xine is a free multimedia player. It plays back CDs, DVDs, and VCDs. It also decodes multimedia files like AVI, MOV, WMV, and MP3 from local disk drives, and displays multimedia streamed over the Internet.

A new release series!


Wonders will never cease!

xine-lib (1.2.0) 2012-01-01
  * Add support for VDR.
  * Add support for VDPAU.
  * xine-config is deprecated in favour of pkg-config libxine.
    Use "pkgconfig --variable=foo libxine" where you previously used
    "xine-config --foo".
  * Reorder and modify public structures to reduce the holes caused by padding
    especially on 64-bit architectures.
  * Remove the buttons array from video_overlay, as the feature linked to that
    was never implemented. This change reduces by 10MB the memory usage of
    xine-lib during playback (1/3 of the memory used while playing an mp3).
  * Update libmpcdec (formerly libmusepack) to version 1.2.6 (newer than the
    previous Subversion snapshot) and contextually move it to
    contrib/libmpcdec to separate from xine's own code.
  * Save plugins' cache in the defined cache home directory as per XDG Base
    Directory Specification.
  * Use XDG-defined cache home directory for cddb cache.
  * Use XDG-defined cache home directory for win32codecs fake registry.
  * Use XDG-defined data directories to look up fonts files both while using
    FreeType2 and the standard bitmap fonts for OSD.
  * Replace internal libdts 0.0.2 with libdca 0.0.5, and contextually move it
    to contrib/libdca to separate from xine's own code.
  * Add another message code to allow for auth prompts. Previously, it was
    not possible to distinguish between '401 Authentication Required' and
    '403 Forbidden'.
  * Merge the demuxer and the decoder for NSF files in a combined plugin.
  * Move modplug demuxing to its own plugin. This way, binary distributions
    can make it optional as it requires quite a bit of CPU time during
    initialisation, even for audio files that nothing have to do with modplug.
  * Collapse the Ogg demuxer, and the Theora, Vorbis and Speex decoders in the
    same 'xiph' plugin.
  * Remove aRTs output plugin; ALSA's DMix can allow both xine and aRTs to
    access the audio device at the same time for Linux, and if other
    operating systems lack a proper software mixing facility you can
    consider alternative daemons. Note: aRTs will not be present in KDE 4.
  * Convert the FAQ and the Hacker's Guide from DocBook SGML to DocBook 4.4
    XML, and the figures from fig files to SVG files.
  * The XML parser no longer ignores <?...?> elements.
    Such elements are handled as if they were after the XML content for
    compatibility reasons, though they must appear before it.
  * The XML parser handles CDATA elements.
  * Text handling within XML is improved.
  * DVB subtitles' opacity is now controllable.
  * Extend DVB subtitling capabilities. (Still bitmap-only.)
  * The internal copies of libcdio and libvcd are no longer present,
    you need to use an installed copy of them if you want VCD support.
  * Replace get_* functions for literals with direct string access.
  * Use default dispose() functions when they just need to call free() in
    various plugins.
  * Rename METHOD_BY_EXTENSION to METHOD_BY_MRL as it also checks prefixes
    for specific input protocols.
  * Check for supported extensions before opening the plugin and remove
    redundant core from plugins.
  * Use libavutil-provided implementations for CRC, SHA1 and BASE64 algorithms,
    this makes use of libavutil even outside the FFmpeg decoding plugin,
    but avoid duplication of algorithms between different plugins.
  * Use av_mallocz() when xine_xmalloc_aligned() wouldn't be needed.
  * FFmpeg is now required as an external dependency; if you want to build
    xine-lib from source, please download a copy of FFmpeg from their SVN
  * Remove SyncFB video output plugin, the kernel module needed is no more
    active and thus it's no more usable. If you were using SyncFB somehow,
    please use DirectFB or VIDIX instead.
  * 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.
  * Report more video output capabilities via (port)->get_capabilities():
    colour controls, zooming, colour keying.
