Unread post Current status of QTSource
Hi,

I'm new to this forum and I'm just wondering about the status of QTSource.dll for AviSynth. Is it still being developed?
Normally I would use FFMS2 in AviSynth but ffmpeg does not read QT-reference files very well. Your plugin seem to be the only way to pull it off somehow.
The reason I'm asking is that I would like to implement your plugin into my free FFAStrans (http://www.ffastrans.com) project but I'm worried that the plugin will be outdated if it's not being "looked after". E.g., Will you ever make it AviSynth 2.6 aware?

I'm not sure what you mean by 2.60 aware. I'm currently using it with v2.60, build March 31 2015.

But no, I have not touched the source code in years. Quicktime is a piece of crap and I avoid it whenever possible. Apple even stopped updating the Quictime SDK for Windows years and years ago. There are definitely some bugs in QTSource, though, but, for the most part, those happen when trying to decode Mpeg4 ASP or h264 streams and I just use FFMpegSource for all of those.

I just wanted to know if there was any caveats by using you plugin with AviSynth 2.6. But I agree, QT is bad but someone is still using QT reference files and I want my program to be able to cope with it. And thanks to your plugin it's sort of doable :? :)

Thanks for answering! :D

BTW: I'm using QTSource built 22.13.2013. Is that the preferred build even though it's not "official" or is the 28.05.2011 build still the one to use?

About the best I can say about the build is I'm using the 22.12.2013 version.
