NVDVD 2.0 Overall result

NVDVD is a quality player with some very good features, in particular the capturing and zooming functions. Although video and audio quality is not the best around, it is more than adequate for normal or casual usage. It's pricing, being lower than most other DVD software players, makes it extremely attractive, although those looking for better audio support (eg. DTS) will have to look elsewhere. Overall a good all around player with many good features - it should give the powerhouses of the software DVD player market, PowerDVD and WinDVD, a run for their money.
