    I've been using a "found" version of Zoom Player Max for a long time, V7 IIRC, just debating about buying the latest Zoom Player Max http://www.inmatrix.com/products.shtml, anybody got any alternatives to recommend?, must be Win8 compatible.

    Cheers

    VLC should work on Windows 8 and a Metro integrated version is planned as well. Not sure how well the current one is working. Then again, Media Player Classic (MPC-HC) is worth a shot as well.

    I have Cyberlink Media Suite 9 Ultra and PowerDVD 12 Ultra but I've never got on with PowerDVD for playing anything other than DVD\BD, I might stick to that for a while. I've had VLC installed for years but I've used Zoom as my default player for last few years, before that it was jetAudio, primarily because Fosi always has the latest version.

    Why do you have so many? Do you play lots of different formats or do you do need the program to do more things then simply playing the video or change basic settings?

    I used to jump from player to player but then i got tired of installing codecs and packs and crap and found VLC, haven´t found a single file i can´t play or do something that the player does not support.

    but i´m no pro i just listen to music and watch movies etc.
