Media Player Classic has been released.

##### 2008-07-28 (SVN revision 72) #####

* MPEG Audio Decoder: Updated liba52
* MPEG Audio Decoder: Updated libdts
* VSFilter: Added RealText support
* VSFilter: Fix rare seeking issue with VobSubs
* VSFilter: Fix potential jitter issues with \pos overrides in VSFilter.
* VSFilter: Really fix two subtitle rasterisation bugs: Go back to old pixmix/pixmix2 architecture originally used in Subtitler and early versions of VSFilter, implement an SSE2 version of pixmix2 and ensure (widened-region minus fill) math doesn't underflow. Completely fixes "\be1 stray dots" and "vector \clip kills alpha" bugs.
Also add several comments explaining the rasterisation code.
* VSFilter: Add support for variable strength and animated \be, and implement gaussian \blur as an alternative. (\blur also does edge blur like \be but in a nicer way.)
* VSFilter: Add new override tags \xbord \ybord \xshad \yshad to control border and shadow size separately in X and Y directions.
* VSFilter: Add "inverse clip" tag \iclip to specify what to hide rather than what to show.
* VSFilter: Partial workaround for problem where border colour shows through fill colour during \fad and \fade fades. This workaround potentially causes small seams to be visible during the fade, unfortunately this is the price to pay for getting correct fades.

##### 2008-06-12 (SVN revision 55) #####

* MPC: Added revision number to About dialog.
* MPC: Updated libpng

##### 2008-04-14 (SVN revision 49) #####

* MPC: Added some key bindings.
* MPC: Added option to disable the automatic blocking of VSFilter when "Auto-load subtitles" is enabled and the internal subtitle filter is used. Disabling this block allows users to view two different subtitle languages at the same time (if they want to). The option is called "BlockVSFilter" and currently requires manual editing of the registry/ini, since it is not (yet) available in the GUI.

##### 2008-03-08 (SVN revision 44) #####

* MPC: Added subtitle delay function for the internal subtitle renderer. It can be controlled with the F1 (decrease delay) and F2 (increase delay) buttons. The default delay interval is 500ms, but can be changed in the options. Patch by MatMaul.
* MPC: Automatically block DirectVobSub filter (VSFilter) when the internal subtitle renderer will be used.
* MPC: (SubResync) Save to .srt subtitle fix concerning italics
* MPC: YUV mixing option is now hidden on Vista (because it does not work on Vista).
* MPC: Added CSS classes in WebInterface.
* MPC: Fixed buffer overrun in VobSub code.
* MPC: Show proper error message when trying to use the "Save Image" function together with Overlay Mixer renderer.

##### 2008-01-27 (SVN revision 36) #####

* FLV splitter: bugfix

##### 2008-01-20 (SVN revision 34) #####

* MPC: Solved a problem with the pixel shader resizer
* MPC: The internal FLV4 video decoder will now only be used in low merit mode.
* MPC: Fixed isdb url.
* FLV splitter: Fixed crash on some files.

##### 2008-01-04 (SVN revision 29) #####

* MPC: The INITIAL value of the setting "Auto-load subtitles" will now default to OFF when DirectVobSub is detected as installed and to ON when DirectVobSub is not found.
* MPC: Restored the subtitle database functionality and updated it with a working URL.
* MPC: Various small changes.

##### 2007-12-06 (SVN revision 26) #####

* FLV splitter: Recognize ADPCM audio.
* FLV splitter: Recognize Nellymoser audio.
* MPC: Tweaked priorities in DirectShow source filter enumeration. Behavior now better matches that of GraphEdit.
* MPC: Remember active shaders.
* MPC: Added two sharpen shaders.

##### 2007-10-15 (SVN revision 18) #####

* AVI splitter: Support .amv files.
* MPC: Default to VMR9 renderer on Vista.
* MPC: Fixed crash in "Save Thumbnails" function when the number of rows/columns is set to a value greater than 8 (the maximum allowed).
* MPC: Allow usage of a disabled internal source filter when no other suitable filter is available.
* Updated FAAD2 to version 2.6

##### 2007-09-18 (SVN revision 3) #####

* Bento4 0.9.3

Nice player, But I prefer VLC Media Player.
It supports more formats than Media Player Classic.
IE8(Pro), Microsoft Security Essentials
Main PC:
Secondary PC same as primary but with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate as the OS.
