48th VideoLAN report
Like our previous week, most of the work was focused on stabilizing features and bug fixing. Therefore, the changelog will be quite short too. :D
A new type of module was introduced, named
demux filter; they are used to filter or intercept demuxer controls commands and demuxing.
The first use case of this type of module is the ChromeCast demux filter, to show the correct playback time when using the ChromeCast, that we merged this week too.
The 2 SPDIF modules, ac3 and dts have been merged into a single one.
On Android, we've done the same kind of bugfixing as last week, and we have released 2.0.0 RC4 and pushed it on the store.
Not many issues are remaining for the release, now.
On WinRT, we are also in the bugfixing phase, with a lot of commits to make sure the application does not crash too much.
Indeed, we're closing to an open beta release, but the number of crashes was still too high, especially when using the application for a long time.
We also fixed the background audio support on Windows 10 Mobile phones; and reworked the thumbnailer.
The application should be opened in beta to everyone soon.
The iOS application got a few fixes, notably for remote playlists and XDCAM support and we're pushing an update named 2.7.8 this week.
That's it for this week, stay tuned!
