What Has Happened with Roxio’s Cineplayer BD With 3D Software

May 13th, 2012 · 5 Comments · General 3D News

There have been only four software Blu-ray 3D players for PC available allowing you to play Blu-ray 3D movies on your computer running Windows operating system – Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre, Corel WinDVD, Cyberlink PowerDVD and Roxio CinePlayer BD. But now it seems that Roxio CinePlayer BD with 3D is gone for good and it has been “replaced” with Roxio CinePlayer with 3D as if the Blu-ray 3D-capable software never existed. If you are wondering what is the reason for that, well it is most likely due to the fact that Corel bought the Roxio product line earlier this year and they have probably decided to kill the Roxio CinePlayer with 3D software in favor of their Corel WinDVD Pro 11 solution that plays back Blu-ray 3D movies…

So a the moment you only get to choose between three different software solutions if you want to be able to play back Blu-ray 3D movies on your computer and these are: Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre 5, Corel WinDVD 11 Pro or Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 Pro/Ultra. If I have to rate those three personally I’d go first with Cyberlink PowerDVD 12, then Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre 5 and the third one would be Corel WinDVD 11 Pro. Which one of these are you using and is there someone still with Roxio CinePlayer BD with 3D that is not very happy with Corel practically getting rid of that product after acquiring the Roxio product line?

    Right… I’m going to rent a 3D Blu-ray next week to see if I can still play them. I purchased Roxio CinePlayer BD with 3D last year.

    DVDFab have just come out with a media player that supposedly will play all 3d content on your PC. No price yet as it’s new with a 60 day free trial.

    Cyberlink PowerDVD 11 also plays BluRay 3D.

    3D Blu-ray selection at my local movie store was quite pathetic, so I won’t find out anytime soon if I can play 3DBD’s.
