Changes made in DirectX 9.0 has the potential to affect two configurations:
1) Print to tape using a DVCPro device with a non-MS DV encoder may result in audio dropouts or complete loss of audio.
2) Decoding of a live or file-based DV stream with the PAL bit erroneously set in some frames may cause decoding to stutter or halt completely.
Modifications for these issues are as follows:
1) Alter DV Multiplexer to set SPEED field value in AAUX source pack to 1.0 when DV encoder does not set a valid value.
2) Change to buffer size checking in DV Decoder to accept non-standard assertion of the PAL bit.
Note: The English hotfix package (ENU) may be deployed on any language installation of the supported operating systems.
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000 Service Pack 3, Windows 2000 Service Pack 4, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP
This hotfix is supported on the operating systems listed above when DirectX 9.0, 9.0a, or 9.0b is installed.
