1,915 downloadsThis file includes the source code for zPlayer, which is a stand-alone, simple, intuitive and easy-to-use, yet fully functional media player. I made this to suit my purpose and you can tweak it to your taste. zPlayer is powered by winmm.dll which is an integral part of Windows. This player uses only AutoIt standard UDFs and has no third party dependency. The compiled exe file, as attached hereto, has a hash value of SHA256: f2255c9c45843f721d428c158db2f160014d1f5f743c5b4f4df4dc831b764ae6. As of the release of this version, Windows Defender with the latest Security Intelligence update does not flag this file as a malware. Compiling the code yourself will alter the exe file's hash value and Windows Defender may falsely flag it as malware. This player has the following features: - This player is based on winmm.dll, not IE-embedded WMPlayer.ocx. - Play back all formats of digital media files as far as proper codecs are installed in your computer - Video window is independent of other windows. Minimal GUI for music. - Load files or folders for playback and save the playlist if a folder was loaded - User can manaually make their own playlist - Sort or shuffle the playlist - Forward, backward, pause, repeat function - A-B repeat function for the current file and function to repeat multiple files out of a large playlist - Increase/decrease/mute program sound volume - Save play-back environment when terminating a session and resume that environment in the next session - 'Resume playback' option for a file you left off in the middle of playback of a folder. Audio fade-in when playback is resumed - Playlist has context menu for Play this file, File properties, Search internet, Go to this folder and Remove from playlist - With a double-click, you can play back an item in the playlist - Search strings in the playlist - Hotkeys available for most of the functions - Play back audio CD, with most of the above features available for CD as well - Very small footprint: very low CPU and memory usage If you find an error, please download the latest version as most probably the error may have been corrected already. Otherwise I would appreciate it very much if you kindly let me know. Note: zPlayer is the name I used when I introduced the early version of this player in my blog back in early 2009 and, therefore, has nothing to do with the mobile media player of the same name which started marketing in 2015.
I recently bumped into winmm.dll and found that it was the resource file of Sound.au3 UDF for all of its audio functions. I was interested in learning its video funtions as well to find if it could replace WMPlayer.OCX in my zPlayer. I have been a bit dissatisfied with WMPlayer object because it required a resizing process for a simple toggle between play and pause. This made the video to flicker and it was annoying. That was the reason for going back to the earlier version of zPlayer, knowing that WMPlayer object embedded in IE may not be supported by Windows in the near future. Edit: Attached is a media player based on wimm.dll. Much of the time I spent to make this player was on video playback. I foresee that this player will ultimately be the future version of my zPlayer. I had a lot of fun working on this. And I have to say thank you to many of forum members for helping me out when I had difficulties. If an error is found, I would expect that you would kindly let me know. If you download the latest version, hopefully the error would have been corrected already.
