Mitti 2.5 released

Hi, there! We are happy to announce the newest update for Mitti - version 2.5 brings some exciting new features and improvements!

What's New?

Subtitle / Closed Caption rendering

Mitti 2.5 is now able to render sidecar .SRT and .SCC files, as well as Quicktime embedded CEA-608 caption tracks on outputs, as open caption. Whenever you add a video to the playlist, Mitti checks for embedded caption tracks and supported sidecar files.

For Mitti to be able to recognize a sidecar file, it's name should start as the same as the video. For example, both of these file names will be good if your video is "":

  • ""
  • ""

You can change the Font Size and Family in Preferences, as well as the default Font and Background colors.

Please note: both SRT subtitles and CEA-608 captions are allowed to set specific colors on a per-character basis!

You can toggle rendering of Subtitles / Closed Captions on each output in Mitti's Video Output Settings, and even on Preview from the View... menu.

Please note sending CC data thru SDI as VANC data when using Blackmagic Output is currently not supported.

Window Source

The new Window Source feature in Mitti v2.5 allows you to use a window of a running application as a Cue in your playlist - for example, Keynote.

Important: This features is only exists on macOS 10.12.3 Monterey and later.

Refactored Audio Engine

Mitti's audio engine has got lot of changes and optimization under the hood - there are no fancy new features here though, but the engine reacts faster and better for audio device change events.

Prevent Display Mirroring

While Mitti is open, this prevents Display Mirroring to take effect for displays set for video output in Mitti's Video Output Settings. This new option is available in Preferences / Misc.

HEVC with Alpha

Mitti now supports HEVC videos with an alpha channel.

ATEM Integration with Manual IP

Now you can connect to your ATEM Switcher by setting the IP manually. This function is also a helpful if Mitti cannot detect your switcher on the network for any reason.

Hyperdeck Emulation shows Ethernet IP

Mitti now displays the Ethernet IP - the first one if your computer has multiple - in Integration Preferences, make it easier to find what IP you need to use for connecting to Mitti as a Hyperdeck.

Panic with Load Next Cue

There is a new behaviour to use with Panic - with the Load Next Cue option Mitti can automatically load the next Cue after Panic called and processed.

Extend Mono with Options

Now it is possible to only extend mono channels only to stereo.

Support for file Aliases

Starting with Mitti 2.5, you can load Aliases to your playlist, make it easy to use files that frequently change their location.

Pause/Resume for Spacebar

The spacebar is now called pause/resume instead of play/pause which is more accurate. There are some OSC changes around this too:

/mitti/play is now /mitti/resume /mitti/togglePlay is now /mitti/togglePause Mitti still understands /mitti/play as well as /mitti/togglePlay so this won't affect existing OSC apps and Companion profiles.

Various UI/UX related changed

  • Added indicator for playback needs to be started on NDI cues to get incoming audio
  • Added buttons next to the In/Out time fields to set In/Out Times from the playhead
  • Added indicator of waveforms being processed
  • After setting a new Goto target for the first time, enable it automatically
  • Added warning if selected a Core Audio Blackmagic audio output instead if NDI & SDI
