    I was looking at Switch on the Telestream site. I had gotten a Black Friday deals email from them, as I own a license for ScreenFlow. What I was wondering is, the plus plan is $699, and the Pro Plan is $829. What exactly are you paying that much money for? On the surface, it doesn't look like it does anything one of the cheaper / free players doesn't do, or, maybe even Apple's Pro suite.

    Downloaded this for Mac running Catalina. This was so that I could run an wmv file. Once downloaded the 171mb and it just said that Safari was not able to run this as there no application. Contacted the support email who said they could not help as they only manage the taking of the funds.

    I paid €10,00 for this application when it was released to watch my videos with subtitles. This was all I needed and nothing more. To my astonishment I realized that in order to use subtitle functions I had to cough up a hefty €166,12 for an upgrade!!!!! I immediately deleted Switch and switched to another more convenient product and never looked back. Maybe, this is why it’s called “Switch”!!!!! Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

    i agree on the overpricing. it is seriously slow compared to other apps. scrubbing is a pain, there is a big lag issue. i love telestream but switch is not the quicktime pro replacement it presumes to be.

    It's clearly overpriced but it's the only app I've found that can play .ts files AND display their SMPTE time code. There's a free version on their site. ;-)

    Hmmm. There's another application called Switch by NCH Software that does audio conversion. http://www.nch.com.au/switch/index.html I have a feeling they have been around longer.

    not enuff that they want money for the newest flip4mac, no! they have overpriced streaming and conversion apps too. almost 300 bucks for sumthin' you can do with open source or freeware. no need to test this, the price is ridiculous.
