@clsid2 clsid2 released this Feb 25, 2021

Changes from 1.9.9 to 1.9.10:

Changes/additions/improvements:

  • Some optimizations for the seek preview functionality
  • Seek preview now gets hidden when dragging the seekbar
  • Renamed "System Default" video renderer to "Video Mixing Renderer 7". This to prevent people from thinking this ancient renderer is the preferred one. Also changed order of the available renderers to put the recommended ones at the top.
  • The player now tries to parse JSON output from youtube-dl even when that has encountered an error. This fixes loading of youtube playlists that contain deleted videos.
  • Added a timeout in LAV Splitter code to prevent the player from freezing in case of certain network connection errors during playback of online streams
  • Added support for text color tags in WebVTT subtitles
  • Subtitle render buffer is now disabled by default. It doesn't provide any noticeable performance benefit for most users.
  • A few other small changes

Fixes:

  • Fixed subtitle text encoding bug that caused wrong characters to be displayed (regression in 1.9.9)
  • Fixed issue that caused wrong keyframe to be show in seek preview window. Now a seek will go to the same frame as shown in the preview.
  • Fixed issue in sub picture buffer implementation that could result in reduced rendering performance for animated subtitles in certain cases
  • A few other small fixes

@clsid2 clsid2 released this Feb 9, 2021

Changes from 1.9.8 to 1.9.9:

Updates:

  • Updated LAV Filters to 0.74.1-92-g88da5

Changes/additions/improvements:

  • Added video preview functionality to the seekbar
    You can enable this in: Options > Tweaks
    For performance reasons, preview is only shown in case of local file playback. It is disabled for online streams and spinning discs.
    Preview is currently also only enabled for files that have keyframes for fast seeking.
    To avoid interference with the main video playback, preview does not use hardware accelerated decoding.
    Don't enable preview if you have a slow computer that already struggles with normal video playback.
  • Added menu entries and hotkeys for toggling shaders on/off
  • Added support for CUE sheets
  • Increased default value for number of recent files that is remembered from 20 to 40
  • Reduced minimum allow playback rate from 0.125x to 0.05x
  • Some seeking improvements. Unprocessed seeks can no longer queue up when seeking is slow.
  • The internal audio renderer can now fallback to default audio device if it fails to initialize the output device that is selected in the options

Fixes:

  • Fixed some issues with parsing M3U playlists
  • Fixed issue with opening online .asx playlist
  • Fixed GDI resource leak in dark theme
  • Fixed hang with MPC Video Renderer if max subpic texture size was set to VIDEO
  • Fixed automatic metadata based rotation with MPC Video Renderer
  • Several crash fixes
