Fresh from the VidBlaster Forum...

Several improvements to the Player and Recorder modules make this beta release of VidBlaster perform much better on underpowered machines (favor video frame over audio dropping). Other changes include better performance of the player module, new additions to the API and other minor changes & bug fixes.


Here's a brief overview of the most important changes since the last version:

Player: increased responsiveness of display, time label & progress bar when seeking.
