Do you expect it to be done any time soon now?
Sadly (for me) I will be getting a new laptop soon, so I got half way through the conversion job, gave up, and reversed all my changes. The PowerBook has earned itself an easier life serving up audio at home.
Like I said, most of this is new to me, so progress is slow. I'll get some more updates soon hopefully.
regarding CorePlayer, is there any chance we could chip in for source code of this player or maybe some kind of reverse-rengineering bounty? I guess it's just a matter of money. Look what they did in Amiga community, they paid one guy to port the entire OS (MorphOS) to G5. It would definitely prolong the life of these old PPC machines.
....people are trying, or have tried and given up cracking Coreplayer for the Mac. So far, its a no go. Reverse engineering a codec is very challenging I would think. VLC 2.0 and above has excellent codec support, almost but not quite in Coreplayer land. I had Coreplayer on an ibook G4 and it was cool and all, but....if you really want or need 1080p playback, buy a cheap PC laptop, or Raspberry Pi or Android TV stick and spare the CPU on your PowerMac.
Cause at this point they aren't getting any younger, and every CPU has a finite amount of work it can do before it grows wings and goes to the big RISC house in the sky.
That was beautiful.
Just for the fun I am also very much interested in Coreplayer performance on my ibook g4. Unfortunately I can not get a copy of the application anywhere. I do know that it requires a license to work, however I have some previous experience in making some applications "overcome" such issues. So I would very much appreciate if somebody could send me a copy of their installation so I could have a closer look on what can be done. I would be happy to share the results with the community.
You have pm.
Thank you! You have pm also.
what os are you running?, Ps keep up the epic work dude!
Hi, we are still searching for the application. Anyone willing to share the install package or knows a place to get it?
The problem with CorePlayer is that each application is uniquely set for your Mac's serial number. This means that even if you got a copy of it, it won't launch because the Mac's serial number is different.
Is anyone still working on cracking CorePlayer? I have three licenses for my Macs, I can donate them in the name of science.
Anybody know why the developer doesn't reinstate this or make available in some way? Surely they must be aware of it's legendary status among PPC users and also be aware we'd pay to have the best movie player back?
I don't think they're alive anymore...
Not literally I hope?
Anyhow I've just emailed them to see what the chances are of bringing it back as commercial software.
I donated my CorePlayer serial numbers and the app to Macintosh Garden. If anybody wants to try cracking it, you'll find it here.
Thanks for that...here's hoping some bright spark can crack that algorithm!
Pity the developers can't wake up and sell Coreplayer again - the PPC crowd is a guaranteed market.
If it's anywhere as good as it sounds, I'd certainly break open Granny's piggy bank to get a copy of CorePlayer if it ever re-surfaces.
Has it been cracked?
Unbelievable! The Holy Grail Working on my Quad..will test on G4s later.

AHHHHH, i bought that in the past, but i sold my Powerbook DLDS 17'', but this is absolutely GREAT!!!!!
Wow. Outstanding performance compared to Quicktime on my PBG4-1.5GHz.
Many thanks for the link.
I once bought a copy of CorePlayer for my PalmPro with WinMob6.5 (which still serves as a multifunction 3G/WLAN/USB connector...)
Nice to see CorePlayer revived now for (my) PPCs.
Same here - I bought it for my Palm Tungsten and XDA Pocket PC years ago along with all sorts of other apps you just expect for free nowadays
