New Release: 3.0.0 Beta 4
#1
Good Afternoon,

Here is a new build with a fix for the corrupted taskbar icons in Windows 10.
Any users who are currently experiencing this problem should update to Beta 4, 
then clear the Windows Thumbnail Cache, and finally restart Explorer or Reboot their computer.

And many Thanks to all the translators so far. You've all done a great job
adding new and updating existing localizations.

Enjoy the new release! ;)

Is it possible to use ICC (Intel Compiler) for some or the whole package? Or use GCC and create a optimized version only for newer Intel CPUs with every optimization maxed out?

If I remember correctly ICC is not free to use, and I've read that the speed gained by using it comes at the cost of instability.
For the same reasons I've yet to try it. GCC always seemed like the better option.

As for creating optimized builds for newer intel CPUs, I honestly haven't given it much thought. 
I simply don't have the time or setup, to distribute multiple editions of Icaros, so I'm currently trying to support as many
systems as possible, while still keeping everything as optimized as possible.

I'm not an expert on this field though, so I'm always open to suggestions. ;)

Sorry, my English is not the best...
Just trying 3.0.0 Beta 4 and my favourite thumbnails still grey - it is the HEVC codec in a .ts

I have many different TV recordings here, also downloaded or my own test samples. Most of them are in TS which may contain lots of different video formats such as:
MPEG-2, H.264, VC-1, HEVC ...
4K HEVC is the new one, the video res. is 3840*2160 mostly 10-bit.

Icaros is able to "read" HEVC 3840*2160 well if it is in a MKV container - shows thumbnails.
But unfotunately not if it is in a TS.

Here are 2 sample links so you may try by yourself. The "AstraUHD" is the TS, the "BBB-credits" the MKV:

Finally a wish to further Icaros versions, I would like most if Icaros could not only have options to choose by suffixes (MP4/MOV/TS...) but also by codec (MPEG2, H.264, HEVC ...) what it handles or what not.
The reason is simple - all my H.264 .ts samples show other thumbnails now because Icaros choosing earlier or later frames to show then Windows 7-10.
So I would like to exclude just H.264 in Icaros.

Thank you for listening! Smile

p.s.

you could also download from here:
http://www.demo-uhd3d.com/categorie.php?tag=hevc

I have some of them and they all do show grey thumbnails:
Samsung SUHD - Colorful Food
Samsung - 7 Wonders of the World : China
...

But there are 2 exceptions:
Samsung - 7 Wonders of the World : Brazil
Samsung UHD : Ride on Board

These 2 show picture-thumbnails, no idea why. In Mediainfo I could not find significant differences.
