Flip4Mac WMV 2.2 adds Leopard, better streaming

updated 10:05 am EST, Wed December 26, 2007

Flip4Mac WMV 2.2 ships

Telestream has released a new update for its Flip4Mac WMV Components packages, bringing their version to 2.2. The software is used to play, import and/or convert Windows Media videos in a manner compatible with QuickTime; the upgraded edition is now fully compatible with Mac OS X Leopard, and should better support online streaming, whether through websites or directly from servers. The application now also has a JavaScript browser plug-in, which allows web developers to create interactive options for users such as playlists and custom buttons.

Intel Macs encode substantially faster than in previous instances of the software, in some cases as much as five times faster. Video quality has been improved when encoding two-pass VBR, and Microsoft Silverlight apps can now be built for the web. Prices for the full version of Flip4Mac WMV range from $30 to $100; the basic player is free, however, as is the upgrade from earlier full editions.

    can't download

    I tried to download the free player from the Microsoft site, but the download button did not trigger a download. I am using the latest version of Safari on Mac OS 10.4.11.
