PowerDVD 14.0.3917.58 has one interesting feature:

it detects Cinavia only on Blu-ray discs or BD ISO images mounted to virtual discs.

PowerDVD 14 doesn’t detect Cinavia on BDMV/BDAV folders located on HDD/USB flash drives.

"audio exclusive mode (WASAPI) for improved audio during movie playback."
I thought this was required for copyright reasons.

Audio exclusive mode (audio encryption) has worked with 48kHz (or higher) 24bit LPCM audio (this is an AACS requirement), but not with 48KHz 16bit LPCM (always sent to Windows mixer). Maybe this is improved? Or you can choose WASAPI shared / exclusive mode for any audio stream (e.g. in MKV)?

Are there any PDVD 14 users who upgraded from 13 that can comment what benefits (or lack of) you are seeing? I'm trying to find incentive to update to 14 but just don't see many.

I have upgraded from Power DVD 13 to 14. I believe the Power DVD 14 loads faster and the Blu-Ray movies seem to be crispier and have more contrast than Power DVD 13. The only problem is the Cinevia detection kicked in in Power DVD 14. But I hope AnyDVD will fix it soon.

I am using the Benq w1080st (the short throw cousin of the Benq w1070) projector with my macbook retina pro running windows 8.1. The laptop has passed the hardware requirement test from Cyberlink. I'm using PowerDVD ultra 14. The projector works at 144 Hz, and I am using active shutter glasses that work at 144Hz as well. I've been able to view native 3d blu-rays with no issues whatsoever and the image is fantastic. However the 3D conversion feature on PowerDVD 14 is one that I'd really like to use for 2d blu rays and rips thereof, but it doesn't seem to work. When I press the 3d button, I go get the slightly displaced overlay of two images, that is supposed to create a 3d image, but when I view using my glasses the images are still flat. There is no 3d effect whatsoever. What could I be doing wrong? Any input much appreciated. Thanks!

Sorry to ask this in PowerDVD thread:

If I want to buy Media Player Software for displaying best result for 4k content (with Sony 4K Projector), including 1080p of course.

What is the BEST options I have?
