Try adding the video in iTunes and sync. You can create a playlist of all the videos you want to upload and then sync the playlist.

Try VideoLAN, A/K/A VLC. It has video streaming capabilities and, best of all, is free! "On Mac OS X 10.4 or later, VLC is able to grab video and audio from EyeTV applications and therefore all EyeTV-compatible capture devices. The user needs to install a plugin to EyeTV.app in order to use this feature. Guidance is provided in the User Interface. Requires ...

I had the same issue where an iTunes import/copy of an M4P file did not play. I exported from the QuickTime Player, using the "iPad, iPhone 4 & Apple TV" setting, and it successfully created a file that would play through Apple TV. (The estimated file size was way off however, actual export was much smaller and similar in size to the source, and the ...

ffmpeg is a free command line tool that can convert a huge number of audio and video formats including VOC files. You can install it through Homebrew using the following command. brew install ffmpeg And then you can convert VOC files to MP3 like so. ffmpeg -i sample.voc sample.mp3

Have you tried VideoLAN Converter (VLC)? It's a well-known converter app for video and audio formats. Audacity is also a well respected audio converter app as well. They're both free, to boot. I've been using them for years.

There is a plugin available called VLC srpos that will save and restore the playback position of the last played files. It is available here. There are numerous threads on this subject, I came across the plugin on the VLC forum, using a well-known search engine ;-)

The current, stable releases of VLC don't offer this. However, you can go to the VLC nightly build site to download the latest version of VLC 3, with an updated Yosemite interface and H.265 support. Most importantly for you, though, they have added resume support. From http://nightlies.videolan.org, you just have to click on Mac OS X Intel, and then click ...

What you call anti-competitive is kind of the point of DRM -- if it could overridden by simply writing a new program, it wouldn't be much of a stopping point. In any event, you don't really say except at the bottom, but the implication is that you are trying to watch content purchased from iTunes. Is that correct? If so, you may be much more limited. If ...

None that I'm aware of. Why couldn't the iPads be updated over the air to all download the same pre-converted video? It would take much longer and be extremely redundant to perform this task in the way you describe, over and over again for each iPad, even if a device that could do this existed.

You are making the assumption that windows are always updated when minimized. This is not the case. This also applies to apps present on other spaces. In other words, this is not possible.

For me mpv used less CPU than MPlauerX too. But when checked "Power" tab in Activity Monitor mpv consumed much more juice in full-screen. So for temperature / battery sensitive case MPlayerX seems to be better suited (it may depend on configs of course i.e. scaler/postprocess/... filters). For 720p mkv/h264 video power usage was 30 mpv vs 20+1 MplayerX ...

There are two possibilities: If your MP4 file has chapter itself, you can split MP4 file into two. If doesn't, cutting MP4 into two is your best choice. To do the first task, my suggestion is this MP4 Splitter. To do the second one, you can turn to HandBrake.

Final Cut Pro X ($299.99) This is one of the best video editing software for mac. With professional quality editing, you can export the files as a higher, lower, or in the same format as before. To use the editor, you can use the blade tool in the non-linear editor to cut parts of the video, or to change the 2.1 surroundsound to 5.1. It also has a ...

I like @mat-burns answer a lot. But since we would be running the Applescript from the command line to execute the swift code anyway I wanted to do it all from a single file. Adding the Applescript to the swift code: #!/usr/bin/env xcrun swift import Foundation let kDelayUSec : useconds_t = 500_000 func DragMouse(p0: CGPoint, p1: CGPoint) { let ...

Save this script as caperture.swift: #!/usr/bin/env xcrun swift import Foundation // Start QuickTime Player using AppleScript func startQT() { var scriptToPerform: NSAppleScript? let asCommand = "tell application \"QuickTime Player\" \n" + " activate \n" + " new screen recording \n" + " delay 1 \n" + " tell ...

There is an App called Screeny that does this as well as many other things. $14.99 and can be purchased from the App store

iMovie (not lossless, but better than before) iMovie v10 (released some time after the question was originally asked) now better handles more media types, so avoids the import re-encode for most H.264 (mp4, m4v, mov, AVHDC, mts, mt2s) content. It will still, however, re-encode on export so cannot be technically lossless—another new feature, however, is the ...

Mystery solved! Behold the following two screenshots. The first is from Camera 1: and the second from Camera 2: See the difference? One of the cameras had a DCIM folder as a top-level directory (created, I can only assume, when I used that camera once to take a still photo) and the other did not. Apparently the presence of that folder is what caused ...

Quicktime 7 Pro ($30) Open your video. If you want to see the exact frame number: in the lower left, click on the timer to switch to "Frame Number" display. Select the start point (type i when you are there) and end point (type o when you are there). Move one frame at a time with the arrow keys; or drag the little handles on the bottom. (Here we see ...

Your MacBook isn't the weak link in the chain, it's your external hard disk. The 2011 machines don't support USB 3.0 so you're either using Firewire 800 or USB 2.0 - the fastest throughput you're going to see on FW800 is around 95MB/s for RAID 0 HDDs and SSD devices. More RAM will help with overall speed, 16GB is supported, but fitting an SSD and using it ...

In the Settings, go to General -> Usage -> Manage Storage in order to see how much space every app is using. If you can't find the twenty gb there, it might be in a temporary file that should disappear if the power is turned off and the phone is rebooted.

Wikipedia is not directly using the HTML5 audio tag (which it should be) and is not supporting media in Safari at this time (likely due to it's lack of popularity) so It's recommended to use Chrome (which is basically safari that Google improved upon) or Firefox. example page: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Libre_music ...

I believe so, just login Plex on another computer, and access it, you can stream media date from Plex to your iDevices.

I think you need to open it in iMovie and then export it.
