Alright macgeek914,

this will be my last word about it.

This is what happend to me: I wrote a letter to someone, 4 pages, decypted it with your _non-beta app_, deleted the original file cause it was a private letter, tried to open the encrypted file hours later at home to print it, - and could'nt open it anymore. So I lost my work and I wasn't in the best mood while I wrote my review.

I know that some files decrypt well, I tried it before, but some files don't.

So if you had feedbacks that there are problems with your app I think _you_ should warn your expected users about that, criticizing reviews isn't the right way you should handle that problem imho.

I'm not your enemy, I just don't like the risks your app brings to the users.
And please let _me_ choose if I want to spent the time to help you to bugfix your app, or just warn other users. I'm not a member of your team, freeware or not.

You can talk to the admin if you don't want to see negative reviews of your app here, maybe he will delete it for your pleasure.

But think of it.

Peace macgeek914.

Is this better than all the other MPEG-4 codecs? Is it faster, or what else?

What is this?
An unsecure security app?

Most files I tested won't decrypt.

went to the best place for it: the trash...

to get Lame V0 just put the "Target Quality slider to the right (260 kbps) till you see 0.0...

But shouldn't there be a "Very high/insane (-q 0)" at the Overall Quality popup-menu???

Don't know LAME is a bit confusing, maybe the developer will answer this here for all his users.

By the way: for my ears (using good AKG- or Sennheiser-headphones) Lame VBR new, High (-q2), -V 0.0 - which gives files with around 180-220 kbps - sounds as good as 256 kbps AAC or 320 kbps CBR, - but gives much smaller filesizes.

Didn't knew that, thank you EchoRob.

whole lotta stuff
to read at ;-)

Anyway I don't need -q 0, will stay with -q 2, sounds great (...enough for me)

Nice, but it needs some further work,

- It takes 60 seconds to load a movie-file (avi),
- in fullscreen mode I lose my mousepointer
- I get dropped frames on 640x480 mp4-files
- There is no floating controller in fullscreen mode

VLC makes other problems but overall it is more stable and is faster at opening and no dropped frames.

For now I stay with VLC.
