MONOGRAM FLV Mux 0.9.2.0

May 11th, 2009 Posted in DirectShow, Free Software | 18 Comments »

Hello,

with the help of one of our coders - Siri, we’ve been able to make a new update of the FLV muxer filter. The new build supports H.264, VP6 and AAC streams and also contains some code cleanups. The muxer also supports B-frames (when connected to MONOGRAM x264 Encoder).

The source code is located in the WebSVN repository or can be downloaded with the following command:

svn co svn://dev.monogram.sk/public/flv_mux/trunk

MONOGRAM AAC Decoder 0.9.6.0

March 8th, 2009 Posted in Free Software | 34 Comments »

Hey,

it’s been a month since I’ve posted anything new so I guess it’s about time to do something. Here’s the latest AAC decoder with the following changes:

  • Channel mapping works as it should
  • Seeking now works with files (some MKV) that don’t have time stamps set for all frames
  • Another LATM media type has been added for Windows 7
  • Object type is detected for each decoded frame - HE mode is properly indicated in the property page

I have also had plans to do 7.1 channel support but did not have time to create such files for myself nor luck to find them anywhere so if you want to make things easy for me and are in possession of such files go ahead and post them to me.

I’m damn busy

February 6th, 2009 Posted in News | 5 Comments »

Hi,

I’m getting lots of emails asking for stuff I’ve promised so I think I should explain why I’m silent these days.

We are having some busy times in MONOGRAM finishing several very interesting projects and I’ve basically spent the past days coding like hell and sleeping (the smaller part). Furthermore I’m also sick with headaches so I’m having hard times focusing properly. Let’s give me a week or two and I’m back again.

So long,

Igor

MONOGRAM Musepack Update

January 18th, 2009 Posted in Free Software | 21 Comments »

Hi,

after several months there is finally an update for the Musepack filter pack with the following changes:

  • FIXED - Decoder produced 6dB lower output
  • ADDED - Splitter now supports APE v2.0 tags and IAMMediaContent interface
  • ADDED - Splitter now supports chapters
  • Decoder is now in version 0.9.2.0
  • Splitter is now in version 0.4.0.0

The chapter support is implemented using the IAMStreamSelect interface. Many popular players such as Media Player Classic provide a popup menu for this interface automatically so the chapter support should work naturally with them.

The complete source code is located in the Musepack SVN Repository

MONOGRAM MP4 Mux 0.9.3.0 Alpha

January 13th, 2009 Posted in Free Software | 29 Comments »

Hi,

as promised here’s the first testing version of the new MP4 mux filter I’m working on. First I’d like to say that this filter is not yet mature so you should really take it as that. So far I have only focused on H.264 and AAC support.

Basically you can use this filter to directly remux e.g. MKV files with H.264 and AAC streams but if you are using B-Frames the only way they are going to work properly is to use latest MONOGRAM x264 Encoder (currently unpublished 1.0.3.0 build can be found HERE). I would also recommend you to use MONOGRAM AAC Encoder (latest SVN build HERE) for audio encoding. To make a MP4 file connect the “File Writer” filter to the output of this mux filter.

I have started to work on support for x264vfw (via VFW DirectShow wrapper) but I still did not manage to make B-Frames work correctly with VFW.

If you find anything strange besides the above mentioned things please do report it.

This filter does not come with open source but is free for non-commercial use.
