Corel WinDVD11 thread

post #1 of 69
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!

I just upgraded WinDVD10 to 11.
Give it a go with its trial:

http://www.corel.com/corel/product/i...anguageCode=en

I like it.

Folks are not familiar with Corel as much as Arcsoft or Cyberlink, but I'd suggest them to give it a go with WinDVD this time.

There is a fair amount of discussion at the end of the Windvd10 thread on the Windvd 11Pro.

I would like to open a new thread instead of contributing to the last two pages of the ex-thread, if you don't mind?

Do it!

I favor Corel because of its update mechanism. It is far ahead of other players.

I agreed but let's have a look at its other pros and cons as well.

At a first glance, it has a more user-friendly interface.

You can reach the graph behind the main application this time, and you can use ReClock as well.

This version is now supposed to support MKV. How well does that work?
post #10 of 69

It works with mkv as well.

If the mkv container includes vc1, WinDVD will use default filters.
In this case, you can bitstream HD audio if you are using a compatible audio decoder, like LAV or ffdshow.




If the mkv container includes AVC, WnDVD will use its own filters.
In this case, Intervideo Audio Decoder will downscale your HD audio.

Does WinDVD 11 support bitsreaming with Intel Sandy Bridge? Does it auto switch to 23.976 or 24 fps like TMT 5.2? I always liked WinDVD in the past.

I don't know if it supports bit streaming with Sandy since I don't have one yet.
There is no auto switch function afaik.

It does with Clarkdale. And AMD with Realtek Hdmi drivers.

Using WINDVD 11 Pro in HTPC with ATI 6500 video card. All other Blu Ray discs I try work fine, except disc 1 of Lord of the Rings, Fellowship of the Ring. It plays all the intro screens, but as soon as the first preview comes up (you know, with the green screen), it just stops with an error in the top left that says "media not supported." I installed the patch from Corel, but no change. The disc plays just fine in my PS3, so don't there is anything wrong with the disc. Any ideas?

Have you given it a go with PowerDVD or TMT?
If it works with other players, you should report to Corel that "Lord of The Rings doesn't work with WinDVD."
post #16 of 69
Yep, its a corel problem...TMT works just fine.

What about the HDMI driver included with any of the Catalyst drivers?

Works great. Corel has, hands down, the best HD audio bitstreaming implementation of any major software player. No updates were needed for new chipsets/drivers to get bitstreaming working.
post #19 of 69
Yes, all four (Intel, Nvidia, AMD, and Realtek) work really well. It's almost like MPC and or JRiver. DTS HD will sometimes bitstream at the lower end of hdmi or the upper limit of spdif. But it does it. Drawback here are folders and hddvd for me.

Nice app...



Installed on Intel Quadcore Q6600, Win 7 64, Nvidia GT545, Creative Labs X-Fi platform with AnyDVD-HD

Missing information. You just show the picture of the result, not the cause?
post #22 of 69
can it play BD rips to folder and not ISO?
post #23 of 69
Ricabullah , have you tried WinDVD 11 with Windows 8 Release preview? And please how does it work with the new generation of 28 nm GPU's in Win 7 or 8? I have both an AMD 7770 and a Nvidia GTX 670 . Powerdvd always seemed optomized for Nvidia and TMT with AMD.
post #24 of 69
Anyone know how to fix these issues with windvd 11? The software is the best I can find for bluray (previous PDVD 8,10,12, and TMT5). Bluray playback is the smoothest I have seen.

1. Keyboard is disabled on most blurays, making remote useless...
2. .ts containing h264 and LATM AAC audio plays video fine, but no audio...

Any thoughts?

Hi Ted,

I'm going to try this out. One thing that I'd love to see is the ability to use this with XMBC. In a nutshell -

1) Call sMedio WinDVD Pro as an external player with XBMC
2) Play ISO or Mkv media
3) An option to have sMedio WinDVD Pro close on stop and return to XMBC.

I haven't used WinDVD 11 Pro, so if this functionality already exists, thanks!

Hi robnix,


sMedio WinDVD supports the basic Command Line Options such as opening a file or DVD folder that you may program XBMC to do. Unfortunately it doesn't support options like "Close/Minimize on Stop". As for file formats, we do support MKV but not ISO though. For a full list of file formats, please check our Reviewer's Guide. It contains all the file and disc formats that we tested.

Hopefully this answers your questions.

Sincerely yours,
Ted S.

I noticed when I reboot my HTPC, WinDVD 11 resets to only 2 speakers. I have it set to MCPM output and have it set to 8 speakers. Reboot - boom, back to only 2 speakers. Any ideas?
post #29 of 69
Hi Cybrsage,

Thanks for trying out our WinDVD. Can you help me to understand your problem a bit more?

So, you have your HTPC connected to your receiver. Can you tell me if you are using HDMI or SPDIF to connect to your receiver?

You set WinDVD to multi-channel (6 or 8 channels) but the setting is reset after you reboot your system. Is it correct?

Which Blu-ray disc did you play?


Sincerely yours,
Ted S.

p.s. if there is any information you don't feel comfortable to share on the forum, you could also send me an email at support@smedioinc.com

HDMI from ATI 6670 to Onkyo 3310. HDMI out from 3310 to Panasonic 4000AE projector, but of coure the audio is done in the Onkyo. I am using Neo:X 9.2 with front heights.

I have WinDVD set to multi-channel out due to the audio delay caused if I pause and restart a movie when using the bitstream out option (or whatever the other choice is called). Multi-Channel out does not have the loss of a second or two of audio when the movie is unpaused (happens on live TV as well, anything that is bitstreamed).

I set the movie to 8 channel and I hear the surround goodness all around me. I stop the movie and reboot the PC then play a movie again and WinDVD is one again showing only 2 channels. I can hear the difference immediately which is how I knew there was a problem to start with. As soon as I change it to 8 channels I can hear the sound all around me again. It happens with every Blu-ray disc. One specifically noticeable is Captain America, when he is first meets the German scientist who allows him to join the army. When that scene ends, the move cuts to the secret lab where the experiments are taking place and they play a wonderful musical score. When that score plays, it is obvious if only 2 channels are selected.
