Introducing CinePlay, the professional Mac video player

We're pleased to introduce our newest product, CinePlay for Mac. CinePlay is intended as a professional alternative to QuickTime Player X. It plays back modern video formats and offers masks, safe areas, timecode overlays, markers and more.


Mask video to a variety of aspect ratios.

Safe Areas

View 4:3 and 16:9 safe areas over video.

Timecode Window

As well as timecode overlays, you can display timecode in a resizable window. If you're on a multiple-monitor setup you can drag it to a different display to prevent timecode from distracting the client.


Set colored markers and export them to FCP and Avid marker lists.

Marker Window

See all of your markers or Kollaborate comments in a separate window.

Timecode Output

Output Mackie and MIDI Timecode for syncing to other devices or applications like Cut Notes.

Trim and Transcode

Set in and out points and trim the video or transcode to a different codec.

Remote Control

Remotely control CinePlay from your iOS device with Editmote.

Cloud integration

CinePlay is integrated with Kollaborate. Use the built-in Kollaborate browser to navigate through your project, then double-click a video to play it.

Markers you add will appear instantly for others as comments. Any comments someone else makes on the same video while you are watching it are shown as Notification Center alerts.

CinePlay is an essential tool for video professionals. There's a 15-day trial available and Kollaborate cloud functionality is free to make it easy to share videos with clients. CinePlay is available for an introductory price of $29 and is the first product to use our new online licensing system.

To find out more, see the feature list, read the user manual or download the free 15-day trial. We're keen to hear feedback to help us develop the application further, so please let us know how it fits in with your workflow.
