Zoom Player 6.00 RC2

Posted on Friday, May 02 2008 @ 23:38:30 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.

  * You can now specify additional paths for the File Browser (Adv. Options /
    Interface / On Screen Display / Fullscreen Navigation).
    New paths appear as drives.  You can add network shares (for example
    "//USER/Video/" and even local paths such as "C:Media" creating instant
    shortcuts to important directories on your system.

  * The Chapter editing interface has been modified with a chapter name history
    drop-down list and instead of a dialog opening up when adding a chapter,
    now you can just type in the chapter name (or pick from the drop-down
    history list) and press enter or click the add chapter button, making it
    easier to add chapters.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface) allowing you to lock filter/decoder
    configuration (property) pages to the main user interface (otherwise they
    appear as a floating window).

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display /
    Fullscreen Navigation / Settings) allowing you to select if Cut,
    Copy & Paste operations allow you to overwrite files.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display /
    Fullscreen Navigation) allowing you to specify the minimum number of
    characters that appear when using Quick Search.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Video & Subtitles) allowing you to
    enable/disable Closed Captions support for media files.

  * New Button (Adv. Options / Playback) allowing you to reset the
    Remember Last Position cache (and play history, which are the same thing).

  * New "/SP:[n]" command line parameter allowing you to turn Smart Play ON/OFF.
    To turn Smart Play off use "/SP:0" to turn it on use "/SP:1".

  * New "<FileIndex>" skin script dynamic variable that returns the current
    playing index.

  * New "<PlayListCount>" skin script dynamic variable that returns the current
    playlist item count without adding the "file(s)" text to the returned value.

  * New DVD profiles for the Convolver filter:

  * The Main fullscreen navigational interface is now accessible directly through
    the right-click context menu.

  * Support for the ".WAX" ,".WVX", ".WMX" playlist file extensions.

  + Opening "mms://" addresses should now work a little better.

  + When using the File Browsing and Media Library navigation interfaces, the
    Copy & Paste functions will now show an OSD message while moving files and
    a success/fail OSD message when the file operation completes.

  + When opening the player with secondary windows open (playlist editor,
    equalizer, etc...) the keyboard focus did not remain on the main window.

  + Real-Time Frame rate reporting on the information dialog should now work
    with Custom Video Renderers as long as they support the IQualProp interface.

  + The "Add Chapter" function's keyboard macro has been changed from "C" to

  - Fixed List Index out of Bounds error when playing archived files.

  - Switching between skin modes in the skin selection dialog would not update
    the available skin lists properly between modes.

  - Using the play next file in the same directory should no longer flash
    the media background images between files. This fix also makes the
    images load faster.

  - The Screen Orbiting feature did not accept values properly.

  - Setting a Playlist Font/Color override would return to the skin values
    when switching skin modes.

  - Disabling Skinning of the OSD Action pop-up and setting it to transparent
    didn't work properly.

  - The Skip to the next file in the playlist when an unplayable file is
    encountered function no longer skips to the next file if the entire
    playlist is unplayable.  This fix prevents the playlist from looping
    in error messages forever.

  - Improved Network path support for paths starting with "//".

  - Cosmetic glitch fixed in the advanced playlist control (buttons could

  - Cosmetic glitch when drawing translucent scrollbar/path graphics within
    the fullscreen navigation interfaces that caused the scrollbar and path
    graphics to become less and less transparent over time.

  - More cases of unsupported hardware color control are now detected by the
    color control navigational interface.

  - Disabling the "'Del' key moves media files to the recycle bin (with
    confirmation)" setting  would erroneously disable the erase function from
    working in the media library and file browsing navigation interfaces.

  - Trying to play Audio-CDs through the file browsing navigation interface
    would not play the file.

  - EVR with Smart Play disabled should now work on Windows XP (with .NET v3
    or newer installed).

  - Various "Invalid Floating Pointer operation" EVR errors have been fixed.

  - Opening the skin selection dialog with a navigation interface visible
    would not show the correct tint values (it showed the skin's tint
    values rather than the navigation tint values).

  - When the player was set to "Stay On Top", some options dialog sub-menus
    would appear beneath the options dialog, making them inaccessible.

  - When the player window would lose focus, the control bar
    stopped auto-hiding.

  - The internal image decoder can now load images from network paths.
