MPlayerX overview

MPlayerX is an alternative media player powered by ffmpeg and mplayer. MPlayer OS X ran OK, but it was slow. And also, the new technologies from Apple prevailed--such as Core Animation, Grand-Central Dispatch, even OpenCL--and pushed me to give them a try.

So I started without even knowing how to program under Mac, came to know Xcode, Objective-C 2.0, Cocoa, and the Core family. MPlayerX is still in such a primary stage, I will keep on enhancing it, and figure out how to do this and that.

Now it can do:
  • Multi-screen full-screen support
  • Apple Remote support
  • Multi-Touch support
  • Automatically find the next proper file to play
  • Auto-detect the encode method of subtitle file (with Universal Charset Detector)
  • Take a snapshot
  • Multi-threaded ffmpeg support
  • Change subtitle size while playing(except VOBSub)
  • Remember last played time and resume playing

No updates on this version since 2016, AppStore updates is from 8 years ago. Used this app but stay away now. Often it crashes and are moved to trash, other times you only get audio. VLC is now my media player.

It works in that it plays the glitchy MKV file that VLC player was failing to play. However, I will be removing it as soon as I am done watching the series I downloaded in MKV format. The install had 4 different sneaky extra things that wanted to be added (Yahoo everything, Opera browser, and a couple other things) and it changed its formatting each time for how you deny these installs, so if you were not paying attention you would end up with these extra programs. It also DID NOT ASK to install Mac Defender which immediately started giving me popups to scan my Mac. Not discrete at all. I force-quit that and removed it in Applications. I would not be surprised if, as reported in other reviews, this entire program is Malware. However, it DOES function as a simple and lite media player that doesn't have the MKV glitch in Mavericks that VLC Player has. So I am not giving it 0 stars. It does do the thing it set out to do, but beware of extra programs coming along for the ride.

I've been using mplayerx for years with no problems. It's a light and user friendly media player that plays many files. I hope development is still ongoing.

The installer now installs various unrelated apps, do not use this! Also MPlayer spawns background processes that eat all CPU. What a shame this used to be the coolest video player on the Mac.

MacUpdate needs to REMOVE this malware NOW. It's now a well-known piece of malware. Look it up in any search engine.

Still infected in the new update. Deleted with AppCleaner. See info here https://blog.malwarebytes.com/threat-analysis/2016/09/pup-friday-mplayerx/

Can't play more than first title on DVDs. Audio often out of sync on stellar hardware. Good riddance!

I had been using MPlayerX for years and never really liked it. It always took a full minute to open even the smallest video file. It often froze on larger files. But when I found that the latest version from the developer at codeplex, the same version offered on this site (which has now been replaced by the safe version from sourceforge), contained 16 out of 45 malware positives at Virustotal, that was it. I looked for and found a much better alternative called 'mpv', which is based on 'mplayer', but has many more features. It loads immediately, unlike MPlayerX, which takes at least a minute to load a video. It handles playlists, or you can select a bunch of videos and open them all, like a playlist, with 'CMD-o'. It has many more features than command-line 'mplayer', and is an app, so you can open files from Finder in it. It is highly configurable if you don't mind reading the docs and editing a config file. After experiencing 'mpv' I will never go back to MPlayerX.

The player itself is great, I like the UI, I like the keyboard controls, etc. However, as a result of the disgusting installer which quite literally tries to install malware on your Mac I simply can't in good conscious use the player anymore. I have switched back to VLC, even though I don't like it as much. Perhaps if enough people express there disdain the developer will comes to his (her?) senses and remove the crap from the installer.

This player makes me fall in love. Now I play all kinds of media files and videos without converting them first, thanks to MPlayer.

The installer download of the Web of the developer tries to install malware. In order to install " a clean " version it is necessary to go to MU. But, she is really clean? I do not entrust myself. MalwareBytes asks to me to erase it. I will do and it.

Malwarebytes detected mPlayerX (https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/33261/mplayerx) as a malware. And there is no explanation. What is wrong with it?
