Cross-platform SDKs benefit from updates to the Decklink source, resolving incorrect device name issues, and the Overlay Manager, now featuring an `OverlayManagerDateTime` class for drawing current date and custom text.

Support for Avalonia 11.0.5 has been added, along with updates to the VLC source (libVLC 3.0.19) and FFMPEG sources and encoders, which address issues with missing MSVC dependencies. The ONVIF engine has also been updated.

Finally, the update improves the FFMPEG.exe output in VideoCaptureCore, enhancing support for x264 and x265 encoders in custom FFMPEG builds, and resolves a rare crash issue with WinUI VideoView.
