Gretech heeft versie 188.8.131.5206 van GOM Player uitgebracht. Deze gratis mediaspeler wordt door Gretech ontwikkeld en is geschikt voor Windows 98 of hoger, met uitzondering van Windows NT. GOM Player wordt geleverd met diverse populaire codecs, zodat deze niet apart in Windows hoeven te worden geïnstalleerd. Mocht er een bestand worden afgespeeld waarvoor de codec nog niet aanwezig is, dan kan deze via de zogeheten codec finder automatisch worden opgezocht en toegevoegd. Verder is ondersteuning aanwezig voor het afspelen van incomplete bestanden en uiteraard ook voor ondertiteling. De installer wordt met een Ask-toolbar geleverd, maar installatie daarvan is optioneel. In versie 184.108.40.20606 zijn de volgende veranderingen en verbeteringen doorgevoerd:
Changes in version 220.127.116.1106 include:
- Disable Splash Screen Function (window that appears when closing the player) added.
Users can now permanently disable the splash screen that periodically appears when closing the player. This can be done from the Preferences window (Preferences -> General -> Network tab -> Splash Screen). Resetting the player to it's default settings or re-installing the software after uninstalling will re-enable the Splash screen until it is disabled again.
- Improved the Gretech MP4 Source Filter.
Corrected an issue that was causing MOV files recorded with CANON and FUJIFILM digital cameras to be played with no sound under the software's default settings.
- Altered default screen size settings.
In the previous version the "Only apply when launching a new instance of GOM Player" option was enabled by default, causing all videos to open at 100% size of the first video viewed during that session. This option is now disabled by default.
- Improved playback for extremely large files (AVI, MKV, WMV, ASF, MP4, OGG, TS)
Corrected a problem that caused files that are larger than 40MB per second to play incorrectly.
- Added the LAV Audio Decoder to the Disabled Filters List
Due to compatibility issues that were causing playback errors, the LAV Audio Decoder is now disabled by default.
- Corrected the Gretech FLV Source Filter
When trying to play FLV files that included audio that was encoded with the Speex codec, a "0x00000055" error was displayed and the file could not be played. The Speex codec is still not supported, however video can now be viewed properly when playing such files.
- Improved the Gretech AVI Source Filter
Corrected an issue where audio was not played correctly on some AVI files that were comprised of multiple indexes.
- Product information added to the Windows Control Panel
When highlighting GOM Player in the Programs and Features section of the Windows Control Panel, Product Version information, a Help Link, a Support Link, and an Update information link are now displayed at the bottom of the window.
- Impoved the Playback Window size adjustment feature
Previously when using the [Ctrl] + [Alt] + Numpad [-] shortcut you could make the playback window so small that it would completely disappear. This issue has been corrected and a minimum size has been applied.
- Adjusted the default AC3 options
Previously there was a slight boost applied to AC3 gain by default, which was causing minor audio distortion in some files. The AC3 Gain control is now set to 0 by default.
Miscellaneous minor changes to phrasing, etc.
