Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
--- What's new in Zoom Player v10.5:

New :

* New thumbnail based view mode for the Media Library fullscreen navigation interface with kinetic scrolling!
You can specify which media library category should display in thumb view mode using the Media Library category editor.
Thumb view mode automatically uses background threads to scrape for information (thumbnails and other meta-data) from media files within the media library.
Bumping on the left/right sides using a keyboard or remote control brings up custom functionality such as "Go to first entry", "Go up a folder" or "Switch sorting mode".
Bumping the first and last thumb rows using a keyboard or remote control shows a momentary glow effect to signify navigation has reached the start or end of the thumbnail display. Pressing up or down once again using the keyboard or remote control switches to the other end of the thumbnail display.
To access a media's function menu, long click or touch the thumbnail until the function icon appears over the thumbnail and then let go of the mouse button (or screen) before the icon disappears.
Pressing Enter with a keyboard or remote control brings up a mini-menu with options to "play the media file", "erase the media file", "open the full function menu" and "go back to the category list". The mini-menu automatically times out after 3 seconds or you can close it manually by pressing left on the left side. The two functions on the right side of the mini-menu ("erase media file" and "go back to the category list") are customizable through the advanced options dialog.
To return to the category list using a keyboard or remote control, you can press "Left" on the first entry. By default, bumping left will go to the first entry, so a few left clicks will quickly show the category list.

* New thumb view section in the advanced options dialog featuring all the settings available to control Zoom Player's thumb view layout and user experience.

* The 'Navigation Style' fullscreen navigation interface can now be used to switch between background patterns on skins that allow you to set a custom background pattern.

* Features that highlight a portion of the timeline (AB-Repeat, creating ring tones, etc) now show position markers for the start and end points as well as the duration of the highlighted range.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation / Settings) that controls whether the media library lists content that matches a category type or shows the content based on the media library filter.
The new default is to only show content based on the media library category type. To restore the previous default, uncheck this setting.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation / Settings) to Automatically select the last viewed file/folder when entering a folder.
This setting requires play history's "save last play time" setting enabled to function.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Control Bar / Timeline Area) that determine if timeline markers are shown with features that highlight a portion of the timeline

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface) to force the Playlist editor to remain on-top when switching to fullscreen mode.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface) to force the Equalizer to remain on-top when switching to fullscreen mode.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / On Screen Display / Tags) to use the folder/embedded image as a stretched and darkened background for the image itself. Enabled by default.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Fullscreen Navigation / Settings) that enables using the navigation "Enter" key action on a media library category list to open the category at the root folder. This was the previous default behavior, which have now been disabled. Pressing enter with this setting disabled, opens the category in its previous position.

* Volume widgets now show the volume percentage as a hint when hovering over with the mouse cursor.

* The Multi-Part file loader's "Automatic Match" setting can now detect and add into the playlist GoPro series of media files. Thanks Dimitar Pankov.

* The "Options / About" page will now specify if your copy of Zoom Player is a life time (free upgrades for life) license.

* The internal image decoder now supports GIF decoding (only still images, does not support animating GIF files).

* New "fnThumbViewMiniMenu" function that Shows/Hides the media library's ThumbView mode's Mini-Menu.

* New "unchecked" icon used throughout several fullscreen navigation interfaces to clarify usage experience.

Changes :

+ Zoom Player file tracker is now compatible with qBitTorrent v3.2.

+ The backspace key can now be used with all fullscreen navigation interfaces to quickly go up to a previous folder or all the way back to the main fullscreen navigation interface.

+ The backspace key no longer clears the playlist on the playlist fullscreen navigation interface.

+ Zoom Player used the term 'Directory' and 'Folder' interchangeably, to prevent confusion, all references should now appear as 'Folder'.

Fixes :

- When viewing the main fullscreen navigation interface in grid mode, the description could appear as "???" when using a non-english language pack.

- The media library fullscreen navigation interface did not highlight previously seen image files when the setting to 'Highlight previously viewed files' was enabled.

- Navigation scroll acceleration (when holding down or quickly tapping a keyboard or remote control button) didn't reset the acceleration when using a different navigation key. For example, pressing the down arrow quickly would scroll real fast down a list, but then pressing the UP key would scroll back up by more than one item.

- The keyboard macro list and right-click context menu file were not updated to the latest version in the original v10.0.0 release.
- Maximizing and then Minimizing the main player window lost the maximized window state and non-maximized window size.

- Playing a new video with MadVR set as the video renderer while the player window was in a maximized state lost the maximized window state and non-maximized window size.

- Using functions that shows a file open/save dialog and keeping the dialog window open until the internal screen saver started, caused the user interface to become unresponsive.

- Fixed a small memory leak.

- With the "Nav-Left goes up a directory before entering the Drive/Category list" setting enabled, clicking the "<" icon in the media library triggered a "folder up" action instead of returning to the category list.

- Fixed a crash when trying to close the player with certain fullscreen navigation interfaces open and uTorrent/qBittorrent/eMule file tracking was enabled.

- The "Screen-Center Playlist when switching to Fullscreen / Zoom mode" setting did not actually screen-center the playlist editor.

- Trying to set file association with UAC enabled under Windows 7 would erroneously show a 'this feature is not supported by the FREE/PRO version' dialog.

what a media player,in one word just fantastic because it can play any media files quickly and it has the best audio equalizer than any other media players and by doing custom settings you can also see the total full time of all media files just by adding them immediately at the playlist and what a sharp sound it gives by doing minimum low adjustments at the audio equalizer,it has also video equalizer but only thing it requires codecs installed in your PC to play all media files like K-Lite Mega Codec Pack

Honestly may be the most "powerful, flexible and customizable" DVD and media player in existence. Tons of options and customizations. Highest-quality media playback. Beautiful interface. Only the high purchase price holds this fine piece of software back. Highly recommended.

This is a great video player. I used to use VLC media player, but I stumbled on this program about a year ago and fell in love with it. Simple to use, lots of features, doesn't seem to use a lot of system resources. The selling point for me was being able to adjust the aspect ratio/video size in full screen mode which you can't do with vlc.

At first, this looked like the player I was looking for: lots of formats and features (everything that I was looking for and some). But, it's expensive (to unlock the features I want) and it can't smoothly handle skipping around in the video (ff, rewind, skip fwd, etc) without a lot of video problems while it resynchronizes and tries to repaint the stream unless you're playing at 1:1 (why bother). I have a very fast system, including fast video (~6000 on 3dMark06). It's even worse if you have a cut file to make is skip over commercials (videos recorded off the air/cable, then processed through show analyzer).

I should note that if it wasn't for the video problems, I probably would have registered it -- even at (IMO) it's high cost.

I just wanted a player that had an adjustable stay-on-top skin window size. This did it for me.

A great product and excellent value.

This is the only DVD player that I have used that will correctly decode the AC3 sound with my old Audigy soundcard. Used in conjunction with AC3 Filter, you can rearrange the sound channel matrix. For example, the old Audigy cards only have Front, Rear and Center channels in analog mode. If you connect your subwoofer to the Center output (with no additional regular speaker), than all the dialog on an AC3 DVD only come on out the SW. Since the Zoom Player gives you complete control as to what audio and video decoders it uses, you can force it to use AC3 Filter (unlike PowerDVD, which always seems to want to use its own Cyberlink filtersno matter how you prioritize AC3 Filter).

And the best news is, that the Pro version is very reasonably priced.

A note of caution, I didn't notice any bugs in the Version 4.0 Release Candidate 2, but if you are worried about that kind of thing, stick with version 3.31.

Ease of use 8 of 10 Functionality 9 of 10 Value for money 10 of 10 Overall score 9 of 10


Been using Zoomplayer for a few years now and I just love it.

Its simple GUI is a refreshing change from all those 'stand-alone' wannabies (pretty pointless on a pc imo).

For TV-Out work it's essential (and lets face it TV is the only way to watch video media, its what they're designed for).

As already mentioned it can be tricky navigating (to start with) but controlling the video height, width, or both from the scroll wheel is addictive.

Its always managed to play any file (any format) that I've thrown at it (as long as you have the required codec/filters installed) without any glitches. It also uses less OS resources than most media players.

The only gripe (if it can be called that) is the lack of audio controls for bass or treble.

If I had the choice of only one player for video media this would be the one, nuff said.

This player is clearly the most versatile, powerful, and feature packed of ANY multimedia player in the world. While some may not like it, they are usually the ones who don't understand how to use it (hence the 8 rating in 'ease of use').

It has SO many options that it will overwhelm the casual user if you try to browse through the option tree. If all you do is watch a few divx videos every now and then, you should use a simple player like BSPLAYER as mentioned below. If, however, you want to have total control & customization ability of every single aspect of video playing, this is the only player you should use.

There are two versions, a free version for regular common multimedia (divx,vcd,ogm etc) and a pay version that adds its dvd front-end to the basic player. You must have an mpeg2 codec installed to use the dvd front end, and it alone has more options than the next 10 players combined.

The word 'Zoom' in Zoomplayer reflects the players' heritage - the ability to 'zoom' a video in and out in order to make it display properly on TV screens using a TV out connection. The player was made for this purpose, although it plays movies on the computer better than any other player as well. The free version is a must have, the pay version is well worth the money because the author works very hard to release frequent updates (huge change logs) and actively answers questions on his forum.

Maybe not the best, that depends. But it plays everything and that's important.
