• Fix no thumbnails mode
• DRM files detection
• MediaInfo64 / Better divx, avi/ac3, wmv support, also Skip/Force transcode management

changelog between r392 and r381:

• Major change: Could introduce regression issues, streaming/transcoding detection issues
• MediaInfo support by default for PS3/XBOX, ongoing work on other renderers:
• Faster XMB navigation (faster parsing, plus file list appears before thumbnails generation)
• Proper auto detection of non supported files (PS3: Mpeg w/ DTS, Qpel/Gmc/H264 AVI files, Apple Lossless AAC files, 6 channels WMV, etc.)
• OS X: Dropped official support for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and Intel processors without 64bit support (anything older then Core 2)

• DVD ISO muxing enabled by default + DTS support (need some tests ). It's an option in the transcode settings panel
• New Mplayer build font cache should build if needed at start
• Definitive removal of the tsmuxer mpeg parser (slow and now unnecessary with recent ffmpeg builds)
• New option to avoid music files resampling
• Better support for simultaneous usage with several ps3s/renderers (need tests as well)

you can stream mkv files. it transcodes the mkv files into a format the ps3 understands while it streams. This does cause problems with fast forward and rewind, i often transcode the file with mkv2vob before streaming if i want to be able to do this.

v1.20.410 isn't an official update yet so when installed it will still show 1.20.409 in the program title bar.

Changelog for this version is: Fixed DTSWAV support on ps3 and FLAC 24bits/96kHz with Video
