Flip Player for Mac lets you play any files that QuickTime supports on your Mac without the need to convert them through a separate program. With just a few clicks, you can be enjoying videos that would have been difficult or impossible to watch otherwise.
No conversions: This app runs smoothly and plays all videos you ask it to. It means that you don't have to worry about the format of a file or try to find a program to convert it before you can play it. It just works, and that's very convenient.
Smooth playback: The quality of the video playback you'll see through this app is very good. The playback controls are also handy and intuitive, making the viewing experience quite enjoyable.
No extras: All you can do with this app is play video. There are no additional editing features or conversion options available unless you upgrade to a Pro version, and there are other similar programs that include these types of features.
Flip Player will get the job done for you when you need to be able to play MOV and MP4 files on your Mac, or any other files that can play through QuickTime. If you want any advanced features at all, you'll have to upgrade to one of the developer's paid products; but if all you need is a player, this is a good option. Playback is high-quality, and the controls are handy and intuitive.
With Flip Player, you can play everything QuickTime supports by default such as MOV and MP4/H.264/AAC. More format support can be added through QuickTime components. With Flip Player, your videos look crisp and clear even on the highest resolution Retina Display monitors. Flip Player dynamically fades-in navigation controls only when you need them and never on top of your video. With a simple, uncluttered design, Flip Player makes it easy to navigate through your video. Scrub, fast-forward, rewind, skip, jump or step, without ever obscuring your video content.
For brilliant and distraction-free video playback, use the Dim Lights feature to dim the background of your screen. Get full pixel-to-pixel fidelity without any scaling or interpolation. Professional video editors will love this. Player Pro adds JKL navigation and Command/Period stepping to provide more efficient one-handed playback control. And even if you're not a professional video editor, these controls are fun to use. Slow down playback of your video to one quarter the speed. Use JKL commands to easily switch between normal and slow motion playback. Upgrade for premium editing features including scale, rotate, crop and trim
