※ KPlayer uses some dynamic libraries of 'FFmpeg' licensed under the LGPLv2.1. You can get more informations at 'http://ffmpeg.org'.
1. 'H.264 Hardware Acceleration' feature requires GPU (NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, GeForce 320M, GeForce GT 330M, ATI HD Radeon GFX, Intel HD Graphics and others)
(It seems that Mac OS X System, 10.7.5 or later, requires more power of GPU. So, in case of 'NVIDIA GeForce 9400M', this feature only works with QuickTime mode.)
And requires M4V, MP4 or MOV types (encoded in H.264/AAC or H.264/ALAC) on 'QuickTime' mode, requires a video track (encoded in H.264) on 'FFmpeg' mode.
The video track that was encoded in settings that QuickTime does not support may be not supported.
If it does not support 'H.264 Hardware Acceleration', playback and seeking may be not smooth according to the CPU of your Mac (especially when play the 1080p video file).
2. Sandbox: If you open video 'files' (not 'folders') that are not exist in the following folder and its subfolders (~/Downloads, ~/Movies),
you should manually open same named subtitles files, and it doesn't support the feature that it opens similar named subtitles files, and the feature that playlist is automatically made up of similar named video files doesn't work.
3. To open the OPTIONAL Types (MKV, AVI, FLV) on 'QuickTime' mode, it requires 'Perian' (v1.2.3/QuickTime® Component). You can download 'Perian' at 'http://www.perian.org' (free).
It is recommended that play MKV files on 'FFmpeg' mode.
'm2ts' files that are contained in 'BDMV' will be automatically added to the playlist when you open the 'BDMV' included folder.
Only the video file with a video track (encoded in 'YUV420P' pixel format) is played normally. ('YUV420P 10-bit' pixel format is played only on FFmpeg mode.)
• Fixed bugs related to the playlist.
• Fixed bugs related to the video file that has the abnormal information about the running time.
