    They are both very similar always have been.

    The latest version of PowerDVD is 5
    The latest version of WinDVD is 6

    Each version where the numbers match are pretty damn similar.
    Really down to personal preference, tho I would be more likely to use PowerDVD, but I am using WinDVD at the moment.

    Having said that I just use the filters with Zoom Player anyway ;)

    Isn't that "Ineractual Player" the thingy that trys to install itself off some DVD's or is that something else? I hate that thing :p Oh and my vote is for PowerDVD .. but I use VideoLan lately as I have lost my PowerDVD cd :(

    WinDVD was bundled with my notebook. It works as it's supposed to, but I prefer VLC for all my video-viewing needs.

    I like using (drum roll) Media Player Classic V6.4.8.2, just wondering did the puter have a dvd drive when you got it as it maybe o.e.m. and can only be used with that dvd drive. :rolleyes:
