TVersity 0.9.10.5 (June 26, 2007)
Version 0.9.10.5 (June 26, 2007)
* User Interface
o One click "Add to TVersity" from third party websites via a new button; Partner websites can use this new button with media URLs and RSS / OPML / ATOM / RDF feeds to allow their users to add content to TVersity in one click. We will soon announce the first batch of content sites that will add this button. Here is an example button that adds a G4TV RSS feed:
o One click sharing via TVersity from Windows explorer; Right click on any file or folder and you will now find a “Share via TVersity” option.
o Automatic Updates; The UI now issues an alert message when a new version is available and provides a direct link for downloading it.
o Reading of AVI tags can now be turned on/off.
o There is a new variable allowing one to define the maximum number of items per RSS feed TVersity should process (the rest are ignored). This is important with feeds that keep their entire history, which in some cases can be thousands of items.
o Several different WMV versions are now supported when encoding video, all of which can be selected from the GUI. The versions are: MSMPEG4v3, WMV7, WMV8, and WMV9.
o There is an experimental support for encoding to WMV via ffmpeg instead of via Directshow.
* Content Guides and Media Library
o New radio directory by radiotime.com for music and talk radio (channels and shows) organized by genre
o TVersity now comes with the G4TV feeds added as a sample video feed.
o TVersity now supports OPML, this is one more format like RSS / ATOM / RDF (which were already supported) for importing metadata from third party websites.
o Accept files with m2t extension (MPEG2 transport stream).
* PS3 support
o MPEG2 produced by TVersity now works on the PS3, which gives the user an option between MPEG1 and MPEG2 (in the past only MPEG1 produced by TVersity worked on the PS3).
o The copy to PS3 hard drive feature now works when browsing via TVersity.
* Bug fixes and more
o Fix issues with playlists that have items with relative path and add support for absolute pathnames in playlists that have a UNC path (or are located on a network drive).
o The sharing service no longer exits when the user loggs off.
o Conversion of media for playback on some target device, via the flash interface now works again (was broken in the previous relaese but worked in earlier ones).
o Better handling of icecast URLs.
o Metacafe RSS feeds and URLs now work again.
