New to this version (quoted from the Read Me):
1. Now supports List (Youtube) / Album (Vimeo) Play & Download.
2. AutoDownloading (Batch) - In the background; separate from Primary Play/Download/MP3-creation functions.
3. Enhanced WebM-avoidance for PPC systems and only downloads as a last-resort - with a prompt (Intel Mac are
4. Dynamically check Python version, and can even work in Intel systems with system-Python problems.
5. New Smart Installer, deletes all install-packages on completion (reclaiming 50+MB of disk-space).
The big addition here is the batch AutoDownloader, allowing you to copy multiple links to the clipboard (links can be separated by commas, spaces, or line breaks) and download them in the background while still being able to play other videos in the foreground.
Also added are Spanish and German localizations. Viva PowerPC!
So give it a download. And when you do, don't forget the Extras/Goodies/Legal folder where you'll find some experimental apps and the localizations.
Of course all the previous features we've come to know and love return for this version, and I'm seriously impressed by the work that went into this and that Adam could do it all with AppleScript. The more likely scenario is he already developed this when I made my original complaint about Vevo videos, but I'll still cling to the belief that my bitching and moaning opened the floodgates of inspiration and led directly to the creation of PPC Media Center. None of this would have happened without PPC Luddite. This blog is all powerful. I am ruler and surveyor of my realm.
PPC Media Center 6 supports both PowerPC and Intel, OS X 10.4 - 10.8. You may download it here:
SLIGHTLY UPDATED version with Pasquale Barbaro's Italian localization in addition to the German and Spanish ones:

As always, my original post introducing PPC Media Center will be updated with a download link to the latest version.
(UPDATE: A couple of people have reported getting stuck in a loop at the end of the installer. If this happens, you can download PPCMC_6.0-App_ONLY.zip. It's the app only and doesn't install any missing programs like mp3 binaries or Spark, which you probably already have if you've used previous versions of PPC Media Center.)
