Trevor's Amiga Blog: First volume finished, beta version of DvPlayer in test
After more than 10 months Trevor Dickinson from A-EON Technology has written an entry in his Trevor's Amiga Blog again.

A large part of it is his report about the work on the two volume book 'From Vultures to Vampires' about the Amiga history, which is to be written by him and David Pleasance, starting with the takeover of the Commodore rights by ESCOM. He says the first volume has been completed and is now being proofread.

In a second section he gives a brief history of the movie player 'DvPlayer', starting with the first version developed by Stephen Fellner in 2005, through the acquisition of the rights from A-EON Technology (2015) and their work on hardware accelerated video playback support for the A-EON RadeonHD v2 driver using the graphics card's own GPU, to the creation of a new beta version that Hans der Ruiter has developed and is currently testing.

The new version allows high-resolution video files to be played either in full-screen mode or in scalable windows that can be resized during playback. To that end, he uploaded a screenshot to his blog page showing DvPlayer playing an HD and a 1080p video in parallel on an AmigaOne X5000/40. Matthew Leaman would have informed him that, if all went well, the new version would be released in the AmiStore next month. (dr) (Translation: (bb)
