Software News   Software News : DvPlayer 0.51 Released
   posted by COBRA on 23-Dec-2005 1:21:16 (4322 reads)
I'm happy to announce that a new version of DvPlayer is now available on the DvPlayer Webpage. Registered users will receive their copy via E-Mail. If you don't please contact me.

Changes in this release:

- Added subtitle support (.srt and .sub files) with automatic subtitle loading

- Added Subtitle command line options and tooltypes (font name/size, position,
colour) and a new subtitle menu to allow loading/closing of subtitles

- Added animated dithering algorithm to 16-bit modes to improve quality
(apparent colour depth) and added NODITHER tooltype and command line option

- Volume slider could be updated by audioboost in fullscreen mode where it does not get put into the window leading to a crash

- Added possibility to use system fonts in DvPlayer Skins. Updated the skin
documentation to include information about this new feature.

- Fixed a memory leak bug in the avi code

- AudioBoost now doubles the volume too, instead of just extending the volume
range

- Fixed a bug causing wrong window size when skin was changed while a movie
was stopped

Enjoy this release and I wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

It would be nice though the online shopping address was accessible via Amiga browsers. Ibrowse won˙t get there, Aweb somewhat does after a bunch of secure connection rejections (didn˙t order yet under Aweb, better to boot Debian to do so I guess).

@kvinkunx

You need to have AmiSSL v2 installed for IBrowse 2.3. Install it and reg.net will work. You can't expect to have an online shopping service without secure connection.

Has anyone tried latest versions in a CyberstormPPC ? I'm dead curious to know the results...

Yes, I did while did the testing for Stephen. I played a big (640x352) DivX video with subtitles directly from CD through the motherboard IDE. (Slowww...)
It was around 5-7 FPS on 604/180+CVPPC, the synchrone was all right, it was good enough to watch. Probably with SCSI and DMA it would be a lot better.

@Rachy

Divx gets suddenly terribly slow when the CPU can't keep up because you cannot skip decoding of frames (only the rendering) as opposed to MPEG where you can skip B frames. So with MPEG/DVD if the CPU power available is half of what is required, you can still play the movie at half of the original framerate, while with Divx if the CPU power is just a little bit less than what's needed, framerate will be 1/2 or 1/3 of the original. For classic users ACK's upcoming 400-466Mhz accelerators should do the trick
