IINA

Version 1.2.0

Modern video player.

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.

Just recently, I found out about the IINA. When I play videos, it conceals the cursor all the time, which the VLC was unable to do, so this player is a welcome replacement for it, as long as it comes to playing videos. The VLC is still the best player for radio livestreams IMHO.

Unfortunately, this player has stopped being updated. In Big Sur, the player works very badly, constantly reports an error and quits. When you restart the player, it works, but many functions do not work correctly. And so it is constantly. It looks like the brilliant project IINA has passed its thriving and is now dying out. This is the case with all successful projects: development, thriving and extinction. This is because there are many envious, dark forces in the world that cannot calmly look at those who know how to do cool things.

I have used it for a long time without any problem. Today my antivirus tells me that it contains the Adload.gen virus. And the same goes for the different versions that I have tried again to download, including the latest beta. Does it really contain a virus or is it a false positive?

I'm a long time VLC user, and although it was great at one time, I'm finding IINA much better, and easier to use

You can have different keybindings, great, but I can't figure out how to select them! The wiki says "You can choose the active configuration from the menu (?)" Does anybody know where is that menu? Or is it an oversight?

I had some poorly timed sound issues with an early release and angrily wrote this app off to stick with VLC. But as frustrations with VLC mounted—especially the inability to have more than one video open at a time, I checked back in to find that this app has come along beautifully. It's my new default and I highly recommend it. In fact, I'd happily pay a flat sum for it... just please no subscriptions, never ever do that to us dear super awesome developers, I beg you.

Years back I was in love with the abandoned NicePlayer, and I had a hard time finding a replacement player that did everything that very simple player did. IINA does, and it's just a great app besides. I tried at least a dozen player apps, and this one was the clear winner.

This version gives me the opportunity to test it again, and to discover a great function: browsers integration. Works very well even on other sites than Youtube. Still doesn't play my TV streams, though (rtsp addresses make it crash), otherwise I'd probably use it instead of VLC.

Great app...! For whatever reason VLC (both v2 and v3) “developed” consistent poor sync issues between video and audio on my computers (OS 10.11 - 10.13). IINA proved a perfect successor, with some unique strengths of its own, although I so far keep VLC for DVD related needs.

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
