GraphEdit to Zoom Player

First thing, using GraphEdit, export your graph to an XML format. You do this by clicking "File > Save to XML".

Now download the XML2Zoom conversion program here.

The conversion program is pretty straight forward. After extracting it's zip file, you need to run it with the saved XML file as a parameter, for example:
"c:\program files\xml2zoom.exe" "d:\my graphs\dvdplayer.xgr"

This can be typed on the "Start > Run" interface or in a DOS command prompt. A "zplayer.dvdgraph" file is generated. Take this file and rename it to something more descriptive of the graph it contains. For example "PowerDVD Standard Graph.dvdgraph". It's important to maintain the "dvdgraph" extension so that Zoom Player will recognize it as a DVD Graph Profile.

Now open this file in a text editor and add the functions that tell Zoom Player which filter files you will be using. These are the filter file names you originally registered. A path is not required.

This information is required so that Zoom Player will be able to Register/Unregister these filters automatically using the Register/Unregister buttons on the "DVD Setup" page.

The line to add (for each filter) is:

Lastly, move this newly created (and renamed) file into the Zoom Player "DVDGraph" sub-directory, close GraphEdit and launch Zoom Player. Your newly created DVD Graph Profile should now be listed.

Zoom Player comes with several pre-built DVD Profiles for your inspection in case you're interested in the inner working of this file format. It also comes with a sample file explaining the use of each function. The sample file is named "-- Sample Graph with Building Notes.dvdgraph" and you can open it in any text editor.
