DVD Player Software Reviews - Top Features and DVD Players

By: Richard Seng

Most people enjoy watching movies, but few know what to look for in a DVD player. From basic beginnings to important features, this will help you decide what DVD player is best for you.DVD players have three important parts-the drive motor, a laser and lens system, and a tracking mechanism. The DVD is made up of information spiraled in a pattern of incredibly tiny "bumps" which can be read by the DVD player. The drive motor of the DVD player spins the DVD at a specific speed-between 200 and 500 rotations per minute. Meanwhile, the laser and lens focuses on and 'reads' the bumps on the DVD. Meanwhile, the tracking mechanism makes sure the laser follows the spiral track of bumps. As these parts work together, the video and audio is projected onto your screen for viewing.Different DVD players have different features. Most play DVD movies, music CDs and video CDs (such as music videos). The player uses various types of decoder, depending on what kind of DVD player you own.

Some DVD players simulate surround sound, makig it seem that you have surround sound even though you might have only two speakers.Computer-operated DVD players are often very easy to use, with many extra features. Parental control features let you decide what types of movies your children are watching. You can take pictures from different movies and save it as an image, and a few types of DVD player software lets you set the movie as your desktop. The movie plays as a background so you can watch the movie while working on other areas of the computer. Some let you bypass region codes, meaning you can watch movies from all parts of the world.When choosing a DVD player, it is best to consider the types of features it has. Are parental controls necessary? Do you want to be able to watch different types of movies? Often, the more features available, the better.Features: Check to see how easy it is to use the DVD player.
