|DigaPlayerAVControl is a free add-on for DBM 3.x and 4.x to enable a video player inside the meta data mask or grid view by pressing the middle mouse button.
To allow faster support for new video formats like AVC-I we decided to extend our MCL (Media Component Library) to not only support these new formats but also being able working as a player in DBM.
Therefore it is necessary to make a major change in DBM 4.x to switch from DigaPlayerAVControl to the new MCL Player.
For our customers this means that updating DBM 4.x to Release 2010.2 or newer will require to uninstall DigaPlayerAVControl and install MCL Player. MCL Player will come with an own setup which will assist you during the installation.
The availability of MCL Player will be announced on our support website and in our support newsletter.
To use MCL Player with DBM requires a version of DBM 4.x which comes with full support of the new MCL Player.
Security hint: We found out that DBM build 4.1.7051.0 could cause crashes when trying to access MXF D10 video elements. This was also reported by customers. At the moment we are investigating the problem. In the meanwhile we strongly recommend to downgrade DBM to build 7048 whenever it is used in a video environment which requires work with MXF files and DigaPlayerAVControl.
Other modules like DigaClipPlayer are not affected!
Please note that the video player of DBM is always included in the license of DBM. For HD you would need a DBM 4.x license. There are no additional costs to switch from DigaPlayerAVControl to MCL Player. For MXF support a MXF license is required. For XDCAM HD support an optional license for DBM 4.1 is required.
