Link to Milestone (download links included)

  • New:
    • Formats: The space key can now be used to enable/disable formats
    • Miscellaneous: Add button to export key bindings
    • Add the ability to choose the scale factor (relative to the screen size) for the auto-fit zoom
    • Internal Subtitles Renderer: Show all subtitles tracks in the Play -> Subtitles menu. That includes all the embedded tracks exhibited by the source filter and the external tracks.
    • Add a new shader that over brightens with gradient from the bottom to the top of the screen. It needs LCD monitors with low viewing angle (~170/160).
    • DVB: Remember audio and subtitle track selection.
    • Add an OSD reminder when Escape is pressed in D3D Fullscreen
    • Ticket #649, Add RARFileSource as an internal filter. Allows rar files without compression to be played without unpacking them.
    • Ticket #899, DVB: Add signal statistic to the status bar
    • Ticket #1025/#1054, Add the ability to select the default track directly by its number in MPC-HC and the standalone MPEG Splitter
    • Ticket #2050, Add Romanian translation
    • Ticket #2905, Support DTS-HD and E-AC3 passthrough
    • Ticket #2935, Add support for sending “Now playing” information to Skype
  • Changed:
    • UI: Use a more native look and feel for the options dialog tree
    • More resilient support for MPL2 and SRT subtitles formats:
      • Ticket #2779, Support MicroDVD tags in MPL2 subtitles files. This is normally not supported but MPL2 files that use MicroDVD tags for formatting are quite common.
      • Support SRT files with missing millisecond part in the timecodes.
    • Re-enable the option to bypass the DVD/BD path selection. The user won’t be asked to choose the location of the DVD/BD player (or folder) when this option is enabled.
    • Changed default D3D Fullscreen hotkey to Ctrl+Alt+F
    • Disabled Frame Time Correction hotkey by default
    • DVB: Some filters that are known to be incompatible with the BDA source filters are now blacklisted
    • External filters: Use two separated lists for x86 and x64 since x86 filters only work with MPC-HC x86 and vice versa
    • Ticket #978, Apply the “Repeat” option after “Play next in the folder”: the option will now take effect after the next file in the folder was played (similarly to what happens for playlist items)
    • Ticket #1620, UI: Use the new styled radio bullet for menu’s items
    • Ticket #2878, Removed obsolete MSN Messenger support
