NicePlayer takes advantage of QuickTime and all of the codecs available to it, but without any of the nag screens. That means that you can play anything QuickTime can, and with our plug-in support even more -- including DVDs.

With an interface that only appears when you need it, NicePlayer makes it more convenient and easier to play all of your media. Double click on the window to change to full screen. Right click to pause. Use the scroll wheel to change the window size.

Because NicePlayer allows you to use the scroll wheel to adjust playback of your movie to arbitrary sizes, you can easily do your work while watching a movie. You can even adjust the size of the window when playing DVDs -- so when you come across one of those widescreen DVDs encoded in full frame, you can zoom in so that you don't get black bars on all four sides of the movie when watching on your Powerbook or Cinema Display (using NicePlayer's "Fit Width" command also simplfies this more in most cases).

Use the playlist to queue up multiple media files and have them play sequentially, automatically.

QuickTime doesn't support playing the files you want to watch? NicePlayer has an open plugin architecture to support other media playback engines as well. That means that anyone can create a plugin to embed another media playback engine so NicePlayer can go be extended past QuickTime (i.e. DVD Playback, VLC).

It seems to be a scam to me. Checked files that are supposedly only playable with this player, but no more than a 20 second clip, telling me that even this player cannot play this file, and that I need the Niceplayer toolbar. After installing, the program is impossible to find on my MAC. I'm actually really pissed, and want to contact the creator of this program and confront him.
