WinDVD or PowerDVD?



OK, which one is better, InterVideo WinDVD or CyberMedia PowerDVD?


I’m not picky. As long as it plays DVDs, I’m happy. I’m running PowerDVD.


Prefers PowerDVD.


PowerDVD is usually preinstalled on Win XP when you buy a PC so much users prefer PowerDVD


I use WinDVD (version 5) and I like it alot. It does everything that I want it to. I have tried PowerDVD (it came as a software bundle with a DVD recorder I bought) but switched back to WinDVD when I needed to reinstall my OS.

I had no problems with PowerDVD and probably would have continued using it if not for the fact that when I wanted to install the program again, I couldn’t find the program disk and just used WinDVD instead.



I stick with PowerDVD.:slight_smile: I found WinDVD to be a resource hog.


I prefer WinDVD. I generally see more complaints/problems with Power DVD on the various forums that I visit. I recommend trying them both and seeing which one you like though.


I use PowerDVD 6 Deluxe with all the plug-ins. Works great for me with 5.1 Audigy 2 ZS sound card and 5.1 Klipsch speakers. Everyone has their preference.

Also using PowerDVD 6, working pretty well. I’m happy with it :slight_smile:
