Have you tried nPlayer? That's what I use right now, allows streaming and great quality of the videos I watch.

The easiest way to to stream it via AirPlay. You could also use a cable to hook up your TV, or stream it from an iDevice. You could also put in on a supported video stream site (like YouTube), and play it from the Apple TV's app. There are more ways then I'm able to list in the answer, so explore!

sounds like you only recovered the low-quality proxies. The structure should be Project Name folder, containing CurrentVersion.imovieevent file & Profect Name.rcproject folder, containing Movies folder Project file Proxies folder QuickLook That applies whether you have the old iMovie structure or the new one. If you have the new structure that ...

Via http://www.wondershare.com/imovie/stabilize-shaky-videos-in-imovie.html: Choose a video clip either from the Event browser or project. You can apply the Analyze for stabilization to the whole event or just to the video clips you want to apply. You can stabilize the video clips first, and then drag them to the project or stabilize the video clips in ...

Well, found the answer myself. The mistake was, that it's not enough to import the clip you want to edit, it needs to be included into an event. The procedure is therefor: Create "Create New", which is a container for the video to be uploaded. Import video into the container just created. Now the video can be edited with antishake. Hope the ...

I had the same problem and disabled the drivers in single user mode. However it seems that macosx still uses the external GPU if you do that in some low performance mode, instead of using the internal GPU. This solved my problem: http://www.asyncro.com/2014/03/24/macbook-pro-discreate-graphics-card-issue-fix-updated/ The key is to first let your macbook ...

VLC is where it's at. It features things like video streaming and much more. I use it all the time and I highly recommend it. It is cross platform as well.

I use Photo Transfer app http://www.phototransferapp.com to transfer photos and videos between my iDevices and my Mac, though I admit I haven't tried to transfer as large a file as you need to do. It supports lots of formats and preserves the metadata, too. It uses WiFi or Bluetooth.

If you like the movie trailer format but you want to customize the length of the clip segments, you can convert the special movie trailer project into a normal iMovie project by going to (File>Convert Trailer to Movie). Video Tutorial about this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lBbqgqgTVA Otherwise you need to edit your project manually. A trick to ...

Here's my workaround: right click on the 1/4-screen video and, if you're using Flash 15.0.0.xxx, you should see a Stretching is <type> item in the options list. Click on that and the video will fill the screen. Keep repeating until you get back to the 'Stretching is none' setting, unless you prefer something else. I have the same issue when using ...

You should try the following: If you have it, do try with iMovie. (Menu “File” -> “Import Media…”) Try AirDrop. You have to be on iOS 8 and Mac OS X Yosemite for AirDrop to work between an iPhone and a Mac though. If you can successfully make a backup of your iPhone using iTunes, I can walk you through the retrieving of the video from the iTunes backup. If ...

You might want to try iExplorer. Because it can directly access your iPhone as a disk device, iExplorer may be able to move the movie file to your Mac without any of the problems associated with other apps. iExplorer can also open and read iTunes backups, which may be another way to extract the movie. My wife inadvertently wiped her iPhone a few months ago, ...

Try a peer-to-peer file transfer service to move the video directly from your phone to computer, like BitTorrent Sync. This would be faster then using a cloud solution like uploading to Dropbox or YouTube and then downloading it again. It's very simple to use too, just download the BitTorrent Sync app on your phone and Mac, turn on the Camera Roll backup ...

I use Movist. It's a native video player that used to be free but is now sold at the App Store. Old versions can still be downloaded for free, but they use an old version of ffmpeg that doesn't even support Hi10P, and the application has changed a lot since then. Both Movist and MPlayerX have nicer UIs than VLC in my opinion, and they are also faster at ...

I use mplayer in its Cocoa form MplayerX like VLC it can't edit the video but just plays it. (There is a version in the Mac App Store but it is old as Apple does not now allow some of the functions the are needed (although I had no issues with it until I upgraded to Yosemite) To increase speed go to AVS->Increase Speed (or decrease) or ⌘] or ⌘[ I prefer ...

I use Pro Camera 8 for video recording. You can reduce the resolution of the video down to 640x480 and 30 FPS, which should result in significantly smaller videos than using the default Camera app. Pro Camera also has a zoom slider (which is disabled by default) that can do digital zoom up to 6x. Videos save to the Camera Roll and can be synced with your ...

This is what I do. I use the VLC player almost exclusively since it can play anything. Since you want to save space and eventually download to youtube I would recommend a 2 step process. First record it in high quality. Then use a small app called Flv Crunch to convert "any" file format to flv type that is enormous size reduction and compatible with ...

This answer will be short: VLC. Has everything you need except the rotation. It's a media player, not a video editor. To alter the playback speed in VLC: Go to to Playback → Playback Speed. You can also alter the playback speed using ⌘= and ⌘-. For rotation, as user Iwillnotexist Idonotexist notes in the comments below, you can go to Window -> Video ...

That might be caused by iOS video recording issue. Videos are always recorded in landscape, but the orientation of the phone during recording is saved in the movie, so iPhone and probably Apple software rotates the videos during playback, while they are rotated when playing them using any other software. Video converters usually has option to rotate movie ...

Apple makes a pro app for Mac, Compressor, that can handle this task, but might be overkill. It can handle batch jobs etc. There is also Roxio Toast which is a DVD burning utility but has a nice suite of tools for video conversion. You could use this to make DVDs or Blu Rays of all those vids and then get them off your system entirely. A Blu Ray burner is ...

The 2012 server is much more powerful than the gimped high end 2014 version and has beaten it in speed tests, too. You cannot install your own RAM in the 2014 model. You would see no difference in regard to playback between the two, a MacBook Air i5 could handle that task just as ably. Where you will see the difference is with conversion times and ...

This will be difficult with Automator but it is possible. You will need to augment your Automator workflow with Run Script steps involving some other scripting language. That language can be shell script, AppleScript, or another command line capable tool such as perl. Alternatively, you may find a third party tool like Hazel is able to help: Hazel ...

When you connect your phone to the ...

You can with Yosemite & iOS 8 Launch Quicktime player & select File > New Movie Recording [Cmd/opt/N] Click on the small downward-facing triangle next to the record button. This lets you select an alternate recording source, which now includes your iPhone or iPad.

It's kind of hacky, and probably not the best answer but works if you don't want to download any other tools and just use quicktime, and since I love hacks... Open video in Quicktime Select new screen recording from file menu Setup audio source to be built in input Select the area you want to record (instead of doing full screen) in the original video. ...

If you don't regularly sync with your phone with your computer, the easiest way might be to use the Dropbox app. I'm copying my answer from a previous question: The easiest way is to use Dropbox (you have Dropbox right?). Put the photo in your Dropbox, go to the same folder using the Dropbox app on your phone, click on the video, click the little share ...

Convert all footage to The Apple Intermediate Codec ( AIC )first before importing. Makes a big difference in rendering time. Use MPEG Streamclip to convert

I found a simple &fast way to get your Slow-Motion videos onto your computer. This method is also without applying an effect, but by simply adding a blank text. Use the iMovie in app editor, then click add text, get rid of the sample text and then save. The video is saved now and can be easily shared, however when transferring to the computer it is ...
