Announcing Zoom Player v18 release candidate 2

Zoom Player Beta

What's new in this beta:
  * New IPTV color-highlighting for the playing channel and program
    (on channels that support archive playback). You can tweak the
    colors in the options dialog.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Playback / IPTV) to hide outdated archive
    channel EPG entries that are too old to stream.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Playlist) that specifies the
    default Playlist Load / Save folder. If nothing is specified, the standard
    windows supplied path is used.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Playlist) that controls whether
    Zoom Player should ask you for a confirmation when you clear the playlist.

  * New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface) to control whether text that
    has no room to display fully starts scrolling. Currently this only
    applies to the main window's title text.

  + The IPTV EPG files are now loaded and parsed in a background thread. This
    means that the interface should open quickly and you can close it even
    before the EPG data is finished parsing so the entire interface should
    feel faster.

    This change should also fix issues caused when Windows thinks Zoom Player's
    window has become unresponsive while parsing EPG data (for example, on some
    systems I got reports that the IPTV window would lose it's "on top" value).

  - Trying to play a video with an external audio track, for example:
    "myvideo.mkv" and "myvideo.mp3" in the same folder with the "Load External
    Audio tracks" setting enabled, resulted in a lot of instability.
    I rewrote the whole interface and now it's much more stable. Please note
    that this feature also requires Zoom Player's DSP filter to be enabled
    (Adv. Options / Playback / Audio - Enable Internal DSP Filter).

  - The Playlist Editor's "Load Playlist" feature accidentally listed media
    files instead of playlists by default.

  - The Folder Browser dialog should no longer appear partially off-screen or
    hidden by the task bar.

  - Fixed an IPTV EPG Filtering issue where entering a value into the
    filter box and then switching to another channel would make it impossible
    to clear the filtering value.

  - Under some conditions, the play history fullscreen navigation interface
    could show a value of "00:00:-1" for the last play position.

  - When using a non-default font, the play history last play position could
    mess with the alignment of the file/url.

  - IPTV Logo caching from EPG files did not work properly for some entries
    based solely on channel name.

  - Playing too many broken URLs or files is sequence could have resulted in
    play history entries being generated even though nothing was played.

  - Reduced the chances of showing IPTV EPG information for the wrong channel
    when using badly crafted playlist or EPG sources.
