TMPGEnc PGMX PLAYER is software for playing Pegasys' Next Generation file format "PGMX" files that stores multiple video clips, menus and chapters all in one file*.
-What is a PGMX File?-
PGMX is short for Pegasys Multimedia Box. Developed by Pegasys, it can store both menu and video content into a single file (.pgmx / .mkv). The video stream is H.264/AVC, and since the file does not depend on physical media such as DVD and Blu-ray discs, it is not limited to certain video characteristics. For example, you can use MP4 video from your smartphone which typically may not be DVD or Blu-ray compliant, or you can even use videos in 4K resolution (4096×2304). PGMX files give you the freedom to keep your videos at a quality level and resolution of your choosing.
PGMX files can also utilize a navigational menu system that can link to multiple videos within the file. Since both the menu and videos are combined into one file, there is no complex folder structure like those found in the DVD-Video and Blu-ray formats.
-Simple Playback Controls-
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. Furthermore, this Android version supports "swiping" to move to the previous/next pages and also "pinch-out" to zoom for easy tapping**.
-Multiple Subtitles and Audio Selection Support-
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.
-File Information Display-
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 by tapping and holding in the File List Page.
- Resume Playback Function -
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.
*PGMX file creation requires "TMPGEnc PGMX CREATOR (Sold separately, only for Windows)"
**The swipe function only supports files which are created in TMPGEnc PGMX CREATOR ver.184.108.40.206 and later.
- Resolutions over 2K in size or interlaced files may not be playable on all devices.
