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.

    This is awesome software but the pay structure has changed. Regular customers who had paid for the service according to the first payment policy were rudely surprised after upgrading to find that they now had to pay a yearly subscription now. The cost per year isn't worth it for me and I don't trust the one time upgrade deal due to them changing their first payment policy due to them stating that they are living in hard times (Check their message board). It is really good software if you don't mind a yearly subscription but for me there are free alternatives to replace Zoom Player and that is what I have done.

    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.
