CyberLink PowerDVD 14
Store, sync and share your media online

CyberLink PowerDVD 14 is the latest edition of the powerful do-everything media player.

As with previous editions, the program can play 45+ video and 13 audio formats, as well as CDs, DVD and Blu-ray discs, and all your photos. It's able to browse online content from YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo and Flickr. And there's real depth to all of this. PowerDVD 14 doesn't just play AVIs and MP4s: it supports H.265, AVCHD 2.0, lossless APE & ALAC audio, 4K, MKV and more.

There are all the usual PowerDVD extras. TrueTheater enhances video and sound for the best quality; an ultra-configurable library helps you manage your media collection; there's excellent media streaming (DLNA) support, built-in online movie info, a music store and more, all of which can be remotely controlled from iPhone or Android devices via PowerDVD's companion app.

Version 14 comes with a free year's subscription to 10GB of space on CyberLink Cloud, where you can store media, sync it across your devices or share it with others.

This new focus on the cloud is supported by a new Power Media Player app, which supports streaming or copying your media across iPad, Android and Windows 8 devices.

Expanded video format support sees PowerDVD able to handle High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC/H.265) movies, the latest UltraViolet content, and more.

PowerDVD sees much improved YouTube support. "Pin" a YouTube video and it can be watched offline, and viewed just like any other clip: upscaled to HD or 3D, enhanced using TrueTheater, and browsed via PowerDVD's fast forward and slow-motion features.

CyberLink says the new release includes a further 50 new and enhanced features.

As you might expect, the end result is far from lightweight. After installation and setup, PowerDVD grabbed 391MB on our test PC.

The program does have an amazing feature set, though. It's easy to use, and despite its many modules, launched and worked very quickly for us. If you need a media player which does absolutely everything, PowerDVD is still the very best choice around.

Please note, PowerDVD is available in three main editions. We've described the high-end PowerDVD 14 Ultra. PowerDVD 14 Pro drops CyberLink Cloud, 3D and UltraViolet CFF, as well as the Power Media Player. PowerDVD 14 Standard also drops Blu-ray and AVCHD support.

In addition, the 30 day trial build has some limitations. It doesn't support HEVC/H.265 playback; you only get 2GB of CyberLink Cloud space, and CyberLink Cloud for Power Media Player isn't available.

What's new in build 4412?

- Adds support for AMD Fluid Motion Video, making Blu-ray playback visually smoother.
- Resolves crash issues reported by the CyberLink Issue Reporter.
- Resolves the issue that there is no audio output when bitstreaming non-decoded DTS-HD audio over HDMI.
- Enhances the visual viewing quality of photos.
- Enhances the media library browsing experience and provides faster thumbnail loading.

Verdict:

CyberLink PowerDVD 14 is an exceptionally powerful media player with some welcome new additions. If you need a player which does everything, this is probably it.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
