    missing break

  • Dan Dennedy (06 Jun 24)

    fix still image loaded thru MLT avformat producer These do not necessarily have a predictable format or codec name. I was using AVIF while testing this (no QImage plugin). The maxium integer is used by MLT to represent live or no duration. Another still image format (HEIC) is also 1 fps and max int duration. Much more rare to see a live 1 fps source.

  • Dan Dennedy (06 Jun 24)

    add support for sRGB color transfer This is used at least by many AVIF, and it is supported.

    Prefer MLT.profile() over Mlt::Service::Profile() MLT.profile() uses the global profile which does not need to be freed after use.

    fix Glaxnimate links with Qt libav instead of ours This mainly affected our macOS build using Qt 6.7.1, which is built against FFmpeg for a multimedia backend. But in theory it could affect others that use a similar setup on other OS.
