Ifileplaypack For Mac

  • If using a laptop, plug in an external monitor
  • A modern multi-core Intel-based Macintosh is recommended
  • If using a desktop system, use two monitors (one for the interface, one for the output). If a second output isn’t available, the Program section of PlaybackPro Plus shows what would be displayed on the output
  • Although PlaybackPro Plus scales to most modern hardware — the more disk bandwidth, processing power and graphics processing — the better
  • Running other applications simultaneously may cause the OS to use virtual memory and could potentially impact performance
  • PlaybackPro Plus uses the QuickTime Framework, and is therefore extensible by using third party QuickTime components (i.e. use Flip4Mac component for .WMV playback)

DT Videolabs offers two license options, a USB Enabler key (dongle) license for the PlaybackPro Collection and Internet Activated (IA) serial code licenses for individual applications or the PlaybackPro Collection. All licenses are single seat but may be moved as needed. For more licensing information please visit our licensing page.

Thank you so much for your help this year. I'm a gigantic fan of PlaybackPro, it's incredible.

Video Playback For Mac

I am the director of the Animal Film Festival now in its 5th year. We have used PlaybackPro for our event since year two, and we absolutely love it. The software is very user friendly so that even our least tech-aware staff person can operate an entire show. And creating shows in the software is incredibly easy and fast.
