What's new in Nero 2016 Platinum?

The new Nero 2016 now gives multimedia fans an even more advanced and powerful all-in-one solution for managing, streaming, playing, editing, ripping copying, burning and sharing files. With Nero 2016, creativity has no limits when it comes to making the most of your photos, videos and music in exceptional quality. The Nero 2016 Classic and Nero 2016 Platinum suites provide full support for Windows® 10 and introduce over 20 great new features which revolve around multimedia streaming functions, the integration of smartphones, tablets and smart TVs, as well as auto-optimized picture and sound quality, alongside many usability improvements and increased performance.

“Nero 2016 takes account of today’s challenging digital media landscape and changing user behavior by offering the highest level of connectivity between PCs, mobile devices and smart TVs,” says Jürgen Kurz, CEO of Nero AG. “Mobile media consumption, media streaming and a rapid increase in ultra-high-definition images and videos play a major role in the digital lives of our customers. They typically face the challenge of having to manage thousands upon thousands of photographs, video clips and music files, while being able to consume them on all possible devices. Nero 2016 brings this chaos back into order – quick and easy!”

Significant improvements have been made in streaming from and to any DLNA/ UPnP-capable device, enabling completely new ways to fully enjoy digital media. This is just one example of how the Nero 2016 suites make the ideal software companion to meet today’s digital media challenges.

New App: Nero Streaming Player Connects Smartphone, Tablet, Smart TV and PC

The Nero Streaming Player is a new, easy-to-use player app for smartphone and tablet that plays slideshows, videos and music on a mobile device directly to a smart TV in the living room. At the same time, it serves as a remote control, browser and playback device for the Nero MediaHome media server. The browsed content can then be sent directly to a smart TV. The new iOS and Android app thus combines the powerful functionality of a PC media server, with the browsing convenience of mobile devices and the first-class picture quality of large smart TVs.

Nero 2016 Classic – Digital Companion for Every Occasion

Nero 2016 Classic is an all-in-one multimedia solution offering proven quality and functionality. A new video-editing preview function in Full HD quality with the option to turn a second monitor into a preview screen makes the digital experience even more rewarding.

It might come as a surprise that over 25 percent of discs burned with Nero are still audio CDs. The new version of Nero Classic now allows music videos and radio recordings to be imported directly as audio files and to have the sound quality automatically normalized and optimized. Furthermore, improved hardware support for ripping and converting video and audio has been coupled with support for the latest and most popular mobile devices, which can be easily be selected from a list without having to worry about formats and settings. This guarantees best media quality on every device when playing, streaming, editing or sharing.

Nero 2016 Platinum – The High-End Digital Companion

Nero 2016 Platinum comes with even more enhancements and improvements. On top of all the features of the Nero 2016 Classic suite, Nero 2016 Platinum packs additional high-end functionalities for a more sophisticated digital lifestyle. The recently added “stashimi” music recorder allows a personal music collection to be created for free by using a wish list function to find and record MP3s from over 100,000 web radio stations. Users of 4K and UHD TVs, PCs, smartphones and camcorders also benefit from the integrated 4K support for top-level quality at every level. 4K video editing, 4K slideshows and 4K playback offer maximum viewing enjoyment in the living room. Moreover, the hundreds of professional video effects, and design and menu templates for every occasion make the Platinum version an incredibly value for money.

Additional new features in Nero 2016:

- Easy application launch and overview with the new scalable Nero Launcher
- Create and print professionally designed disc covers, inserts and labels with the integrated Nero CoverDesigner, including tons of new design and print templates
- Nero MediaHome for a customized media library that you can take with you; trouble-free transfer of your media collection including all metadata, face-recognition and geo tags to newly installed PCs

Collection of Mobile Apps

Numerous iOS and Android apps open up additional fun and exciting ways to use Nero 2016.

- New! Nero Streaming Player: streams media from and to a smartphone or tablet
- Nero AirBurn: burns from a smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi directly to the PC
- Nero Manual Apps: provide expert advice on using Nero PC products like a pro
- Nero MediaHome WiFi Sync: transfers media between PC and mobile devices via Wi-Fi

Choice of Full Spectrum of Performance or Stand-alone Solutions

I agree with the previous poster, qz3fwd; Nero AG no longer sells software that will directly play a Blu-Ray disc in a Blu-Ray drive in a computer. I encountered this firsthand as I described here on Nero AG's forum: ...

What adds insult to injury is that if you attempt to view a Blu-Ray disc with Nero Essentials or MediaHome the software launches an advert that says,

"Want to enjoy your high definition movies from Blu-ray discs?

Nero Blu-ray Player enables you to playback Blu-ray and AVCHD discs in razor-sharp clarity and optimized HD Audio and Dolby (R) surround quality. It also supports additional streaming content on BD Live discs.

To access Blu-ray playback functionality in Nero Blu-ray Player a purchase is required. Click the "Info" button to find our offer."


"The feature you are trying to access is not available in your product.

Click the "Info" button to find our offer."

With both ads after clicking the "Info" button one is redirected via weblink to purchase "Nero 2016 Platinum". This is despite the fact that none of Nero's current software offerings have Blu-Ray disc player functions. In my personal opinion; this is not only misleading, but also deceptive and fraudulent advertising. Despite that this situation has been reported on Nero AG's own forums on multiple occasions, they still haven't taken any substantive action correct the misleading web link redirects.

Nero 2016 DOES NOT include the Blu Ray player application anymore and it is not obviously stated anywhere!

That is why I voted the suite at an overall score of 5.

Nero Vision Extra Issues

Error when using cuda with ps3 profile (when avc profile is used, no error)

Ps3 Profile settings for quality bitrate is stuck at 256 kbit/s when moving slider, and never displays actual change when moving slider

If moving the quality bitrate slider in ps3 profile to top level (256 kbit/s shown in settings) after finishing selection, the final “output file” information displays 100 kbit/s and at the lowest level will show 10 Kbit/s, even though the slider shows no change in the actual settings menu

Lc-aac 5.1 audio is stuck at 77kbs, not acceptable for this type of audio ( he-aac comes out at 73 kbs which is in the acceptable range)

All settings and profiles that do actually work are encoded as a file saved with .0001 at the end which is unrecognizable for ps3 and probably a lot of other forms of players ( If only the avchd encoding with dolby digital was recognizable by my ps3 )

Avc profile has a functioning quality bitrate slider, but when choosing to opt for the target file size the “out file” information shows 256 kbit/s and it encodes at that bitrate as well , regardless of the targeted file size inputted.

Contact with nero support is usless.

Stick with mediacoder, nero 9 would burn blu-ray disks but had no feature to play blu-ray content and they never addressed that issue, I'm almost certain none of these issues will be addressed either in nero 10 most importantly the fact that lc-aac audio is stuck at 77 kbps

videohelp still has it but I wonder why Nero took down their latest release
i upgraded to v9 because i had v6 forever and vista needed the update. Still decent software but i would wish they would have added mkv to recode or nerovision. The MP3pro plug-in i purchased with v6 doesn't work with v9 and the patent activations are a PITA.

If you're thinking about buying nero 9 i would recommend you download the apps below as they do pretty much what nero 9 can - and more. All you need to do is create a GUI for a 'smartstart' to launch the individual apps haha. Cheers.
