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 05, 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 08, 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.
