This 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. The source code is only about 1600 lines and only standard #include files were used. Also included in the attached zip file are some image files which are used for drawing the graphical media controls in the main window.
This player has the following features:
- Play back all formats of media files which can be played back by the Windows Media Player in your computer
- Depending on the file types specified by the user in zPlayer.ini file this player can be either audio only, video only or both.
- Video window is independent of other windows and, when maximized, increases the immersion of the user
- Graphical media controls similar to embedded Windows Media Player
- Forward, backward, pause, repeat, shuffle function
- Increase/decrease/mute sound volume
- Change folders and create playlist for all media files in that folder and its subfolders, and support for manually-made playlists
- Save play-back environment when terminating and resume that environment when restarting
- With one click, you can see internet search results for the file selected in playlist
- With a double-click, you can play back an item in the playlist
- Search strings in the playlist
- Option to see long file names including folder names
- Resize the playlist and video windows, and restore them to their default positions
- Very small footprint: very low CPU and memory usage, with only about 1MB when compiled
- You can even hide all the windows and manipulate the player with hotkeys only
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.

After I retired from active duty in 2002 I spent much time listening to music. First I started with CD's and LP's, then quickly moved on to mp3 files. I converted many of my CD's to mp3 and I collected many more from various sources which were freely available at the time. As the number of my mp3 files grew, I put them in folders according to their genres and my favorite classifications. I mainly used Windows Media Player to listen to them and I slowly began to dislike wmp because it had massive user interface while I just wanted to listen to music in the background while I was doing other work in the foreground, hopping between folders from time to time. It was the time I was beginning to learn AutoIt and I thought I should make my own player with AutoIt. Coming from a sales career with no experience in programming, it was not an easy task. Somehow, after about 2 years of learning and trying, I had my own audio player which worked with only hotkeys without any graphical interface. I gave it to some of my friends who were not as computer-savvy as I. They liked it but definitely wanted something to clcik with mouse. So I came up with very rude gui which took a form similar to what it is now.
The attached source files include one au3 file, one icon file and 14 jpg files. The jpg files are used for drawing a graphical player and are fileinstalled in @DocumentsCommonDir folder. This player uses WMPlayer.OCX as its engine and supports all audio file formats supported by wmp and additional codecs installed. I would like to thank @Bilgus for kind answers to my questions and would appreciate it if anyone could review the code and give me any suggestion. This player works for me, but I don't know whether the code is presentable as an example. I am posting this here with a hope to learn much from AutoIt community.

hello autoit team
please i need your help
i found that the youtube provide a way to get any video informations with this link
but it incoded i can not read it
can any one tell me how to decode that please?
Hello everyone. I need to convert any string to 3-digit decimal. It is possible to convert through online tools. Is there any way to do this in AutoIt.
For Example ;
8cdb3 = DECIMAL 056 099 100 098 051
Is it possible the conversion above by AutoIt? Thanks.
I found all the Mp3 encoders I have used to be tedious in that you have to encode your albums one at a time, you have to create output folders and select them. I wanted something where I can just dump a bunch of folders and select my Mp3 folder for the output. Nothing out there works like that, so I wrote my own script.
By default, it creates the output folders from the metadata. If metadata isn't present, it uses the source material to create the folder and track names.
It uses FFMpeg to do the actual encoding, but it was too large to include in the package, so it must be downloaded separately. When you open the program for the first time, you will see "FFMpeg Not Found!". Click that or the button to pull up a search Gui where it has links for you to download FFMpeg. Also, to keep file size down, I didn't include a compiled version (you guys know how to do that). The package includes an icon (if you want to use it), a user's guide, and a function flowchart (if you want to edit the script, this may help decipher it).
