Flip4Mac WMV 2.1.1 Now Available
Software release adds support for Windows Media 9 Advanced playback and
other product enhancements for Mac users
Nevada City, Calif., May 3, 2007 — Telestream, the media transcoding
specialist, today announced availability of Flip4Mac WMV version 2.1.1
software. The update adds new features and enhancements to the company’s
popular Windows Media Components for QuickTime. A major new feature is
playback support for Windows Media 9 Advanced Profile, also known as the
VC-1 Advanced Profile. Enhancements include improved 2-pass VBR encoding
and MPEG-4 playback.
“Support for playback of WVC1 files is an important first step in broader
VC-1 playback support planned by the company, and it is evidence of the
growing interest in VC-1 content creation,” said Barbara DeHart, VP of
Flip4Mac Products at Telestream.
Until now, Flip4Mac WMV Studio Pro & Pro HD enabled users to create Windows
Media 9 Advanced profiles. Version 2.1.1 adds the ability to playback the
advanced profiles users create or import. Two-pass VBR encoding
enhancements provide improved output results and remove an intermittent
green flash issue. Improved MPEG-4 playback enhances WMV support for highly
compressed media applications like digital cameras. Additional
enhancements include improved ASX handling, improved installation support
when using Apple Remote Desktop, and support for reclaiming file types
assumed by other applications. The free version 2.1.1 update is available
for download on www.flip4mac.com and www.microsoft.com.
Flip4Mac WMV is comprised of a collection of QuickTime components that
enables Mac OS X users to play, import and export Windows Media files using
QuickTime-based applications. The family includes free playback of Windows
Media files and a range of import and export capabilities priced from $29
to $179 which are available for online purchase at www.flip4mac.com.
