Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    The method shown in the article to snoop out 32-bit apps is for iOS not MacOS.

  2. Craig Odegaard says:

    “Many Mac users may still be using other 32-bit apps and will need to get these upgraded or replaced before the end of next year.
    Here is how to find the 32-bit apps that may be at risk.”

    This is advice for iOS devices. You said “Mac users.” Please get it right and give us correct advice.

    It’s nice that they are updating DVD Players but even if they didn’t you don’t need it to watch DVDs. VLC plays them

    Oh, no! Quicktime Pro 7 is 32bit. It’s going to be hard to let that one go, I use it every month or two for quick trims to video files.

      Hmm — though Mojave does let you quick trim video in Quick View, so perhaps that will work for you? Though thanks for alerting me to the need to find a QT replacement.

      I’d like to know how to locate this now too.

      • Jonny Evans says:

        I have updated the story with this info. The app is still there!!

        Tap Command-Space, type DVD player into the Spotlight search bar. You should see it appear at the top of the search results, select it and hit Return to open the application.

    DVD Player App.
    Simply SEARCH “DVD player APP” within a Finder window.
    Open your “Applications” folder, usually located on the Dock.
    Then drag DVD Player APP from the Finder Window search into the Applications Folder.
    now you have a link within the Application folder for DVD Player APP.

    In mojave just say to Siri ‘launch dvd player app’. And it comes up straight away. 🙂

    Unfortunately, the dvd player window does not have the option to stay afloat so really a useless app for a dvd player. Wish I could find a dvd player for mojave that has a window that will stay a float. Until then I guess I won’t be watching dvds on the mac.

    Does anyone know if you can get a DVD/CD drive for the Mac OS MOJAVE that can eject directly from the drive itself, or are they all ejected via the computer app? Many thanks.
