New Dimensions in Movie Entertainment
PowerDVD 8 ushers in a new concept of creative and shared movie entertainment.

Remix files can be used creatively in recording an audio commentary instead of writing a review, or create a new story out of a DVD title. Remix files can be uploaded from PowerDVD and shared via MoovieLive.com.
