While PowerDVD was once a pure DVD player, the software can now play and manage a wide variety of media.
Knows current video formats
Power DVD plays not only DVDs, but also CDs, UHD Blu-ray discs, photo, audio and video files in many formats. Among them is not only the codec H.264, which is popular for Internet videos, but also its successor HEVC (h.265). There is also support for VR glasses as well as videos in Full HD, 4K, 8K, HDR-10 as well as 360°and with subtitles. PowerDVD supports the streaming platforms YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo as well as Flickr and provides supplementary information about shows and movies on TV.
TrueTheater technology improves playback
Cyberlink’s TrueTheater technology is also said to improve movie playback with sharper details, optimized brightness, smoother motion and rich surround sound effects. Complementing this, PowerDVD can extract audio tracks from videos and save them to an audio file.
Stream video to TV or mobile device
To watch and listen to music, photos, and videos on many devices, PowerDVD streams them to TV via Chromecast and Apple TV, among others. On the go, a cloud storage supports streaming to the mobile device. In addition, friends can also see the videos and photos. You just have to send them the corresponding link to the media in the cloud storage, which can be used without an account.
Different editions of PowerDVD
PowerDVD is available in Standard, Ultra and 365 editions. The Ultra and 365 editions hardly differ and offer, among other things, cloud storage as well as streaming via Chromecast and Apple TV, which is not included in the Standard edition. The entire version comparison can be viewed at the manufacturer’s site.
