New ffdshow build (?)

Since the ffdshow thread has been closed, I've having trouble finding information about new builds. Maybe this thread could serve that purpose.

Most are pretty self explanatory anyway, like:
MMX libtheora postprocessing
experimental DV output
updated libavcodec

Changes made to the updated libavcodec library (which is incorperated in ffdshow) can be found here. Posted just for your convenience.

Appearantly there has been a recent fix for some subtitle issues (which I have). But I can't find any build newer than 20050803. Anyone?

What the difference between:
ffdshow-20050822.exe & ffdshow-20050822MSVC71.exe

Does one (or the other) explicitly need MSVC71.dll ? Or not, as it's included in the build or something?

I mirrored it already, right after celtic_druid compiled ffdshow-20050822.exe

I was too lazy to post about that, but you can check
http://ffdshow.faireal.net/

Afaik, ffdshow-20050822.exe & ffdshow-20050822MSVC71.exe = the same code, different compilers (ICL vs. VC), there might be speed difference.
Also, altho this should be rather exceptional or accidental, IIRC there was at least one file in the past that doesn't play with the ICL version but does play with the MSVC version of ffdshow.

Ah, thanks!

As I take it: if errors occur, try the MSVC version, might be slower but probably more stable (especially on AMD's...)

Agreed, just tested ffdshow-20050822.exe and it crashes mpc with my x264 encodes (AMD XP 1800+ CPU).
With ffdshow-20050822MSVC71.exe no playback problems.

NOTE: ffdshow-20050822.exe on x264.nl is really ffdshow-20050822MSVC71.exe (i just renamed it for layout and general purposes, like stability comes first) !

Is the file in question AVC-in-AVI? Or does the same happen for MP4 too? Are there any known 'risky' x264 options? FAQ says Pyramid + Older decoder = doesn't work, but that should be fixed by now. Another report I read was about RDO + Exhausitive
http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.ph...780#post680780
Anyone knows any specific options in x264 that ffdshow doesn't like?

Which options in High Profile? I've tested quite a few AVC files in MP4 with --analyse all --8x8dct (and --bframes 6 --b-pyramid --ref 15), but all of them play fine with the latest ffdshow ICL version. (Although, QuickTime 7 apparantly doesn't like High Profile if complicated)

Indeed, that's my experience too.

But my experience is still limited, and there seem to be some more complicated options that advanced users are testing... x264.exe has really many switches.
