- To All,
I just noticed that in Zoom Player Options > File Associations, the "Play"
checkbox was unmarked. After I inserted a checkmark, media files now play
immediately when Zoom Player launches.
- Hi Dave,
Thanks for the reply.
<<to behave the way you want it has to be set as the default player for that
Zoom Player is the "default" player in the sense that it is associated with
the file multimedia types such as AVI, MP4. WMV etc. That's why Zoom Player
always launches when I double click one of those types of file. After
launching the application, I was baffled as to why the video or audio clip
would not autostart.
Our emails must have crossed. As I said earlier, the solution was to mark the
"Play" checkbox within Zoom Player.
