Corel WinDVD Licensing

Corel® WinDVD® is the world's leading DVD and video playback software, delivering superior audio and video quality in a stylish and easy-to-use application.

With more than 300 million licenses sold worldwide, WinDVD is the enterprise standard for DVD playback. It offers Windows support, flexible network installation features and unique laptop playback enhancements, making it the best choice for your organization.

Why volume licensing?

Corel's Volume Licensing program is the easiest, most flexible way to license Corel software on multiple computers. With a low entry-level purchase – only one license plus the purchase of a single companion media pack – anyone can be up and running quickly and legally. The more you buy with your initial purchase, the greater your savings. Better yet, if you include Maintenance with your initial purchase, you can add to your license count at a later time for the same low per-seat rate, even if it's a lower quantity than your initial purchase.

Simplify license management

Corel's WinDVD Licensing program is the ideal solution for today's business, education and government needs. It allows organizations like yours to deploy WinDVD over a network and incorporate WinDVD into a standard corporate image (something prohibited by Corel's OEM license agreements). The program simplifies license management as there is only one license and one CD key to administer.

How WinDVD Licensing works

You will receive a licensing certificate via email which provides access to your download links and multi-user serial key to install your software on computers throughout your enterprise.

If you need to purchase a few additional seats down the road, you pay the same low per-seat rate as your original purchase. For example, if your original purchase was for a 1200-user license of WinDVD with Maintenance and now you need to increase that by an additional 50 seats, you would purchase the 50 seats at the 1200-user pricing tier.

Benefits of converting your OEM license to a WinDVD volume license agreement:

Increased license flexibility

Due to licensing restrictions, Corel's OEM licenses do not allow organizations to distribute OEM software over the network or incorporate it into an image. Upgrading from the OEM license to a volume license removes these restrictions and provides flexibility in how you can distribute and manage Corel software.

Simplified software management and support

With OEM software that comes bundled with the hardware you purchase, you get whatever version the OEM was shipping at that time. This can lead to having dozens of different versions throughout your organization. Converting these different versions to one volume license allows for better software support and simplified software management.

Free software updates and upgrades

Once you have converted your individual OEM licenses over to a single volume license agreement, you will be eligible to purchase Maintenance or software assurance that provides you with free updates and upgrades so your software is always up to date.

A single point of contact

With OEM software, who is your main contact? Is it the equipment manufacturer, the software manufacturer or the reseller? With our volume licensing program, Corel is your one source for licensing, support and Maintenance, regardless if you purchased your volume license direct from Corel or through a reseller.

Unlock your WinDVD OEM licenses

WinDVD currently ships as pre-installed OEM licenses on PCs from HP, Lenovo, Sony, Fujitsu, Asus and Toshiba, to name a few. Unlike WinDVD volume licensing, these OEM licenses have certain restrictions that limit rights in regards to license deployment and management.
