Editors' Review

+
The barely adequate Advanced DVD Player Pro plays DVDs passably well, but its interface has a cumbersome and amateurish look, with large separate panels for the playlist and the file tree. It doesn't let you bookmark interesting scenes to quickly replay afterward. Nor can it automatically resume playback from the moment you last stopped it. Most frustrating, it doesn't let you pause playback and navigate the movie using the time line. If you're looking for a software DVD player, you have plenty of other choices. We would steer clear of this one.

"Installs Codec"

November 10, 2012  |  By markjenk

 |  Version: Advanced DVD Player Pro 3.07

Pros

Like evilscientist4hire said it loads the codec you need for Windows Media Player 11 to play your DVD.

Cons

The interface stinks, and it didn't seem to work, but like evilscientist4hire I didn't try to work with it much.

If you have Vista it installs the codec so WMP stops complaining about that but WMP sti9ll won't play DVD gives a message about screen resolution being too high.

Summary

On Xp use it to get the codec and then install WMP 11.
On Vista forget it.

"Everyone missed the obvious awesome benefeit!!!"

March 16, 2011  |  By evilscientist4hire

 |  Version: Advanced DVD Player Pro 3.07

Pros

This software provides the codec that allows the DVD player to actually work in Windows Media Player 11.0.xxxx.xxxx. This is a single feature review. I have no intention of comparing any other features or facets of this product.

Cons

Ok, so the Advanced DVD Player Pro 3.07 user interface isn't that great. Who cares, I've never used the interface, I just use the free codec to view DVDs in Windows Media Player 11 for free. Please review other posts for a thorough review.

Summary

This software allows you to play DVDs in Windows Media Player... and its free :)

"Very basic, perfect if that's all you need!!!"

July 16, 2010  |  By KevinBriles

 |  Version: Advanced DVD Player Pro 3.07

Pros

Took about 10 seconds to install, which honestly made me concerned, but it immediately launched, and at the moment I am watching my movie while I'm working on other projects. Rock on.

Cons

I don't see all kinds of little features badda boom, badda bing, etc etc...but hey, I'm watching my movie, and there you go. :)

Summary

If all you need is a DVD Player, (Ben Stiller voice) "Do it, do it,.....do it."

"Very basic, but functional DVD player!"

January 03, 2010  |  By pldneptune

 |  Version: Advanced DVD Player Pro 3.07

Pros

Seems to have good audio and video performance combined with a very simple, but functional user interface. The most that I can say is that it works, unlike some other DVD players that I have tried!

Cons

Does not have a separate control panel, but offers some mouse access to controls. No help screen. Primitive user interface lacks many features offered with other DVD players currently available.

"Only the product name is advanced"

December 16, 2009  |  By giddyma

 |  Version: Advanced DVD Player Pro 3.07

Pros

Easy to install

Cons

Needed a hard-to-find codec to run an mpg mp4 format video. And then it looked terrible quality.
Deliberately doesn't let you pause videos, unless you upgrade.
A waste of time
