PowerDVD from Cyberlink Now on Linux

PowerDVD is one of the most popular playback software which comes bundled with many DVD and Blu-ray optical drives. Until now it was available only for the windows platform but now it is also available for the Penguin boxes and laptops and the recent 'nettops' - the budget desktops and laptops designed to run Linux. This decision was made by Cyberlink on Thursday.

"PowerDVD Linux is derived from Cyberlink's movie player, PowerDVD, and supports DVD Video playback with menu navigation, subtitles, and video rewind and fast-forward. PowerDVD Linux incorporates CyberLink TrueTheaterT Lighting for automatic video lighting enhancement, and support for CyberLink TrueTheaterT Surround and Dolby audio technology.

CyberLink PowerCinema Linux, on the other hand, is an all-in-one media player for the Linux operating system that can handle DVDs, video files, music files, photos, and even manage portable and plug-in devices. The application supports a wide range of video formats, including ASF, WMV, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, DAT, and AVI.

The two new applications will be made available via OEM licensing. Currently, it's unclear if they will be available in retail versions."
