Zoom Player Reviews

about Zoom Player · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Zoom Player goes back to the early 2000's (I bought it in 2004), and it's been steadily updated ever since. However, I do hate its longtime "1 year free updates" scheme which is sooo 2000's...
The player is still powerful and super modular, but it's quite smug in its pricing, acting like awesome free alternatives never happened.

about Zoom Player and VLC Media Player · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

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.

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

about Zoom Player and Media Player Classic, VLC Media Player · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

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.
