  • VSFilter: Added RealText support
  • VSFilter: Fix rare seeking issue with VobSubs
  • VSFilter: Fix potential jitter issues with \pos overrides in VSFilter.
  • VSFilter: Really fix two subtitle rasterisation bugs: Go back to old pixmix/pixmix2 architecture originally used in Subtitler and early versions of VSFilter, implement an SSE2 version of pixmix2 and ensure (widened-region minus fill) math doesn't underflow. Completely fixes "\be1 stray dots" and "vector \clip kills alpha" bugs. Also add several comments explaining the rasterisation code.
  • VSFilter: Add support for variable strength and animated \be, and implement gaussian \blur as an alternative. (\blur also does edge blur like \be but in a nicer way.)
  • VSFilter: Add new override tags \xbord \ybord \xshad \yshad to control border and shadow size separately in X and Y directions.
  • VSFilter: Add "inverse clip" tag \iclip to specify what to hide rather than what to show.

Version 6.4.9.0
  • Release Date: Mar 21, 2006
  • A couple of more bugs were fixed.
Version 6.4.8.9
  • Release Date: Mar 11, 2006
Version 6.4.8.8 V2
  • Release Date: Mar 6, 2006
  • matroska splitter fixed
Version 6.4.8.8
  • Release Date: Mar 5, 2006
  • Changes:
    • two pass bicubic shader, bilinear more optimized
    • dropped subtitles are loaded instead of opening them as a media file
    • thumbnail image generator
    • dsm demuxer can output individual streams into files (context menu -> demux...), the raw data is corrected if possible, like subtitles are output to srt/ssa/vobsub, frame header added to aac, wave header to pcm, etc.
    • better support for quicktime files by the mp4 splitter, more track types are recognized and also reads zlib compressed headers
    • dvd navigator's software dvd region check is disabled using the detours lib, there is still a hw region check built in the firmware of the drives, unless it was flushed with a region free firmware it will still not work and may cause strange problems like freezing the player
    • the mpeg ts splitter can repack h264 streams in "mp4 style" packets for decoders so they won't crash (ffdshow, coreavc)
    • "next aspect ratio preset" command
    • yv12/i420 is no longer a disallowed format when using "vmr9 (renderless)" as the renderer, holding the ctrl key when loading a file will still disable it, the current display drivers should not have that color conversion bug anymore but just in case...
    • vmr9 (renderless) mixer mode available, it allows deinterlacing and other vmr9 features, off by default because it is slightly slower
    • Haali's video renderer can be directly selected in the options (subtitling works, shaders don't)
    • mpeg decoder sse2 optimizations (most noticable at hdtv resolution), optional interlaced output, new "field shifter" deinterlacing mode
    • nero's "vobsub" inside mp4 supported
    • clicking another window on a different monitor while mpc is playing in fullscreen will not restore it to normal size anymore, if another application grabs the focus, its name and window title will be displayed on the status bar of mpc
    • graph builder of the filter graph manager was rewritten (again), let's hope nothing is more broken than it was :)
    • new built-in async reader for udf sources, currently only works with the internal mpeg splitter because others aren't prepared for constantly growing files, use the following syntax as the file name: udp://[]:/[], where "multicastgroupip" is optional and "mediasubtypeguid" can be used to specify the subtype of the stream, for example udp://:1234/{e06d8023-db46-11cf-b4d1-00805f6cbbea} means transport stream, it will also work fine without the subtype, just selecting the right splitter will take a little longer
    • the checked state of the "enable subtitles" menu item is preserved, this means you can disable subtitling with the vmrs now without having to turn it off for each newly opened file
    • floating toolbars are saved, next time mpc opens they will appear floated and at the same position on the desktop
    • normalizer/booster was moved to the audio switcher, to avoid high spikes lowering the volume too much the normalizer regains 5% per second now
    • "quick open file" menu (similar to vlc's)
    • options/filters section was redone a bit, the internal filters have their own property pages, mpc won't be controlling them directly anymore
    • there is a changelog this time! :)
  • other fixes:
    • random crash when seeking files with mp3 audio streams and using the internal decoder
    • compatibility with the oggds/vorbis decoder restored (it is a bug in the ogm vorbis decoder btw)
    • blank checklist elements in options (external filters now, overrides before)
    • run-time error when loading files with certain unicode characters in the filename
    • unicode id3 tags, byte order of le/be utf-16 tags was mixed up
    • repeated languages loading vobsub subtitles
    • dvd angle switching (angle number was off by 1 for many years lol ;)
    • long delay when doing "seek to keyframe" with the avi splitter
    • fading dvd subpics (~ multiple entries in DCSQT)
  • bad news:
    • resource ids were cleaned up and renumbered, the old command assignments are lost, sorry.
    Version 6.4.8.7
