I'd like to reiterate how much I also appreciate this app's availability. It can be frustrating to see new posters adding comment after comment that start with "Nice app, but you know what would make it perfect for me
SS fixed a MAJOR omission in Front Row's development that people have been rightfully complaining about since FR was first introduced. Yet there seems to be a constant pressure to refine this piece of freeware to the personal tastes of each individual user. It seems like a chronic case of looking into the gifthorse's mouth.
IMO, SS has been amazingly patient with people bascially telling him his hard work has resulted in an app that falls short of their expectations.
The title of thread says it all: "VIDEO_TS playback for Front Row". Aside from stability issues, this mission has been accomplished. If you're forced into developing support for ISO files, other disk images, perfecting cover art, individual trailers for each preview(?!?!?!), just develop it as a second, premium feature-enhanced app.
And the last stable versionof DVD Assist (before the disk image introduction) is DEFINITELY ready for VersionTracker and MacUpdate for at least $5...I'd lean towards $10 since you literally have no competition. Enhaced with all of the gilding mentioned above, the premium standalone sounds like a $15-$20 bargain to a guy who buys shareware from indie developers like you on a regular basis. Consider Leopard will have a new version of FR that could fix this omission...reward your hard work while you can.
At this point, it sounds like I'm working on commision. But the reailty is, this program completes my Mac HD PVR set-up and I'm very grateful for someone finally stepping up.
On behalf of all the guys in the same spot before your arrival, Cheers!
