zoom player
I can get zoom player to play files, but not dvd directories. i.e. when I give it the video_ts pointer, it fails to launch the dvd. I was hoping this would work, because that's the way it works for the mymovies/sage combo , and it would be nice if the path presented by mymovies was the same for both zoom and sage. Otherwise it means setting up an additional repo, and redoing all the data file addresses.
I wonder if there's a separate command to send to Zoom when it's a directory or something? If so, the driver would have to check and see what it was given and issue a different command. I'll look at it.

There's no separate command. So I guess the only thing I can really do add a field on Zoom that lets you set a pattern that will be used when you issue it a PlayMedia or EnqueueMedia command, so you could set something like:


So the L token would be replaced with the contents of the location info for any file it's about to play, and it would use that as the actual path to pass to Zoom. By default it wouldn't be set, so you'd get the literal location info. And of course you could set and clear that pattern as desired.

it has been a while since I used zoom, but i was able to get it to play ifo files, i just passed it the full path and filename of the video_ts.ifo file.

in the action, you could test to see if it is a DVD path, and tack on the video_ts.ifo part of the filename, that was how I did it...
That only works if you are directly invoking Zoom Player from the client. But if you are controlling it from a driver, that won't work because the driver can only get what's in the location info for the collection/item you tell it to play. Hence my suggestion of the thing above.
