TMPGEnc PGMX™ PLAYER (for Windows)


Price: FREE

TMPGEnc PGMX PLAYER is software for playing PGMX files that stores multiple video clips, menus and chapters all in one file.

PGMX stands for Pegasys Multimedia Box and is the next generation original video file format by Pegasys enabling 1 file (.pgmx) to embed multiple video contents and provide menus and chapters. Its biggest characteristic is it does not rely on a physical media such as DVD or Blu-ray discs, and can be moved or copied like any other data file. Furthermore, it can link several videos or an active menu, yet it is contained within one file like a standard video such as an MP4 file. Since there is no complex folder structure, you can simply transport and playback in one click without any regard to the hard disk, CD, or DVD media used. PGMX files are easily created by using TMPGEnc PGMX CREATOR (Sold separately), so give it a try!

Just drop a PGMX file into TMPGEnc PGMX PLAYER and it will start playing immediately, or you can just double-click it. The simplicity of the PGMX format allows you to play videos with menus in just a fraction of the time when compared to DVD and Blu-ray.

Because a menu in a PGMX file is basically and structurally similar to what you find in a DVD, you can easily operate it. At any time, clicking your favorite title or chapter starts the playback at this very scene. Furthermore, for those familiar with the operation of a DVD player, TMPGEnc PGMX PLAYER provides a virtual D-pad, allowing you to choose the control method between the mouse, controller, and keyboard.

The playback controls utilize a simple design so anyone familiar with playing a video can use it. You can lock the controls so they are always visible, or set them to automatically hide. You can also access menu navigation controls or toggle full screen display mode.

A PGMX file can store several audio streams and subtitles. TMPGEnc PGMX PLAYER allows you to switch between the stored audio streams at anytime. Also, when the stored subtitles are in "Text subtitles" format (a "T" icon appears on the screen), you can switch between your preferred settings for the font size, color, border, and more.

You can register any folder as a library. Because the files in the registered folder always display in the Start Page and the Library Panel, the time to access and play the file is considerably reduced. If you have TMPGEnc PGMX CREATOR, register the output folder and you can quickly and easily view the outputted files for verification.

Other Powerful Features:その他の強力な機能

PGMX files can store data such as the artist name, comments, and more. In TMPGEnc PGMX PLAYER, you can display the information stored in any file in the Start Page or the Player View.

Even though there is a menu, resuming playback from where you left off can be cumbersome. However, because TMPGEnc PGMX PLAYER has a resume playback function, you can start playback from the same scene whenever you want.

If your computer is equipped with the proper hardware, it is possible to perform fast playback by using the graphic card or CPU video playback accelerator. With hardware function accelerated playback, it becomes highly possible to smoothly play even high-definition movies.

Because PGMX files are capable of storing videos at 4K resolution, you can enjoy them on large screens with TMPGEnc PGMX PLAYER. The PGMX format offers complete flexibility, so you can store videos in 4K resolution complete with menus. *In some cases, videos that exceed resolutions of 1920×1080 cannot be played in Windows 7 environments.
