NicePlayer Finally Updated

June 11th, 2008 No comments

There there blog, I know I’ve neglected you.  I’ve been super busy and … yes, yes ok I know excuses won’t cut it here.  You’re pissed.  I’m sorry.

Here is a peace offering instead:  My favorite (and default) video player for OS X, NicePlayer, has finally been updated in the form of a preview build.  This preview includes the return of remote control support, something which has been broken since 10.5 originally came out. Yes, that is quite a long time now and yes, I did wonder up until the moment I found this preview build if the application was dead in the water.

Enjoy!
