Like to play feature length motion
pictures on your desktop or laptop?
Whether you are running Windows XP or Windows Vista. There are times when we all want to use our PCs to play our favourite DVDs, and the newer BlueRay Discs, for entertainment and relaxation.
To do this you will need to install a some software on your computer. Some options are discussed below...
(If you are looking for a cheap way to play DVDs then click here.)
Install A Professional DVD Decoder:
Commercial DVD movies are encoded using a combination of MPEG-2
compressed video and audio of varying formats.
DVD Video may also include up to 32 subtitle or sub-picture tracks in various languages, including those made especially for the deaf and hearing impaired.
DVD Video may contain chapters for easy navigation.
A major selling point of DVD Video is that its storage capacity allows for a wide variety of extra features in addition to the feature film itself. This can include things like audio commentary.
More feature length films are being distributed on Blue Ray discs today. To benefit from the technology these discs use more advanced video codec's such as VC-1 and MPEG-4 AVC. Both CyberLink and Corel offer BlueRay support.
So What are the Options:
# The cheapest option is a Windows Media Player Plugin (Standard DVD support)...
# The Corel WinDVD decoder (Both standard DVDs and BlueRay)...
# The CyberLink Power DVD decoder (Both standard DVDs and BlueRay)...
