"*" = New
"+" = Change
"-" = Fix

--- What's new in Zoom Player v14:
New :

* New Download & Tracking plugin API has been developed.
The API specifies which file extensions or url sub-string matches to
pass to the Download & Tracking API instead of trying to play.

This information is specified under:
Adv. Options / File Format Association / File Extensions : Download

The API can be used create a plugin that integrate with 3rd party
download software or directly download the content itself.

The tracking portion of the API shows the currently download state
and whether there's a good chance the download is currently playbable.
This information is displayed in the media library, file browsing and
download tracking fullscreen navigation interfaces.

* New Torrent download plugin.
The torrent download plugin uses the Download & Tracking API to
pass torrent URLs and magnetic links directly to the open-source
qBitTorrent project:
https://www.qbittorrent.org/

Once a torrent is added to qBitTorrent, you can track the download
state of each file in the torrent using the download tracking fullscreen
navigation interface

* New Playlist media library source plugin that lets you assign
any playlist as a media library category.

* New setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Controls) that controls
whether Zoom Player switches to the next/previous track when using
next/previous chapter function on a media that does not contain chapters.
This setting is enabled by default.

* New setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Audio / Visualizations) that can
force playback to delay for a specified number of milliseconds after
finishing to play a track with audio visualizations.

* New "Scrape using media derived title (instead of file name)"
media library category setting used to scrape online for content
based on the media's title (instead of the file name).

* New "Do not display the media's position/duration on top of thumbnails"
media library category setting to prevent the current play position and
the media's duration from appearing on top of thumbnails.

* New "Do not display a media format (audio/video/picture) icon on top of
thumbnails" media library category setting to prevent the drawing of a
media format indicator icon from appearing on top of thumbnails.
Changes :

+ The media library 'RSS Feed' plugin now caps the maximum cached entries
to 2000 and the description length to 3500 characters. Otherwise, over
time the RSS plugin data would become too large and would stop displaying.
Fixes :

- Zoom Player didn't look for subtitles in the XySubFilter's
paths definition, causing subtitles not to load when they
were not in the same folder as the video.

- The Zoom Player Install Center and Zoom Player itself were out of
synch, triggering a new components update notification to appear
within 2 weeks after runing the Instal Center.

- When enabling the "Seek to key-frames when using LAV Video decoder
(faster, less accurate seeking)" setting, some file handles were not
properly closed, preventing the playing media from being erased
until Zoom Player was closed.

- The key-mapping editor's search feature did not work.

- Fixed a freeze triggered by the media library's 'RSS Feed' plugin on
certain RSS feeds that used an ascii #13 as a line break.

- When playing a SHOUTcast stream, the playlist editor cleared the
selected entry every second.

- Smart Play's "Configure File Source" dialog did not set a default
value for the "Use with" field when a non-english language pack was
used.

- The Windows Picture Library and Music Library (system folders) may not
have displayed with the correct thumbnail layout in the media library.

- Double-clicking a station list entry to begin playback while the
media library was opened could trigger a playback of whatever was
highlighted in the media library instead of the station list entry.

- In some cases, when using the "Media Close Delay" feature, the delay
would be twice as long as the specified value.

- Debug logs related to kinetic scrolling were being saved by the
non-debug version.

Jul 16, 2017 Version: 13.7 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



what a media player,in one word just fantastic because it can play any media files quickly and it has the best audio equalizer than any other media players and by doing custom settings you can also see the total full time of all media files just by adding them immediately at the playlist and what a sharp sound it gives by doing minimum low adjustments at the audio equalizer,it has also video equalizer but only thing it requires codecs installed in your PC to play all media files like K-Lite Mega Codec Pack


Feb 8, 2011 Version: 7.10.5 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



Honestly may be the most "powerful, flexible and customizable" DVD and media player in existence. Tons of options and customizations. Highest-quality media playback. Beautiful interface. Only the high purchase price holds this fine piece of software back. Highly recommended.


Sep 30, 2009 Version: 7.00 RC1 OS: Vista Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 7/10 Overall: 9/10



This is a great video player. I used to use VLC media player, but I stumbled on this program about a year ago and fell in love with it. Simple to use, lots of features, doesn't seem to use a lot of system resources. The selling point for me was being able to adjust the aspect ratio/video size in full screen mode which you can't do with vlc.


Dec 13, 2007 Version: 5 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



At first, this looked like the player I was looking for: lots of formats and features (everything that I was looking for and some). But, it's expensive (to unlock the features I want) and it can't smoothly handle skipping around in the video (ff, rewind, skip fwd, etc) without a lot of video problems while it resynchronizes and tries to repaint the stream unless you're playing at 1:1 (why bother). I have a very fast system, including fast video (~6000 on 3dMark06). It's even worse if you have a cut file to make is skip over commercials (videos recorded off the air/cable, then processed through show analyzer).

I should note that if it wasn't for the video problems, I probably would have registered it -- even at (IMO) it's high cost.
