What is Fast Player?

Fast Player is a program that was designed to be a fast QuickTime movie player.  It contains special options such as Preload movie and No backgrounding.  Preload movie loads the movie from the disk into RAM.  Preload movie gives the greatest performance increase and results in smother playing movies, especially with slow drives and remote volumes.  No backgrounding is an option to play movies without having to quit other applications which may cause jerky playback.

FastPlayer is not a fat binary.  The code runs very little during movie playback so there would be no speed gain in recompiling.

Speed Tips:
· Have as few as possible movies open at a time.
· For multiple movies to play well simultaneously they must have been created with sufficient key frames.
· Movies always play better when completely visible.
· Boost the "Preferred size:" in Finder's Get Info window to preload larger movies.

Things That Are Great:
· Has features for fast and smooth playback.
· With adequate RAM, movies can be played from even the slowest networks and drives.
· Display is suitable for electronic movie and slideshow presentations.
· Creates single fork movies for use on non-Mac computers.
· Program is small, compact, and pure.
· Intelligent CPU usage.
· Free!
