- Support for translations. This release is available in english, german, and czech.
- A new stereo-3D output format: HDMI frame packing mode for some 3D TV sets.
Bino 0.9.2 is released!
This release fixes various minor problems and improves compatibility with some video formats, especially Ogg/Theora.
Bino 0.9.1 is released!
This release uses multithreading to read, decode, and display video data in parallel, for better performance. Several bugs were fixed.
Bino 0.9.0 is released!
This release contains a lot of improvements:
- Video and audio streams can now be selected.
- All parameters can now be changed during playback, including input and output modes.
- Support for green/magenta and amber/blue anaglyph glasses is added.
- The implementation of the high-quality Dubois anaglyph method is improved.
- Seeking now works with more file formats.
Bino 0.8.1 is released!
This release does not have any new features, but fixes some bugs and improves the GUI.
Bino 0.8 is released!
Again there are many changes in this release:
- Adjustable ghostbusting to reduce crosstalk artifacts.
- Parallax adjustment.
- Mouse-based seeking.
- Initial support for choosing an audio stream.
- Improved compatibility with many video types.
Bino 0.7 is released!
There are many changes in this release. The video output was rewritten for improved quality, and now requires OpenGL 2.1 + framebuffer objects. Bino can now recognize the input format based on file name conventions (see the man page). There is a new 3D Equalizer output mode. A benchmark mode was added. Multithreaded video decoding is enabled by default on multi-core systems. And much more...
Note that sRGB textures are currently broken with some free OpenGL drivers, e.g. Mesa/r600. See freedesktop.org bug 32323. If your video is displayed too bright, you can set the environment variable
SRGB_TEXTURES_ARE_BROKEN to enable a temporary workaround.
Bino 0.6 is released!
This release fixes several bugs, including random audio crashes on some systems.
Bino 0.5 is released!
The big news in this release is initial support for multi-display setups.
Additionally, the GUI now remembers your last input and output settings, and the masking 3D output modes (those using alternating columns or rows) now use appropriate filtering for higher quality output.
(Version 0.4 had a few annoying bugs and was quickly replaced with 0.5.)
Bino 0.3 is released!
This release adds a simple GUI, based on Qt. Freeglut is not used anymore. Several bugs have been fixed and several performance improvements were made.
Bino 0.2 is released!
This version fixes a few bugs and portability problems, and adds support for more output formats.
Bino 0.1 is released!
This is the first version. It already plays a lot of 3D videos (see the examples), and of course 2D videos as well.
Try it, it's fun :-)
