yFlicks is a movie player based on Mac OS X's QuickTime Framework. But it's much more than that: yFlicks comprises a wide range of functionality, which previously required a slew of task-specific applications.

Most importantly, you can watch your movies just like you used to do with QuickTime Player. But in addition to that, yFlicks offers the ability to play videos in fullscreen mode, organize your videos in groups, search them, rate them, and browse them in preview mode.

Furthermore, you can easily download YouTube/Google/MyVideo videos, view them as flash videos (requires the excellent free Perian codec), and export them to other movie formats — e.g., for viewing them on your iPod.

Excellent app, but does not work correctly on Snow Leopard and seems to be unsupported. After buying it, I tried to contact the developers about these problems but I never had any answer (btw, I don't think this is a good behavior). So the app is great but only if you have Leopard and can live without support. If you can do this I recommend it.

The good thing is the following:
your whole yFlicks Library is integrated into Front Row as well!;)

Just bought this for my Mac Mini hooked up to my TV... Replaced Front Row as my media center app.

Thanks Alexander for your reply! :)
Nice to know you're working on yFlicks to make it better.

I will abuse your patience and point out a few things about your lovely app.
As a user, I would like to be able to:

- change the background in the preview pane (dark is finer to my eye)

- disable the autoplay on mouse over (it IS nice, but sometimes is annoying), or having a little play button on the preview itself to start the movie right there

- play the videos in a separate, borderless window (take a look at Nice Player for example)

- what else? nothing! :)

Just my humble suggestions... :)
Thanks :)

Since yFlicks is based upon QTKit, we can't control every crash but we're trying to get rid of the problems and we're currently implementing some cool new features.

Sincerely yours,

promising, but it still needs some tuning in the code 'cos it crashes way too often while importing videos :)

iVideo is a similar app, should be mentioned on the column here on the right.
