IINA 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.

A great player, and very competitive with VLC, but I haven't discovered a way to synchronize, play and scrub through two videos at the same time using a single set of controls, (a feature i wish I had for the purposes of editing subtitles in video projects). I'd happily drop a few dollars for the feature if the developers could figure out how to accomplish this,

IINA is getting closer to fully replace VLC! Only big issue I've found: It simply doesn't see embedded subtitles in TV streams or .ts recordings. A little difference in how the playlists work, too: I'm used to have my list in a separate window in VLC, which is not possible here. I haven't tested every other feature yet, but it's great to see IINA improving.

VLC started giving me issues so I tried a few others. IINA is the best. It opens everything and just works. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS!

I wonder who is the shmuck that gives irrelevant thumbs down to most of the comments here. (I'll probably get one, I bet... :-D) IINA has become my favourite player, it covers most of my needs. Nevertheless, I regret the complexity of video filters settings (like cropping or sharpening, etc.) that you have to create — compared to VLC, where you can try them in real time. Anyway, it's getting better and better and has become one of the best players, even compared with payware.
