With the advancement in technology, media has evolved to flawless qualities that are found in a large variety of formats. In order to properly enjoy them, you need to put applications such as Zoom Player MAX to good use. It is a powerful media workstation capable of running nearly any media file out there.
At startup, it can be preconfigured for desktops and laptops, home theater PCs or touchscreen devices. In terms of visuals, the application does not strongly differ from similar media players. Its interface is appealing, with a decent preview section, playback options clearly visible and customizable skin colors, as well as support for downloadable content.
Loading desired items is easily done by dragging them over the main window, or through the dedicated explorer. This includes decrypted Blu-ray discs whose main movies can be played as well as YouTube videos (by URL). A playlist manager can be brought up that is home to all inserted elements, giving you the possibility to save and load already existing lists. A media library jukebox mode comes in handy for getting missing metadata for movie or TV posters, titles, descriptions, and so on.
Zoom Player MAX tries to bring a little variety to media rendering. It can switch to several modes in order to become more accessible, depending on the intended purpose. By default, you run in the media mode, which basically represents a basic look and feel. The tool remembers the last media position on exit.
For music usage, you can switch to audio mode, which turns off the preview section so that it does not take up necessary space on your desktop. Ringtones for mobile phones can be created from playing media. Furthermore, the application lets you take advantage of a DVD mode, providing a set of dedicated content navigation options. It's also possible to remotely schedule media content for later playback via TCP/IP.
Fortunately, all features the application puts at your disposal can be attributed a custom combination of keys. Seeing how you can work with quite a lot of provided content, this comes in handy as it saves a great deal of time, and makes everything more comfortable. Customizable mouse gestures are also available.
Furthermore, you can enhance the sound that reaches your ears to make it clean or fine-tune it. This is done with the help of an integrated equalizer that gives you access to several presets as well as the possibility to save your own configurations.
The same can be said for videos, as a few color correction sliders can completely transform the clip. Additionally, you can switch to fullscreen for a clearer view, create chapters in videos or carefully have them trimmed.
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Zoom Player MAX is a handy application you can use as an alternative to the already existing giants. It comes fully equipped with all it needs to be able to render media files flawlessly, doing its job well overall.
