Zoom Player v19 release candidate 2 has been released

Zoom Player v19 release candidate 2 has been released

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


Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!


* The hint pop-up that appears when hovering with the mouse
cursor over a skinned user interface button now includes the
keyboard macro used to activate the button.

* You can now rotate the playing video by 90 degree increments
using MPC-VR as the video renderer by pressing Shift+"R".

* Subtitle synchronization adjustments now works when using the
MPC-VR video renderer.

* New "fnMPCVRinfo" Zoom Player function to toggle MPC-VR's video
rendering information overlay. The new function is assigned by
default to the Ctrl+"J" keyboard macro.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / libVLC) to enable SHOUTcast
playback using the libVLC media engine. I do not recommend enabling this
setting, the way libVLC handles SHOUTcast playback is sub-par compared
to the default DirectShow media engine.

* You can now press Ctrl+"C" with an IPTV EPG program selected to copy
the program name to the Windows Clipboard.

* New "Configure" button in the Advanced Options' Audio Renderer selection
dialog. Mainly useful when using the MPC Audio Renderer option.

+ The IPTV window's active stream list is now restored when re-opening.

+ The Open-Source media library YouTube plugins will notify you when
Zoom Player's YouTube API key quota has been reached.

Since YouTube is limiting API calls, you can work-around this issue by
creating a personal API key using the instructions in Zoom Player's blog:
https://www.inmatrix.com/blog/a_guid..._api_key.shtml

+ The download tracking home theater interface keyboard macro has been
moved from Ctrl+"J" to Ctrl+"X".

+ The keyboard editor dialog now appears faster, resizes faster and you can
press a key combination to instantly find its current assignment or use
the search box to search by the feature description assigned to a key.

+ The information dialog ("I" keyboard macro) now displays real-time video
rendering information when MPC-VR is used as the video renderer.

+ The information dialog ("I" keyboard macro) now prefixes a "~" symbol
before the frame rate (FPS) value when the frame rate is not properly
detected in the media file (can happen quite often with formats that
use variable frame rate).

- Adding new Chapters (bookmarks) for existing media files would add a
second "No title" ghost entry that did not function properly.

- When an IPTV playlist contained multiple streams using the exact same
name and ID, but with a different URL or Archive Catch-up source, playing
such a stream would highlight all the streams as "playing".

- Filenames with special characters did not open correctly when using
libVLC as the media engine.

- Setting the timeline to display the media's remaining time would result
in displaying odd values when streaming live content that doesn't update
the stream's duration. Now "??:??" is displayed instead.

- Fixed an issue that prevented the last play position being restored when
using libVLC as the media engine.

- Media Chapters were not loaded correctly in regions where the decimal
separator character is ",".

- Trying to play a bad file or URL using the libVLC media engine would not
fail properly, instead leaving the player in a sort of limbo state.

- When using the libVLC media engine with the "On Playlist Complete" setting
set to "Auto-Rewind", the media would start playing and did not pause at
the media's start as expected.

- The information dialog ("I" keyboard macro) did not show the correct
resolution with some clips when using MadVR or MPCV-VR as the video
renderers.

- Fixed a case were closing and re-opening the IPTV dialog after playing
a channel would not highlight the correct channel if there were multiple
channels with the same name.

- Fixed a glitch that showed new an IPTV EPG/Playlist are ready to refresh
message and enabling the refresh button after initiating and completing
an update download from the options dialog.

- If two IPTV channels share the same channel name and EPG entry, playing
one of the entries could later highlight the identical program entry on
another channel as playing.

- Fixed a few cosmetic glitches in the default Charcoal skin.

Zoom Player v19 release candidate 3 has been released.

Zoom Player v19 release candidate 3 has been released.

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


Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!


* Added MPC Audio Decoder Smart Play profiles for many supported
audio Codecs.

* The media library YouTube plugins can now detect Live and Upcoming
videos and display this information on the thumbnail.

* The media library YouTube plugins now filter out private videos.

* In order to clear up some screen real estate, I added a new setting
(Adv. Options / Playback / IPTV) that hides the EPG program end time.
This setting is enabled by default, but can be disabled to restore the
previous program listing style.

+ Double clicking on a media library category in the media library
category editor no longer tries to configure the category, instead
Zoom Player now opens the media library within the clicked category,
allowing the category editor dialog to be used as a navigation hack
to quickly switch between categories.

+ Trying to open the media library category editor when the dialog was
already open but obscured now brings the editor window to the top.

+ Made a small user experience update to the IPTV advanced options
dialog page.

You can see me reworking the UI in this video:
https://youtu.be/BvRb6spGuN8

+ Playing a media from the play history without clearing the playlist
now shifts the playlist track listing to make sure the newly played
item is visible.

+ You can now configure the media library's YouTube plugins to select
the number of entries to download at one time, either 25 or 50.
25 being the default value to preserve YouTube's API quota limitations.

- Fixed a freeze when trying to close the IPTV window while logos were
still being downloaded.

- The playlist's "Move to Top" and "Move to Bottom" functions did not
function well, clearing the currently playing media index and
introducing cosmetic glitches.

- Fixed MPC-VR rotation (Shift+"R") and debug info (Ctrl+"J") so it
now works with videos that do not contain subtitles.

You can see me live fixing the issue in this video:
https://youtu.be/BvRb6spGuN8

- Wrote a work-around for a bug in the MPC Audio Renderer and
MPC Audio Decoder filters where their property pages appeared
in windows that did not show all the available controls.

You can see me live fixing the issue in this video:
https://youtu.be/BvRb6spGuN8

- Under very rare conditions, the media library's highlight on the
active entry would not show for the right-most column.

- Loading an ".M3U" playlist would not always get the track's
title correctly.

- Rotating the video using MPC-VR resulted in a distorted aspect
ratio when Zoom Player was set to the Derived (Automatic) aspect
ratio.

- Adding the multi-playlist feature actually broke the previously
active track from being restored with regular playlists.

- Using the media library category editor to add a broken link as a
YouTube playlist based category would create an "unknown" category
that didn't work. Now an error is returned in such cases.

- Fixed a bug that prevented the newly played playlist from entering
into view in the playlist editor window under some circumstances.

- Fixed a rare case that could have caused the skinned right-click
context menu to appear twice on screen with one of the menus
remaining stuck on screen.

- Enabling the stop button to close the playing media (local file or
stream) would not update the taskbar button hover controls.

- Even when fullscreen navigation safe mode was enabled, the Trash
icon was still visible in the playlist and file browser interfaces.

- Zoom Player behaved badly when trying to use libVLC to play
streams that are no longer available.

- Configuring the various media library YouTube plugins could cause
old setting to appear when trying to configure two different YouTube
plugins (e.g. "Channel" and "Trending") within the same session.
