Fast Video Cataloger 4.3x adds MadVR support

New Fast video cataloger version

Fast Video Cataloger 4.3 is now ready for download from http://videocataloger.com/download/
This is a free upgrade for all Fast video cataloger customers, use the same key as in previous versions.

Improvements to the integrated video player

In this version we have made several improvements to the integrated video player.

We have added support for MadVR, a GPU based video renderer that basically uses your graphics card to improve video quality. MadVR will be used if the video player preferences in Fast Video Cataloger is set to “Best” or “Direct with MadVR”. MadVR is not included with the installer but you can download it for free from their web site

We have fixed issues with videos that failed to play with sound. We have also added an option to force video to ignore the sound track. If you don’t want/need sound it will make starting the video a bit quicker. Another advantage is that issues with the sound stream will not cause video playback or seek problems.

And we have improved the stability of the video player and managed to get rid of a few cases of videos that could cause the program to freeze.

Other improvements and features

When indexing videos the program will now look for nfo xml files and if one is found it will take tags (keywords), plot (description) and title from the nfo xml file for each video and add that automatically to your catalog.

Some reported issues where the layout was not saved correctly have been fixed.

Fixed rare out of memory issue due to fragmentation, for some reason this seemed to be more common in Asian versions of Windows.

And… lots and lots of other fixes and improvements.

We have already started work on the next version, stay tuned. As always we welcome feedback or ideas on how to improve the software.
