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 62.1 megabyte download, includes the following fixes and changes:
- Introduced the new Flip Player application for playing, editing, and transcoding video and audio. Flip Player supports unique features such as dimming the background, cropping video, and creation of iPhone ringtones. It also supports exporting to Apple and Telestream applications, exporting to Apple devices, and Windows Media. Flip Player replaces the WMV Player application.
- All software is now signed with a digital certificate from Apple to address security and anti-malware requirements in Gatekeeper.
- Added support for the application/x-ms-wmp mime type.
- Added 64-bit Core Audio support for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.
- Flip4Mac will now continue playing even if it encounters corrupted audio packets, as long as there are enough valid packets to prevent a perceptible problem with the audio.
- Fixed a bug that prevented Flip4Mac from opening local wvx files.
- Fixed a bug that prevented MMS stream playback and resulted in a -19160 error.
- Fixed potential crashes and memory leaks.
- Fixed various issues with QuickTime X Player 10.2 in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.
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 an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.7 or later to install and run.
