HomeZoom Player Advanced Options › Control Bar



Hide all Control Bar buttons
If you do not use the control bar buttons on a regular basis, this setting will hide all control bar buttons. Unchecking this setting restores the enabled control bar buttons.

Detach the Control Bar from User Interface (allow it to be moved with the mouse)
When enabled, the Control Bar is detached from the main user interface, allowing it to be moved (even to a different monitor). A detached control bar has two position states (Zoom Player remembers two distinct positions for the control bar). One position for fullscreen and a second position for windowed mode.

Disable the Control Bar in Window Mode (Limit to Fullscreen / Zoom mode)
Prevents the control bar from appearing while Zoom Player appears as a window.

Disable Control Bar and Timeline mouse click context menu
Prevents the Control Bar and Timeline context menu from opening. Useful in preventing accidental setting changes by inexperienced users.

Disable Control Bar mouse wheel seeking
With this setting enabled, using the mouse wheel over the timeline uses the assigned mouse wheel function instead of seeking forward/ahead.

Always show the Control Bar when playing audio files in Fullscreen / Zoom mode
Forces the control bar to be always remain visible when playing audio files in Fullscreen or Zoom mode.

Prevent the Control Bar from moving offscreen (keeps it on-screen when video is zoomed)
If the on screen display is set to be relative to the video size, this setting will prevent the control bar from moving offscreen even if the video is zoomed beyond the screen's size.

Auto-Hide the Control Bar instantly when the mouse cursor is moved away from the Control Bar
When enabled, the Control Bar will instantly hide when the mouse cursor is moved away from it. Note that this setting can conflict with other settings related to how the control bar appears automatically. For example, if you've set the control bar to appear at the top of the screen and set it to automatically appear if you move the mouse to the bottom of the screen then having the setting to automatically hide the control bar when the mouse moves away from it would cause a situation where the control bar appears and then instantly hides.

Auto-Hide the Control Bar in Fullscreen / Zoom mode (seconds)
Automatically hide the Control Bar after a specified number of seconds.

Auto-Hide the Control Bar while stopped or paused
Controls whether the control bar should auto-hide while in Fullscreen / Zoom mode if the media is currently stopped or paused.
