Anyone know if they are going to update this, or if there is another visualizer that does what Jewel Case does? I like this visualizer best hands down for my workplace. But, it seems that the current version of iTunes causes Jewel Case to crash approx. 5 days after install. When I go to turn the visualizer on, it will open safari and attempt to open the preference page over and over and over, and I can't close it down. My system becomes unstable and I'm forced to force quit iTunes. I attempted to contact Optical Alchemy several times about this, but they never respond. I guess they got my money and don't care.

This is by far (and so far) the best lyrics viewing plugin there is. I can't believe there is no other decent looking one out there. and yet it has been 3 days since I purchased this program with no reply on my passcode yet. Getting slightly disappointed here - will open a dispute on my paypal purchase if it goes more than a week. or does anyone know if Mark no longer cares about this plugin?

I think they discontinued this service. Mark refunded me on my paypal purchase when I requested a passcode. So I think this can no longer work if your trial period expires. Cheers...

Okay for some reason it appears the website www.opticalalchemy.com is down -- Google search results say the site has a virus and warns against navigating to www.opticalalchemy.com/about.html or /products.html. When going to www.opticalalchemy.com directly am taken to a page saying the site is under construction or to a military contractor website. Mark, if you can shed some light on what is happening asap that would be great.

There is a newer version (v2.1.1 as of this writing) of JewelCase available for download on the author's website: www.opticalalchemy.com This is the release notes for version 2.1.1 according to the website: - iTunes 8.1 Compatible - Intel Mac Support - Improved Song Lyrics - Random Layouts & Fonts So, maybe you could give it another try, as it appears to be compatible with the current version of iTunes.

Loved it when it was free. Ain't paying $10 for it -- overpriced. $2 is more reasonable for what it does, IMHO.

Audio momentarily drops out when album art is first sweeping onto the screen. Face of album spins much faster than the back. The last version always caused iTunes 7 to crash on my 800mhz iMac G4, this version runs good except as noted above. Nice eyecandy.

Great plugin. The text that displays the album, artist, and song info to the right of the CD (by default) is very tiny and blurry, but this is still a great addition iTunes. This feature should have been included with iTunes in the first place, and I'm glad someone wrote it.
