JPEG Saver 5.30

There are a few improvements and some fixes in this version. Nothing spectacular though.

More slideshow options

JPEG Saver has had the option of displaying as a slideshow via the Windows Explorer folder context menu for quite a long time now. For this version I have split the slideshow options out into a new dialog available from the main tab.

The new dialog has the options that were previously in the interactive options dialog, plus a new one to display the slideshow as a window on the desktop. This is the same as passing in the /g command line option to set the window size and position, and the dialog contains the relevant inputs for the window width, height, X and Y offsets.

JPEG Saver 5.29

Just a few small updates this time, I probably spent more time testing and checking through code than actually adding anything new.

Just Go Away

All that testing and checking was because I have made this version exit faster, and I wanted to be fairly sure that it wouldn't cause any problems. In the end I didn't find anything important that was adversely affected by this change, but I did a bit of tidying on my way through.

One Way or Another

The hotkey that hides and shows the text (usually 'c') now only hides the text displayed by items instead of hiding item text and status messages. I've added in another hotkey (default 'shift-c') that acts the old way and hides everything.

JPEG Saver 5.28.1

There are a couple of bugs fixed and a few minor improvements in this version of JPEG Saver. I remembered to check that it works on Windows 7 this time as well.

Video buffering

The biggest change in this version is the addition of a fixed buffer for decompressed video frames. In previous versions JPEG Saver would allocate memory for each frame and pass it over to the renderer where it would be deallocated.

That is a bit inefficient, and the way JPEG Saver was queueing the frames meant that it could also end up using a lot of memory when jumping forwards or backwards through the video. I have also tidied up how JPEG Saver does the jumping around, which leads onto the major problem I fixed in this version.
