What's New:

Added the latest beta to the download links. Here is the changelog:

  • Support for registering the GXF, MXF media exchange formats file extensions.
  • New Smart Play profiles for GFX, MXF, Motion JPEG2000 and DVCPro formats.
  • Clicking on the fullscreen navigation interfaces title area now navigates to the previous interface (like using the navigate "left" function).
    • The current navigation icon is now drawn next to the fullscreen navigation interface's title.
    • Clicking the "Main" fullscreen navigation interface now toggles back and forth between the function page and the navigation interface selection index.
    • New "Main" entry on the main fullscreen navigation interface functions page that returns to the main navigation interface selection index.
    • The fullscreen virtual-keyboard navigation interface's text box can now be clicked to move the text-caret to the clicked position in the text.
    • The fullscreen navigation skinning code has been enhanced to control whether navigation arrows are displayed on each navigator interface.
    • The fullscreen navigation skinning code has been enhanced to allow specifying a specific file for each navigation icon. Navigation icon sizes are no longer fixed at 160x160 pixels (source resolution).
    • New setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation / Settings) to pre-load navigation graphics, improving load time at the cost of additional memory usage.
    • New setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation / Customization) to prevent the navigation icon from being displayed next to the title text.
    • New setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation / Customization) to prevent the navigation title from being displayed.
    • New skin-script code specifying the fullscreen navigation interfaces' icon position and scale next to the title text.

Changes:

  • Several fullscreen navigation customization features have been moved from other pages to the new customization page on the advanced options dialog.
  • Multiple fullscreen navigation skin files can now reside in the same folder, allowing graphical element re-use for a smaller distribution.
  • All settings on the fullscreen navigation customization options dialog page are now updated in real time, making it much simpler to customize the fullscreen navigation interfaces.
  • Using the fullscreen navigation's navigation skin selection interface now updates the navigation skin as soon as you highlight a skin entry.

    Fixes:

  • Image rotation was completely broken (did nothing) in v9.2.

  • Hardened the language-pack parsing code to better handle several types of translation errors.
  • The "DefaultSettings.exe" application that resets Zoom Player's settings to their default values did not work with the Steam Edition of Zoom Player.
  • Fixed several issues related to conflicts between assigned double-click and single-click mouse functions, like the inability to exit fullscreen mode when double-click is set to switch to "Fullscreen on/off" and single click set to "Move Video / Window".
