Default NVDVD 2.0 trial available

Head over to warp2search to read information on the latest version of NVIDIA's software DVD player. There's also a link to download the 14-day trial. Post your thoughts here.

Tried it...not bad. But if we do pay for it.....and let's say we format the computer and forget to back up a downloaded version, how will we be able to download and use it without having to pay for it again??? This is a stupid method....

evga was offering a free copy to evga card owners on a cd with the only cost of shipping and handling. i'd imagine nvidia also sells a copy on cd. if they don't, its good for nvidia and bad for us because it prevents pirated copies.

Don't forget that a lot of us have CD burners so as soon as you download the software you can immediately back it up onto a disc. It would be unfortunate to lose your copy and have to pay for it again. But if you don't have the smarts to backup, backup, backup then maybe it's not so unfortunate.

THere is an online reactiation through NVIDIA's partner in this project. I did try it myself and it does work.

ok, well just tried the 2.0 trial with star wars attack of the clones. before that i had 1.71 full version and it worked properly. turns out 2.0 doesn't work on my setup, it gives a picture in picture screen on the top left, and the main video doesn't play properly only the top left picture in picture screen. uninstalled, reinstalled 1.71 and it still works.

oh well..hopefully evga will release a compatible update for the full version, or nvidia will. sucks i bought nvdvd and i can't upgrade it.

Ive been using the 2.2 trial version, im even more impressed, and this is comming from a fanATIc aswell!!

CPU utilisation is even less now , quality is just as good with default settings and the more advanced options, very nice results with all my DVDs. hmm, maybe im too easily impressed, but i like it alot

Fixed the problems i was having with the 1.71 version.

okay i don't know what did it, but i got the full version nvdvd 2.2 and all my problems went away. its awesome, better quality over 1.71 with the nvadjuster, and way more features. i love it. and the fileplayback is great and simple.

however i get the macrovision failed error when using nvdvd. i don't use tv-out. i'm guessing its a driver problem. so i'm using nvdvd through wmp9. works great and i get the combination of the features.
