This is the best FREE replacement for the built in quicktime player on MacOS. It can play content from any container. mov Mp4 MkV Avi WebM and many more. I was so frustrated with the lack of file format support with quicktime so I gave this a shot and it works great.

WOW! I'll be writing a full review, but for now I'm impressed. Thanks for everyone being part of this.

usually when I write a review it is mixed with some negatives. For now I cannot report any significant drawbacks to this app, so install, try, enjoy.

  • OK, if compared to VLC player than VLC player has its drawbacks to and one of the major drawbacks is it glitches on some recent encodes. I cannot report the same thing with iina. also, the playback history is a superior feature against VLC player. multiple instances are possible without a need of configuring a VLC droplet. but this review shouldn't be about VLC player.
  • A few improvements could be made or left at four be set in preferences:
    -- when using picture in picture mode you cannot fast forward or back.
    -- when starting the player the recent file could be started by just hitting the enter button, no mouse is needed.

-- Also picture in picture latches itself either two left top or bottom or right top or bottom but not for example two middle or somewhere custom or getting out of the way if you try to hold the mouse over it or something like getting out of the way.

Absolute best media player for Mac, does everything you need or might want it to, like vlc but just better, cleaner UI and lightweight.

Perfectly in line with MacOS design. Lightweight, it just works, and has a few goodies like automatic subtitle download, picture-in-picture, etc.

Love that it plays the next video file residing in the working folder so you don't have to go back to finder after a file finished downloading.

Without a doubt, IINA is the best player app I have ever used on Mac. Way better than the well-known VLC. You won't be disappointed after you switched from VLC to this amazing app.

VLC is already a very good piece of software but, if you're using a macOS computer, IINA is even better. It's lightweight, the UI is very clean and it has even more functionalities than VLC.
