Version 1.4b3 is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard).
You can now set the default recording format (Codec) in the General Preferences, as the previous method was too hidden.
In the previous betas it could happen that BoinxTV did not actually write a file but fail silently.Download it from the BoinxTV Beta page.
For all the new features see the full release notes.
Version 1.4b3 - Full and Sponsored Edition - September 10nd, 2009
Please understand that beta releases are unfinished software, which are still under development and not yet fully tested! While we have used these releases successfully, your mileage may vary. Export may still be flakey, for example. After installing this update you can re‐download the latest official release any time from the Boinx Software web site.
BoinxTV version 1.4 introduces lots of behind–the–scenes changes that will yield great new features. The immediate benefit is that saving of recorded movies is now almost instantaneous, you no longer need to wait several minutes after finishing a recording.
- You can now set the default recording format (Codec) in the General Preferences, as the previous method was too hidden.
- In the previous betas it could happen that BoinxTV did not actually write a file but fail silently.
- If saving the recorded movie fails you now at least get a reasonable error message.
- The output preview no longer displays the "Engine Paused" message when being paused, only the pause button is highlighted and the layer preview shows a message.
- Exports from recordings with any MPEG-4 based codec used to be all white in b2.
- Some code optimizations for G5 processors. Please report if you are actually using BoinxTV on a G5. Coincidentally, BoinxTV should no longer start at all on PPC G4.
- Resolved a few more mostly Snow Leopard related issues.
