PowerDVD 22 builds on CyberLink's pioneering media technology by offering exciting new features that offer users more control and customization options. Users can tailor their experience to match their preferences, for example, deeper colors, better lighting, and enhanced audio, such as high-fidelity 7.1 surround sound.

PowerDVD 22 includes a new keep pitch algorithm that maintains audio quality at the highest level during slow-speed playback, ideal for honing in on a video's most intricate details without a distorted soundtrack. PowerDVD 22 optimizes playback between devices. New tools allow users to trim and extract any section of their media's video or audio and convert them into smartphone-friendly formats. This includes MP4 for video and AAC or MP3 for audio. PowerDVD 22 also boasts faster transcode and uploading times, faster playback, and thumbnail generation on any part of the play bar for easy media skimming.

Enjoy YouTube like never before with PowerDVD 22. Next-generation TrueTheater® enhancements enrich YouTube videos with deeper colors, better lighting, and enhanced audio, no matter the original’s resolution – even 4K. Enjoy all-new matched playback speed controls, the ability to subscribe and unsubscribe within PowerDVD, and search capabilities by both channels and playlists.
