It can get more detail informations about these features at "KPlayer Support".

1. H.264 Hardware Acceleration
- It 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 - 720p/1080p/10.8.x, 1080p/10.9.x - requires more power of GPU. So, in case of 'NVIDIA GeForce 9400M' with these systems under these conditions, this feature works only at 'Native' mode.
- It requires M4V, MP4 or MOV types encoded in H.264/AAC or H.264/ALAC at 'Native' mode
- It requires the video track encoded in H.264 at 'FFmpeg' mode.
- It may not support the video track that was encoded in settings that the 'OS-based media playback feature' does not support.
- If it does not support this feature, playback and seeking may be not smooth according to the CPU of your Mac. (especially when plays the 1080p video file)

2. Sandbox
- If it opens not 'folders' but ‘video files' and these ‘files’ are NOT in the following folder or its subfolders; ‘F where' place in 'Preferences’,
- it should open the same-named subtitle files manually,
- and the feature that playlist is automatically made up of the similar-named video files doesn't work.

3. Playable Types
- ‘m2ts' files that are contained in 'BDMV' will be automatically added to the playlist when it opens the BDMV’s folder. (For example, if DSK/BDMV, please open the ‘DSK’ folder.)
- It doesn't support the playback of a protected video file.
- The video file with the video track encoded in 'YUV420P' pixel format can be played normally at any mode.
- ‘YUV420P 10-bit’, 'YUV444P 10-bit' pixel formats can be played only at 'FFmpeg' mode.

※ KPlayer uses some dynamic libraries of 'FFmpeg' licensed under the LGPLv2.1. It can get more informations at ''.
