========================================================================
  aMiPEG 1.1 is a player for MPEG video streams for the Commodore Amiga.
  It is based upon the Berkeley X-Windows player version 2.0, with major
  changes in speed and size.
  Main advantages are much faster decoding of the streams compared with
  other products based on the Berkeley sources, and a real-time scaling
  to fit on a complete HAM screen (no thumbnail animations anymore!).
  If you are using CyberGraphX software from Vision Factory Development
  you can also play MPEG streams in resizeable, true color window on an
  Intuition screen. Version 1.0 adds support for system-streams and
  video hardware found on some gfx-boards.
=========================================================================

HISTORY

  V0.1	* First public release
	* Some cosmetic changes to be done.

  V0.2  * Oops, wrong ZIP code in the snail-mail address
	* Bug with scaling of animations >200 pixel vertical is fixed.
	* Little bit faster & tighter

  V0.3  * HAM6 rendering
	* Somehow, the times got mixed up. NOW it renders to HAM8 with
	  6.5 fps (was 6.3) on the A4000/040 as the code is somewhat
	  streamlined and more parts are moved to assembler.
	* Uses default public screen's mode ID now instead of default monitor's.

  V0.4  * Forgot the Multiscan monitor ID (several people mailed me about this;
	  really sorry guys)
	* Autodetect non-AGA chipset, force HAM6 in this case
	* Minor speed-up in the iDCT (in fact not worth mentioning)
	* This is an intermediate release; 0.5 will contain the TODO stuff
	  listed down there.

  V0.5	by Miloslaw Smyk from now on.
	* CyberGraphX support
	* TODO stuff is still "to do"

  V0.6
	* command line parsing is now done with ReadArgs()
	* DITHER GRAY support added
	* PUBSCREEN keyword lets you easily select "deep" screen to open
	  CyberGraphX window on.
	* MODEID now works with all dithers. You can play MPEGs in HAM
	  even if your default screen doesn't support it.
	* fix for streams with width not divisible by 16.
	* framerate control added (useful on "too fast" Amigas).
	* I/O buffer size can be changed from command line.
	* AmigaGuide documentation.

  V0.7
	* asynchronous I/O for faster/smoother playback from HD
	* now aMiPEG works with OCS/ECS under Kick v40+, too.

  V0.8
	* a long-standing bug in stream parser fixed. Should play more movies now.
	* uses NewLook under Picasso96, too.
	* pressing ESCAPE aborts playback.
	* now uses (and requires) the shared version of asyncio library v39
	* file remained locked after unsuccessful playback
	* recompiled with SAS/C 6.58

  V1.0  MAJOR RELEASE (with guest appearance from Jussi T. Lindgren)
	* system-streams (interleaved video and audio) supported. (JTL)
	* YCrCb->RGB and scaling hardware of CV64/3D (and upcoming
	  CVPPC/BVPPC) supported. (MS)
	* pattern matching and ASL file-requester (JTL)
	* full screen playback (MS)

  V1.1   
	* now also PicassoIV-PIP with YCrCb->RGB and scaling hardware is
	  supported, done by Tobias Seiler
	* PIPE: works again
	* LOOP mode with HAM8 display works correctly now
	* minor modifications in stream parser, by Tobias Seiler
	* some small fixes regarding scaling
	* docs updated
