MacVCD X adds Super VCD playback support - version 4.1 released

Mireth Technology has released version 4.1 of MacVCD X for Macintosh OS X. This release of our popular Video CD player adds support for Super VCD playback (with the purchase of Apple’s Quicktime MPEG2 component), adds playback in a re-sizeable floating window, adds the repeat track feature, ensures OS 10.2 compatibility, and provides improved playback on slower machines.

MacVCD X is the easy-to-use, full featured Video CD and Super VCD 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. Use the floating window feature to watch a movie while you use your Mac to do something else. Or use MacVCD X to play the movie on your TV. Advanced movie controls include track repeat, slow motion, fast motion, backwards playback and speech activated control. That’s the easy way to play.

MacVCD X features:
- Full screen display, even on large monitors
- Small screen display in floating or regular window
- Automatic VCD format recognition and file chaining
- SuperVCD (MPEG2) playback on both G3s and G4s (with the purchase of Apple’s Quicktime MPEG2 component)
- Auto Play and Auto Eject options
- Easy to use standard Macintosh Interface with both Movie Controller and Keyboard control
- Track selection
- Repeat track feature
- Support for both multi-language and karaoke soundtracks
- 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

MacVCD - the easy way to play (TM)

"Thanks so much- you guys are the best at support of any software maker I've ever dealt with!"


"No prizes for guessing this's my favorite VCD player. While QuickTime player is free, it uses twice the RAM of MacVCD, opens sluggishly on G3 machines (we're talking OS 9 here) and doesn't do half the VCD stuff MacVCD does. MacVCD is an elegant and mature product which will play MPEG-1 better than QuickTime Player on older machines (low-end G3s and 604es). "
"I appreciate all of the time you have spent in helping me...More companies should take lessons from you guys."


"You sell a great product and it was great doing business with you."


"Thank you very much for your fast reply and customer-friendly handling of my problem!"


"MacVCD is outstanding. My VCDs have never looked better and, as promised, now play flawlessly in OS X. Thanks very much."


"I recently purchased the ShredIt utility and it works wonderfully. "


"Fantastic! Works great! Problem solved! I've never seen such great tech support. Thanks again."
