New great version OpenSloMo 0.9B with an ability to change speed during playback is ready for you!

New big version of replay server OpenSloMo 0.9B is ready for you. It has a lot of improvements, but the most beutiful is an ability to change speed during playback!
Here is a list of all fixes and updates:

1. In early versions of OpenSloMo you had to set speed of an episode and it was fixed during playback. Now you may change speed in any time to make your replays more dynamic and beautiful! Moreover, you can do it by slider or by PITCH_BEND control of your MIDI device. Just set an appropriate control and catch your MIDI signal to have this ability. It will be the same as usual T-Bar control in any slow motion machine. You ask for this function, I made it for you!
2. I added one additional usefull function for your PITCH_BEND. It is named "Rewind Main Slider" and it gives you an ability to set position of your main slider with your MIDI controller's pitch bend. It is very usefull for fast positioning and searching.
3. I have made a lot of fixes for video to not stop too early/lately. Now program do not use internal timers and everything depends on Caspar's playback state.
4. Some of our new users encountered the problem of not seeing video players because of incorrect media path. Now OpenSloMo tries to fix it or gives an error.
5. There were some problems with save Slots removing and double starting of playlist that caused to crash the program. I hava fixed it.
6. Fixed OpenSloMo's working when Caspar was restarted.

As usually you may get the program in the Downloads page.

I'll be glad to see your comments below and I would appreciate if you share OpenSloMo to your friends, collegues and any contacts who may be interested in using it! This project is not supported by Hip Show for now, so all I do is only for you! So, you are the only people who encourage me and give me a new power and will to continue developing our nice project!

Thank you all! :)

    Hello Steve! This bug sometimes happens if you change the speed during playback. It may be fixed by changing Caspar's code or by moving to OSC protocol. So, it will need a time to fix it. But the ability to change the speed worth it! :)

    This version is great, seems much more stable. I also really like the speed bend bar.
    I've noticed that the playlist function pauses a while after one clip has stopped before the next starts. It does pause on the final frame so doesn't look awful, but I think it should ideally be faster.
    I'm not sure if this is related to the file format, as I have tried some test MP4's which are also a fair bit smaller, and the change between clips is smoother.
    Perhaps some buffer or something could be used to smooth the transition?
    Kind Regards
