PowerDVD 8 now available for PC

I've noticed several members using this software so I thought I would post that CyberLink today launched PowerDVD 8.

Key features in PowerDVD 8 include:
  • Support for HD audio and video standards and formats, including AVCHD and Blu-ray Discs.
  • Pure Home Theater Audio – lets users enjoy unmatched clarity and purity through their high-definition, 7.1-channel home-entertainment system, or on the go using a notebook.
  • Movie Collection – lets users collect information about movies and sync with their online MoovieLive account.
  • Movie Remix – lets users create their own stories using their favorite DVD movies, rearranging scenes, adding dialog and commentary, subtitles, and on-screen effects.

Movie Collection

PowerDVD 8 allows users to build a database of their movie collection, and then sync and share information with other PowerDVD users.

Users can create stories from their favorite movies by selecting scenes and the order in which they want them played, and adding personal touches such as animated graphics, new voice-overs, alternate dialogs or commentary or personalized subtitles with adjustable font color, size, and shading.
