Luminous, high quality media playback

Watch all the popular video formats

With Flip Player, you can play everything QuickTime supports by default such as MOV and MP4/H.264/AAC. More format support can be added through QuickTime components. Flip4Mac are Windows Media Components for QuickTime and add support for WMV and WMA to Flip Player. Telestream is committed to extending format support in future releases of Flip Player to provide official and legal multi-format support.

Distraction-free viewing

For brilliant and distraction-free video playback, use the Dim Lights feature to dim the background of your screen. Get full pixel-to-pixel fidelity without any scaling or interpolation.

Slow-Motion playback  

Slow down playback of your video to one quarter the speed. Use JKL commands to easily switch between normal and slow motion playback.

Brilliant playback on Retina Displays

With Flip Player, your videos look crisp and clear even on the highest resolution Retina Display monitors.

Non-intrusive navigation controls

Flip Player dynamically fades-in navigation controls only when you need them and never on top of your video. With a simple, uncluttered design, Flip Player makes it easy to navigate through your video. Scrub, fast-forward, rewind, skip, jump or step, without ever obscuring your video content.

Navigate like a pro  

Professional video editors will love this! Player Pro adds JKL navigation and Command/Period stepping to provide more efficient one-handed playback control. And even if you're not a professional video editor, these controls are fun to use!


Upgrade for premium editing features including scale, rotate, crop and trim


Scale your video to virtually any size. You can easily type in a custom resolution for your video numerically, or drag from any side to resize. Alternatively, the handy preset menu will let you scale to popular mobile, computer and TV resolutions.


Trim the beginning, the end, or any portion out of the middle of your video. Simply use your mouse to set in and out points or use I/O shortcuts. For frame-accurate trimming, combine with JKL navigation and frame stepping controls just like a professional editor!


Zoom in or change the dimensions of your video with an easy-to-use graphical cropping feature. Like scaling, the cropping feature lets you easily type in a new custom dimension for your video, or drag and drop to graphically change the size. Easily constrain your final viewing window by using the presets for 16:9 or 4:3 dimensions.


Click a button to rotate your video 90 degrees within your player window. Simple and fast.
