Is it possible to preview video on an external player?

For example, if I import several videos and make some edit works to them. Can I make the edited video displayed directly on a external video player like QuickTime Player, rather than the FCP Preview window?

If I understand your question correctly, the answer is no. You cannot have FCP play through the QT Player. You would need to export the video file first, and then open it in QT Player.

The only way to have FCP play through anything other than its own windows is to use a converter card or box to output video to another monitor.

What is the point of doing that? What's wrong with the FCP Canvas? Are you looking to see what the colors will be in the player vs how it is in the app? Using QT as sort of a CLIENT MONITOR?

No, you can't...but that was answered here as well as PPro forum

The "External Player" I mentioned is very general, it could be the QuickTime player on the local machine or the Flash Media Player embedded on the browser of a remote client. It may not make sense to display edited result to external display if editing video locally on desktop, but it does when it comes to cloud editing and the edited result has to be delivered to the user's browser via Internet.
