    James Redfox Development Team Staff Member beta - 16/01/2017
    * Change: MediaInfo estimator improved
    * Fix: Built in estimator was enabled for file playback by default. beta - 22/12/2016
    * Fix: MediaInfo estimator treated audio files as video files beta - 21/12/2016
    * New: Retired the old Direct Show framerate estimator for file playback
    - MediaInfo.dll ( is used instead
    - Using the built-in estimator is no longer recommended for file playback
    - Using the built-in estimator is no longer the default for file playback
    - Windows 9x is no longer supported. May it rest in peace.
    * New: Framerate cache was actually quite unusable.
    The behavior is changed:
    - default framerate will no longer stored in cache
    - setting a default framerate will not stop automatic detection, automatic
    detection will always override default framerate setting
    - setting a framerate manually during playback will store it in the cache
    - manually setting the framerate to "unknown/automatic" will delete if from the cache
    - a manual framerate in the cache will stop automatic detection of the built-in estimator
    - manually setting the framerate to "unknown" will enable automatic detection of the built-in estimator
    ATTENTION: This is beta software!
    As there are many changes to many parts of ReClock, things might not work right away as expected.

    James, is there any hope that detecting framerate with mediainfo can be optimized somehow?
    It is significantly slower when opening files now (up to 6 seconds before playback starts with certain files) when it used to be pretty much instant with directshow.
    Or can you re-add the directshow estimator as an option, it was working perfectly fine here. Even if mediainfo is kept default, at least the user can select the one that works best for them.
    Thanks for considering.

    Which (type of) files?
    Are you sure the directshow estimator really did anything useful? In my tests it only worked on (some) .avi files. Pretty uncommon file type these days. Maybe you used the built-in estimator without knowing?

    I'm talking about 1080p matroska files.
    Yes I'm sure it's the directshow estimator taking care of them because I disabled the built-in estimator.
    Here are the results:
    ReClock, Estimators: Dshow enabled | built-in disabled. Opening (this series of) .mkv takes around 1-2 seconds.
    ReClock, Estimators: Mediainfo enabled | built-in disabled. Opening same series of mkv takes 6~ seconds.
    I'm using the exact same filter chain for both tests (LAV splitter source).
    So yes if you could, please re-implement the Dshow estimator (even if Mediainfo is set as default).
