When Uninstall Flip Player for Mac, What Should You Do?

uninstall Flip4Mac

I think you won’t be strange to Flip Player for Mac if you have installed on your computer, this is what the app is: Flip Player for Mac lets you play any files that QuickTime supports on your Mac without converting them through a separate program. With just a few clicks, you can be enjoying videos that would have been difficult or impossible to watch otherwise. But do you really know what to do when have to uninstall it from Mac? Have you done the right operations to remove it? Does it cause any trouble on your computer?

Use Trash to Uninstall

Generally speaking, when a Mac user start to uninstall something unwanted, he or she will use Trash to do in most case:

One way is to launch Finder, choose Application on the left panel, then locate the icon of Flip Player for Mac;
Drag it into Trash straightly or right click choose Move to Trash;

Other is to open Launchpad, find the target icon. Easily drag it into Trash or right click choose Move to Trash;
Right click Trash to choose Empty the Trash, and then reboot your Mac to confirm removal.

However, this is the beginning of whole removal, that what you had done is far away from finished.

Delete Remains on Hard Drive

In the steps mentioned above, you have just delete the icon of Flip Player for Mac, but its related components, files and folders stored in hard drive are still leaving in your computer. In that case, what you have to do is find them and delete all of them one by one, step by step: (Usually they will be stored in several folders on Library on your Mac)

  • ~/Library/Caches
  • ~/Library/Preferences
  • ~/Library/Application Support

So the next step is to open these folders to delete the remains:

  • Launch Finder, then go to the menu bar click GO
  • Select Go to folder…, and type “~/library/” in the box, hit Go
  • Library folder will pop up then
  • Search the files in the name of Flip Player for Mac in Application Support


  • Once it show up, right-click to delete it
  • Back to Library folder, repeat the same operation in Preferences and Caches
  • Same operation like above mentioned
  • Finally, right-click Trash, choose Empty the Trash to confirm your whole removal

Unfortunately, like I said, these folders are the normal storage location of an installed app on Mac. As a matter of fact, the associated files of Flip Player for Mac also found in:

  • ~/Library/Saved Application State
  • ~/Library/CashReporter
  • ~/Library/C

saved application state

This means you need to go to these folders to find hem and delete them all.


Be careful: miss any one of them means that you can’t completely uninstall Flip Player for Mac; while delete any one of them with wrong target means you’ll get into other trouble.
Seems there are risks and wasting time if using manual approach to remove Flip Player for Mac, if you are tired of this or you can’t finish all these steps like me, I suggest you use removal tool to help, for it will uninstall Flip Player for Mac and delete all of remains in just a few seconds by clicking couples of button. I think you’ll know what to do exactly after reading this helpful tutorial, hope you have a good time with today’s share.
