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 Mbox® media server software and benefits from more than 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, single layer playback, and a single output without the complexity of a typical media server. 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 standard concept of Preview and Program buses to provide both a look ahead preview and feedback of the computer’s current video output.

Mbox Player can be licensed using either a USB license key or a soft-license. If you would like to purchase a USB license key for Mbox Player, please contact your local PRG office. If you would like to purchase a soft-license, please use the purchase button below.. 

The latest Mbox Player software is compatible with macOS versions from 10.10 Yosemite to 12 Monterey, and with both Intel and Apple Silicon processor computers. While the software is not yet native to Apple Silicon processors, a universal version is in development. (Note: Older versions of the Mbox Player software are not compatible with newer versions of macOS or with Apple Silicon processor computers.)

Purchase Mbox Player

Purchases made by clicking the button above are for an Mbox Player soft-license with limitations on the number of installations, and not for a USB license key.  If you would prefer a USB license key that can be moved to any computer, please contact your local PRG office.

*As of July 1, 2019, the original "EWS" soft-license for Mbox Player is no longer available for purchase (existing licenses will continue to work).  A replacement soft-licensing system, "QLM", has been implemented in the Mbox Player v1.2 release and will be the only soft-licensing system available for new purchases from July 12, 2019 forwards.  Please see the note below in regard to the limitations of the soft-license.

**The Mbox Player soft-license allows the software license to be activated on only one computer, which limits use of the software to only one computer at a time.  The license allows for unlimited deactivations and reactivations.  EWS Purchase Terms & Conditions  ShareIt Purchase Terms & Conditions
