1.2.6.1 beta 2019-10-02

  • fix: handling of subtitles in 3D SBS/TAB mode (caused crash and/or invisible subtitles)
    a note on 3D subtitles in MKV-SBS: various players require different formats
    due to the absence of any kind of specification, getting proper display is a matter
    of luck. If you notice incorrect subtitle display, please contact us with details, so
    we can support all players at some point.
  • workaround: movies with incorrect language tags in PMT, regenerate PMT with correct values
  • fix: possible crash when analyzing AVC streams
  • fix: scaling of black portions in complex subtitles
  • fix: don’t suppress IG subpaths with incorrectly identically-labeled languages
