  • the command "fix a time difference" works better and makes changes that are recognized by more programs
  • The command Inlay used to hang with some videos that had been captured in DV type 1 with dropped frames. It is now fixed and the video proceeds until the end. Many thanks to bpatel who made tests and has send me a sample of such a "hanging video".

  • the datecode may be added BEFORE the filename and not only AFTER it.
Version 6.0.4
  • Release Date: Jul 29, 2006
  • a bug in the timecode detection is fixed
  • the timecode is better recognized for more cameras (thanx to Will Tegelaar). But sometimes it indicates now a null timecode instead of indicating N/A.
  • the datecode is also better recognized for some camcorders..
  • when sorting the videos by datecode, the files having N/A are now placed after the files having a valid datecode.
  • in the settings panel, tab formats, when emptying a line for the inlay of datecode, it works OK now. The del key is also active now.
  • when the audio samples have no constant bitrate (for instance in Mp3 compression) DVdate displays no longer an item "0 bits/sec"
Version 6.0.3
  • Release Date: Mar 20, 2006
  • The function keys F3 and F4 react immediately if you change the application filename, without restarting DVdate
  • some minor errors and bugs in the interface are fixed.

Version 6.0.2
  • Release Date: Mar 17, 2006
Version 6.0.1
  • Release Date: Mar 15, 2006
Version 6.0.0
  • Release Date: Mar 14, 2006
  • No installation is necessary. DVdate is contained in one single executable file. Albeit tiny in size (less than 700Ko), all the stuff needed even for inlay is included and no directshow filter will be installed on your system.
  • It can display the datecode on two lines, for example the date on the first line, and the time below.
  • It can inlay timecode
  • The inlay may be scheduled to be displayed not only at each scene change, but also at every new day.
  • It's now easier to show the sliders for modifying the position of inlay: you may still click right on the video window to launch a popup menu, but also click left on the corner at the bottom right of the video, or type ALT+I.
  • One may set two filenames of applications to be launched by F3 and F4 with the selected files open in it. it's useful to open files after beeing processed by DVdate in programs like virtual dub or media player classic.
  • The volume of audio is adjustable during preview (with + or - on the numeric keypad) and a little gauge indicates the volume level.
  • The avi files are better analysed. For example, if no filter is found on your system for decompressing the video, the audio may nevertheless be played.
  • Some DV type 2 files are strange, because they have an interleaved stream instead of a video stream (and of course an audio stream). For example, Movie Edit Pro produces such files. They are detected by DVdate (it indicates "iavs" after the DV type) and it features a command to convert these files to standard DV type2 .
  • The About panel (F1) features a new tab called test. If you click on it, the relevant directshow filters are tested and reloaded.
  • DVdate keeps better its aspect if the screen resolution is different from 1024x768; even if you use the large size fonts.
