After reading all the negative comments (and some positive) and with several good alternatives already mentioned (some of which I have, or had, on my hard disk already) -- I will be UNinstalling this, without bothering to use it. Too many other things to do right now to mess around with this, and too many other, useuful programmes (often from GAOTD) on my hard disk, too!

I don't like that every time I open it up, a popup ad wants me to upgrade. I came for a giveaway. If they want me to have the upgraded version, they should have given it away on giveaway of the day.

Plus, only half of my region 3 dvds played on this "region-free" player. I was hoping for a good software. Well, maybe the upgraded version plays ALL region DVDs. But I guess I won't find out.
I'll keep it for a little while and see if my other region 3 dvds play on it or not. I will still be hopeful.

See publisher home page for difference between standard and pro. This is a come on and a fraud, to get you to buy the pro.
There will soon be an upgrade with no time limit. No reason publisher should have produced this limited standard version Turns me off. Sorry I didn't write this earlier.

Maybe I am nissing the point here but why do you need a DVD player to record? If you want to copy your dvd 's then shouldn't you just use a dvd copier or ripper program?? Seems to work fine for playing dvd's and unless I am missing something that is whatthis is made to do. So it is not a "worthless program" as some have said. It does what it says it will do. As for VLC yes that is free and it will play dvd's however I have noticed (and I just tried this as a comparision between this program and VLC) and when you select full screen and while still in full screen you hit the stop button, it locks up with "program not responding" which is a bummer didn't see that happening with this one. (And that is with the latest VLC update) XP SP3 so..... For a player this seems to work fine though I do agree that the advert is a bit annoying everytime you run it. So despite the nay-sayers thank you GOTD

I had no installation issues with Windows 7 64-bit, and it didn't ask for a reboot either. It launched okay, and didn't switch to non-Aero mode either.

But a small point that won't affect too many users is I have multiple monitors (four of them) with the primary on the left. I found that, while I could shift the non-maximized window to the central monitor, when I double-clicked the title bar to maximize the viewing window it always shifted the maximized window back to the inconveniently-placed primary monitor on the left side om my desk (rather than leaving the window directly in front of me).

Can we get the software author to comment on the questions raised in #11 and #15 ?

If this GoTD replaces Windows operating system files (instead of just calling substitute files of it's own) then what will those non-Windows files do when some other program calls them expecting them to work like on a computer without DVD-X installed?

I think Aviosoft should review the comments here and make a new version to allay the objections and re-submit it another day. After all, that is what GoTD is here for - to help them make a better product.
On the other hand if it is fine as-is, then they should post their own comment explaining why there is no problem.

#23: "can not play subtitles (srt)."

DVD & Blu-Ray discs use graphics-based subs -- they're actually pictures of the words/letters overlaid on the video. DVD X Player handles them. Before being turned into those graphics subs the words are created/saved as plain text with one of several types of formatting to preserve line feeds & times -- .srt is one of the more common. Some players handle .srt files as is, rendering the text on screen as an overlay -- most DVD players do not.

* * *

#24: "i have been looking for a region free dvd player for a long time that actually works having tried a few any body know of any"

Google/Bing, maybe check out Media Code Speed Edit, maybe check out the SlySoft apps or DVDFab's etc...

* * *

#30: "“The standard version offers to convert recorded DVD into HD-Video” – clearly a lie. DVD is encoded in MPEG2 that uses much lower resolution than an HD-video uses (720p is 1280x… and 1080p is 1920x….). you cannot get a true higher resolution from lower resolution."

FWIW I agree that you can't get more resolution out of software -- you can't just create the needed pixels out of thin air -- but today's GOTD isn't the only app to offer up-rezzing video.... I don't know why people buy into the idea but apparently some do. In my experience you're just as well off [if not better off] letting your player or HDTV full-screen the video on-the-fly.

DVD X Player works, but it won't work with my DVD drive [LG GH22NP20 with edited firmware] which has no region info, settings or protections. What bothers me is after installing & trying DVD X Player with Wondershare Timefreeze on, then restoring everything, when I checked to make sure everything was working properly, PowerDVD popped up it's region selection dialog... since there were no changes to the hard drive & Windows, logically the only thing that could have changed was the drive itself. This only happened once, & it worked fine with my BD drive [LG WH10Ls30], but it was enough to make me nervous -- I re-tested a few times, & made sure I had everything required to update the firmware in my BD drive just in case.

DVD X Player itself isn't bad, & the way I'd rate it *purely as a player* is: if you don't want to spend ~$10 [or less] on PowerDVD, it's better than some bundled players [i.e. Nero], or VLC *If* you want DVD menus. I think I like it more than WinDVD, but frankly it's been ages since I've tried WinDVD. It is not quite as good as Roxio's Cineplayer however, based purely on performance. DVD X Player does offer graphics hardware acceleration, but did not use it as much as PowerDVD which in turn uses less GPU than Cineplayer -- DVD X Player also raised the core clock for my graphics card, where the other 2 didn't, meaning potentially a bit more heat in something like a home theater PC where that can be important [often you have a smaller case & reduced number of fans to keep things neat & quiet]. DVD X Player also loses points for not supporting Closed Captioning. The interface is a matter of taste IMHO -- I like the controls & their layout better in PowerDVD, but that's me. That said, DVD X Player does have a nag-screen type pop-up when you start it that's no more annoying than PowerDVD's OEM versions, & a bit easier to get rid of [there's much less to delete in the program's folder]. It does not however match PowerDVD when it comes to display or audio options, if that matters to you.

Installation is OK, perhaps with a bit less impact on Windows than PowerDVD because DVD X Player doesn't add a bunch of Direct Show filters [files] the way PowerDVD does -- on the flip side, those PowerDVD files can come in very handy as a hardware accelerated option in many other video-related apps. Note that if you install/run DVD X Player as admin in 7 you avoid using win7's Virtual Stores. Note also it phones home a bit, but then so do PowerDVD & Cineplayer. Installation adds the programs folder [~49 MB with 174 files, 10 folders], a folder under Program Data in 7, or All Users Application Data in XP, plus an output folder in (my) Documents. Setup.exe includes 6 files for Windows system folder, but it did not replace any existing files -- it did however add new registry entries for pre-existing files, for a total of ~1k new entries in XP & 7... note XP wanted a restart to load those registry settings & the 4 added system files, while 7 did not.

As I started out up above, DVD X Player works. If I was going to pay $50 I'd hope the nag pop-up was removed, but I'd also consider 1st whether I didn't want a bit more future-proofing by selecting a player that also handled BD & maybe 3D, even if it did cost a bit more. I paid for Cineplayer BD/3D because it will play a Blu-Ray on your HDD, plus the screen flash drives me nuts when PowerDVD drops out of Aero to play Blu-Ray, but we're talking DVD players, not BD, & for that I've always bought PowerDVD OEM versions... Google on "PowerDVD OEM" [here's the result from Google Shopping: http://goo.gl/8QVUB ]. You can also Google/Bing on DVD regions for alternatives to needing a region free software player, *IF* you ever need to play DVDs from another region -- many, many don't. As far as recording goes, *if* your hardware supports it, you can record playing audio with near any audio recording app [I've even used Windows Sound Recorder], but please remember that like recording playback to the screen, it takes longer & you lose quality.

What a shame. The " limits " on this make it quite worthless. I tried recording audio only and it would stop after just 5 min ( not 15 ) I couldn't find anything in the settings that would be making it do that. Whoever said this is just a player - is correct ! So many better programs out there that really do what this one claims it does ! How in the world does it get 68% thumbs up????

I have a skipping problem whenever I tried playing several DVDs, using fairly new Win 7 64 bit, duo core 2.00 Ghz, 4 GB RAM notebook computer. It worked on a non-admin account briefly then after a while it wouldn't run at all unless I ran it as ADMIN. Re-installing it didn't fix the problem. Looked promising but I had to uninstall it.

I wonder, if folk just press thumbs up/down before, they have read the comments or tried out the software offered ? Well,this program isn't any better than, the software, you can find for free. Concidered the price - go get Cyberlink PowerDVD, if you can afford it. This one doesn't work with my LaCie ekstern drive. You could as well use Media Player Clasic Home Cinema x64. It seems useless to install this app, when it doesn't work, when it comes to play a disk direktly from the drive. Thank you GOATD but I'll pass today's offer

Hmm....

I installed it on the Eee Nettops, and it works fine from the programs menu,

but when you try to directly click on a DVD drive (choosing "use DVDX Player"), it does not play,
saying the player 'is not a valid Win 32 application'.

It still plays by going to the program directory,
but being too clunky to direct click on the DVD is a dealbreaker for me.

Since I use multiple virtual players (and clicking from programs menu chooses the first player by default, instead of allowing choice).

Anyone else getting the "not valid" message?

Installed on Win7X64. Not compatible with Aero, which can be annoying. Flashes coupon with offer to 'upgrade' from standard, also annoying. Tested it on one movie file (an AVI I believe) and did not get sound. Since I did not test it thoroughly I will not give a thumbs up or down, but these issues were enough for me to delete it.

I tried this on my little 'test machine' (9" screen Eee901 PC running XP sp3),
works great so far.

This computer didn't come with a DVD drive, or DVD software.

I had tried some of the free players, but never found one I liked.
Maybe it's just the basic black interface of this one, but so far I'm digging it. :D

This player does work fine with the compact Asus external DVD drive I'm using.

Next I'll try it on the Eee net-tops (also running XP, and without any DVD software), should be fine, since they're pretty close to the same hardware as the Eee 901.

All those suggesting other (free) DVD software instead,
which one/ones are you using?
The ones I tried all seemed pretty cheesy.

I have one other machine that needs DVD software,
looking for a backup in case this doesn't work on that one (Windows 7 64b)

Hey boys and girls, with this incredibly useless piece of software we can skip the FBI warning!! Are you serious? This is supposed to be a selling point for your software? Give me a break.

For $50 USD I expect alot more than this product delivers. VLC and K-Lite let me do anything I want with any DVD I've ever come across, and they are both 100% free 100% of the time. As for conversions, again there are too many free, and better, alternatives out there that don't limit me to such ridiculous lengths.

Apparently the April Fool's Spirit is still stalking us. Wake up developers, this is 2011 and you need to really impress us if you want us to spend hard earned money on a product that has so many FREE alternatives.

Drive limitations: Those who have done serious research know that most all DVD drives allow you to change the region code up to 5 times. A number of brands have a "manufacturer's reset command" that will reset this counter - in combination with resetting the OS' counter, this is the usual method these types of players use to make everything "region free". Very few drives are actually region free.

Generally, you have no choice what came with your laptop, even first rate brands often produce the same laptop model with many different drives during the entire production run. Toshiba, Matshita and older Sony drives tend to be very standard conscious (and do not have a counter reset) - they were original DVD agreement signatories. Newer Sony drives are OEMed from Lite-On and others. There are Toshiba laptops that do not have Toshiba drives. Sony has been a heavy user of Toshiba & Matshita/Matsushita/Panasonic drives. Even some Panasonic laptops don't have Matshita drives. Use Device Manager to check your laptop.

Running this program in a Virtual Machine will fail, as low-level hardware access (i.e. counter reset) cannot be virtualized.

anyDVD and other region-free utilities will mask the region code for most drive and player software combinations. There are lots of players out there, so use your favourite. These region-free utlities offer probably the most flexible solution.

I generally prefer not to use original DVDs in my laptop when traveling (don't want to scratch originals), so I usually carry personal copies of favourites from my large collection of purchased DVDs. By adjusting certain parameters in the DVD's IFOs, I have succeeded in getting PAL DVDs to play in a surprising number of NTSC-only players (this is an expert-level hack that can potentially damage TVs).

Simpleset bet? Use a DVD ripper / copier to create a region-free burned version for your own personal use. There have been numerous giveaways in the past. (I'm surprised that no one has mentioned good 'ol DVDDecrypter yet.) Blank media is cheap, and then you have a copy in your library that you can use anytime with any one of your players. (All my foreign region DVDs have a burned copy tucked into the cases.)

This is a simple review for people whose DVD needs are simple like mine.

My interest in this program was the region-free feature since I have a small but growing collection of DVDs from regions other than my own. I tried playing them with DVD X Player using the default settings. Success. The quality of video and audio was fine, and on my system was noticeably better than provided by the default settings of freeware alternative VLC Media Player.

Installation on XP SP3 was quick and easy. Other than the easily banished 50% off offer advert which is displayed after launch, and which I sincerely hope will be time-limited, this program fails to offend me in any way, so it's a thumbs up. Also (somewhat facetiously) this giveaway enables me to avoid looking at the VLC orange traffic cone icon, which I dislike immensely.

Thanks very much to Aviosoft and GOTD for the giveaway.

This is interesting but one issue sticks in mind. My DVD will play other regions 5 times only, as it stands at the moment, plus, whatever happens to be the region used on #5 becomes the standard, and that cannot be changed without sending the computer to manufacturers for resetting.

It is difficult to find out without entering windows functions to see how many times the DVD regional setting has been changed.

Can this software genuinely be trusted to 'override' such constraints?

I'm wary.

Very difficult interface. requires micro-movent to locate the various buttons. Not a very logical layout but improves if you rigjht-click on screen.

Started to record and before locking up completely I had to agree to the following conditions:-

To protect DVD Copyright, DVD X Player only allows you to record DVD as short video/audio clips within a time limitation for your personal usage. The resale, reproduction, distribution, or commercial exploitation of the recorded video/audio clips is strictly forbidden.

To use DVD X Player record function, you must agree to respect the rights of the copyright holders.


Er. No, NOT alright actually.

"The standard version offers to convert recorded DVD into HD-Video" - clearly a lie. DVD is encoded in MPEG2 that uses much lower resolution than an HD-video uses (720p is 1280x... and 1080p is 1920x....). you cannot get a true higher resolution from lower resolution.

several awesome free players are available in the market that support whole bunch of formats. to name a few, VLC, KMP, MPC, splayer, gom player...why should i bother about this?

again, for making portable files, too many free options, handbrake, ripbot, virtualdub, avidemux,...

"Why doesn’t this software run with the above DVD-ROM drives. ( Toshiba satellite ) rules me out."

Hi Paul - simply because that is not the Software you need
That is the Software that nobody needs actually, when there so many free & perfectly working solutions

Other posts above 1-4 are either from the "special" people, who are most likely working for the company... or have to learn a bit before posting comments

What kind of DVD or any other media cannot be played or converted by VLC ? (no codecs needed to be installed)
What kind of media cannot be played by Media Player Classic? ... basically again, no codecs needed by default, but, free K-Lite Pack(s) can be downloaded for more advanced users

Then ... Miro, CoolPlayer, SMPlayer, Songbird, XMplayer, KMPlayer, ...etc. and so on & so forth

Conclusion: absolutely useless Software was offered this time (again)

Just ridiculous offer

Cheers!

Installed and registered fine but after a reboot the program will not open and windows closes it down due to it "not responding".
Using Windows Vista x64, could this be the problem?

@2 I had a scout of the site because I have a Sony Vaio and found this part in the support section:

7) Try a different unit.
..... The best manufacturers depending on our experience are Plextor, Lite-on (writers), LG (recent units), and Sony (DVD writers). The most problematic drives are Toshiba, old LG, Pioneer, TDK, and MSI. Of course it doesn't mean it will not work if you are using an unlisted manufacturer or model. It just means we don't know all the models and it depends on your own use of our products.

I'm going to try it out on mine anyways to see the end result

I installed this, and immediately Windows File Protection complained that files required to run Windows properly have been replaced with unrecognised versions. What's going on?

I have Windows XP Home service pack 3.

I'd like to know what they mean when they say recording of DVD is 15 mins for the standard version and 45 mins for the pro version. I have numerous players for DVDS including free ones like VLC. Not much of an additional attraction for me unless it will record a whole 2 hours plus movie plus perhaps the menu items.

I have a DVD player in my new Panasonic Toughbook, it will look into one region after I play 5 DVDs of that region, with this program can I play any region DVDs and not have it lock ? I am in the USA and would like to also watch DVDs from Britian too. Thanks for the info
