macOS - Codecs Location

The Apple Pro Video Formats codecs, required for proper broadcast recording, are located in the directory shown below. If you do not see any codecs listed on the Apple machine running the Just In Mac Lite application, then this macOS machine has no Apple Pro Video Formats codecs installed:

/Library/Video/Professional\ Video\ Workflow\ Plug-Ins/

Video Codec Acquisition

Due to licensing restrictions, we are not allowed to ship any Apple Pro Video codecs along with our products. But you can download and install the required codecs here: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL2100?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_GB

Hardware-accelerated H.264, HEVC (H.265), ProRes recording

Please be aware that the macOS Media Engine/hardware acceleration works only when working with progressive (pXX) video modes. When recording in interlaced mode (iXX), the Just In Mac Lite application falls back to the available CPU cores for the encoding process.

The macOS Media Engine works best for ProRes (Proxy, LT, SQ and HQ) encoding (progressive video modes).
