Zoom Player is a robust media and DVD front-end player. It was designed to be simple at first glance while being remarkably dynamic and flexible when used to its full potential. It works in two modes: a Media mode which can play any file supported by DirectShow (any file which plays in MediaPlayer) and a DVD mode which uses pre-installed DirectShow DVD filters to play DVD content. It supersedes media player in all it's functions and provides several important functions that media player lacks. It provides special zooming functions to improve TV-output quality by eliminating overscan.
- Media Library Thumbnail view mode with video screenshots and kinetic scrolling
- Up to 40% faster load time
- Visual cues with the Windowed UI when hovering over buttons and widgets
- 4K resolution control bar
- Password protected media library categories
- New UX customization settings
- Bug fixes

Not so good media player.
User interface is messy - I can't find anything there.
It plays media files ok, but it could not play AC3 audio track in mkv file (AC3 addon was installed). It could be Windows 8 problem, but if Media player classic home cinema (MPC-HC) plays it fine - I prefer to stay with it.
Reviewing 8.5 (Oct 28, 2012)
Nothing is better than this for video. Spend the time configuring it to your taste and you will never use anything else. All those options are there for a reason, so take the time to do the setup and never look back. After years of using this program and trying all the others out there, I don't even bother trying the others anymore. That's just a waste of my time. Absolutely nothing has ever come close to Zoom Player

This is the best video player on the market. It has an internet radio and internet TV capabilities. It will play CD, DVD, and BlueRay disks as well as every other file downloaded to your desktop. ZoomPlayer also downloads all codec software needed straight from the source to play any video or audio file imaginable through the install center. It's highly customizable. And the default skin is sharp and sleek. And to my surprise when ZoomPlayer was updated to version 8, my license was excepted without paying for an upgrade. I highly recommend this awesome player. It's way better than the free ones but like in most things, you get what you pay for.
