Editors' review

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Bottom Line

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.

    "Superb video player"

    July 30, 2014   |   By Ngowoke

    Version: Flip Player 3.2.0.34

    Pros

    really a superb video player but still needs to improve the features like equilizer etc

    Cons

    Need to support Hi res icon for Retina Macbook Pro and would love to have forward & backward seek trackpad gestures as in MplayerX. Freeware like AVS Media Player( http://www.avs-video-editor.org/avs-media-player/ ) does much more jobs.

    Summary

    Auto-start when selecting media files is very annoying when you are using the player to compare movie files you have created.

    Updated on Jul 30, 2014

    I like the new icon, audio channel option and new font size option(smart fit) in subtitles.
