Announcing Zoom Player v8.5 final

It's finally ready! The most visually polished version of Zoom Player EVER!
I hope everyone enjoys this release, the team worked long and hard to make sure v8.5 is a great success.

The FREE version will be released next week, PRO and MAX users can download right away and start playing:
Download Zoom Player v8.5 MAX.
Download Zoom Player v8.5 PRO.

For the full change log from v8.1.6, click here.

What changed since v8.5 RC1:
  * The LAV Video decoder can now be selected as a DVD video decoder.
    LAV's DVD support is still experimental.

  * The PowerDVD 12 video decoder is now supported for DVD decoding.

  * The OPUS Audio format is now fully supported.
    Existing users may want to click on the 'Default' button next to the audio
    file extensions under:
    Adv. Options / File Format Association / File Extensions

  * Zoom Player now supports the Open-Source DVD Navigation filter:

  * New fullscreen navigation skin-scripting parameter to set the playlist's
    active playing track color, when it is the selected entry.

  * An LAV Video decoder option has been added to the Theora Video
    Smart Play profile.

  * A new Theora Video sub-type has been added to the Smart Play profile.

  * A new warning dialog now pops-up when trying to enable certain conflicting
    settings in the options dialog.

  * When selecting items in the fullscreen navigation interface, for additional
    clarity, an icon is now used to mark the selected entry.

  + The uTorrent and eMule download percentage in the fullscreen navigation
    interfaces has been changed to a more suitable color and is now aligned
    to the left of the file name.

  + The mouse wheel's Increase/Decrease play rate function now works in
    10% increments.

  + The function list dialog's search function has been enhanced for clarity.

  + Smart Play now strips the '.!ut' file extension when evaluating which
    source filter to use. This change should improve playback stability of
    incomplete media files downloaded with uTorrent.

  + More Smart Play profiles now provide an 'LAV' option to use as the

  - Fixed several memory leaks, especially when loading skins or
    expanding/contracting skin elements.

  - Several bug-fixes to the FFDShow and VobSub's Subtitle rendering filter's
    subtitle track cycling.

  - Multiple bugs fixed in the subtitle track selection dialog, including:
    Active subtitle track was not always detected.
    A 'disabled' subtitle track entry was not always present.

  - When using MadVR as the video renderer, Zoom Player now exits
    fullscreen exclusive at the end of each track, increasing MadVR
    stability (no more fullscreen freezes between tracks on some

  - Changing the fullscreen navigation's 'navigation line count' value
    no longer distorts the 'Path' icon size in the following fullscreen
    navigation interfaces:
    1. Media Library.
    2. File Browser.
    3. Station Browser.
    4. Download Manager.

  - When setting the fullscreen navigation's 'navigation line count'
    value to a high figure, the Equalizer and Color Control navigation
    interface's display became too small to read.

  - When using 'automatic subtitle stream selection' with multiple
    'text match' values, the last matching text was used instead
    of the first matching.

  - The current media's Scene-Cut list would get wiped clear when switching
    skins or expanding/contracting skin elements.
