Changes for 27/04/2007 - 28/04/2007

  • Fixed a regression in PS timestamps calculation.

Changes for 28/03/2007 - 27/04/2007

  • Added support for DTS in TS stream type 0x82.
  • Added support for more LPCM types in TS.
  • Added workaround for some broken TS files.

  • Fixed parsing of wrapped PTS in TS/PS.

Changes for 07/03/2007 - 28/03/2007

  • The installer now shows a warning if you try to overwrite a newer version of the splitter.
  • Added support for TRACKSETEX tags, they work much like TRACKSET ones below, with one addition: first word in the tag's value specifies the edition ID that is linked to this trackset. If that edition is activated from the UI, the trackset is also activated.
  • Track numbers instead of track IDs can be specified in TRACKSET(EX) tags by using #num syntax.
  • Added support for 'h264' fourcc to the muxer.
  • The splitter will now register m2ts and evo extensions when MPEG TS/PS support is enabled.
  • Some code rearrangement in the renderer that allows it to work on Intel GMA950 graphics devices (onboard graphics commonly found in laptops). Also it might reduce tearing on some other chipsets (Intel driver doesn't like to be called from multiple threads, it's possible that there are more drivers like that).
  • The splitter no longer removes extra H.264 SPS and PPS NALUs from the stream, since there are transport streams where SPS and PPS do change in the middle of a stream.

Changes for 31/01/2007 - 07/03/2007

  • Improved gdsmux.
  • Added support for S_TEXT/ASCII subtitles to the DS muxer filter.

  • Renderer: fixed a distroted picture with some VfW codecs.
  • Fixed a problem with seeking in MPEG-PS/TS.

Changes for 28/12/2006 - 31/01/2007

  • Video Renderer now uses multiple passes instead of complex shaders, and works on PS 1.1 hardware. Bicubic scaling and deinterlacing are available staring with PS 1.4.
  • Added DTS support in MPEG TS streams.
  • Added a much better deinterlacer to the Video Renderer.
  • Added Type 1 DV in AVI support to the splitter.
  • Added minimal support for reference files in MOV container (useful when playing files over http).
  • Added minimal support for Bluray m2ts files (only tested with MPEG2/AC3).
  • BITMAPINFOHEADER is now used to passthrough aspect ratio when using WMV3 video in Matroska (only works when using the Video Renderer for playback).

  • Fixed audio track switching to AAC tracks.
  • Fixed handling of wrapping PTS in MPEG TS streams.
  • Fixed video streams changing when using Matroska files with Ordered Chapters.

  • Better compatibility with DVD playback using a Video Renderer (still not perfect).

Changes for 29/10/2006 - 28/12/2006

  • [DXR] Moving window to the secondary monitor is properly handled now. Added an option to show frame timestamps (d3dx v29 is needed for that).

  • Improved video shrinking. Startup delays on UP systems eliminated.
  • Added an option to limit max number of frames buffered. Fixed seeking problems with WM files.
