"Not bad for 1.0"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is an outstanding one-trick pony.
And not bad at all for a 1.0 product.
The 128 MBytes download is squarely thanks to Discus RE and its ART file, cause Popcorn itself weights just a measly 12 MBytes.
Definitely is DVD2OneX has more feature and weights less, but that program is also already at 1.4.1. Also, that program DOES NOT come with an integrated burn program.You should ALSO consider the fact with DVD2OneX there is also 1 additional step in the case of archival copies of your DVDs. You have to:
1. Rip the DVD (30 to 50 mins aprox)
2. Prepare (compress) the DVD with DVD2One X (20 to 40 mins aprox)
3. Burn the DVD (30 mins or more aprox) using either Disk Utility or - oh irony!- Roxio's Toast app.
With Popcorn you get a little less features for now -this is a 1.0 realease-, and you save the 3rd step completely and yield the same results. Oh, also its cheaper than DVD2OneX.
Worked perfectly on my PowerBook G4 1.33 MHZ with superdrive, 10.3.6. You can make Disc Images you can mount to test the DVD also, kinda like a preview. Pretty straightforward, could use some polish though.
IÃ‚Â´m more than satisfied. Good job Roxio. Now, if you could release an update that gives us more features and options (like be able to remove more specific things from the DVD), and also consume less heat, because the fan noise was making me crazy. But appart from that, very good!
