The Zoom Player Function Selection dialog (accessible through several
interfaces) contain a new search function, allowing you to search through
Zoom Player's 100's of functions.
New button on the Keyboard Editor's Add/Edit key interface allowing you to
select a function from the Function Selection Dialog instead of the
The Integrated Keyboard Editor contains a new search function.
New Search function on the Play History dialog.
New "Dot Crawl" Test Pattern (Shift+"P"). Dot Crawl is
the effect caused by using Composite cables where the Color and Brightness
signals are transferred on the same wire. S-Video partially eliminates this
problem and Component Cables should eliminate it completely.
New H263 Customized Media Playback video profile.
New AMR Customized Media Playback audio profile.
With the two changes above, you can now play 3GP files over DirectShow.
Currently, this requires the use of the Haali Media Splitter with the MP4
setting checked during installation and FFDShow with AMR enabled for the
Audio Decoder and H263 enabled for the Video Decoder.
New Communication API #2600 Message, allowing you to set the Derived
Aspect ratio of the currently playing video.
New Comm API messages #1704.
Resizing of Skinned Windows (Main UI/Play List/Control Bar) should now be
(quite?) a bit faster.
The "Allow EXT anywhere in name" checkbox for the Archive
Playback function now requires that the extension contained within the file
name be followed by a period.
Changes to how DVD Next/Previous chapter operates, might be a bit faster
(on our test systems, chapter changes are now instantaneous).
The setting that controls whether the Increase/Decrease Rate function uses
Fast Forward/Rewind or Fast Play/Slow Motion will not effect the Increase
Rate/Decrease Rate functions and not only the user interface control.
The Customized Media Playback profile for MP4 files will now support the
3GP file format (which is basically the same file format).
Zoom Player no longer defaults to using the QuickTime Active-X control for
the playback of 3GP files (video format used mainly on cell phones) as there
is a DirectShow alternative which is much more reliable.
The "exSetMode" function can now be used to discretely set Zoom
Player to Audio Mode (instead of the usual function which is an ON/OFF
Added a few safety checks so that badly formatted Communication API
messages won't cause Zoom Player to crash.
Erasing a file through the navigator interfaces should no longer erase all
the files with the same base name.
Dragging the video window to a different monitor or switching resolutions
while a video is playing should no longer cause DVDs to restart! This has
been a long time issue which is hopefully finally resolved.
Fixed a "List Index out of Bounds" error when using the Halli
Media Splitter filter along with the Preferred Subtitle stream feature.
Sending Comm API message #1600/#1700 would return a stream's name instead
of its index number.
If the Play List Editor was Magnetized and the Equalizer was not, opening
the equalizer would open it in a magnetized position instead of its last
The Random Play button on the Play List Editor would show an incorrect
bitmap when enabled (cosmetic glitch).
Color control changes should work better when the color changes are done
while paused in Media Mode.
It should now be impossible for the Control Bar to appear if the internal
screen saver is visible.
Manual DVD Graph mode would keep prompting you to set the DVD decoders if
Customized DVD Graph mode did not have decoder entries selected.
You can now switch to Audio Mode even when in fullscreen.
You can now switch to Audio Mode from DVD Mode.
