Does everything you might expect of a digital video playback app. Very useful app. Interface ever so slightly better than VLC and Quicktime in my opinion. Note that VLC and Quicktime have many more features: conversion etc ... .

1.0.14 (Current App Store Version) often gets the sound out of sync with the video when playing large MP4 files (only occurs with SOME MP4, and never with avi and mkv). Switching to VLC fixes this problem.

Great app and it's free - used it for years now. What more could you ask for!

I have tried a number of these types of apps to convert youtube video to a MP3, this is the only one that allowed me too do this in one step, much thanks too the developer. Perhaps I live in a quantum warp but why are there so many apps that claim to download and convert youtube content that simply cannot do this? At best most can download a flv file, who cares?

Fast and stable. Local Hard Drive sharing seems to have a few glitches, but I don't really need this feature.

I am a long time user of Tight VNC with Chicken VNC or Jolly VNC as Mac clients. Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection 2.0 is MUCH faster and has less screen artifacts in comparison.

Well done Microhoo!

This software is downright dangerous and insane. Based on my testing you have a very high likelihood of getting an "out of range" error and the loss of your display. Recovery from this problem is NOT simple.

1st Reboot you Mac and hold down the command, option, p and r keys. If your lucky this will fix things (it did not for me)

2nd find another monitor, plug it in and reboot. This fixed things things on a G3 running Jaguar.

3rd hold down the option and S keys while rebooting your Mac and delete the "" exist file in your own /Users/yourname/Library/Preferences/ByHost folder. Time to test your knowledge of UNIX and the "rm" command

But if this does not do the trick for you perhaps you could buy a new Mac or pay the Author, he claims he will try to help :-)

I tried this software on 3 Macs and got the same error: two Intel Macs (Tiger and Leopard) and a G3 tower (Jaguar) (1 Compaq Monitor, 1 HP Monitor 1 Apple Studio Display)

And yes I love too test software for the Mac, been doing so for over ten years. This software made me work hard to recover the display in each case.

the Author seems to be a good fellow and has been around the Mac OS for years (probably longer than I have and thats a long time) - but frankly this software is not ready for prime time on the Mac OS X
