about Zoom Player and VLC Media Player Jun 2011

I absolutely swear by this application. It plays all formats i've ever thrown at it. It is more stable than VLC. It has exceptional configuration options, and videos just simply look better with this application. One of the few applications I use that I am comfortable paying for.

This video player is a gem.

No need for any other media player.

about Zoom Player Jun 2011

This player is "eye candy" and has tons of options to customize the UI.

You can use Media Player Classic Home Cinema DirectShow filters, and/or ffdshow to play about anything.

No need for any other media player.

UI and Mouse Control customization

Positive Comment by isamux
about Zoom Player and Media Player Classic, VLC Media Player Jun 2011

The one thing I like about Zoom Player is that is has a lot of options to customize the UI and Mouse Control.
VLC and Media Player Classic would be perfect substitutes for Zoom Player if the allowed better customizing - especially of the mouse wheel function.
It's really sad, that they development of the free "Zoom Player Standard" version.
