Version 13.5 release candidate 1 has been released.

Version 13.5 release candidate 1 has been released.

Download:
http://inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_beta.shtml


Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!

* New "fnPLEraseFiles" function assigned to the Shift+"Delete"
keyboard macro. When used it erases all selected files in the
playlist to the window's Recycle Bin (with confirmation prompt).

* New "fnOpenStreamInBrowser" function that opens the currently
playing stream in a web browser (might be helpful for YouTube links).

+ The integrated keyboard mapping editor has been rewritten to better
support high-DPI displays. As a bonus, the dialog is now resizable
as well.

+ The integrated keyboard mapping editor now shows a 'code' column
which signifies a keyboard scan-code or other code used to identify
an interface index.

+ Optimized fullscreen navigation lists line-drawing code by about 10%
in cases where the skin didn't specify a background for
unselected/empty lines.

- The kinetic scrolling feature did not work in the media library's
category list.

- The file browsing fullscreen navigation interface was not updating
the screen when scrolling by holding the down/up keys for a long
period.

- If the monitor's DPI setting was set to a really high value (when
used in 4K monitors), it would cause the options dialog's search
window to appear really small, hiding the search result area.

* You can now define web pages as "stations" in the station editor to have

- Navigating the fullscreen file browsing interface's subtitle search result
page with the keyboard did not scroll the results when reaching the bottom
of the screen.

- Opening a ".URL" file and then opening a media file resulted in the web
page remaining on screen while the media played in the background.

- Dropping files on the player window did not start playback automatically.

Download Zoom Player 13.5

Version 13.5 enhances Zoom Player's Home Theater PC look & user experience, introduces a great new selection of internet radio stations, fixes many small bugs and provides an important work-around for a performance degradation issue introduced in the Windows 10 Creators Edition (more on this below).

Enhanced fullscreen navigation experience
The new navigation style is cleaner and optimizes the available content area. In the next few weeks we will be releasing a special version of the new navigation style designed for use by the visually impaired or when viewing on a smaller screen.

SHOUTcast Radio Station index
Real-time access to the SHOUTcast.com internet radio station list directly from Zoom Player, the most popular radio stations from across the globe, easily accessible and sorted by genre.

YouTube Enhancements
With DirectShow, Zoom Player now supports playback of YouTube 1080p/1440p/4K/8K DASH streams. With the YouTube IFRAME player, you can now specify the preferred streaming quality and use an interactivity mode which enables mouse clicks to interact with YouTube's widgets and thumbnails. Non-English searches using the YouTube media library plugin now work correctly.

User eXperience Enhancements
The media library category thumbnail text is now easier to read with better background contrast, You can now instruct Zoom Player to seek to key-frames for faster (less accurate) seeking, Hot Mouse tracking and click logic on the main fullscreen navigation interface was changed to be more consistent with other interfaces.

Windows 10 Creators Edition
In Windows 10 Creators Edition, Microsoft changed large fonts anti-aliasing (reduces font blockiness) to the higher-quality ClearType Algorithm. As a result, drawing each line of text took 10 times longer and compounded in real life usage to x50-x100 slower screen updates.

As a work around, a new setting (Adv. Options / Fullscreen Navigation / Customization - Anti-Aliasing) has been introduced to control the anti-aliasing mode used when drawing navigation text. The new setting has the side-benefit of even faster screen updates on lower end PCs by disabling Anti-Aliasing entirely.

What more is new?
Zoom Player 13.5 includes many new enhancements and features, the full list is available here.

Version 13.7 MAX beta 1 has been released.

Version 13.7 MAX beta 1 has been released.

Download:
http://inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_beta.shtml


Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!


* The default fullscreen navigation skin has been tweaked a bit and now
includes a new variant with larger fonts for the visually impaired and
small displays.

* New Smart Play setting to control which DirectShow filter is used to
stream SHOUTcast and ICEcast streams.

* New Smart Play profile setting that determines if Zoom Player should
use a profile if the input is a file name, URL or both.

* New Smart Play "MP3 (streaming)" profile used to specify which filter
should be used with streaming MP3 files (by default LAV Source).

* When playing live SHOUTcast/ICEcast streams, the on screen display
now updates with the currently playing track name.

+ A cooperation with TheAudioDB.com resulted in an improved album-name
identification algorithm (used for scraping Album meta-data and
cover art within the Media Library).

+ LAV Source is now used by default for SHOUTcast type streams.

+ When using LAV Source to stream SHOUTcast/ICEcast content, the playing
track's now is now properly displayed in the title and timeline areas.

+ Opening a ".PLS" playlist containing URLs is now assumed to contain
SHOUTcast streaming audio stations.

+ The Options dialog search window still appeared too small on
very high resolution screens, will now show more result lines.

- Playing ICEcast ".xspf" streams did not work with some servers.

- Deleting a media library cateogry using the media library "remove
category" feature left some cache files behind when clicking the
trash can icon (pressing enter or double-clicking did not trigger
this issue).

- An "new components update on the install center" notification was
accidentally triggered by Install Center update entries for Zoom Player
itself (which has a separate update notification), resulting in a
double notification.

- The Mouse Wheel, Navigation Style, Information, Main, Stream Selection,
Media Scanner and Play History were showing the wrong number of text
lines which caused the list to appear slightly off-center.

Version 13.7 beta 2 has been released.

Version 13.7 beta 2 has been released.

Download:
http://inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_beta.shtml


Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!


v13.7 :

* The Media Library's settings page has been expanded to configure the
layout of each category and the category list itself without ever
exiting the fullscreen navigation interface.

The following customization options are now available,
Per-Category:
1. Aspect Ratio
2. Text-Box lines
3. Text height
4. Horizontal spacing
5. Vertical spacing

Globally:
1. Categories columns
2. Categories Text-Box lines
3. Categories Text height
4. Text margins

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation /
Customization) that specifies the number of columns drawn for the
media library's category list thumbnails.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation /
Customization) that specifies the number of text lines drawn for the
media library's category list thumbnails.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation /
Customization) that specifies the margin area around the media library's
thumbnail text.

* The internal screen saver now displays the playing media's current play
position.

+ The media library's thumbnail font size configuration was calculated in
a poorly conceived manner that made it difficult to change a thumbnail's
font size and line numbers while maintaining consistency across different
thumbnail aspect ratios.

This has led to a complete rewrite of the text rendering code and new
defaults being applied which may affect your previous thumbnail layout
settings.

+ Switching between categories should update the thumbnails a bit quicker
(~300ms) if they were previously memory cached.

+ Slightly tweaked the SHOUTcast station browser dialog to increase space
for translated texts.

+ Adding a station to the station manager now automatically highlights
the newly created station.

- Pressing the "Auto-Scan System" button on the Audio Visualization
Adv. Options dialog page would trigger a crash with some Sonique
plugins preventing the scan from functioning. Now the crashing
plugin is skipped.

- Adding too many audio visualization plugins would cause the plugin
list to reset once Zoom Player was restarted.

- Adding a station using either the Station Manager's SHOUTcast station
browser or using the fullscreen station navigation interface did not
work if a non-english language pack was in use.

- In the Station list fullscreen navigation interface, the "Previous
Folder" function worked on the root level even though there was
no folder above it, resulting in an empty screen display.

- In the Station list fullscreen navigation interface, navigating
left from the functions page would go up a folder instead of
returning to the station list.

- When setting the thumbnail text to appear above the thumbnail, the
media library's category thumbnail display would improperly position
the thumbnail under the text.

- The media library category cache did not function properly, leading
to a slight performance hit when initially opening the media library.

- The Graph Information dialog did not display unicode text correctly.

Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!

* New "fnMediaSrcToClipboard" function that copies the playing media

the Windows clipboard.

* New "fnWMPActiveX" function to enable/disable Windows media content
streaming using Windows Media Player's ActiveX control.

Version 13.7 final has been released!

Zoom Player 13.7 enhances the media library by expanding thumbnail layout options while making them directly accessible
through the fullscreen navigation interface, Introduces a second fullscreen navigation layout with fonts designed for the
visually impaired or smaller screens, enhances support for high DPI setting used with 4K screens and more ...

Download Now!

Media Library enhancements
Zoom Player's media library has always been dynamic. In this version the level of customization has been enhanced by
making layout configuration easily accessible without leaving the fullscreen navigation. You can change the local category's
thumbnail aspect ratio, column count, text lines per thumbnail, text line height and the spacing between thumbnails. Additionally,
global values such as the category list columns, text lines, text height and text margins can be adjusted.

A second fullscreen navigation layout is now included, providing larger font sizes to enhance readability at a distance and
on smaller screens.

A cooperation between Zoom Player and TheAudioDB.com resulted in an improved album-name identification algorithm (used for scraping Album meta-data and cover art).

Caching has been optimized and thumbnails now load much faster when switching between categories.

Featured Videos
We have created a new Featured Videos media library category where you can find great videos demonstrating quality cinematography, collaborative film making, innovative computer rendering and demanding hardware tests.
If you would like to feature your content on this channel, please contact us.

High DPI modes
With the greater availability of 4K screens, microsoft introduced enhancements to support dialog scaling on high resolution screens.
In this version, Zoom Player implements these changes and automatically scales unskinned dialogs according to the Windows DPI scaling.
A new setting has been introduced, providing a manual override of the Windows DPI setting by having Zoom Player scale the dialogs at
a user-specified value.

YouTube enhancements
YouTube subtitles are now supported when playing through DirectShow. Within the media library, the YouTube plugins have been enhanced
to present the YouTube channel's name more prominently.

More Fixes, Features & Enhancements
The above list contains just the highlights. Many more smaller fixes, features and enhancements have been built into this version.
For the full list click here.

Announcing v13.7.1

This is a bug fix version,
A few important bugs in v13.7 had to be squashed quickly as they affected most of Europe (or any other country that used "," as their decimal symbol).

Download:
http://inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_download.shtml

Check out the full bug-squashing list here:

Code:
  + Adding chapters using the chapter editor will now instantly
     show the chapter's position in the timeline (if timeline display
     is enabled).
   - Fixed a bug in countries with a comma decimal symbol where the
     media library thumbnails text height and spacing got truncated.
     
     For example:
     A thumbnail's Text Height of "1.95%" (1,95%) resulted in an actual
     text height of "1%".
   - Loading ".PLS/.XSPF" playlists where the first item in the playlist
     did not play (e.g. "server down") would trigger an infinite loop
     and Zoom Player froze.
   - The inactive navigation txt-lines background was not being drawn.
   - The "I" key will again close the information dialog if it is visible.
   - The media library category sorting order and last folder position
     could get reset under some conditions due to insufficient registry
     memory allocation.
   - Setting the control bar to appear with a fixed width while in
     fullscreen did not show the control bar in the right position (or at
     all) on secondary monitors.
   - Setting the control bar to appear at the top or bottom of the screen
     did not show the control bar in the right position (or at all) on
     secondary monitors.
   - The media library category editor did not show the currently enabled
     scraping mode, thumbnail aspect ratio and thumbnail columns when
     a language pack was installed.
   - The playlist editor line-spacing did not work well with every font.
   - Slight adjustment to the media library's thumbnail text drawing to
     better account for fonts with less-uniform character heights.
   - It was possible for a new components/filters notification to trigger
     without new components being available. It was triggered due to
     a new version of Zoom Player being available on the install center.
     Since player updates has its own notification, this message is redundant.

Version 14 beta 1 has been released.

Version 14 beta 1 has been released.

Download:
http://inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_beta.shtml


Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!


* New Download & Tracking plugin API has been developed.
The API specifies which file extensions or url sub-string matches to
pass to the Download & Tracking API instead of trying to play.

This information is specified under:
Adv. Options / File Format Association / File Extensions : Download

The API can be used create a plugin that integrate with 3rd party
download software or directly download the content itself.

The tracking portion of the API shows the currently download state
and whether there's a good chance the download is currently playbable.
This information is displayed in the media library, file browsing and
download tracking fullscreen navigation interfaces.

* New Torrent download plugin.
The torrent download plugin uses the Download & Tracking API to
pass torrent URLs and magnetic links directly to the open-source
qBitTorrent project:
https://www.qbittorrent.org/

Once a torrent is added to qBitTorrent, you can track the download
state of each file in the torrent using the download tracking fullscreen
navigation interface

* New Playlist media library source plugin that lets you assign
any playlist as a media library category.

* New setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Controls) that controls
whether Zoom Player switches to the next/previous track when using
next/previous chapter function on a media that does not contain chapters.
This setting is enabled by default.

* New setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Audio / Visualizations) that can
force playback to delay for a specified number of milliseconds after
finishing to play a track with audio visualizations.

* New "Scrape using media derived title (instead of file name)"
media library category setting used to scrape online for content
based on the media's title (instead of the file name).

* New "Do not display the media's position/duration on top of thumbnails"
media library category setting to prevent the current play position and
the media's duration from appearing on top of thumbnails.

* New "Do not display a media format (audio/video/picture) icon on top of
thumbnails" media library category setting to prevent the drawing of a
media format indicator icon from appearing on top of thumbnails.

+ The media library 'RSS Feed' plugin now caps the maximum cached entries
to 2000 and the description length to 3500 characters. Otherwise, over
time the RSS plugin data would become too large and would stop displaying.

- Zoom Player didn't look for subtitles in the XySubFilter's
paths definition, causing subtitles not to load when they
were not in the same folder as the video.

- The Zoom Player Install Center and Zoom Player itself were out of
synch, triggering a new components update notification to appear
within 2 weeks after runing the Instal Center.

- When enabling the "Seek to key-frames when using LAV Video decoder
(faster, less accurate seeking)" setting, some file handles were not
properly closed, preventing the playing media from being erased
until Zoom Player was closed.

- The key-mapping editor's search feature did not work.

- Fixed a freeze triggered by the media library's 'RSS Feed' plugin on
certain RSS feeds that used an ascii #13 as a line break.

- When playing a SHOUTcast stream, the playlist editor cleared the
selected entry every second.

- Smart Play's "Configure File Source" dialog did not set a default
value for the "Use with" field when a non-english language pack was
used.

- The Windows Picture Library and Music Library (system folders) may not
have displayed with the correct thumbnail layout in the media library.

- Double-clicking a station list entry to begin playback while the
media library was opened could trigger a playback of whatever was
highlighted in the media library instead of the station list entry.

- In some cases, when using the "Media Close Delay" feature, the delay
would be twice as long as the specified value.

- Debug logs related to kinetic scrolling were being saved by the
non-debug version.

Version 14 beta 2 has been released.

Download:
http://inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_beta.shtml


Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!



* New feature (Adv. Options / Playback / History) to prevent files or
URLs from being saved to the play history. All you need to do is
specify a partial string, for example "\some folder name" or
"someurl.org".

* New feature (Adv. Options / Playback / History) to hide files or
URLs from being displayed in the play history dialogs while
still remember the last playback position, volume, subtitle track,
etc. All you need to do is specify a partial string, for example
"\some folder name" or "someurl.org".

* New feature (Adv. Options / Playback / Controls) to disable seeking
controls when playing files or URLs containing a specified path or text.

* New feature (Adv. Options / Playback / Audio / Visualizations) to
override the audio renderer when playing with visualization.

This allows you to use the "DC-Crossfading Audio Renderer" to support a
volume fading effect on Start/End/Play/Stop/Seek only when playing with
visualizations. This is similar to how WinAmp fades audio between tracks.

Download the DC-Crossfading Audio Renderer here:
(http://www.dsp-worx.de/?n=14)

* You can now create and save chapter points (bookmarks) for streaming URLs.

* The fullscreen information navigation interface now includes media format
information extracted using the MediaInfo.dll plugin.

* New "exSetAudTrack" extended function that sets the current audio track.

* New "exSetSubTrack" extended function that sets the current subtitle track.

+ The internal image decoder (JPEG/GIF/PNG/BMP) is now capable of
downloading and displaying images directly from web servers
(e.g. a playlist full of image URLs).

+ The playlist fullscreen navigation interface now draws a playing icon
next to the currently playing track.

+ The YouTube Search and Trending media library plugins will now use a
search/trending thumbnail when creating new categories.

This change does not apply to previously created categories.
The new images can be manually assigned using the category configuration
dialog.

By default the new images are located here using Windows 64bit:
"c:\Program Files (x86)\Zoom Player\MediaNavPlugins\YouTube_Search.jpg"
"c:\Program Files (x86)\Zoom Player\MediaNavPlugins\YouTube_Trending.jpg"

And here using Windows 32bit:
"c:\Program Files\Zoom Player\MediaNavPlugins\YouTube_Search.jpg"
"c:\Program Files\Zoom Player\MediaNavPlugins\YouTube_Trending.jpg"

+ The media library plugin API can now accept local-file thumbnails
when creating new categories.

- Fixed a crash when trying to load a malformed play history cache file.

- With some language packs, the text for the station manager's left
column would cut-off.

- Playing a media from the windows explorer (or other 3rd party software)
would show an "are you sure?" prompt by accident.

- Playback of ASX playlists did not work.

Version 14 beta 3 has been released.

Version 14 beta 3 has been released.

Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!



* The Torrents plugin and the fullscreen download tracking navigation
interface have been enhanced with the ability to predict when you can
begin playing a media file while it is still downloading.

The prediction is based on the number of torrent pieces that have
successfully downloaded from the beginning and end of the media file.

By default this is 2% from the beginning of the file and 1% from the end.

Please note that the torrent playback readiness prediction requires
a custom qBitTorrent EXE that supports an enhanced API that Zoom Player
uses to understand which part of the file have finished downloading.
Until these enhancement are part of an official release, you can test
the new feature by downloading qBitTorrent 3.4 beta 2 64bit:
https://www.fosshub.com/qBittorrent...._x64_setup.exe

And then replacing "qbittorrent.exe" with this update:
http://zoomplayer.com/t/qbittorrent_enhanced.zip

Without the updated qBitTorrent EXE you will see a "?" next to the file
names in the download tracker instead of the playback readiness icons and
new torrents will not download automatically in sequential order.

A quick slideshow demonstrating how the Torrents plugin looks and works:
https://www.facebook.com/zoomplayer/...5689062513061/

We are building a library and possibly a seed-box to show case public-
domain and creative commons videos. If you would like to expose your video
to Zoom Player's user base, please contact us at:
https://inmatrix.com/email/business.shtml

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Playlist) to automatically play
the next media in the playlist after deleting the currently playing
media. This setting is disabled by default.

* When taking screenshots of the playing video (Alt+F keyboard macro),
the current play position is now saved as part of the file name.

+ Pruning the play history (using the button) no longer erases URL entries,
only local files that were erased from the disk drive.

+ Using the "open streaming link" or "open streaming link from keyboard"
functions will now relay downloadable URLs to any matching download plugin
(for example .torrent/magnet links) without affecting the current playback.

+ The thumbnail and meta-data cache folder is now cleared once
a week instead of on every exit, improving the time it takes
Zoom Player to close.

+ The "unknown" icon has been updated to better suit the UX design.

- [Introduced in v14 b2] The TAG display when playing audio files did not
display at all or would display a lot of low-level information on the
playing file that should have only displayed in information dialogs.

Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!


* The media library fullscreen interface's settings page can now be used
to select the Audio Rendering device (audio output), making it easy to
switch between different output modes (switching audio between rooms,
speaker setups, headphone output, etc).

* The media library fullscreen interface's settings page can now be used
to select the Video Rendering device, making it easy to test out
different rendering qualities or in cases where a particular video
may not play correctly in your preferred video renderer.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / On Screen Display) that controls the OSD
clock position.

* New (optional) control bar button to open/hide the fullscreen stream
selection navigation interface.

- Installing an audio device or a custom audio renderer filter would
change the selected audio renderer for DVDs and WMP ActiveX playback.

- The controlbar's volume pop-up slider did not appear in the correct
position under some circumstances.

- Fixed a glitch where TAG display for a local file playback would show
"???" instead of international characters.

- Fixed an issue where audio visualization wouldn't render in the correct
resolution when changing the visualization display size.

- The Torrents download tracking plugin did not handle character decoding
correctly for non-english characters.

- Wrong duration displayed in the playlist when using Windows Media Player's
ActiveX control to play streaming media.

Version 14 beta 5 has been released.

Version 14 beta 5 has been released.

Download:
http://inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_beta.shtml


Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!


* The download progress display in the media library and file browsing
fullscreen navigation interfaces is now using the download tracking plugin
system, let me know if there are any issues or performance degredration.

* A custom build of qBittorrent 3.4b2 is now available in both 32bit and
64bit versions. This custom build is required for the new Torrents
plugin to start torrents in sequential download, set torrent speeds and
determine if a media file has enough pieces downloaded that playback can
begin.

Download 32bit/64bit:
http://inmatrix.com/download/qbittor...stom-build.exe
http://inmatrix.com/download/qbittor...stom-build.exe

Note:
This custom functionality is already integrated into qBittorrent's code base
and should be available in the next official release.

* Download tracking plugins can be enabled, disabled and configured through
a new interface under "Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation /
File Tracker".

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation) to display
all navigation interfaces on a secondary monitor.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback) that reloads a live stream if the
stream disconnects unexpectedly.

+ The new version update notification will now include a condensed highlight
list of what changed in the latest version (will only appear in the next
version released after this one).

- Fixed a major issue with random play that would cause it to stop working
after the entire playlist has been finished playing one time.

- Hiding the "Media Scanner" and "Remove Category Folder(s)" from the media
library's category listing would break keyboard quick search from working
on the last category listed.
