MacVCD X version 4.0 released
You can now play Video CDs on OS X! Mireth Technology has released version 4.0 of MacVCD X for Mac OS X. This is the first release of our VCD player that supports the native Video CD format on Mac OS X. You can now insert a VCD in the CD Rom drive of your Macintosh running Mac OS X and watch the movie.
MacVCD X is the easy-to-use, full screen, full featured Video CD Player for the Macintosh. VCD movies are frequently stored in multiple files (called tracks) and because of CD storage size limitations, are often stored on more than one disk. MacVCD X recognizes the VCD format, finds, loads and plays the movie for you, automatically chaining the tracks together and ejecting the disk when it’s done. Sit back and enjoy the movie on full screen, or even on your TV, with no interruptions except to insert the next disk.
MacVCD X also comes with several control options. Use the menu bar and the movie controller on the top and bottom of the screen, or maximize screen size by hiding the menu bar and movie controller and use the keyboard equivalents instead. You can also use the Hands Free(TM) speech activated controls with a stereo headset to control the movie. That’s the easy way to play.
MacVCD X features:
- Full screen display, even on large monitors
- Automatic VCD format recognition and file chaining
- Auto Play and Auto Eject options
- Easy to use standard Macintosh Interface with both Movie Controller and Keyboard control
- Track selection
- Support for both multi-language and karaoke soundtrack
- Hands Free(TM) speech activated control
- Playback on a second display (like a TV)
- Advanced movie controls including slow motion, fast motion and backwards playback
Version 4.0 adds support for the native Video CD format on Mac OS X version 10.1
