Mbox Player is a media playback application created with the ideas of simple setup, quick programming, and streamlined playback control. Player is based on the technology found in PRG's existing line of Mbox media server software. Because of this, Player benefits from 10+ years of media playback expertise and a commitment to ease-of-use and reliability.


Mbox Player offers video professionals a simple, fast, and reliable platform for the delivery of typical 16:9 video with built-in looping and crossfading. It is the perfect choice for the video professional looking to provide linear cueing and single-layer playback control without the complexity of a typical media server.


Mbox Player is designed for the playback and output of individual video and still image clips with the ability to apply a variable crossfade or delay between each item. Player’s interface uses the industry-standard concept of Preview and Program buses to provide both a look ahead view in the Preview bus, and when loaded into the Program bus, clips are output from the computer’s show output.


Mbox Player can be used on any Apple® Mac® computer with an Intel 64-bit processor, running macOS 10.10 Yosemite through 10.15 Catalina. (Note: Versions of Mbox Player prior to v1.1 are not compatible with Mojave or  Catalina.)  For evaluation purposes, the Mbox Player software will run in demo mode with only minor limitations until a license is purchased.  We always recommend testing the software on your computer prior to purchasing, as hardware setup can have an impact on performance.
