Like it a lot but the lack of keyboard media key support is driving me mad

Great to see it alive in Lion.
MacUpdate should update it and put the real Icon back, not the generic one - which gives the impression that it's dead.

It's my favorite player. Has everything you need.

I've made NicePlayer my default. More flexible and better keyboard controls than QuickTime. Easier to use (and 10 times smaller) than VLC. It doesn't have bells and whistles, but it does everything I need, and does it as well or better than anything else I've tried. I hope the developers keep it up to date, although that's looking less and less likely. :(

With virtually no development for 4 years, Niceplayer is still the best video player for Mac OS X.
- Multiple windows
- all codecs supported by Perian
- frameless (at least QTX stole that)
- PLAYLISTS

Worst piece of sh*t ever. Couldn't handle avi, mkv or mpg. No support for subtitles and changing audio source etc. Why chose this sh*t program when VLC is lightyears ahead.

This is the worst Video Player I have ever used in my entire life.

Can't imagine why you were having such trouble, but it's pretty obvious by the other reviews here that the problem was unique to you. I've made NicePlayer my default. Better interface and keyboard controls than QT, less bloaty and complicated than VLC. Plays EVERY format I throw at it.

Great player. Specially the zoomable view ist great. Only the audio-track should switch not overlay when changing. Anyway great work, thanks.

The beta version has the audio switch (instead of overlay). Unfortunately the movie-files are occupied by the app, so you can't delete them without quitting the app after watching. Also the "Remembers last window position" feature seem not to work that well (I can easily live without). Hope the occupy-bug will be gone in the next beta.

Rather nice little player app, but development stalled?
