Telestream, a provider of digital media tools and workflow solutions, announced a public beta release of Flip4Mac 3.0 including Flip Player, a new multiformat video player. This public beta release is being made available to the Mac community to allow a broad user base to evaluate the next major version of Flip4Mac.
Flip4Mac is the official Windows Media player on the Mac. Version 3.0 has been completely modernized to provide continuous Windows Media support for OS X Mountain Lion. Telestream also supports Gatekeeper, a new feature in Mountain Lion, which allows users to install Flip4Mac safely and securely. Additional 64-bit improvements have been made to support the latest QuickTime Player.
“Providing a superior video playback experience on the Mac is important to us and is what Flip4Mac is all about,” said Barbara DeHart, vice president of marketing at Telestream. “We’re excited to provide this public beta release to continue offering official Windows Media playback on Apple’s latest operating system, OS X Mountain Lion.”
Also included in this public beta release is Flip Player, a sophisticated new video player for the Mac. Flip Player offers high-quality video playback in a wide range of popular video formats, for the web, smart phones, and high definition movies. An upgrade to Flip Player Pro adds unique features such as intuitive video editing and iPhone ringtone export capabilities.
Flip Player and Flip4Mac fill an important need for the Mac community. These intuitive, QuickTime-based tools bridge the gap between Mac and Windows environments. For users switching from Windows to Mac, they enable access to Windows Media content and easy integration with a Windows-based infrastructure.
