Ottawa based Corel Corporation announced today the eleventh version of its popular WinDVD media player.

Features of the updated software include a revamped user interface, improved performance with the latest GPUs and CPUs from AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA, new 2D to 3D conversion tools, SD to HD upscaling capabilities, and an integrated online movie search engine for searching popular video sources such as NetFlix and Hulu.

In response to customer requests, the new user interface features new right click accessible settings and playback controls that only appear when hovered over. The result says Corel is the removal of needless distractions and unwanted complexity.
