Dashcam Viewer v3.4.0 Released for Mac and Windows

Dashcam Viewer v3.4.0 was released today for both Mac and Windows with a bevy of new features and bug fixes:

General Improvements:

  • Introduced Dashcam Viewer PRO for Mac and Windows.The Pro versions adds more capabilities, including GoPro HERO support and OpenStreetMaps, and increased number of Geotags. Differences between the Free, Standard, and Pro versions are shown below.

Key differences between Free, Standard and PRO

The new Pro version is $75 and an upgrade path from Standard to Pro is available.

  • Added new Audio Event Detection capability.

    Important events in the video series are often characterized by sudden changes in volume. For example, the sound of a collision or the sound of a horn can be heard against the normal driving noise background. Dashcam Viewer’s Audio Event Detection can assist in locating key sound events in a series of videos.

Audio Event Detection widgets

Audio events will appear as little squares along the graph time axis. You can quickly jump to an event by using the blue forward and back buttons. The detection algorithm sensitivity can be varied by increasing or decreasing the sensitivity control from 1 to 10. As the control value is decreased, more squares will appear. Red squares indicate the most significant events, yellow less significant, and green squares are the least significant events. The detection algorithm is applied independently to each video so red squares in one video may not have the same event significance as those in a different video.

Sudden sound events do not need to be loud to be detected by the algorithm. The sound of a car blinker or a sudden voice can stand out against the background if the background is quiet enough. This could be either desirable or undesirable depending on what the user is looking for in the audio track. Event detection algorithm will continue to be refined based on user feedback.

  • [Windows] Added new option to control whether Map, Dashboard, Graph, and Control Center windows are hidden when DCV is put in background.
  • [Windows] Dashcam Viewer is now a 32-bit application for increased compatibility with users’ systems.

Bug Fixes:

  • [Windows] Fixed bug in street address lookup when creating a geotag. The request for street address was failing due to the OpenSSL DLLs not being present in the app directory.
  • [Windows] Fixed bug in which Check for New Version didn’t work (same issue as above).
  • [Windows] Fixed the issue where the video window would occasionally become black until the video was un-paused.
  • [Windows] Fixed bug in window export to JPG/PNG toolbar function that would produce black images.
  • Fixed bug in Garmin 45 reader that resulted in incorrect lat/lon values.
  • Fixed occasional bug in timeline when videos are enabled/disabled.
  • Fixed issue in which GPS data in Transcend DrivePro 230 videos of 5-minutes would not be found. This is a temporary fix.
  • Embedded subtitle formats: No longer require the videos to have uppercase .MOV or .MP4 extensions.

Dashcam Viewer v3.3.0 Released for Mac and Windows

Dashcam Viewer v3.3.0 was released today for both Mac and Windows. This new version has the following enhancements:

New Camera Supports:

  • Added support for DOD LS475W dashcam
  • Added support for CAMDII K2S dashcam

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed bug in speed calculation for WheelWitness HD Pro.
  • Improved algorithm for pairing front/rear videos of INNOVV K2 w/0.61 firmware.
  • Fixed bug that could lead to a crash if a geotag was created on a rear video but was invoked when DCV was playing the front video. Affected 2-channel dashcams only.
  • Fixed bug that would invoke the Enter Geotag Title input dialog when a geotag file was imported or a geotag was deleted. This bug was introduced in v3.2.9.
  • AutoVox X2 and JADO d860 only: I haven’t been able to crack how the sign of the longitude is encoded in the data stream. So as a workaround for now, the longitude value is interpreted as positive every other time DCV is started and negative every other time it’s started. So if your position is incorrect on the map, just quit and restart DCV and it will be ok. I will remove this kludge once the encoding scheme has been cracked.
