Latest Revision:-__ 30 OCT 2010 _- Build AA30

- Volume Control Slider
__The new [V] button brings up a Volume Control window.
__that has 2 sliders and a number of tick boxes.
__The 1st slider is a conventional volume control.
__The 2nd slider is for the audio Limiter.
__The Limiter is useful when ads are much louder than the program.
__Boost settings are handled separately for different types of audio track,
__and will be retained across sessions as an option.
__Misc improvements to Automatic Volume Control option (AVC).

- Space bar toggles Play/Pause.
__Previously this only operated if already playing.
__Now it can be used to start playing as well.
__Note that Pause is different to Stop (Esc key),
__as Stop aligns on an I-frame, suitable for From/To marking,
__but Pause just freezes the decoder mid-stream.

- Small change in terminology.
__"Append File" is now called "Add File".

- New Time option - REL and TOD together.
__New option shows both Relative time and recorded Time Of Day together,
__to avoid the need to change back and forth between REL and TOD.
____Menu - Misc - Time Format - REL & TOD.

- Ability to change Luminance button preset values.
__Adjust sliders for the new setting that you want;
__Click the [@] button;
__Then click the button you want changed to this new setting.

- Moved "Swap U-V" and "Negative" into Luminance dialog.
__Originally these were menu options. Now they are buttons.

- Keyboard shortcuts for Luminance buttons [B], [C] and [D].
__Shift-L (B=Bold); Ctrl-L (D=Default); Shift-Ctrl-L (C).
__Alt-L (toggle the Luminance enable on/off).
__Quicker than bringing up the Luminance dialog to click on a button.

- Adjusted processing of command line parameters.
__There is a problem with the "no-confirm" option, so it is turned off.

- Better navigation when average bitrate much lower than Nominal.
__Large jumps will now be calculated using average bitrate rather than nominal.
__Fastback option now updates during preview.

- Drop Padding option extended.
__Drop Padding will now drop Vob NAV Packs as well.
__The option will also temporarily turn on "Parse All Pkts".
__Dropping will be inhibited if saving to VOB
__or if using Vob Preservation option.

- Selective saving of audio tracks.
__Fixed bugs in the "Save Parts" dialog.
__NOT TESTED MUCH, as I don't have many multi-audio files.

- Transport Stream PID controls cleaned-up.
__When viewing a Transport Stream (TS),
__the Menu - View - PID controls are easier to use.
__Just tick "Current" once you are viewing the PID that you are interested in.
__To go back to seeing all PIDs, tick "All".
__Fixed a bug in display of TS streams.

- Misc minor changes.

Latest Revision:-__ 31 JAN 2009 _- Build 9131

- New Support Forum.
_ New forum on EzBoard :- Rocket Jetty
_ The old forum stopped working.

Change Log for this Pre-Alpha :-

- Reduced tendency to sleep for a few seconds when closing audio.
_ This was very annoying, but it is now significantly reduced.
_ However, there is still an issue with fast play sound getting too far ahead.

- DISABLED 2 OPTIONS :- DEEP PARSING, PARSE ALL PACKETS.
_ There are bugs, and it makes my brain hurt, so these are now OFF.

- Auto-Split output by Clip.
_ Saves each clip into a separate file in a single action.
_ This is the RECOMMENDED approach, for compatibility with other players.
_ File - Save PARTS - Split - @clip.

- Option to automatically added Clip number to Output File Name.
_ When manually saving each clip as you go along,
_ it will automatically add the clip number to the name of the output file.
_ Menu - Output - Default Extension - Add Clip Number.

- Auto-Preview on BMP snapshot.
_ To avoid being surprised by the effect of the difference in Luminance settings
_ between Overlay and RGB modes, a preview of how the frame looks in RGB mode
_ will be shown, together with the luminance controls to allow adjustment.
_ Closing the Luminance controls commits the BMP .

_ By default, this Auto-Preview action only occurs on the first snap from the file,
_ but this can be changed in the Menu - Output - BMP - Auto-Preview.

_ Expert users can modify the effect of the Luminance preset buttons. INI file :-
_ "LumPresets=gamma1,contrast1,brightness1;gamma2,contrast2,brightness2;".

- CUE mode throttle.
_ The CUE button seemed way too fast on a Pentium 4,
_ so now it will default to being around the same speed as a P3 CUE.
_ If you prefer the faster CUE on a P4, then turn OFF :-
_ MENU - PREVIEW - TIMING METHOD - NOT SO FAST.

- Crop Top and Bot Edges.
_ Some videos have annoying dots on the top or bottom edge,
_ can now be hidden from view.
_ Menu - View - Cropping- Crop Top and Bot Edges.

- Option to invert view (Vertical Flip).
_ Menu - View - Special FX - Invert. [Shift-I]

- Playback volume handling changes.
_ Volume limiting option for quieter preview of loud files.
_ Reduces the playback ceiling to roughly 70% of maximum.
_ Volume boost and ceiling values can be overridden in the INI file.
_ Auto reset of Audio track number if selected track not found.
_ Hysteresis on Automatic Volume Control.

- New action - Split Selection.
_ The portion of the current selection up to the current view becomes a clip,
_ the selection is updated to exclude that section,
_ so that the new From point is set to the current view position,

- Post-Process command line can now be much longer.

- Batch command line can specify multiple input file names.
_ There is a slight bug - the picture does not show until you navigate.
_ EG: Mpg2Cut2 "File1.mpg" "File2.mpg" "File3.mpg"

- Toolbar options.
_ Toolbar Buttons and Scrollbar can now be toggled separately.
_ F12 = Scrollbar Only_ _ Alt-F12 = Buttons Only _ _ F11 = Both.
_ Toggling and External players are now under the Window heading.

- Settings can be saved for Zoom and Aspect Ratio override.

- Allow for Packless Program Streams.

- Tidy up of RGB mode and Fast 420 yuy2 chroma deinterlacer.

- Fixed bug in LPCM decode where packet split across block.

- Smarter alignment of leading audio packets.
_ Try to avoid false syncword bit patterns.

- Experimental option to unmux audio in PES format.
_ Allows retention of timing info in PES hdr. Still experimental.

- Correctly report Mpeg Audio Extensions.
_ Mpeg 2.5 and Low Sampling Frequency extensions will now report correctly.

- Slow-1 now adjusts for difference between silent FPS and sound FPS.
_ Use when viewing silent film that was telecined too fast. (Keyboard shortcut = 's')

- Allow for bug in ATI driver.
_ Some ATI drivers sometimes give sloping video on first display. To fix :-
_ MENU - VIEW - TECHNICAL - Overlay Notification - ATI sloping.

- Manual allowance for Monitor Aspect ratio problems.
_ A new INI file line wth the keyword "N3" has been created.
_ The first value on that line is a percentage amount to adjust for Monitor issues.
_ EG. If the image on the monitor is 5% too wide,
_ then set "N3=-5" to reduce the image width by 5%.
_ Leave the other parameters on that line unchanged. Reserved for future use.

- Experimental Audio read-ahead option.
_ Experimental feature preparatory to possible lip sync during preview, eventually.

- Misc minor changes.

- Warning for Panasonic DVD recorders :-
_I still need to do a lot more work for compatibility.
_E.g. Long clips still seem to have problems for some reason.

- Warning for Satellite users :-
_The Time Stamp correction option is NOT compatible with Satellite.


Latest Revision:-__ 1 July 2007 _- Build 7701
- Tidy up of RGB mode display.

- Attempt to fix blank video overlay in Windows Vista.
_ To use the new fix, turn OFF the old "Never Use Overlay" in the View menu.
_ If the new fixdoes not work for you, then turn the old method back on.

_ Since I do not actually have Windows Vista, this is not very well tested.
_ Thanks to Avery Lee for coming up with the automatic fix technique.

- Finer alignment of leading audio packets.
_ Previously PTS matching was limited to the nearest existing audio PTS,
_ which was rather crude. Now it will calculate to the nearest audio frame.

- Fast audio preview extended to higher speeds.

- Demuxing will now recognize DD+ style audio.
_ The program cannot play DDPLUS audio,
_ but it can demux the DD+ audio from Mpeg2 based EVO files.
_ NO support for mpeg-4 / H264 based files.

- Optional removal of Padding packets.
_ Normally for use with Non-VOB variable bitrate Program Streams,
_ can be used more extensively by turning off VOB preservation and
_ by unlocking the System Header in the output options.

- Allow for clip shorter than audio delay.

- Misc minor changes.

- Warning for Panasonic DVD recorders :-
_I still need to do a lot more work for compatibility.
_E.g. Long clips still seem to have problems for some reason.

- Warning for Satellite users :-
_The Time Stamp correction option is NOT compatible with Satellite.

Latest Revision:-__ 17 SEPT 2006 _- Build 6917

- Toolbar Extended.
_ Extra ugly buttons for Preview/Playback.
_ Scrollbar moved below the main toolbar.
- Keyboard command "V" = Volume Boost.
_ Previously the "A" command did both this and track cycling,
_ but now the 2 actions are separated.
- Optimized Deep Parsing.
_ People with fast CPUs may not notice much difference,
_ unless you also have an even faster I/O sub-system.
_ Overhead of Deep Parsing & Parse All Packets is now quite small.
_ Hand optimized the byte level scanning to reduce CPU load.
_ Reads are now aligned to end on 32k boundary.
- Cleaner handling of Satellite / unaligned Mpeg streams.
- Experimental interface for use by IgCutter.
_ Option to pass FROM and TO selection points via parameter.
_ Various limitations apply in this basic implementation.
_ For more info, see Mpg2Cut2.TXT.
- Command line parameter option "//PLAY".
_ Selected file/s will be played upon opening.
_ The associated action "Play_Mpg2Cut2" can be set up using:
_ _ _ menu - Misc - Associate With File Types.
- Better handling of read error during copy.
_ This is to allow partial extraction of data from a faulty disk.
_ If the "OK" button is clicked after a read error,
_ the program will try to resume after seeking forward to
_ the next 32k boundary, or further if contiguous errors found.
_ The process is slow, because of I/O sub-system retry attempts.
_ Note that the presence of read errors is a very bad sign,
_ especially if reading from a hard disk ! 8-(
- Better handling of extra long pack siizes from TwinHan DTV.
_ Only impacted the "Include TO frame" option.
- Tool Tips can be disabled.
- Prevent single frame mode from triggeering frame dropper.

Last Revision:-__ 02 JUNE 2006 _- Build 6602

- Video Header Correction.
_ DTV files with corrupt Width, Height or Chroma format,
_ can be corrected during output using a new Parsing option:-
_ _ _ _ _ "Fix Errors In Headers"
_ "Deep Parsing" is recommended when fixing errors.

- No disabling of menu items and buttons.
_ Rather than disabling some actions during preview,
_ those actions will now stop playback before proceeding.

- Better validation of potential Audio header during preview.
_ Should reduce false triggering of Mpeg audio preview.

- BMP snapshot no longer advances frame.
- Miscellaneous API Changes.
_ Hopefully a reduced chance of deadlocks.

- Slightly improved PTS matching for Panasonic DVD recordings.
_ Panasonic Timestamp reset can be overridden,
_ using "Adjust Time Stamps" in menu - Output - Parse options.
_ Only works with single clip for output, NOT multiple clips.
_ Needs a lot more work.

_ Only works with single clip for output, NOT multiple clips.
_ Needs a lot more work.


Last Revision:-__ 12 April 2006 _- Build 6412

- Fixed incorrect description in "Force Aspect" message.
_ The message contained the wrong description of the new Aspect Ratio.

- Drag'n'Drop Folder of mpg files.
_ To load a whole bunch of flies at once.
_ Courtesy of "WeWantWideScreen".

- Menu command to invoke external players.
_ Currently supports Media Player Classic and PowerDVD,
_ Windows Media Player, Creative Play Centre & VideoLanC
_ Courtesy of "WeWantWideScreen".

- Allow Deep Parsing without Parsing All Packets.
_ You can more safely TURN OFF "Parse All Packets" to run a bit faster.
_ Previously, Deep Parsing would force parsing of All Packets for safety.
_ Now, they are quite independent settings,
_ allowing faster output when no need for All Packets to be parsed.

_ Note: You will STILL need BOTH "Parse All Packets" & "Deep Parsing",
_ IF you need to fix header bitrates throughout a file, not just the start.

- RGB mode preview - performance improvement.
_ When the video card overlay is not available,
_ a quick and dirty decode to RGB will be the default,
_ rather than the slow, more exact RGB decode.
_ The preview will look a bit uglier, but it's faster.
_ If I figure out what the calculations are being performed
_ in the $%@# undocumented assembler code,
_ then I might improve the fast decode further.
_ Or - someone can just tell me...

- Demux option to allow audio only extraction.
- Mpeg-1 demux now supported.
_ This does NOT include time stamp matching.
_ If an Mpeg-1 video stream is wrapped in Mpeg-2 packets,
_ then it shall be listed as "Mpeg1+2".

- Fixed bug in Clip List Reload.
_ Still occasionally crashes though.
_ Just relaunch program if crash occurs.

- Toolbar font more readable on high-res displays.
_ So old folks can see what is what.

- Scroll bar can now interrupt playing.
_ Previously Scroll bar was ignored while playing.
_ Still a bit crude, needs more work.

- Option to always avoid using Overlay.
_ Allows for situation where overlay driver is not compatible.
_ Menu - View - Technical - Never Use Overlay.

- Marginally better support for Transport Streams.
_ Seems OK viewing Australian TS streams,
_ but not with most European streams.

- Some small bug fixes.
_ Audio boost now retreats in smaller steps, but more quickly.
_ Backward GOP and Forward File tweaked a little bit...

- Some API changes
