AVCHD File Support

Postby jk1000 on Wed Sep 17, 2008 7:15 pm

Please add the AVCHD file types to the list of valid file types when using the "Open from file" option in WinDVD9. The AVCHD file types are .mts (Canon) and .m2ts (Sony). WinDVD9 (version 9.0.B14.091) will play both of these types of AVCHD files, but you can only open them using the "Open from file" option if you change the file extension to one of the existing valid file types (like .wmv). Since WinDVD9 is supposed to support AVCHD files natively, we shouldn't have to change the file extension every time we want to play an AVCHD file in WinDVD9.

I have a few items to add...

First, you expressed surprise above that someone would want Vista Media Center (VMC) integration. I have to second the motion for such integration. I want to fire up a single application and have it work with all my media. At present I have to shut VMC down and fire up WinDVD9 to play Blu-Ray media and I would much rather simply insert a Blu-Ray disk and have it automatically invoke WinDVD9 using the same remote control interface as I use with VMC. Can you not see how the convenience factor plays in here? Arcsoft Total Media Theater does something like this; why doesn't WinDVD9? To me it is a very obvious feature.

Next up is proper support for hi-res formats. I want to have a choice between proper decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-MA into LPCM as well as the ability to send them out in a bitstream format. This of course assumes the use of a system such as the Intel G45 or other PAVP enabled hardware.

Solid 24P support would be desirable.

DVD-Audio Disk support is also highly desirable; now that we have PAVP enabled hardware there is no excuse for dropping this feature; it should be able to use the HDMI connection to forward the LPCM or MLP encoded data to my AVR.

Increased compatibility with titles is important; recently I had a region code error with Ratatouille which was left unresolved. A means of adapting to these problems in a decent amount of time is critical; I got the disk from BlockBuster and there is no good reason for it not to play. I play many other titles with no problem.

That is all I can think of for now...

Bugs

As Aphykit2006 said:
- the settings are not saved. It can get annoying if your settings are not the default settings and you have to adjust them every time you start WinDVD!
e.g.: SPDIF on my system required Waveout and doesn't work with DirectSound, but every time I start WinDVD, it's back to DirectSound

- instead of using windows' volume settings, it automatically sets each speaker to the same volume. A bug that has already been present back in WinDVD4. Please fix it, finally, and make WinDVD either use it's own profile (and remember it) or use the one of windows instead of changing it!

- when playing a blu-ray disc, the default subtitles are not remembered (they are always off and need to be switched on manually)

- maybe a bug: it can't play images of blu-ray disks created with AnyDVD-HD. I like to create images of movies I rent so that I don't have to watch 4 movies a week, but instead can take my time and delete them afterwards. While this works nicely with DVDs, WinDVD can't play blu-ray images, and hence I cannot rent blu-rays although I own a drive.

wish list

- please fix the bugs :)

- profiles: save video and audio settings for different uses (e.g. a profile for headphones and computer screen, another for 5.1 speakers and projector), yet another one for blu-ray).

- option to have only one (choosable) fast forward / rewinding speed, so that you don't have to click multiple times before you are finally rewinding at fast speed.

Thank you very much!

All2HD default settings

Postby Johnny B Richman on Tue Mar 03, 2009 4:26 pm

Please add the option to somehow save default All2HD settings!
I bought WinDVD mainly because I really like what All2HD does to DVD content however every time I start WinDVD I have to set the settings manually again and again :?
In particular I mean "Digital Natural Motion" option (by default set to "Off") and the "To HD Enhancement" slider (by default set to the middle).
It would make my life much easier...
Thank you

Maybe Corel guys look sometimes at this topic ????

Hallo,



Most of my friends, and I think lot of users here bought his first WinDVD 6.0 because of its wonderful Philips brand technology
called Digital Natural Motion ot TrimensionDNM. It was almost 5-6 years ago.
Lot of time...isn't it.
It is the time to implement this blessing into HDTV.

I bought and stuck with Windvd 8 because version 9 has too many bugs and lacks I describe already.
http://forum.corel.com/EN/viewtopic.php?t=29954


One thing can make me to buy a ¡§Corel¡¨ or ¡§Ulead¡¨ but truly ¡§Intervideo¡¨ Windvd 10 :



Digital Natural Motion for all video content (up to 1080p) but especially:

1. Mpeg 1/2 - ISO, (DVB recorded *.TS files too) !!!!! not only DVD¡¦s !!!!!!

2. AVCHD

3. H.264/Mpeg4 AVC, (DVB recorded *.TS files too)

4. VC-1

5. (Divx, xvid, Matroska etc are less important)




Upscaling is NOT so important as smoothness !!!.

Digital Natural Motion is one thing where Windvd can beat it¡¦s rivals as PowerDVD or Nero Showtime - !!! smoothness !!!


Do something good at last PLEASE !!!

Win 7 MCE plugin

Allow setup to chose whether skip chapter forward and back is for chapter or skip 5 seconds back and 30 forward. Match the MCE config settings in this area.

more updates for recent titles. I don't understand how a regular bluray player can work without the updates as compared to running bluray software on a computer that seems to need updates all the time.

I wish you would bring back all the tools and menus from WinDVD 8 it was just so much more user friendly. I mean don't get me wrong in 2010 and 9 it is possible to find things but overall the interface of 8 was simply better.

Please enable the screenshot/snapshot for Blu-Ray!

Version 10 does not allow screenshot/snapshots.

You probably need AnyDvdHD to enable screenshots.

Wish list would be folder playback for me. This is my first post but a user of WinDvd2010 for some time and it works very well, your legal dept should look into expanding it playback as Pdvd and TMT do allow expanded playback.

- Saving window position
- Aero Snap support
- Make it possible to have the onscreen controls auto-hide even if the DiscMenu is enabled (this so that you only need to click once to access popup menu, instead of clicking two times).

Real stretch from 4:3 to 16:9 and 16:10. The current stretch of 4:3 in WinDVD 10 is horrible and makes the middle of the screen weird. It's like the middle is thinner than the sides, making the experience bad. Is this fixed in version 11?

*BUMP*
I have a few suggestion as to how you can address the problems and make the twelfth version the best version yet:
*Use one live-action film, one anime film and one CGI film when you are working with the upscaling engine
- Live-action: New Police Story with Jackie Chan - it has fast action, dark sequences and bright sequences
- Anime: Naruto season 1, episode 1 - it's one of the most popular animes and it's really colourful
- CGI fim: The Incredibles - colourful, fast and with smooth textures, making it ideal for testing the upscaling engine
*Add the previous options for video, found in WinDVD 10
- The options found in WinDVD 10 are really superior and opens for a more customized experience. Less is sometimes more, but not in this case
*Make the smart stretch feature usable
- As it is now, it morphs the picture. The middle gets thin, while the rest of the picture is stretched. It doesn't matter how you adjust it, the point where the slider is stationed will get thin, while the rest will be stretched. As a result, the picture looks weird and the subtitles are often hard to read
*Fix the 4:3 to 16:9 conversion
- 4:3 to 16:9 conversion should be easy to do. PowerDVD 12 does this without making the picture look too stretched. Please fix this feature! Almost every anime is released in 4:3, so it's really needed
____________________________________________________________________________

If you manage to do this right, you can advertise that you have the best upscaling and that it's optimized for live-action, animation and anime.
The anime part is a huge selling point, so get it right!

Hello,
there should be a complete uninstall function, it must also be called if you will install WinDVD again. If you have tried the trial version, there can be big problems to install a paid real version. If you install the boxed version or the download version to activate it later, installation must be possible under all circumstances and for all windows versions it is advertized (XP, Vista and Windows 7, also 64bit). Deleting directories and files and editing registry by hand is not a solution, there are too many possible errors you can make. After that there seems to be no way to install WinDVD once more until you make a complete new windows installation...

Blocking the trial version after expiring the 30 days must not block installation of boxed version or activation of paid donload version!

After that we can discuss about better functions of WinDVD itself ;-)

Best regards
Andy_W
