Version 1.2.2 "Fixed an instance where Fantastical could hang or run slowly"

Ironically I was enjoying this program until I installed this update, and now it hangs and runs slowly all the time. :(

This is by far the best video player. VLC is awesome for ease of use but mPlayer delivers the highest quality video playback of any player out there.

mPlayer (a cross-platform video player) for Mac was abandoned for years until these awesome guys volunteered a ton of time and brought it back.

Protip: go to the developer site and download rev14 version 2. It has some smooth improvements.

No magnet links for Mac version! This is a vital feature as lawyers are starting to comoplain to internet providers and may be empowered to really crack down soon.

This feature is officially regarded by uTorrent's developers as low priority and they may never implement it.

The mac version is nowhere as good as the PC version. I was disappointed.

Problems with this app:

Recent versions (up to 1.92) are crashy and slow.
Developers are nonresponsive about or irritated by feature requests (can't say as I blame them; it's free)
You cannot individually delete files within a torrent. If you're like the average mac user you have precious hard drive space and so you need to be able to do this with a bittorrent file that contains many gigabytes of files, such as a television series.

It is otherwise very clean and simple and Mac-like. I'll revisit them in the future and see if they've improved the product.

I got addicted to this program. Not perfect, crashed sometimes and lost whatever entries I had just made, unintuitive or difficult work with sometimes, some features acting oddly but worked pretty well otherwise and I became dependent on it.

Then Leopard came along and it got crashy. During my last attempt to create a new client/project, add time to it and bill for it, it kept crashing and losing all the data in that project when I'd try to make an invoice.

So I check for an update. What do you know? Update description read "Fixes a problem some users had of crashing when making an invoice" or something like that. But it doesn't automatically download the update you have to manually download the new version, so I did.

Once opened it tells you to drag the folder to the hardrive, just like most intel apps. Installed. Opened progam. All data for 9 months, including $2500 worth of unbilled work, up in smoke!

Oh what's this little afterthought to the right of the instructions on installing the software. A readme file, well those have come with everything I've ever installed for the last 25 years, can't be important...uh "thinking of upgrading" it says.

Well what do you know, if you install this update by installing it like the program tells you to, the same way you install everything else on OS X, you'll erase all your data. Even the backup file gets erased by a dummy backup file!!!!

Dude you have ruined my life. Think about how you have set this up to occasionally lead someone to ruin their business!

Do NOT install this. Disabling it didn't work. Couldn't find an uninstall feature. I tried to remove it with AppZapper now i get gobbledy gook on my screen. The developer has abandoned it and there is no support, advice, not even an email link on the amendment site anymore. AVOID THIS APP.
[Version 0.6]
