This worked great on windows 8, but can't get H264 to work since upgrading to windows 8.1 All movies freeze when the copy is between 12% and 15% complete. Other video codecs work, but not H264. I even increased the RAM in the PC - figuring Windows 8.1 used more resources, but the RAM upgrade didn't make a difference. Is there a plan to make this work on Windows 8.1 in the future? Or is there a trick I can to get it to work now? Thanks

Yes! Just download and have a try!
Looks great. One question, though. When I convert the DVD to H.264 can I include the subtitle(s) from the DVD and use it/them on the new format?
