Editors' review

BlazeDVD lets you play DVDs on your computer anytime you want, and it offers a full set of controls to enhance your viewing experience. With the app's streamlined navigation, all you have to do is pop in your movie and press play. It also lets you save and convert your DVDs into a format compatible with your iPad, iPhone, iPod, or PSP.

Pros

High-quality playback: The image that this program produces is great, and to go along with it, you also get 7.1 audio channels and picture in picture. Of course, the viewing experience will only be as good as the monitor you have. But if you have the right equipment, you'll be able to enjoy a high-quality scene.

Compact controller: The controller for this program is compact and efficient, with all kinds of useful tools packed into a convenient space. You can toggle between full and small screen modes, and you can manage exactly what you want to watch, all with a few quick clicks.

Cons

Occasional crashes: The program did crash a few times on us during testing. In all cases, opening it again resolved the problem, but it can be a bit frustrating, especially if it happens frequently or in the middle of a movie.

Floating controller: When you're in fullscreen mode, and you bring up the controller, it floats a bit higher on the screen than seems ideal. Especially if you're using the controller a lot, and so don't want to hide it, it could definitely interfere with your viewing experience at times.

Bottom Line

Blaze DVD gives you the ability to play DVDs on your computer, and to save and convert them into a format compatible with your iPad, iPhone, iPod, or PSP. It does have some bugs, but overall it works well. The free trial offers limited functionality, but it lets you get a sense of what the app's controls are like. The full version costs $49.95.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of BlazeDVD 6.1.1.6.

    "It Promises a lot but delivers very little"

    January 25, 2012   |   By AndrewBest

    Version: BlazeDVD 6.0

    Pros

    Bright skin, very intuitive interface.

    Cons

    Sometimes can't play DVD, not so many options, the qulity of video and sound leaves a lot to be desired.

    Summary

    I've tried nearly 80 mediaplayers from all around the world and of all kinds, this one is on the 10's place. It's really good, but sometimes it can't play DVDs properly and I have to choose another player that plays them just right. It has everything you will need but still it feels like it lacks something and that is why I rate it so poor.

    Version: BlazeDVD 6.0

    Pros

    It worked, to play a DVD that VLC Media Player messed up with. That's the only good bit

    Cons

    After installing and running this software the sound/audio on my PC is completely missing. No system sounds, can't hear videos on Youtube, music, nothing, no sounds at all.

    The ONLY sound my system no has is when using this software to play a DVD!

    Summary

    DO NOT INSTALL!!!

    There was no BlazeDVD.exe in the installation file. Therefore the program cannot be installed.
