Player Trial Version

The 30-day trial version of Player is fully-functional, including complete html documentation. The "Read Me" information follows. Player is primarily used with AppleScript and Frontier, though can also be controlled from any language or environment that can send an arbitrary Apple event.

Please see the OS X caveat on the Player Page

Player Trial 1.5 (1315K) -- MacBinary

Player Trial 1.5 (1796K) -- BinHex

After running the installer and rebooting, you're all set: just launch your favorite script editor, check out the many example scripts and read the manual (!) -- well, at least the QuickStart section. You do NOT need to run the "unlock" until after you've purchased Player.

If you prefer PDF to HTML (and are using AppleScript), grab one of these too:

Player AppleScript User's Guide (333K) -- MacBinary

Player AppleScript User's Guide (459K) -- BinHex

Read Me (Trial Version)
version 1.5, April 1999

For installation notes, documentation and tech support info, open the "Documentation" folder then view "start-here.html" in your web browser.
