A new alpha release that contains important fixes for the Western Digital TV HD device.
A direct IO mode was added that disables any caching in a temp file and thus improves the performance on devices with a very slow IO (like the WD TV HD or other flash based drives). This means that it comes down to the performance of the internet connection. To watch a 720p trailer live you need at least 6Mbit downstream. For 1080p 10 to 12Mbit are better.
Further improvements are more on the inside like source code cleanup and groundwork for other IO modes that are optimized for 1080p playback on slower connections.
