Movist overview

Movist is a movie player based on QuickTime and FFmpeg.

Beautiful and Convenient User Interface

The controllers are practical and convenient, as well as appearing only when the mouse pointer is approaching. Transparent title-bar and controllers allow you to focus more on your watching experience.

The main menu displays various states in real time, and the control panel gives you quick access to all the functions you need. Move the mouse over the seek-slider to see the thumbnails.

In addition to all these conveniences, we have added beauty. It supports modern style of macOS including light and dark themes.

When you open a media

There are many default preferences to apply when you open a media.

You can specify the default track language. For example, video and audio in Korean, subtitles in English, or you can set not to display subtitles if there's an English audio track.

You can specify your preferred video quality, filters, equalizer, etc. You can also restore the last time you played it to watch from there.

Multiple tracks simultaneously

You can view subtitles in multiple languages at the same time. You can also set the different location and style for each languages.

You can also select multiple tracks simultaneously for video and audio. For example, if the front and rear videos of the car black box are contained in one file, you can see the front and back videos at the same time.

  • Supports QuickTime and FFmpeg
  • Customizable high quality caption
  • Supports smi, srt format captions

It's very much worth the expense. You will never need another media player!

A pre-purchase email to their customer service yielded no response at all. For me anyway, that's enough to not bother with this software.

A modern media player with no airplay functionality is a NO-NO to me!

this application is the best media player for Mac seriously , it works out of the box with the ability to handle almost all video formats like magic , high quality playlist with extensive subtitle support with all movies , tv shows and videos also the pro version is awesome as i can watch the videos included in the web page with Movist. Just click the button on the Safari toolbar. (Safari extension is provided.) and play videos right away without downloading from Network Servers. Supports SMB, SFTP, FTP, WebDAV (including HTTPS). Because Movist Pro handles buffering automatically and with air play that will come with future update this application will be the all in one for me to use on my Mac , very handy and powerful . it deserves more than 5 stars .
