splayer 3.7 and video codec / Interface splayer


Why remove the many customization options that splayer 3.7 has?
I loved speeding up the credits of end of film to see if there was not a last scene.
I can not appreciate this new interface that I find too basic.
Regarding splayer 3.7, since I reinstalled it, every time I put a film in full screen, the windows stain bar remains visible. Do you have an idea of ​​the problem ?
How does the LAVFilters-0.73.1-Installer file work? Because even having installed it, splayer 3.7 does not read all the videos. Is there a particular configuration to bring?
Thank you in advance and a big congratulations for your work!

Thanks for sharing your feedback.

Currently, We do not have the plan to update 3.x version. 3.x version with LAVFilters is able to support most of the popular video formats, but not all of them. Could you plz tell us more details about the videos that you cannot play? We might need to check the codec and more info about the video file.

We highly recommend you to upgrade to 4.x version, which use the latest core and framework. 4.x version is designed to be neat, which also means there are less user customizations than before. Another reason is that it’s just a beginning, 4.x version is still in beta.

However, Basic functions and features that most of our users want will still be added to the new version. Tell us more (with details) about what function you want back, and we will think about letting the new SPlayer to support it! Your opinion is really imortant to us.

Thank you for your quick reply.
To understand my concern, I must know that I use splayer on a home theater PC.
I only control the PC with the mouse.
With the old version, I could in one click, pause, quickly accelerate the end of a movie to see if the credits had a final scene (thank you Marvel MCU) or just before the beginning of the film.
I just noticed that the concern is probably due to the operating system. A video that does not pass on my home cinema PC works on another PC. The difference comes from the operating system. The PC home cinema is under windows 7x64 while the other PC is under windows 10x64. Could it come from there?

We have received your feedback.

What we understand is that you cannot use the progress bar thumbnail preview function to preview the bonus post-credit scene.

There can be several reasons that would lead to “No preview thumbnail” issue. For example, it might take minutes to get the preview screenshoot if the file size is large (with high resolution), especially when there are too many large video files in your playlist. It can also be the system environment (inlcuding operating system, drivers, installation etc.)

Is it possible that you tell us how to get the file you are watching, we might need to do a test on the original file, and to see what the specific problem it is. On the other hand, if it is possible, we highly recommend you to upgrade to Windows 10 X64, which will have a better support for playing modern codec video files.

We have released the latest v4.1.13, you can try whether it can solve your problem. For any other questions, just let us know.

We would like to create a discussing board or group for global users with the help of some instant messaging / forums (popular ones), we really appreciate it if you have any suggestions for us, thanks.

Thanks for your feedback :)

Thank you for the answer.
I do not have a problem previewing videos. Splayer 4x does it very well, but I find that it is less convenient to have to move with the mouse than to use a button where one stays pressed on it and which advances more and more quickly as it was the case in version 3.x

I made the maj to windows 10 pro x64 but it did not change anything for splayer 3.x. I still have problems with recent videos. I hope you can quickly update version 4.x so that I use it instead of version 3.x.
Thank you.

After using splayer 4.x for several days, here are two big improvements for me.
1) Adjustable sound with the mouse is not accurate enough: or too loud or too low, impossible to find the ideal volume.
2) An option is missing to display the remaining movie time with the full time.
3) To move forward or backward in a video by simply using the mouse with forward / backward buttons, as on the old version 3.x.
4) At home, I think it takes longer to launch than version 3.x.

So much for the changes that I would like to see one day happen.
Thank you.

Currently, one way to meet your needs is to use the “alt + left arrow” and “alt + right arrow” keybind , which can help you quickly control the playback progress.

We also recommend you to use the touchpad. You can easily control the progress bar with two fingers moving horizontally.

We will discuss more about add “accelerating” based on the time you stay pressed. For now, “accelerating” is only supported by the touchpad control .

For me, as I said before, here are the flaws that I find on this new player:

1) Disappearance of the forward / backward arrows to speed up reading
2) To be forced to put in the center of the player to pause in the watched video.
3) Sound volume problem that is not set correctly by the wheel of the mouse (or too loud or too weak) while it is set correctly without it (yet it worked very well in splayer 3.x).
4) The player that does not close when you click to close the movie / series that we just watched and that requires a second click.
5) The impossibility to configure the display of the duration / end of the video in progress (as in splayer 3.x)
6) lack of configurable options (sorry, but it was so convenient in version 3.x)
So much for the flaws.
The modern look of the player is really a good choice. The idea of ​​showing the video when you hover over the progress bar is well thought out too.

Your Reply Moved From Topic 197:

Pour moi, comme je l’ai déjà dit, voici les défauts que je trouve sur ce nouveau player :

1) Disparition des flèches avant / arrière pour accélérer la lecture 2) Etre obligé de se mettre au centre du player pour faire une pause dans la vidéo regardée. 3) Problème de volume sonore qui ne se règle par correctement à la molette de la souris (ou trop fort ou trop faible) alors qu’il se règle correctement sans elle (pourtant ça fonctionnait très bien dans splayer 3.x). 4) Le player qui ne se ferme pas quand on clique pour fermer le film / série que l’on vient de regarder et qui oblige donc un deuxième clic. 5) L’impossibilité de configurer l’affichage de la durée / fin de la vidéo en cours (comme dans splayer 3.x) 6) le manque d’options configurables (désolé, mais c’était tellement pratique dans la version 3.x) Voilà pour les défauts. L’aspect moderne du player est vraiment un bon choix. L’idée de pouvoir afficher la vidéo quand on passe la souris sur la barre de progression est bien pensé aussi.

I finally found where came the concern of splayer 3.x that did not save my information. This came from the LUA registry key. Obviously the player did not have the necessary permissions to write in “c: \ program files (x86)”.
It still does not solve my codec concerns but at least I can configure it again.
I have however recovered the last lavfilters available (0.74.1-18 Nightly (May 18, 2019) but no recent video works anyway, if I run splayer 4.x I can read them.
1) Can I have more details on the operation of codecs for splayer 3.x in order to try to find a solution?
2) What software could give you the necessary information about the codecs used by new videos that do not pass in order to find a solution?
Thank you in advance.

Hi, LAVFilters is the recommended decoder that SPlayer 3.x supports, there might be some other codec packs that you can use, but not sure they can work properly. If you want to do deep tests and get more info from those videos, some third party libraries and tools are available, such as ffmpeg etc. Thanks.

In fact, my question is where splayer 3.x will default to the necessary codecs.
Thank you.

Hi, will there be shutdown new splayer after movie end? I miss that a lot :( and I want to pause/start video with mouse anywhere i press. On new player I can do that only when pressing in the middle of the screen.

a year ago

to those who like me, are Splayer3.X and do not want to change, I found a solution for videos that did not pass before. Simply go to “Display” / “Disable Soft CoreAVC Mode”. Since then, the videos that did not work work this without adding a codec.
