well I do not want to blame anybody,so...
First of all, I am not one of the devs, so I cannot speak for them.
But I can make an educated guess based on these forums: most devs simply do not have a Mac and therefore cannot develop and test on it. Therefore they need the assistance of Mac owners like yourself to provide tips and help.
Also, keep in mind the devs are all volunteers who also have a personal life. Who knows how much time they have on their hands to actually research and develop solutions - if at all.
So if you do have time on your hands and would like to help out, be sure to post your findings on these forums. And be sure to post the sources and patches, not merely the binaries. As far as I have seen, the devs are more than happy to incorporate good solutions in the project.
Now Redlum did post an official release candidate 1
version about a month ago. There were problems with it, so he posted he was working on a official RC2
I have tried to help out by analyzing what is going wrong with the latest versions of the OS tools
, but am totally stuck there. I simply know too little of encoding or muxing to be of any help in that department, so there is really not much more I can do to be of assistance other than lurk these boards and see if someone with more knowledge comes by.
