  • Performance Rating: StarStarStarStar

  • Support for WMV-HD
  • Dolby Headphone and SRS Tru Surround XT support
  • Excellent power management options for use with portable computers
  • Kudos for included H.264 support


  • Screen capture ability not present on all material
  • Contextually-aware interface leads to potential "new user" confusion over locating some features
  • Needs better bass management, time alignment, and level control options to be truly useful using analogue sound card outputs
  • Deinterlacing is sub-par


WinDVD 7 Platinum is designed for movie nuts, bleeding-edge technology aficionados and even has some excellent features optimized for business travelers. There is a host of new features in version 7 including UPnP player, H.264 support, brand new interface design & controls, and external subtitiles control.
