 Log Message:
 Update to 0.8.0 from Leonardo Taccari in PR 49670.
 Release 0.8.0
    Diogo Franco Kovensky released this Feb 17, 2015 - 63 commits to master
    since this release
    Warning: for the first 4 hours of the release, the v0.8.0 tag pointed
    to git master instead of the release. This was fixed later.
    Changes that may break users' config files have been annotated with a
      * (!) vo_opengl_old has been removed. OpenGL rendering now requires
        hardware that can do at least OpenGL 2.1, the oldest version
        supported by vo_opengl.
      * (!) vf_pp has been removed. A version of it can still be accessed
        through lavfilter (e.g. --vf=lavfi=[pp...]), but it receives no QP
        information. Also, vf_dlopen no longer passes QP information to its
        loaded plugin either (it's always 0).
      * (!) vf_softpulldown, vf_swapuv, vf_phase, vf_divtc and vf_ilpack
        have all been removed. Ports or alternative versions of these
        filters are available through libavfilter (vf_lavfi).
      * vf_pullup and vf_noise now are simply wrappers to their libavfilter
        equivalents. Both are only currently available on FFmpeg (not
      * (!) ao_portaudio has been removed. There is good support for the
        native audio drivers of all major desktop platforms, as well as
        ao_sdl and ao_openal as fallbacks.
      * (!) vo_opengl's lscale suboption has been renamed to scale; lradius
        is now scale-radius, lparam1 and lparam2 are now respectively
        scale-param1 and scale-param2; lscale-down is now scale-down. The
        cscale suboption remains as is.
      * (!) Several of the vo_opengl radius-preset aliases supported by
        scale have been removed; use scale-radius to set if needed. For
        example, use --vo=opengl:scale=lanczos:scale-radius=2 instead of
        scale=lanczos2. The default radius is recommended for most filters.
      * (!) vo_opengl no longer supports the stereo suboption. The anaglyph
        effect can be reproduced with the stereo3d filter. The quadbuffer
        support, which requires expensive specialized hardware to begin
        with, is removed.
      * (!) The approx-gamma suboption to vo_opengl has been removed. The
        BT.1886 specification says that it's actually how it's supposed to
        be done so it is now the default when srgb or icc-profile are
        enabled. This does not include BT.1886's gamma drop.
      * (!) The no-scale-sep and indirect suboptions to vo_opengl have been
        removed. These are now autodetected and enabled whenever they would
        have benefit.
      * (!) The --lua and --lua-opts parameters / options are now called
        --script and --script-opts, respectively. The lua subdir of the mpv
        config dir is also now expected to be called scripts instead.
      * (!) The --fixed-vo option has been removed. It has been the default
        for a long time anyway, and disabling fixed-vo is not useful.
      * vo_opengl_hq has been updated to take into account new features.
        fancy-downscaling and sigmoid-upscaling are enabled, "mitchell" is
        now the default for scale-down.
      * The sub-visibility OSD message is now clearer about whether
        subtitles are hidden or just not available / selected.
      * The device IDs given to --audio-device for use with ao_coreaudio
        now use UIDs, so they don't change when devices are added/removed
        or after reboots.
      * --msg-level now also accepts ',' as separator.
      * (Client API) The client API now refuses to initialize if the
        LC_NUMERIC locale is not "C".
      * (Client API) The native type of the msg-level parameter is now a
        key-value list. Setting or reading it as a string still works.
      * (Slave API) The get_property command is now deprecated.
      * Documentation updates.
      * PDF documentation is now disabled by default due to rst2pdf being
        fickle, causing weird build errors.
      * Print desync messages with negative A/V sync as well. While rare,
        it could happen with some uses of --autosync.
 Bug fixes
      * (Windows) Avoid resizing the video window when player is minimized,
        might address bug #1547.
      * (NetBSD) Fix build with v4l2.
      * (Linux) Attempt to address conflicts with the pulseaudio mixer.
        (bug #1578)
      * Multiple cdda:// fixes. (bugs #1555, #1560)
      * VP9 timestamps no longer cause "missing PTS" warnings with new
        enough FFmpeg builds.
      * Fix a crash when using H.264 hardware decoding on new enough
        libavcodecs. (bug #1587)
 New features
      * vo_opengl now supports frame blending to eliminate stuttering when
        the video framerate does not nicely match the display framerate
        through the smoothmotion suboption. This is not meant to
        artificially increase the video's FPS, so there is no "soap opera
        effect" or difficulties with some video types (e.g. anime).
      * vo_opengl now supports sigmoidal upscaling (e.g. for fullscreen),
        which reduces ringing induced by upscaling, enabled through the
        sigmoid-upscaling suboption.
      * vo_opengl now supports ewa_lanczos (Jinc) scaling, which provides
        higher quality with less aliasing. It supports an experimental
        scale-antiringing parameter, which tries to further reduce video
      * vo_opengl now has a linear-scaling suboption, that makes the
        scalers work in linear light. Implied by the srgb, icc-profile or
        the new sigmoid-upscaling suboption.
      * vo_opengl has improved downscaling for higher downscale ratios when
        fancy-downscaling is enabled.
      * Add --keep-open=always to make --keep-open apply to all files
        instead of only the last.
      * mpv now filters the tags that are printed on the console to try to
        hide useless metadata. The filter works as a whitelist, and can be
        configured with the --display-tags option.
      * Add a --sub-scale-by-window option that, when set to 'no', prevents
        subtitles from changing their pixel size when the window changes
      * vo_opengl now technically has GLES 2 and 3 support (but not GLES
        1). GLES 3 support is only tested on Mesa's software emulation.
        GLES 2 has been tested on nvidia drivers. Both GLES modes are
        feature deficient and inefficient due to GLES limitations, so they
        should not be preferred over the standard OpenGL mode.
      * (X11) vo_opengl now supports the icc-profile-auto option on X11
      * The 'A' key now by default cycles through a list of preset aspect
        ratios. Meant to be used to work around broken files.
      * There is now a "force" mode for --loop. Works like "inf", but tries
        to open files/streams even if there was an error on the previous
      * There is now a --log-file option to write mpv's log messages to a
        specifed file.
      * There is now a --audio-file-auto option to automatically load an
        external audio file with certain constraints. Will only load
        external audio if the playing file has a video stream. Set to
        "exact" by default. (bug #967)
      * There is now a --network-timeout option to specify a timeout in
        seconds for network access. If 0 (default), uses the libavformat
        default. If a protocol that doesn't support timeouts is used, this
        option is ignored.
      * (X11) The XF86 special keys are now all mappable in input.conf. All
        keys documented in XF86keysym.h are available, but only as their
        numeric codes.
      * (Linux) The DVB implementation now supports DVB-S2 through S2API.
      * (Linux) The VDR format for channels.conf is now supported and
        preferred. See for
        the syntax. Tuning to DVB-S2 channels requires the VDR-format
      * (Linux) There is now a --dvbin-full-transponder option for handling
        special broadcast cases where PIDs switch, or just to work around
        incomplete PID data.
      * (Client API) There is now an opengl_cb VO, which receives the
        OpenGL context from the libmpv client. This allows a client to
        render libmpv video directly to a provided OpenGL context without
        having to use --wid embedding.
      * (Client API) The aforementioned --wid parameter can now be set at
        any time, but has no effect if a file is already loaded.
      * (Client API) The list of DVD titles can now be queried.
      * (Client API) There is now a filtered-metadata property, containing
        only the tags allowed by --display-tags.
      * (Client API) There is now support for XEmbed --wid targets, such as
        a GtkSocket's gtk_socket_get_id().
      * (Client API) There is now a file-format property with a symbolic
        name for the file format. In some cases this might be a comma
        separated list of various different extensions due to libavformat
      * (Client API) There is now a mouse command for generating mouse
        events over the video window.
      * (Client API) There is now a partially-seekable property that
        indicates whether a file is only considered seekable because of the
        stream cache, but would not be seekable otherwise (e.g. realtime
        stream, or HTTP with no resume support). Small relative seeks may
        be fine, but larger seeks will likely fail.
      * (Client API) There is now an MPV_EVENT_QUEUE_OVERFLOW event that is
        posted whenever events have to be dropped because the queue is
        full. No further events are posted until the
        MPV_EVENT_QUEUE_OVERFLOW is consumed to avoid duplicated posting.
      * (Client API) There is now a helper mpv_wait_async_requests()
        function that blocks until all known async requests have completed.
        (bug #1542)
      * (Client API) There is now a detected-hwdec property that returns
        the detected hardware decoder when one is successfully opened. This
        probably only returns a valid value after playback has started.
      * (Client API) There are now audio_add, audio_remove and audio_reload
        counterparts to the equivalent sub_ commands for handling external
        audio files.
