The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 9.0
Zoom Player is a feature-rich and powerful tool that lets you play a very large number of video and audio file formats, including MKV, AVI, MOV, WMV, ASF, RMVB, FLIC, OGM, WebM, OGV, VOB, FLV, 3GP, MP4, and many more.
High-definition video files are also supported. Furthermore, it lets you load and play DVDs, listen to the streams of online radio stations, or view graphic files.

Zoom Player is a comprehensive application that supports all the important features and functions that one would expect a media player to include. It allows creating and managing playlists, it contains an audio equalizer, it sports deinterlacing and filtering options, it includes support for bookmarks and play history, and many other more. It also allows you to change video parameters like brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, etc. while the video is playing. The radio station manager is handy if you want to connect to online radios and listen to their broadcasts.

Though it’s feature-rich, Zoom Player is also easy to use. Its neat and straightforward interface will pose no problems even to complete beginners.

To sum it all up, though not very popular or impressive, Zoom Player is still a decent choice for anyone looking for a powerful yet easy-to-use media player.


  • Easy to use.
  • Supports a lot of formats.
  • Can play radio streams.


  • Adware-like behaviour (attempts to install additional software which are not needed for its functioning).

    "We have used ECA for 5 years with much success. When ECA 5.0 was introduced, I was very interested to see the upgrade and the features that had been added. One of my favorite new features in 5.0 is the ability to copy previously configured grade settings. This saves time from not having to enter each set individually. Now you can copy and make minor changes as needed.
    Another benefit of 5.0 is the Save to PDF option. It is so much easier now to send the reports electronically or post them on the shared drive.
    ECA is a very user-friendly program. However, occasionally, there may be a situation that requires tech support from the company. I experienced such a circumstance recently and was exceedingly satisfied with the amount of support I received. I am still in contact with the company as they work to continually make improvements for the benefit of the users.
    I highly recommend ECA for creating your class lists. We have over 1800 students and I cannot imagine completing the task without ECA! It's a must have program for every elementary school!"
