Optimized for 4K DHR PowerDVD18 plays much more than just DVDs and Blu-rays.

This year’s CyberLink PowerDVD is here, and as you would expect it’s still a fantastic solution for anyone wanting to play media at its highest quality.

In essence, PowerDVD is the sort of premium media player that just a few years ago would have had people paying several hundred dollars for. As you would expect, it can handle media from just about any source, either local or online.

As publisher Cyberlink states, ‘for video, audio, photos, VR 360° content and even YouTube or Vimeo, PowerDVD18 is your essential entertainment companion’.

New features for 2018 include:

  • Optimized for 4K DHR
  • Supports Ultra HD Blu-ray, 4K, HEVC/H.265 and HDR10 content
  • Watch 2.35:1 movies on 21:9 monitors in full screen mode

  • Playback 4K HDR and 360 videos on YouTube and Vimeo
  • Better VR experience: Supports Microsoft Mixed Reality headsets, HTC, VIVE, and Oculus Rift

Easy to use

Power DVD is easy to install, powerful, and easy to use. In fact, it’s refreshingly straightforward to use. The learning center is also easy to use and should be the first port of call for new users.

While there are other notable free media players out there, there isn’t another contender out there that can touch a finger to its quality on Windows based machines. At the time of writing, it’s also the only software that can play Ultra HD Blu-Ray discs on a Windows PC.

Photos

The onboard photo viewer is also particularly notable and has some really good options for displaying your pictures, including the one to organize them by their metadata, which is nice. There’s also a great option to have photos uploaded automatically from your phone as you take them, and will also let you stream movies to mobile devices, (with subtitles), so you can watch your content as you move about.

Watch YouTube Live with always on mini view

Evolution, not revolution

Compared to the 2017 version, however, there’s not really much making the hum for. While improvement over last year’s edition are welcome, there’s nothing here that should have you running out to purchase 2018’s new software. Of course, if you’re on the subscription plan, the new edition will upgrade automatically.

Conclusions

Overall, PowerDVD18 is streets ahead of any free media player out there and is a must-have for those who demand the best quality from their media; getting a thumbs-up from Filehippo.com.
