Great App

Overall the app works great, but the slider on the movies is no longer "active". The pause button is active to pause, but to scrub through a video is not possible currently without launching an external application. You can use the scroll wheel, but being able to slide through the video used to be possible but is not anymore.

Developer Response ,

Yes, clicking the slider doesn't work in the latest version. I'll get it fixed in the next update. You can hold down the Command key while hovering the mouse over the video to seek to a particular position.

Amazing app for my Alarm Video feed

Was needing something to view a problem one of my animals was peeing in our home setup camera to continuous recording. After I saw the evidence I was able to view 16 clips at a time by selecting each day and 16 image view mode. The app would show me it was viewing in 16 screens 16 clips and clips remaining as i Forwarded by 16 clips at a time until I saw a pee spot and well it was our little dog and not our cat. Wow this app saved our cat and the dog we love so much guilty as charged busted in the act. Would like to be able to set speed for all clips to play at 2x 4x 8x 16x speed other than that great app keep improving well worth the money I spent on it. Also found that 9 images loaded faster and let me scan through with out much lag 16 did lag a lot. Probably my memory acces speed as i didnt transfer files from Micro SD card just viewed from the card with USB 3 card reader. Would recomend to any one wanting to get through there video files quickly for obvious changes or view events they need to locate. Would put this description in your App description when people search for options to do this as quicktime is not an option compared to this app.

Bingo. This is what I was looking for.

I have a nice big second monitor that diesn't see a lot of action these days. Now I can use this utility to show many of the clips I have saved over the years in tiled fashion. It is great. When I see one I want to watch by itself, I can click on it and it takes over. Then exit back to the 16. There is a shuffle button to bring up other clips. Very nice.

Next version, I would like to see the ability to remember favorite folders, offer more than 16 and make better use of 16:9 and/or 16:10 (4x4 on a widescreen is very ineffcient), and the ability to open multiple widows on multiple monitor machines.

I untl then, I will still be a happy user. Those would really make my day. They would take it from 4-5 stars easily.
