Winter is coming….Windows 10 version 1903 (19H1): All the new features and changes 🚀 Next release 📆

Yes, I know! “Winter is coming…” it’s from a well  known TV series (aka Game of Thrones) which will have the last season in April 2019.

At same time, Microsoft plans to release the next Windows 10 version. Let’s hope is not the last one for them 🙂

This new feature update for Windows 10, known as version 19H1 is packing lots of new features and improvements to the OS and user experience.

Microsoft is now hard at work on this update, expected to include yet more changes and new features such as Windows Sets, and further UI refinements, and improvements.
Development has only just started, so the changelog for this release is still pretty small. We expect more to be added over the next few weeks and months.

At the time of writing this, the current Windows 10 version is 1809 released in October 2018, which is similar to the Red Wedding, lots of bugs and blood :))

EDIT March 2019: Meanwhile new Inside Previews have been released and Windows 10 19H1 seems to be stable, but bugs are still getting fixed till the official April 2019 release!

What is MPEG-DASH 🎬? How to download MPD video files 📺?

Nowadays many sites start using the MPD manifest instead of well known M3U8 and F4M.

Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH), also known as MPEG-DASH,  is an adaptive bitrate streaming technique that enables high quality streaming of media content over the Internet delivered from conventional HTTP web servers.

The multimedia file is partitioned into one or more segments and delivered to a client using HTTP.  For the client, aka video player, to know each segment position, a media presentation description (MPD) file describes segment information: timing, URL, media characteristics like video resolution and bit rates.

How to download MPD manifests?

ChrisPC VideoTube Downloader Pro version 10 comes with improved detection for MPD files and has up to 15x times increased download speeds.

It’s really easy to use, launch Link Finder engine, navigate to your video and the video will be detected.

Once the MPD is detected, you have to add it to download list and start the download. It will create a MP4 video file you can watch in any media player software.
