Editors' Review

+

Don't let the hit-or-miss nature of the installation documentation throw you. Even if you have to update components on your machine, you're only moments away from DVD-viewing satisfaction. With an easy-to-use and visually pleasing interface and a bevy of extra features, WinDVD is a demoware dream come true.

The app provides unlimited, theater-perfect playback for the duration of its two-week run on your PC. A slider control improves on the usual Forward and Back buttons, so pinpointing your favorite movie scenes is as fun as watching them in the program's crystal-clear display. Advanced viewing-time controls let you repace the action to fit your available viewing time. The program also features a handful of audio options for Dolby systems and simple headphones.

A full complement of video options includes basic adjustments such as color, contrast, and gamma, as well as advanced tools for monitor calibration. The program's massive 30MB frame also contains great capturing and handling tools for up to six frames at a time. You also can choose to have the movie play as your desktop picture. Give the supersize WinDVD enough CPU room to run and enjoy unfettered viewing pleasure.

Summary

"Expensive splash screen - Not much else."

July 08, 2013  |  By NOTHAPPYDAMMIT

 |  Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 11

Pros

Splash screen actually shows.....(That's a pro?)

Cons

Doesn't launch. Useless. No errors. Nothing. Just a splash screen and then.....you guessed it - nothing.

Summary

If you like hideously expensive splash screens, then this program is for you. If you are the other 99.9% of the PC userbase that actually expect a program to launch after you buy it, don't waste your money.

"Works as advertised: plays DVD's and Blu-Ray discs"

April 20, 2013  |  By mrterryc

 |  Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 11

Pros

Very clean interface that doesn't overwhelm you with too many possibilities. It doesn't try to be the "all everything" media player that others like PowerDVD seem to do. It just works.

Cons

None for my needs.

"Full retail version works perfectly"

January 27, 2013  |  By Mergatroid Mania

 |  Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 11

Pros

Does everything it says it will do.

Cons

Haven't found any yet.

Summary

I see a lot of people here who either don't know what they're doing, don't understand how to read, or have really bad PCs that need a windows reinstall. I'm using the full retail version and it works perfectly. It's not an editor (learn to read buddy), it's a video player that will play blu-rays. If you want a decent blu-ray player for your home theater PC, this one works great (over HDMI or DVI). By the way, if you honestly think a blu-ray will play over VGA in HD, you have a lot of reading to do. Here's a big hint. Look up HDMI and DRM. I'm using Windows 7 64 bit and having zero problems.

August 30, 2012  |  By MikeLL28

none at all

"Trialware plays Blu-Ray, Retail doesn't. Beware!!!"

August 06, 2012  |  By smehea

 |  Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 11

Pros

Clean user interface

Cons

Trialware will play Blu-Ray on a standard Vga connection monitor without any problem. The retail version doesn't and comes back with an error stating it detected 'Analog Output'. Adding the SlySoft AnyDvd Hd plugin will trick it into playing blu-ray but this costs £55 and defeats the purpose. Corel support was absolutely terrible with the usual answers, 'update your patches \ drivers, have you checked the knowledgebase?', etc. Then no response after a week of badgering for an answer. In the end I brought forward my decision to purchase a new monitor with DVI output and it worked straight away. But this is still a con, trialware should reflect a timed version of the final product, not something which cons you into buying it's bigger sibling.

Summary

Once working the product does the job although I'm sure there are better applications out there. They just cost a lot more.
You must use a monitor with DVI output for it to work and make sure your installed copy is updated with the latest service pack (v7).
Corel support is rubbish and not worth the time taken to log a fault.

"Worthless application."

April 27, 2012  |  By gfriesm

 |  Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 11

Pros

None. The applocation does not work.

Cons

Computer freezes when you try to watch a DVD with Corel WinDVD. You cannot even get out of the application using the task manager. The only option is to force shut down the computer and reboot. The application simply doesn't work.

"Worked ONCE only"

March 03, 2012  |  By wpankey

 |  Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 11

Pros

Got version 10 to play ONE blu-ray and it worked fine, but after that it won't even work any more.

Cons

Both version WinDVD "Pro" 10 and 11 have some kind of issue and crash immediately on Splash Screen before the program even starts. Have contacted customer support. We'll see if they can offer some suggestions but I am doubtful since they haven't fixed the issue from versions 10 to 11. I can't be the ONLY one experiencing this.

Summary

I want my money back to buy a program that works. I'm slapping myself for buying two different versions of this program.
