    Known issues

    • ๐Ÿš€ Only non-text subtitles (e.g. BluRay/DVD-style PGS) are supported in this release.
    • Experimental features are what it says on the tin. Stability and other issues are expected.


    ๐Ÿš€ As an initial release, NymphCast v0.1 is primarily focused on the core functionality of streaming media content, whether from a (HTTP/RTSP) URL, or a NymphCast Client or MediaServer instance.

    ๐Ÿ‘Œ Supported media formats are those which are supported by the used ffmpeg (LibAV) libraries. This includes all common types and many less common ones. Playback performance is limited by the used hardware.

    ๐Ÿš€ The current NymphCast development process target is a v1.0 release, with each subsequent minor (0.x) release intended to add new features. Although care is taken to minimise the number of breaking changes between releases, long-term stability is not expected until v1.0.
