Editors' Review


Flip Player plays Windows WMV files on your MacBook or iMac. Since WMV files are ubiquitous on the Internet, the ability to play these files natively without converting them is a nice feature. Flip Player plays WMV files through QuickTime, so any application that supports QuickTime can play WMV files, including Mac-supported Web browsers like Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.

Flip Player is free, although there is limited functionality unless you upgrade to the full Pro (or higher) version. Flip Player Pro has some conversion capabilities, so you can convert WMV files for use on portable devices like the iPad and iPhone. There are some editing capabilities built in, too, but they are pretty basic. The software worked well in our testing, although to get any real capabilities beyond normal playback of standard-definition WMV files, you need to upgrade.

Flip Player's interface is clean and won't require much time for you to become familiar with it. Flip Player works as expected, and we played back both standalone and embedded WMV files with no hitches. However, converting to other formats requires the upgrades to the Pro version or higher, so the free app has very basic playback utility for most users.

"It works quite well."

Sometimes, it also tries to open up in Quicktime


It tries Quicktime when it doesn't need it.


It works fine on 10.6.8
