Improvements to TS based protocols, Apple device support fixed We've improved our TS based protocols (TS/HLS), they should perform a lot better than before. Apple products will now properly display streams again.

MP4 input now supports b-frames This fixes problems with jittery video. You may have to delete the auto-generated dtsh files for this fix to activate.

MistServer is now completely free of external dependencies We've removed our dependency on OpenSSL, which was our last remaining external dependency.

Support for Elemental encoded files MistServer now supports the non-conforming MP4 files generated by Elemental's encoders. If you still encounter any problems please contact us

Folder support interface bugfix The management Interface will now properly display files found in only the selected folder instead of the selected folder and the parent folder.

Default buffer size has been increased to 50 seconds, and the default segment size decreased to 5 seconds This will cause HLS output to work better when using the default configuration for live streaming.

Improved HLS playback compatibility for very short and/or low bit rate files Very short files or files with a very low bit rate will now play correctly.
