It reads the following information: * General: title, author, director, album, track number, date, duration... * Video: codec, aspect, fps, bitrate... * Audio: codec, sample rate, channels, language, bitrate... * Text: language of subtitle * Chapters: number of chapters, list of chapters It supports the following containers/codecs: * Video: MKV, OGM, AVI, DivX, WMV, QuickTime, Real, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DVD (VOB) (Codecs: DivX, XviD, MSMPEG4, ASP, H.264, AVC...) * Audio: OGG, MP3, WAV, RA, AC3, DTS, AAC, M4A, AU, AIFF * Subtitles: SRT, SSA, ASS, SAMI

    2017-05-05 - - Update to version 0.7.95 * EBUCore: EBUCore 1.8 with acquisition metadata output. * Better support of growing files, especially when accessed by FTP * Matroska: better support of some broken files (high EBMLMaxSizeLength, padding before start of EBML) * EXR: showing Multipart and Deep flags * EXR: show image compression method * EBUCore: fixed display aspect ratio (was using rational) * EBUCore: fixed frame rate factor (was num/den instead of factor) * AVC: some streams with dynamic frame type were having a wrong frame rate * MPEG-4: some old AAC tracks were not correctly detected * Matroska: was sometimes displaying "Bit depth: Bit0" when bit depth is unknown * Nut: fix crash with some files * FFV1: PixelAspectRatio was an integer, switched to 3-digit rational * DTS: fix frame count * Dolby E: fix frame count * EBUCore: fix regression creating invalid XML files * AVC: some streams with dynamic frame type were having a wrong frame rate

    2017-04-30 - - call gzip -n to make build fully reproducible

    2017-03-30 - - Update to version 0.7.94 * VC-3: detection of embedded time code + VC-3: better support of stream with width 960 or 1440 * VC-3: support of version 3 (a.k.a. DNxHR), including profile and level for version 1/2 (a.k.a. DNxHD) * Matroska trace feature: reduction of its size * MXF trace feature: reduction of its size * M143, MXF with Acquisition Metadata: crash fixed * Several crash fixes 0.7.94 * Matroska: detection of native FFV1 CodecID ("V_FFV1") + AC-3/E-AC-3: detection of Atmos inside core streams * AC-3/E-AC-3: slight reorganization of metadata display for dual mono and surround * AC-3/E-AC-3: "complete main" and similar info moved to "Service kind" dedicated line * AC-3/E-AC-3: more precision about how is built a stream (e.g. "E-AC-3+Atmos / E-AC-3" or "TrueHD+Atmos / TrueHD / AC-3") * WTV: basic detection * MPEG-TS: Detection of Opus * URL: "URLEncode" option for saying if the input should be URL encoded or not (default is guess = no change except if it contains spaces) * MediaTrace: for bitstreams (not bytestreams), bit offset was wrong * HLS: duration was sometimes wrong, reading only the first TS file duration. Now full duration is displayed * MPEG-TS: if stream is encrypted or invalid, level was sometimes not the expected one for AVC (e.g. "BaseLine@3.0" instead of "Baseline@3") * Matroska: FFV1 stream width/height was not initialized when Matroska track header width/height is after CodecID * FFV1: fix potential crash with some buggy slice headers * Matroska: crash in case of big attachment and CRC32 present

    2017-03-04 - - Trim description, avoid rhetorical questions. - Drop export CFLAGS.. this is already done by %configure.
