* Add version check for CACA library and disable CACA plugin if needed
* Fix playback of some H.264 files (broken in 1.1.16).
* Various other build & bug fixes.
* Some FAQ list updates.
xine-lib (1.1.16) 2009-01-07

- Integer underflow in qt compressed atom handling. (CVE-2008-5241)
- Buffer indexing using untrusted or unchecked values. (CVE-2008-5243)
- Integer overflows in the ffmpeg audio decoder and the CDDA server.
- Heap buffer overflow in the ffmpeg video decoder.
- Avoid segfault on invalid track type in Matroska files.
- Avoid underflow (compressed atoms) in the Qt demuxer.
* Fix reported compilation failures (with C++ programs).
* Fix CDDB access in 64-bit builds.
* Fix seeking FLV clips that don't specify the movie length in the headers.
* Support H.264 and AAC streams within FLV.
* Fix timing issues (broken audio) on mingw.
* Add ID3 tag TDRC to replace/complement the deprecated tag TYER.
* Add a new meta-tag, "Composer", and use it in the FLAC demuxer.
* Correct AAC channel ordering for multi-channel audio, at least for FLAC
when using ALSA or PulseAudio. (Needs a proper fix.)
* Add position-based seeking independent from seekpoints.
* Fix some XCB Xv attribute configuration breakage.
* Add a configuration option for Xv bicubic filtering, implemented in
* Recognise Xv "blitter" adaptors for port selection purposes.
NOTE: you will need to remove ~/.xine/catalog.cache when upgrading from
xine-lib 1.1.15 or older if you wish to use this extra option.
* Fix MMS media requests where the URI contains %-encoded characters.
* Fix two hangs related to stopping playback of broken audio streams where
no audio data is sent to the output thread.
* Fix WAV demuxer to send the last frames when they don't fit perfectly into
xine-lib (1.1.15) 2008-08-14
* Security fixes:
- Fix crashes with various corrupted media files, including Ogg.
This includes a libfaad update from the 1.2 branch.
- Delay V4L video frame preallocation until we know how large they'll be.
- Fix an exploitable ID3 heap buffer overflow.
(CVE-2008-5234, vector 2)
- Check for possible buffer overflow attempts in the Real demuxer.
- Use size_t for data length variables where there may be int overflows.
- Add some checks for memory allocation failures.
- Fix crashes with MP3 files with metadata consisting only of separators.
* Use external ffmpeg and libfaad by default.
* V4L: Don't segfault if asked for an input that doesn't exist.
* Recognise AMR audio (normally found in 3GP files).
* Recognise Snow video.
* Xv deinterlacing didn't take the size of the deinterlaced image into
account; on some chipsets, this would cause image corruption, while on
others, there would be no problem.
* V4L: only try and set the tuner if we're going to use it. Setting the tuner
when using baseband video (CVBS, S-Video) breaks the input.
xine-lib (1.1.14) 2008-06-29
* DVB changes:
- Reacquire PIDs whenever a PMT is parsed. (Some channels' PIDs are
changed on a regular basis.)
- Recognise more stream formats (as defined in the broadcast PMT).
- Allow automatic detection of more DVB tuning parameters.
- Allow the GUI to be disabled.
- Allow configuration of the location of channels.conf.
* V4L: allow TV standard selection.
* Allow input plugins to report MIME type information.
This is used for demuxer plugin selection immediately before testing the
filename extension (so it won't work when demuxer selection is done by
stream content only). [Bug #120]
* Allow input plugins to ask for a specific demuxer, overriding the normal
demuxer selection methods. (Most won't need this.)
* The Xv and XxMC video output plugins now support Xv port selection via
two methods: port number and port type (currently "any", "overlay" and
"textured video"). Port number takes precedence; the plugins will fall
back on another port of the same type (if a type was specified) then on
whatever they can find.
XvMC does not support port selection at present.
(Backported from the 1.2 branch.)
* Fix MPEG TS audio stream problems introduced in 1.1.13.
* Add basic aspect ratio detection for Windows Media Video streams.
xine-lib (1.1.13) 2008-06-15
* Security fixes:
- Buffer overflow in the NSF demuxer which may allow remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code
via an NSF file with a long title or copyright message. (CVE-2008-1878)
- For extra safety against possible Integer overflows like the ones found
in CVE-2008-1482, backport more calloc usage from 1.2 branch.
* Improved JACK output plugin.
* Added MIME types and .mpp for musepack.
* Fixed display of some MJPEG streams (YUVJ420P).
* Deprecate xine_xmalloc() function, see src/xine-utils/utils.c for more
information about the reason.
* Provide a useful implementation of xine_register_log_cb().
xine-lib (1.1.12) 2008-04-14
* Security fixes:
- Insufficient boundary check in speex audio decoder. (CVE-2008-1686)
* Fixed and improved the PulseAudio driver.
* Fixed a regression in 126.96.36.199 which broke Quicktime container handling.
* And another, this time in the Matroska demuxer.
* Added a tool to assist with generating front ends' desktop files. It
lists MIME types & filename extensions known to the installed xine-lib.
* Various Real codec improvements, including:
- RV20 no longer causes segfaults (observed on amd64);
- Cook is now handled by ffmpeg.
* Added a video output plugin intended for passing raw data to the front end.
xine-lib (188.8.131.52) 2008-03-30
* Security fixes:
- Integer overflows in FLV, Qt, Real, WC3Movie, Matroska and FILM
demuxers, allowing remote attackers to trigger heap overflows and
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2008-1482)
* Added a few more memory allocation checks to the above demuxers.
* WAV file playback fix: don't assume that the first chunk is "fmt ".
* Don't try to play partial 24-bit AIFF frames (decoder would lose data).
* Fixed AIFF comment chunk handling and sample rate reading.
* LPCM fixes: input over-reading, conversion of 24-bit samples.
xine-lib (1.1.11) 2008-03-19
* Security fixes:
- Array Indexing Vulnerability in sdpplin_parse(). (CVE-2008-0073)
* Reworked the plugin directory naming so that external plugins don't have
to be rebuilt for every release. We now use a naming scheme based on the
API/ABI versioning, checking older directories - with this release, the
plugin directory name is 1.20, and if this gets bumped to 1.21 in a
future release, 1.20 will still be available for external plugins.
(Any directories not 1.* won't be looked in.)
* Made the version parsing much more reliable; it wasn't properly coping
with four-part version numbers. This affects any program whose build
scripts use xine-lib's automake macros.
* Fixed an off-by-one in the FLAC security fix patch. This breakage was
causing failure to play some files.
* Support 16-bit big-endian DTS audio.
* Improved frame snapshot API. (ABI extension.)
* Re-add support for # (stream parameter separator) in raw filenames,
without the bugs found in the original implementation.
(This is a convenience feature for users only. Front ends which rely on
it for functions like subtitle file detection must instead use file://
MRLs; if they don't, we consider them to be buggy.)
* Fixed long delay when closing stream on dual core systems [Bug #33]
* DVD playback improvement: don't trust the file sizes.
* Build fixes for use with recent ffmpeg.
xine-lib (184.108.40.206) 2008-02-07
* Security fixes:
- Array index vulnerability which may allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted FLAC tag, causing a stack buffer overflow.
- Buffer overflow in the Matroska demuxer (demuxers/demux_matroska.c)
which may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
or possibly execute arbitrary code via a Matroska file with invalid
frame sizes. (CVE-2008-1161)
* Fix a RealPlayer codec detection bug.
* Improve detection of MP3 streams with ID3v2 tags. Don't trust the tag
xine-lib (1.1.10) 2008-01-26
* Security fixes:
- Buffer overflow which allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary
code or crash the client program via a crafted ASF header.
(CVE-2008-1110, related to CVE-2006-1664)
* Update Ogg and Annodex mimetypes and extensions.
* Change the default v4l device paths to /dev/video0 and /dev/radio0.
* Fix support for subtitles with schemes (e.g. http://), partly broken
* Unescape the filename in "#save:". This allows filenames to contain ';'
etc. without ambiguity, e.g. "#save:foo%3B1.ts" -> "foo;1.ts", but front
end authors should be careful with xine-lib older than 1.1.10.
* Backported xine-config & libxine.pc from 1.2.
Consequently, xine-config now requires pkg-config.
* Don't discard audio samples forever. Fixed streaming playback.
* Fix a possible crash on channel change in the DVB plugin.
* Flash video demuxer improvements and bug fixes.
* Make the V4L ALSA audio input device configurable. (This needs more work.)
xine-lib (220.127.116.11) 2008-01-11
* Security fixes:
- Buffer overflow which allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary
code via a crafted SDP Abstract attribute.
(CVE-2008-0225, a.k.a. CVE-2008-0238)
(Fix ported from mplayer changeset 22821)
* Fix a read-past-end bug in xine-lib's internal strtok_r replacement.
(Only affects systems without strtok_r.) [Bug #19]
* Fix a bug which causes video playback display errors on PPC/Darwin.
xine-lib (1.1.9) 2008-01-06
* Fix dvd://.../title[.chapter] handling (somewhat broken in 1.1.8).
* Fix switching DVB subtitles channels.

* Improve handling of invalid or unknown frame sizes.
* Fixed handling of streamed Flash videos (broken in 1.1.5).
* Fixed division by zero in sputext decoder
* Build fix for when using Linux 2.6.23 headers. [Bug SF 1820958]
* Implemented decoding of XML character entities with codes >= 256.
This requires conversion to UTF-8 of entities with codes >= 128.
* Handle initial Unicde BOMs in XML; convert other UTF encodings to UTF-8.
* Fixed ATSC support. [Bug SF 1749508]
* Fixed a possible DVB plugin crash when switching channels.
* Fixed a crash closing the frontend. [Bug #7]

* Fixed ALSA close function to not discard all data that had been written
but not played yet.
* Fixed a race condition between ao_loop and ao_close to not lose the last

(This was broken by ffmpeg revision 9283).
* Enabled the WMV VC1 & VMware Screen (ffmpeg) codecs.
* Fixed a crash that happened when a video output was closed
* Made the Real demuxer recognise simple lists of http references.
* Require correct URL encoding of '#'s which aren't separators.
* Don't decode %nn in raw filenames. [Bug SF 1784272]
* Always enable a52dec capabilities for external a52dec, this makes it
possible to use the DJB accelerated FFT when using the external a52dec
liba52 library. [Bug #9]
* Fixed an input_pvr issue with 'set input' for ivtv versions 0.10.6+
* demux_aiff: only check for chunk's size being lesser than 100 when
reading the COMM_TAG. [Bug #6]
* Avoid potential mislinkage at install time if a system-wide libxine.so
is present but is *not* pointing at libxine.so.1.
* Update French translation, thanks to Christophe Giraud. [Bug #15]
* Detect corrupted or broken seek tables in CBR MP3 files. [Bug #3]
* Fixed an issue in input_pvr with setting the frequency of the tuner for
ivtv versions 0.10.6+
* Add Turkish translation by Serdar Soytetir and Server Acim.
* Workaround for subtitle rendering when using variable-length character
encodings other than UTF-8. (There is probably still some breakage here.)
xine-lib (1.1.8) 2007-08-27
* Send a channel-changed event to the frontend when receiving the SYNC
string from last.fm streaming server.
* Disable mediaLib support by default (the licenses probably disallow the
distribution of xine binaries built against mediaLib, and on non-VIS
capable boxes it's probably worse than our own code).
* Rename endianness-reading macros so that they don't collide with Solaris
system macros. BE_/LE_ are now _X_BE_ and _X_LE_.
* Add an extra function to allow front ends to rename their old,
badly-named configuration items.
* Various build fixes and cleanups for Solaris, plugin dependencies etc.
* Fix some memory leaks in the Vorbis decoder and video overlays.
* Fix a problem with the goom plugin which could cause it to stop working.
* Clean up "%" unescaping in MRLs; correctly handle "%" in DVD and VCD MRLs.
* Fix a crash with "dvb:/".
* DVB subtitle fixes: deadlock prevention, thread leakage, spec compliance.
* Allow the DVB input plugin to timeout if it is receiving no signal.
* Fix an audio resampling problem which was causing regular clicking.
* Fix build with recent glibc and a debugging #define. [Bug SF 1773769]
* Fix handling of multiple MPEG TS audio streams & subtitle languages.
* Add colouring for bold & italic in text subtitles.
* Simple scaling of subtitles to fit the frame width (intended to cope
with common DVB resolutions such as 544x576).
* Various small video frame-handling bug fixes.
* Add options to control bob deinterlacing in the XxMC video output plugin.
xine-lib (1.1.7) 2007-06-07
* Support libdca (new name for libdts) by shuffling around the dts.h file.
* Add support for MDHD version 1 atom in demux_qt. [Bug SF 1679398]
* Handle single-quoted attribute values in XML.
* Fix default paths for RealPlayer libraries (broken in 1.1.5).
[Bug SF 1707526]

* Improved MPEG2 detection and optimised processing.
* Extract AFD information (commonly used in UK DVB-T) from the MPEG stream.
* Ensure that the ffmpeg video image size is properly initialised.
* Allow XxMC to switch back to software decoding; don't deinterlace if it's
not needed for any given frame.
* Document "dvba:" MRLs (ATSC with full tuning info).
* Fix VCD playback (broken since 1.1.4).
* Fix demuxing of FLAC files with ID3v2 tags.
* Use the integer versions of Speex decoding functions, this avoids an
iteration over the decoded frames to transform them to integers, and
also avoids an improper saturation.
* Prioritize the musepack demuxer over mpgaudio, as sometimes the latter can
misfire and report a good file as unplayable.
* Fix an mmap problem with huge files on 32-bit systems.
* Improved MPEG PES stream handling: specifically, misdetection of data
streams as PES streams.
* Handle unplugged ALSA device (fixes crashes) and if the frontend does not
handle the event continue playback to the none output.
* Disable aRTs output plugin by default, it's deprecated and will be removed
in 1.2 series.
* Fix a colour format conversion crash in the fb video output driver.
xine-lib (1.1.6) 2007-04-17
* Split the DirectFB plugin into X11 and non-X versions.
* Improve the Mac OS X video output plugin. Thanks to Matt Messier.
* Fixed the XcbXv plugin - an empty plugin would be built if "old" Xv
* Reworked the channels.conf file handling in the DVB plugin. Previously,
with junk content, the plugin could potentially consume lots of memory
(possibly causing a local DoS). Also, a few small memory leaks have been
* Fixed a CDDA-related crash and a DVD-related hang, both caused by the
same change in 1.1.5.
xine-lib (1.1.5) 2007-04-10
* Security fixes:
- Fix heap overflow in DMO and DirectShow loaders.
Thanks to Kees Cook for reporting.
(CVE-2007-1246 & CVE-2007-1387) [Bug SF 1676925]
* Improved PulseAudio plugin, now only one connection per instance is opened
and the mainloop is threaded to reduce latency during playback.
* Added XCB-based output plugins (Xv and XShm), to use in software using
XCB to talk with the server rather than libX11 (like new Kaffeine).
The plugins are contributed by Christoph Pfister with the help of
Vincent Torri, Jamey Sharp and Christophe Thommeret.
* Fix race condition in alsa audio out driver.
* Fixed a crash in the eq2 plugin. [Bug SF 1644312]
* Fixed content type detection for AAC (seekable) streams with ID3v2
tags prefixed clobbering the preview buffer, by skipping over the tag.
* Parse ID3v2 tags on AAC and FLAC files, as well as mp3 files.
* Priority of the AAC encoder is now lower than anything else, so
it's not going to crash xine down if you try to run an mp3 stream
* Relicense the xine-lib XML parser under the GNU LGPL, for use in other
* Improvement in portability to Solaris and NetBSD, thanks to Albert Lee and
Sergey Svishchev respectively.
* Spanish translation updated by Carlos E. Robinson M.
* Don't leave libstk support to be detected automagically; also made it
disabled by default as upstream is dead and a different libstk is found
* Improvement in portability to FreeBSD, merged some patches (with changes)
from the ports.
* Cleaned up Real binary codecs support, adding support for FreeBSD (still
to be completely cleaned up though), and to 64-bit platforms. Also add
two new configure option, one to enable or disable building of Real binary
support altogether and one to choose the path where to look for the codecs
by default (it can, and probably should) be different from the Win32
* Avoid a possible floating-point exception when starting stream playback.
* Now xine can play correctly media on HTTP servers reporting status codes
but no status message.
* Wave files with 24-bit integer PCM streams now should play correctly
(downplayed to 16-bit).
* Added centre-cutout (4:3 in 16:9) to the expand plugin.
Patch by Reinhard Nissl.
* Fix support of block devices for AC3 and DTS demuxers. Thanks to Matthias
Kretz for the original patch.
* Portability fixes for Mac OS X, in particular Mac OS X on the new Intel
Macs. Thanks to Martin Aumueller, Emanuele Giaquinta and Matt Messier.
* Fix amp muting when level is still at 100. Patch by Reinhard Nissl.
* Create at least a 1×1 shared image when the first frame is skipped (and
thus reported as 0×0), to avoid disabling shared memory for all others.
Patch by Reinhard Nissl.
* Send an event when the amp level is modified. Patch by Reinhard Nissl.
* Add support for H.264 video stream in PES packets. Patch by Reinhard Nissl.
* Support multiple audio PID in MPEG TS. Patch by Julian Scheel.
* Improvement in portability to OpenBSD, thanks to Pascal S. de Kloe.
xine-lib (1.1.4) 2007-01-28
* Mark string-type configuration items according to whether they're plain
strings or names of files, device nodes or directories. This information
is available to front ends (via .num_value) so that they can present
file/dir-open dialogue boxes if they so choose.
Subtitle font selection is split up due to this.
* Applied the patch to fix text relocation, provided by PaX Team for Gentoo
and previously applied by other distributions as well. Fixes the non-PIC
code being generated. Note: patch reverted for tomsmocomp (segfault).
* Fix race condition in audio_out by using a recursive mutex; patch by
Reinhard Nissl. [Bug SF 1551911]
* Allow building with Sun CC by fixing the lprintf variadic macro; patch by
Taso N. Devetzis. [Bug SF 1614406]

Kay. [Bug SF 1603503]
* Fix program termination due to invalid Real Media SDP; reported by Roland
Kay. [Bug SF 1602663]
* Fix invalid memory access in Real Media SDP with tailored stream; reported
by Roland Kay. [Bug SF 1602631]
* Don't check for libpostproc version and assume that if libavcodec is found
correctly, libpostproc is of the same version, too. Reported by Ville
Skyttä. [Bug SF 1617344]
* Fix Shorten demuxer: the whole "ajkg" signature has to be found, not only
one character of it. [Bug SF 1601134]
* Implement at least a partial content-based detection of ModPlug-decoded
module files, using the magic numbers from GNU file. This allows to open
module files based on content rather than on their extension only.
[Bug SF 1445746]
* Make the libFLAC-based decoder and demuxer for FLAC files work with recent
FLAC release 1.1.3.
* Replace --enable-flac configure option with --with-libflac, as the FLAC
support is always built-in through the audio demuxer plugin and the FFmpeg
decoder plugin, the option only controls the extra FLAC plugin that uses
libFLAC both for demuxing and decoding.
* Implement a True Audio files demuxer. [Bug SF 1586381]
* Allow decoding of MusePack SV 7.x files (7.1 files at least play fine).
* Fix demuxing of uncompressed VobSub subtitles in Matroska files
* ffmpeg update to 51.29.0
* Workaround ffmpeg buggy codecs that don't release their DR1 frames.
[Bugs SF 1599975, SF 1601299, SF 1319154]
* Fix several segfaults and freezing problem with H264 streams that use a lot
of reference frames (eg. 15) [Bugs SF 1603305, SF 1576588, SF 1267713]
* Fix mpeg4 artifacts introduced in cvs (not present in 1.1.3)
[Bug SF 1625911]
* Initial support to enable/disable ffmpeg codecs. Codecs may be disabled in
groups by --disable-ffmpeg-uncommon-codecs/--disable-ffmpeg-popular-codecs
Think of "uncommon" codecs what people would never want to play with their
PDAs (they will save memory by removing them).
Note: currently both uncommon/popular codecs are _build_ but disabled.
that is, build system still need some improvements to really save memory.
* Fix possible division by zero when pausing (video_out.c).
* Allow disabling build of musepack decoder through a ./configure parameter
* Allow using external libmpcdec for MusePack decoding rather than the
internal copy of an old libmusepack, through a ./configure parameter
* Add support for WavPack files, with both a demuxer and a decoder using
WavPack library. As an alternative, FFmpeg's audio decoder can be used
to decode WavPack files.
* Don't crash when caching a file opened through Samba plugin, thanks to
Timothy Redaelli from Gentoo.
* Fix audio/video sync problem with NTSC DVDs (introduced in 1.1.2).

to non-blocking sockets on the last address found for an host, and allowing
users to provide a connection timeout. [Bug SF 1550844]
* Return the correct error message to frontends when a file is inaccessible or
the network connection is broken. [Bug SF 1550763]
* Support libcaca 0.99, thanks to cjacker huang.
* Fix crash on video-only WMV streams. [Bug SF 1564598]
