Zoom Player 6.00 RC1

Posted on Tuesday, January 29 2008 @ 12:02:54 CET by

Zoom Player was originally conceived to fill a void in Multimedia playback. Prior to Zoom Player, playing media files on the PC was either overly simplistic for the Power User or overly cryptic to the common user. Zoom Player tries to both simplify the playback experience for the common user, while giving the Power Users all the tools and interfaces they may require to manipulate their playback environment to their exact specification.

To that end, Zoom Player employs a slick and simple user interface, combined with easy to access features while at the same time providing advanced control dialogs over every feature imaginable.

Zoom Player was designed from the ground up to load quick, take as little system resources as possible, provide user feedback/direction as appropriate and maintain as much isolation from other applications and system components as not to undermine overall stability. Zoom Player is fully scalable, supporting all the latest media formats and interfaces.

  • Full EVR (Enhanced Video Renderer) support. Please note that due to a Microsoft issue/bug, you must use YUY2 as the colorspace, otherwise color control features will not function.
  • New "Configure Subtitle Filter" button (Adv. Options / Playback / Video & Subtitles) allowing you to configure the Subtitle filter more easily.
  • Added support for the ".CBR" and ".CBZ" comic book formats to the archive extraction tool.
  • New "fnPosToClipboard" function (Alt+Ctrl+"C") allowing you to copy the current playing position to the windows clipboard (which can then be pasted in another program).
  • New "exSkinTint" extended function allowing you to set the skin's RGB tinting value.
    Example: zplayer.exe /exfunc:exskintint,$7F3000
  • New "/Color" command line parameter allowing you to set the skin's RGB tintint value
    Example: zplayer.exe /color:$7F3000
  • New "/nCols", "/nRows", "/Col" and "/Row" command line parameters allowing you to divide the active monitor into columns and rows which can be used to position the player window. The "/nRows" defines the number of rows, "/nCols" defines the number of columns, "/Col" defines the active column (starting with column "0") and "/Row" defines the active row (starting with row "0").
    Example: zplayer.exe /ncols:3 /nrows:3 /col:1 /row:1
  • New "/StartPath" command line parameter allowing you to set the initial path for the file-open dialog and the file browsing navigation interface.
  • The File Navigation interface now shows the drive sizes and free space.
  • New "1130" CommAPI command that retrieves the currently playing frame rate per second (FPS). This is the same value seen on the information dialog ("I" keyboard macro).
  • New "1140" CommAPI command that retrieves that estimated frame rate per second (FPS). This value is not 100% accurate as some formats do not have a fixed frame rate or simply do not report a frame rate. In cases where the real FPS is unattainable, an estimated FPS value is returned.
  • New "1811" CommAPI command allowing you to retrieve the number of items in the current playlist. This message is also shown when the playlist item count is modified.
  • The options dialog tree view is now vista skinned.
  • uTorrent passwords are no longer plain-view. If you've used this feature, you need to re-enter your password.
  • The "1600,1601 and 1703" Audio Track CommAPI commands are now accessible for media files (no longer limited to DVDs).
  • The "1700,1701,1703 and 1704" Subtitle CommAPI commands are now accessible for media files (no longer limited to DVDs).
  • The Alt+"S" keyboard macro that shows the subtitle filter configuration dialog can now be used without any media playing.
  • If no navigation interfaces are enabled through the options dialog, the main navigation interface will no longer be accessible.
  • The installer now copies files over between standard and legacy installations (previously the files were only copied between legacy and standard installations). This could cause cases where the registration key not found.
  • Exporting Girder commands while using a local configuration file would not use the correct window name, preventing the exported girder file from working.
  • The "/F:[x]" and "/Z:[x]" parameters did not go Fullscreen on the right monitor if Zoom Player was in window mode.
  • Fixed a buffer overlow issue thanks to Luigi Auriemma.
  • Fixed a number is not integer error with the uTorrent file tracker.
  • The Zoom Player install center would not allow you to configure filters if Zoom Player was installed in a unicode directly.
  • Loading ".WPL" playlist containing network addresses should now look for the files over the network rather than in a local path.
  • The basic options dialog tree list wouldn't translate properly.
  • The fusion skin now has a black video area (previous video area was dark gray, which didn't confirm to video display standards).
