    3. IINA is born to be a modern macOS application, from its framework to user interface. It adopts the post-Yosemite design language and keeps up the pace of new technologies like Force Touch, Touch Bar and Picture-in-Picture. Revolutionary user experience.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      Good design, no glitches, good subtitle support and rendering, easy and accessible settings (video, audios, subs). It's not as complete as Potplayer or other Windows players, but is the best FOSS video player I found for MacOs. Recommended

    4. GOM Player is a freeware media player. Key strengths are the ability to play the majority of media files without the need to obtain a codec, and the ability to play some broken media files, both advantages over traditional players, like Windows Media Player.
