Version 15.1 beta 1 has been released.

Version 15.1 beta 1 has been released.

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


Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation / Thumb View)
that controls whether a progress position bar appears on the bottom of
thumbnails instead of the current position time (does not apply to Movie
JukeBox mode or folders since theys may be comprised of multiple media
files).

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation / Thumb View)
that controls the percentage of a media you need to see before it is marked
with the "seen" overlay (eye icon).

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface) that controls whether playback
should be paused when exiting fullscreen using the ESC key.

* The YouTube Media Library plugin now includes an option to set
your own YouTube API Key.

To get your own key, all you need is a google account and
filling in a few forms:
https://developers.google.com/youtub...an_application

By using your own API key, you can gain analytics insights from google.

+ In previous version, the seen icon (eye) would show on a media library
thumbnail if that media has been played previously.
Now the seen icon is only displayed when at least 95% of the media has
been seen (you can customize this value).

+ The media library thumbnail view has been slightly optimized, especially
when using Windows Default anti-aliasing.

- Fixed an issue that caused the wrong track to play when opening a media
file from explorer (or other external process) if the option to clear
the playlist was not enabled.

- Using the Advanced Playlist Control to sort items would not work as
intended if two items with the same file name were present in the playlist
using different titles.

- The OpenSubtitles.org subtitle search plugin did not save non-English
characters in the username correctly.

- Fixed a rare crash when resizing the media library window in thumbnail
view mode.

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


Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!


* When the current position bar is enabled, it is now drawn on movie
posters in jukebox mode.

Please note, this feature will only work properly if there is only one
video file within the movie's folder. If the movie is split across
multiple files, the bar's position may show an incorrect value.

* When using the correct folder structure for the Movie scraping
(folder named for the movie+year and one video file within), the
last play position will now appear on the movie's folder thumbnail.

+ You can now select the thumbnail progress bar size.

- Fixed a bug that triggered a re-scrape of media information whenever
daylight saving was enabled/disabled.

- Fixed a bug that prevented maximizing to fullscreen if the "Prevent
exiting Fullscreen / Zoom mode" setting was enabled in some cases.

- The YouTube plugin now correctly displays the video's publish date after
YouTube changed the date format May/2020.

Version 15.1 release candidate 1 has been released.

Version 15.1 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 "Play position bar Position and Color" settings (Adv. Options /
Fullscreen Navigation / Thumb View) allowing you to select where
the position bar appears in thumb view mode, the options are:
1. Bottom of thumbnail
2. Top of text area
3. Bottom of text area

* New "Show TV series name when scraping TV episodes in JukeBox mode"
setting (Adv. Options / Fullscreen Navigation / Settings).

* New "Disable automated cache clean-up" setting (Adv. Options /
Fullscreen Navigation / Thumb View) that prevents the automated
clean-up of the thumbnail cache.

While cleaning the cache is a once per week operation, when using a
large cache size, it can take up to a minute to clear the cache when
using a mechanical HDD drive (on an SSD drive it takes 1-2 seconds).

* Double clicking a category in the category editor dialog will now open
the category's configuration dialog.

+ When playing a media file all the way through to the end, it's position
will now display as fully played instead of no position at all.

This does not affect playback, playing the media file will start at the
beginning.

+ When using the AB-Repeat feature, the on-screen markers now hide after
setting the repeat end position, no longer obscuring parts of the video.

+ Due to a YouTube licensing requirement, OSD messages will no longer
appear when playing YouTube content.

+ You can now enter empty (folder based) media library categories in order

to perform file operations (copy/paste) instead of Zoom Player displaying

the folder's date, causing it to be re-scraped and any custom artwork to

be ignored.



- Using the internal copy/cut & paste operation on folders did not update

the media history play cache, causing the last play position to

disappear.


- The Guard Dog feature was incorrectly activated when exiting sleep mode.

selected for file operations (copy/paste).

filter is reset to ensure the correct category is highlighted.


- Updated the user-agent ZP uses when downloading data from web servers

as some servers were blocking ZP thinking it was an older browser.

Version 15.6 beta 1 has been released.

Version 15.6 beta 1 has been released.

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


Changes in this beta:

* New feature!

+ Changed feature!

- Fixed feature!


* New network keep-alive feature (Adv. Options / Playback Files & Paths)
that instructs Zoom Player to access the specified paths to make sure a
network share does not disconnect for inactivity.

+ Erasing files/folders from the media library will now erase their scraped
meta-data/thumbnail cache from the "MediaCache" folder.

- Scraping meta-data for TV series where the folder contained an ".nfo" file
didn't support IMDB IDs longer than 7 digits.

- Scraping meta-data for TV series where the folder contained an ".nfo" file
with an IMDB URL didn't write the IMDB id into the meta-data cache.

- The RSS feed media library plugin wont show duplicate entries if the server
moves from http:// to https:// links. However, old entries that were
already downloaded before this fix may remain as duplicates.

- Enabling 'Force the navigation list or thumb view display to full width'
caused cosmetic issues in the equalizer fullscreen navigation interface.
