“As the first and only media player to integrate PC, mobile device and cloud platforms into a seamless entertainment ecosystem, PowerDVD is designed to enhance how people experience their media,” said Alice H.

Building on its industry leadership, PowerDVD 14 is the first multimedia software to support the brand new High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC/H.265) format.

  • Across Devices – New Power Media Player brings CyberLink’s award-winning multimedia technology to iPhones, iPad, Android and Windows 8 devices so users can stream and copy content seamlessly across connected devices on home networks.
  • Better YouTube – PowerDVD now features “pinning” functionality so users can save YouTube videos to watch offline. Pinned videos can be upscaled to HD or 3D, enhanced with lighting and noise reduction adjustments, and enjoyed using PowerDVD’s fast forward and slow-motion features. Use PowerDVD as your digital video recorder (DVR) for YouTube.
