2FFmpeg LogoFFDShow DXVA H.264 corruption resolved

I have recently been suf­fer­ing cor­rup­tion play­ing back some H.264 files with FFD­Show try­outs.  After a bit of exper­i­ment­ing I’ve found that the last build without this issue is build 3949 from 24th-July.  I pre­vi­ously had issues with earli­er releases of FFD­Show that didn\‘t work with DXVA at all — for­tu­nately build 3949 doesn’t suf­fer this issue.  I also pre­vi­ously had a prob­lem where some builds of FFD­Show were less effi­cient on my HTPC and were unable to smoothly decode some high bitrate movies, e.g. a rip of the Inglori­ous Bas­terds Blu-Ray, which has forced me to con­tin­ue to use an old build from mid-2010 until now.  Build 3949 doesn’t suf­fer from these issues either — so in terms of the 3 prob­lems I’ve had over the years with ffd­show, build 3949 doesn’t suf­fer from any of them, mak­ing it my build of choice for the fore­see­able future.
