Frequently Asked Questions

What are the system requirements for iFlicks?

iFlicks is made for Mac OS X 10.3 or later.

What video formats are supported by iFlicks?

iFlicks is powered by the QuickTime framework built-in to Mac OS X. As such, iFlicks inherits QuickTime's support for a wide range of standard formats, including MPEG-1, MPEG-4, H.264, and dozens of others. QuickTime components provided by third parties expand QuickTime's codec support, allowing additional video formats to be played.

Additionally, iFlicks allows you to organize non-native formats including Windows Media and RealVideo. Videos in these formats can be played in external players installed on your system, including Windows Media Player and RealPlayer.

What are the limitations of the trial version?

While in trial mode, the iFlicks Library will be limited to a total of five movies. When launching the application, you will occasionally be reminded to register. Once registered, the full functionality of iFlicks will be unlocked.
