Editors' Review

+
Don t let the title trick you. Action DVD & DivX Player does support popular video formats, but it CAN T play back DVDs. On closer examination, you will find out that the program is nothing else but a skin for Windows Media Player (which actually does the main job). The utility only adds a bare-bones organizer for your videos. The program displays advertising banners. Other freeware media players offer much more functionality, so we see no particular reason to bother about downloading this one, especially if you have Windows Media Player installed on your PC.

"What is this supposed to be?"

November 19, 2012  |  By Idj00t

 |  Version: Action DVD Player 2.6.9

Pros

It made me laugh, cool music in the intro.

Cons

Is not a DVD player at all, when I used it it started by playing the song "It takes two" while showing random spotlights and then a picture of a cheetah-man spinning his fist. Afterwards, I got this nag screen asking to support the revival of "Active Enterprises", whoever they are, by buying a SUPER DX version. Then this weird menu showed up with like 52 different options, most of them were activated adware like 2portalmon and none of them played DVDs.

Summary

This is one of the most misleading programs ever, it doesn't do what's advertised and the only "action" I got out of it was this weird interactive game where you can play as a fighting cheetah and even that sucked! DON'T DOWNLOAD THIS!

"THIS HAS SPYWARE AND IS LISTED AS SPYWARE FREE!?"

January 19, 2010  |  By jalogan1111111

 |  Version: Action DVD Player 2.6.9

Pros

None, unless you WANT to be infected.

Cons

Contains "Adware.Savenow" malware. Try scanning a little better CNet. Even Symantec picked it up, which doesn't say much.

Summary

Downloading will infect your PC.

"Adware"

July 17, 2008  |  By playaman1313

 |  Version: Action DVD Player 2.6.9

Pros

Didn't get a real chance to use the software, so I don't know

Cons

I tried to open it, Windows said it wasn't responding IMMEDIATELY. Next, I get a popup notification from Norton about some file with the word adware in its name. I figured from there that it is best to uninstall this crap.
