my native Windows Media Player isn’t so good at handling multiple file formats. Though there are many veteran players to replace this, Zoom Player MAX 10 is an ultimate attempt at levelling the playing ground by giving me something that looks different and works as amazing as other competitors like VLC and GNOME.
What is it
Free Zoom Player Max 10 is an impressive high customizable media player that works with the equally impressive Smart Play Technology. Couple this with the support for a wider range of media formats and an acceptable stability and you get a player that will let take charge of your media no matter how huge your media library is.
Simple but powerful shortcuts
Zoom Player’s shortcuts center around the direction keys and enter. This is more than enough to control all your player features. If you want something more advanced, you will have to try the advanced menu bar.
Total control over your media
Everything, from file browsing to playlist and playback control has been thought of in this player. Extensive control options let your bookmark, enhance or access your previous play history. These features make it a powerful tool to users who own huge media libraries and want to manage them easy.
Modularity to divide power
A highly powered user interface could intimidate an armature. Zoom Player neatly tacks away all the advanced editing features and only shows them to you when you actually need them. This makes the player an amazing tool to both professionals and the armatures.
An Install center
The install center will scan your system and make any necessary media component updates. This is quite neat especially if you don’t do any frequent updates on your own.
You firewall might reject it
Sometimes, firewalls and antivirus software might be too cautious. It will dislike anything that requests too many permissions or utilizes approaches similar to what malware uses. Good developers should know this and look for acceptable ways to getting the job done.
I don’t find it so intelligent
I thought the intelligent playlist integration will learn my playing styles better and give me the right videos whenever I play the first video in a day. I was wrong. Any slight tag misuse or folder misplacement will throw the player off its footing.
The super control over video, color and audio makes it an amazing tool to refined watchers who pay attention to HD video. Don’t expect fireworks when it comes to intelligence, and the library management system though.
