Some of the features began to accumilate so I decided to release an open beta.


If the board still shows code as black on blue, then highlight the text with the mouse.


Here's the change list:
Code:
Code:
* You can now rename DVD Bookmarks from within the Bookmark editor.

 * You can now select which bookmark is Auto-Loaded on play rather
   than having the first book mark loaded.  The selection is done
   through the Bookmark editor.  You can also do this manually by
   adding "AutoLoad." to the file name of a previous bookmark.
   Make sure only to have this "tag" on file per directory.

 * As requested, an Eject button.  You can eject more than just
   CDs, basically any removable media.  You can specify which
   drive to eject on the Options->Values dialog.

 * New pattern mode, pressing Shift+"P" cycles through the various
   pattern modes.

 * Expanded the "zplayer.zdf" examples to cover all the video
   relevant settings used by DivX 3.11 and DivX 4.xx

 * Few more skinned Control Bar buttons.

Talk about great support...

Someone puts in a request... 1/2 day later it's in the product!


:)


Keep up the good work!


I'll see if I can do some testing on the PowerDVD4.0 filters when I get home.

Blight,


I spend 1/2 a day playing with v2.1 yesterday trying to get AC3 passthru. I enabled DirectShow navigation but there was not change. Actually, the only change was that WinDVD lost its ability to do passthru as well so I had to re-install to recover to the original state.


Otherwise, I really enjoyed using your player regardless the above (important) problem.


I am using W2K with Radeon VE and DeltaDio sound card. I wish to use PowerDVD video filter and WinDVD audio.


Congratulation to your excellent (and free) contribution.

Guys, I am just a newbie, so take my question as a very stupid one, if you like.


For Radeon Users, I thought that


- ATI 5.0 has the best picture quality, lacking of SPDIF passthrough

- WinDVD has very good picture quality, enabling SPDIF passthrough

- PowerDvd 3.0 has the worst picture quality, and according to some has the best sound quality


see the thread attached
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...0&pagenumber=1


I have personally tested the above with regards to PQ, (I have WindosXP Pro, Radeon AIW and Pentium 1Ghz 100Mhz FSB), no tweaking, installation straight out of the box with no registry changes. I feel strongly about the inferiority of PowerDVD (tearing in the picture in fast moving images).


Cannot comment on the sound quality yet, as I have not hooked up my Arcam AVR100 to the HTPC yet.


Why on earth would you want to use the PowerDvd video filters and the WinDVD audio ones?


I am sure I am missing something... :confused:


Keep up the good work Blight! Love your work!

gnollo, things change quickly in the HTPC world. PowerDVD 4.0 is about to be released and it has a new video engine that supposedly is vastly improved. PowerDVD's audio filters apparently do not allow direct access to SPDIF pass-thru so do not work with ZoomPlayer. WinDVD is pretty much the only choice, although people say that the audio in WinDVD 3 is also improved.
