I just downloaded the new AnyDVD version 188.8.131.52. I uninstalled the old version and then installed the newer version. I just ran through 4 different DVD's and believe the new version is much slower than the older version. Since this is a new version, could there have been some debug code left in the source code? This might explain why things are running so slow. It appears to take almost twice as long as the prior version. Don't know if anyone else has noticed this, so I thought I would ask the question.
