It is intended for multi-screen video walls, multichannel art installations, and the like...Looping is available, and all settings are automatically saved for unattended startup..."

That looks pretty slick. Does it work well? Any field-testing on stability?

No. I'm on PC myself and use paid-ware, but thought others might be interested in a Mac-based freeware. You could try writing to the programmer/owner of multi-screener.

I would like to play 19 unique synced QT sources. Will this software allow that? How many clients will be needed? I would like to play QT with window size 720x404, and was thinking of putting 3 per 30" cinema display +- 6 monitors.

Input appreciated.

Your best bet is to ask the owner/programmer of Multiscreener.

That said, generally, the requirement is one client per source/per monitor mainly because each is a fullscreen display. Then there is the additional requirement of a Master controlling and keeping all the display clients in sync.

Your desire of putting 3 per 30" monitor implies windowing or Picture-in-picture from one client, which most software can do, other things being equal (i.e. the hardware is capable of playing 3 layers of full res videos simultaneously without hiccups).
