Modern video player.

Overview

IINA is the modern video player for macOS.

Features
  • For and only for modern macOS - IINA is born to be a modern macOS application, from its framework to its user interface. It adopts the post-Yosemite design language, and keeps up the pace of new technologies such as Force Touch and Touch Bar.
  • Revolutionary user experience - IINA simplifies a lot of user interactions. In addition to traditional cascaded menus, it provides interactive UI components and gestures to give you intuitive, flexible, powerful control of the playback.
  • Powerful functionality - Based on MPV, one of the most powerful media player projects ever, IINA supports almost all common media types (even GIF) and stably outputs high-quality video that is optimized for Retina screen. MPV's config file and script system are also integrated.
  • You are the target-user - IINA is made by a user like you, who (may be) also having been expected for a powerful and elegant media player on macOS for years. Whether you just got your first Mac or are already a professional MPV user, IINA will satisfy you for its customizability and expandability.

The is the only media player you really need. It plays literally anything. And it is based on mpv, which is actively developed.

I'm just discovering this surprisingly good player, indeed a nice replacement for VLC — which version 3 has not yet got rid of its important bugs... (more than one year after v3.0!) I'd say its a really nice mix between VLC and Movist: you can set in real time the delays for audio and subtitles (like Movist) while the interface is sober as VLC and it's free and open source. It has all it needs to become the best player and I would have given it 5 stars if it didn't fail reading subtitles in a .ts recorded tv stream. My other trials were perfect.

After a few more trials, some limitations of IINA appear.
- It wasn't able to work out my real-time tv streams.
- there's no advanced settings like in VLC for fine cropping (for example, cropping a few lines on the top) — I only know of VLC that can do this!
etc.
So ok, it's a nice player in many cases, it was even able to read a file that VLC doesn't, but in the end, it's the same old story: you've got to have a bunch of players around and if one doesn't work in a particular case, try another one.

Good so far; not enough use of it to really leave a review. It's handling of .dvdmedia files is a little rough (if you can access the DVD's menu, I can't figure it out) but it does play without a hiccup (VLC crashes constantly for me under Mojave, regardless of uninstall/reinstallation attempts) and can display CC/Subtitles (critical for me). I'll keep using and hope DVD menu support is forthcoming. (Or I find it)

Thought I would leave a few comments on my experience with IINA as a VLC replacement for me. First off, I've used VLC for quite a few years, however it's always felt a bit quirky and a bit unstable. Second: I do realize the VLC does other functions besides a player, however with this said, I've never personally used the app for other things then a media player, so my comparisons won't include those features. I started using IINA around the time VLC 3.0 was released due to playback issues I was having with VLC, such as the A-B loop not always working correctly in VLC, features like variable speed control in playback also doesn't work reliably in VLC 3x. Other things I've compared, are Videos with strange resolutions, now act jerky in VLC 3x. With the above listed, I have found IINA is quick to load video files, plays what I throw at it very smoothly, and without graphical glitches, the A-B loop is much more reliable. Videos with unusual resolutions don't jump around, or flicker. I also feel comparing the two, that IINA, has a better macOS native interface vs VLC, and a cleaner, more optimized and up-to-date UI. I have a few media players installed on my Macs, as none are perfect, and it helps to have more then one installed in case one might not work as expected, or another one has a feature, one might now have. My other Media players I have installed are: El Media Player (pro version) Blu-ray Player (Pro Version) from MacGo. As far as the Blu-ray player, it's a good solid player that gives commercial grade support for playing back commercial Blu-ray discs as you would in a hardware stand alone player. As far as the features people have commented on here regarding VLC being more then a media player when comparing IINA to a replacement. That i'm not going to disagree with as I know it's true. What I will say though, is for my own use, I have not used VLC for those functions, and probably never will. I have always used dedicated apps for Video conversion, and recording. ScreenFlow is my main recording app, and FF Works, or permute are my main conversion apps, I do own the Apple pro apps as well. With all the things I've listed above, here is what I feel a good verdict is: If you simply use VLC as a player, and nothing else. IINA is a great replacement. If you use the other features it offers, I can't really make a fair comparison here. I would recommend comparing VLC to a dedicated app that handles the functions desired for use. In the end, I think IINA is a very nice solid player all around. I've had no issues with it, and it has some nice bonus features like a command-line tool, that can be configured, and a browser plugin for both Firefox, and Chrome. Safari support was removed when Apple's plugin requirements changed.

Safari support is now bundled within the app as a Safari App Extension. You can enable it inside preferences of Safari directly.

After using VLC for a decade and experimenting with mplayer, movist and others. This is the one to get. It gets subtitles automatically for any video. Finally feel like living in the future.
