Mac OS X and Sportscode Compatibility

This tutorial is specific to our newest product, Hudl Sportscode. If you’re on Sportscode v11, use these resources instead or upgrade today.

Hudl Sportscode is supported on macOS 10.14 (Mojave), macOS 10.15 (Catalina) and macOS 11 (Big Sur).

macOS Big Sur

macOS 11.0 Big Sur was released in November 2020. Similar to Catalina, macOS Big Sur doesn't support 32-bit applications. As such, Sportscode version 11 will not run on Big Sur.

Before you update to Catalina or Big Sur, consider these things:

  • Sportscode V11 will not run on Catalina or Big Sur. If you intend to use both Hudl Sportscode and V11, we recommend running Mojave.
  • Blackmagic devices are not supported on Catalina or Big Sur. Our capture recommendations for Hudl Sportscode can be found here.

If you have any questions about upgrading to Catalina or Big Sur, or transitioning to Hudl Sportscode, contact our support team here or email us at

Why won't older versions be compatible?

Supporting old­er oper­at­ing sys­tems reduces our abil­i­ty to fix bugs and make enhance­ments to our prod­ucts. By sup­port­ing only the new­er ver­sions of macOS, it’s eas­i­er for us to quick­ly respond to issues and build new features.
