    what do u guys think are the best paid video players, a lot of people discuss the free players so ive already tried out most out there, now im wondering what paid players u guys know of or use?

    ive tried VLC, MPC, KMP, SPlayer, and Splash Pro, im really liking Splash Pro, but i cant seem to find any resizing option like in other players where u can zoom like 50%, or 100%, or 200% for example, anyone know if that is possible with it?

    Another go for the expensive Cyberlink PowerDVD... can't really think of any better 'video player'. Look at those features: http://www.cyberlink.com/products/powerdvd/compare-retail_en_US.html

    But, for the sake of a complete and smooth experience, make sure your hardware meets/exceeds their requirements before installing the all-powerful Ultra 3D version: http://www.cyberlink.com/products/powerdvd/powerdvd-system-requirements_en_US.html

    As for your question of video resizing, the free VLC media player (my choice) has this feature: http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=80024

    CyberLink PowerDVD 10 Ultra is the best-paid player. I am using it since its release and find it complete and smooth.

    For freeware choices, MPC-HC is the best choice. For video resizing in it, you can also use Num Pad keys (4, 6, 8, 2). In settings, you can predefine default zoom level.

    Zoom Player was a good player some couple of years ago, but I think it's a little abandoned lately.
    ...but I really don"t know why you would go payware, while most free alternatives are better over the whole line.

    You won't find much. What can compete against brilliant free software like VLC?

    In terms of paid players, I've used Splash Pro, Zoom Player FLEX and BS.Player. They are all excellent players, and at least the former two were able to play some very large MKV-videos that free players failed to play on my laptop. BS.Player is the latest commercial alternative I'm trying because I read excellent reviews of it. Upon first glance, the feature that sets it apart from the others is that upon starting a video it contacts a number of subtitle sites and offers to download them if a match is found.

    UMPlayer Universal Multimedia Player is a great free and open source alternative to VideoLan and others. Simply you can't find something better at the moment.

    Seems to be a good player but, unfortunately, it cannot play MKV files.

    Even if kinda bloated, it will always do its magic on any given media files!

    Strange, no problems here with MKV files (Win 7 HP).

    mainly why im really not interested in VLC is that the video quality is kinda sub par to other free players, SPlayer so far has had the best video quality out of the free players ive tried (KMP, VLC, MPC) so im trying to compare what the paid players can offer in video quality.

    Splah Pro that ive tried while nice, has limited features and the quality is still worse than SPlayer

    Yeah, lots of feature but it's good because it doesn't starts any service or background processes :D
    I like that it's like an all in 1, i convert music, rip, burn cds and convert videos through it for my media player :thumb:

    I should have state that I did not try to play one, but I read somewhere on their site or forum that it couldn't. Could be that it was said so about a prior release...
