Quickfire is a program designed for Mac that enables you to create and combine video playlists, watch movies, and much more. This application works with a wide variety of video formats, provides you with numerous playback settings, and brings you a comprehensive help manual that teaches you how to work with the app.

The utility isn't a video file manager or library. Quickfire is a simple yet efficient movie viewer that lets you play videos of various formats, bookmark certain frames from the clips, write notes, and much more. But the tool I wasn't expecting to see within this free program was the drawing utility which allows you to trace lines directly onto movies.

You can also work with this application to take snapshots of any frame while the input video is being played.

Another good aspect about this program is that you control the way it operates by using defined shortcut keys (you can find info regarding global hotkeys within the help manual).

To summarize, I'd say it's worth installing Quickfire on your Mac. This utility provides you with various playback features, lets you take snapshot of the videos you're playing, and comes without a price tag.
