2.08 quits unexpectedly on OSX10.8... skip and wait for bug fix

Skype from MICROSOFT quits unexpectedly on Mac OS X. Disappointing Microsoft.

Office on Mac is also pretty disappointing.

what the point of fixing the issue myself if it won't be inserted in the official repository to be available to the other millions of users.

quote: "NB: Most commercial Blu-Ray are protected by AACS or BD+ technologies and this library is not enough to playback those discs."

So, technically yes can be made to (although not quite as well as commercial players),
but legally no (since uses technologies that have to be paid for, and aren't).

As adam.mt says it won't play protected discs, which is the case with 99% if not all commercial blu-rays. But if you use AnyDVD HD you can then use VLC or MPC to play blu-rays.
