CyberLink has released PowerDVD 16, the latest edition of its do-everything media player.
New media casting support for ChromeCast, Roku and Apple TV enables streaming audio, video and pictures around your home, with PowerDVD automatically converting files to a format each device can understand.
“TV Mode” is a full-screen interface optimised for large displays, a more capable version of the old Cinema Mode.
The program now handles more formats, including MVC and DSD audio.
New batch processing support means you can extract the audio from multiple videos in a single operation.
CyberLink claims the program now makes better use of system resources, improving startup speeds, reducing the impact of background processes, and maybe extending battery life, too.
The PowerDVD Remote app for iOS and Android has been improved.
CyberLink’s Cloud Storage is more generous, too, offering 30GB of storage space for a year (that’s up from 20GB last time).
PowerDVD 16 is available in four editions.
The subscription-based PowerDVD Live offers everything we’ve listed here, as does PowerDVD 16 Ultra.
PowerDVD 16 Pro drops support for 3D, media casting, DLNA, TV Mode, audio batch processing and cloud storage, as well as cutting some audio and social media features.
PowerDVD 16 Standard drops all support for Blu-ray and social media, and further cuts back on audio support (no Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, DSD Audio).
PowerDVD 16 is available now for Windows 7 and later.
