--- What's new in Zoom Player v13.7:
New :

* The Media Library's settings page has been expanded to configure the
layout of each category and the category list itself without ever
exiting the fullscreen navigation interface.

The following customization options are now available,
1. Aspect Ratio
2. Text-Box lines
3. Text height
4. Horizontal spacing
5. Vertical spacing

1. Categories columns
2. Categories Text-Box lines
3. Categories Text height
4. Text margins

* The default fullscreen navigation skin has been tweaked a bit and now
includes a new variant with larger fonts for the visually impaired and
small displays.

* Support for automatically scaling of un-skinned dialogs based on the
monitor's DPI setting. This should help greatly on 4K or higher
resolution screens. For 4K/8K skinned interfaces, there are several
options at the shop.

* YouTube subtitles are now supported when playing using DirectShow.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation /
Customization) that specifies the number of columns drawn for the
media library's category list thumbnails.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation /
Customization) that specifies the text height used for drawing the
media library's category list thumbnail text.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation /
Customization) that specifies the number of text lines drawn for the
media library's category list thumbnails.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation /
Customization) that specifies the margin area around the media library's
thumbnail text.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / System) to override scaling of un-skinned
dialogs by using a custom value (Automatic/100%/125%/150%/200%/300%/400%).
This manual control further enhanches usability for the visually impaired,
regardless of screen resolution.

* Support for qBitTorrent v3.3.13 new security enhancements. For older
versions of Zoom Player, you must use qBitTorrent v3.3.12 to continue
tracking your downloads.

* Media Titles are now properly extracted and displayed with M4V/MP4 files.

* Audio Visualization will now work for streaming audio stations if they
are defined as "Radio" stations through the station manager.

* New Smart Play setting to control which DirectShow filter is used to
stream SHOUTcast and ICEcast streams.

* New Smart Play profile setting that determines if Zoom Player should
use a profile if the input is a file name, URL or both.

* New Smart Play "MP3 (streaming)" profile used to specify which filter
should be used with streaming MP3 files (by default LAV Source).

* When playing live SHOUTcast/ICEcast streams, the on screen display
now updates with the currently playing track name.

* The internal screen saver now displays the playing media's current play

* New "fnTitleToClipboard" function to copy the currently playing media's
title to the clipboard.

* New "fnToggleSub" function to toggle subtitles on and off.

* New "fnMediaSrcToClipboard" function that copies the playing media
file or URL directly from the playing DirectShow source filter to
the Windows clipboard.

* New "fnWMPActiveX" function to enable/disable Windows media content
streaming using Windows Media Player's ActiveX control.

* New "exWMPActiveX" extended function to directly set whether Windows media
content streaming will use Windows Media Player's ActiveX control.
0 = Disabled
1 = Enabled
Changes :

+ A cooperation with resulted in an improved album-name
identification algorithm (used for scraping Album meta-data and
cover art within the Media Library).

+ The media library's thumbnail font size configuration was calculated in
a poorly conceived manner that made it difficult to change a thumbnail's
font size and line numbers while maintaining consistency across different
thumbnail aspect ratios.

This has led to a complete rewrite of the text rendering code and new
defaults being applied which may affect your previous thumbnail layout

+ Switching between categories should update the thumbnails a bit quicker
(~300ms) if they were previously memory cached.

+ Adding a station to the station manager now automatically highlights
the newly created station.

+ LAV Source is now used by default for SHOUTcast type streams.

+ When using LAV Source to stream SHOUTcast/ICEcast content, the playing
track's now is now properly displayed in the title and timeline areas.

+ Opening a ".PLS" playlist containing URLs is now assumed to contain
SHOUTcast streaming audio stations.

+ The Options dialog search window still appeared too small on
very high resolution screens, will now show more result lines.

+ Slightly tweaked the SHOUTcast station browser dialog to increase space
for translated texts.
Fixes :

- Fixed a crash when listing some RSS streams in the media library.

- Fixed a "category is empty" message when trying to list RSS streams with
very long descriptions.

- Playing ICEcast ".xspf" streams did not work with some servers.

- Deleting a media library cateogry using the media library "remove
category" feature left some cache files behind when clicking the
trash can icon (pressing enter or double-clicking did not trigger
this issue).

- An "new components update on the install center" notification was
accidentally triggered by Install Center update entries for Zoom Player
itself (which has a separate update notification), resulting in a
double notification.

- The Mouse Wheel, Navigation Style, Information, Main, Stream Selection,
Media Scanner and Play History were showing the wrong number of text
lines which caused the list to appear slightly off-center.

- Pressing the "Auto-Scan System" button on the Audio Visualization
Adv. Options dialog page would trigger a crash with some Sonique
plugins preventing the scan from functioning. Now the crashing
plugin is skipped.

- Adding too many audio visualization plugins would cause the plugin
list to reset once Zoom Player was restarted.

- Disabling Smart Play by specifying a file extension to ignore would also
break Smart Play for URLs or files that did not contain a file extension.

- Adding a station using either the Station Manager's SHOUTcast station
browser or using the fullscreen station navigation interface did not
work if a non-english language pack was in use.

- In the Station list fullscreen navigation interface, the "Previous
Folder" function worked on the root level even though there was
no folder above it, resulting in an empty screen display.

- In the Station list fullscreen navigation interface, navigating
left from the functions page would go up a folder instead of
returning to the station list.

- When setting the thumbnail text to appear above the thumbnail, the
media library's category thumbnail display would improperly position
the thumbnail under the text.

- The media library category cache did not function properly, leading
to a slight performance hit when initially opening the media library.

- The Graph Information dialog did not display unicode text correctly.

- Fixed a few crashs when zpresampler.dll was not found.

- Cosmetic fixes to various dialogs.

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.

Feb 25, 2007 Version: 5.00 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 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.
