Flip4Mac Player was available for free. Why is Telestream charging for it now?
Telestream developed the Flip4Mac Windows Media Components to allow Mac users to seamlessly play Microsoft Windows Media content in QuickTime and through their web browsers.
Until recently Microsoft provided the Flip4Mac Player to users for free. As of May 1, 2014, Microsoft has discontinued this free distribution. Telestream will continue to make Flip4Mac Player available, however, a fee will be charged.
For playback of Windows media, you can purchase Flip4Mac Player for only $9.99
