The irritating wait time for a movie to finally start in your home cinema will now drastically decrease with SlySoft's latest release of AnyDVD. A new feature called "Speedmenu" allows you to instantly replace the original Blu-ray menu on the disc while you play the movie or rip it to your hard disc.
As with everything AnyDVD does, AnyDVD creates the Speedmenu "on the fly", to mean seamlessly. The disc is remastered within seconds using AnyDVD's unique "Magic File Replacement(tm)" technology.
If enabled, the Speedmenu is instantly available as soon as you insert a disc and play it on your PC. If you decide to backup a disc the Speedmenu will be on the backup as well.
This newly created menu allows you direct access to the main movie or specific chapters without forcing you to watch trailers or other annoying interruptions. This means much shorter load times and faster access to the movie!
If a media player supports Blu-ray disc menus, but not the original disc's menu, Speedmenu will ensure you can play the movie even with older players not able to handle the latest BD menus.
With Speedmenu enabled, not only do media players connected to the Internet no longer try to "call home" using BD-Live, but you can also play 3D discs on 2D players. And, last but not least, Speedmenu lets you resume watching a movie even if the original BD-J menu won't let you do it.
Speedmenu highlights at a glance:
- Speedy access to the movie
- Much shorter load times
- Compatibility with older players
- Prevents BD-live from calling home
- Playback of 3D discs on 2D players
- Auto-resume of BD-Java discs
Giancarlo Bettini, CEO at SlySoft says: "This major release of AnyDVD marks the start of a very active 2012 for SlySoft with more major releases and new upcoming products in our queue. Although I am not allowed to go into details I can tell you that everyone should keep an eye on our website for things to come."
