Official last version is 3.2.0.16, the one that MacUpdate suggests 3.2.1.2 is probably beta and in fact it did screw my registration for upgrade to PRO, do not install!

Lol at "one-handed playback control".

Let me make this simple:

The difference between the standalone player and the suite is that the standalone player is portable. Instead of the Flip4Mac plugin and framework being installed under /Library, it's contained within the app.

So, you can run Flip Player from a USB drive on another machine, without installing anything. You can copy Flip Player to another machine using drag and drop, no installer needed.

I agree with everyone else though, that giving the standalone player a different version number is stupid and confusing.

The developer no doubt has his reasons for separating Flp4Mac and Flip4Mac Player, but I don't know if the confusion this change creates is worth the trouble to the user.

Before installing Flip Player 3.0.0.143, I uninstalled Flip4Mac 3.0.0.126.

Of note, is that the new Flip Player does not install the Preference Pane or the Internet Plug in, as was the case with Flip4Mac version.

So, are these two components needed or not?

FWIW, in my limited testing, it seems to me that they are not. Well see…

Telestream,

I am still confused. Do I need (or should I) reinstall the Preference Pane & Plugin? Any advantages/disadvantages to such?

So if you have Flip4Mac 3.0.0.126 installed, there is no reason to install Flip Player 3.0.0.143?

Does Flip4Mac offer more than only the Flip Player, even when you do not purchase additional features?

Still very much confused.

I need Flip4Mac only for the increasingly rare occasions that I want to view a Windows Media video that is presented on a web site. So, if I understand well, it is Flip4Mac that I need and not just the Flip Player. With only the Flip Player I would need to download and save the video file to be able to view it.

This is confusing. Flip4Mac and Flip Player seem to be separate products.

If I download the latest Flip4Mac "Free Player" from here:
http://www.telestream.net/flip4mac/overview.htm
I get Flip4Mac 3.0.0.126 installer that includes Flip Player 3.0.0.126.

If I download the latest free Flip Player from here:
http://www.telestream.net/flip-player/overview.htm
I ger Flip Player 3.0.0.143.

So is the pro version called 'Flip Player Pro' or 'Player Pro' (as it’s written repeatedly in the description)?

The former version 3.0.0.143 worked well when called from Audio Hijack Pro.
This version 3.1.0.33 says:
The operation couldn’t be completed. (OSStatus error -12421.)

But reinstalling the old version shows the same alert (after deleting plists etc.

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!

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.

Scale:
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.

Crop:
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 to graphically change the size. Easily constrain your final viewing window by using the presets for 16:9 or 4:3 dimensions.

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

Trim:
Trim the beginning, the end, or any portion from 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!

Add additional export options:
Player Pro adds more export options to iPhone Ringtone and Final Cut Pro, plus you can convert WMV and WMA to other formats via the included Flip4Mac.

iPhone ringtone export:
Create a ringtone from your favorite video or audio clip! In Trim mode, set in and out points quickly and export your favorite movie scene to the iPhone Ringtone preset.
