- several organizational changes
- new Maintenance tab, primarily for setup external libraries used by the component. "Check for updates" has also been moved there
- ffmpeg was embedded in the component. Now it has comprehensive support of all needed formats so there are nothing conceptual to wait in further versions. Though possibility to setup external ffmpeg still available using Maintenance tab.
Accordingly there are no preconf_audio variant anymore.
Switch between component's variants now resets only Maintenance tab and video enable/disable option.
Default value of Formats to ignore was changed. Better to reset whole Audio preferences tab. Option Allow seeking over M4A (from Advanced component preferences) was removed as obsolete
- alternative libcurl now should be downloaded and configured manually using Maintenance tab. Currently the one reason when it is required is to use different SSL backend under Wine because Windows native SSL backend, that is used in component by default, may not work under it. Note for Linux users was updated accordingly, libcurl binary also can be found there
- external LAV Fitlers and VSFilter binaries now can be selected in Maintenance tab without need to register them in the system.
Now minimum required LAV Filters version is 0.67. It is the first version that has complete support of MPEG DASH streams (aka MP4 VO in component) which is most appropriate variant for video playback. This is strong enough reason to limit minimum version. Default value of Formats to ignore, Priority of formats was changed. Better to reset Video preferences tab
- extended title parsing rule. Should properly parse more titles still keeping a false positive at low enough level. At least it supposed to be so, please report if it is not. The rule will not be selected automatically, reset Features preferences tab or select it manually
- more precise bitrate calculation. For single-stream files it is now calculated by file size. Better this way because sometimes actual bitrate may significantly differ from the expected by quality tag. Good example is best Opus quality for which initially was used ~160kbps but now it often presented in ~128kbps
- improvements for Vimeo. First of all, it was broken, fixed now. And added site-specific metadata support for view count, like count (Vimeo does not have dislikes), upload date, uploader
- Youtube, proper recognition of 5.1 audio streams without need for deep ('Slow') analysis. At this moment it looks like 5.1 audio appears only for newly uploaded videos (of course if they initially have 5.1) and it seems started to appear 11-11-2015
