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.

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?

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.
