Zoom Player MAX is a powerful and full-featured media player that allows you to turn your computer into a home entertainment center within a moment. This tool supports playing not only video and audio files but also online radio stations, and also browses through image files. Despite the great number of helpful features this program includes, it's really intuitive and ease to use .

Although Windows operating system includes its own media player (Windows Media Player), it usually lacks some video and audio codecs; and the player thus isn't capable of playing all kinds of media files natively. Besides, the features set may happen to be inadequate for many users. Zoom Player MAX overtakes both issues as it supports playing a really large number of SD video, HD video and audio formats, and it also comes packed with a lot of useful features like an audio equalizer, a color control, a media library, an online radio station browser, a file browser, a download manager, a media scanner, a chapter editor and many others. The program also lets you create file associations, so you can set it as the default player for all the media file types you would like to.

Zoom Player MAX can be installed and upgraded through the utility called "Install Center" which allows you to select the codecs and optional components you want to install or upgrade in your system, as well as the language packs you want to install for the program's interface. This utility automatically detects the components and codecs that are missing or outdated in your system and suggests downloading them, so it helps you keep the program up-to-date too.

Finally, as I stated before, this media player has been designed with a special focus on simplicity. You can access its most common features and controls using the arrows and the Enter key, which is especially useful when you are playing a media file in full-screen mode. The developers call this feature the "Five-Key system".

All in all, Zoom Player MAX is a very advisable media player that is worth trying thanks to its multiple features and supported codecs and formats. The player also comes with an affordable price tag.
