What works

Most of the program.

What does not

Several minor problems...

  • With default settings, it blanks the screen repeatedly while in use. To prevent this, set your Windows version to Vista in winecfg.
  • Drag and drop from a native file manager
  • Help and external links
  • Starting the program from the installer after completing installation
  • The output settings screen's appearance is slightly incorrect in a few places
  • The program produces a blank "wine system tray" window when minimized, or while exiting.
  • Uninstallation - the uninstaller is blank except for an image and a few non-functional buttons


What was not tested

I only tested a few audio/video formats.
