    Popcorn 3.0.2 Will Not Compress Video_ts Files

    Okay, I bought the boxed version of Popcorn 3.0 and it would not even load. Nice QC, Roxio. I did download the update 3.0.2 and whoooppee the program actually loads and runs. I've now ripped 12 DVDs. They all play perfectly on the Mac using DVD player. Only 3 were able to be burned to DVD. Popcorn either responds with "this VIDEO_TS file cannot be compressed" or alternately, "the VIDEO_TS file appears to be corrupted". Okay, it's not corrupted since I can play it with DVD Player. What's the deal here? Strange that Mac the Ripper (freeware) seems to work flawlessly. How come Roxio can't get Popcorn to work?

    Popcorn 3 Will Not Launch On Macbook

    Thanks for the suggestion. Didn't find any xvid codecs anywhere.

    Help! Popcorn Keeps Quitting Seconds After Opening!

    I have a similar problem on a MacBookPro OS 10.5.2 Popcorn 3 never actually loaded, it immediately goes back to Finder. I've deleted and reinstalled 3 times, no luck. I do not have any Xvid codec (and why do I have to actually look for that, Roxio?) This was a physical box purchase, so I have no idea what actual version of Popcorn 3 this is. Can't return it since store does not accept open box returns and can't call Roxio without PAYING for it. Sheesh. Color me irritated.

    Popcorn 3 Will Not Launch On Macbook

    I've tried repeatedly to install Popcorn 3 on my MacBookPro running OS X 10.5. I get a momentary menu bar, then it immediately returns to Finder. The app never seems to actually load. Tried deleting and reinstalling 3 times, no luck. This really irritates me, I hate it when I buy software that is just dead in the water. Of course store does not accept returns on opened software, even if it just plain doesn't even install. I'm pissed, Roxio!
