Does ProjectX work on Mac OS X? -Newbie needs help!

Hi. Let me just say I am a Mac newbie and a ProjectX newbie, so please be patient with me. I have tried searching with very little success.

(1) Does ProjectX work on OSX Leopard/Snow Leopard? AFAIK I thought Java apps were 'operating system neutral' -that was the beauty of Java?
Yet on videohelp.com it lists ProjectX as Windows only

(2)I don't have a hope in hell of compilling it myself so I had to rely on a pre-compiled version.I have downloaded it from a couple of sources and managed to get the doom9 'jar' (from 'ProjectX_0.90.4.zip') running (up to a point) on OS X Leopard/Snow Leopard.

The program interfaces opens up but when I load a .ts file the image is utterly distorted: a couple of horizontal stripes of colour and the rest just black.

If I drag the 'timeline' (?) control to forward through the .ts file the image is distorted through out.

If I hit 'Quick Start' it works for a bit then stops. The ProjectX window says " summary of created media files:
"=> 0 bytes written...
-> we have 15156 warnings/errors."

I have used the windows version on the same .ts file and it demuxs it fine.

I went to Apps/Utilities and opened Java Preferences and I got this info
Java Preferences V 13.0.0
Java Platform Standard Edition 6

Any help is appreciated
