Very nice, thank you for the keyboard tips !!
Anyway, I have a issue with ctr+B (subtitle roll), I posted my issue here http://forum.inmatrix.com/index.php?showtopic=13184
Too bad, is that means it would not be able to change subtitles with lavfspliter and keyboard in V8 ? I can do that with potplayer and mpchc
To be WAF compliant, I need to be able to change subtitles with only remote controler

ctrl+b seems to be broken with haali, BTW. lavfsplitter is the most bug free splitter in this town

tschi:
Which subtitle renderer are you using (Adv. Options / Playback / Video / Subtitle).
Are you using VobSub? If so, which version, did you try the one from ZP's install center?

Can you provide a link to a media+sub file I should test? For me Ctrl+B does work with VobSub and most splitters.


Everyone:
New MAX build @ http://t.inmatrix.com/zplayer800prefinal25.rar

Here's the full change list from RC3:
Code:
  * New "TSFileSource" MPEG2 Transport Stream Smart Play profile.
    Please note that the "TSFileSource" filter is not compatible with Zoom Player's
    default MPEG2 Transport splitter.  To ensure compatibility, switch the
    MPEG2 Transport splitter to the microsoft profile.

  * The BINK media format used by many games is now supported by Smart Play and
    the ".BIK" extension can be associated with Zoom Player.

  * The ".BDMV" BluRay Movie extension can now be associated with Zoom Player.

  * Zoom Player now tries to use the system default fonts in dialogs that display
    windows fonts (not all dialogs use windows font).

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display) controlling how
    the clock function displays the time & date.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation / Settings)
    controlling whether the line background for empty text lines is drawn.
    This setting is enabled by default.  If you would like to return to the
    previous look, you can uncheck this setting.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Controls) that determines whether
    Zoom Player resume function (pressing Stop twice) should resume playback
    or only restore the previous media position and remain paused.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Video) allowing you to enable
    MadVR's seek-bar.  By default the MadVR seekbar is disabled as its
    functionality duplicates Zoom Player's Control Bar.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / History) allowing you to
    auto-save the play history after playing each media file.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / System) allowing you to change the windows font
    used in most Zoom Player dialogs.

  * The Fullscreen Playlist navigation interface now draws the media duration
    when available.

  * The Fullscreen Playlist navigation interface now highlights the currently
    playing media files.

  * PowerDVD 10 profile and DVD Navigator added to "Adv. Options / Playback / DVD".

  * MediaPortal's TS File Reader filter is now supported by Smart Play.

  * A new sub-type used by the AAC format is now supported by Smart Play.

  * The Media Library and File Browsing fullscreen navigation interface's
    sort function now displays a checkbox to clearly indicate the active
    sorting mode.

  * New navigation skin scripts variable "ActiveColor", used to highlight the
    currently playing media file.

  * New navigation skin scripts variables "CursorActive" and "CursorInactive"
    used to specify the brightness adjustment value for the fullscreen
    virtual keyboard navigator cursor.

  * New function "fnSkinSelectNav" which opens the Fullscreen navigation skin
    selection navigation interface (switch fullscreen navigation skin style).

  + MadVR support for non-fullscreen images while in fullscreen exclusive mode
    (zoom in/out, panning, etc).

  + MadVR mouse-wheel scroll/tilt now works on the control bar.

  + The options search dialog now highlights the selected components, big thanks
    to Mitko for the enhanced code.

  + Redesigned the Smart Play configuration dialog for greater clarity.
  
  + The Smart Play configuration dialogs now prompt you to update a modified
    profile when clicking on a different profile in the list or clicking the
    OK button to close the configuration dialog.

  + The guard-dog function now forces Zoom Player to close if it detects a
    freeze during shutdown.
  
  + The "Adv. Options / Interface / Playlist - Use Media Title if available"
    setting will now display the media title (if available) in the fullscreen
    playlist navigation interface.
  
  + The "Start Player in" setting has moved from "Adv. Options / Interface" to
    "Adv. Options / Interface / Position & Size".

  + The "Guard Dog" settings were moved to the "Adv. Options / System /
    Guard Dog & Events" section.

  + The Local setting file saving procedure has been hardened to make it more
    resilient to system crashes.
  
  + The Play History saving procedure has been hardened to make it more
    resilient to system crashes.
    
  + The options dialog search window now remembers its previous height value.

  + The "System Overview" and "Missing Formats" options dialog sections have
    been removed as the Install Center provides more accurate information.

  + Blanking is now disabled when closing the playing media.
  
  + Blanking is now hidden and restored when opening and closing fullscreen 
    navigation interfaces.

  + Blanking is now supported through MadVR OSD, enabling blanking without
    losing fullscreen exclusive mode.

  + Pressing ESC now closes any open navigation interfaces prior to restoring
    blanked secondary monitors when pressing the ESC key multiple times.

  - The Windows 7 task list wasn't cleared if no items were selected.

  - The Install Center now identifies 3rd party 64bit installations (e.g. 7-zip).
    Thanks Gleb Egorych, Midiboy.

  - When using MadVR fullscreen exclusive mode in combination with auto-changing
    monitor resolution on fullscreen, exiting fullscreen did not restore the
    original monitor's resolution.  Thanks Hawke.
  
  - The 'Playing new content moves the player window to the top" setting was
    bringing MadVR out of exclusive mode for a split second (screen flashes).
  
  - The "CUE" chapter parsing code has been rewritten.
    It now parses unicode/ascii charsets correctly and loads meta-data
    information (Perfomer/Genre/etc).  Thanks Orf.

  - Unchecking the "Enable TAG display" setting would hide the entire display,
    including the background image rather than just the TAG display.

  - Unchecking "Save last play time and date" from "Adv. Options /
    Playback / History" would cause Zoom Player to forget any new items
    played the next time Zoom Player was restarted.

  - Choosing to hide the Zoom Player task bar icon would fail (the icon would
    reappear) under certain circumstances.

  - The GuardDog feature no longer restart Zoom Player if the internal screen
    saver is active.

  - Clicking the "Switch to Basic Mode" or "Switch to Advanced Mode" Options
    dialog buttons lost any modified settings.

  - The "Automatically restore volume level on replay with video files" setting
    was not remembered after a Zoom Player restart.

  - Fixed a complete freeze when playing audio files containing corrupt
    ID3 tags.  

  - The control bar and time display should now appear in the correct position
    when moving the video area or zooming with MadVR.

  - JPEG scanline image fixed!  Thanks Spuncut/OV2.

  - The Next/Previous track with no items in the playlist did not use
    natural sorting to pick the currect next file to play from the same
    directory as the currently playing media.

  - Folder image base names did not recognize the use of paths.  Thanks Orf.
  
  - The Smart Play configuration dialogs now selects the first profile from the
    list when erasing a profile so the previously erased profile's filters do
    not remain active.
    
  - Changing the navigation keyboard layout could cause a crash when closing
    the skin selection dialog through the keyboard.  Thanks Gleb Egorych.
    
  - Under certain circumstances, the skin selection dialog would show media
    skin selection while the navigation mode was highlighted.  
    
  - The Screen Saver and clock function accidentally labeled 'October'
    as 'Saturday'.
    
  - Shift+ESC didn't close the fullscreen navigation interface if the
    "Use keyboard input to quickly search and enter data through navigation
    interfaces" setting was enabled.

Ah yes, that thread. I apologize I took your thread off-topic there, tschi, with my discussion on Haali's picture renderer.

Quote:

If the ctrl-B cycling worked you could, that's what my remote is set up for.

Quote:

I don't see any difference whether I use Haali's splitter or LAV splitter with VOBsub. What happens is: ctrl-b switches the audio track instead the first time you hit it, then does nothing on subsequent presses.

I'm using VOBSub, and it is the one from Zoomplayer's install center. I know that subtitle cycling works if I use ffdshow's subtitle filter AND Haali's splitter. Using LAV splitter and ffdshow's subtitle filter doesn't do anything at all.

It doesn't work for any MKV file with multiple (embedded) subtitle tracks. Works fine for OGM files, though.

Edit: I did a full uninstall of Zoomplayer and its components, rebooted, reinstalled and changed the .exe to the 25 prefinal before posting this.

Ok, we're getting a bit clearer here.

The begin with, make sure you have Smart Play enabled.
The biggest problem is if you had a combination of external and internal subs, if that's the case, you may have an issue, but if only playing embedded or only external, it should work.

I used this small MKV file for testing:
http://www.multiupload.com/RUGOZ7H5C8
Here's what I've tried:
1. I used the latest Haali splitter (from CoreCodec download pages, not haali's), LAV CUVID for video, ffdshow for audio, VobSub for sub and EVR for renderer.
Ctrl+B works (on the sample file I have, which includes 4 subtitle tracks).
2. If I switched the splitter to LAV, then only the default language will turn on/off due to VobSub being used as the sub-selector instead of LAV. I'll investigate if this can be easily improved.

Ok, I went over the code and found an obvious glitch that affected LAV splitter sub cycle functions.
Fixed! LAV Splitter should now work with Ctrl+B

Only using internal subtitles.

Tried with the Pre 27 build. Issue is still there with LAV Splitter. Also tried resetting back to default settings and verified Smart Play was enabled and LAV Splitter was set as Matroska file splitter. Behavior was same with your test file. Audio stream gets switched instead of subtitle stream the first time I hit ctrl-b, subsequent presses do nothing.

Probably not be related, but do you have the Zoom Player audio filter disabled?
Can you post a screenshot of the graph playing the sample file I posted with all nodes expanded? (right-click video area, under filter properties)

tschi:
Yes, under Adv. Options / Playback / Paths & Files - Multi-Part file loader.

@Blight: Very weird issue. I told you on the ZP forums the subtitle switching issue is fixed, but it doesn't work on your test file. On other multi-sub MKV files it is working fine, but when I use your test file I still cannot change subtitle tracks! I also notice when I play back your particular mkv file that ffdshow is being used for video decoding again, but when I play my other MKV files LAV is being used for decoding. Do you know what might cause this?

Edit: Ah, this is XviD video! Not h264. You have to be using LAV for both splitter and decoder to get the subtitle cycler to work. I changed the XviD decoder to LAV and now I can cycle the subtitle tracks on your test file.


@WasF: Make sure the options panel is set to "Advanced" mode. "Interface" -> "Mouse" -> "Settings"
I find it works best when "Agressively Hide Mouse Cursor" is turned off and the other two checkboxes are on.

Did you try the "Aggressively hide" option (Adv. Option / Interface / Mouse / Settings.
Or do you mean an option to always have it off?

nx6:
I answered your other questions on the ZP forum, but I have one of my own.
Why do you disable "Aggressively Hide mouse cursor"?

And I don't need to use FFDShow as the video decoder to get the sub-cycle to work. Make sure you don't have the ZP Sub Renderer set to FFDShow.

I seem to recall there's been some times I have been trying to use the mouse with Zoomplayer running and it would disappear on me. Might not have been Zoomplayer hiding it, might have been the picture renderer. Even with the "aggressively hide pointer" selected I still see the mouse in the middle of the screen at times I don't want to, like when using the full screen media browser. I found the only way to prevent this is to use the "move off screen" option.

Except a problem I've found since I started using the Windows 8 beta is that there is a "show desktop" hotspot in the corner where Zoomplayer parks the mouse, so if I launch Zoomplayer in window mode and then jump to full screen mode, soon after that the Zoomplayer windows become transparent because it has moved the mouse to that corner and activated the Show Desktop feature.

Edit: The option is actually called "peek at desktop" (since it doesn't move the program windows, just makes them transparent rectangles) and I can turn it off I've found out. Now that corner will only hide the other windows and show the desktop *when clicked*, not simply hovered over. So that fixes that problem.

Quote:

You mean LAV decoder? That's what I was finding. Only when I used LAV splitter + decoder did the cycle subtitles work again.

ZP's sub settings are on VOBSub. FFDShow's subtitle renderer does not work correctly for many of my files.

Nice to have subtitle cycling again. Now the only trade-off is LAV Splitter does not support ordered chapters like Haali's does.

The mouse cursor not hiding in the navigation interfaces is on my to-do list.
It wont make it into v8, but hopefully not long after that.

New Build:
http://t.inmatrix.com/zplayer800prefinal29max.exe

Changes from v8 RC3:
Code:
  * New "TSFileSource" MPEG2 Transport Stream Smart Play profile.
    Please note that the "TSFileSource" filter is not compatible with Zoom Player's
    default MPEG2 Transport splitter.  To ensure compatibility, switch the
    MPEG2 Transport splitter to the microsoft profile.

  * The BINK media format used by many games is now supported by Smart Play and
    the ".BIK" extension can be associated with Zoom Player.

  * Updated Smart Play profiles and file association option for the 
    "3gp2, 3gpp, m2t, mp2v, mp4v, mpe, mpv2 and tts" video file extensions.

  * Updated Smart Play profiles and file association option for the 
    "adt, adts, aif, aifc, aiff, au, midi, mid, rmi, mp2 and snd" audio
    file extensions.

  * The ".BDMV" BluRay Movie extension can now be associated with Zoom Player.

  * Zoom Player now tries to use the system default fonts in dialogs that display
    windows fonts (not all dialogs use windows font).

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface) that controls whether Zoom Player
    uses Natural or Alphabetical sorting.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Playlist) that controls whether
    the playlist editor displays item numbers next to each entry in the playlist.
    
  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Playlist) that controls whether
    the playlist editor displays the media duration (length).

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display) controlling how
    the clock function displays the time & date.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation / Settings)
    controlling whether the line background for empty text lines is drawn.
    This setting is enabled by default.  If you would like to return to the
    previous look, you can uncheck this setting.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Smart Play / Settings) that
    determines whether Zoom Player auto-configures the Smart Play profiles
    when it first detects a new version of Zoom Player is installed.
    
  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Controls) that determines whether
    Zoom Player resume function (pressing Stop twice) should resume playback
    or only restore the previous media position and remain paused.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Video) allowing you to enable
    MadVR's seek-bar.  By default the MadVR seekbar is disabled as its
    functionality duplicates Zoom Player's Control Bar.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / History) allowing you to
    auto-save the play history after playing each media file.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / System) allowing you to change the windows font
    used in most Zoom Player dialogs.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / System / Screen Saver) allowing you to optionally
    set the  number of second the player should remain in screen saver mode before
    automatically exiting the player.

  * The Fullscreen Playlist navigation interface now draws the media duration
    when available.

  * The Fullscreen Playlist navigation interface now highlights the currently
    playing media files.

  * PowerDVD 10 profile and DVD Navigator added to "Adv. Options / Playback / DVD".

  * MediaPortal's TS File Reader filter is now supported by Smart Play.

  * A new sub-type used by the AAC format is now supported by Smart Play.

  * The Media Library and File Browsing fullscreen navigation interface's
    sort function now displays a checkbox to clearly indicate the active
    sorting mode.

  * New navigation skin scripts variable "ActiveColor", used to highlight the
    currently playing media file.

  * New navigation skin scripts variables "CursorActive" and "CursorInactive"
    used to specify the brightness adjustment value for the fullscreen
    virtual keyboard navigator cursor.

  * New function "fnSkinSelectNav" which opens the Fullscreen navigation skin
    selection navigation interface (switch fullscreen navigation skin style).

  + MadVR support for non-fullscreen images while in fullscreen exclusive mode
    (zoom in/out, panning, etc).

  + MadVR mouse-wheel scroll/tilt now works on the control bar.

  + The options search dialog now highlights the selected components, big thanks
    to Mitko for the enhanced code.

  + Redesigned the Smart Play configuration dialog for greater clarity.
  
  + The Smart Play configuration dialogs now prompt you to update a modified
    profile when clicking on a different profile in the list or clicking the
    OK button to close the configuration dialog.

  + The guard-dog function now forces Zoom Player to close if it detects a
    freeze during shutdown.
  
  + The "Adv. Options / Interface / Playlist - Use Media Title if available"
    setting will now display the media title (if available) in the fullscreen
    playlist navigation interface.
  
  + The "Start Player in" setting has moved from "Adv. Options / Interface" to
    "Adv. Options / Interface / Position & Size".

  + The "Guard Dog" settings were moved to the "Adv. Options / System /
    Guard Dog & Events" section.

  + The Local setting file saving procedure has been hardened to make it more
    resilient to system crashes.
  
  + The Play History saving procedure has been hardened to make it more
    resilient to system crashes.
    
  + The options dialog search window now remembers its previous height value.

  + The "System Overview" and "Missing Formats" options dialog sections have
    been removed as the Install Center provides more accurate information.

  + Blanking is now disabled when closing the playing media.
  
  + Blanking is now hidden and restored when opening and closing fullscreen 
    navigation interfaces.

  + Blanking is now supported through MadVR OSD, enabling blanking without
    losing fullscreen exclusive mode.

  + Pressing ESC now closes any open navigation interfaces prior to restoring
    blanked secondary monitors when pressing the ESC key multiple times.

  - The Windows 7 task list wasn't cleared if no items were selected.

  - The Install Center now identifies 3rd party 64bit installations (e.g. 7-zip).
    Thanks Gleb Egorych, Midiboy.

  - When using MadVR fullscreen exclusive mode in combination with auto-changing
    monitor resolution on fullscreen, exiting fullscreen did not restore the
    original monitor's resolution.  Thanks Hawke.
  
  - The 'Playing new content moves the player window to the top" setting was
    bringing MadVR out of exclusive mode for a split second (screen flashes).
  
  - The "CUE" chapter parsing code has been rewritten.
    It now parses unicode/ascii charsets correctly and loads meta-data
    information (Perfomer/Genre/etc).  Thanks Orf.

  - Unchecking the "Enable TAG display" setting would hide the entire display,
    including the background image rather than just the TAG display.

  - Unchecking "Save last play time and date" from "Adv. Options /
    Playback / History" would cause Zoom Player to forget any new items
    played the next time Zoom Player was restarted.

  - Choosing to hide the Zoom Player task bar icon would fail (the icon would
    reappear) under certain circumstances.

  - The GuardDog feature no longer restart Zoom Player if the internal screen
    saver is active.

  - Clicking the "Switch to Basic Mode" or "Switch to Advanced Mode" Options
    dialog buttons lost any modified settings.

  - The "Automatically restore volume level on replay with video files" setting
    was not remembered after a Zoom Player restart.

  - Fixed a complete freeze when playing audio files containing corrupt
    ID3 tags.  

  - Fixed a very old bug where opening a media file through non-media library
    interfaces would prevent the fullscreen media library navigation interface
    from automatically displaying the currently playing media (if the media's
    path resides within a media library category).
  
  - The control bar and time display should now appear in the correct position
    when moving the video area or zooming with MadVR.

  - JPEG scanline image fixed!  Thanks Spuncut/OV2.

  - The Next/Previous track with no items in the playlist did not use
    natural sorting to pick the currect next file to play from the same
    directory as the currently playing media.

  - Folder image base names did not recognize the use of paths.  Thanks Orf.
  
  - The Smart Play configuration dialogs now selects the first profile from the
    list when erasing a profile so the previously erased profile's filters do
    not remain active.
    
  - Changing the navigation keyboard layout could cause a crash when closing
    the skin selection dialog through the keyboard.  Thanks Gleb Egorych.
    
  - Under certain circumstances, the skin selection dialog would show media
    skin selection while the navigation mode was highlighted.  
    
  - The Screen Saver and clock function accidentally labeled 'October'
    as 'Saturday'.
    
  - Shift+ESC didn't close the fullscreen navigation interface if the
    "Use keyboard input to quickly search and enter data through navigation
    interfaces" setting was enabled.
    
  - When Smart Play is disabled, the Zoom Player DSP filter is no longer
    part of the graph if no audio streams are detected.

  - The red error dialog messages were limited to 255 characters.

  - Cleaned up some of the ffdshow profile/filter names.

  - Loading external icon definition files did not apply the icons to
    all file extensions in some cases.

Hey Blight, would it be possible to have Zoom Player read ID3 tags on audio files besides MP3?

If it's more than a simple change I'll just request it as a feature on the ZP forums for a future version.

ZP reads APE Tags, FLAC Tags and a few other tag formats.
What isn't working for you?

I don't know if you're aware of this, but I just found out that I can't use subtitles with madVR's video decoders. The problem is that ZP tries to insert VobSub or ffdshow between the video decoder and the renderer and that's not possible with the madVR decoders. The one really bad thing is that ZP doesn't tell you that it can't do it. It seems to think that it's working fine since the OSD messages show up when you switch subtitles, but the subtitles never appear.

Apparently MPC-HC, J. River and Potplayer all have their own subtitle renderers that can communicate with madVR separately so they work fine with the madVR decoders.

I have my entire CD collection ripped to my PC in iTunes in AAC and some Apple Lossless (both use .m4a file extension), along with any MP3 files I have purchased from Amazon or gotten other places, and a handful of WAV files as well. They all have ID3 tags on them from iTunes (ID3 v2.4 I think?).

I can play all these files back fine in Zoom Player, but it just displays the filename on the .mp4 and .wav files while it displays everything in the tags on the MP3 files in my library.
