MacVCD Updated With Aspect Ratio Retention

Mireth Technology has released an update for MacVCD, bringing it to version 4.2. MacVCD is a Video CD player designed for chaining video tracks together for seamless playback. The update adds the ability to retain aspect ratio and expanded save options. According to Mireth Technology:

Mireth Technology has released version 4.2 of MacVCD X for Macintosh OS X, itis popular video player that plays VCDs, SVCDs and Quicktime movies.

MacVCD X is the easy-to-use, full featured Video CD and Super VCD Player for the Macintosh. VCD movies are frequently stored in multiple files (called tracks) and because of CD storage size limitations, are often stored on more than one disk. MacVCD X recognizes the VCD format, finds, loads and plays the movie for you, automatically chaining the tracks together and ejecting the disk when itis done.

This version adds the preserve aspect ratio feature, which allows you to preserve the aspect ratio on playback, or stretch the picture to fit the screen. This release also adds back in the save and edit features so popular in the OS 9 version of MacVCD.
