VidBlasterX can 'play' various file formats, including Windows and Apple native video formats and more advanced broadcast formats. The files are loaded into a Player module which not only is used to control the file, but it will also take care of any necessary scaling. A dedicated Audio Player is available for playing audio files. If Microsoft Office is installed VidBlasterX can also play powerpoint presentations as a basic slide show. Finally the Playout controller can be used to fully automate the process of playing video, audio and execute macros and API commands.
