MPlayer OSX Extended

Version 16

Multimedia player; extended version of MPlayer.

MPlayer OSX Extended overview

MPlayer OSX Extended is the future of MPlayer OSX. Leveraging the power of the MPlayer and FFmpeg open source projects, MPlayer OSX Extended aims to deliver a powerful, functional and no frills video player for OSX.

MPlayer OSX Extended is based on the original MPlayer OSX project but has since undergone fundamental changes, making it a modern and easy to use video player. Thanks to multithreading and 64bit architecture, MPlayer OSX Extended is one of the fastest choices on OSX to play back HD H264 videos. It also supports instant playback of MKV files and advanced styled subtitles in the ASS format. MPlayer OSX Extended uses the MPlayer open source project for decoding and integrates MPlayer's default key commands with a native OSX interface. Users of MPlayer should immediately feel at home and are able to tweak the fine details of the MPlayer invocation with binary bundles and additional command-line options.

Features:
  • Up-to-date builds of MPlayer and FFmpeg.
  • Clean and concise interface and preferences.
  • Support for MKV files with embedded fonts and ASS subtitles.
  • Multithreaded and 64bit-enabled for best playback performance.
  • Built-in support for a wide range of video and audio formats.
  • Fullscreen controls, playlist, inspector and interactive audio and video equalizers.
  • Capture screenshots of any video.
  • Automatic updates for itself and MPlayer binaries.

    The first thing I noticed when opening a video was that the picture and the sound were not synchronized. It took a whole minute after a person's lips had moved until I could hear what the movements were about.

    As far as I'm concerned, this is the best player out there for non-Quicktime video.

    Not sure why the date here says “16 July 2019” because Revision 16 dates back to 24 January 2018.

    So this has had no updates in 16 months as of March 2015? I the developer is monitoring these replies, then the developer should, hopefully, give a status.

    The other MPlayer of importance, MPlayerX, doesn't play back as nicely as MPlayer OSX Extended does as it's ridden with sync issues that the developer seems disinterested in fixing. But MPlayerX saves playback position in bookmarks, unlike both MPlayer OSX Extended and VLC, which is nice when you have a lot of videos to look trough. MPlayer OSX Extended also have much better DVD playback, also VIDEO_TS, compared to MPlayerX, but unlike VLC lacks ability to select episode on discs like TV-series, which is a let down. As VLC plays back all kinds of video as good as, or better than, MPlayer OSX Extended it's still my number one choice and MplayerX is the second (for material with lesser requirements). If VLC ever gets playback position bookmarks, then you won't need anything else. The Font Config Cache issue does detract form the expereince of using MPlayer OSX Extended. This time it took 5 minutes at first start up. None on the following.

    Only one big complaint. Every time I change a font in my OSX's fonts folder Mplayer OSX Ext. blocks at launch with this dumb message: "Fontconfig needs to update its font cache. This can take up to a couple of minutes." This is massively annoying. No other program does this: VLC, MPlayerX, Movist, QuickTimePlayer, RealPlayer ...

    Switched to this from MplayerX because I had it with skipping to prevent the text "chapter...." showing when subtitles were needed.

    If you haven't yet, scroll down and read some of the other posters. The download link on macupdate's webpage is full of bugs and does NOT run that well. But...not all hope is lost. https://sites.google.com/site/hermihg/ Hermi's fork of the mplayer app is exceptional and I use it over VLC now. Go to that site! It's the mplayer you've always been waiting for.

    Tried it out with a dvd and external sub file, thought I had it made on a great solution to watching dvds with no english subs. Worked great for the first half of the film, then no subs. So, it's half way there I guess.
