    Hi there basically the question is in the title,

    I have tried WMP10 which looked alot better than VLC, Much sharper looking with far less blur to the edges of objects etc.

    I was just wondering what players you lot use which give the best results ?

    Zoomplayer is just a front-end/GUI, won't play didly squat without codecs - Elecard/WinDVD/WM Player etc.

    Just got TheaterTek 2. Although it does cost around £40.00, this is a massive improvement over VLC.

    I agree with KL. Theatertek 2.02 puts out an incredible image with HD .ts and .tp files, VLC doesn't come close but it is free !

    I am using ZP with Sonic Decoder. It have great pic. Plus it was the only one to be able to play back HD Hotbird feed (24mb/s) smoothly.

    There's no trial period AFAIK.

    IIRC I think it works something like this:

    You buy it, you try it, if you like it you activate it, if not you request a refund.
    Once you've activated it you can't get a refund.

    Zoom Player is the ultimate player for DVD and HDTV. VLC is the worst piece of multimedia software I've ever seen. Everything else goes in between.

    ZoomPlayer is the best because it gives you full control and unprecedented flexibility. Nothing else comes even close. It is true that it can't play MPEG2/TS/WMV-HD by itself - it requires you to purchase third party codecs on top of it, but this is actually an advantage. You can use different codecs for different types of media, which equates to always being able to use the best without changing the familiar, very user friendly interface.
    For HDTV I use ZoomPlayer with Cyberlink (PowerDVD 5) and Intervideo (WinDVD6) codecs.
