Hauppauge Capture Release Notes

Hauppauge Capture version 38259 Release Notes

  • Disables Hardware acceleration by default on PCs running Windows 10 2004, as this Windows update has issues with Hardware acceleration on some graphics cards
  • Added check for Cortana to all encoder types (UI message needs updating still, but Graph will send the different message now)
  • Now showing Cortana message on all products not just USB Live 2.
  • Added a check if Cortana is using the USB Live 2 device and show a warning why the card cannot start (and how to fix)
  • Fixed an issue where the resolution information wasn't shown when changing Video Input
  • Added check when goingto use the Timing Info that it's not just null but actually has some data in it other then 0,0
  • Adding warning message when trying to stream from an interlaced source, that streaming is not possible
  • Correctly showing 30fps or 25fps for interlaced sources
  • Fixed issue that files recorded outside of Hauppauge Capture couldn't be edited.
  • Fixed issue that the duration of added adding files that weren't recorded in Hauppauge Capture showed the incorrect duration in the recording list.
  • Added warning that MP4 files can't be edited in Hauppauge Capture when playing them in the edit tab.
  • Fixed an issue where the resolution information wasn't shown when changing Video Input
  • Allowing installation on non HD PVR style products (where customer has another WinTV product installed as well as a HD PVR style product). It will just assume you have a HD PVR 2 GE Plus for now and install the required components for this. VID/PID based model detection will be added for the next release.

Hauppauge Capture version 38155 Release Notes

  • Updated HCWI2C32.DLL. Fixes an issue where certain 3rd party software could cause setup to take a very long time to complete product detection. For instance if VMix application was installed. It also speeds up detection/non detection.
  • Fixed issue playing videos over an hour in side where the slider would dissapear off the screen
  • Fixed an issue cutting videos, the reported duration could end up as 6 seconds on certain recordings.

Hauppauge Capture version 38134 Release Notes

General improvements:

  • Added Facebook streaming to the StreamEez tab
  • Added warning about the Windows 10 Camera Privacy setting if the Capture filter can't be found (previously just the installer would warn about this, but products without Hauppauge EEPROM could miss this check)
  • Hiding the Export to MP4 option if an analog product (USB-Live2 and ImpactVCB) is connected, not just if false was set by the installer
  • Error message box made taller to fit Camera Privacy message
  • Fixes an issue detecting the HD PVR Pro 60 in rare cases
  • Uploading recordings to YouTube no longer shows this app is Unverified
  • Cosmetic fixes
  • Adding extra logging around detecting Analog products (USB Live 2 / Impact VCBe)
  • Fixed an issue with extra p at end of scaling resolution and an extra p30 fps when auto scaler was off and no scaling applied.

StreamEez tab:

  • Adds Facebook Live streaming in the StreamEez tab
  • Audio mixer settings are stored and applied correctly during streaming
  • Setting the NIC, since auto inside the RTMP streaming filter does not select the correct Adapater.
  • Forcing an update of the current network adapter when starting Streaming. If you had changed network adapter while Hauppauge Capture was open (say plugged in your iPhone to charge with Hotspot on, or removed your phone and therefore reverted to Wifi) and hadn't changed the Streaming service, it would use the details of the previous network adapter.
  • Reverted target Framework to 4.0 from 4.5 in SimpleStream
  • Setting Network Interface on RTMP filter always, not just if not Hauppauge Capture
  • Logging adapter name to debug VMware specific issue
  • Not setting the desired NIC, since the app doesn't expose a control to choose. This leads to streaming not working if you have multiple NIC's in a PC.
  • Fixed an isssue getting the Server URL and Stream Key from the registry in Hauppauge Capture
  • Fixed an issue that non Facebook streaming would fail because the URL was no longer automatically prefixed with rtmp://
  • Fixed an issue during streaming where the Mic volume wasn't restored when unmuting the mic.
  • Storing StreamEez Mic and Game and PC Audio Volume settings
  • Streaming To URL font reduced in size so URL fits on screen
  • Storing Mute Status of Mic streamingPage mute button
  • Added missing p to the streaming resolution in streamEez
  • Added missing p and frame rate to streaming resolution when Auto Scaler is turned off.
  • Currently the Audio mixer values are stored the same between tabs, so changes made to your Mic setup in Capture are used for streaming and vice versa
  • Saving the status of the TS/MP4/M2TS recording choice to config.xml when changed rather than when app is closed, to help with a reported issue that the choice wasn't been stored for a customer
  • Added support for detecting a HD PVR Pro 60 even when Windows has incorrectly enumerated it's display name as "USB Video Device"
  • Disabled online check for updates (No updates would be returned, but saving the time checking)
  • Fixed issue switching between different streaming services and showing the right text/boxes.
  • Checking Facebook Server and Stream Key entries and showing link where to obtain these.

Edit tab updates:

  • Add SkipFrame buttons (currently hidden) - this will change into Next I-Frame button.
  • Up/Down keyboard buttons skip forward/back 1 second in edit tab
  • Left/Right keyboard buttons skip forward/back 1 frame in edit tab (feature not yet working)
  • Ignoring timing info when cutting, cutting at the point the user chose (timing info was only accurate to 1 second)
  • Fixed an issue where the new accuracy in cutting a file was ignored and the cut was only made to the nearest second.
  • Skipping one frame button now skips 17ms (will add calculating this based on source frame rate for next build).
  • N.B. The decoder doesn't seem to update the preview window when using the frame button, but the cut is performed at the correct place (as accurately as we are able to)
  • Added skip by frame button (currently hard coded to skip 2ms, but will be set to the appropriate time based on frame rate). N.B. This isn't 100% accurate as we are still seeking by bytes in the file, so if you have a time coded source video, you may find it not as accurate as Adobe Premiere for instance, but far better than the current 1 second accuracy.
  • All functions converted from expecting seconds to milliseconds
  • No longer wait 800ms between UI updates when dragging the timeline so you can now quite acccurately drag the slider (please check this doesn't cause a massive CPU increase on low end PC's, but it seems absolutely fine here)
  • Forcing Edit volume and mute status to save to config.xml when changed, otherwise it could be forgotten.
  • Editor and playback now supports cuts to the nearest msec
  • Recording List has a msec value shown.
  • Playback of recordings shows msec

Hauppauge Capture version 37142 Release Notes

  • Shows audio status next to video status: input audio format and output audio format
  • Audio mixer now has an 'Off' setting, so that 5.1 channel audio can be recorded on HD PVR 2 models which support 5.1 channel audio
  • On HD PVR 2, in the Advanced menu, 'HDMI Passthrough EDID' now has three settings: use HD PVR 2, Use TV monitor, Merge TV monitor and HD PVR 2. The default is 'Merge TV monitor and HD PVR 2'. This means the EDID settings presented to the video source will only be the ones supported by both the TV monitor and the HD PVR 2. For example, if your HD PVR 2 can support 5.1 channel audio but your TV monitor cannot, your HD PVR 2 will turn off EDID for 5.1 channel audio.

  • Fixed MPEG-1 TS Audio button was hidden
  • Fixed issue where HD PVR 2 Video Encoder Latency button wasn't checked.
  • Automatically detecting when the audio format changes (e.g. Stereo to AC3 (Dolby Digital) and vice-versa). Previously the app would start in whichever mode was detected at startup, so if the source was set to AC3 (Dolby Digital) after the app was started, or the device turned on after the app was started, you would hear no audio until the app was restarted.
