    "Mac version does not work"

    Summary

    DVDStyler 2.3.5

    The developer of this app has a very spotty record of building a version that works properly under OS X. The Windows version of DVDStyler 2.3.5 came out about four weeks ago and it took until now for him to release a Mac version. And guess what, the Mac version doesn't work. (If you want to try this app out, look for version 2.2. It was released in the spring of 2012, and it DOES work.)

    I tried running this app on two very different Macs. In an old 32-bit iMac running Snow Leopard, the app goes through its paces, and fails when it tries to write its .iso file. (Two tries, two failures.)

    On a fairly new 64-bit iMac running Mountain Lion, the app just plain crashes when I try to add a second video file to the menu.

    Being built for multiple hardware platforms, the user interface tends to be pretty non-Mac-like, but one can eventually get used to it. It's one of the few DVD creator apps I've found that can actually produce a 16x9 aspect ratio DVD that will play properly on a stand-alone DVD player. And it's free, to boot.

    But I repeat. This version does not work. Find version 2.2.
