I have not downloaded Quickfire, yet (am on the road).
Seems to be a good QT replacement, though and I wonder what types of video formats it can import/export. I'm on 10.9.2, I still use QT Pro 7.6.6 because in QT X a few useful export features were removed.

From the reviews and after checking out the website, this looks very promising.

Thank you in advance for any replies.

I will not review it as yet. I still much prefer VLC for standalone media playing. But I am intrigued enough to keep following this one's development.

Very good app but it doesn't watch the folders it imports videos from. I have to add the folder to playlist again after adding any new video file. At least I can't find any update function to auto the process.

I'm not sure this would be expected behaviour.
For example, I don't expect iTunes to automatically add items to playlists I create in it.
I'll certainly consider it though if others would find this useful.

That'll be great if an option added.

Is it possible to export the session as a video ?

This may come in a future "pro" version - but I'm reluctant to make the app a content creation tool.

Great bit of kit. Very quick and smooth. The color correction tools are much more precise than QT7 or VLC. I do on-camera playback for various tv shows. I can see this program being used quite a bit.

Three things...

One, is there any way to lose the playback controls when in full frame? Kinda a deal breaker for on-camera work. QT7 controls disappear after a few seconds...


Two, if the user could tab through the numeric fields in the CC panel, that would vastly increase the speed of use...



Three... It seems that the viewer window's anchor point is the playback controls.

So if you view a piece of video in portrait mode (I generate content for cell phones and tablets), the controls get moved off screen...

If the next video previewed is landscape, it gets pulled down to the bottom of the screen, rather than the top. It then has to be repositioned to view the entire viewer...


Thanks again... You should think about charging for this. Or at least set up a donation button.

Glad it's useful for you.
Hideable controls in full-screen mode are already in the next release in a few weeks (not sure why I didn't do it in the first place!).
The other requests should be fine to implement too.

In the meantime to help you with issue three - set the viewer to a size and position you like, then in preferences click "Bookmark current viewer size". Now when you press "command 4" hotkey the viewer will snap to that size and position. Easier than resizing by hand each time.

Cheers.

Nice playlists, nice controls, and interesting markup tools, but uses more than three times the CPU of Quicktime Player. My laptop fan went crazy while playing a tiny, low-res file. With more work on the inefficiency and some hot key stuff, this could could be the Pro we never got in Quicktime.

Thanks for the feedback Ean. I'll spend some time on the CPU munching. For "hotkey stuff" do you mean letting the user define their own?

OS X allows some key command tinkering which may do the job. In my quick test I felt like some things I wanted to control with the keyboard required menu-mousing. Honestly, I'd have to go back and be more methodical about testing. I'll find you later. I really want to go back and work more with the text annotation and flagging stuff when not swamped.
