Don't buy it

After purchasing this app in order to play DVD's on my new windows 10 computer, I found out this would not play DVD's on it, as it says that the desktop version is not installed. Cyberlink requires you to jump through hoops and sign up with their website in order to receive customer service for their deceptively sold products, and as far as I can tell, there is no way to download a desktop version of this app. If you want a DVD player for your new Windows 10 computer now that Windows Media Player doesn't support DVD playback, do NOT buy this.

Purchased the app and tried to play a dvd only to be asked for an activation code that was never provided. It wouldn't play the DVD and offered to sell an additional program. Waste of money!

Good video player

It is an excellent player for all videos and viewing photos. Wish they also had some more features like slow and fast playing. I wish there was more options like the earlier versio.

Plays vob files I copied off my exercise DVD to my tablet. File finding is a bit basic to navigate, doesn't show file extensions.

Will NOT play DVDs

Trying to play a DVD on a Windows 8.1 computer with a USB DVD drive does not work (Windows Problem). They say to install an app to play the DVD. A windows store search yields Cyberlink Power Media Player. Problem NOT solved. Power Media Player DOES NOT PLAY DVDs! Over all a miserable way to spend and hour and waste $15 with the wife and kids waiting for the show. Thanks for nothing Cyberlink and Microsoft. P.S. If there is a way to play a DVD with this app, please enlighten me.

Plays files, but won't browse for them

I can open a file from Windows Explorer, but there's no way to browse outside of the media library from the app.

Don't buy

Not an easy player to use. Won't let me watch a movie because the parental controls won't allow it but can find where to change the settings. Most difficult to use. My recommendation don't buy .
