Hello, the softdevice team (Torgeir Veimo, Martin Wache and me, Stefan Lucke) is pleased to announce a new release of vdr's softdevice plugin.
General info: Softdevice plugin enables vdr to run on your desktop with so called budget cards. You'll get vdr output via framebuffer or X11-Xv or DirectFB or vidix to your screen. Decoding is done via ffmpeg. Support of vdr versions earlier than vdr-1.3.7 has been removed. Supported vdr versions: 1.3.x, 1.4.x and 1.5.x Plugin's homepage is located at: http://softdevice.berlios.de/ Changelog since last release: 2007-04-11: softdevice-0.4.0 - xv-out: activate suspend/resume key (r/R) via configure (by Artur Skawina). - i18n: some german translations. - osd: moved aspect detection entry to "Cropping" sub menu. 2007-04-03: - add automatic border detection, based on a patch by Roland Praml. - altivec needs 16 byte alignment - compile fix for Darwin - make flag for shared linking a variable - add BGRA32 mode to SoftOsd - compile linux RTC syncing mode support only on Linux. - detect cpu endianness and define CPU_BIGENDIAN if necessary. - add video-quartz and audio-macos for Mac Os X support 2007-03-25: - fix types in GetTime(). - pts values are stored in uint64_t - almost complete rewrite of video-fb. Supported are now 15,16,24 and 32 bit depth framebuffers. The osd is rendered with software alpha blending, and it is even faster :-) 2007-03-12: - compile fix for recent ffmpeg SVN - include ffmpeg headers as 'extern "C"' - enable and use as default the software mixer. The old behaviour (use the system's mixer) can be selected via -vo oss:mixer. - increase the stepsize of the software mixer. - don't scale audio if the volume is at maximum. - set edge_width/_height always to zero. Fixes picture shiftes with the ShmClient. This is not the optimal(/final) solution... 2007-03-04: - video-dfb: Make use of SetSourceRectangle() runtime selectable, changed *SetSourceLocation* to SetSourceRectangle. 2007-02-26: - softlog: sanitycheck for zero length filenames and fix use filename member when changeing append mode. - video-dfb: shifted most prints via softlog. - video sync: preparation for new changeable sync parameters. 2007-02-24: - Makefile: add --remove-destination , so that "make plugins" does not disturb a running vdr. - softlog: added indicator for priority I(nfo), E(rror), D(ebug), T(race). - video-vidix: shifted prints via softlog. 2007-02-13: - fix gettid compile error on some systems. 2007-02-11: - Some more options selectable via log menu. 2007-02-10: - Pause the playback of recordings when suspended (by Marko Mäkelä) - add configurable logging - report Xrun audio duration 2007-01-28: - don't lock NULL pictures in cVideo::GetLockLastPic(). - implement avcodec_decode_audio2() interface to libavcodec. - set ic->bp.is_streamed to true, to avoid calls to unimlemented seek method. - add architecture "x86_64" to configure and report unsupported architectures. - add StealToBitmap() for OSD in grabbed image. - add OSD with alpha blending to grabbed images. 2007-01-27: - video-dfb: - Limit VIA-unichrome name compare to 19 chars. - Detect a patched DirectFB version for VIA CN700 support, and set some parameters for video layer V3: pixelformat YUY2, NO hardware decoding support . 2007-01-20: - Fixed video-dfb for VIA-unichrome with current DirectFB cvs. In directfbrc pixelformat=AiRGB must be specified. 2007-01-15: - introduce yuv420_to_rgb15() (mmx acceleration still missing). - properly start cShmRemote thread in ShmClient. - avoid "BadWindow" errors by using an errror handler. Also fix "BadWindow" errors which occur after the xscreensaver has once been active. - fix vidWin for non zero VidX1 and VidY1. 2006-12-17: - Silence some warnings with gcc 4.1.1. - Adjust MMX and C version of fast_memcpy() to the same return type. - Fix wrong colors in yuv420_to_yuy2() when all MMX is disabled. 2006-12-13: - don't undefine X cursur on keypresses, to prevent the fake shift key press from producing flickering of the mouse cursor. - fix possible segfault. - fix possible division by zero. - comment out fake key sending syslog message - add cOSSAudioOut::GetDelay() (supplied by Lubos Novak). 2006-12-03: - applied patch from Matthias Schwarzott for vdr uint64 change. - unify yuv420_to_rgbXX() and yv12_to_yuy2_line() functions to allow usage in CopyScalePicBuf() - change CopyPicBuf_YUV420P_to_YUY() to a general YUV420P to planar conversion method - introduce the possibility to scale the video window (for yaepg). - detection of and support for the yaepg-patch. - add open sound system support (contributed by Lubos Novak). GetDelay() is commented out, this means the A/V synchronization is broken. - add open sound system detection to configure 2006-11-26: - use brackets in WRITE_RGB16 macro, introduce WRITE_RGB15 (untested) and ARGB_TO_RGB. - introduce FillPicBuffer() - make it possible to use a color key other than 0x000000 for video-xv, video-shm and ShmClient - change the default color key of xv-out to 0x001a0f00LL - add support for X11 drivers without xv support 2006-11-22: - remove cShmVideo::Process() method, and instead signal PICT_SIG from cShmRemote to simulate a timeout. - fix ShmClient not forwarding to key presses to vdr on AMD64 (patch by [EMAIL PROTECTED]) 2006-11-20: - send fake key events to disable any screen saver (patch by [EMAIL PROTECTED]) 2006-11-16: - fix wrong colors when using GRAB with the cle266 hardware decoder (patch by Laz) - better colorkey support in SoftOsd.c, with interface to video.c - fix a bug which causes bad resolution on upscaling - fix a bug which causes segfaults when upscaling to huge images - reintroduce the chessboard pattern for pseudo alpha blending - use WRITE_RGB macros from utils.h 2006-11-11: - !! removed support for vdr versions older than vdr-1.3.7 !! 2006-11-08: - change PIX_FMT_RGB32 to PIX_FMT_RGBA32 to support older ffmpeg versions 2006-11-07: - add yuv to rgb conversion routines for rgb32, rgb24, bgr24 and rgb16 - audio-alsa: restore samplerate after a unsuccessfull change request - add scaling methods with yuv to rgb conversion - add packed pixel format support to ClearPicBuffer() - move AllocatePicBuffer(), DeallocatePicBuffer(), GetFormatBPP and GetChromaSubSample() out of cPicBufferManager - add packed pixel format to PicBuffer - add GetLockLastPic() to video.h - add GrabImage() support. Currently there is no OSD in the grabbed images. - some more debugging info in softdevice.c - add explanations to error messages in ShmClient.c - use SEM_UNDO on PICT_MUT semaphore -- Stefan Lucke _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
