What is Playr for Mac

Playr was made solely to focus on your video viewing experience. It's not crammed with extra features for organizing files or to make playlists and such. You don't need to install any extras or plug-ins to view your favorite movies, it just works.

Playr has been carefully developed using the latest available technologies with a meticulous attention to detail. Its user interface is clean, stylish, and simple to use. Hope you'll enjoy it!

  • Supports styling tags in subtitle files like italic, bold, and underline
  • Fully customizable subtitle display (font, size, color, shadows, etc.)
  • Convenient metadata inspector that automatically pulls info from the net... with links to IMDb
  • Detailed movie inspector for all those nitty-gritty details
  • Retina graphics user interface
  • Retina resolution subtitles on your Retina MacBook Pro
  • Fullscreen player built-in (of course)

Simply great: nice, essential interface, very reasonable price and best of all: immediate and effective support. I had problems with the subtitles of one of my files, contacted Bitfield, got an answer within minutes and a solution within a couple of hours. Quality both in the product and in the service. I made now Playr my default movie application.

great player and scrubs faster than all others out there, even the pro ones.. great UI.. i wish it could trim and export videos and take quick screenshots (with automatic scaling options for the screenshot and automatic saving to a folder).. won't give it a 5 star because it crashes a lot when scrubbing through video.. Please keep up the good work.

I just would like to see some keyboard shortcuts to Push / Pull Audio and Subtitles, and Back / Forward 10 secs, or 1 minute, as we have on “Movist” and “VLC". With that it would be perfect!

Just started using this... so far a very nice player. Only 1 complaint, it dose not remember the volume setting. Have to re-adjust it for every file I open.

Just signup to leave a request for Playr developer: 1. Is there any shortcut for seeking 10 sec using Left or Right keyboard? 2. If there are none, I would really welcome this feature in next update. :-)

Updated! I love this Beautiful Application! And with the gray icon back I love you more!

But there's one thing that's been bothering me a lot ... the Player does not work with the Apple Remote control just like VLC. I would like to see the Playr work with the Apple Remote. Thanks =)

This is currently my default player! It successfully replaced two old VCL and Movist players.

Simply Playr works! And it works very well! However, this purple icon I did not like! I think much more beautiful the previous icon was gray.
