What works

  • Installation and uninstallation
  • Basic audio and video playback
  • Change playback speed
  • About, help, and check for updates
  • Many of the special effects that can be applied to files
  • Audio spatializers

What does not

  • Fullscreen mode - the program does weird things like painting the entire screen black, or producing a large black "block" on the screen. Nothing useful.
  • Some video effects stop video playback (though audio continues to play). Problematic effects include most of the rotational effects and the puzzle game.
  • Converting a file - the program hangs when clicking the "add" button
  • Drag and drop from a native file manager
  • The program crashes when trying to display a video if Windows version is set to Vista or Win7 in winecfg.


What was not tested

Several codecs and some misc. functions not mentioned above.
