-BetterPlayer 1.0.2-
BetterPlayer is a simple freeware movie player without the clunky user interface. This freeware program can play about any file format supported by QuickTime.

You can change the creator types of BetterPlayer and even change them back to their original creator, this requires that the file has a resource fork.

If the file doesn't have a resource fork then you can add one using ResEdit. Open the file and it will ask if you want to add a resource fork, answer yes.

BetterPlayer's autoplay and loop features make it ideal for all of those MP3 and MIDI files.

BetterPlayer is in version 1.0, more things are planned for future updates, resizable windows, a favorites list and more!

-MacOS Requirements-
BetterPlayer should handle small files fine, but for bigger files you will need to give BetterPlayer more RAM.

System 7 and above is highly recommended
