FFAStrans 1.0.0 beta

Post by admin » Thu Nov 07, 2019 8:54 pm

Hi all,

It's been a long time since last update. The reason is simple; FFAStrans 1.0.0.
Most of the program core has been rewritten, and hopefully for the better and with many new features. The gui look is more or less the same but has some performance improvements.

So I offer you to download and test "FFAStrans 1.0.0 beta", but please take notice of the following:

  • DO NO replace your existing version with this beta version. It's for testing and evaluation only.
  • DO NOT install as service if you already have an existing FFAStrans service installed.
  • You can NOT import your existing workflows and database through the manager gui.
  • The beta is ONLY 64 bit executable.
  • The documentation is just partly updated.

If you against all warnings STILL decide replace your existing version, please notice the following:


  • Make a COMPLETE backup of your existing installation.
  • FFAStran 1.0.0 is NOT backwards compatible. So upon first start you old workflows and database will be converted to a new database. Depending on the size of your old database this might take a while.
  • If you install as service you need to reconfigure the credentials running the service as the old one will be deleted.
  • You cannot convert back!

Oh, and here's the link(s):

Beta 6, released 8. January 2020, 64bit only.

Beta 7.1, final beta, released 20. January 2020, 64/32bit.

thank you for all your work.
I have tested and it seems to work fine but as you said that we should not replace our old version, I can not test it in a real production environment where there is heavy load.
Anyway thank again for all that stuff :)

Beta 7 is working really well for me, everything seems much smoother and faster feeling than v0.9.4.1.

Quick question, which version of ffmpeg is built-in now as of Beta 7?
FFAStrans 1.2.0
HP DL360p Gen8 - 2x Intel Xeon E5-2670 - 32GB RAM
2x HP SL230s
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 64-bit

That's really great to read, Noqras! :-)

Once it's tested, FFAStrans "always" comes with the latest official release from https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/, as does the beta. Currently this is 4.2.1.
