Individual edition of Coach's Eye for players, not coaches

I am an individual tennis player. I want to be able to record my own strokes in Coach's Eye and then watch it later on my Windows computer screen to analyze it. I am not a coach and I do not make money by using it. Is there an option for Windows other than $120/ year?

The short answer is no in terms of literally purchasing Coach's Eye for Windows. However, based on your description of what you'd like to achieve, I think I can present a workflow that will suit your needs even better. I have a key question though: Do you really want to analyze and mark up the video on Windows, or would you be able to do the analysis on an Android or iOS Device, and VIEW the video on Windows? 

The typical workflow for this situation would be as follows: 
  1. Get Coach's Eye from the Google Play or Apple Store (around $5)
  2. Set up your mobile device to record your play. For tennis you probably will set it to as high frame rate as your device allows.
  3. Annotate on your mobile device.
  4. Share the video to Coach's Eye (Your Locker). 
  5. Now you can watch from any computer online--Windows, Mac, or mobile device. You can have a collection of your various strokes to refer to. In fact, on your mobile device you can even pull some videos in side-by-side so you can see your improvements. 
In summary, the bulk of the work is done on the iOS or Android device, and the viewing can be done in any browser.

Hey Mike
Actually that isn't ideal, but I found a way. So what I wanted was to drag the video back and forth on the slider bar to view my small moves with the raquet. That's why I wanted to do the analysis and the viewing of the raw video on the big Windows monitor. But I just discovered BlueStacks, the Android emulator for Windows. I tried it and works magically! So I installed Coach's Eye on the emulator on my PC. I capture my video and import it, and now I can use all the features with my mouse on the big monitor!
