Roxio’s latest DVD player software program is the new CinePlayer with 3d. Not only is it an excellent DVD player software program but it also includes an all-in-one decoder. With its smooth playback and clear audio, it’s one of the best performing and highest quality DVD and media file playback that there is out there. The headline feature of the newest version is the ability to play 3D DVDs, and even convert 2D movies to 3D.
If you want the excellence of Roxio in a Blu-ray player, check out their CinePlayer BD.
CinePlayer comes with most of the basic features like Auto-Resume and Subtitle Display but does lack a few common ones like Parental Controls a. A few more advanced features are included such as Smart Stretch but there again it is missing a few others. The DVD player software now supports playback of several 3D movies, including RealD technology. The player is compatible with NVIDIA 3D Vision monitors. But more than just playing 3D movies, CinePlayer with 3D can also convert 2D movies into 3D, bringing an exciting new dimension to your favorite movies.
CinePlayer uses a simple navigation system. Its screens are uncomplicated and the program is self-explanatory. Throw in the movie and load the source. CinePlayer is laid out to make all option navigating easy, including resolution ratio, audio language selection and subtitle selection.
Older versions of CinePlayer were limited in their ability to adjust the video display but it has definitely improved. It has also joined the ranks of the top DVD player software and added in their own HD up-scaled playback, allowing you to view a sharper video picture. The CinePlayer used to offer basic customization options, such as the ability to adjust brightness, contrast and color saturation but apparently decided to leave that out this time around, and honestly, it probably is a thing of the past since auto adjusting makes user’s life much easier.
Although CinePlayer with 3d lacks a few of the bells and whistles offered by other players, the program does include the standard capabilities essential to a good DVD player program. And the CPU-friendly player works well for those with older or slower computer systems. Also, despite a few little things that can be improved on, it’s still one of the best DVD player software available.
