Damn, I thought PowerDVD XP has loaded features... WinDVD4 has 4 times the features of your full version PowerDVD XP. Ouch.
Check the babe... I mean Press Release. (http://www.intervideo.com/jsp/Press.jsp?mode=05-08-2002)

It looks like AS,the way their coming out with things so fast,hell it used to be you could have something for a few months,and still be more or less up to date.Now you'd have to buy new about every damn week.Well I guess it makes for lower prices,and hopefully better products.Thanks for the post :D

OMG, took me less than 5 secs to d/l the prog. I'll give it a swirl tonight and compare the sucker w/ my delux PowerDVD XP. I think I smell a review...

Alright folk, I've came up with a preliminary on the WinDVD 4 after 30 minutes of Ocean's Eleven, which is encoded in DD 5.1. I'll test some shit w/ DTS in the final review.
- MSI K7T 266 Pro w/ XP 1800+ @ 1.7G
- WinXP Pro
- Philips Acoustic Edge w/ Cambridge FP1000 4.1 Speakers
- Pioneer 16x DVD
- Has Hardware Decode Acceleration and Hardware Color Acceleration
- Has three video modes: Window, Full Screen, Desktop (back ground displays the movie. a la ATI AIW style)
- Resolution has less noise than PowerDVD XP, picture's very sharp, and image quality is superior than PowerDVD XP
- Has so many audio options it's rediculous
- Audio Effects include Theatre and Late Night
- DSP Effects include Rock, Bass, Hall, Soft, Vocal, Echo, Karaoke
- SRS Effects include Dialog Clarity, TruBass, and bass adjustment.
- And it has the Audio Mode, which lets you pick Speakers or Headphones. Sub option in here involves setting up Dolby Prologic II and WinDVD's own version of surround, InterVideo ICE.
- Plus version gives you DTS ES, aka 6.1 and 7.1.
- Excellent picture quality, bright and clear.
- Excellent audio quality, rich sound w/ context, deep bass
- Operates DVD at low rpm, which means you can watch pr0n w/ speakers on, instead of headphones.
- Damn thing crashes itself every 15 minutes, w/ and w/o hardware acceleration.
- Buggy. Give me a damn patch already.
- Too damn expensive. w/ WinDVD 3, it'll cost you $50 for Plus. w/o or switching from PowerDVD, it'll cost you $60.
Covering up Jr. before hitting the EMP button. :hehe:
Man, this looks so much like PowerDVD XP's toolbar, except the play button's on the opposite side. Maybe not... w/ all them audio options.
