A suitable media player is a crucial part of each and every modern computer. Unfortunately, the number of available applications makes choosing one by no means an easy decision. One of the leaders on the market it BlazeDVD – a lightweight, free application created to play DVDs as well as other media formats.
Just like any up-to-date program, BlazeDVD supports all the files saved in HD formats of 1080i and 1080p. In the freeware version mono and stereo sound is supported, while the Pro variant manages also 5.1, 6.1 and 7.1 dolby surround. The program displays the subtitles and those yearning for some aesthetic variety are presented with a wealthiness of extra skins.
One of the interesting features of the application is screen saving. Should we like one of the scenes, we can share it with our friend by taking a “photo” of the screen. If you're not satisfied with just one snapshot, you can easily save a whole part in MPEG4 or MP3 format and send it to a friend.
The users are also provided with options concerning battery life saving, such as automatically switching off the computer after watching a movie. This function proves useful especially to the users of mobile devices such as netbooks, notebooks and tablets. We can pick a minimal level of energy so after the device hits the critical number, the film is no longer played.
Blaze DVD works with movies that are saved on discs in DVD, VCD, SVCD, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray and many more formats. Additionally, it deals with MP3, RMI, RM, RMVB, MOV, QT, SWF, OGM, MPG, VOB, AC3, ASF, M1V, M2V, MOV, QT, AVI, WMV, DAT, VRO, WAV, MID, WM, WMA, MP2, MP3, RMI, RM, RMVB, MOV, QT, SWF, OGM, etc.
