Playing movies, pausing, subtitles, changing settings, etc. Well, everything works quite well. Apart from some minor details. No workarounds, overrides or special settings needed. As the parts that does not work is more or less cosmetical I think it deserve a rating of at least Gold.
What does not
When pausing the image in the middle becomes a broken link symbol. When leaving full-screen mode at the end of the movie I could not restore to full-screen again.
The movie sometimes lags a little, just for half a second or so, seems to be disk IO related. It also happens that the movie fails to start directly. Don't know for sure that this only happens when running in wine as I haven't tested the application in MS Windows.
What was not tested
Rental movies, only free movies was tested.
The normal installer works straight out of the box. However, to start movies it is necessary to run Firefox from within wine.
