Great Player! I've got an ATI Card and display on my CRT is just great!
The DVD-decoder is the fastest I have tried (you name it...), when I open DVD-files for testing purposes on the HDD.
Sound with small stereo-system, but nice sound-card (CMEDIA, not even the latest...) is amazing.
The picture is clear, crisp and all settings can be reached easily on the skin's menu. Although I had earlier versions runnning rather slow - start/end was often very sloow, reaction times of menus, etc. to change settings were slightly higher than one would like on as famous a player as this is - now, with v. 9 I get (on the same system!) lightning fast playback/start/reaction times.
Small drawback: formerly it was possible to set the mouse-wheel's function in the config of the player, that seems to be obsolete now - rather a pity!
Still - V. 9: highly recommended!

Ease of use 10 of 10 Functionality 10 of 10 Value for money 10 of 10 Overall score 10 of 10

I have been using the full version of WinDVD 8 Platinum for several months now, and for the most part I am quite happy with it, but I have noticed some problems with it:

1. First, whenever I put a new DVD in, it automatically sets up the audio for a 7.1 setup, even though I have a 5.1 setup. I change it back, but the settings are reset whenever I change movies.

2. The DTS decoder is completely borked. I did a test with it and found that it's not doing any kind of discrete processing. I tested it with "The Simpsons Movie" as well as my DTS copy of "Apollo 13" by turning down the center channel. Dialogue that should have been routed only to the center channel was coming out through the front speakers, and occasionally the surrounds.

3. It also annoys me that the box makes no mention that in order to get HD-DVD/Blu-Ray capability, I have to more or less buy the program all over again.

That's why I gave it an 8. If the DTS decoder wasn't screwed up, it'd get a perfect 10.

I can't use any function in Video Center and Audio Center when I am watching a video file. The buttons are disabled.

after having tried Power DVD I decided to give this a go; glad I did. The new look is nice and play back is great. I thought I wold try some DVD backups since it was reported that WinDVD would not play them; must be his configuration, all six of the backups I threw at it played just as sweet as the original.

Interesting program by Intervideo - It does everything but plays backup copies of DVDs. Running the program with a back-up copy will even "LOCKUP" your system.
On the good side; this is probably now one of the best looking and sounding players available for the PC.
