This would depend on your OS.

You can use any of them with windows, but sdl does not have the zoom function and opengl can have some issues with the menus looking skewed, missing colours etc, so DirectX can be best for windows.

What is your Operating System?

Windows 7. I found that Direct X is the only one that doesn't play the animations, however it does have the zoom and yeah OpenGL's did have weird menus! Sdl was the best overall with the exception of the zoom.

Yes, there is that issue with DirectX - none of them are perfect at the moment.
