em2ac: It's actually called Cineroma and it's been under development for years now. I know there have been several beta testers getting versions to try out, but these versions have never been made publicly available. David McEwen has said in the past he'll make it available when he finds it's ready for release, ie. stable and refined. Ofcourse, like all RO developers, he works on Cineroma in his spare time. Last I heard he's adding (even more) codecs and trying to get more speed out of it, after that a decent front-end, so we'll have a release by 2008, I suppose. Sorry it this sounds rude, but Cineroma has been known since 2002 or earlier and this platform is in urgent need of a media player. I hate to think a RO company has put off developing a commercial media player, because of Cineroma. I know for a fact the lack of a good browser and media player has made people leave the platform, so I wonder how many would be left to enjoy such apps on RISC OS when they'd be available.
