DVD Assist is an Applescript "Stay Open" applet to enable Front Row to select VIDEO_TS folders, disc images and MPEG2 transport streams stored on your hard drive, or any volume accessible from the Finder with adequate throughput.

DVD Assist uses "placeholder" movies that Front Row can display. When Front Row plays one of the placeholder movies, the appropriate media player is launched and commanded to play the matching media. DVD Player is used for VIDEO_TS folders and UDF disc images, VLC is used for MPEG2 transport streams.

What's New

Version 1.4.7:
  • Worked around a problem on the MacBook that could cause DVD Player to hang on the second VIDEO_TS/ISO played.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented ISO movies from playing if your DVD Player preferences were set to not play DVDs on insert.


Mac OS X 10.4 or later, Front Row
