Hi,

 

I'm trying to use Subtitle Edit 3.64 on mac (10.10 yosemite) using mono. It works, but I can't play any video because of mplayer missing.

I tried :

- copying mplayer.exe in SE root folder

- copying VLC.exe in a VLC subfolder under SE's root folder

but no result.

Also, the 'Video Engine' options are all greyed out. 

Any idea ?

 

Thanks

Can you post a screenshot and see what's wrong with your media player ?

I'm currently using SE on mac, and it's working fine.

You might try Parallels (I'm currently using this virtual desktop to run SE). And try to ask Nikse the optimize version of SE for Mac. Moreover, did you install some codecs ?

How would I install codecs on a mac ? Nope, I use Plex and sometimes VLC which is all I need.

Parrallers is really overshoot, mono should be sufficient. What's this mac optimised version ?

Could you tell me the following :

 

- what's your OS/X version ?

- Where did you put mplayer.exe / vlc files ?

- From which folder do you run SE ?

Thanks

First of all, I installed Parallels and grab a Windows 7 ISO image, to run Windows 7 on my mac. Therefore, I have been able to install codecs on Windows 7 (CCCP, etc).

I don't know much about mono, but Parallels does a great job. Nikse (Subtitle Edit' developer), change some définition and design for Mac users because we had issues with resolution and display.

I think I have the same version than you, Yosemite 10.10.3.

I didn't touch any media players, I just install VLC on my laptop.

From which folder ? I'm not sure what you wanna talk about but I just put my Subtitle Edit folder on my desktop and I run SE from there.

I see ! Basically my question was more towards the mono environment. I really don't want to go to the windows solution since I don't use it at all and that I even not own a license. 

Thanks anyway for your help.
