PowerDVD is a media player from CyberLink Corporation that is used for watching DVD video on a computer. Depending on the version, PowerDVD not only offers industry leading movie playback quality, but adds many more features to enhance your viewing experience.
If you find yourself watching videos and movies more often on your computer, then PowerDVD can give you a lot more functionality than the standard player that may come with your computer system. Not only will you get the maximum video quality that your system is capable of, but there is a set of tools that will let you change positions, create remixes, and get online to share these remixes on the MoovieLive online movie community.
PowerDVD has always kept up with the times by offering more features and options than other similar products. Since its first release, there have been a total of nine versions of PowerDVD, each adding functionality to the prior version.
For example, Version 3 added screen snapshots, digital zoom, toolbar navigation, a repeat mode, and bookmarks. Version 4 introduced better screen capture, auto-resume playback, mouse scrolling, and decoders for DTS Digital Surround Sound and Dolby Pro Logic II.
Version 5 would let you stretch time up to two times faster or slower than normal as well as adding enhancements for better picture quality when viewing on LCD screens. Version 6 added high definition video playback of WMV-HD and MPEG-2 HD files. It also added better color and luminance, smoother playback, and supported 4:3 and 16:9 DVD content.
Version 19 gave you the ability to move subtitles, support for H.264 high-definition playback, and five new interface modes. Version 8 added high definition audio and video standards such as AVCHD, and Blu-Ray. It added pure home theater audio sound, a movie collection, movie remix, and access to Version 9 introduced TrueTheater technology, classic and cinema modes, animated browsing, and additional movie library and online features.
PowerDVD is considered the best of the DVD players on the market. No matter which version you have, there are features that will make your computer movie viewing a more enjoyable experience.
