    Annoyed with the DVD player App
    I think we all know how Quicktime went from 7 to X. And the fancy UI in Quicktime X is nice. But what annoys me is the DVD player app still have a UI that is a lookalite of the quicktime 7 UI.

    Is there any other DVD playing apps for OS X that have a UI more liek Quicktime X's UI? Or can I fond another application with a similar UI to Quicktime X to play a DVD disc that is in my DVD drive?

    I know Quicktime X will not play the DVD discs. I'm just a litle annoyed that DVD player still has the old look, feel and UI. The App still works though just fine.

    I am talking about DVD player and Quicktime 7/X in windowed mode here and not full screen mode in this entire post.

    Not really. Besides VLC and maybe MPlayer, I don't think there have been any others updated since Tiger. You can check through this list. I've moved back to doing anything like this on my Win machine.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I think it looks fine, but what matters most is that it is nice and simple and it works. I would trust an OS X app to work a lot better than a app downloaded from the internet.

    Thanks Bob. As usual always the best information from you.

    And to blackmac11:
    I agree 100%. But Apple pay Jonathon Ive and his team to design. Sure DVD player works just fine but it has a poor design.

    Ive does hardware design, not UI.

    But I honestly don't find DVD Player bad at all... plus by its very nature, I don't see the UI at all when watching a movie.

    Exactly. One would spend a few seconds top to press the play button and then away it goes

    That I didn't know. I thought he did software UI as well as the hardware stuff. There you go I just learnt something.
