Announcing Zoom Player v9.1.0

*** Posted with the explicit permission of AVSForum.com ***

--- Download:
http://inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_download.shtml

--- What's new in Zoom Player v9.1.0:
Code:
  * The left mouse click can now be set to "Mouse Gestures".

  * You can now assign 4 mouse gestures (up/down/left/right) when gesturing
    with the mouse cursor while holding down the left mouse button or by
    swiping a finger on touch displays a forth of the way across the screen.
    
    By default the assigned functions are:
    Left  : Medium seek backward
    Right : Medium seek forward
    Up    : Previous Track
    Down  : Next Track
    
    All gestures can be assigned a custom function in the MAX version.
    
  * xySubFilter support for full resolution subtitle rendering when playing
    lower resolution video content.
    
    MadVR must be used as the video renderer for xySubFilter to function.
    
    Please note that the current version of xySubFilter may break ffdshow
    subtitle rendering if the xySubFilter filter is registered.

  * The XInput (XBOX360 and compatible controllers) interface can now assign
    Zoom-in and Zoom-out functions to the left and right Trigger buttons.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Control Bar / Timeline Area)
    that displays chapter points on the timeline.  When the mouse hovers over
    a chapter point, a pop-up shows the chapter name.
    
    This feature requires a skin that includes additional chapter-point
    graphical elements.  The Onyx and Alba skins include this support.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / System / Screen Saver) to always disable the
    windows screen saver and monitor powerdown while Zoom Player is running.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Mouse) that enables the
    Mouse's middle click (wheel click) to reset DirectShow Zooming.

  * New Settings (Adv. Options / Interface / Mouse) that enable the
    Mouse's left click combined with holding either the Alt or Ctrl keys
    to pan the DirectShow Zoomed video (panning is currently limited to
    the EVR video renderer).

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Mouse Wheel) that allows the
    DirectShow Zoom In/Out functions to be assigned to the mouse wheel.

  * New extended "exDirectShowZoom" function used to specify a zoom-in
    factor when using a DirectShow video renderer.  Unlike standard
    Zoom-in, DirectShow based zooming works even in windowed mode.

  * New "fnDSZoomIn" and "fnDSZoomOut" functions that Zoom into and out
    of the video area when using a DirectShow video renderer. Unlike 
    standard Zoom-in, DirectShow based zooming works even in windowed
    mode.

  * New Comm API message #1705 notifying of a subtitle stream change.

  * New Comm API message #1605 notifying of an audio stream change.

  * New "TimelineChapters" and "TimelineCBarChapters" skin scripting
    functions used to specify coordinates for the timeline chapter marks.

  + Comm API message #1702 (get subtitle stream names),  only worked
    in DVD mode. It now works for media mode subtitle steams as well.

  + The 'Current Position' is now horizontally centered in the chapter editor.

  + The font size used when creating contact sheets was too small, making the
    text unreadable when creating lower resolution contract sheet images.

  + Restored subtitle compatibility with the latest version of ffdshow.
    Using the ffdshow subtitle rendering option should now work.

  - Playing media files with both embedded and external subtitle tracks
    with the embedded subtitle tracks set as both not-default and not-forced,
    the next subtitle track function would require several tries to properly
    show the correct subtitle track and at times, the OSD pop-up may have shown
    the wrong active subtitle track name.

  - Adding a chapter point to a media file would list the new chapter
    in the wrong order within the chapter editor.

  - Removing chapters using the chapter editor did not prompt to
    erase the chapter files when all chapters were removed, causing
    the chapters to re-appear after re-loading the media.

  - Using the next/previous chapter buttons would pop an action OSD
    containing character encoding instead of the actual character.
    For example "&comma" instead of ",".

  - The 'Show OSD filename when opening a new file' setting stopped working.
    
  - Detaching the Control Bar when using MadVR as the video renderer
    would cause the control bar to appear twice under certain circumstances.

  - Setting the control bar to appear at the top/bottom of the screen
    instead of the video area would not work when using MadVR as the
    video renderer.

  - Disabling the "Auto Play" setting broke the "Automatically restore the
    last media position on replay" feature.

  - With "Auto-Size User Interface to fit Source Video Resolution (on load)"
    and "Limit Auto-Size to User Interface Height" settings enabled, playing
    a video while fullscreen and then exiting fullscreen would have resulted
    in a window the same size as the source video's full resolution instead of
    only adjusting the height to compensate for the aspect ratio.

  - Searching for some buttons using the options dialog's search feature
    would prevent the searched buttons from being clicked until the search
    dialog was closed first.

  - Enabling the 'Always start with media subtitles hidden' setting would
    cause a 'Play' OSD to pop-up when playing a media file containing
    subtitles.

  - The current time and date did not appear on any fullscreen navigation
    interface based on the virtual keyboard (Rename, New Folder, etc).

Zoom Player is a DirectShow player. You can use whatever DirectShow filter you like. By default it uses LAV Audio Decoder for DD/DD+/TrueHD and DTS(-HD MA/HR). So it can bitstream these audio formats and can decode them to multichannel LPCM (with the help of dtsdecoderdll.dll).

Just FYI, if you are using MadVR renderer in FSE mode with ZP 9.1...

There is a bug in 9.1 that drops MadVR into Windowed mode from FSE mode when the Control Bar is displayed. This may only affect Nvidia users as one AMD user reported no issues on Inmatrix support forums.

We're trying to replicate this issue and can't so far on both my own and chris's (QA lead) nvidia systems.

If anyone can reproduce the issue where the control bar causes a drop out of FSE, I would be interested in the details.

hammerdwn:
Sure thing! we're improving the 'tick' color so it's easier to see behind the time text for v9.1.1 (coming soon).

We isolated and fixed the MadVR FSE bug, you can find pre-release v9.2 builds on the ZP forum.

hammerdwn:
The latest build also improves the chapter-point tick-color.

With the feature that makes chapters visible in the timeline is there a way to incorporate colored blocks on the timeline for .cut files like is done with .xml files in Recorded TV HD commercial break viewer?

AVG doesn't like the open-candy 3rd party installer on the free version. It is not included in the PRO/MAX versions.

Tyborg:
It's possible in theory, I'm not really sure if many people are using the scenecut feature to make it a high priority feature.

I can understand if not a high priority feature, but this would be my mecca. Is it possible to dig into the skinning documentation and do it myself or is this info not exposed to the current skins?

Where on the product website does it disclose/identify which versions are infected/contain malware or third party software which a potential customer may not want and for which this information could be used to make an informed purchase decision????

I have/had a paid license, but avoid the product nowadays because of unwanted software sneaking onto my machine.

I think you are making an unjustified stretch of "which versions contain third party software" to "which versions are infected with malware"


I have/had a paid license for years and use the current version everyday and love it.

Perhaps, but the question stands. Apparently virus/malware companies think zoom player contans unwanted/dangerous components.
Furthermore-what third party software is installed and in which editions of the program?
Where is this information disclosed?

There is nothing forced on you. You just get a page on the installer that offers you to install a third party app, it's completely optional.

However, always download from Inmatrix.com official links, there are some very sneaky download sites (download.com for instance) that use their own "downloader" tool (you can tell because it's usually under 1mb) that injects really bad things without any notification.

We contact these sites to ask them to stop this practice, but it seems it's becoming really prevalent in the industry.

Tyborg:
It would require some code changes. The problem also relies in the fact that the scenecut feature offers more than just "cuts", so it may be a bit complex to show all the commands on the timeline.

You still didnt answer the question-what third party software is included for each of the versions and where is that disclosed on your website?
A direct answer would be nice.

You must have an axe to grind.


He already disclosed that the installer of only the free version offers 3rd party software that is optional. This is common practice and I don't recall seeing it disclosed on other websites prior to downloading their installer, Java comes to mind. The paid versions don't have it.


You may be referring to the install center of all versions which downloads up to date decoders/splitter/renderers for you and allows you to see and uncheck anything you don't want. The install center info is posted on the download page along with a video.


If you are looking for this information you can clearly see it during the install process, if you blindly click ok without reading anything on install screens then you would be unaware of what was installed or downloaded.

No axe to grind, just expecting a specific direct answer to my question, not one that avoids a direct answer. I wasn't sure if the paid versions installed third party apps.

You have to be very careful nowadays. Almost to the point of being paranoid.....
You would be shocked what software publishers would include to make a buck or 2 on the back side of the transaction.

If i ask if you can paint my car red, and the answer I get back is: Yes we will put some paint on your car-that is not an acceptable answer. Would you pay that person to paint your car?

The paid versions do not include any monetization (such as 3rd party optional packages).

The Install Center components do not include any monetization.

Only the free version includes the open-candy platform for monetization and is completely optional.

I hope that's clear enough.
