I think that the video has to support it,I have seen options like that for dvds but i have never got them to work.I always says that it is unsuported.You may be able to do it with a video editing program i am sure you can find a free one to try out.

Windows media player (as well as pretty much any viewer-capable app worth its salt) supports scaling - the apparent size of the image/video, which is similar to zoom. However true zoom requires that the non-visible portions of the film be removed, as does panning, which is all a form of cropping. The way that video files are designed they need to access the data for each pixel of each frame, which is usually stored sequentially as sub-blocks. The extra processing power required to separate the zoomed/panned/etc pixels from the rest may require more processing power than required for images. And you also need to maintain a 20 to 40 framerate per second. Flash supports zooming and panning, but because it is vector-based, it doesn't have the same restrictions that compressed video/audio has. So in short, the answer to your question is that while yes it should be possible, the performace would be very poor due to the lack of native support for such operations in modern GPU's. Sorry.
