Upgrade Notes:

For all versions:
It is recommended (but usually not necessary) to uninstall the older version before installing the new one.

First, thank you for all the work you put into the program.

Oddly, I have a problem w/2.2.0. I took the option to do the clean install. Installed and starts OK. But, the program turns all my MKV's into MPEGs and there are no options inside the transcode folder. No mencoder, no avisynth, etc. Just the MPEG. My OPPO will not stream MPEGs without decoding. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. Same issue.

I uninstalled 2.2.0 and reinstalled 2.1.2. The MKV's are back and the engines back again. I do not understand why 2.2.0 changes my MKV's into MPEGS and why the engines do not appear in the transcode folder.

Thanks upfront for advice.
