Corel WinDVD Pro

CNET 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.

    "Great video software"

    August 5, 2011  |   By t1s1

    Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 2010

    Pros

    - HD up-scaling
    - Stable
    - Even some copyright disc can't be played on other software such as cyberlink is playable with this program.

    Cons

    Not any i found.
    I have win7, 64 bit also.

    Summary

    Not the best video software yet, since cyberlink with 3D, and 480p hd up-scaling came out.
    A bit expensive for 99.99.

    "It won't play Blu-Ray DVDs"

    July 29, 2011  |   By Soltari

    Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 2010

    Pros

    None. It is useless for playing DVDs.

    Cons

    This product is useless. I bought it ($40) to play Blu-Ray discs, but when I play them it says "Your display environment does not support protected mode content"; so basically it won't play Blu-Ray DVDs.

    Summary

    It sucks. No value at all.

    "Nice player if you can get it to work..."

    July 8, 2011  |   By natakuc4

    Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 2010

    Pros

    Bluray playback.
    DVD playback.
    AVI playback.
    Easy to use.

    Cons

    Doesn't playback other common video formats such as m4v.
    Lost features from Intervideo WinDVD 8.
    WinDVD 8 has a slightly better interface.
    Installer and playback should be easy but there are conflicts.

    Summary

    As I mentioned it has conflicts and crashes even though it should be an easy installer, setup and playback. In my case I had an ATI HD Audio device as part of my graphics card for HDMI cable and a Creative Soundblaster Soundcard. In the Windows Sound and Playback Devices the ATI device is unplugged and the Creative card was enabled. WinDVD crashed upon launch. I disabled the ATI HD Audio device in device manager and it launched fine. All other players I tried worked fine regardless. Can see many many people about having similar bugs which prevents them from enjoying this software.

    "Horrid functionality and made of bloat"

    June 11, 2011  |   By nevermindme2643

    Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 2010

    Pros

    Sometimes would play a DVD. Sometimes

    Cons

    Most of the time it would NOT play a DVD. If it did the DVD often looked like I was viewing it through a Green Screen. Is listed everywhere as FREE when it's NOT. Even if it had worked I'd have to pay $40 for it. Just the install file is HUGE.

    Summary

    No. I have already uninstalled this giant bloated expensive and not free as advertised software. I was not able to watch more than a few minutes. The controls are all weird and flashy whenever i hover over them. The tool isn't worth using as Freeware, much less paying. Do people actually pay MONEY to use this? Sorry Corel. you ruined another great piece of software.

    "Works as advertised"

    May 24, 2011  |   By mattkalava

    Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 2010

    Pros

    If you want to watch blu ray on your pc then for the price this program is a bargain.

    Cons

    I had to install win7 service pack 1 (installed without any problems) for this program to work on my win7 64 bit system.

    Summary

    All my dvd's and blu ray disc's look and run great with Corel WinDVD Pro 2010. With all the discounts I got it for $25 at corel.com.

    "Very nice upgrade from the old InterWin DVD player"

    May 15, 2011  |   By oprlvr68

    Version: Corel WinDVD Pro 2010

    Pros

    Excellent video & audio quality
    Extra features (fast fwd/pause) easy to use
    More reliable than InterWin DVD player
    Cues up movies/discs much faster

    Cons

    No problems that come to mind

    Summary

    Was skeptical about this upgrade 'replacement' for my outdated InterVideo Win DVD player software. I'd had InterVideo for so long... This upgrade more than has lived up to its release. The start-up is quicker, the discs play better, and the video quality is excellent.
