I just received this email from Nvidia that I thought I’d pass along. =)
Thank you for your interest in the NVIDIA® DVD Decoder. As you may know, our store is currently offline and is scheduled to re-open in a few weeks.
In an effort to give you an uninterrupted experience, we are releasing a new 60 day trial of a BETA version of our next generation decoder called the PureVideo Decoder. The new Nvidia PureVideo Decoder Trial will work even if your previous 30 day trial period has expired. The PureVideo Decoder is currently in BETA test phase and is available for download on nZone.com.
We will send you another email notification when the new PureVideo Decoder is available for purchase online.
New features in this BETA version include:

* Windows Media Encoder 9 – added support for UVYV output formats
* Support for inverse 2-2 mode
