Q: What is the best way to view my movies with movieola

A:There are three ways:

1. Use the traditional Open command
2. Drag and Drop , which is the intuitiv way
3. Double cklick a movie in the finder, which is the fastest way.

Q:How do I establish the fastest way to open movies ?

A:You need to establish movieola as your favorite app, which is done by following steps:

1. Select a movie file with a  .mov extension in the finder
2. Open the Get Info Panel via the Finder File Menu or type cmd i
3. Click the  open with:  item in the panel
4. Select movieola from the popup menu as your favourite app
5. Click the Change All… button below (important)

… and there you go. Now, always when you double click a  .mov  file movieola will present your movie very quickly. This also works for other files like  .mp4  .mpeg , or for sound files like  .aif  .mp3  .wav  .m4a . Or even for grafics and photos like .jpg .tif .png and others.  If you are aware about your QuickTime components / codecs on your system you may also establish movieola as your favourite app for  .avi . wmv and others.

Two more notes on that issue:

–  it is important that you confirm your entries with the button Change All !

Otherwise the action applies only for the current selected movie file.

– movieola opens only one movie at a time !
