I see where your coming from, and I would normally agree.
But at the same time, our Nero ShowTime is not a product sold by itself such as PowerDVD and other DVD Player software. We are not competeing with them in the market, and so you should expect that they have features for the power user to encourage them to purchase the software, that we do not have. Imagine what we could do if we were trying to compete with them.
When Nero ShowTime was first released, it was added to the Nero Bundle at no extra cost, and continues to be so. We do continue to add features to the product, but we have absolutely no intention of selling it as a Retail product on it's own, so there are no extra funds coming in to help push its development. We do have some OEMs who do not want Nero ShowTime in their bundle, and we remove it at their request, but it does not bring down the cost of the bundle any just s including it does not raise the cost.
Don't get me wrong, we enjoy being compared to the Retail DVD Player software programs, as all considered we offer a powerful solution for an item that is offered free with our bundle.
And we will continue to add features to the product in the future. Though maybe not at the pace of a DVD Player Software that is sold in Retail.
