It uses fast direct-rendering algorithms for every possible HiColor and TrueColor display mode and separate rendering routines for half scale and 16:9 movies so that they are correctly displayed at the correct aspect ratio. DvPlayer uses a new triple buffering technique which is only available in OS4.0+. There are numerous other features including:- keyboards shortcuts, a skinnable GUI, full screen and windowed displays, Amidock support, DVD and VideoCD playback, subtitle support, support for external plugins, a visual audio scope and many, many more.

DvPlayer was developed by Steven, who is himself an Amiga enthusiast, to deliver the ultimate multimedia experience for AmigaOS 4.1. Matthew Leaman, commented on the latest addition to A-EON’s growing software catalogue, “DvPlayer has always been a favourite amongst AmigaOS 4 users and we are pleased to secure it for the future”. To which Stephen Fellner added, “Amiga was the first home computer to deliver a true multimedia experience. My goal with DvPlayer was to continue that legacy. Now it's time to take it to the next level and I'm very happy to have A-EON bring new life to this project.” A beta version of DvPlayer is currently being tested which supports the RadeonHD v2 driver’s hardware accelerated video playback using the graphics card’s own GPU. DvPlayer is available from AMIStore.
