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.

Archaic design. Many free programs are easier to use and slicker. Total waste of my money.

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
