Light Alloy 4.10.2 (build 3317) 21.05.2017

Frontend:
Support for changing window size by Win key + directional keys.
If you need to play a file with unknown extension, but you don't want to change a setting that allows it globally for all files, now you can easily drag'n'drop such file (but only one!) and player will try to play it.
Playlist's the "+" button popup menu: added "Add files with only known extensions" option to be quickly accessed without need to go into Preferences->Playlist.
Display in player caption current scheduler power off time, if any.
Added hidden setting: Core.HighPriority (allows you to set High Priority for Light Alloy process)
Added hidden setting: OnDone.UnLoadLastFile (allows you to always unload last, or just alone, played file in playlist instead of default action - displaying last frame)
Do not try to play anything if add/dragndrop to playlist/videopanel is failed (for example, in case of broken CUE playlist is given)
Extended Open Dialog:
+ ability to open favorites by hotkey Ctrl+F.
+ favorites: highlight item in list if you already in this folder.
+ favorites: enumerate list.
+ favorites: ability to quickly open item in favorites list by 1-9 keys on keyboard.
= optimized Add Folder
- favorites: fixed issue with Enter hotkey on selected item (produced file playback instead of just Go to Favorite folder)
- fixed some issues with navigation (for example, the "<" button wasn't working if navigation history was empty, now it just keep going backward through path)
- fixed crash
Preferences->View->Appearance: corrected title/description for "Add chapters from files on timeline and to playlist as bookmarks" option, and option below it also got corrected title.
Preferences->View->Appearance: "Add chapters from files on timeline and to playlist as bookmarks" didn't worked correctly - it suppose to hide marks on timeline if disabled, but it didn't.
Preferences->Events: an option "on playback end - switch to windowed mode" worked incorrectly.
Preferences->File Types: fixed issues in association process under Windows 10.
Player appeared on taskbar in some cases, even if "only in tray" is set.
Next OSD after Info Line OSD wasn't erased correctly for MadVR
Player windowed size/position wasn't remembered in all cases, especially in cases like when "On Start - Switch to Fullscreen" was set.
Fixed crash with malformed CUE playlist.
Fixed a few issues with remembering panels state modes.
Fixed a few issues with On Top and child forms.
Fixed a few issues with maximized window state.
Fixed issues with window position when it became behind taskbar (if it was at top or at left) when hotkeys Alt+3/4 (Scale Change) were used
A few cosmetic fixes.

Light alloy is my new top fav video player, runs nice and light, this is and (MPC-BE) are the only video players that play my higher HD video playlists without videos stuttering and freezing as with all other over-rated players tried like Potplayer,mplayer,Virtual DJ, 5k player,Cross DJ, Zoom players etc.

To me Light alloy player plays better than MPC-BE player, light alloy also has more video audio features , options, than MPC-BE player, plus it's developer (unlike most other video programs) actually responds to user inquiries, most of these other players , have poor documentation, and mostly non-existence support etc.
I am using LIGHT ALLOY player along with my (WINTEL W8) WINDOWS MINI PC (WIN 10 HOME- 2GB RAM)- 1.33GHZ)-
(INTEL HD GRAPHICS-ULTRA 4K VIDEO PLAYBACK)

Light alloy, could easily be the top best video player over all the rest, if can possibly add these couple of missing super hot features:
1. (Top Feature request it needs) A (Video and audio crossfade effect), or video fade out video options, that many many people are turning to, to mix and transitions to video clips,and play music videos playlists smoothly.
This feature needed mainly at end of video downloads and MP4 clips playlist, so do not have to use an addtl editor program,to edit and re-encode just to fade out videos at end, instead of all cut or trimmed videos ending abrubtly, which looks terrible.
**Light alloy Developer says these hot features may be possibly added to this or another similair player of is in the very near future. This player would really be outstanding, Even had to use of some internal or external effects or plugins to crossfade video and audio.
Light alloy is better than most of these other over-rated video players that want you to pay, but they still cannot even do very basic video and audio crossfading, or even video downloading. I would never pay for these other over rated players out there.

2. Light alloy Downloader with video trimmer option,

3. Lastly, of course and addtl video and audio enhancements, video and video karaoke and playlist features, are always best.

Please keep up all the great video audio improvements Light alloy developers, easily one of the best video players out there currently!



Apr 22, 2017 Version: 4.9.3 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Finally,,a player that gives people who use Daums PotPlayer or any other player an excellent alternative..Im not knocking PotPlayer but LightAlloy plays everything I threw at it including High Definition files and audio files just as smooth as PotPlayer,,but LightAlloy is easier to configure and has no lag when exiting the program like PotPlayer..LightAlloy uses a little more memory then PotPlayer to run but uses the same amount of low cpu power..It is very much like PotPlayer but it feels more lightweight and responsive to me..I have compared so many free video players to PotPlayer over the years to no avail but for now my player of choice is LightAlloy...


Aug 19, 2013 Version: 4.7.2 portable version OS: WinXP Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



My rating means nothing since I can't install it properly. Tried multiple times and rebooted in between tries. I'm on xp sp3 up-to-date. Near the end of the install I get the message = Couldn't install data for 'a'. I tried to run the program anyway and the 1st time it allowed me to select a skin but then it closed and remained in memory but not visible. When I end it using the "end process" in the Task manager" it kills it but not if I run it again it just sits there until I reboot if I run it a second time. I reinstalled but got the same results. After 3 tries there is still no joy. Hopefully that message means something to the developer.
