Welcome to the world of RadLight :bye:


This is the first 'stable' release after almost 5 months. While still in its BETA stage, it's considered stable enough for daily use.


For those of you who don't know RadLight here's an brief overview of what it is and what it does :




RadLight 4 is the first TRUE multimedia player that allows you to fully experience all kind of multimedia content such as DivX™, DVD video or MP3 audio at highest quality possible on the PC. RadLight 4 is the only all-in-one multimedia solution on the market to deliver all of this without being a resource hog or being too complicated.


It's not 'entertainment' when things get too slow or overly complicated


In order to achieve the best user experience and the smoothest playback we needed to take on a different aproach when designing the new generation of RadLight. RadLight's unique modular architecture and its performance-driven component management allow us to fully utilize the potential of modern PC's while using only limited amount of memory and CPU power.


It's all about the architecture


The new sophisticated architecture makes RadLight not only very fast and stable but also highly flexible & extensible via third-party plugins and modules. It's really easy to extend RadLight's functionality or to make it look completely different, when necessary (see the Oldskool MOD for RadLight). Developers and power users are going to love it!


Exceptional stability equals happy customers


RadLight 4 introduces the groundbreaking 'application stability management' system with exception error handling and automatic logfile generation. RadLight users don't need to know much about computers. The 'application stability management' system allow us to resolve all problems quickly and without too much unnecessary hassle on your side.

Some programs simply register all file types for themselve. I hate such programs. They mix up everything. This is a big plus that I have a freedom of choice after the install. Will there be a german languagefile available in the future??
