2.7 and 2.6 immediately crash upon starting on 10.8.5 (MBPr). After the 2.6 disaster i was hoping for 2.7, but the crash-saga continues …

back to 2.5

the only working version is 2.5
[Version 2.7]

Yes, I tried 2.6 and 2.7 on 10.8.5, failure. I'll install 10.9 to see.

v.2.7 doesn't crash on 10.9.1 but failed to make a DVD. With the same file and v.2.4.2 on 10.6.8, success.

Hello,
well i used this Version to make 10 different DVD'S.
I had NO ISSUES under Mavericks and all DVD are working very well.
The Image Quality is the best i have seen so far...
Very easy to use and the Result is absolute Pro.
I use DVD Studio Pro & Adobe Encore before...
So i can compare the results....
Hey and this is free !!!!
You can use it on Mac/Win/Linux !

Dear Dev: Awesome Work!!!! Plz go on with it!!!

I have used previous versions which worked ok (read Chrischram's review, it's spot on!) But this version 2.6 crashes on launch.

From Alex Thuering:"I compiled last DVDStyler on OS X 10.8.5. Unfortunately I havn't another computer with older OS X now.
So, I think, DVDStyler 2.5 will work only on OS X >= 10.8"
Too bad.

- [ ] Pros:
- [ ] Can produce a 16x9 aspect ratio DVD whose menus display properly when played on a TV-connected DVD player.
I have yet to find a DVD Creator at the Mac App Store that is able to do this simple task.
- [ ] Can produce a decent picture quality single-layer DVD with 3-hours of content.
- [ ] Cons:
This application is very fussy. You have to play by its rules or you won't be allowed to play.
- [ ] Application cannot be located in a folder or path that has any space characters in its name.
Perhaps there are other "illegal" characters that cannot be in a path, but I have not tested that extensively.
- [ ] Video clips added to a project cannot have any characters in their filename that are beyond the traditional ASCII set.
Unicode filenames need not apply.
- [ ] If you don't "baby" this application, it may freeze up during processing.
Don't move its windows around or you'll be sorry.
- [ ] Conclusion:
- [ ] Version 2.2 of this application, the last "stable" version that worked at all for me, was really showing its age when run on my 2011 iMac under Mavericks.
- [ ] Version 2.6 is no worse than version 2.2, and has a few more features.

Although I try every few versions, I’ve never gotten this POS to work. It’s a nice gesture that the dev offers it for free, but in the absence of actually working, it just wastes our time.

Same probs as others report, and can't find version 2.2 as recommended.

It may be free, but it sure wastes a lot of time.
