great stuff! I would pay top dollar for this if it exported or “trimmed” clips based on in and out points and if it opened mkv, avis, flvs, etc.. why call them trim handles if the app can't trim?

thank you & respect! this App does a wonderful job if you discuss videos with someone and need to know the exact time codes.... I always make some annotation in the videos and the ability to paint on videos is amazing and a real timesaver... Just Love the App!

Very useful utility. If you use it for nothing else, you'll use it for PROPER TIMECODE DISPLAY! Apple's asinine QuickTime Player won't even show real timecode from the file, but QuickFire will. This is a huge time-saver when an editor needs to collaborate with other people on the project who do not have editing software but need to review footage and provide notes at specific times. And the developer is responsive to inquiries and ideas.

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.

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.

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.
