Getting Zoom Player to read Transport streams


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get ZP to play a sample TS file.

I can do it on MPC, Nero Showtime and WinDVD. I own WinDVD, so, if it can do it, then there are appropriate filters that do it and ideally I wouldn't need to load anything new onto the system.

I have already downloaded http://www.inmatrix.com/download/osmpegspl...28052004_nt.exe and inserted into MPEG2 Transport entry in "Audio/Video Splitters", ticked "Enable Customized Media Playback" but get the red box of dread (RBOD) - "Unable to play... This may be due to corrupt file, missing filters...."

When I selected "Show Customized Media Graph creation errors", I get another RBOD, "Could not find a suitable Decoder for "[source File:Customized Graph].Output".

Anybody can help?

Its probably possible to configure zoomplayer to use the WinDVD codec for MPEG2, though due to the abundance of settings in ZPlayer it may be a huge task working out what actually needs to be configured.

I used to use Zoomplayer but one day I lost all audio after installing a second sound card, even after removing the 2nd sound card, reinstalling Zoomplayer, and changing 2 billion settings, I gave up and now use Media Player Classic 6.4.5.8 (its not a Microsoft product) which is much simpler and can play all types of video types like ZPlayer. It may be worth trying MPClassic with the TS files.

Anarchi, as I wrote in my original, MPC (or Media Player Classic) is fine, but ZP's flexible zooming and positioning beats every other player. Besides, everything else is very good.

Doh sorry didnt read it carefully, anyhoo I find that ZoomPlayer has problems with certain video types, resulting in a washed out picture. All other players play the same video fine, so maybe ZoomPlayer is a little too configurable which can be overkill and very confusing for many people.

Make sure you have specified correctly the Audio/Video Decoders. Your AC3 decoder may be set to AC3Filter in your customised playback and you may not have it. Also check MPEG and MPEG2 audio. Also check your MPEG2 Transport video decoder.

Hope this should help, I spent a lot of time to get ZoomPlayer to play transport files, but it was the effort. I used MPC for some time, but it sometimes had problems seeking a slightly corrupt recording.

Alex,

thats the "source" and "spliter" i use and it works. 1 little gripe the sometimes on glitches it may jump to the start of playback.

they should work though. Ensure that it is setup as the Source in the MPEG2 source section and the spliter for MPEG2 Transport (works fine for MPEG2 video as well)
