Jaksta Video Recorder 1.5.1 and Mac OS 10.13.3

Asked by Peter Tam @ 20 May 2018 22:05 / Views: 39


I have upgraded my Mac to OS 10.13.3.  When I open Jaksta Video Recorder 1.5.1, it seems to open successfully but when it detects a video, it quits with a dialogue box saying "Jaksta quits unexpectedly".  I have tried re-installing Jaksta but no use.  What can I do to resolve this problem?  Many thanks!

Hi Peter,

It is most likely experiencing a conflict with the Mac OS, as we never built any support into any of the Version 1 builds for High Sierra before we stopped development on it.

If a full reinstall is not helping, then there are really only two options. Downgrade the Mac OS to a compatible version or upgrade Jaksta to Version 2.

If you have not yet tried a full reinstall then use the following instructions:

Delete the app (uninstall) from Applications instead of just reinstalling over it. Then in Finder go to the top menu and then access Go > (holding one of shift/alt/control/command) Library > Application Support > Jaksta Media Recorder and delete that folder (NOTE: doing this will erase your library file list in Jaksta, but your downloaded/converted files will remain intact in their destination folders). Reboot the Mac and then do a reinstall of the latest version ( and it will generate a new copy of the deleted folder and the application files. 

Please let me know if you need any help or more information on upgrading to Version 2.
