Changes in this release (0.54):

- Added direct DVD support

- Added automatic detection of CD/DVD drive (no need to specify device
  name/unit anymore)

- Added support for the new 64bit DOS functions so that files >2GB are now
  handled correctly

- Implemented the I/O plugin system and moved the DVD/VideoCD support to
  an external plugin

- Screen Blanker is now not allowed to activate while playing

- Implemented AppWindow support so files can be dragged onto DvPlayer's window

- Now the previous filename is remembered in the file requester when opening

- Window is now opened on the frontmost screen (if it's public) instead of the
  Workbench screen so that if it's started from a different screen it will
  open there.

- Improved 6-Channel to Stereo audio conversion routines to avoid distortions
  which appeared with a few DVDs

- Fixed NOTRIPLEBUFFER option (was broken when subtitle support was added)

- Fixed sound distortions with interleaved AVI files

- Now ensures that only complete frames are sent to the video decoder for AVI
  files. This should fix the problems with partially downloaded AVI files.

- Fixed a bug in the subtitle code which caused memguard hits

- Fixed a serious bug in GUI loading (thanks to memguard)

- Fixed a nasty bug in the exit code which could cause random crashes

This is the demo version of DvPlayer. The demo has fullscreen mode removed, and
a 7 minute timeout.

DvPlayer is an ongoing project to bring the ultimate multimedia experience to
the Amiga computer. It is a unique and Amiga-only multimedia player, developed
by Amiga enthusiasts, for Amiga enthusiasts!

This version of DvPlayer requires AmigaOS 4.0 and supports the following video

   - MPEG-1/2 video streams
   - MPEG-1/2 system streams
   - VideoCD and SVCD
   - DVD Video
   - AVI files

DvPlayer supports many audio and video codecs via avcodec.library, including
MPEG Video 1/2, DiVX, XVID, MJPG, Cinepak, Indeo Video, PCM, MPEG Audio
(Layer1-3) and more.

To achieve the fastest possible video playback, DvPlayer uses fast
direct-rendering algorithms for every possible HiColor and TrueColor display
mode. There are also separate rendering routines for half scale and also for
movies with 16:9 aspect ratio so that they are correctly displayed on a 1:1
aspect monitor without being stretched.

Support for using the video overlay is also included. Overlay is currently only
supported by the Voodoo drivers; for Radeon owners it will be available in
future releases of the Radeon graphics driver.

DvPlayer features an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface.

Keyboard shortcuts are available for quick and easy access to functions.

Handling of multiple files is implemented, so the user can easily select many
video files and step between them either automatically or by the press of a

The GUI is skinnable, allowing everyone to get the look-and-feel they want

You can easily switch from window to full screen display and back (only for
registered users).

DvPlayer can be placed into AmiDock and the user can drag'n'drop files onto
the DvPlayer icon to make them play instantly. Files can also be dragged into
DvPlayer's window which adds them to the file list.

It is possible to switch between the different audio streams from the menu or
with keyboard shortcuts, even during playback, for example to select a different

The popular .srt and .sub subtitle formats are supported. Subtitles can be
loaded manually or automatically. The position and appearance of subtitles can
also be configured (font, size, colour).

The new 64-bit DOS interface functions of AmigaOS4 are supported to allow files
larger than 2GB to be correctly handled.

For DVD and VideoCD playback, the DVD drive where you have a DVD or VideoCD
inserted will be found automatically. There is no need for the user to specify
device names and unit numbers.

DvPlayer features an I/O plugin system, which allows external plugins to be
developed to expand the functionality of the program. For example a plugin
supporting internet streaming protocols would instantly allow DvPlayer to play
internet streaming videos.
