A movie player that does not play in fullscreen mode (neither Lion/Mountain Lion or normal fullscreen)? This is joke, right?

Interesting pricing. But then, people pay a lot more than $20 for antiques ...

Display is alright, but it lacks easy commands for stepping forward / backward or changing speed. It certainly is not as good as VLC or MPlayer. Not close.

I can't belive that anyone is willing to pay 19,99$ for this piece of software crap. Everyone, pleas use VLC! It's free and plays VCD/SVCD much better than this junk. VLC even plays allmost every videoformat in the world, including DVD-Videos. I can't belive that anyone is stupid enough to use this thrash!

I haven't tried this software, so this is not really a review, but not only can you watch VCDs for free with VLC, you can even burn your own VCDs for free with DivIllusion.

I have been using MacVCD and MacVCD X for years now with no problems. Yes, I use VLC also, but for watching the VCD videos which are sold here in Asia, MacVCD X is simpler and does a better job than VLC. I would ask the developer to add "Check for update" to the menu to allow users to easily update.

Don't pay any money on this piece of software junk! VLC does the same job, play's other even more videoformats and it's free. I don't think that "rtc" and "b" ever used VLC (are they som developers on this junk?). This app play's original, self burned and even toast VCD/SVCD's without any problem, it even plays DVD's. And yeah, MacVCDX is way too expensive. For this money i can buy a cheap DVD-player that has more features than this.

MacVCD 4.2 allows editing of MPEG1 Quicktime files without demuxing. Nothing fancy just copy and paste. I don't think that VLC does that for you. It plays SVCD's if you've added MPEG2 to Quicktime without requiring you to open each file individually. It has trouble playing VCD's burned with Toast. It labors for a while before playing. It plays VCD's from other sources without delay or complaint. Strangely, the SVCD's that I have played w/o problem on MacVCD were burned on Toast. It plays a whole host of other video formats as well, and the editing features work in some formats and not others.

@b Have you ever tried The VLC Player? I don't think so! For the very slow one's: Start VLC by doubleclicking the icon. Then use "command D" to open a volume. Then select "VCD input" and that's it. VLC Play's VCD's and SVCD's without any problem! So pepole, don't pay for this ugly and expensive piece of software junk.

The previous review asks why he should $20 for MacVCD when VLC is free. Well, I can't get VLC to play VCD's, and ther is no other VCD player for OSX, at least that I can find. So maybe if VLC could actually play VCD's, of course that would make sense. But until then MacVCD is the only option.

This app is for no use! Why should i pay 20$ for it, while VLC is free? Even the image quality of this app is worser than VLC. And the worst of all, MacVCD X only play's SVCD's with another 20$ component. VLC play's them without a problem. It's true, VLC can't handle all the movies properly, but it's free and can play aperently all video formats. So pepole, don't use MacVCD X !!!

VLC is better, but certain vcd's are made with chapter's, and vlc can't handle it all the time, sometimes it skips them, this becomes a hassle when you are really into watching your vcd, and you end up fiddling with timeline bar until the enjoyment factor is gone. MacVCDX is an excellent program, I prefer watching VCD's with it, even though I use VLC for most media viewing, I even convert quicktime avi's and mpg's so they automatically open with vlc But for a free player, VLC is an essential osx program.

I would guess the reason MacVCD is used instead of VideoLAN is that ViedoLAN doesn't actually say in it's description that ot plays VCDs. Now, can anyone tell me if MacVCD and/or VideoLAN will play SVCD formated discs? I don't have one available to test at the moment, and in fact am not even sure as too the difference, except that my home DVD player will play VCD and not SVCD. :)

This program works for what it is supposed to. But if you have Mac OSX, why would you pan $20 to play VCD's if VideoLan plays them for free.(Along with alot of other formats....)

MacVCD X didnt play a single VCD or SVCD that i tried in my PowerBook. From retail vcds that i bought from chinatown, to vcds i made myself using digital camera. For all the hype that the FAQ talks up, nothing worked.

I purchased MacVCD X and honestly have found the program to be excellent. It easily plays VCD's and I've enjoyed using it. For those who might want to watch VCD's on OS X, MacVCD X is the program for you.
