Dashcam Viewer v3.6.3 Released for Mac and Windows

Dashcam Viewer v3.6.3 was released today for both Mac and Windows with the following new improvements:

New Features: 

  • Implemented new GPS Data Cache system, which speeds loading of video files by a factor of 100 or more the next time the files are loaded. The Free and Standard versions cache up to 1,000 files and the version caches up to 10,000 files. Once the limit is reached, the oldest files in the cache will be deleted to make room for the newer ones being loaded. This feature applies to dashcams that embed their GPS data in the video file itself. By default this feature is enabled, but it can be disabled in the Advanced Preferences.

Bug Fixes:

  • Improved the behavior of the Main Window so that it retains its size and position between program runs.
  • Fixed minor bug in Trip gap time calculation if gap > 1 day.

Dashcam Viewer v3.5.2 Released for Mac and Windows

Dashcam Viewer v3.5.2 was released today for both Mac and Windows with the following improvements and bug fixes:

General Improvements:

  • Implemented workaround to fix single-point GPS ‘spikes’ seen in data stream of some dashcam models. These are points that are out-of-scope from their neighbors. If a point is more than 5 km apart from its neighbors, then the point is discarded and replaced with an interpolated point.

Version 3.5.2 reduces and/or eliminates random data spikes seen in some dashcam models’ GPS data. Instances where two or more consecutive points are out-of-scope are not massaged. In these cases the user should report the problem to the dashcam manufacturer.

  • Improved error reporting of GPS data anomalies in Control Center window. Added more detail in error messages. If a wrench icon is displayed next to the video name, hover the mouse over the icon to reveal the errors and error codes encountered. Previously, only a single error message was displayed.
  • Added support for parking mode videos from Viofo A129 Pro Duo with firmware “A129Pro: V2.0 Build: 20200710”.
  • [Windows] Dashcam Viewer is now distributed with the LGPL versions of ffmpeg and ffprobe. Previously the GPL version slipped into the build. Users should replace the LGPL versions with the GPL versions for best performance and features. Instructions for doing this are in the Users Manual.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed crash if user has no videos loaded and clicks the “Enable All” button in the Trips list.
  • When exporting a PiP clip, the ffmpeg LGPL warning message is now brought to front instead of hidden behind the Export Options window.

New Features:

  • Added Trip List. When videos are first loaded, Dashcam Viewer now bins them into “trips” and lists them in a new Control Center window tab. By default, a trip is defined as a contiguous set of 1 or more videos with no breaks of greater than 1 minute. Videos constituting a trip can be shown/hidden. Statistics are computed for each trip such as beginning date/time, the duration of the trip, the amount of gap time between trips, and the number of videos in a trip. Double-click a trip to start viewing its videos. Trip list items are color-coded based on trip length. PRO users can re-generate the trip list with a user-defined gap-time, rather than the 1-minute default.
