Version history / Release notes / Changelog


--- What's new in Zoom Player v13.1:
New :

* The default fullscreen navigation interface has been replaced with a
clean new style that looks better and extends the available thumbnail
area to squeeze in a few more pixels.

* The media library category thumbnail view will now darken the area
behind the thumbnail's text or media icon depending on the skin's
script and advanced options customization settings.

* Zoom Player support for streaming radio station is now fully integrated
with the SHOUTcast Directory API, providing easy access to thousands of
streaming radio stations.

Unlike previous versions where Zoom Player used a static database which
over time included more and more dead stations, the SHOUTcast directory
is now downloaded in real time, ensuring that every station should be
operational.

* Zoom Player now supports 3DYD YouTube Source filter's DASH streams,
enabling DirectShow YouTube streaming at resolutions of 1080p/4K/8K.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Video) to force LAV Splitter to
seek to key frames (faster seeking, less accurate) instead of the
accurate seek position (slower seeking, perfectly accurate).

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback) to select the YouTube IFRAME
Player's preferred streaming resolution, allowing you to stream
1080p/4K/8K content using the IFRAME player.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback) that allows interactivity when
playing YouTube content using the IFRAME player.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Display) to show the playing
file's extension in the window title (default off).

* New skin script parameters to control the text line count on each
fullscreen navigation interface.
Changes :

+ The thumbnail duration display position should now be easier to read.
The text's background is now using a different effect which should
make the text stand out more against bright noisy thumbnails.

+ The Hot Mouse Tracking on the main fullscreen navigation interface
has been disabled as it was inconsistent with the other interfaces'
user experience.

+ The "Open Streaming Link from clipboard" keyboard macro has changed from
Alt+Shift+"U" to Alt+Ctrl+"U" to prevent conflicts with the DirectShow
YouTube source filter which detects the held "Shift" key and pops a video
streaming quality options dialog.
Fixes :

- The optimizations in v13 broke the play history dialog's unicode support.

- The play history dialog's "Show All" button did not refresh the screen.

- The Media Library's function menu was missing the "Go to Top" entry.

- The Media Library's "Safe Mode" feature was semi-broken allowing access
the a category's setting from the media library's function menu.

- Opening the media library through the main navigation interface would
take longer than normal due to the highlighted category's content being
read before actually entering the category.

- The playlist fullscreen navigation interface used the wrong icon for URLs.

- The "Please Wait" window was trying to write debug information to "C:\Log"
and silently failing each time.

- The RSS media library plugin was showing links containing ".MOV" as audio.

- Fixed a small memory leak when using the options dialog.

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: 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: 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: 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.



Feb 25, 2007 Version: 5.00 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value: 4/10 Overall: 5/10



I just wanted a player that had an adjustable stay-on-top skin window size. This did it for me.
