The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 8.5
Zoom Player comes as a powerful tool which you can use to play your multimedia formats. It supports a very large number of video, audio and even graphic formats. Some of them are: AVI, MP4, MPG, MPEG, XVID, 3GP, MP3, WAV, ASF, JPG, PNG, etc.
The program doesn’t have high system requirements and runs well even with 512 MB of RAM.
Although I enjoyed testing the application and its features, I was a bit disappointed by its price. We all know that a lot of other multimedia players offer the same tools and features for free. Even so, one particular aspect that I liked about Zoom Player is that it allows you to change video parameters like brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, etc. while the video is playing.
Also, in addition to basic playback functions, Zoom Player also includes a radio station manager. It automatically scans for online radio stations and offers you a comprehensive list from which you can select the desired one.The graphical interface of Zoom Player is very appealing (even in its default “skin”). But you further customize it by accessing the Skin selector.
I kindly recommend you to try this player. It has a lot of features that you might find useful.
