Multimedia players

MediaBox (MBox64)

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: VIP64 is a video-only player (however it can play from DVD or unencrypted Blu-Ray).

Note: Each player is provided with its full C++ VS2017 source code project.

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.

SRT subtitles
« Reply #6 on: August 17, 2017, 06:45:43 pm »
New 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.

What is new:
Now you can press the right mouse button onto a contact sheet poster, to popup a dialog asking you if you want to remove the matching movie and its TMDB data permanently.

MBox64 (Media Foundation version) has been updated.

What is new:
To preserve the z-order, the parent of the TMDH window has been changed to keep the animation interlude hidden, while cliking on child controls from the bottom panel.

Note:
The link to the standalone Windows 10 binary version has also been updated.

MBox64 (Media Foundation version) has been updated.

The TMDB API doesn't provide anymore wallpaper in full HD mode (they switched to 720p) thus forcing me to change the query that was using w1920 to w1280, sorry for the inconvenience...


Note:
The link to the standalone Windows 10 binary version has also been updated.
