Professional Mac media player

CinePlay is a professional Mac video/audio player that comes complete with timecode overlays, markers/annotations, masking, safe areas, and cloud playback support. It is ideal for dailies, portfolios, client feedback, and mobile note-taking.




All timings are specified in timecode notation and CinePlay can read timecode stored in a movie file. You can even add a draggable timecode overlay to the movie.


Add markers during playback and export them to a range of common marker formats.


Draw directly over the video when adding a marker.

Safe Areas

View customizable 4:3 and 16:9 title and action-safe areas over your movie.


Sync two or more files together to compare shots side-by-side.

Cloud integration

Play cloud videos from Kollaborate, sync comments with your colleagues and even take part in live group note-taking sessions.  Use Synced Sessions to allow a colleague to control your playhead.

Timecode sync

Sync timecode to Cut Notes and other applications for easy note-taking.

Free for Kollaborate users

Easily collaborate with clients and team members with free Kollaborate cloud functionality.
