TransLucy

Via the spool, TransLucy, an alternative OS X DVD player that can (among other things) overlay transparent DVD video over your desktop. Sounds interesting apart from this colossal interface no-no highlighted (bizarrely, as a plus) in this review:

Most of the controls should be obvious. Those three things that look like dials? Well, they are dials that you can grab and then swing around in huge arcs, like we had in an older version of QuickTime Player’s controller. The lower left knob controls the percentage of translucence and the lower right the volume. [more]

May I humbly point the reader in the direction of the Quicktime 4.0 thumbwheel.

Yes, I did notice that particular oddness too, but didn't get around to mentioning it on the spool.

I also noticed it was a metal window, but since MPlayer X and VLC both seem to think that's a great idea too, I can't be too surprised. Thank heaven for Unsanity, eh?

It's not even a normal metal window, either. It's got weird text on the buttons that doesn't look like the default system font and makes normal metal windows look terrible.
