    "Video player for mac users"

    September 02, 2007   |   By sigalakos

    Version: Chroma player 2007.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    After years of using VLC as my video player of choice I came upon Chroma Player. This is how a video player for the mac platform should look and act like. Used it for the full 15-day trial period and never had a crash. Much more stable than VLC but the best part is how it renders subtitles using the native resolution of the monitor instead of that of the video file (like VLC). The result is crisp text that doesn't strain yor eyes. Also try using the transparent background subtitle style (the animation of the text box is wonderful). I love Chroma and use it a lot so I wrote a Sofa Control script for that (it's in the new version of Sofa Control).
    I hope the next versions will add playlist support. If you like me are anal about type (and if you're using a mac you should be) and view a lot of movies with subtitles then Chroma is the player for you.

    I've tried everything to play my wife's Korean AVI's with english subtitles so I can understand too. Some of them were damaged and would kill VLC. I had resigned myself to using GOMplayer in Windows via Boot Camp when I found this. I thought GOm was the best out there for any platform, and I was wrong!

    "AVI"

    Well after searching for hours for a straightforward avi player for Mac this suits me fine and am willing to pay the $22.00 to keep it. I don't know of any other players that would work anyway. I just didn't see how to go about purchasing if you wanted to

    "perfect for G3's"

    September 14, 2006   |   By MySchizoBuddy--2008

    Version: Chroma player 2006.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The value is in the fact that on a G3, it doesn't drop a single frame.
    None of VLC, Mplayer or Xineplayer can do that.

    It might be using quicktime underneath, but it works like a charm on my g3, Quicktime cannot even play the darn thing without going into audio and video sync problems and dropping frames.

    "Excellent Player"

    September 04, 2006   |   By remixed

    Version: Chroma player 2006.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    As other people have already pointed out there are a number of free video players on Mac OS with many of the same features and sometimes more features (e.g. VLC).

    What this player lacks in features vs. VLC (Playlist, audio channel selection etc.) it makes up for in it's polished interface and truely excellent decoding quality. Videos look slightly better than VLC, sync is the best I've seen on Mac OS and I clocked CPU usage as taking half of what VLC required. In fact if you have a low end mac this is THE player for you. If you don't have a low end mac then you need to consider how much you like the interface of this program and also how important some of the neat features such as IntelliAspect (which usefullness varies) and Apple Remote Support are to you.

    I liked the quality of the program, the video quality, low CPU usage and the regular updates (thus far) so I decided to purchase the program.

    It definately isn't something every user should run out and buy, but I think it's a quality program which for some users is worthwhile.
