That's not so good if it's less stable... because the new bitmap buffer simplifies coding a lot. And ML uses now 500K less memory.

I will need to play with the version before this, which 2 do u feel its best for me to compare, its very hard to make this one crash, got to really play around with follow focus and disp with focus peaking, I cant make a crash, it just happens after using it for awhile, I never really spent that much time on the other versions cause it was stable on recording, but maybe if i play with both alot maybe the other one will crash as well, but good thing is, its really hard to crash.

That's good, so probably the change in BMP buffers didn't cause problems :)

Can you run the stability test from the Debug menu?

the quick test went fine, will a fresh charge bat last the 2 hours it says on the longer test or is the quick one all u wanted me to try?

The quick test covers most things, so... passed :)

Same on 550D/60D, even with HDMI on high resolution, where it had problems before.

I should think at a stronger one, maybe a bit more randomized. Like this:

Awsome Alex, thanks for doing all this work for us, u rock!!! I will finally feel comfortable recording hd with ML installed, I was always waiting for a crash before and it always happened when trying to record, nice to see it so stable now, it feels like its suppose to be part of the cam now. 8]

i pushed my audio.c file to the repo and put it under the 500d platform directory, just to get the code up there.

If anyone can figure out which registers need to be written to implement audio loopback for headphone monitoring, please help :P

basic process:
- study audio.c's function audio_configure() to see which registers are written in the AK4646 chip (which bits are set/cleared).
- look at the AK4646 pdf to figure out what each bit that is set/cleared does.
- look at the AK4636 pdf to figure out which equivalent bits need to be set/cleared in the 500d.

Hey, sorry if I'm asking a dumb question but... I was looking at the new start page of the ML Wiki, which is much, much better, very complete and easy to follow along. But looking at the features tables I couldnt be sure as it looks like its saying that we finally get control over aperture, shutter and iso in movie mode. It wasnt specifically saying movie mode, so thats where I'm asking here do confirm.

I did read the last 10 pages as I was out and didnt see the progress. BTW, A1ex, you look like a wizard! Man, you rock! Like we've been amog alien tech and for you its just a child's game.
