Changes in release 1.5.2:
Fixed crash on some DVD-Audio with empty Title.

UDP / HTTP Reader

Fixed opening files if timestamps do not start from scratch.
Added support for reading comments for FLAC tracks, added support for tags "CUESHEET" and "METADATA_BLOCK_PICTURE".
Improved playback of live broadcasts and recordings.

Fixed calculation of timestamps for audio tracks.

Added support for IVF files ('DKIF').
Extended support for RAW MPEG4 files (DivX5 and others).

Fixed opening of some small files.

Added support for ID3v2 in the header of APE files.
Updated ID3v2 support in WAV files.

Fixed 16bit BD LPCM decoding.
Added support for PCM A-law and mu-law decoding.
Remaked and fixed E-AC3 transmission over the bitstream via HDMI.
Processing time stamps has been remaked, which should make playback of some formats (for example, RealAudio) more even.
Added support for decoding DVD-Audio with two groups of channels whose frequency or bitdeph is different.
Improved TrueHD bitstreaming.

Fixed output of an inverted RGB image when working with VSFilter.
If YUV video parameters are not specified, then set BT.601 or BT.709 based on the resolution for more correct conversion to RGB.
Fixed playback of H.264 streams with a high ReFrames value.
The frame size for the "Vertical stereo pair" mode has been adjusted.
Now the flag on the type of interlace and color space of the parent filter (container) has a higher priority.
Added support for RGBP16, which gives Avisynth+ together with FFVideoSource.
Improved stream compatibility check with hardware decoding.
Added the ability to hardware video decoding with a resolution of 720x1280 for older versions of Intel HD.

Added support for video "Vidvox Hap".
Extended UtVideo support.
Improved support for VC-1, MPEG-1/2, MPEG-4.
The decoder now receives additional information from internal splitters.
Added support for FMP4 codec (a kind of MPEG-4).
Added support for AOMedia Video 1 (AV1).
Fixed a hang after stopping when decoding 3D MVC and output via madVR.
Fixed ffvhuff decoder.
Fixed artifacts when time search H.264 video on AMD video adapters.
Various changes in the HEVC decoder.
