The best ever media player for Mac , very convenient and powerful application that handle almost every video or audio formate with a ton of features like fully customizable appearance for video brightness and contrast , audio equalizer, a-b loop , extensive support for subtitles , take screenshots from videos and create playlist and watch online videos , I replaced my QuickTime player in the dock with it and very happy with the application. It deserves more than 5 stars seriously.

All I wanted was to play audio books and the app isn't good at this . There's no bookmark facility (there is for video) so I frequently lost my place if I closed the wrong window. Opening a playlist window placed me at the first item, even though my book chapters were. far down the list. Often a large, mostly black window occupied a good chunk of the screen. On certain window-opening/closings the app produced a screech like the scratching of a vinyl record. Images flashed and then disappeared. I did like the hot-key controls for playback. .

*Trojan Infection* October 19th, ESET discovered that the direct download version of Elmedia Player was infected with Proton RAT malware. Eltima removed and replaced the infected software later that day. It's unclear exactly when the infected version was hacked onto their servers. This is extremely dangerous malware that must be addressed by victims immediately! Please read the following for details: OSX/Proton spreading again through supply-chain attack https://www.welivesecurity.com/2017/10/20/osx-proton-supply-chain-attack-elmedia/

Elmedia Player is the first software to be installed in Mac: This software allows to play several versions, extensions and formats of audio and video (FLV, SWF, MP4, AVI, MOV, MP4, DAT, MP3 ...). the reading is done quickly without any break. and like most Eltima software, the Elmedia Player does not require much performance from your Macbook so it works. Elmedia Player is compatible with all other Apple devices - AppleTV support with tvOS 10.2 when streaming via AirPlay. In my experience I give Elmedia Player 5 stars

I have this, I use it sometimes, but I often just launch VLC reflexively because I'm used to it. Are there any advantages to Elmedia Player over VLC?

The latest version of elmedia player pro on Mac OS 10.11.6 does not display Flash videos. It behaves as if it has no flash, on the page "install the flash plugin". If I reinstall version 6.5.1 I view all.

Bought this app specifically to stream audio of downloaded, unprotected movies I watch on the Mac to powered speakers connected to an Airport Express.

Apps claims to stream Airplay audio: "Stream audio and video contents with the help of Elmedia on iOS AirPlay devices like iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple TV to Mac, or from Mac to Apple TV and other AirPlay devices."

I've been using VLC to stream the audio but it's fiddly because Airplay has a lag in it and you need to go deep into the settings when playing a video to tweak the video delay to match the audio. I figured this app would make the problem go away. Nope!

Every other app I own recognized the Airplay speakers, but when I use Elmedia Player it says it can't find any Airplay device.

Otherwise the app seems to work as promised, but I've got other apps that can do what it does.

nice. It's only missing trim and export. Setting in and out and exporting that segment. That would make it the best and a real quicktime pro replacement. It has good scrubbing speed, making it useful for pros looking for something in the video.

Not bad, but some base features (screenshot, preferred subtitle lang, external audio) are PRO only.
It's interesting that Elmedia Player looks VERY similar to mplayerx (which became unusable). And even have the same seeking bugs…

Elmedia Player is a nice player of choice. It offers easily-navigated interface, high-resolution videos playback and many options to enhance it.

It would be very important to stream subtitles to airplay too, like Beamer does. I cannot do that with Elmedia Pro, unfortunately. Are you planning to do that? Thanks.

Anyone having problems getting the Airplay to work on Elmedia Player Pro? I upgraded and for the life of me can't get Elmedia Pro to play on my AppleTV, even when I select it. It looks like it is trying to send the video to my AppleTV but the screen ALWAYS goes black and I get the spinning cog.To be honest the AppleTV support was the reason I upgraded and now I am disappointed.

Version 6.5 stuck at checking available font when the app start on El Capitan 10.11.4. Elmedia Player just freeze at the checking available go nowhere, and cannot be closed. Only force quit is the option, the app is totally useless junk now,. Not to count very annoying activation problem every time I tried new OS or restore my Mac from Time Machine backup, I have to write email to ask the dev for extension of activation, so bad and so disappointed. Same goes forr activation for another app from thesis dev called Airy. If you want easier life do not buy this app. I am so regret to buy lifetime upgrade and have yo beg for activation when I reinstall OS or restore from Time Machine

Elmedia Player is a good piece of software for those who need a simple and comprehensible alternative to other popular media players. I've been using it for a couple of days now and so far I haven't seen any freezes or crashes. Pros: - Decent player supporting most popular media formats. - Nice design - Embedded browser Cons: - Some features are available only in the Pro version. Botton line: Worth using on everyday basis.

My goto player for videos with weird extensions that other players on mac do not seem to play properly (wmv, mkv, etc.) You should add it to your repertoire.

Overall, I've had a positive experience with this company My main product I use from them is "Airy" a downloader for youtube that can download just about any video and resolution which a lot of free solutions lack at, especially higher resolutions. I upgraded to elmedia player 6 without any issues, was able to provide my former key and got a discount with no issue. I wanted to make a note that I really don't use elmedia player as a media player, mainly as a backup media downloader if one of my main programs has issues. On reason I don't use this app for a media player is, it doesn't seem to have an A-B repeat function like VLC and MplayerX do. It's a small feature but can be really nice at times. The only negative I've had is with the personal license appeartly the way they bind the license key is not to the computer's MAC address or email, but os install ID. Typically a persona license entails that the software can be used on one computer at a time. Which in my situation I would be fully within the license terms for. However, if I have to reinstall the OS, or want to test things in a different version of the OS on the same hardware, my license for elmedia software treats it like it's a different computer when in fact it's not, it's the same physical computer with a different install. The other thing is if this is the way they want to do the license there is no deactivate option in the software , instead I have to update information from the website, and there are only a certain amount of times before you have to email support to reset it. I would like to suggest if being able to pirate license sis a concern, an alternative would be tying all keys to the machine serial number. this will get around the issue i'm having , but also prevent a licensed key from being pirated to another mac as you need special tools to change the serial key that are tightly controlled by apple, which most people don't have. Overall I'm pleased with the products and support I've received just wanted to throw out some suggestions to help the experience. :)

It's my default player for about year. Couple times tried to test similar softs but I wasn't impressed enough. For me Elmedia is a great solution simply cause it plays every random format and works without bugs.

I wouldn’t touch anything from this developer with a 10 foot pole. Past experience with the company combined with the obviously astroturfed reviews and recommendations scream avoid at all cost. VLC, MPlayerX, Kodi, and Plex, among others, are are better alternatives.

It's a very good media player, but is it possible to play two different screens at the same time? If i try to open another file, it just replaces the existing window. Maybe, pro has this feature. Thanks for reading my review!

For me it is quite complicated. It has too many options I don't even need. So, I would like to get something more simple.... I like the app as a tool, but I use it not very often. I don't need the whole of this. I put 4 star because hadn't find any bugs.

All of these reviews that are 5 stars are fake. And if you look at some of these people's review history, they ONLY review Eltima products. You would think that someone would be clever enough to throw in a 4-star review to make it not look so fake, but they don't. They're just trolling for a shady company that I won't deal with anymore. Sadly, I've purchased 5 of their products in the past, and have had the misfortunes of having to deal with their tech support, which was rude and condescending when I questioned them on they're ridiculous copy-protection schemes. And for software that's mediocre at best.

Today I launched Elmedia Pro and noticed, that Elmedia has released now Version 6. Great!
But the big surprise... They want money again for that upgrade. In a regular way, this would be ok, but it's now the third time in 2 years, that they want money from me for a new version.

I bought Version 3 in March 2014, than I pay the upgrade in March 15 and now we have Aug. 2015 and I need to pay again after only 5 month's? Only customers who bought it on 27. Aug. (2015??????) get a free upgrade.

Sorry guys, that's stupid. I trust them in the past, but I know companies like this from the past like Aquafadas (Pulpmotion) or Metakine (DVDRemaster). They also take money again and again around each year and promised some amazing new features and then they drop the support from one to another day.

Oh, and just as a tip... Never.... NEVER bought this software for the full price. I noticed also, that they often drop the price rapidly. After I bought the last upgrade for around 10$ they sold it for 5$ for all interested customers. Near the same I noticed around Folx, a Download-Manager for Mac from this company.

It's sad to say that around this Software, because it's a good and simple one to download really easy videos from the web.

Well... The end of this story... Pls. don't support this company. Spend your money better to small developers, who have more heart around developing. For example... Try Videobox from http://www.tastyapps.com. I have this since 2012. The three dev's deliver all updates for free since I bought it.

I've used various media players and for my usage requirements the Pro version of Elmedia Player is great. I mostly use the browser view to download media (video, audio and images mostly) from websites and the functionality is second to none.

Probably the best video player ever. The Pro version is not just a player but has a lot of cool features, like the possibility of downloading videos from YouTube. Strongly suggested. Dario
