A day with many major software updates. Superb freeware video editor, VirtualDub, has been updated. The new version, VirtualDub v1.5.6.17971, includes once again a massive list of changes and is considered "stable" unlike the previous version, v1.5.5.
The full changelog is here:
  • [features added]
    • Added support for YV12 during fast recompress.
    • Input video is now displayed during fast recompress for UYVY and YUY2 modes.
    • Video display updates are now suppressed for panes that are totally hidden.
  • [bugs fixed]
    • MP3 rate correction was correcting dwRate but not interleaving, causing some problems for embedded decoders. The interleaving rate is now adjusted on the fly. Note that MP3 correction is still not enabled when segmentation is active.
    • Time base for the position control was improperly affected by the "convert to fps" option.
    • "Box blur" filter was broken on CPUs without MMX. Dumb (Dumb compiler bugs....)
  • [regressions fixed]
    • Menu cleanup: removed synchronous blit and histogram, fixed vertical layout and pane swap.
    • Fixed crash when loading some job configurations from 1.5.4 and below.
    • Fixed audio displacement not working in simple audio pipeline with forward offset.
    • Adjusted Z-order of status bar relative to panes.
    • MPEG-1 decoding was broken on platforms with MMX but without SSE2.
    • Plugin code could crash if no plugins were installed, particularly under Windows NT 4.0.
    • Video codec code occasionally named the wrong codec when reporting video format corruption during codec arbitration.
    • Corrected DCT coefficient pruning in MJPEG decoder.
    • Fixed crash when WAV open fails.
    • Delete was producing invalid subsets in some cases.
