After 3 months since the last stable build, we decided to release 1.6.6. This release has many bugfixes and a few new features. Also, the binaries are digitally signed so you can easily verify their integrity.
Highlights of this release:
Uncompressed RAR files can now be played directly in MPC-HC, drag any .rar or part file (.r00, .r01, etc.) into the player to play it (thanks to RARFileSource)
The Subtitle menu now shows all available subtitle tracks including the tracks offered by the splitter
“Now playing” information can now be sent to Skype’s mood message, MSN support has been removed
VSync is now turned off by default due to playback issues, if you have Aero on you already have VSync and will not notice the difference
The hotkeys related to D3D Fullscreen and Frame Time Correction have changed to avoid accidental activation
The external filter list has been split for the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the player, your current filter list will automatically be corrected
Also besides the usual localization updates a new Romanian localization has been added. We’d like to thank our translators for keeping MPC-HC accessible to our non-English users.
