New York, December 11, 2013 - YCD Multimedia, a leading global provider of smart digital media solutions, today announced a new version release of YCD|Player, an automated and fully synchronized video and audio player. Version 4.3 includes support for Windows 8, in addition to several content management enhancements, such as improved layout loading and editing and simple playlist management. The new version also features improvements for YCD|Agent instructions and enhanced content encryption, as well as other modifications for improved usability.
Improvements in layout loading and editing include several new features in play mode, as a result of the new LoadLayout command. Play modes included in the new version allow loading a playlist before the current track has finished, or the mixing of a current track with a new track. There is now a stop/start feature between two playlists during playback. Layout editor also supports an option for the user to "clear" a specific playlist layer with a single click, or to shuffle between any set of playlist layers after they have been loaded.
YCD|Agent, the point of communication between YCD|CMS and YCD|Player, now includes the capability for auto-synch and introduces specific commands to be dispatched with content uploads via XML for immediate processing, to enhance management and control of synchronized content transfer and playback. Users can now easily update playlists in runtime, save and modify playlists in memory and store the modifications to files and activate several callback commands.
