InterActual Technologies, Inc. (Freeware)

Interactual Player (previously called PCFriendly) is a media player program that enables users to play DVDs in their computer. This program provides basic media player controls used in playing video content from DVDs. These include the play, pause, stop, rewind, fast forward, and skip buttons, along with volume and mute controls. Interactual Player is capable of playing DVDs similar to conventional DVD players; allowing users to access a DVD’s interactive menu, view movies per chapter, view extra content such as commentaries, behind-the-scene footages, pop-up notes, slide shows, synchronized screenplays, and games. This program also allows users to load subtitles, change the subtitle language, and change the audio tracks of their DVD movies. Interactual Player supports its own DVD decoder called Interactual that is used to render DVD video and stream its embedded audio content. In addition to these, Interactual Player provides a library of customizable themes and skin colors that allows users to change the appearance of the media player window. Users may choose between a selection of color schemes  such as fire, gold, ether, wind, razor, thin blue, thin yellow, thin black & white, thin green, thin pink, thin orange, and shooting star. This media player also provides three themes based from three different movies: Terminator 2, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and Spider Man.

Interactual Player features a simple user interface that contains two main parts. First part contains the media player controls such as play, pause, stop, fast forward, rewind, skip, etc. The next section is the video display section where users can watch their DVD movies. However, Interactual Player’s interface changes depending on the uploaded theme. For example, the Terminator 2 theme provides a futuristic display screen and buttons based from the technology from the movie, while Spider Man provides a comic book like user interface.
