09 June 2013

Media converter/player (was ReelBean).

What is ReelBeanX for Mac

ReelBeanX (was ReelBean) is a movie converter and player. It can be used to convert movies to Apple TV, video iPod MPEG4, H.264, AVI and many other formats, and has media playing features available as standard that are often pro features in other applications. Individual track extraction from videos is also provided.

What's new in ReelBeanX

Version 6.3:
  • Reuses the last-used export directory as the default when making a new export, instead of always using the Desktop as the default.
  • Removed use of a deprecated technique for determining the video frame size.

If you can believe it, after maybe 8 years of development, this steaming lump of excrement still HAS NO FULLSCREEN MODE and CANNOT PLAY 2/3 of the most common video containers and codecs in use today, nor even those in use back when they began this video-tech masturbation! Why does this developer continue making regular but meaningless updates (sometimes a dozen or more per year) — such as v. 5.9 which “Increased the range of the bass and treble sliders in the audio controls panel” (do the sliders now go up to 11, à la Spinal Tap?) — when it still can’t play more than half of the most common video formats and can’t play ANYTHING fullscreen? Plus, it crashes probably 30% of the time on my SnowLeo Mac and more than half the time on my Mt. Lion rig, yet all this dev can do is futz with the A/V controls instead of making it actually work? Sheesh. Give it up already, hack. And I want my money back because in the 5+ years since I bought it, ReelBean has never — NOT ONCE — been able to play all the way through a movie or complete an edit without crashing (even though my 6 or 7 other freeware players play fine every time), and those it did play could not display any larger than their native resolution (since it has no fullscreen mode). Hell, even QuickTime X can play most common formats, in fullscreen, without crashing, and we all know what a disappointing piece of sh1t that is. Why do you monkeys waste out time (and yours) with this pustulate dreck?

Completely and utterly useless. Can't really play anything but mp4/QT, and plays that extremely poorly. This is the most regularly updated video player on MacUpdate, and yet it hasn't improved AT ALL in 4 years. Pure sh1t.

I bought ReelBean a little more than 3 years ago, and since then I have dutifully downloaded each and every update in the hope that eventually it would become capable of doing……….something...anything, really. But alas, after all that time and all those updates, it’s still a lot more than useless that useful. ReelBean still chokes on at least half of the vids I throw at it. The last version I rigorously tested was the 5.0 release, which refused to simply PLAY 5 out of 9 movies, and which failed to convert all but 1 (an mp4). And mind you, mp4, flv, avi, mpg and wmv are decidedly NOT exotic formats, and these test files worked well on ALL of the other players on my Macs!! Even today, after cursorily testing this new version (5.05), I cannot understand what the good folks at JS8 Media mean when they trot out their old advertising lie that ReelBean “has media playing features available as standard that are often pro features in other applications.” Really? Which features are those — the ones that never worked from the start, or the ones that you still can't figure out or refuse to implement? So my advice is to simply ignore ReelBean, for its developers simply refuse to be modern ("Matroska, I SPIT on you!") or even COMPETENT in any way. I really wanted ReelBean to be a success, but after three years of crappy, crappier and crappiest, I give up.

Although I really wanted to like this, it s*cks majors times. Things I did not like: - No drag'n'drop support - Didn't accept 50% of my video files (including the most used mkv files) - Many video only showed a black screen though the progress bar was playing. (xvid, mt2s, some .mov file) - Demo does not let me try the converting option (pro only?) - Large video files plays with hickups - Ugly interface. Yes, this is more an personal taste. But it is far from a decent osx ui guidelines. - Window sometimes disappears and cannot be retrieved. I had to relaunch the app - crashed two times playing a mp4 file. In short: Avoid

As of version 2.9 it couldn't handle .MOD files from a JVC camera. MOD files are actually a kind of MPEG-2. I had to use VisualHub instead.

No ability to specify WHAT avi format to output. There's only sevaeral standard formats one could use. This only gives cinepak compression, or DV formats or BMP..BMP? Windoze? Where's the XVID, DIVX, DX50 or other common avi support? Why would this app have a problem with outputting avi format if Flip4Mac is installed, which allows viewing of Windoze Media on a mac? Why would I want to disable Flip4Mac to output an avi? No format or codec info given about current movie - Video Track, Audio Track? What's that mean? No progress time indicator. Just a bar. Impossible to HIDE this app or even to minimize it to the dock...it just pops right back up! Three basic types of audio compression formats to output. Alaw, IMA, or uLaw. Or None. No mp3 or other common audio support offered in every other conversion app. The interface and view window look nice...LOL...otherwise it appears to be just what it is...a pre-version 1 program. Should be called a beta.
