"DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT"

December 11, 2013  |  By staber69

 |  Version: Movie Player Pro ActiveX Control 9.1

Pros

If I must give a Pro, it is ease of install. That's it!

Cons

Spent over $600 and would not work in my application. After allowing the company on my machine to try and find a solution, they still refused to refund my money.

Summary

I waisted over 40 man hours trying to get this to work.
I ended up using http://www.gogowishs.com/index.htm Gogowishs software active x. And it was under $100.00 where Viscom got me for over $600!!!.

Updated on Dec 11, 2013

Warning, I am sure the positive reviews are from VISCOM trying to boost it. Don't waist your time or money on this product!

"Good features, over-priced, unstable, no error control."

March 20, 2013  |  By renshauger

 |  Version: Movie Player Pro ActiveX Control 9.0

Pros

The component has many desirable features and will play many video formats, but additional capability for playing the most popular current formats incurs extra cost, making the component overly expensive for what it does.

Cons

Be very wary of this component. It is unstable, will crash on many videos (about 1 in 5), and there is no error control to help you keep it from crashing your application (and sometimes even the system). This is a major drawback in using the component in any kind of application that you might plan to distribute.
Having purchased the extra capability of playing MP4 files, I found many to play jerkily though they would play just fine in WinAmp, WMP, and VLC. When reporting this problem, the developer asked that I send examples. I did this and never heard back. This has remained a problem in all versions.

Summary

How wonderful it would be to have a component like this to include in graphics applications. Unfortunately, the instability, lack of error control, overpricing on additional formats, and inability to play all formats efficiently make it impossible to recommend this component very highly.

"BEWARE!! If it doesn't work, they will not refund!!"

May 23, 2012  |  By staber69

 |  Version: Movie Player Pro ActiveX Control 8.7

Pros

I had to enter at least 10 characters so here they are. I can not say anything good abou thtis product or company.

Cons

See response from VISCOM

Hello,
Our activex is work, because if you run our sample, you will see, the probelm relate to your development tools.
If you use another development tools, e.g. vb6, c#, vb.net vfp, delphi, c++, it will work. so we will not refund, the point is our activex is work.

What is your time zone there? It is 12:10pm here. I would like to do this today after 6pm. Is that possible?

I have a major concern with this is, if I am having such a difficult time getting this to work, what about when this is installed on my end users PC. I do not want to have to have a maintenance nightmare once I start distributing my product.
I think I have been very patient so far, but this is costing very much time and I have to move on to other work.

Summary

I originally bought the $75 version, everything worked except capture to jpg, they told me to upgrade to $600 version. When I did it crashed every time you exit my application. I am using Powerbuilder.

Do not buy!!

Updated on May 26, 2012

Since my last review viscom modified the product to work with powerbuilder. I just wished this could have happened sooner without having to post a bad review. The product is working with my app now.

Updated on Nov 15, 2012

I have had to remove this control from my product. It simply would not work with Sybase Powerbuilder product. What is worse is that the company refuses to refund my money. There are many other products out there. I ended up using http://www.gogowishs.com/index.htm Gogowishs software active x. And it was under $100.00 where Viscom got me for over $600!!!.

"False price, terrible support, mediocre product"

June 14, 2009  |  By zgrujic

 |  Version: Movie Player Pro ActiveX Control 6.0

Pros

See for yourself, but if anything goes wrong, you will be on your own, or author will require additional money for support or bug fix

Cons

Shallow work, very basic and limited documentation, unclear and deceptive pricing, you will need to pay additional $400 or more for additional video formats support (*.vob, *.mpg)

Summary

Know this developer for 5 years, I am registered user of previous product version which appeared to be quite buggy, never got a solution or help on any reported bug, just blurbs, phrases and additional payment demands on terrible English. My advice is to go somewhere else, unless you are looking for trouble.
