Version history / Release notes / Changelog

--- What's new in Zoom Player v15:

* Live YouTube stream support using the latest version of the 3DYD YouTube source and LAV Filters.

* New YouTube channel listing strategy (not enabled by default) which you can now enable through the Media Library category editor. The new strategy works by listing videos in a channel's "Uploads" playlist. The downside to this strategy is that some videos may not be ordered by Publish date. For this reason, 50 videos are requested instead of the usual 25 and these videos are then sorted by the plugin instead of just listing them as-is. The upside is that you get longer descriptions for the videos.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Audio) to control whether the Equalizer and Pre-Amp controls should process DTS/Dolby audio (and their sub-formats such as DTS-HD, Dolby Atmos, E-EAC, etc).
By default, these formats are not processed as they are intended for decoding by an external receiver over S/PDIF or BitStreaming.
However if you decode these formats on your PC, disabling this setting will allow the Equalizer and Pre-Amp controls to function.

* New Setting "Adv. Options / System" (disabled by default) to allow the Command & Control API to remotely control the PC's mouse cursor.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Controls) that lets you specify the number of milliseconds Zoom Player should wait after closing a streaming media before resuming operations.

* New setting (Adv. Options / System / Screen Saver & Capture) that controls whether playback should be paused before trying to capture a video frame. Please note that it's possible that some video renderers may not be able to capture a frame if the media is playing.

* New setting on the media library YouTube plugin to enable listing live streams. To playback live YouTube streams you must use the IFRAME player or use D3D YouTube Source filter v2 or newer.

* New setting on the media library YouTube plugin to use the maximum thumbnail resolution YouTube provides (now disabled by default).
In previous versions getting the maximum resolution thumbnail was the default behavior, however there are rare instances where the maximum resolution and extra bandwidth are merited.
Additionally, there is a YouTube bug that lists a URL for the maximum resolution thumbnail without the file actually being available, so this change works around this issue.

* The media library can now display a format icon for the new AV1, DTS:X and Dolby Atmos audio/video codecs.

* The Play History fullscreen navigation interface now lists the last play time (not just the date), the last play position and the full path to the currently highlighted entry.

* The Favorite media fullscreen navigation interface now shows the full path to the highlighted entry.

* New "Go" button on the station editor to make search practical without access to a keyboard.

* New "Close on Play" checkbox on the Advanced Playlist Control dialog to control whether the dialog remains open or closed after playing a new media from the dialog.

* New Smart Play profile for the "ADTS" streaming audio wrapper format.

* New Smart Play profile for the ".DSF" file format.

* New Smart Play profile for the "DSD" (Direct Stream Digital) codec.

* Zoom Player Command & Control API has been expanded: 1. New command to open a streaming URL. 2. New command to Get & Set the current playlist sorting order (Ascending/Descending). 3. New command to sort the playlist (by name, size, date, etc).

* Zoom Player Command & Control API has been expanded with support for remotely controlling the PC's mouse cursor. For additional security, this capability requires you to enable the new "Allow remote mouse control" setting.

* New "/SHOWOSD:[Text]" command line parameter used to show a pop-up OSD on an already running instance of Zoom Player.

+ Ctrl+"V" now works in the playlist editor's search box.

+ The GoTo time fullscreen navigation interface has been enhanced to work more intuitively and with less clicking required to reach the desired time.

+ The Media Library category editor has been restructured to make it easier to use when working with many categories.

+ Changed how information (text/icons) are aligned on the right side of fullscreen navigation interfaces so the information does not shift around when the selected line is changed.

+ Tweaked the list based fullscreen navigation interfaces to squeeze out a little more horizontal space.

+ The Torrents download plugin has been updated to support qBitTorrent API v2, requiring qBitTorrent v4.2 or newer, please upgrade.

+ You can now drag the meta-data edit window more easily by dragging from anywhere in the windows.

+ Newly created YouTube media library categories will no longer show a video icon overlay by default (as all content from YouTube is video).

+ YouTube changed their text encoding scheme which caused Zoom Player to show the encoding of certain characters instead of the actual characters.

+ Trying to open a navigation interface while in audio mode simply didn't do anything, now Zoom Player will automatically switch to media mode and show the navigation interface.

+ Trying to seek backward/forward on a live stream with no duration will no longer show an OSD message as if a seek was performed.

+ TheMovieDB scraper plugin will now scrape movies that do not contain a poster image.

+ The fullscreen navigation information interface no longer closes automatically when opening a new media file.

+ When safe mode is enabled, instead of completely hiding the main navigation interface's "System" sub-menu, now only the "Exit Zoom Player" entry is hidden.

+ The Next/Previous frame functions are now ignored when playing audio-only content (there was no real use for it and it caused weird behavior with some decoders).

+ Hovering with the mouse cursor over the timeline no longer pops up a "00:00" position hint when playing a live stream with no duration.

+ To prevent instability, if Zoom Player's options dialog is open, all API/Keyboard processing (for the main window) are now disabled.

+ Using the "fnTitleToClipboard" function with no media playing will now try to get the title from the currently highlighted playlist entry.

+ The "Close Navigator when opening a new file" setting now applies to the streaming fullscreen navigation interface. Previously it would always close the interface regardless of the setting.

+ Opening a streaming URL now closes the fullscreen navigation interface.

+ Extended the Command & Control API message 1870 to support passing a title along with the URL to stream.

+ When playing an MP3 with ID3v2 TAGs that contain multiple images, now the first embedded image is displayed instead of the last.

+ Right clicking a track in the playlist editor will now select the track less than 2 other tracks are currently selected.

- Rewrote the entire system that handles the currently selected audio device. Previously, if you were to disconnect an audio device (e.g. a BlueTooth headset), Zoom Player would switch to the default audio device, but when the the audio device was reconnected, Zoom Player would continue to use the default device instead of the previously selected device. Now Zoom Player always tries to use the previously selected device and only temporarily switches to the default device if the selected device is not currently available.

- A major bug that was introduced in v13.5 prevented the Equalizer and Pre-Amp controls from functioning when decoding audio using a filter
that outputs the WAVE_FORMAT_EXTENSIBLE" structure (Which LAV Audio
Decoder uses for most audio formats it decodes).

- Fix for a possible freeze when opening the media library.

- The default 16:10 skin was showing a 1px clear line to the right of the movie poster in jukebox mode.

- Streaming audio with non-English characters encoded in the stream's meta-data would sometimes display the wrong characters.

- Fixed an issue where pressing next track in a playlist containing an executable file would not stop playing the previous media track after executing the playlist entry, which also caused a cosmetic glitch in the playlist editor.

- Furiously Clicking the mouse's right button to open the context menu while a track was loading caused multiple context menus to appear on screen and could even lead to a crash in some cases.

- Under some rare conditions, Mouse Gesture actions could trigger without the left mouse button being held down.

- Unchecking "Limit 'Hot Corners' to fullscreen mode" caused issues trying to move the player windows in Audio Mode.

- Pressing DEL to erase the currently playing media will no longer prompt you to delete to recycle bin if the playing media is a URL.

- Stopped the two settings that control automatic switching between Audio and Media mode from working while the player is in fullscreen mode: Auto Switch to Audio Mode when a Media File does not contain a Video Stream Auto Switch to Media Mode when a Media File contains a Video Stream

- Deleting the active entry in the playlist editor (orange highlight when using the default onyx skin), did not reset the active entry if that track wasn't currently playing.

- Using the "fnPLEditMetaData" function (for example using the command line "/func:fnPLEditMetaData" parameter) several times would cause multiple windows to appear.

- The internal screen saver no longer activates if a track is currently in the process of loading or if an error dialog is currently visible.

- Using the Advanced Playlist Control to move items to the top or bottom while a media was playing messed up the playlist active item display as well as the ID3/TAG on-screen information.

- When the media library displayed a movie with no poster in JukeBox mode, the poster area showed random junk.

- Trying to switch to Audio or DVD modes while a media was in the process of...

Zoom Player is a very good 32 bit Windows player, reliable, quite fast (not as MPC-HC), quite light-weight. Full of customizations, lots of settings, no bugs, great developer. The Smart Play filter system is a good plus for new users. Works perfectly with madVR video renderer and MPC Wasapi audio renderer. To improve yet the player, IMHO, the developer should implement Avisynth, Vapoursynth and some external extensions like for MPDN.NET or MPV. All in all, a good player; the price is good, even if I must say that I prefer MPC-HC 'cause it's lighter, faster and a bit more reliable yet.

Review by Ziggy1978 on Nov 10, 2019 Version: 15.2 RC2 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 8/10 Overall: 9/10

Price is roughly usd.40 (1 year free upgrades). It seems though one still needs another player:
- DVD from external drive : doesn't work, VLC no problem
- BluRay from internal drive: error "Unable to play [00000.m2ts]" bla bla, VLC no problem
- Unable to customize interface, also here, VLC no problem
- Toolbar (Control bar), when visible, is floating. One should hit shift-spacebar to bring up the control bar.
- Things may unexpectedly not be working anymore and you need to spend time on finding find the solutions
(e.g. playing a video, click on slow motion button, nothing changes, video goes on playing at normal speed,
or suddenly there is no sound. I didn't change anything. VLC plays the video -with- sound, so one has to spent time on checking)

All kinds of little things, hence one needs another player to play the stuff Zoom Player can't.
