Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
June 26, 2014.
Changelog (v9.1):

(Free version released)

"*" = New
"+" = Change
"-" = Fix

--- What's new in Zoom Player v9.1.0:

* The left mouse click can now be set to "Mouse Gestures".

* You can now assign 4 mouse gestures (up/down/left/right) when gesturing with the mouse cursor while holding down the left mouse button or by swiping a finger on touch displays a forth of the way across the screen. By default the assigned functions are: Left : Medium seek backward Right : Medium seek forward Up : Previous Track Down : Next Track All gestures can be assigned a custom function in the MAX version.
* xySubFilter support for full resolution subtitle rendering when playing lower resolution video content. MadVR must be used as the video renderer for xySubFilter to function. Please note that the current version of xySubFilter may break ffdshow subtitle rendering if the xySubFilter filter is registered.

* The XInput (XBOX360 and compatible controllers) interface can now assign Zoom-in and Zoom-out functions to the left and right Trigger buttons.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Control Bar / Timeline Area) that displays chapter points on the timeline. When the mouse hovers over a chapter point, a pop-up shows the chapter name. This feature requires a skin that includes additional chapter-point graphical elements. The Onyx and Alba skins include this support.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / System / Screen Saver) to always disable the windows screen saver and monitor powerdown while Zoom Player is running.

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Mouse) that enables the Mouse's middle click (wheel click) to reset DirectShow Zooming.

* New Settings (Adv. Options / Interface / Mouse) that enable the Mouse's left click combined with holding either the Alt or Ctrl keys to pan the DirectShow Zoomed video (panning is currently limited to the EVR video renderer).

* New Setting (Adv. Options / Interface / Mouse Wheel) that allows the DirectShow Zoom In/Out functions to be assigned to the mouse wheel.

* New extended "exDirectShowZoom" function used to specify a zoom-in factor when using a DirectShow video renderer. Unlike standard Zoom-in, DirectShow based zooming works even in windowed mode.

* New "fnDSZoomIn" and "fnDSZoomOut" functions that Zoom into and out of the video area when using a DirectShow video renderer. Unlike standard Zoom-in, DirectShow based zooming works even in windowed mode.

* New Comm API message #1705 notifying of a subtitle stream change.

* New Comm API message #1605 notifying of an audio stream change.

* New "TimelineChapters" and "TimelineCBarChapters" skin scripting functions used to specify coordinates for the timeline chapter marks.

+ Optimized skin parsing code.

+ Comm API message #1702 (get subtitle stream names), only worked in DVD mode. It now works for media mode subtitle steams as well.

+ The 'Current Position' is now horizontally centered in the chapter editor.

+ The font size used when creating contact sheets was too small, making the text unreadable when creating lower resolution contract sheet images.

+ Restored subtitle compatibility with the latest version of ffdshow. Using the ffdshow subtitle rendering option should now work.

- Playing media files with both embedded and external subtitle tracks with the embedded subtitle tracks set as both not-default and not-forced, the next subtitle track function would require several tries to properly show the correct subtitle track and at times, the OSD pop-up may have shown the wrong active subtitle track name.

- Adding a chapter point to a media file would list the new chapter in the wrong order within the chapter editor.

- Removing chapters using the chapter editor did not prompt to erase the chapter files when all chapters were removed, causing the chapters to re-appear after re-loading the media.

- Using the next/previous chapter buttons would pop an action OSD containing character encoding instead of the actual character. For example "&comma" instead of ",".

- The 'Show OSD filename when opening a new file' setting stopped working.
- Detaching the Control Bar when using MadVR as the video renderer would cause the control bar to appear twice under certain circumstances.

- Setting the control bar to appear at the top/bottom of the screen instead of the video area would not work when using MadVR as the video renderer.

- Disabling the "Auto Play" setting broke the "Automatically restore the last media position on replay" feature.

- With "Auto-Size User Interface to fit Source Video Resolution (on load)" and "Limit Auto-Size to User Interface Height" settings enabled, playing a video while fullscreen and then exiting fullscreen would have resulted in a window the same size as the source video's full resolution instead of only adjusting the height to compensate for the aspect ratio.

- Searching for some buttons using the options dialog's search feature would prevent the searched buttons from being clicked until the search dialog was closed first.

- Enabling the 'Always start with media subtitles hidden' setting would cause a 'Play' OSD to pop-up when playing a media file containing subtitles.

- The current time and date did not appear on any fullscreen navigation interface based on the virtual keyboard (Rename, New Folder, etc).

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.

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


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.
