MediaBox
« on: December 15, 2016, 06:01:39 pm »
MediaBox

Is a GDImage/WinLIFT 64-bit application to play audio, video, and images, using Drag and Drop of individual or multiple files, or a complete folder.
(recursivity search).

When using a complete folder or multiple files, you can use the edge auto/hide arrows to move from one media to another.
You can also change the Interlude theme using the same.

To change the wallpaper background, click with the left or right mouse button on the top left icon.



The On/Off switch is turned On, as soon as you Drag or Open a Media.
Switching to Off, comes back to the default Interlude mode, while all media are unloaded from memory.

When in full screen mode, the control panel fades away after 4 secondes of mouse inactivity, to show it back, just move the mouse.

Note: While MediaBox is able to use the same video codecs than Windows 10 "Movies & TV", it is recommended to install the CCCP 64-bit codec pack, for accurate video size detection.

All bottom panel controls are using GDImage widgets acting the same than real Windows controls.

The public binary can be downloaded directly from this link.
To avoid any UAC problem read this post.


Note: The full private C++ VS2015 project is attached to this post, it is available only to registered users.

TCLib plugins:
The latest TCLib 64-bit OpenGL visual plugins VS 2015 projects are also attached to this post, each of the the binary DLL, must be copied into the BBplugin folder and replace the previous one.  The size reduction over the classic VS projects is absolutly amazing, between 4 or 7 times smaller without using a compressor.

The first post of this thread has been updated with the latest version,

that brings up:

- Full integration of Bass.dll.
- Support for both Stream and Music (Amiga sound tracker).
- BassBox woofer animation, for any audio without Cover Art.
- Real time Oscilloscope.
- Many enhancements to the source code.



Note: A few AMIGA sound trackers have been attached to this post for test purpose.
I must say, that i am always amazed to see the size and the great audio quality of these most than 30 years old AMIGA files.
And that was the time of Visual Player 2.0, that was a big source of inspiration for my own Zap Media Solution player.

The first post of this thread has been updated with a newer version of MBox64_SRT.zip.

This version has built-in support to display automatically .srt subtitles while playing a video.
It has been enhanced to better perform codepage detection within .srt,
codepage = CP_UTF8, only if there is a BOM header
else
codepage = CP_ACP

In order to use this feature, both the movie and the subtitle file must be into the same folder.
Their name must match exactly, except for the extension.
