Editors' Review

+
Not nearly as advanced as its name would suggest, this freeware DVD player is barely adequate for simple playback. AdvancedDVDPlayer doesn't let you bookmark interesting scenes. It doesn't automatically resume playback from the spot you last stopped watching. Most frustrating, it doesn't let you pause a movie and navigate through it with the time line. The interface mostly consists of the playback window and the MyPlayList and Explore panels, both of which have a rudimentary, amateurish look. AdvancedDVDPlayer scores points for stability and price, but with so many superior DVD players available for free, it's hard to think of a reason to choose this one.

"A new capability for Windows Media Player"

October 19, 2013  |  By StanPatz

 |  Version: Advanced DVD Player 3.03

Pros

Worked seamlessly on the first try.

Cons

Some awkwardness in the download and installation.

Summary

I was dreading finding a suitable program to play DVDs on my XP computer. I was sure the software would be glitchy and break something on my old system. Advanced DVD Player kicked in and played my DVD as soon as I put it in the drive. Thanks.
