Zoom Player 6.00 RC3

Posted on Wednesday, August 20 2008 @ 17:57:19 CEST 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.

  • New "/Browse" command line parameter instructing Zoom Player to open the specified web address in its internal web browser. This command line works even if Zoom Player is already running. Example:
    zplayer.exe /browse:http://www.inmatrix.com
  • New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display) allowing you to select custom DVD & Media background images.
  • Added support for the PowerDVD v8 MPEG2 video decoder.
  • New CommAPI message 1860 allowing you to pass a web address (URL) for Zoom Player to open.
  • Dropping items into the playlist now drops the items at the mouse cursor position in the playlist.
  • Updated description of video renderers.
  • When opening the options dialog on a monitor with resolution too low to display the entire dialog, the dialog will now cover more of the screen area.
  • Enabling/Disabling the DVD & Media Background images has moved to "Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display"
  • The external command to "Enqueue/Play with" Zoom Player has been moved to a shell extension under Windows 2000/XP/Vista, making it faster and more reliable.
  • The installer automatically sets legacy mode when running under Windows 95/98/ME.
  • A few more "divide by zero" bugs should be squashed with EVR.
  • Playing the next/previous file in the directory, or using similar functions such as playing the next/previous file of the same type in the directory didn't work with UNC paths (network paths).
  • Opening the media information dialog ("I") while fullscreen and then switching to windowed mode would incorrectly show the dialog.
  • When Stay On Top was enabled, the seek-to hint window would appear behind the main user interface window.
  • Erasing sub-directories in the file browsing navigation interface would fail under some circumstances.
  • Setting the control bar to be aligned with the top/bottom of the screen instead of the video area didn't work properly.
  • Fullscreen Navigation Safe Mode (File Browsing/Media Library navigation interfaces) got broken.
  • Using the "Play all files in this directory" function from the file browsing fullscreen navigation interface would crash.
  • Networked mapped drives didn't work well with the file browsing fullscreen navigation interface.
  • Playing a media file from one of the navigation interfaces no longer shows the media background image before playing the file.
  • Left over debug code broke the media library navigator if no drive D: existed on the system.
  • If transparent action OSD was enabled with OSD skinning enabled prior to installing v6.0 RC2, visual glitches could occur in the OSD.
  • Under some conditions, the TCP port would not become accessible.
  • Some Windows Media settings were not enabled in the preimum version.
