And it has the EXACT same problems that powerDVD 11 had- crashing and bugging when playing blu rays from a BD ROM. VERY unstable. I read on a forum somewhere that power dvd doesn't work so well with nvidia graphic cards which is what I, as well as many others, use.
If your looking for a decent software that plays blu rays that is 100% stable and WON'T crash and have problems but doesn't have a nice and fancy interface (but what would you prefer?), do yourself a favour and try out the trial first. If it messes up like it did with mine, try Corel WinDVD 11 Pro (PC)
, but try the trial version first just in case. I've been using it for months now to play blu rays and never had any such problems as power DVD. 100% stable and reliable. Which is a shame, because the interface and some features of powerDVD 12 are very good, but not many other software companies seem to be making blu ray software. How come the likes of companies such as Sony haven't even caught on yet?
But to me, Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 Ultra (PC)
has the EXACT problems it's preprocessor had. I hoped they would work on this issue, but it seems they haven't.
Shame on you, CYBERLINK.
Let's hope in the future, there'll be a FREE download of software to play Blu Rays. I'm hoping that VLC media player, STILL the best media player out there (yet it's free), may do a future version that plays them.
