Suggestion - Adobe Video player app
You guys should make a cross-platform video playback app and bundle it with Creative Cloud.
VLC is annoying and looks cheap, and there's no way to play frame by frame. and a lot of motion desigers now use windows.
Your app could be a bit like 'acrobat for video' - plays video files and maybe also allows for annotation and feedback to clients.
It should be smooth, and allow for things like 'playblasting' - frame by frame scrolling with key commands. Maybe a lot of the functionality of QuickTime player, but with a few extras.
I find I have to open premiere if I want to d=break down my work and analyse other things.
