The title pretty much says it all. So, Brian Binnerup has been busy adding new features and squashing bugs on his road to the official, non-beta release of My Movies for Windows Home Server. The two stand-out features in v1.02 users now get to play with is support for FLAC lossless audio CD rips and MPEG-2 DVD rips compatible with Media Center Extenders. Interestingly, in regards to DVD rips, users will now have four options to suit their needs: ISO file, VIDEO_TS Folder, MPEG-2 File, VIDEO_TS Folder and MPEG-2 File. Note: a copy of AnyDVD is required to perform DVD rips. Full change log below.
