This is a complete media player package that supports playing 4k videos & also supports HDR 10. In fact it is the only media player in the market that supports playing videos in HDR. Cyberlink has done a very good job in developing Cyberlink PowerDvd 17.
Program’s other features that includes streaming youtube videos in HD and saving offline copy of youtube videos to watch them later is very welcoming feature of this application. Some major pro features of this players according to my opinion are:
- 4k Video support.
- HDR 10 Support.
- HD Youtube Video Streaming.
- Pinning Youtube Videos to watch them later.
- Programs beautiful and fully customizable interface.
- Supports playing almost every media file types.
however, there is one serious limitation of this player which i don’t like it at all. The program supports playing almost all media files including audio files, but you can’t navigate to other audio or video files while playing any audio and video file. Which is the major draw-back of this program.
This is the serious concern of this media player which cyberlink have to fix otherwise, because of this limitations, users might not like to use this player.
