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.

  • Fixes several crashes that occur on macOS 10.12 and 10.11.
  • Fixes the disappearance of the Safari plugin.

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

Nice experience overall, but this player (resp. MPV) consumes remarkably more energy than VLC 3 in all scenarios I tried (I'm on macos 10.14.6). Not advisable if the battery life is important. Movist (paid) seems to be the most power-efficient. The interface of IINA is the cleanest. It's a pity you have to switch between players in different environments - but it seems to be the only way.

Nice interface. What I do not like: the list of videos is shown in the same window as the video running, thus hiding it partly. Big issue: version 1.0.6 has problems displaying some videos. Two examples: One is an old H264 MPEG4 AVC, 720x480, the other one H264 MPEG4 AVC 3840x2160: Video does not run smooth. Note: mpv v0.32 (downloaded) and v0.29.1 (installed from source via macports) show both vidos just fine. The same is true for VLC. @Devs: Can you please check

Very nice player. Does everything I want. I like the idea of seeing all the past videos by clicking on an icon. Very handy.

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)
