  support external builds with ffmpeg libraries as the API is changing every month
* fixing some bugs in way too many places to list
* switching to use size_t and off_t  system types
* add support to seek in ffmpeg opened files
* simplification in various parts of code
* added few more supported keys in player
* reworked audio buffering inside ReadStreamA class - uses less memory and gives
  more precise time calculation
* some cosmetic API changes
* added more documentation about various bits of AVI streams to header files

2008/11/15
* cleaned i386 build again (using 64bits most of the time)
* cleaned soem debian package building warnings
* cleaned ffmpeg Makefiles

2008/11/13

2008/04/24
* again sync with ffmpeg
* fixing some missing lock in the render (no more occasional locking on startup)
* cosmetics

2008/01/20
* as usual try to keep in sync with ever changing ffmpeg's API
* lots of new codecs from ffmpeg are now available in avifile
* avifile is now being developed on 64bit machine :) this means
  it should compile & work well at least on x86_64 platform
* of course compilers always finds new bugs - so couple of them
  were fixed
* slightly better support for RPM should be also vissible by
  updated spec file
* cleaned usage of some static data - trying to reduce the size slightly
* playing with -fvisibility=hidden flag

2007/07/18
* hmm not realy many entries here ;) - but just the package should build
* fixed stupid bug in configuration storage 
* cleanup make distcheck again
* prepared for Debian package release
* and of course mostly in sync with ffmpeg libraries

2006/09/10
* Fixex some nasty bug in AviReadStream which caused bad sound synchronization
  at the end of avi stream - this bug was probably introduced with packetized
  stream reading
* internal Flush no longer throws away the initial audio packet
  when playback starts
* GetPos for audio stream was not precise
* as usual fixing small bug in various places

2006/08/27
* tried to have configure.in again automake-1.4 compatible
* possible fixed the race problem with right button movie menu
* fixed many tracing strings
* simplified some code in renderer
* bugfixed avm::string.sprintf

2006/08/22

  all their codecs/muxers (still not yet fully automated and
  based on my local shell script - shall be fixed in future)

* ok the last release has one stupid bug in subtitle reader - fixed
  copying of subtitle lines where emptyline weren't copyied.
* as usually ffmpeg is regulary updated

2004/06/04
* yep - the time is running, everyone is using mplayer so who actully cares,
  but still it's worth to mention that some bug in threading was
  fixed with 2.6 kernels and aviplay usage
* Xft subtitles are now rendered with line breaking so if the line
  is too long, overlaping words are moved to the next line - this should
  be probably convigurable option we will see
* ffmpeg is contiuosly updated - but for now the framerate logic
  is changed way too offect so it doesn't currently work

2003/03/10
* qt-dir  changed to  qt-prefix
* fixed few other minor problems with configure
* started to implement support for ffmpeg options

2003/02/19
* mostly fixing minor bugs and focusing more on ffmpeg
* among stupid bugs has been the one which has caused compilation
  hasn't been using CPU flags by default (hmm sometimes it's probably
  worth to check things in standard environment)
* another Debian sync

2003/01/30
* fixed small bug in configure causing usage of FT2 include everywhere

2003/01/26
* added some code to play to the last byte from the OSS audio buffer

2003/01/20
* fixed some compilation problem

2003/01/17
* fixed timestamp for b-framed divx & ffmpeg

  to outgoing frames and this works for avi & mpeg)

2003/01/08
* mainly squashing many outstanding bugs so it will be a bit
  more usable
* subtitles should be now working again (-subcp for selection iconv
  codepage)

2002/12/03

  functionality)

2002/11/17
* implemented support for OSS mixer so volume slider does something useful
* ok redesigned some timing things - should be now simplier

2002/11/13
* hmm it's interesting how the bugs tends to repear in some
  parts of the source code :) so fixed quite a few problems
  with incorrectly played movies
* added support for 411P colorspace for some NTSC DV movies
  decompressed via ffmpeg
* simplier and faster timing routines (again - interesting
  how much could be saved by removing few virtual method calls)

2002/11/11
* during weeked played a bit more with ffmpeg
* fixing some bugs introduced with some latest cleanups

2002/11/07
* hmm relase 0.7.17 seemed to be a little bit more buggy then I've
  expected for some users - now reported bugs have been at least
  fixed (and did I mentioned who do not report bugs can't expect such
  bugs will be solved fast)
* working on new Subtitle rendering which should also be able to use
  freetype2 library directly (end eventually draw text into the
  movie - now when there is Crop support this might be usefull)
* also FontDialog is somewhat less functinal then it used to be
  (yet this is known issue at this moment - no need to report)

2002/10/31
* hmm I'm somewhat forget about this log
* ok now we support WMA decoding via
* Cropping is now support for RGB modes as well
* options are now better supported (yet it's not finished)

  ffmpeg codecs - and lot of them has been added
* as usually lot's of fixes

2002/10/01
* number of improvements and fixes
* support for multiple filename list
* fixes for avicat
* DMO isn't usable - very hard...

2002/09/13
* released 0.7.16 version
* working on DMO support (aka WM9)

2002/09/09
* more vidix fixes (and played a bit with mga)

2002/09/05
* vidix works somehow for 'root' user now
  (though now root user is actually forced to use vidix)
  this might be disabled for next few releases until some
  reasonable usable UI will be made for this.

2002/09/03
* fixed few bugs in an old mp3 decoder so it should be a little bit
  more stable

2002/09/02
* added some patch to avoid crashes with wm8 and gcc-3.2

2002/08/31
* added gamma correction also for X11 renderer

2002/08/16
* fixed reading of windows position

2002/08/12
* fixed some memory leak in rgb conversion/rendering
  (this isn't really tested - 99% of time I'm using YUV)
* fixed some stupid bugs in YV12 I420 conversions (I420 is now
  a little bit better supported)
* slightly fixed capturing code - shouldn't crash at least

2002/08/07
* removed usage of %Ld from library
  - looks like freebsd has some serious problems with this one
* fixed ffmpeg libav Makefile and configure so grab.c isn't compiled
* fixed stupid bug in ReadStreamA where return 0 has been used
  instead of break - caused memory leak during seek
* fixed another 'seek' memory leak issue with libmad usage

2002/08/06
* improved audio VBR support
* some fixes for freebsd (no complains - no fixes)

2002/08/04
* lowered memory usage for avi reading

2002/08/01
* support of download of multiple video streams
  (video_stream > 128 - good value to use would be 255)

2002/07/31
* ok now I could finaly watch TV Nova archive :) without any
  major problems with seeking and without problems in decoding
  URLs in received headers from server which has broken configuration.
* fixed some remaining major bugs in seeking code now it's
  quite nice to use.

2002/07/30
* still improving networking code
* fixing stupid bug in mmx detection and avirec parameter printing
* minor fix for one subtitle type (better handling of broken files)

2002/07/28
* cleaning asf code - but still it's not very good
* cleaning code to make it again compilable without AVM_COMPATIBLE

2002/07/25
* reworked Asf network reading code - futher changes will come
  so I could finaly select those things I'd like to actually
  hear & view
* applied two patch files by
  borders for TV by Jindrich Makovicka <makovick@kmlinux.fjfi.cvut.cz>
  Theme selector by Tomas Konir <moje@molly.vabo.cz>
  for aviplay (this should be probably made
  a little bit more universal and usable for avirecompress
  and avicap - FIXME later)

2002/07/24
* cleaning some code mainly in player
* better support for streamed files - should be a little bit more
  comfortable now

2002/07/20
* fixed bug which has been non existent audio streaming for
  streams without audio tracks

2002/07/19
* some fixes for codecs sorting as now it's a little bit more complicated

2002/07/18
* added  new way to retrieve CodecInfo list
  CodecInfo::Get - it takes few option to get some selected codecs
  which will match some criterium
  It might cause some minor incompatibilies as video_codecs and
  audio_codecs are no longer sorted and have the same order over the
  whole program live (as they are used for referencies it's order
  can't be changed - it would cause mysterious ugly problems)
* fixed some stupid ugly bug which might have caused weird
  crashes during aviplay reconfiguration.
* codecs are now selected only from those which are usable for
  currently played movie - if you want to see all of them
  run aviplay without movie.
* played a bit with QSplitter class

2002/07/16
* added some code to repair incorrect mp3 headers
* more safe code which throws away non-mp3 packets in mp3 stream

2002/07/11
* fixed some seeking problem with ffmpeg

2002/07/10
* added --disable-fpic options for disabling compilation with -fPIC flags
  on systems with older autotools (users of newer auto* tools should
  use --without-pic)
* more fixes for avirecompress - it seems to be working again a little bit
  (yet I wouldn't recommed it's usage at this moment)

2002/07/09
* fixed some stupid bugs with sound seeking (alignment has been ignored
  for WMA audio tracks - bad idea)
* fixed some compilation problems
* code now contains code for playing streams via ffmpeg libav library
  but it's not yet usable
* some fixes for avirecompresor
* divx4linux now plays old divx files again

2002/07/03
* removed some more throws from the code so it's more safe for
  optimalized compilations with broken gcc compilers (aka 2.95.4)
  (sometimes I get the felling their main intention is to eliminate
  the usage of C++ completely because the bugs are far more scary then
  normal user might think of and users do not use the latest version
  of gcc compiler)

2002/06/27
* cleaned ASF->Asf class naming together with iterators

2002/06/26
* started to cleanup win32 loader part - to be more portable
  across player with fewer modifications necessary

2002/06/25
* checked support for mjpeg and fixed many bugs and problems
  so these files are now playable by ffmpeg  (or sometimes
  by OS Mjpeg plugin - (now internaly renamed as ijpg to match
  mplayer terminology)

2002/06/22
* thrown away throws in plugins

2002/06/18
* more asf interator cleanup
* enabled WMV1 support in ffmpeg
* fixed AC3 reading bug (sometimes too small buffers were used)

2002/06/18
* few more fixes in ReadDirect - checking quality of avi copy with
  avirecompress - still it's broken

2002/06/13
* fixing some memory leaks/probs discovered by valgrind detector (very nice)
* a bit restructuralized sources in aviread so it's more logical

2002/06/11
* asf stream reading in packets
* cleanup of some test sources so automake1.6 will be quiet

2002/06/09
* started reorganization of stream reader - will be made in several steps
  for now avi stream reading in packets

2002/06/06
* reverted to original <0 topside-down - it's documnted and there is
  no real reason to change so leaving it as is - expect no
  all bitmapinfo formats returns  upside-down format at least
* fixed stupid bug with open file dialog opening
* better xfree3.3.6 lock-free toggle-fullscreen
* saving few more clocks by removing some memcpy in audio renderer
* also using MMXEXT for stride memcopy to get better transfer speed

2002/06/03
* changing upside/down logic for BitmapInfo - I hope there
  is no application which would be using/interpreting internal
  values directly

2002/05/31
* spending some time with ffmpeg optimalizations to gain few more CPU
  cycles
* finaly added support draw called in ffmpeg

2002/05/21
* still removing some useless parts of code to make the code cleaner
* fixing some various minor problem which arised during this cleanup
* added extra check to get even faster seeks (I hope no one will
  complain that we are to slow now :)

2002/05/19
* significantly simplified code for scheduling - removed various junk
  from this code which has accumulated over the time and is no longer
  necessary
* fixed various  'read from stream' issues
* rechecked my collection of buggy avi samples - interesting how many bug
  has managed to reappear - they were fixed again

2002/05/08
* fixed resampling support
* few Makefile updates so there should be less problems with mixed
  Qt instalation and library linking

2002/05/07
* fixing some code path in audio decoding - so another memcpy is saved
  (though it's been quite small - like 1200b)
  still mp3 decoding seems to be delayed by some 0.1sec
  but at least now it's consistent for both OSS & SDL audio renderers
* fixed some problems with pinnacle video clips and dwStart in video stream
* fixed another problem with configure and Qt detection - now
  --with-qt-dir is prefered to QTDIR

2002/05/02
* fixed some threading problems - so it should be relatively safe to
  resize picture even in RGB mode
* fixing some names for postprocessing - now it's everywhere lowercase
* support for Qt3.0 font selection by Tomas Konir <moje@molly.vabo.cz>

2002/05/01
* again modified SDL audio renderer - (OSS is now default is SDL
  probably could never give predictable results) - but as for
  now it looks quite good
* restored some older smoother time modification in video thread -
  so the smooth video is back
* started to modify avirecompress to support some more options
  like YV12 or two pass encoding - for now avirecompress is a little
  bit broken (I a guess it's more then just a little ;))

2002/04/29
* fixed few newly discoverd issues with configure add added
  support for  --with-xvid-prefix
* spent some time on adding options for XviD & Divx4 plugins
  - yet XviD is not correct so fat
  - feature added to divx4 are most probably only available to Pro version
    which is not yet accessible for linux (if ever will be...)
* avirecompress now also compiles with Qt2.0
  (though the GUI looks quite strange - if anyone know how to
  removed those huge empty spaces - let me know)
* avicap has few GUI fixes so it's fully resizable - also graph bars
  now will show something nice
* checked and fixed compilalation for g++-3.1
* fixed some annoying bugs in audiorenederes which were waiting too much
  with the lowquality audio streams (problems with radio listening)
* also stream reader has some minor problems with threaded reading
  - fixed, but the fix looks a bit wierd - FIXME better

2002/04/26
* prepared new relase - fixing some remaining configuration issues
  I hope this time it will be finaly good release

2002/04/23
* fixing some C++ exception compilation problems - avoid usage of
  function throw(FatalError)  even when you are sure there will be
  no other exception generated by this function - produce bad code
  also I'd like to note here help of my friend and his idea
  to check -fsjlj-exceptions  g++ option
* fixed a/v sync a bit better - now it works so perfect I'm actually
  quite impressed myself :)
* few more cleanups in configure

2002/04/21
* using liba52
* some minor bugs resolved

2002/04/20
* still fixing some macros in configure and using some standard names
  like HAVE_LIBSDL
* checking  AC3 passthrough usability and fixing few issues with OSS
  render (we can't reset device - it will stop ac3 audio playback
  and there are few other most probably sblive emu driver faults)
* fixing few memory leaks in the library

2002/04/16
* fixing fixing fixing and again fixing - will this ever and ???
  anyway now the debian build produces correct package for potato
  system
* fixed some reported problem (i.e. avirec,  in some
  Makefile some files were missing - annoying if you have used CVS
  snapshot

2002/04/14
* fixed AC3 decompressor initialization
* large cleanup of configure.in & acinclude.m4
  now Qt should be checked more precisely
* fixing few minor bugs in avirecompressor
* hopefully correctly restored a/v sync calculation

2002/04/11
* cleaning configration process - e.g. now should again work
  compilation without X  (--without-x)
  so programs which do not require Xfree might save addition
  of xfree libraries
* running perl am_edit script only on specific Makefile.in files
* fixing few bugs with images conversion
* removed stupid BitmapInfo pointer - useless mem allocation
* rename CVS to avifile - (both names are however still valid
  sp user still could use avifile-0.6)

2002/04/09
* a lot of minor change to be compatible with SDL 1.0.0
  of course there is no Xv rendering but it works
* fixing couple of wrong overloaded methods
* some modification to be Qt2.0 compatible - but it's not that
  easy - but player is already compilable with it
  though without configuration dialog

2002/04/07
* support for .srt subtitles which doesn't have free empty lines
* fixed aviplay's config for subtitle async time
* fixed coredump for AC3 passthrough (which is not yet checked if it works)
* added support XV Atoms settings (hw contrast, brightness,...)
* cleaned library and plugins code so it compiles without backward
  compatible defines - samples & player still needs it.
* fixed memleak in some audio renderer extract path
* fixed some bugs in a complicated audio decoding path
* removed static variables from SDL video renderer

2002/04/04
* fixing some remaing reported problems
* added qring template class so we could use it intead of slightly inefficient
  vector classes for various buffers
* implemented 'show previous frame' with backspace - slow by might be usable

2002/03/30
* another major cleanup and fixup of reading classes - it looks like now
  all my asf & wmv files are precisely played without any problems
  (especialy vanderer.wmv clip was hard to fix)
* add few more magical tricks to properly play even files with
  seriously damaged audio headers (like famous CoyteUgly.ogg)
* few more GUI updates

2002/03/26
* major GUI updates - finaly first shared Qt object
* fixing some gcc3.0 compilation bugs
* a lot of minor tweaks and fixes in other places
  (e.g. eliminated  iv32 encoder - causes memory trashing)

2002/03/23
* fixed detection of stream EOF - we were ignoring last frame in avi stream
* fixed some stupid bug instroduced in last commit with avm_stl.h

2002/03/17
* make some fixes to prevent stack overwrite with -fstack-check
* discovering some GCC problems with  throw handling - we shouldn't
  probably use it at all as this seems to be horrible broken in
  all known to me GCC compilers - as soon as optimalization is turned on
  the weird thing begin to happen - with -fno-defer-pop and !not! using
  -march=i686 mostly solve this problem however the problem seems to
  be serious
* improving ldt_setup - adapting xine's method - but we are currently
  unable to use it as currently two different threads might want
  to decompress video frames

2002/02/29
* a lot of minor fixes in the video buffering rewrote - now it's
  finaly works as expected - was hard work...
* autoquality now works also without buffering - of course it's not
  as good as with buffers but it works.
* playing some more with ffmpeg - expect some major changes in this
  area.

2002/01/21
* a lot of fixes in the field of asf parsing - code starts to look a bit
  more readable - but still it's far a way from the understandibility...
* few more tweaks to handle better some timestamps

2002/01/10
* well a lot of changes in the progress
* currently the avifile is slightly broken - library is evolving itself a bit
* some major changes for now:
  - everything is being moved into avm:: namespace
  - also any C declaration should be prefixed with avm_
  - buffering has been removed from video decoders - but this introduced
    some new problems which are not so easy to solve
  - currently buffering is being made diferenly video queue was moved into
    VideoStream parser (and might be controlable from outside - so not
    only aviplay could use direct rendering mechanism - but the API
    is not yet stable)
* feature of this month - ASF streaming support has been improved a lot
  (actually it mostly works)
* for now I'm not sure if more bugs have been fixed or introduced as
  a lot of classes have been modified

2001/12/19
* more fixed over the whole source code
* now the segmentation should work again and should be possible to
  do some buffering and splitting at keyframes
* we are now playing on PPC as well - fixing avi playing was easy,
  asf required some more modication
* avicap supports Xawtv settings - usable via menu or with hotkey

2001/12/07
* some more cleanups in win32.c code

2001/12/04
* various fixes for dropping and autoquality - again - all I could say -
  if user will not complain I'll not most probably notice

2001/12/02
* spent many many hours on locating and finaly fixing the remaining problem
  with acelp codec (the thing which almost noone is probably using anyway :)
  But after all it FINALY works.
  Also AVID works for decoding.
* started rewrite of avifile main classes - yeah I know programs who
  are using avifile library likes these changes :) - but the good thing
  so far is - you do not need to modify single line of you code - as
  I'm providing backward compatible defines  structures - just binary
  compatibility seems to be rather a sci-fi so far :) but trust me the change
  is necessary to properly support all the setting we need to support
  - yet you can't see this code in CVS

2001/11/29
* fixed couple problems introduced with Makefile cleanup
* fixed stupid bug in subtitles creation - currios why almost nobody
  noticed this problem (big thanks goes to Lukas)

2001/11/27
* heavy cleanup of Makefile.am rules
* DivX4 DirectShow should work again
* fixed some compilation issues for old egcc

2001/11/25
* more fixes to newly converted DirectShow code in plain C
* acel.net codec loads in both - .ax & .acm form, but none of them seems
  to be operating normaly
* fixed few remaining problems with Mp3 header detection (bug in tables)

2001/11/18
* made avicap look more like real application - moving, resizing,...
* some fixes for YUV colorspaces in win32 dll encoding
* fixed YV12 encoding with DivX4 plugins (avicap showed quite a few bugs
  at this field - but I do not have really that much time to fix
  everything instantly - especialy when I do not know about the problem!)

2001/11/15
* fixed many minor bugs across the code (curious why nobody complained -
  maybe I'm the only one who is still using this :)
* fixed some bug with direct data reading from stream
* updated avicap
* ReadDirect has now another parameter - to get first frame flag

2001/11/13
* fixed few bugs in win32 code - VP31 shouldn't corrupt memory
  (was dealocating some Heap twice)
* few quick fixes in avicap so it will work
* updated fillplugins.h for win32 - enabled MWV1 ZLib Mszh for compression
  (thought these old codecs are quite useless anyway :)
  disabled Morgan jpeg & DivX for encoding to prevent mysterious segfaults
  these codecs are causing

2001/11/11
* fixed some more details in Mp3 detection  (reading more samples)
* ASF will continue with index reconstraction when some bad packets are found
* implementation for AUDIO_CHANNEL
* saving some bits of memory

2001/11/08
* Dirk Mueller joined our team and will do some work on GUI interface
* also some outstanding problem with Qt3.0 popup menu problem was fixed
  (with Trolltech support)

2001/11/04
* slightly updated API - but backward compatible function remains in headers
  I'll try to do any future API changes get handled this way as API
  seems to be getting into its stable phase...
* OSS sound audio render now also supports time tracking of video stream
  and is actually more precise then SDL audio renderer - I've no
  idea how to get precise time of currently played buffer

2001/11/02
* few more compatibility/compilation fixes for older systems
* using  GetSrcSize more precisely to get better timing for VBR audio streams
* garbage coolection reenable for Global mallocs with mouch simplier
  method and without any slowdown

2001/10/31
* swaped function names for be/le calls
* disable garbage collection for Global mallocs in libwin32 -
  VP31 allocates 11000 memory chunks - and after this it gets free
  we need probably a tree to store memory referencies as linked list
  isn't a good choice for this

2001/10/30
* removed check for movie chunk - so another set of broken files should
  be playable
* slightly modified routine for mp3 stream detection - will not fail
  if mp3 header could not be found and will use stream header

2001/10/28
* fixing memory leaks in libwin32 (hard task to catch them all...)
* changing some internals in write/read avi
  (maily to be less big-endian dependent)
* avm::vector will behave more like std::vector  (operator=, copy constructor)
* seeking audio stream more closely to video track - useful when avi stream
  has very large chunks with audio (e.g. 256KB)

2001/10/23
* added several functions into encoder API - now it's possible to create audio/video
  encoder objects and AVI streams using CodecInfo as a reference.
* fixed some bugs in avirecompress

2001/10/21
* added high quality MPEG audio decoder MAD
* fixed ugly bug in AVI stream reading causing some problems with
  certain MPEG streams
* added keyboard control for Saturation/Brightness,Hue,Constras
  compatible with Xawtv (F1/F2, F5/F6, F7/F8, F9/F10)
  (some people believes sliders s*s, but they are not reporting
  this problem :) - of course it was 10 minute work to add this :)-

2001/10/20
* some updates in configure.in and installing plugins without version-info

2001/10/15
* fixed some outstanding bugs - like wrong Eof detection for broken streams,
  or missing initialization of Async or Volume properties.
* moved Locker to common so other programs might use just
  aviread, common subdirs if they do not need player or writer part

2001/10/14
* quite a few changes in libwin32 driver
* fixed bug which prevented setting non direct show driver
* added few more options to couple codecs

2001/10/10
* fixed keyframe for recompress and placed video stream
  as the first one in avirecompress

2001/10/08
* fixed some ugly bugs probably introduces by me long time ago in win32
  registry so now they are working in the way one would expect
* fixed DivX4.0 setting so they are also correctly stored in registry

2001/10/08
* Eugene made DivX4 Win32 codec quite usable
* change a little behaviour in threads - now it waits in aviplayth
  decoder instead of videodecoder directly when buffers are full
* some cleanup of libwin32 so mplayer team could be a little bit more happy :)
* more and more fixes in stl->avm conversion

2001/10/03
* some small steps towards multiplatform compilation
* quite big automake cleanup
* another set of header cleanups

2001/10/02
* fixed missing mbox initialization
* CodefInfo & AttributeInfo is now derived from BaseInfo
  - use methods  GetName()  GetAbout()  instead of accessing private members
* some improvements in win32 loader  - handles  divx.dll for decoding/encoding

2001/09/30
* type cleanup - using  uint_t in most places - eliminated Unsigned, size_t
* fixed couple crashes during deinitialization of aviplay
* fixed endless loop in asf seeking
* added our own very simple and basic implementation for two used STL
  classes - vector & string - compiles much faster and especialy
  debugging object files are much smaller

2001/09/28
* fixed some serious bugs in dropping algorithm
* cleaned some includes and classes to minimalize usage of bloated STL
  this should speedup compilation

2001/09/26
* VfwEx for vp31vfw.dll works now - based on the work of mplayer team

2001/09/24
* update in whole a-v synchronization for both asf and avi streams

2001/09/23
* cleaned some new warnings
* slightly reworked event filter so its part of class
* fixed resizing - takes into account subtitles size
* another bug - using dwStart for index

2001/09/20
* few minor (memory eating) bugs introduced with last update has been fixed
* updated ffmpeg sources
* patch from Jurgen Keil amongs other thing fixes wrong TSC detection in win32

2001/09/16
* fixed stupid bug in function overload of AviReadStreamA::GetTime()

2001/09/15
* fixed crash with avicap - so it should work
  mjpeg & huffyuv are only used for decoding
* fixed deadlock in stream read for some very broken avi file
* fixed missing init call in Ogg/Vorbis pluggin
* fixed memcpy for video image in ffmpeg plugin
* repaired threading - now works much more reliable and doesn't use
  EVENTTHREAD from SDL which seems to cause busy loop on some systems
* fixed DIVX video stream index reconstruction
* removed avifmt.h - now its private header file
  use StreamInfo when you need info about stream

2001/09/08
* Workaround for playback of AVI files with nonzero dwSampleSize in video stream header
* Rearranged subtitle suffixes test order

2001/09/04
* vorbis plugin operates - without seeking
  3 magical numbers discovered in mplayer source
  big thanks and hello to Felix who reads our Changelog
  for his work on ogg/vorbis decoding
* autodetection of ogg/vorbis libraries

2001/09/02
* more work on libmmxnow
* failed to build working vorbis decoder plugin - the test files seems
  to have unlogical content - so unless I'll find some better descrition
  we have to live without this plugin for now
* cleanup in the source code

2001/09/01
* smarter FileStream class which should allow faster rescaning of damaged files
* adding few more const pointers

2001/08/31
* cleaning some problems reported on the list - autogen.sh
  recompilaction problems
* solved stupid bug in CPU consuming SDL thread - used wrong return value

2001/08/29
* spend another day with video scheduler - now it has just three lines
  (why have I discovered this earlier???)
  should be giving very good results in X11 and Xv accelerated mode
* discovered potencial slowdown code in SDL library
  - SDL_Delay(1) in src/events/SDL_events.c around the line 120
  should be rather SDL_Delay(100)  otherwice this loop eats CPU a lot
  - not a problem when there are two processors - but noticable
  when just one has to be running (that's why I've not noticed this problem)
  SOLUTION for now - replace Delay and recompile - for now I've no idea
  what we could be doing wrong that we hit this problem - maybe it's
  real bug in SDL ??? (solved)

2001/08/26
* initial work on mmxnow library
* improve AviPlayer initilization
* added loading support for reading external audio channel from second file

2001/08/25
* minor tuning of scheduler - checking larger delay
* DVSD support (fallbacks to dvsd)
* removed QMARK, DMARK, DropFrame, shortened buffers for precaching
* video scheduling again improved - noticable with huge images rendered
  with x11 renderer without any hardware acceleration
* ported big part of pthread calls to use our internal Mutex/Cond/Thread
  implementation (Locker.h) - adaptation to SDL locks should be possible
  just with replacement of Locker.cpp later
* cleanup of thread - more safety for Free/NetBSD systems
* Max Autoquality - for DS_VideoDecoder & DivX

2001/08/24
* allowed usage of SW YUV overlay emulation - very useful for
  ffmpeg which supports only YV12 surface
* many fixes in renderer part - updating fonts in runtine and other
  nice features should basicaly work

2001/08/21
* yet another minor change in scheduler - but "there is something about xine"
  which tells me we can still be better...

2001/08/20
* fixed another stupid cut&paste bug - used video listbox instead of audio
* fixed couple other problems in the run-time configuration update

2001/08/19
* fixed information messages - for kbps using 1000 instead of 1024 as with KB
* added AC3 passthrough pluggin which really plays Dolby Digital!
  (-> I do not have any other player except play-ac3 which plays ac3 stream)
  (ok I know - there is not many DivX with AC3 and we do not play vob
  but anyway - it's nice :)
* fixed few problems with AudioQueue to accept ac3 passthrough stream

2001/08/17
* continual cleanup of Win32 subsystem - to be more portable - goal
  is to allow mplayer team to use exact same copy of unmodified source.
* some updates in headers - using "name.h"  instead of <name.h> for our
  headers - its better for dependency generators

2001/08/13
* Huge update in AviPlayer class - moving towards much easier runtime
  configuration - everything should be fully modifiable in runtime
  (For now you could at least switch renderer (x11 & xv) but
   note the whole replacement is usually without soundskip!)
* fixed ASF parsing (Ann Lee - Two Times.asf)
* skip to next key frame is not performed if the last one passed
* added ordering of decoders - for now its still not that easy to
  select codec - but you could do it.
* player shows the time of seek bar, as obviously user wants to know
  to which time he is seeking
* fixed couple gcc3.0 things

2001/08/08
* large set of various minor improvements in configure and autogen.sh
* much better library versioning
* ffmpeg CVS update
* renamed few programs
    qtrecompress -> avirecompress
    qtvidcap -> avicap
    benchmark -> avibench

2001/08/04
* decoding ALaw & uLaw audio tracks
* using AC3 decoding from FFMPEG
  (seems to there are few modified ac3 libraries available - mplayer seem to
  be using different version - probably heavily optimized - but as it doesn't take
  to much CPU we stay with the current version for a moment - API seems to be differnet
* autoquality implemeneted into OpenDivX (or should I say ClosedDivX :)
  anyway this code is about 25% faster and it works with autoquality
* during cleaning bugs and improving functionality of benchmark fixed
  some bug in detection of Eof in Avi stream
* benchmark will now give also similar number as you could get from benchmarking
  mplayer (just to be sure we are still faster :) for now with -direct -yuv -
  but buffered mode seems to be slower - maybe there is something on the
  fastmemcpy...
* renderer disables mouse after 1sec of inactivity in aviplayer window
2001/08/04
* fixed problem with 0 frame numbering
  actual information about the current frame are available after ReadFrame
  (e.g. Time, Position,...)
* huge set of improvements in qtrecompress - now it really works
  (with few filters which are not available in VirtualDub :))

2001/08/03
* subtitle code update (support for SAMI - .smi)
* cleanup of various makefiles (suggest by some users)
* Debian package slightly modified

2001/07/22
* TrueType Font Rendering (using Xft extension - with the help of Lukas Hejtmanek)
* smarter DirectRendering mode - should work all the time with necessary conversions

2001/07/21
* very extensive cleanup of conversion modes of images
* cleaned some hacks in Win32 VideoDecoder class
* added some hack for correct playing of several not very used codecs
  like huffyuv, asv1, asv2, vcr2
* large speedup of C-version routines for conversion  RGB 24b->16b

2001/07/18
* fixed bug in Subviewer reader
* fixed two memory leaks discovered by mprotector
* added support for few more codecs

2001/07/17
* lots of code cleanup
* started to cleanup some types - transformation to uint32...
* some fixies in DirectShow code
* fixed several MAJOR bugs in qtrecompressor - now it even works - though
  it's still rather a toy application and I would not advice to use it for
  any serious thing yet
* ffmpeg 0.4.4
* autoconf2.50 compatible - anyone dissagree ???

2001/07/14
* another speedup of resumpling code - should be now very efficient
* -ljpeg for avimake

2001/07/11
* added libmp3lamebin plugin which as able to load libmp3lame at runtime

2001/07/10
* 4 times faster resampling - using just interger arithmetic
* scanning WIN32_PATH, /usr/lib/win32, /usr/local/lib/win32 paths for dll

2001/07/09
* able to use ffmpeg library - version 0.4.3 is now in avifile CVS
  - original CVS seems to be now the tree of the mplayer.
  for now we could use it to play OpenDivX - it could also play DivX :-)
* minor redesing of videodecoder API - now we have Start/StopInternal
* cleaned mjpeg_plugin
* started to clean DirectShow directory to make it C-compilable
  (so it could be used by mplayer and others...)
* also made quite a few cleanups in other places
* fixed WIN32_PATH support
* added AVIPLUGIN_PATH shell variable
* fixed AVIPLAY_MUTE_VIDEO, AVIPLAY_MUTE_AUDIO
* few fixes for debian

2001/06/28
* another change in constants in scheduler
* interface change! - GetHeader(void* header, size_t n)

2001/06/26
* Locker.h and VideoDPMS.h are now public
* fixed few problems in frame elimination in video decoder class

2001/06/23
* complete rewrite of players' thread - is it now FreeBSD safe ??
  - also we are no longer using avi_usleep for audio synchronization and
  instead we use timed condition which has adwantage that we have
  immediate hangup when thread is sleeping
* added NextFrame aviplay method - usable with 'Return' key in aviplayer
* implemented initial 'hacked' support for better priority handling
  - if you set uid.gid to root.root together with 'suid' bit,
  that video thread will use -10 priority for better timing - however
  BIG WARNING is here - you are using closed-source windows binary dll
  codecs - during their execution aviplayer is using user uid & gid
  - however you never know what could happen!
* for this reason it looks like the best is to lower the priority if
  audio & video decoding threads so video thread gets its needed CPU when
  necessery.

2001/06/21
* complex GUI update for configuration of aviplayer
  (some of buttons now even works in runtime so you don't have to restart
  player - ok I know - still not perfect...)
* resampling is now more usable as it could do far more things then
  just pure 44kHz resampling - so why not making it fully usable - its even
  nice feature
* version-info - library has now number 0.0.6  (level 0  version 0.6)
* another streaming bug fixed - so we play more asf stream over the net

2001/06/20
* fixed & tuned resampling to remove clics for unsigned char audio stream
  (but some check for the overflow would help us too)
* extended stream info added (check movie property)

2001/06/18
* some deadlocks in audio renderer - SDL_LockAudio now works somehow better
  but it is still not usable
* no longer processing keyboard events which belongs to other applications
* fixed resampling - that was really stupid bug and not that easy to fix
  but the result is very good

2001/06/18
* minor updates in network asf - it just works - but it's still crashing a lot
* staying compatible with qt2.X
* added hack for NVidia cards - autodetected by looking for NVIDIA-GLX
  extension - could be forced on by setting
  export AVIPLAY_NVIDIA_ENABLE=1
  or off with this shell command executed before aviplayer gets started
  export AVIPLAY_NVIDIA_DISABLE=1

2001/06/16
* a lot of fixes in asf parsing code - finally we are able to detect end of
  the file properly
* redesigned and simplified event handling in aviplayer
* a-v sync is now 100% better than it ever was
* maximize return to its previous size when switching off fullscreen
* hopefully fixed problem with mpg sound which could occasionaly get broken
* GUI updates
* added keys '[', ']' to modify a-v sync - (adds, subs 0.1 sec)
* UNIQUE frame-dropping technique - now even very slow computers could
  be used to view movies in audio-video sync !!!!

2001/06/12
* more keyboard updates
* added methods for setting getting video renderers in aviplay class
  (set is however unimplemented so far)
* reading video modes and making them available in maximize modes

2001/06/11
* improved player keyboard handling - seeking is better & faster again
* GetFrame is using Lock instead of usleep - faster reaction

2001/06/08
* redesigned whole ToggleFullscreen & Resize system - now it should work
  reliable, fast and without strange locking problems (at least I hope so)
  Pressing 'm' key is now the best thing you could do to view the move
* added support for SubRip subtitles
* l3codeca.acm - windows mp3 dll library seems to be working now!
* quick resizing with keys: 1 (0.5x), 2 (1x), 3 (2x)
* fixes in audio synchronization
* fixed YV12 drawing (swaped 2nd & 3rd plane)
* benchmark supports YV12

2001/06/05
* hardly played with synchronization
  we can now resize window  without stopping playing!!!
  (try this with other players :)

2001/05/30
* fixed couple deadlocks in AudioRenderer
* fixed Uncompressed video decoder
* added autorepeat for SDL

2001/05/28
* slowly adding support for direct rendering
* again general rewrite of scheduler - simplier and more efficient
* of course the complex part did not dissappeared - its now
  in audio renderer - which is being constantly modified
  so OSS & Sun are currently not supported until they will be fixed
  to match complexity of SdlAudioRenderer

2001/05/19
* as some more issues have been resolved in the audio time calculation
  we could now have much more simple and precise video image scheduling
  A-V is in in milisecond range - just check (export AVIPLAY_DEBUG=1)
* reconstructing even seriously broken .avi files
  you could really split two .avi files and then join them in any order
  - you just need the correct initial header
* few changes in qtrecompress GUI
* bugfix: some codecs needs previous image to be stored in the new decoded image
* supporting more flags for benchmark utility:
  -seek, -frame, -length

2001/05/15
* played a bit with DPMS code - now it should be compilable even on older systems
* tuned Dropping algorithm

2001/05/13
* removed memorymut - replaced with two utility functions - memory_un/lock()
* aviplay.h: Set/GetSubAsync -> Set/GetSubtitlesAsync
  InitSubtitles is now public function (well not full usable at this
  moment)

2001/05/12
* New VIDEO IMAGE scheduler - its giving excelent result to me
  - however my machine is quite powerful SMP computer so this needs
  to be test with other types of machine (btw - mplayer has made lately
  some progress in this area too - and we have to be better :))
* reconstruction of index on broken DivX movies - now checks for KeyFrames
  (inspired by mplayer code)
* reading from avistream is now more endinadness independent - but this
  probaly has to be checked in the real small endian machine.

2001/05/08
* significant speed for large movies - memory is now
  protected when doing large memory transfers so we are
  not loosing the speed too much ion this case - was hard to
  figure out and current solution is not very nice - its rather a hach
* changed  drawFunc - they are now replaced with list of video renderes
  yet function to add them on the fly are missing for now - will
  be resolved later - expect some interface changes in this area

2001/05/06
* timing changed more - so more ASF files are played correctly
  if anyone has something we are playing completely wrong - let me know
* VBUFSIZE is now in the class which implements IVideoDecoder and
  is quite easily changable - maybe configurable option in future...

2001/05/05
* !!IMPORTANT!! general update of several public interfaces
  (changes are not that big - but probably require simple updates,
  I wanted to make these changes before library get used by more projects)
  - unification of various method names doing same thing
  - SeekTime replaces Seek(double) - it better visible what's going on
  - GetEndPos -> GetLength
  - GetEndTime -> GetLenghtTime
  - LengthTime -> GetLenghtTime
  - Length -> GetLength
  - FormatSize -> GetFormatSize
  - FourCC -> GetFourCC
  - Prev/Next/NearestKeyFrame -> Get*
  - ToNext/PrevKetFrame -> SeekToNext/PrevKeyFrame
  - SetRealtime -> SetDecodingMode
  - config_entry -> ConfigEntry
  - GetDrop, GetQuality -> GetAvgDrop, GetAvgQuality
* new code for timing ASF files
* added QualityAuto & PreserveAspect in RegAccess
* many changes across the whole source base because of this
* implemented Preserve Aspect Ratio
* implemented CPU Quality checkbox (still missing setting Quality after Off)
* fixed bug with killHandler destruction - caused crashes with broken videostreams
* found & fixed deadlock in Mpeg layer3 decoding
  (now just writes: MP3 Stream reinitialized!  and reinitialize decoder)
* we are again playing Video free avi/wma/asf streams.
* fixed deadlock case in AviMediaReadStream::find

2001/05/04
* fixed playing of asf files with variable frame rate - e.g.
  when frame should stay on the screen for longer time
  current solution allows immediate seeking
* more changes to videodecoder interface class
  few things have been made private and I suppose more change will
  be made within this class - if you are building your own decode
  watch closely these updates.
* fixed some bugs when Videostream is not present

2001/05/01
* code cleanup
* now progress bar shows correct info for direct show DivX
* clenaup of members of videodecoder class
* some updates for Spark i386 architecture
* VideoDPMS is now separate class

2001/04/30
* fixed and rewrote destruction of aviplayer class (now its more clean)
* adding several methods to win32.c so huffyuv codecs almost works
* rewrote & fixed reading .SRT subtitles (takes less space)
  also this will be moved to separate class file - also
  the support for SMI subtitles will be added soon
* add few more keystrokes to aviplayer to be compatible with movie window
* fixed and repaired wrong image time reading - we were reading time
  information for the next image and also it was causing unpleasent
  effect on the image redrawing when mouse enters the window - its
  the only reasonable way to simulate expose event for this moment - now
  its almost unnoticable.
* support for DivX VKI - DIV5, DIV6 - user has to install these libraries:
  divxcvki.ax & divxcvki.dll
* implemented several new functions in win32 to make huffyuv work better
  so far RGB variant is upside-down in player and corretly in qtrecompress
  YUV variant looks OK in player and is upside-down in qtrecompress
* variuous fixes in qtrecompress - but for this moment is still pretty
  much broken piece so I would still advice to use VirtualDub.
* many other minor bugfixes - like missing -O2 flag in configure.in,
* fixed uggly bug in videodecoder - we have to use mutex in this case
* we should be now nearly as fast as mplayer I believe

2001/04/27
* fixed compilation some inline for RedHat broken g++ compiler
* reversed wrong idea for using DIV5 & DIV6

2001/04/26
* fixed another problem with audio - it looks like its not the right thing
  to divide rate by dwSampleSize - sometimes there are weird values
  anyway for now it works - better fix will come later
* modified slightly renderer - remember data only in mutexed part -
  otherwice it might lead to possible race
* we are playing huffyuv - for now upside-done in player - but
  qtrecompress show normal image - this will be fixed
* fixed few problems with ACEL incorect initialization - it still doesn't
  work but at least its not crashing.

2001/04/25
* fixed bug in audio playing - missing division by dwSampleSize
* fixed bug with destroying AviPlayer2 object - setting m_bQuit there
* Cursor keys Up/Down means 1m forward backward in the movie
  (similar semantic to mplayer - to not confuse people)
* added few fourCC for DivX VKI we will see if this helps
* played a bit with renderer so it should refresh images better

2001/04/22
* fixed bug introduced by me for software scaling
* added few more calls to PlayerWidget - refresh, maximize
* also extended renderer class for refresh call - we are now
  finaly able to refresh/resize image in pause mode too
* slightly modified maximize - it goes to fullscreen mode automagicaly
  yet it might look slightly weird when the window has to be resized first
  as it first switch to fullscreen for the current size,
  that it resizes to the new size and finaly switches to this
  new screen mode - weird I know, but quite stable for X11
* news keys - 'f' - fullscreen, 'm' - maximize, 'space' - pause
* left mouse click - pause

2001/04/20
* changed video decoder interface to separate caching code from
  actual decoding. Now nearly all caching code is situated in
  lib/common/impl_video.cpp ( useful for writing new video decoder
  plugins, also more logical ).
* fixed a bug in asf parser code which prevented local .asf files
  from playing.
* removed arts plugin & software motion jpeg decoder from distribution
  ( they are unusable anyway ). Fixed a few small linking problems.

2001/04/16
* complete rewrite of Cache.cpp - now should be quite efficient
  (should be almost zero wasted time now)
* fixed couple of fast scrolling problems - now should no longer
  scroller switch frames by itself - actually I've tried hard
  to get this to the perfection - does anyone notice any problems
  with aviplayer scroller ?? please let me know
  (similar scrolling will be backported to recompressor later)
* fixed most of problems when doing pause - audio should now continue
  at the point it has stopped
* fixed detection of audio stream - also buffered time is now included
  into calculation so the audio is not being stopped several seconds
  before the actual end of video
* made couple changes to be more gcc3.0 compatible - however
  this compiler seems to be seriously broken these days and
  needs way to much memory to compile classes with member values
  which are classes again (pointers are OK)
  also for some weird reason std::string as a member value is also
  some kind of brake barrier for this compiler

2001/04/07
* another set of gcc3.0 compatibility patches (by Dirk Mueller)
* started to support /dev/misc/mga_vid (not yet finished)

2001/04/07
* continued with cleaning of audio classes
* added few more locks into video renderer
* fixed problem with opening menu in fullscreen window
* using smaller amount of precached images (15)
  (rewritten some part of videodecoders)
* popup menu for midle mouse button and about menu is created only once
* fixed bug in ReadString - def_string has not been copied
* fixed couple bugs in qtrecompres - should not by cycling and should
  be showing some images at least
* played a bit with qtvidcap - modified some parts of the gui to be
  fully resizable

2001/03/31
* heavy cleaning in many files - creating a lot of new files during this process
* fixed problems which has prevented compilation with optimized of Win32 loader
* fixed loop bug in qtrecompress
* mpeg decoder has to be compiled with optimalization because of inlines!
* started to add more types - like fourcc_t
* modified IVideoDecoder - m_bh is now just pointer to memory which
  is copy if format - this way we support longer BITMAPINFOHEADER structures
  yet few problems still remains
* some modification to configure.in
* possibly fixed problem with asynchronous sound (not so sure for now however)
  but this problem problem has to be checked more deeply
  for now I've just checked SDL Audio renderer
* changes some mimetype for artsc (to fix debian bugreport)

2001/03/26
* Quality progress bar should give some meaningful status for DivX movies
* another change in time scheduler
* fixed couple destructors so we are getting less coredumps on program exit
* tried to add huffyuv codec - still doesn't work
* fixed few problems with configure.in - should be able to build without SDL
* few more updates for gcc3.0 compatibility

2001/03/21
* few changes to make compilation of avifile on RedHat with broken gcc
  more comfortable (so it doesn't take hours to compile one .cpp file)

2001/03/19
* quality setting from command line stays across movie change
* cleanup of huge amount of gcc -pendantic warnings (mainly in lib)
* slightly changed behavior of slider - when paused you should see the image
  with slider movement
* added working Xv render - but it has few reason for segfaults so
  it currently available only by code editing
* played heavily with the solution for image flickering
  nice solution seems to be my new modified version of mga_vid
  device taken from mplayer - but we use only code for interrupts
  and we rather use this device as interrupt generator - which is clean
  and its highly possible that this will hit mainstream kernel sometimes
  in the future
  currently mga_vid driver is provided with the avifile package - user
  has to recompile device itself
* few more fixes in the behaviour of GUI (switching between image size)
* fixed some problems with subtitles (but they should be reworked later)
* fixed and added some noticing messages were some problems with resize appears
* unified volume_func (using quadratic steps for now)
* applied patch for SUN audio on solaris by Juergen Keil <jk@tools.de>

2001/03/12
* started to use unsigned long in most seek commands (4GB compatibility)
  this is a big change in the interface and probably few bugs
  are still left in the code
  also writing code was not yet modified!
* cleaned some interface header files
* added volume slider and mute button
* added quality progres bar (its not yet fully operational -
  support for auto quality selection is not finished)
* YV12 doen's work - FIXME
* SDL double buffer doesn't work - FIXME
