The latest Version of Transmission is using 15% to 20% of my CPU on a MacBookAir.
Transmission only has to handle four files and the download speed for all those four together is just 20kb/sec. (upload is only about 10kb/sec)
I tried to restart the app and tried a reboot of the computer. Still the same.
Is there any other very lightweight bittorrent client out there?
Thank you. :-)

Mplayer has always been my favorite movie player because of two (rather simple) reasons:

1. lightweight
2. You can use the arrow keys to jump 15 or 30 seconds within the movie

The mplayer extended, well, extends by giving further features.

Thank you for this great builds. Keep up your work; it's definitely appreciated.

I've been using "blank" (just black) screensavers since 10.1.

The main advantage of this one is, that the display not only turns black, but is also switched off.

Very cool and just what I wanted.

I've been using it for quite some time now on a MBP and it works perfectly.

Thank you very much for this simple piece of software that makes you happy every day... ;-)

Hi. I would love to see a properly working universal version of this app.

This app is cool.

Thank you very much and keep up the development.

Maybe Apple will buy it from you like they bought cover flow. ;-)

go for example to http://www.google.com

Make a picture search for e.g. "apple".

Once you have the result move your mouse over one of the pictures and you will see a square at left corner of the picture. Click it and enjoy.

Good made plugin with very nice and intuitive gui. Supports the quite useful logbook feature. No flaws so far. I hope the developer keeps up the good work and will make a Leopard version as soon as Leopard is out of course.

I would love to see a network version of the game. Maybe with a chat window to play with friends in other towns.

Open blank in a new tab doesn't seem to work anymore?

That was the main feature for me...

Can't unzip.

What about a fix? Thank you.

You can't jump 10 or 30 seconds with the arrow keys any more? That was the only reason I used mplayer. Sorry, but that really sucks.

Another thing I find a little bit strange is, that you always have two player windows by pressing the playlist button? It would be cool to include an option in the prefs to open the playlist only (which has all necessary play/pause etc. buttons)

Sorry, reinstalled mplayer and now it works. In fact I guess I was just trying to watch a movie that didn't support the arrow key jumps.

Since I've installed this version I have trouble. Stripes in movies, the arrow keys work some time, some time not with the same film. I would like to go back to the older version. Where does mplayer puts it's files? I would like to delete them. Thanks....
