Really useful when ripping blu-ray's using MakeMKV and then compressing using handbrake the subtitles are lost. This utility makes it possible to take the compressed file and combine the subtitles from the original MKV file.

Works a treat most of the time, only had one problem where it messed up audio sync on a movie.

I have managed to keep this rubbish off of my mac until I subscribed to LoveFilm that requires silverlight.

It causes the mouse pointer to disappear and sometimes doesn't even play videos so I have to quit the browser and reopen it. Just give it up Microsoft you couldn't make worse software if you tried.

Fantastic app works really well and it is free !

The user interface could do with a bit of tweak to make it easier to use but does the job really well.

Nice browser, the ad-ons are great, especially web development tools. I would probably use it as my main browser if it wasn't for the fact that FLASH does not work in 64bit mode.

So for now still using Safari.

Fantastic media player, plays all sorts of media files such as MKV files really well. Has to be in the top 10 free apps that should be on every Mac.

Can't see the point really, it doesn't seem any better than Safari or Firefox and installs an annoying google updater that runs even when you are not using any Google software.

No thanks, has gone in the trash along with the stubborn updater that was a nightmare to remove completely.

Still unable to use flash 10.2 after all these years, very buggy. I have switched to XBMC, still not perfect but an improvement on plex.

Yes I have tried it and BBC iPlayer does not work unless you downgrade to 10.1, question is have you actually tried streaming content with flash ?

A brilliant little app, works very well. I especially like that it is possible to control it with the media keys on the Apple keyboard as it makes it so easy to stop the player when answering the phone.

One thing I would like to see added to make it a 5 star app would be the option to select audio output device as I would like to listen to the radio via the optical out but leave all the system sounds set to play through speakers on my monitor via display port.

BTW, I wish software developers would stop tagging their demo's as shareware.

This could be a great package it makes some fantastic animations but has a draconian registration system and crashes a lot so I can't recommend it for real production work.
