Quicktime Player vs Zoom Player

In this opportunity, I want to recommend Zoom Player WMV Professional as the best video player for Windows I have tried so far. Among many other advanced features, the following are the one I'd like to stress:
  • Play/Pause toggle by left mouse click
  • Easy aspect ratio adjustment
  • Cute and simple default skin
  • Smooth playback for Quicktime (.mov) videos even at full screen whereas Quicktime Player itself displays jagged edges.
  • Easy real-time frame capture by ALT+F
  • Easy generation of cut scripts via the Scene Cut Editor, useful to play just the part of a scene you like in a loop
  • Customizable contact sheet creator, useful for showing preview stills
