Zoom Player Latest Version..13/09/2023

V.17.2 / 18 Beta 2

Code: Select all

- New 

* A completely new IPTV (streaming live TV and VOD) interface (Adv. Options
/ Playback / IPTV) with support for EPG (Electronic Program Guide),
Channel Grouping and many customization options.

Some features (icons, automated EPG/M3U downloads, etc) are still a work
in progress and are not part of this beta.

* New setting (enabled by default) to automatically hide the control bar
when clicking the video area, making it much easier to quickly hide
the control bar.

* You can now edit the last play time and date directly from the media
library meta-data editor.

Fixes :

- Using unicode characters in the ISO Auto-Mount command would not save
the path properly after restarting Zoom Player.

- The Advanced Options "System Sounds" and "Audio" sections did not scroll
smoothly when using the scroll bar.

Zoom Player Latest Version..27/09/2023

- 17.2 / 18 Beta 4

Code: Select all

The IPTV auto-updating EPG and Stream List downloads can now handle
".zip" and ".gz" archive URLs (e.g. "https://website.com/epg.zip").

* New Filter EPG feature on the IPTV interface.

* New IPTV setting (Adv. Options / Playback / IPTV) that controls the
EPG font size.

* New IPTV setting (Adv. Options / Playback / IPTV) to control whether
the EPG filter checks program description or only the program's title.

* New "Custom Action" button on the main window (near the top-left) that
allows you to set any standard Zoom Player function to the button.

By default this button opens the new IPTV interface.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface) that allows you to assign a
function to the new "Custom Action" button.

Fixes :

- The IPTV interface should feel a bit smoother (less flickering).

- In the media library's category editor, specifying a category name
containing unicode characters would not highlight the entry in
the category list after clicking.

- Media Title containing certain unicode characters (e.g. emoji) did
not show when loading some playlist formats (m3u, asx, b4s, wpl).

Latest version
17.2 / 18 RC1 (November 15, 2023)

--- What's new in Zoom Player v18 release candidate 1:
New :

* Opening the IPTV interface for the first time now offers you the option
to automatically download free, child-friendly, publicly available IPTV
channels from around the world through the Free-TV project:
github.com
GitHub - Free-TV/IPTV: M3U Playlist for free TV channels
M3U Playlist for free TV channels. Contribute to Free-TV/IPTV development by creating an account on GitHub.
github.com github.com

* Using the "Play Stream" button on the IPTV interface will no longer try
to play an EPG program and will always try to play the channel live.

* New "Play Program" button on the IPTV interface. The "Play Program"
button is used to play archived IPTV programs. If the channel does not
support archive playback or tif he selected program is no longer
(or not yet) archived, the "Play Program" button will remain disabled.

* New "Add Free Channels" button (Adv. Options / Playback / IPTV) that
adds free, child-friendly, publicly available IPTV channels from around
the world through the Free-TV project.

* You can now control outdated EPG programs background colors
(Adv. Options / Playback / IPTV), making it easier to distinguish
which programs have already aired.

* Support for more IPTV Archive playback schemes.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / IPTV) to specify the symbol
used to highlight archive channels in the IPTV stream list.
Fixes :

- No longer marking IPTV channels as archive if their "catchup-days"
value is "0".

- That Playlist Editor's search box did not support unicode characters.

- You can now use Ctrl+V to paste Unicode text into the Playlist Editor's
search box (including special characters such as Emoji).

- Fixed a bug that could cause Zoom Player to freeze when trying to
play YouTube URLs containing a space character after the URL.
--- What's new in Zoom Player v18 beta 10:
New :

* Support for IPTV Archive playback. For channels that support it,
double-click the program to start playing it. You can easily identify
Archive supporting channels by the icon next to their name.

There are multiple implementations of IPTV Archive support and I did
my best to make sure all were covered, but if something is not working
as intended, let me know on Zoom Player's sub-reddit.

* New IPTV Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / IPTV) that clears the
playlist before streaming. This setting is enabled by default,
disabling it adds the channel to the playlist and play it without
clearing the playlist.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Playlist) to prevent embedded
playlists (playlist files within playlist files) from loading when
Zoom Player loads a playlist. This setting is enabled by default as
embedded playlist can lead to unfortunate infinite-loops cases and
other stability problems.
Change :

+ Playing media from the Advanced Playlist Control now ensures the newly
played item is visible in the Playlist Editor.

+ I Didn't like the behavior of the new setting (enabled by default)
that automatically hide the control bar when clicking the video area.
What annoyed me was that it was canceling my action, so if I wanted
to pause the video, it would ignore the pause action and just hide
the control bar. Now I adjusted this feature to hide the control bar
and not block the intended action.
Fixes :

- Fixed a bug that caused the IPTV caches to get wiped clear when Zoom
Player was pruning the media library thumbnail and meta-data cache.

- Playing an entry from the Advanced Playlist Control interface no longer
loses the entry's selection.
--- What's new in Zoom Player v18 beta 9:
New :

* Added a clock to the top of the IPTV's Electronic Program Guide section.

* Added a button to clear the IPTV channel logo cache (Adv. Options /
Playback / IPTV). Clearing the logo cache forces Zoom Player to
re-download the channel icons.
Change :

+ If an IPTV channel doesn't have a logo or ID in the M3U playlist file,
Zoom Player now tries to use an icon from the EPG XML file based
on the channel name (or partial name) and caches the logo so it shows
even if you keep the EPG panel closed.

+ IPTV Stream Channel -> EPG matching by Channel name (when a Channel ID
is not present) now works when the EPG contains multiple channel names
for the same channel.

+ IPTV Stream Channel -> EPG matching by Channel name (when a Channel ID
is not present) now matches even if there is an uppercase/lowercase
mismatch in the name or the EPG contains only a partial name.

+ IPTV Stream Channel -> EPG matching by Channel name is now automatic if
no EPG data was found using the Channel's ID.

+ The IPTV section of the options dialog is now a lot more informative
with regards to the Playlist/EPG download status (or failure).

+ Closing and re-opening the IPTV interface will now maintain the
EPG listing.
Fixes :

- Refreshing the IPTV list after a new Playlist or EPG finished downloading
should now maintain open groups and EPG listing.

- Fixed a bug that prevented some IPTV channel logo from saving properly
and may have even caused the wrong icon to show up for some channels.

- The IPTV Stream list did not display correctly if specifying a DPI value
higher than 100% in Zoom Player's options.
--- What's new in Zoom Player v18 beta 8:
New :

* New Wakeup on LAN feature (Adv. Options / System) that allows you to
turn on PCs. This feature is extremely useful when using NAS (Network
Attached Storage) devices as your source for the media and you only
want to turn them on when using Zoom Player.

With this new feature, you can specify multiple MAC addresses to wake
several PCs and you can trigger the wake-up action with a choice of
conditions such as:

1. When starting Zoom Player
2. When opening the Media Library
3. When opening the File Navigator

If there are other use-cases where you would want Zoom Player to
wake-up remote PCs, let me know.

* New button on the IPTV Interface to toggle 50% window transparency.

* New IPTV setting to merge duplicate channels. This can be useful
if you're using multiple EPG files/links that contain EPG info
on the same channel.

* New IPTV setting (enabled by default) to keep the IPTV interface
window on top of other windows and applications while Zoom Player
is in fullscreen mode.

* New IPTV setting to control the screen ratio between the stream list
and the EPG. The default value is 1:1.5 (Making the EPG 150% wider
than the stream list).

* If an IPTV channel doesn't have a logo in the M3U playlist file,
Zoom Player now tries to use an icon from the EPG XML file and
caches the logo so it shows even if you keep the EPG panel closed.
Change :

+ To prevent distracting confirmation messages popping up, the IPTV
interface no longer prompts you to update the list once an IPTV M3U
playlist or XML EPG finished downloading, instead it will enable a
refresh button which you can click at your leisure.

+ Enhanced IPTV stream list keyboard navigation.

+ When opening the IPTV interface with the EPG hidden, the EPG data will
not load until the EPG section is opened which results in the IPTV
interface becoming accessible faster.

+ When loading IPTV playlists, if a channel does not contain ID
information, Zoom Player will try to match EPG entries based on
the channel name instead.

+ IPTV channel logos should appear faster if there are broken links in
the M3U playlist file.

+ Closing and opening the IPTV interface window now restores the previously
opened group layout.
Fixes :

- Resizing the IPTV interface window could leave trails on screen until
the stream list was scrolled.

- Right clicking a history entry and selecting "copy" in the playback
history interface returned a jumble result when copying links.

- The scroll bar on the description section of the IPTV program information
dialog accessible by right-clicking an EPG program did not show/hide
properly based on the window size.
--- What's new in Zoom Player v18 beta 7:
New :

* You can now easily multiply Zoom Player's windowed skin resolution
from the skin selection dialog (press "N" to open) to better match
Zoom Player's skin to your monitor's resolution.

* You can now time-shift IPTV channels in the EPG by right-clicking an
EPG entry.

* New IPTV Safe mode setting (Adv. Options / Playback / IPTV) that
blocks access to Hiding Groups, Adding/Modifying favorites and
EPG Time Shifting.
Change :

+ Zoom Player will load slightly faster when using a multiplied
resolution skin.

+ Zoom Player's title text now scrolls if there is no room to show
the entire text.
Fixes :

- Filtering the media library by Genre stopped working.
--- What's new in Zoom Player v18 beta 6:
New :

* This feature has been requested by many. The ability to scale
Zoom Player's skinned windows to make them easier to use on
4K and 8K displays:

New Setting (Adv. Options / System) that allows you to resize
the current windowed skin by 200-800%. Please note that this
setting may not work well with some older Zoom Player skins.

* New button added to the IPTV interface that allows you to toggle
the EPG display on and off.

* New IPTV setting (Adv. Options / Playback / IPTV) to hide old EPG
entries (programs that have already aired).

* New Search feature in the media library category editor.
Change :

+ Redesigned the media library category editor layout. Hopefully it's
clearer and easier to work with.

+ Pressing ESC with the player window in focus now closes the IPTV
interface window.

+ Pressing ESC now closes the "Patterns" interface instead of having
to cycle through every pattern.
Fixes :

- You can no longer set an IPTV program start notification or switching
to the live stream if the EPG entry is older than the current time
(has already finished airing).

- The IPTV notification message before a program starts will now remain
visible for several more seconds.

- Loading M3U playlists containing links to ot...

Latest version
18 / 19.0 Beta 2 (January 24, 2024)

--- What's new in Zoom Player v19 beta 2:

New :

* Running Zoom Player on a fresh install will now asks if you would
like to enable "Performance Mode".

Choosing "Yes" does two things:

1. Enables D3D11 hardware accelerated video decoding in LAV Filters,
a requirement for smooth 4K video playback.

2. Sets the Video Renderer to MadVR, enabling HDR video support,
high quality video scaling, hardware accelerated subtitle
rendering and smoother motion.

Both settings can be modified in the advanced options dialog:
Adv. Options / Playback / Video

* A new "Help" section has been added to the right-click menu. The new
help section can quickly bring up the keyboard shortcut list or quick
usage guides for many of Zoom Player's popular interfaces.

* New keyboard macros to toggle libVLC playback:
Alt+"6" - Toggle libVLC IPTV playback (enabled/disabled)
Alt+"7" - Toggle libVLC BluRay playback (enabled/disabled)
Alt+"8" - Toggle libVLC Media file playback (enabled/disabled)
Alt+"9" - Toggle libVLC Streaming playback (enabled/disabled)

These toggles still require that you re-open the playing media
to take affect.

* The right-click menu has been extended with a new "Help" section.
The help section provides quick access to the keyboard shortcut list
and quick usage guides for most of Zoom Player's interfaces.

* The Play History dialog (Alt+"H") has gotten a face-lift, an option
whether to clear the playlist when playing from history, a button
that automatically sets the column sizes based on the current window
size and you can drag the play history window with the mouse by
clicking in any empty space.

* New "/infojson" command line parameter that can be used to query
a running instance of Zoom Player for information. The results
are returned in the windows clipboard as a UTF8 encoded JSON string.

This feature can be used in combination with Window's Powershell to
monitor and control Zoom Player entirely through the command line,
without requiring a TCP/IP connection to access the more advanced API.

Special characters are encoding using standard JSON character encoding.

If no additional parameters are specified, all fields are returned.
To get specific results, you can use a combination of one or more of
the following:

PlayState - A number representing the current play state where
0 : Closed
1 : Stopped
2 : Paused
3 : Playing

MediaName - UTF8 string containing the playing file name or URL.

Title - UTF8 string containing the playing media's title.

Position - The playing position in seconds.

Duration - The playing duration in seconds.

PlayIndex - The current playlist play index.

Playlist - UTF8 string containing the current playlist, each media
entry is specified as a part of a JSON array.

AudTrack - The current audio track number.

SubTrack - The current subtitle track number.

Example to get the playing media name, title, duration and position:
zplayer.exe /infojson:MediaName,Title,Duration,Position
Change :

+ The keyboard shortcuts list (F1 keyboard shortcut) is now a single
dialog which opens much faster and is no longer a part of the options
dialog which takes longer to open.

+ The "Toggle Control Bar" right-click menu option has been re-located
to the menu's root level.

+ If the playing media has only one audio track, it will no longer
be listed in the Stream Selection section of the right-click menu.

+ If MadVR is selected as the Video Renderer without being installed,
Zoom Player now notifies you and falls back to the EVR renderer.
Fixes :

- A bug caused some information dialogs to show the information in
the window's title and the actual title in the windows body.

- Fixed several libVLC related bugs,

- What's new in Zoom Player v19 beta 3:

New :

* You can now use libVLC to cast the playing video to supported ChromeCast
devices. All you need to do is open "Adv. Options / Playback / libVLC" and
scan for the ChromeCast device. Any content played through the libVLC engine
will now display on the selected device. Please consider that it can take a
few seconds longer to open media files for casting.

* MPC-VR can now be selected as a Video Renderer for media playback. It is
not fully supported (subtitles, pixel-shaders and other unique features
for the video renderer will not work presently.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Control) that allows you to rollback
the current play position when resuming playback from the Pause state. This
feature is useful if you have an external receiver that requires a few
seconds to restore the audio when playback resumes.
Change :

+ If you previously used as Custom Video Renderer for media playback, you must
re-select the custom option (Adv. Options / Playback / Video).

+ Using the Next/Previous Track features now ensures the newly loaded track
is visible in the playlist editor.

+ Cleaned up some dialogs that had elements that were too close together,
especially under Windows 11.
Fixes :

- Scraping TheMusicDB should work once again.

- When Zoom Player's DSP filter is unable to connect to the audio renderer,
the DSP filter is now removed so Smart Play will not fail (fallback to
Microsoft's method of choosing components can be unstable), increasing
overall stability for badly authored media files.

- Fixed a bug that caused the media library background image to be overlaid
twice with a slight offset, slowing down opening a folder in the media
library a little bit and causing visual ghosting effects (was really hard
to see with the default background image).

Zoom Player Latest Version..22/02/2024

- v. 19.0 Beta 4

Code: Select all

- The playlist editor has received support for multiple playlists that you can instantly switch between. Multiple playlists are loaded in a background thread so even if you use massive playlists with 1000's of items, it should not have much of an impact Zoom Player's load and close time performance.
- Press the new multi-playlist button on the playlist editor (top left corner) to add the current playlist, a playlist from a file or manage the multiple playlists (remove, rename, reorder).

- New "Cast to Device" feature on the main right-click menu and
available as a keyboard shortcut (Shift+"/") that allows you to
Cast the currently playing media to a Chromecast compatible
device. This feature does requires libVLC is installed but does
not require you to play the current media with libVLC (the
playback engines automatically switch as the media is casted).

- New "1510" Zoom Player API message that is triggered when using
next/previous chapter. Returns the chapter's position in seconds

Fixes :
- Fixed a bug that caused the background image to show for a split-
second when dragging & dropping a media file on top of the player
window.
