Introduction

DvPlayer is an advanced multimedia player.

The current version of DvPlayer requires Enhancer Software V2 and supports the following video formats:

  • MPEG-1/2 video streams
  • MPEG-1/2 system streams
  • MPEG audio files
  • VideoCD and SVCD
  • DVD Video
  • AVI files (including OpenDML extensions)
  • ASF/WMV files
  • AIFF audio files

DvPlayer supports many audio and video codecs via avcodec2.library, including MPEG Video 1/2, DiVX, XVID, MJPG, Cinepak, Indeo Video, PCM, MPEG Audio (Layer1-3) and more.

To achieve the fastest possible video playback, DvPlayer uses fast direct-rendering algorithms for every possible HiColor and TrueColor display mode. There are also separate rendering routines for half scale and also for movies with 16:9 aspect ratio so that they are correctly displayed on a 1:1 aspect monitor without being stretched.

DvPlayer features an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface.

Keyboard shortcuts are available for quick and easy access to functions.

Handling of multiple files is implemented, so the user can easily select many video files and step between them either automatically or by the press of a button.

The GUI is skinnable, allowing everyone to get the look-and-feel they want. You can easily switch from window to full screen display and back (only for registered users).

DvPlayer can be placed into X-Dock and the user can drag'n'drop files onto the DvPlayer icon to make them play instantly. Files can also be dragged into DvPlayer's window which adds them to the file list.

It is possible to switch between the different audio streams from the menu or with keyboard shortcuts, even during playback, for example to select a different language.

The popular .srt and .sub subtitle formats are supported. Subtitles can be loaded manually or automatically. The position and appearance of subtitles can also be configured (font, size, colour).

The new 64-bit DOS interface functions of OS4 are supported to allow files larger than 2GB to be correctly handled.

For DVD and VideoCD playback, the DVD drive where you have a DVD or VideoCD inserted will be found automatically. There is no need for the user to specify device names and unit numbers.

DvPlayer features an I/O plugin system, which allows external plugins to be developed to expand the functionality of the program. For example a plugin supporting internet streaming protocols would instantly allow DvPlayer to play internet streaming videos.

DvPlayer supports Multimedia Keyboards, so that you can adjust the volume using the extra multimedia keys.
