General:

You can download it from the front page.

This release improves audio sync, fixes video playback bugs, improves stability and fixes other bugs!


Changes since 3.4.1:
  • General:
    • Improved fontconfig cache creation
    • The shared directory setting in the config is read more safely
    • Fixed video playback on some renderers including OPPO devices
    • Fixed a crash with certain files
    • Fixed a buffer display error
  • Languages:
    • Updated Spanish translation (thanks, AlfredoRamos!)
  • External Components:
    • Updated FFmpeg to builds from 2014-02-12, which:
      • Improves support for the following video codecs: H.264, H.265, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, VC-1, VP8, VP9
      • Improves support for the following audio codecs: AC-3, DTS, WMA
      • Improves support for the following containers: AVI, Matroska, MPEG-TS
      • Fixes memory leaks
      • Improves detection of 60FPS
      • Improves audio sync
    • Updated MediaInfo for Windows to 0.7.64, which:
      • Fixes crashes
    • Updated Netty to 3.7.0

Upgrade Notes:

For all versions below 3.2.0:
If you have enabled FFmpeg's fontconfig or hid the New Media folder, you will need to re-apply those settings.

For all versions below 3.0.0-b1:
It is recommended to delete your UMS.conf file prior to installing this version. Windows users can choose the "clean install" option while installing instead.

Awesome!
Improves support for the following video codecs: H.264, H.265, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, VC-1, VP8, VP9
So does this mean we can now use ffmpeg to transcode to these better? i'm thinking Chromecast and that h.264 issue we noticed.

I hate to say this, but every release after 3.4.0 doesn't work quite right with my PS3. FF and Rewind used to run somewhat smoothly; 3.4.1 and 3.4.2 jump by minutes backwards and forwards. Copying MPG files produced by mkv2vob no longer show % copied, but copy like .mkv's with no estimate of completion.

Fixed a crash with certain files
I experienced this with 3.4.0 for OS X. Sadly the crash locked up the player.

Watched a film tonight *ahem* Gravity with 3.4.2 - OS X, fluid playback. Great experience on the Panasonic DMP-BDT330.
