Couple of things I've noticed that look interesting... In Steam\Bin, smp.exe, or Steam Media Player. Looks like movies are coming to Steam soon. Also, Steam\Public\P2PDownload.res. Hello Bittorrent-style Steam functionality. --AiusEpsi 15:21, 10 Mar 2006 (PST)

If you load it up in a debugger it does infact say Steam Media Player, it maybe related to this topic :: also it is using imports from MediaPlayer, load up the :::p2pdownload and it talks about, ShareRatio, don't know if this should be here. If not delete. --Sarkie
I managed to get a movie to play, it does a nice fade to black then plays the movie. ^Ben 16:37, 10 Mar 2006 (PST)
This bad boy can also stream files from the internet ^Ben 16:37, 10 Mar 2006 (PST)
Stop talking and post some pics!! ;)--RP 16:39, 10 Mar 2006 (PST)

It's fullscreen but you can use the standard wmp controls to work it ^Ben 16:42, 10 Mar 2006 (PST)

How'd you get it to do that? Mine just refuses to do anything when I double-click on it... --AiusEpsi

you gotta open it like a command-line program...drag and drop to it—ts2do 16:54, 10 Mar 2006 (PST)

I tried that, still nothing. Hmm. --AiusEpsi
Oh, you need to have a parameter of some kind after the smp.exe for it to work. --AiusEpsi
Just select a movie, and use "open with" and select smp...--RP 17:01, 10 Mar 2006 (PST)

I take it that smp has something to do with Zombie Movie? -- Sodabus 17:31, 10 Mar 2006 (PST)

Yeah just use shift right click on normal files and load the files, basically it will play any Windows Media Player can, running through Dependancy Walker can't see a lot of relations to WMP .dlls, is this just a container? It will need the codecs install I'm sure, but will it need Windows Media Player 9 -10 if it does, why do we need if only for the cool blur effect. --Sarkie 02:31, 10 Mar 2006 (GMT)

I find this player to be the fastest to play HD WMV content. But it doesn't use hardware video overlay for output. Why is that? --Slider2k 19:00, 3 Jul 2007 (PDT)

Trailers in STEAM soon?

  • Apparently we're going to be able to watch trailers (and maybe more) on STEAM very soon, look at this thread (credits for AiusEpsi) --RP 16:26, 5 May 2006 (PDT)


Should this article have a list of hotkeys? I just can't figure out how to jump through the timeline in full screen. --Snake oil salesman 02:57, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
