What's new in Version 3.1
Switch 3.1 is a collection of bug fixes and format support improvements that should make Switch a more robust and useful playback tool. Switch now supports PAC, Lambda CAP, and Ruby Text from WebVTT subtitle sources. It also now supports the 'MJPG' variant of the Motion JPEG video codec, as well as being more tolerant of malformed 'udat' atoms in MOV and MP4 files.
Secondary SCC subtitle files can now be adjusted to play back synchronized with the media content, and an option has been added to the preferences to allow the user to decide how exhaustive the search for caption data will be. The performance of playback was dramatically improved when playing back content without captions, particularly when playing back content over the network.

Says it plays any format; doesn’t work on my MacBook Pro
It shows the display ‘Incorrect Format’ and refuses to play despite me getting this app for the purpose of using any format. I assume it works for others and am not calling it entirely uselss, just doesn’t work for my normal new Macbook Pro.
