What's new

v14.5.1450 [21 Jan 2019]
- Extended video streaming support for more web sites.
- Automatic fullscreen navigation skin switching based on the display's aspect ratio.
- TheMovieDB.org media library scraping plugin has been enhanced and can now return non-english meta-data (texts and images).
- The playlist editor (when using the default Onyx skin or the bundled Alba skin) now draws alternating line highlights making the playlist easier to track visually.
- The playlist editor's right-click menu now features Colorize actions that let you easily color-code track(s) text and background colors.
- New "PlayListData/Background2" skin script parameter that specifies the alternating playlist editor line highlight color.
- New "Thumb rendering threads" setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation / Thumb View) to specify the number of CPU threads used to render the thumbview display.
- New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback) that automatically tries to use the YouTube IFRAME player if DirectShow playback of a YouTube stream fails.
- New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Controls).
- New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / Controls) to mute the audio when enabling Slow Motion or Fast Play.
- New Setting (Adv. Options / Fullscreen Navigation / Customization) to force the navigation list or thumb view to maximum width.
- New "Support folders as playlist entries" Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Playlist). This setting was previously hardcoded and is still enabled by default to support advanced playlist functionality.
- The advanced playlist control (accessible through the playlist editor or by pressing "J") now shows the number of items remaining in the playlist as the search filters the playlist.
- New "Refresh" option (Media Library Category Editor / Configure Category) for YouTube channels and RSS Streams that refreshes the channel's Name & Thumbnail.
- New "exVidMoveHorz" and "exVidMoveVert" extended functions that move the video area (fullscreen) or player window (when not in fullscreen) horizontally and vertically.
- New "fnToggleOverlayCover" function to toggle the "Video covers entire display area" setting on and off.
- Optimized the Media Library's thumbnail drawing code, increasing update speed and smoothness.
- The Maximum number of scraping threads used by the media library has increased from 8 to 16.
- The advanced playlist control's filter search was searching the entire playlist on each letter pressed, this caused a sluggish user experience when dealing with very larger playlists (over 30,000 entries).
- When a media library scraped movie did not contain a backdrop image, the default background image is now used instead of a black screen.
- Zoom Player now does a better job at extracting album art images from media files if the JPEG image contains junk in front of the actual image.
- The Install Center now includes two configuration profiles for the 3DYD YouTube Source filter that enable HD/4K streaming.
- Visualization are now supported when the 3DYD YouTube Source filter is set to "audio only" output.
- The Command & Control API now notifies when subtitles are enabled/disabled when using the "fnToggleSub" and "fnDisableDVDsub" functions.
- Updated the PNG and zLib libraries to newer versions.
- TheAudioDB.com scraper plugin is now functional again after the API used by the site moved to encrypted communication (https), breaking backward compatibility.
- TheAudioDB.com media library scraper can now better handle artist names containing the "-" character, for example "Alt-J - This Is All Yours" will now properly scrape.
- Starting Zoom Player with the "Do not check if a file exists when adding to the playlist" setting enabled no longer triggers spun-down HDD drives to spin-up.
- The GuardDog feature tried to restart Zoom Player if Zoom Player's load time was taking too long (due to HDD drive spin-ups or a network drive reconnection), from now the guard dog feature will only start functioning once Zoom Player has finished loading.
- When viewing the media library's TV/Movie in JukeBox mode, the backdrop images was not scaled and cropped properly on non-16:9 displays (e.g. 1920x1200 monitor) leaving black bars instead of filling with the backdrop.
- Kinetic scrolling in the media library did not work well using a mouse cursor, stopping when attempting to scroll multiple times while the kinetic movement was still in mid process.
- Fixed a possible TheMovieDB.org scraper freeze (could have caused slow-downs on exit or more rarely, a player freeze) when used in combination with the "Scrape using media derived title (instead of file name)" category setting.
- The Media Library's Jukebox mode would not enable if the only file in the folder was a playlist.

v12.7.1270 [1 Dec 2016]
- New Export/Import feature that saves all of Zoom Player's settings, profiles and configuration files to a single ZIP archive and can later on restore Zoom Player's settings from within Zoom Player itself.
- The smart play source filter configuration dialog now allows you to specify a partial URL instead (or in combination) with file extensions, allowing you to setup custom filters based on the site's URL.
- Two new category types have been introduced "TV Shows" and "Movies".
- The media library filter icons that appear under the category list are now accessible using the keyboard by pressing the up or down arrow keys on the first/last category entry.
- The playlist editor and the playlist full screen navigation interface now show the current play position next to the actively playing track.
