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.

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 ...

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.

DivIllusion does not burn VCDs. Authoring VCDs is a two-step process: 1) encode to mpeg-1, 2) burn to VCD. DivIllusion handles the first step only. To Author VCDs, use iVCD.

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.

"For this money i can buy a cheap DVD-player that has more features than this." You are absolutely right on this simple truth that I overlooked. I'm also a very happy VLC user who watch VCD on VLS practically every day.

Well, I have a few comments about your website: 1) On the app's page at your site, POST the VERSION NUMBER prominently. Not on some other page at your site, but on the application's info page. 2) Post the version history on the application's info page or at least a prominent link to the version history (aka: release notes) 3) Your website is, generally speaking, a confusing Rube Goldberg-esque pile of junk. Thanks to your "three blind men and a child" website design for making it near to impossible to find info easily.

Oh, and your so-called 'Version History' in one of the far too many ReadMe's included in the 4.4.1 download? It is outdated. Does not list the changes for 4.4.1 Such sloppiness. I have no respect for your company whatsoever.

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.

If you're really serious about editing your VCD quality movie, you should go for QuickTime Pro. If you're concerning only play back VCD, QuickTime or VLC can perform very well and it's free. Again, if really serious to copy content from movie, go for DVD, VCD quality hardly satisfy nowadays.

@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.
