I discarded this product when they started charging for it. I have not had any issues since then. Either I have other apps/tools that take the place of it or it simply is not necessary. A do have installed most of the tools listed in "Similar Software", which are free. Base on this experience I personally have no need to ever install this product in the forseeable future.

It's not free. And on comments they say it's still free, so yes u can download and install, but when u want to play a video, it asks you to download something ... which you have to pay ! :-[

I just wonder when this might be updated for...er... Lion. It now looks like and plays like a fossil from Snow Leopard. VLC is faster than this.

Running Mavericks on a 64-bit Macbook Pro. Decided to open the app in order to update it. According to the app (version 3.3.4.4), I have the latest version. What gives, developer?

Falsely advertises that the "PRO" version can convert HD footage to WMV. To get that you have to spend AN additional £70 (Roughly 100 USD) DO NOT BUY. THEY WILL JUST NICKEL AND DIME YOU FOR FEATURES

Worthless p.o.s.! I finally decided to buy this to be able to play .wmv files, but on more than half of the files it throws an error message "The application attempted to use an unsupported feature". When I googled this message it turned out that the Mac version of their player does not support DRM (the windows version does support this). They don't tell you that on their website, but rather take your money and then let you find out for your self.

Wasn't Flip4Mac originally a QuickTime plugin? I can’t see any point in a paid stand-alone player when MPlayerX and VLC are free and work very, very well…

Hello. I am not very tech savvy, and when my Macbook 10.6.8 told me I needed to update my Flip4Mac to a newer version so I could watch a wmv file that I downloaded, I upgraded to this player. But still it tells me that "The movie is not in a format that QuickTime Player understands." I changed the file to make sure it opens in Flip4Mac and still it does not open. Am I doing something wrong here? If anyone could offer me help or advice I would appreciate it. Do I need to buy the Pro version to run this file on such an old (but updated to Snow Leopard) system?

To my knowledge version 3.3.1.3 is the last free version of the plug-in and preference pane. That is the version I am running successfully on Yosemite. I suspect that version 3.2.1 would also work and you still see it available download here and there (probably risky by now). I don't fault Telestream for trying to make a buck from an app they purchased fair and square and which they still develop to some extent even if it is silly: 10.6.8 support added in 12/2014? Really?

Eventually, something will break and I might shell out for the update if I still find that I need to play wma and wmv files. I actually tried to buy the Pro version some time ago to convert some MOV files that contained WMV content but there was something my system did not like and could not get it working.

It is hard to recommend an app that does do anything more compared to VLC or other free alternatives.
