Fast Video Cataloger 3.82 released

I have just uploaded version 3.82 of Fast video cataloger.

You can download this version from the download page at http://videocataloger.com/download/

If you are a customer you should have already gotten an email earlier this week about the new version, a free update for all customers as usuall.

This upgrade, from the previous 3.64 release, contains a whole lot of changes behind the scenes. We have refactored the whole backend of the video catalog system in preparation for future planned features. We have also done an extensive pass on performance so more of the program is executed in parallell on multiple threads. If you have a good computer you should notice that the program is more responsive now, most systems should now be limited by disk I/O speed.

On to the details…

We have added a “connect” dialog that will allow you to connect to a Fast video cataloger server. Please note that this server is stil in beta testing and only available upon request.

We have fixed screen alignment issues in fullscreen mode on Windows 8.1 machines with high dpi screens.

We have added an option to let the program recognized any type as a video or photo files as specified in the preferences. Note that you obviously need to have the correct codecs installed that supports the file extension.

We have added a few more new recognized video file types; ts, tr, trp

Finally we made some small tweaks to the user interface. If you adjust the zoom factor it will snap to make sure you can easily use the full width of the window. I also added a subtle fade to the thumbnails and rewrote population of the thumbnail window image by image so we can display them quicker than before.

New version soon…

Its been close to 5 months now since we did the latest update to Fast video cataloger. That is quite a while but I can assure you the Fast video cataloger software is still very much alive. We have just finished the testing of the lastest version and you can expect it to be uploaded this week to the site. As usual if you bought the software this is going to be a free update and I will send an email once it is available to be downloaded.
