Download MAGpie

Download and install MAGpie 2.5.1

MAGpie is a Java2 application which runs on Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7. It requires the installation of several applications, and it is critical that you install them in the order indicated below. Please note that MAGpie 2.5.1 removes support for the GRiNS player. If you are using GRiNS to caption RealMedia source files, do not replace your current version of MAGpie with version 2.5.1. (MAGpie 2.5.1 will still export SMIL files for the RealPlayer, however.) Windows Media clips cannot be used as source files except with MAGpie 1.0.

Windows 98/NT/2000/XP/Vista/7

NOTE FOR WINDOWS USERS: If the editor does not appear after the splash screen disappears, you must uninstall and reinstall QuickTime. Run MAGpie again and you will see the editor after the splash screen disappears.


MAGpie is a Java-based application which requires QuickTime Java in order to run properly. Unfortunately, Apple has deprecated the QuickTime Java interface and no longer provides support for it; therefore, MAGpie will no longer run on the Mac. We regret that at this time NCAM does not have the funding to create a new version of MAGpie which is compatible with the Mac OS. You can, however, use a virtual machine such as VMware Fusion, Parallels or Boot Camp to run Windows and MAGpie on your Mac.

MAGpie version 2.0.2 should still run on non-Intel or pre-Leopard Macs (not later than OS 10.4.x). You'll also need to install QuickTime version 6.x.
