Press Release

November 25, 2003
Preserve aspect ratio when watching VCDs - Mireth Technology releases MacVCD X 4.2

Mireth Technology has released version 4.2 of MacVCD X for Macintosh OS X, it’s popular video player that plays VCDs, SVCDs and Quicktime movies. Version 4.2 adds the preserve aspect ratio feature, which allows you to preserve the aspect ratio on playback, or stretch the picture to fit the screen. This release also adds back in the save and edit features so popular in the OS 9 version of MacVCD.

MacVCD X is the full featured Macintosh movie player that plays Video CD, Super VCD, and Quicktime movies. 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.

Key features include:

- Full screen display (even on large monitors)
- Preserve aspect ratio or stretch to fit screen on playback
- Small screen display in floating or regular window
- Editing and saving
- VCD and Quicktime playback
- Super VCD (MPEG2) playback on both G3s and G4s (with purchase of Apple's Quicktime MPEG2 component)
- Automatic VCD format recognition and file chaining
- Auto play and auto eject
- Easy to use standard Macintosh interface
- Track selection & repeat track features
- Hands Free ™ speech activated controls
- Playback on a second display (like a TV)

MacVCD - the easy way to play (TM)
