I am the main developer of Shotcut. I have a 2007 Mac Mini running OS X 10.6, and Shotcut launches and runs for me on there. Sorry it did not work for you, but there is no reason to keep repeating yourself.

Nice for you, if it works fine. Some version works, and some other not... and testing on only 1 computer seems really few. Some launch issue given console log... If Shotcut is set to work on 10.6, you could take care of all the issue and not only testing it on a mac mini !

Emile, you are insulting. I merely said I had tested it on OS X 10.6. I did not say it was the only computer. I test regularly on a Mac Mini running 10.6, MacBook Pro Retina running 10.9, 2 Mac Pros running 10.7, and a dual core hackintosh running 10.7. And that is just for OS X. I also develop and test this program for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and numerous versions of Linux. And we are not some company that has a lab filled with many computers! It is developed by 2 people in their spare time for free. It works for us, and we choose to share it with others.

And have you done as I suggested earlier, looked at the console log in an attempt to identify the problem and inform the developer of the problem so they can fix it to the benefit of all?

Sorry i don't post anything on Google... and please test your release on more than one computer by OS.

Where does google come into it?
There is a forum for the product, but perhaps you should just de-install it, and try some other product.

@ DanD: Don't encourage the troll. You've written a fine piece of software and you've offered it up to users for free. It works for me (and I suspect many others) on both 10.8 and 10.9. Thank you for this neat app. You can't please everyone, especially those who keep cutting and pasting their comments.

@ Emile: Instead of acting like a broken record, why don't you contact the dev off-list and explain exactly what is happening. Use Jing or another screen-grabber to document in pictures what's happening. Start a dialog with the dev and try to work this out without resorting to endless complaints here at MU.

This version and the previous one do work for me, running on a MacBook 13" late 2007 with OS X 10.7.5 and these QT plugins:
AC3MovieImport
AppleIntermediateCodec
AppleMPEG2Codec
Elgato Turbo
EyeTV MPEG Support
mp4vEncoder
Perian
x264Encoder
xvidEncoder

Hi, I am the lead developer of Shotcut. I have tested on 2 very different Mac Pros and a dual core hackintosh all running OS X 10.7, and it works fine for me on those. Sorry, but I do not know why it did not work for you. The QuickTime plugins do not matter as Shotcut does not use QuickTime.

Have you observed any messages when this happens?
Have you checked the console logs in an attempt to determine the problem.

The software works for me on 10.9.2

The Requirements for Shotcut are WHAT?!

Using OS X 10.7.5 I've tried the most recent version as well as the earliest version (from February) on the developer's website and I always get:

"Error:
This program requires OpenGL version 2.0 with frame buffer object extension."

10.7.5 only has OpenGL v1.8.1, whereas 10.9.2 has v9.6.0. MacUpdate says Shotcut runs on 10.5 on up. No it doesn't! I'm going to have to assume it currently requires 10.8 or higher.

Well, the developer's site states: "OS X (64-bit OS X 10.6+)" and yes, MacUpdate currently has OS X 10.5 or later as the system requirement. I contacted MU to advise them of the issue.

The latest version of Shotcut will not launch on my MBP running 10.8.5, so I reverted to an earlier version (14.03.27) and that works. Earlier versions are available here: http://www.shotcut.org/bin/view/Shotcut/OlderBuildsOSX

This version does work great on 10.9.2. √ Verified.

Crash on launch - plugin item does not load !

I have been using this software for a few months now, and the only time it crashed for me was when I scrolled through a file with the slider. It converted my files ok.

My only negative comment is there is no way to pass back feedback on the site, so hopefully the developer will monitor this site.

Enhancement request, the ability to snap a frame to a file, preferably lossless

Please keep up the good work.
