New Release 14.12

In addition to little fixes here and there, this version has a new filter menu to prevent the menus from getting too full as we add more.

Now, you can flag filters as favorites. The default list upon opening the menu is your favorites. Click the other icons to view all filters of that type. In addition, when GPU processing is enabled, you can use CPU-based video filters in addition to the GPU filters. We only show the CPU filters that are not redundant with their GPU counterpart. We only allow you to place CPU video filters after all GPU filters, but you can still reorder within those groups. This is done mainly for performance reasons - to prevent the video from having to go back and forth between CPU and GPU memory.

Version 14.12 re-release

We recently discovered that versions 14.09 - 14.12 were failing to launch on systems running OS X 10.8 and older. In the course of fixing it, we believe the problem could affect more than just those versions of OS X - a Linux user reported a similar problem. Also, we noticed a regression on Windows with the ability to drag-n-drop files onto the player window after a filter using on-video controls (VUI) had been used at least once during the session. Therefore, a new 14.12.06 build of the 14.12 release is available for download to address these problems.
