Some info on the new update..

http://www.nero.com/enu/press-releases.html?id=1367

Nero, leaders in digital media technology, announced today that the latest update of the award-winning Nero 8 suite brings users a number of great new features including BDMV authoring and playback, improved file encoding speed, and support for Mini HD DVD-Video discs.

Nero 8 has received certification for authoring and playback of writeable Blu-ray Disc Video (BDMV) titles and, with the new update, now supports advanced and interactive features for High Definition audio and video. The certifications were presented by Sony Corporation's Blu-ray Disc testing center and ensure maximum compatibility with other Blu-ray devices for trouble-free operation.

The latest update of Nero 8 also includes playback of Mini HD DVD-Video discs, and burning of HD DVD-Video onto DVD-R/RW media. Smart Encoding is a feature that detects compliant incoming data formats from AVCHD camcorders. This lets users avoid time-consuming re-encoding by skipping the recoding step for AVCHD content when the destination format is also AVCHD. Advancements in the Nero 8 home entertainment features offer even more flexibility by letting users fast forward and pause content streamed throughout the digital home via Nero's home media server application.


Most of this is useless unless you bought the Blu-ray/HD DVD Video Plug-in.

just my couriosity, why does Nero AG offer two downloading links:
Nero-8.2.8.0_eng_update.exe and Nero-8.2.8.0_eng_trial.exe ?

Both show the same MD5 checksum: f07e4f200e8b0dbd1e5a91f6b3805b00

so they actually have to be the same identical setup file... or am I wrong?

Yeah, they're both the same. If a licensed copy isn't already installed or if you don't provide a serial number, it will install itself as a trial version.

TY for your feedback but this still doesn't answer my question/curiosity, the reason for TWO different links here

I dunno. They think they're slick by having two different links?
