Subject: DivX v5.0.2 Updated

Here is a list of the fixes that are in the update.

  • Fixed a lot of memory leaks in the encoder. This should prevent the codec from slowing down gradually during a long encode.
  • Version 5.0.1 encoded 7% slower than 5.0. DOH! Not sure how that happened. This has been fixed and version 5.0.2 is as fast as version 5.0.
  • Fixed a problem where the trace_b.txt log file would be written out during encodes which would take up significant disk space. The log file is no longer written.
  • Fixed a problem where the MP4 Creator would not work on files that included B-frames. The MP4 Creator should now work with all DivX 5.x files.
  • Fixed a bug where the right macroblock would not be displayed with the custom brightness/contrast settings. This would cause a dark or light "band" of video on the right side of the screen.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause playback problems when the seek bar was moved back and forth quickly. This same bug some cause bad frames to be displayed at the beginning of some content when playing back video in Windows Media Player. This should no longer happen.
  • Fixed a bug where the "Decoder Configuration" application would crash when run on Windows 98. The application should now run properly. (Yes, we know we said we fixed this in 5.0.1, but we really fixed it this time.)
