sleeping after time set in Windows. Default behavior now is to allow sleep. New Command-line option -keepDisplayOn can be used to invoke previous behavior if desired.


VAP Ver. 1.37

VAP Ver. 1.37 has been released.

10 August 2018, Ver. 1.37
Fixed: When using ComSkip, file names with extended characters caused VRD loads to fail because UTF-8 encoding of ComSkip-created .vprj file was not properly read by VAP.


VAP Version 1.39 released.

29 September 2018, Ver. 1.39

Fixed: -metapytivo CL option not working for autocut cases.
Fixed: -metabtv CL option could cause pyTivo .txt file to be produced instead of XML.
Enhanced: File/Folder permission errors during monitored folder scans handled with log messages provided.


VAP Version 1.40 released

5 November 2018, Ver. 1.40
Fixed: UTF-8 chars in log file.
Enhanced: BeyondTV xml output file elements


VAP Version 1.41 released

3 April 2019, Ver. 1.41
Fixed: UTF8 to CP1252 conversion of Comskip .vprj files wasn't invoked for TVS4
Fixed: Web response error in TVDB search caused infinite loop
Enhanced: Added -vprjOnly CL option (Outputs are VideoReDo project files, not video file)
Enhanced: postprocess scripts work with -vprjOnly CL option invoked
Fixed: Bogus thumbnail not present messages


VAP Version 1.42 released
11 October 2019, Ver. 1.42

Enhanced: Added movie metadata searches via The keys for this search are the
title and movie year, which must be obtained by parsing the input file name using a suitable
template entered in the bottom section of the “MetaData Templates” tab of the Advanced
Configuration page. There is a checkbox on the “Other” tab to disable these searches.

Enhanced: Added checkbox on “Other” tab of Advanced Configuration page to “Do not put
metadata in MP4 files with Atomic Parsley”

Changed: Removed checkbox on “Other” tab of Advanced Configuration that disabled TVDB
searches if the TVDB site was not responding.

Enhanced: Can create “Folder.jpg” thumbnail image beside WTV movie output files,
controlled by checkbox on “Other” tab of Advanced Configuration. (Obviously depends on
TMDb movie metadata search succeeding.)


VAP Ver. 1.43 released.

21 October, Ver. 1.43
Changed: This version is Ver. 1.42 ported from Visual Studio 2008 to VS 2019
Changed: Requires .NET 4.0
Changed: Supports only TVSuite 5 – earlier VRD versions are no longer supported.
Changed: CL Option -otm, output to monitored folder, and associated functionality removed.
Changed: CL Option -forceWTV and associated functionality removed

This version drops some features and also no longer works for VRD versions prior to TVSuite 5. If you need VAP for TVSuite 4 or earlier, or need the OTM feature, please continue to use VAP Ver. 1.42.


Just FYI, in case you haven't noticed, there is now a version of VAP (called VAP6) that works with TV Suite 6 --- see link in signature.

I'm pondering how best to announce new versions of VAP6, i.e, create a new thread similar to this one or just announce both VAP and VAP6 versions in this thread.
