CyberLink PowerDVD 17 Ultra
Store, sync and share your media online

CyberLink PowerDVD 17 is the latest edition of the powerful do-everything media player.

The program supports just about every audio and video format, pictures, CDs, DVDs, and a host of Blu-ray and high-definition disc types.

There's real depth here. You want to play 3D movies, browse 3D images? No problem. H.265 footage, XAVC-S 4K videos are supported, too. No need to worry about audio - Dolby Digital/ Plus/ TrueHD, AAC, DTS 96/24 and DTS-HD are just some of the supported formats. It even plays ISO images without you having to burn or mount them first.

That's just the start. PowerDVD's TrueTheater enhances video and sound for the best quality; an ultra-configurable library helps you manage your media collection; you can stream files locally across your network, or share them online with YouTube and Vimeo.

Version 16 brings a brand-new TV Mode, a revamped interface designed to be viewed on a large screen TV, and controlled from your mobile using the enhanced PowerDVD Remote app.

Or if you want to go further, PowerDVD can now wirelessly stream media to Roku, Chromecast and Apple TV devices, as well as connecting via DLNA. (You don't have to worry about supported file types: the program converts them if necessary.)

The program now handles more formats, including MVC and DSD audio.

New batch processing support means you can extract the audio from multiple files.

And version 17 comes with a free year's subscription to 30GB of space (up from 20GB last time) on CyberLink Cloud, where you can store media, sync it across your devices or share it with others.

PowerDVD is also available in two more basic editions.

PowerDVD Pro drops DLNA and media casting, can't handle 3D movies/ pictures, doesn't have free Cloud space, loses the new TV Mode, has only a limited Media Player app, doesn't support 7.1 audio and misses out on a few other advanced features (no ISO playback).

PowerDVD Standard also drops Blu-ray support, has reduced audio format support and no social media options.

Verdict:

CyberLink PowerDVD 17 is an exceptionally powerful media player, and the new TV Mode and media casting tools make it an even better choice for your home's entertainment hub. If you need a player which does everything, this is probably it.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
