The standard, free version of Blaze DVD is an outstanding DVD and Blu-ray player for the PC which for a freeware program, surpasses expectations.
The overall interface of this player has a lot going for it and it really makes your PC look extremely professional when playing back your movies. Though if you consider the features you're missing out on from the full version of Blaze DVD, you might be disappointed with the free version.
For starters, the free version provides a clear picture with acceptable audio, but you must have some type of codecs already installed on your system. The free version also lacks some high-definition features such as surround sound in 5.1/6.1/7.1 audio. Though it is able to play DVDs and Blu-rays perfectly on a home computer with only two speakers, those hooked up to a digital receiver might not be so pleased.
The free version also lacks picture-in-picture, but since it's a feature we've never really cared for, it doesn't seem that important.
Like the Pro version, BlazeDVD Free supports many media filetypes, DV&Webcam support, picture slideshows, visualization effects, parental control and more. Audio effects can also be turned on.
