We are very excited to release our latest set of improvements to the Pupil project
- New unified video capture backend: pyUVC - No more patching of Linux. Single USB support everywhere!
- MJPEG recording option. (Uses no CPU but makes bigger files, currently for Linux only -Mac works when running from source).
- Fixation detector for Pupil Player.
- Pupil and gaze data is now also saved in a pickled file. We use this internally for Pupil Player
- Now you can open a different recording in Pupil Player simply by dragging it onto an existing window.
- Pupil Player now opens a blank window when started without recording. You can drag and drop a recording into this “dummy” to open a recording.

We just released v0.5.4:
MJPEG recording is now officially implemented and supported on Mac and Linux both in bundle and running from source.
Unlike version 0.5.3 we no longer rely on a
ffmpeg executable to be present for this. Its back to simply download and install the bundle.
v0.5.5 Hotfix for Pupil Player
This release fixes a bug that prevented
mjpeg recordings to be exported.
