What does PresentMovie do?

PresentMovie plays QuickTime compatible movies (.mov, .mpg or VCDs)
stretched to fit the full screen.

The main reason I wrote PresentMovie was to allow my children to easily view
QT movies without having to go through the multiple steps required in
QuickTime Player Pro. (cmd-O to open movie, cmd-M for present movie, select
full screen with mouse, click OK)

How do I use it?

PresentMovie is unusual in that it doesn't have a standard user interface.
You can use it in a few different ways:

1) Drag one or more movies to PresentMovie and they are played one after the

2) Drag a folder containing movies to PresentMovie and they are played.
(Only the movies in the immediate folder.)

3) Place a copy of PresentMovie in a folder with one or more movies and then
simply launch PresentMovie which scans the folder in which you launched it
for movies which it then plays.

4) Drag a VCD icon to PresentMovie and it is played. (MacOS 8.1-9.2 only)

Keyboard commands:

--- Movie Size ---
0 - half size
1 - normal size
2 - double size
3 - fill screen maintaining aspect ratio (default)
(Note that 0-3 match the equivalent cmd-keys in QuickTime Player)
4 - fill screen completely (will distort if aspect ratio of movie doesn't
match monitor)
- - reduce size
+ - increase size
