Early Wednesday, software developer Telestream has released version 188.8.131.52 of Flip4Mac, its QuickTime components package which allows for Windows Media files to be viewed, imported and converted under Mac OS X. The new release, a 24 megabyte download, includes the following fixes and changes:
- Added a progress indicator while waiting for streams to buffer in web browsers.
- Fixes an export scaling issue that causes video quality issues with source frame sizes not divisible by four.
- Fixes a problem exporting Silverlight templates.
- Fixes numerous problems in the Web browser plug-in that prevented streaming and playback of various sites and other problems with clicking and scrolling while in the plug-in.
- Adds support for Windows Media scripting. Note that scripting only works with Web browsers running in 32-bit mode. You may need to select “Open in 32-bit mode” in Finder’s Info pane for Safari or Firefox for scripting to work.
- Fixes a warning dialog issue with DRM protected content.
Flip4Mac 184.108.40.206 is available for free but can go as high as US$179 depending on the version purchased. The new version requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later to install and run.
