Download Internet Activated (IA) Version

Playback Pro Plus 3.7.2 and X use the same license code. For testing, we recommend you activate and release your license when you are going back and forth between 3.7.2 and X. You can also download the demo version (under the “License Free Testing” section on this page) to avoid having to manage your license while testing.

  1. Open your existing install of PlaybackPro Plus
  2. Go to the Application menu (to the left of the File Menu), select “Manage Licenses”
  3. Store the serial number. A DT Videolabs serial number will always be 4 sets of 8 digits with dashes in-between.
  4. Click on “Release License”. The system will report when the license has been successfully released and available to activate on another system.
  5. Download the PlaybackPro Plus X IA version from this page
  6. Launch PlaybackPro Plus X IA and activate it

Testing Recommendations

  • Hardware: A modern multi-core Intel or Apple Silicone (with Rosetta2 installed) Mac
  • MacOS: Catalina (10.15.7) or greater
  • Set MacOS Appearance to “Light mode” (Change in System Preferences > General > Appearance > Light Mode)
  • File Codec: h.265/HEVC, h.264, AppleProRes 422
  • File Container: .mov or .mp4
