- Pro Player is designed for playback of .mov, .mp4 and audio files. It does not support playback of MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 files. XAVC S codec is not supported due to limitations with QuickTime.
- Pro Player will open MXF files (including XAVC) if the Pro Video Formats update is installed (requires purchase of Final Cut Pro, Motion or Compressor).
- Avid DNxHR codec does not decode alpha channels correctly. This affects display in the Player and thumbnails in the Browser. Avid are aware of the bug.
- If Pro Player is crashing on opening of a movie, it is likely that you have an old QuickTime codec on your system that needs updating. See this support article from Boinx Software for details


Release Notes:

- Critical fix for app hanging at launch if there are more than 10 recent files.

Version 1.0.3
Review by TMoore3

Simple, but excellent! - The simple elegance and functionality of this app is outstanding for managing all of your clips with everything you need displayed clearly. I really like the ability to have forward and backward individual frame control since I'm always looking for sources of flicker on bad frames. It makes every clip look great as well by giving it a high tech frame. Nice job…..

Mr. - A waste of money. So sorry I got duped by the AppStore and the App itself.
