Announcing Zoom Player v8.5 final




It's finally ready! The most visually polished version of Zoom Player EVER!
I hope everyone enjoys this release, the team worked long and hard to make sure v8.5 is a great success.

The FREE version will be released next week, PRO and MAX users can download right away and start playing:
Download Zoom Player v8.5 MAX.
Download Zoom Player v8.5 PRO.

For the full change log from v8.1.6, click here.

What changed since v8.5 RC1:
Code:
  * The LAV Video decoder can now be selected as a DVD video decoder.
    LAV's DVD support is still experimental.

  * The PowerDVD 12 video decoder is now supported for DVD decoding.

  * The OPUS Audio format is now fully supported.
    Existing users may want to click on the 'Default' button next to the audio
    file extensions under:
    Adv. Options / File Format Association / File Extensions

  * Zoom Player now supports the Open-Source DVD Navigation filter:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/dslibdvdnav/

  * New fullscreen navigation skin-scripting parameter to set the playlist's
    active playing track color, when it is the selected entry.

  * An LAV Video decoder option has been added to the Theora Video
    Smart Play profile.

  * A new Theora Video sub-type has been added to the Smart Play profile.

  * A new warning dialog now pops-up when trying to enable certain conflicting
    settings in the options dialog.

  * When selecting items in the fullscreen navigation interface, for additional
    clarity, an icon is now used to mark the selected entry.

  + The uTorrent and eMule download percentage in the fullscreen navigation
    interfaces has been changed to a more suitable color and is now aligned
    to the left of the file name.

  + The mouse wheel's Increase/Decrease play rate function now works in
    10% increments.

  + The function list dialog's search function has been enhanced for clarity.

  + Smart Play now strips the '.!ut' file extension when evaluating which
    source filter to use. This change should improve playback stability of
    incomplete media files downloaded with uTorrent.

  + More Smart Play profiles now provide an 'LAV' option to use as the
    decoder/splitter.

  - Fixed several memory leaks, especially when loading skins or
    expanding/contracting skin elements.

  - Several bug-fixes to the FFDShow and VobSub's Subtitle rendering filter's
    subtitle track cycling.

  - Multiple bugs fixed in the subtitle track selection dialog, including:
    Active subtitle track was not always detected.
    A 'disabled' subtitle track entry was not always present.

  - When using MadVR as the video renderer, Zoom Player now exits
    fullscreen exclusive at the end of each track, increasing MadVR
    stability (no more fullscreen freezes between tracks on some
    systems).

  - Changing the fullscreen navigation's 'navigation line count' value
    no longer distorts the 'Path' icon size in the following fullscreen
    navigation interfaces:
    1. Media Library.
    2. File Browser.
    3. Station Browser.
    4. Download Manager.

  - When setting the fullscreen navigation's 'navigation line count'
    value to a high figure, the Equalizer and Color Control navigation
    interface's display became too small to read.

  - When using 'automatic subtitle stream selection' with multiple
    'text match' values, the last matching text was used instead
    of the first matching.

  - The current media's Scene-Cut list would get wiped clear when switching
    skins or expanding/contracting skin elements.

RMVB, Pin Connection Warning

Hi,
I have this problem when trying to play an .rmvb video:

Code:
Real Media :
Pin Connection Warning (Not an Error):

[Source: Smart Play Graph].Video  --->  [LAV Splitter].Input

Code: No such interface supported  (80004002)
I ran Zoom Player Install Center and installed all components.
I also downloaded and installed both Download Gabest RealMedia Splitter v1.0.1.0 and Real Alternative 2.0.2, but the issue still exist.

I'm new to Zoomplayer and don't know if it's a bug or it's my fault.
Thanks for support

You don't have RMVB configured to use Gabest's splitter right now it looks like if you're getting an LAV Splitter error, but LAV splitter can handle RMVB files so that still shouldn't be happening.

Might want to make sure LAV Splitter has .rm (realmedia) format checked on.

Here's a new ZP MAX v8.6 test build:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/104094858/zplayer_860b2.rar

There's a change-log inside, the reason I'm posting this is that this build adds color-control support in MadVR.
