I actually like the 1.54 build, changes like showing the buffer in MB, or the new BRAVIA EX icon are certainly welcome. But the build still suffers from some bugs which have been haunting most previous builds too. Such as;
- If the option "Remux with tsMuxeR when possible" is selected and Mencoder is set as first priority in the engine list, when Mencoder triggers tsMuxeR to kick in and start muxing instead of transcoding, then the STATUS BAR at the bottom of the Status tab still displays Mencoder doing the job. The status bar should indicate the actual/correct engine, to my opinion in this case displaying tsMuxeR has instead taken over.
Also specific to this new build, don't know about other users, but enabling the new "Use LPCM for audio" distorts totally my image with random colored little mosaics and no audio when using Mencoder, while using tsMuxeR I do get decent video but without any sound. I have "TranscodeAudio=LPCM" in my renderer conf file, and 0 for bandwidth limit, eventhough monitoring the bandwidth I did not see any sudden higher jump to what's normal.
I look forward for this issues being addressed in the next release.
