Video quality depends on many factors, such as how the video was captured, how it was manipulated and what kind of hardware is in your computer. Deinterlacing, in it's simplest definition, is how video is assembled and displayed on your screen. WinDVD has superior video quality and provides you with different deinterlacing options to make your videos look as great as possible.
WinDVD 6's improved color controls are like those on a standard television set. No more confusing settings. Everything is straightforward and easy to use.
Isn't it annoying to watch 4:3 films on a widescreen (16:9) display (or vice versa) with the movie image stretched and distorted? Smart Stretch lets you customise your viewing image by intelligently compensating for the differences in displays. This non-linear technology minimizes the distortion by only stretching the edges of the video and maintaining the original content in the center portion of the image. Now you can watch your videos with the correct aspect ration regardless of the movie or your display device.
Instant Replay/Skip Ahead
Did you miss something because the dog was barking? Was that effect just amazing? Just couldn't believe your ears? Sometimes you want to see something over again. Instant replay lets you view it again. Instantly replay something of interest, or jump ahead to a new segment in the title. With a simple keyboard command, you can replay a sequence easily. Similarly, you can jump ahead in the current play.
Pan and Zoom

Superior Audio Experience Enhanced!
WinDVD 6 includes a first-class suite of audio technologies to ensure a rich, surround sound audio experience. The Audio Booster Pack is now included with advanced features including Dolby Digital, Dolby Headphone, Dolby Virtual Speaker, DTS Digital Surround Sound and SRS TruSurroundXT for a full, immersive listening experience.
Dolby Digital EX
Want to get the most out of your action-packed DVDs? WinDVD allows you to enjoy the highest quality audio by expanding 5.1 channel sources to up-to 8 Channel speaker systems. If you haven't watched a movie with WinDVD's Dolby Surround EX, you don't know what you're missing. Dolby Surround EX produces exciting, spine-tingling surround-sound that lets you feel the audio in your movies.
Dolby Pro Logic II
WinDVD's Dolby Pro Logic takes 2-channel (stereo) audio from movies and music and transforms it into 5.1 channel surround sound that you can pipe through your home theater set up. Pro Logic II extracts all of the ambient and directional sound included in the original recording, ensuring an exceptional listening experience. Pro Logic II even offers Movie and Music modes to optimize your listening experience.
Dolby Virtual SpeakersHome theater surround systems normally use five speakers: three across the front and two surround speakers on the sides. Dolby Virtual Speaker technology uses an advanced psychoacoustics algorithm to create an amazing 5.1 surround sound environment using two speakers, so WinDVD users with as few as two speakers can enjoy full home-theater surround sound.
Audio channels are processed through advanced "filters" that simulate the sonic signature of a speaker located within an acoustic space. By re-creating these waveforms, as they would be heard from real speakers, it is possible to experience a very realistic sensation of five spatially discrete sound sources over two speakers.
Using a sophisticated model of the way human hearing determines direction, Dolby Headphone combines the 5.1 surround signals to create an amazingly vivid surround sound environment on your headphones. It's ideal for private listening, and whether at home or on the road, WinDVD delivers true surround sound on your headphones.
SRS audio technologiesThe SRS audio technologies in WinDVD 6 enhance the dialog quality of a movie or the rich bass tones of your music.
96 kHz/24 Bit Audio Decoding
WinDVD takes your listening experience to next level. It supports 96 kHz/24 bit audio decoding, which is like high definition TV for sound. 96/24 audio is studio-quality audio, the type of sound that professional musicians cut on master tapes. Treat your ears to 96/24 audio quality and make your movies seem almost real.
DSP Audio Effects
Use the Audio Effect subpanel to adjust the sound to fit your listening conditions and personal taste.
Environment lets you optimise the audio for your listening environment when listening to Dolby Digital sources. These options are effective only when listening to Dolby Digital sources.
Use the DSP Effects to enhance music and movies by adjusting the tonal balance, adding spaciousness, or other effects.
Why change players when you change discs? Play audio and video CDs with WinDVD 6. WinDVD 6 detects the type of disc inserted into the drive and chooses the correct type of play. Full audio support is included with your WinDVD 6.
Universal Player Enhanced!
To increase the compatibility with other video file formats, WinDVD 6 now supports the playback of Real Player files, Quick Time files, and even WMV-HD. This strong compatibility with other players makes WinDVD 6 a universal player, which means WinDVD 6 is able to playback a broad range of various video file formats. WinDVD 6 also contains InterVideo's own MPEG-4 decoder technology to allow the whole range of MPEG-4 files to be played, including Divx files.
Quick Clip (The GIF file feature) New!

Ready to make your MMS message surprise your friends? WinDVD 6 lets you capture that piece of video and save it in GIF format. You can then email to your friends or even transfer it to your mobile phone.
Designed specifically to work with the latest in mobile technology, Intel Centrino mobile technology, WinDVD 6 can significantly extend your battery life so you can enjoy movies longer when watching on your laptop.
Smooth Reverse Playback

Time StretchingWant to watch your 2hr movie but you only have 1.5 hr? No problem! With Time Stretching you play your movie in the time you have and corrects the audio so you aren't listening to chipmunks!
WinDVD has been created to make optimum usage of new Hyper-Threading technology. Hyper-Threading is a technology that allows a single microprocessor to act like two separate processors to the operating system and the application programs that use it -- thus a microprocessor's "core" processor can execute two (rather than one) concurrent streams (or threads) of instructions sent by the operating system. Having two streams of execution units to work on allows more work to be done by the processor during each clock cycle.
What this mean for you is that if you have an Intel processor with Hyper-Threading technology -- such as a P4 -- you can watch a DVD and use other computer functions (such as open a file or check your email) without any loss of quality or speed.
Create your own playlists with audio tracks or video files, from DVDs, VCDs, SVCDs and CDs. Bookmark favourite spots of your DVDs and save them as a file (.bmk) for later or export to a friend and show them that amazing special effect! Grab a screen capture of a cool image, even an image you've enhanced with one of WinDVD 6's great video effects, and save it as your wallpaper, a JPEG or Bitmap file, or email it to a friend.
You can look up information about the stars, the director, and other movies they've been in.

Pal TruSpeed Playback
When movies are transferred from film to DVD in the PAL format, popular in Europe, they play 4% too fast, which can cause playback and audio problems. InterVideo's proprietary TruSpeed Playback automatically corrects the 4% speed error and uses its time-stretching technology to maintain natural audio quality.
The main viewing window is highly customisable. Use the Setup pages as well as the subpanels to control the look and feel of the viewing window. You can keep the WinDVD 6 viewing window on top of any other windows, use it as your desktop wallpaper, or size it to any dimensions you want.
