ElmediaPlayer causes a kernel panic every time I try and watch video. It is poison for your MacBook. Avoid it!

As the representative of Eltima Software I want to say that the issue with the kernel panic was not detected in the latest released version of Elmedia Player (4.2.168) by any user.

In addition I want to post some explanations regarding kernel panic and Elmedia Player.

Some users say that Elmedia Player causes a kernel panic. After detailed investigation we came into conclusion that Elmedia Player can't cause the kernel panic under no circumstances.

Users consider that kernel panics on their Macs were caused by Elmedia Player kernel extension. A lot of users wonder why the mere Flash player asks their administrator password for installing the rootkit (kernel extension and root daemon).

 Here is the explanation.

ElmediaPlayer is not only a media player, but also an online video downloader. For better links catching from the web some additional components like ElmediaPlayer.kext file should be installed. These components can't be installed without entering the administrator password. This is absolutely optional. Elmedia Player can be used without password entering and installing its components. However, in such case we cannot guarantee correct downloading of all online videos.

So installing these components is the normal thing for the app with such functionality and it does not mean that they are definitely the reason of the kernel panics.

Does this have airplay functionality?

Elmedia Player crashes Lion even though the app isn't open. When viewing video (in Chrome, Safari or Quicktime) an Elmedia Player process triggers a crash.

Steps to resolve:

If you've ever installed Elmedia Player then you need to remove it from your system in a few places in order to prevent system crashes on Mac OS 10.7 (Lion).

1) Browse to your applications folder - Delete Elmedia Player

2) Browse to the following location and delete this file - System/Library/Extensions/ElmediaPlayer.kext

3) Browse to the following location and delete this file - username/Library/LaunchAgents/com.eltima.ElmediaPlayer.plist

This software is very buggy. I had kernel panic crashes during many weeks. Finally killing the Elmediaplayer.kext was my solution. It was not only during video playback it was a problem to download files under any browser. Even App Store downloads were impossible if the file was a little big. Elmedia needs to solve this.
If Folx (fast downloader) uses this .kext, I guess it's also a problem.
