Unable to record videos with PlayON

Unable to record videos with PlayON, the recording process fails at random time points.


Insufficient number of CPU units assigned to Windows virtual machine.


PlayON application requires quite a lot of Mac's CPU resources, please configure the virtual machine using the following recommendations:

  1. Shut down Windows (Actions > Shut Down).
  2. Open the virtual machine's configuration > Hardware > CPU & Memory > set Processors' number to at least 4.
    NOTE: If the maximum available number of CPUs in the configuration is only 2, your Mac's hardware is underpowered for using PlayON.

 If assigning 4 processors to Windows did not help and PlayON recording still fails, in Hardware tab find Network > set Source to Bridged Network (Default Adapter).
