Stable

9/27/2022

8.95.0

Changed

  • The formerly experimental transmuxer is now considered stable and used by default, hence the default value of TweaksConfig.experimental_transmuxing now changed from false to true. For the time being, it is possible to switch back to the legacy transmuxer by setting this flag to false. Included are various bug fixes and experimental support for CEA-708 closed captions via TweaksConfig.parse_cea_708_caption.

Removed

  • Support for HLS MPEG-TS streams with multiple audio tracks muxed into the same segment. The player is now always defaulting to the first audio track. Note: This legacy feature was removed in the new transmuxer implementation but is still supported when using the legacy transmuxer.

Fixed

  • Thumbnails not appearing in DASH streams without [email protected]
  • Player unexpectedly stalling at discontinuity boundary when playing HLS SSAI streams on Tizen even though buffer is available
  • Memory leak when using TweaksConfig.native_hls_parsing in Safari 15+ with live streams that have a growing DVR window
  • Memory leaks caused by leftover performance marks
  • Cannot read property 'isPaused' of null and Cannot read property 'seekingOrTimeshifting' of null TypeErrors
  • Seeking after player.load() loading segments from the beginning instead of the seek target
  • getDroppedVideoFrames() always returning 0 on Firefox
  • Mid-playback stalls with multi period/discontinuity streams on TVs
