Cool WinDVD 9 Plus

Many people do not like WinDVD and its Trimersion affect. I must now recant and say that the new ALL2HD trimersion is very noticable and improves SD sources extremely well! As a matter of fact - it may be the best upconversion that I've seen. I upgraded my 8 platinum to 9 Plus after seeing what it did for some cheesey SD DVD's that we had at the school board. I didn't go for the Plus Blu-ray because I have two programs that play BD - didn't need it - but the other programs didn't handle SD as well as WinDVD 9 did. Some may not like it, but I'm loving it - alot!!!!

Default WinDVD 9 vs. PowerDVD 8

prerich,

Do you prefer WinDVD to Cyberlink's PowerDVD?

As you may know, the latest version 8 supports HD audio and video formats including Blu-ray and AVCHD. It also has "Movie Remix" feature which allows users to "create their own stories" by rearranging scenes, adding dialog and commentary, subtitles, and on-screen effects, something I would enjoy trying out on "Memento"!

"Now CyberLink PowerDVD 8 not only offers the best movie experience on the PC, it offers a totally new way to get immersed in movie entertainment," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "PowerDVD extends the user experience from the realm of watching movies on the PC to a new online universe of shared experiences. With a built-in database for organizing a movie collection, and the ability to share information, opinions, and remixes via the online community MoovieLive, PowerDVD users now have more ways than ever to enjoy movies."

WinDVD 9 Plus - hands down. I'm even thinking about upgrading to the Plus Blu-ray version (I didn't do that because I already have 2 BD players - PDVD 7 ULTRA and Total Media Theatre, but the problems that people have encountered with PDVD - They have no problem with WinDVD 9 Plus BD). WinDVD 9 is worth it just for its all2hd upconversion it looks great!
