change log (2018-10-15 – 2.10.31):

  • NOTE: Use of MXFGCGenericEssenceMultipleMappings in AS-02 files is not defined by standards and will soon be withdrawn from this library. If you would like to experience this change now, define the macro ASDCP_GCMULTI_PATCH
  • Removed PIMD support (unused prototype)
  • Returned the DataEssenceCoding UL version byte to “5″ in Atmos files
  • Fixed ColorPrimaries_ACES UL version byte
  • Added “FSKSync” audio channel label to the MCA label generator
  • SMPTE RDD 45 requires a minimum BER encoding length of five (5) bytes for Content Element packets. The Write_EKLV_Packet() API has been modified to allow the specification of this value. All existing wrapping modules have been changed to conform to the new API, and all continue to use four (4) as the minimum BER encoding length. Write_EKLV_Packet() will continue to generate BER encodings with a length greater than the specified minimum for payloads that are larger than values encoded using the specified minimum.

change log:
2016-05-06 – bug fixes, 2.5.14

  • Release 2.5.12 caused two problems with Atoms and DTS-X wrapping that are
    addressed by this release. The UL values that were changed to correct the
    DCData (ST 429-14) implementation had two unintended side-effects:
    1. v2.5.12 cannot read old DCData (and thus DTS-X) track files
    2. v2.5.12 creates broken Atmos track files (incorrect ULs)
  • The fix for this involved the following changes:
    1. ASDCP::DCData::(MXFReader|MXFWriter) are no longer base classes of
    2. New UL values have been added to carry the original Atoms UL values:
      1. DolbyAtmosDCDataWrappingFrame
      2. DolbyAtmosDCDataEssence
      3. DolbyAtmosDCDataDescriptor
    3. ASDCP::ATMOS::(MXFReader|MXFWriter) have been modified to use the
      DolbyAtmosDCData* UL values.
    4. ASDCP::DCData::MXFReader will parse files having either DCData* or
      DolbyAtmosDCData* UL values.
    5. ASDCP::DCData:: MXFWriter continues to use DCData* UL values from ST
  • Some optional parameters of the MXF metadata packs were being erroneously
    initialized with a value of zero (0), such as GenericPictureEssenceDescriptor
    ::SignalStandard, GenericPictureEssenceDescriptor::SampledXOffset(0), etc.
  • Added higher edit rates (96, 100, 120) to the cinema TimedText_Parser
  • Defined bool ASDCP::UL::operator<(const UL& rhs) const, which is needed to
    carry out the version-insensitive lookup policy when searching for ULs in a
    std::map<> of UL entries.
  • New files: src/ src/CMakeLists.txt
  • Removed filess: AS_DCP_DCData_internal.h

2015-02-19 – PHDR feature, bug fixes, 2.4.9

  • Modified PCMParser and PCMParserList to return partial frame buffers at the end of a WAV input file. This was needed to allow wrapping all samples into an AS-02 audio file (which is clip-wrapped) in the case where the input file has an odd number of samples with respect to the frame buffer size being used. If there is more than one input file the length of the last buffer will be determined by PCMParserList to be the shortest of the input files. Prior to this change, partial samples in an input WAV file have been abandoned (i.e., not written out to the MXF file). As a result, AS-DCP applications will have to decide whether to abandon the partial last frame (usually detected by testing frame_buffer.Size() != frame_buffer.Capacity()) or write it to the MXF file. Programs written to the old API will write the partial frame (i.e., new behavior.) This should not be harmful since the remainder of the buffer is zeroed and the output file will contain one additional edit unit compared to the previous version.
  • asdcp-wrap has been modified to test for the partial buffer and by default will complain and abandon the buffer (i.e., same behavior but with a warning message.) A new command line switch (-g) alters this behavior and writes the buffer to the MXF file (it still warns the user that this condition is present.)
  • as-02-wrap now wraps all samples from the input file to the MXF file. There is no padding, the clip is exactly the set of samples from the input.
  • as-02 unwrap is temporarily restricted to creating wav files that are aligned with the frame buffer size. This means that the output file will be longer than the original WAV input in the case where the input file has an odd number of samples with respect to the frame buffer size being used. The pad samples are zero (silence).
  • Modified CalcFramesFromDurationInSamples() to increment the count by one for the case where the input file has an odd number of samples with respect to the frame buffer size being used (previously it truncated the odd samples.)
  • Fixed ST 429-5 / ST 2067-5 wrapping to increase header space when ancillary resources are present (fixes a bug that caused the header to overflow the allotted space when large numbers of PNG files were present.)
  • Refactored GetXMLDocType() to use the XML parser.
  • Added ParseFirstFromString() method to Kumu::XMLElement
  • Removed Kumu::StringIsXML from the API.
  • Added ASDCP::MXF::RGBALayout type.
  • Added J2CLayout property to JPEG2000PictureSubDescriptor
  • Changed km_token_split() to retain empty elements in the output list.
  • Added PHDR wrapping for AS-02.
  • Added J2CLayout property to the JPEG2000PictureSubDescriptor. This support is preliminary: the Raw data type is being used instead of RGBALayout type, which will be in the next release.

  • Changed some internals to make MXFWriter::OPAtomHeader() work correctly.
  • Split asdcp-test into several different programs to help relieve the impenetrable-list-of-arguments problem. asdcp-wrap, asdcp-unwrap and asdcp-info take the place of asdcp-test’s -c, -x and -i options, respectively. asdcp-util contains the remaining functions. Note that asdcp-test is now DEPRECATED, new functionality and bug fixes will be aimed at the new tools. Also note that some options and calling conventions are different for the new tools as compared to asdcp-test. Please read the synopses and make sure you understand the new idioms.
  • asdcp-wrap has a new argument, -C <UL>, that writes the given UL to the ChannelAssignment item in the WaveAudioDescriptor (only useful when writing PCM essence).

  • Changed Result_t implementation to use int instead of long, which was causing trouble on some 64 bit platforms.
  • Fixed EKLV HMAC. NOTE: Breaks backward compatibility with older Interop files. To validate these files, use asdcplib-1.1.14. This should not cause too much trouble since files with broken and non-broken HMAC have been in the wild for years without issue.
  • Fixed HMAC sequence numbering in encrypted stereoscopic files.
  • Finished stereoscopic test targets in the makefile.
  • Fixed the win32 build, now expects VS2005 compiler by default, use WITH_VC6=1 top get VC6 flags.

KNOWN BUGS: The following issues are known to exist with this version. These bugs will be fixed in the next release (being prepared now).

  • The Win32 build is broken
  • Writing encrypted track files using LS_MXF_SMPTE causes a segfault

change log:
2007.10.22 – Timed Text, Stereoscopic Picture and Bug fixes v.1.2.16

  • Significant API changes have been made. Please read all entries in this changelog to be sure you understand the changes. Also note that some changes have been made to LS_MXF_SMPTE files that are incompatible with earlier releases (e.g., EKLV HMAC). If you are looking for a stable interop release, use v.1.1.14.
  • Fixed RFC 2104 HMAC implementation for LS_MXF_SMPTE only. The broken implementation has been maintained for Interop mode.
  • Added support for draft SMPTE 429-5 Timed Text Track File. This is still waiting for official SMPTE ULs, so do not use it for shipping products. An XML parser is needed to create a Timed Text Track File; Expat is now an optional part of the build. Make with WITH_XML_PARSER=1 to link with Expat. If you do not link with expat, you will get an error when using the TimedText:: DCSubtitleParser class. See also S429-5-cgi.cpp for an example that shows how to serve plaintext MXF file elements directly via HTTP.
  • Added support for draft SMPTE 429-10 Stereoscopic Picture Track File, including the JPEG Interop version. This is still waiting for official SMPTE ULs, so do not use it with LS_MXF_SMPTE for shipping products.
  • Refactored the following files as a side-effect of the above work: AS_DCP_JP2K.cpp AS_DCP_MPEG2.cpp AS_DCP_PCM.cpp AS_DCP_MXF.cpp AS_DCP_internal.h MXF.[h|cpp] MXFTypes.[h|cpp] Metadata.[h|cpp] h__Reader.cpp h__Writer.cpp klvwalk.cpp. WARNING: While significant effort has been extended to make sure that these changes do not affect existing stable file support, users are cautioned to test this release thouroughly.
  • Added a large set of filesystem path manglers to KM_fileio.h. See path-test.cpp for example usage. The path manglers have not yet been tested on win32 platforms (they are currently used only by the Timed Text module.
  • The PathIsFile(), PathIsDirectory() and FileSize() subroutines have been modified to accept const std::string& instead of const char*.
  • Added namespace and parsing support (Expat) to Kumu::XMLElement (currently used only for Timed Text support). Also added some new accessors.
  • Altered MXF::UTF16String to use mbtowc() and wctomb().

  • Fixed a bug in ByteString::Unarchive() that caused the operation to fail when the buffer was smaller than the read (i.e., when Capacity() was called).
  • Added IdentifierList class to KM_util.
  • Changed some Error() messages to Debug() in Wav.cpp
  • Revived jp2k-test.cpp and asdcp-mem-test.cpp (they both had stale #includes).

    files are now fully supported with some TODOs and one major
    exception: LEAD indexes are not supported by the MXF writers
    and interlace images are not yet supported.
  • Added support for MCA labels (ST 428-12) to asdcp-wrap.  Note
    that this project is still in the early stages of interop testing
    so errors are likely present and don’t expect any server to
    understand this feature.
