Software update: LAV Filters 0.73

Version 0.72 of the LAV Filters has been released. The LAV Filters are a collection of open-source DirectShow filters that allow the most common formats of audio and video to be played in a media player of your choice. It is part of, among others, the K-Lite Codec Pack and the Combined Community Codec Pack. There are also media players, such as Media Player Classic – Home Cinema and VLC Media Player which already have it on board as standard. In this edition the following changes and improvements have been made:

LAV Splitter

  • Fanged: Properly marked the packet allocator as providing read-only packets, to avoid crashes with in-place transform filters

LAV Video

  • NEW: Support for AV1 decoding using libaom
  • Changed: Enabled VP9 hardware acceleration by default
  • Fixed: The aspect ratio of certain WMV / VC- 1 files was not being properly respected in the WMV9 MFT decoder
