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.

Zoomplayer is the GOD of all PC video players. It creates the gold-standard for all other video players to be benchmarked to.
Make no mistake, this is the best HTPC video player on the market, hands down. It is stable, configurable in every way imaginable and controllable from a remote using Eventghost or girder.
Ignore these nincompoops below. They are purposely decreasing the rating for some reason
Best video player ever. Nothing even comes close and I've tried all of them (including MPC-HC + VLC + GOM + KMplayer)

Installs too many additonal programs for me. When I uninstalled it, I had to manually uninstall at least 8 other programs it had installed. Not for me.

It's just the same s*** it the previous one, only released to get their hands in your pockets once again.
As said below, there are free alternatives which can do 100x more and 100x better.

Useless. There are far more better players than this one and they're freeware.
