./multimedia/libmatroska, Extensible open standard Audio/Video container format

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.6.3, Package name: libmatroska-1.6.3, Maintainer: salo

Matroska aims to become THE Standard of Multimedia Container Formats.
It was derived from a project called MCF, but differentiates from it
significantly. It is based on EBML (Extensible Binary Meta Language),
a binary derivative of XML.

Matroska is designed with the future in mind. It incorporates features
you would expect from a modern container format, like:

- Streamable over internet (HTTP and RTP)
- Fast seeking in the file
- High error recovery
- Menus (like DVDs have)
- Chapter entries
- Selectable subtitle streams
- Selectable audio streams
- Modularly extendable

multimedia: Replace RMD160 checksums with BLAKE2s checksums

All checksums have been double-checked against existing RMD160 and
SHA512 hashes

libmatroska: updated to 1.6.2

Released v1.6.2.

* In release 1.6.1 the version number in CMakeLists.txt wasn't
updated, affecting the installed cmake and pkgconfig files. The
version number has been bumped to 1.6.2 in all relevant files now.

Released v1.6.1.

* "KaxBlockAddIDValue" class: this class is no longer marked as
"mandatory" in order to coincide with the latest specification.

libmatroska: updated to 1.6.0

Released v1.6.0.

* libEBML v1.4.0 is now required.

* Due to breaking ABI the soname version has been bumped to 7.0.0.

* Default symbol visibility is now "hidden", reducing binary size.

* Converted some things pointed out by cppcheck & clang-tidy to
C++11.

* Fixed a lot of issues pointed out by clang-tidy.

* A C++11 compliant compiler is now required. Several of its
features are now used in the source.

* "KaxCueData" class: added "PositionSet" overrides taking
"KaxSimpleBlock" arguments.

* "KaxSeekHead" class: the "IndexThis" function now returns a
pointer to the newly allocated "KaxSeek" instance.

* "KaxBlockData" class: the "SetReferencedTimecode" function is
now public.

* Fixed classes for updates in the current specification:
KaxTrackTimecodeScale (can be written again), TimeSlice,
SliceLaceNumber, TrackAttachmentLink (these cannot be written
anymore), KaxContentEncAlgo (it's mandatory), KaxChapLanguageIETF
(can occur multiple times), KaxFileUsedStartTime,
KaxFileUsedEndTime (DivX-related elements, cannot be written
anymore)

* Added classes for new elements from the current specification:
KaxBlockAdditionMapping, KaxBlockAddIDValue, KaxBlockAddIDName,
KaxBlockAddIDType, KaxBlockAddIDExtraData,
KaxContentEncAESSettings, KaxContentEncAESSettings.

* The MATROSKA_VERSION pre-processor definition has been
removed. You used to be able toe restrict compiling with only
those classes for elements contained in Matroska v1, but that
hasn't worked since 2010, so… yeah.

* Build system: more fixes for building libMatroska as a DLL on
Windows wrt. symbol visibility.
